Acer aspire m3640 no power light hard drive light on


Check/reseat monitor cables. If the fan and HDD are running, perhaps the power led is out. Check the monitor cable connections. Is the monitor plug into AC? Turned on? Shut down Desktop , unplug, reseat Graphics Card, if applicable, reboot.

What causes red led on starting?


Remove Power Cord then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put the cord back in and try to start it.

When you press the Power Button are you hearing the fans run, the disk drive running, the cd drive click and the light on it comes on for a second or two?

Anything shows up on the LCD Screen?

If you press the power button and absolutely nothing is happening then you most likely have a bad power supply.

If you press the power button and you start hearing beep sounds or blinking lights in a continuous pattern (ex. 1 long followed by 2 short) then you have a motherboard issue. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with the computer.

PC start up failer


  1. remove the two rear screws and remove all the cards attached to the main board
  2. unplug all the cables that connect from the drives to the board.
  3. power on the unit
  4. if the unit powers up, install one of the cards you removed and complete step 3
  5. if the system does not power up, the last card or device activated will be your culprit and will need to be replaced or left out.


if you find that your system will not show a bios splash screen with all the other components removed, then you are looking at either a video, or power supply failure. Listen to your system for spinning fans and hdd activity. touch the hdd if you cant hear it when you power up the system, paying close attention to when the drive activates. It should activate almost immediatley, pause, and then run for a short boot period. if nothing, then if may be your power supply. you will not be able to see any lights at all, no light on the motherboard, drives, or power LED is the best indicator of a shot power supply


Good luck, please rate this post

Gateway 503gr has no power, the standby light flashes green when I remove power. Tried new PS and the standby LED stays lit. I then tried both new and old PS disconnected from board and shorted...


Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.

With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.

Hp530 Ultra Slim starts and stop after 3-20sec


I have had this once before, and then it was one of the hard disk cables which was interfering with the fans inside the case. In my PC it was the PSU fan which was being halted. Try moving the cables around inside the case and ensure none of the corners where they are folded are protruding into any of the fans.

Motherboard shuts down before booting !


You should clarify this a bit more, but please make sure all of your fans are plugged in and the no jumpers are set to over-clock the processor.Also, double check that everything is fundamentally compatible.
