Won't boot up

I just built a new system and when I powered it up for the first time, all the fans turned on and it sounds like the drives are being accessed but I never hear any beeps and my screen displays nothing. What should I do next?

Hi,

First of all make the memory is seated properly and that the motherboard supports the clock speed of it, i.e 400-800 MHz.

Then make sure that the processor is seated properly, take the processor out and put it back in.

Next if you are using a AGP graphics card and not any on-board graphics make sure the card is seated properly in the slot. A good idea to test the system is to use the on-board graphics port first.

Also clear the CMOS with the jumper that should next to the motherboard battery. If there is no jumper there remove the lead from the back of the unit and then take the motherboard battery out for around 20 minutes periodically hittting the on/off button to drain any residual power from the motherboard.

After 20 minutes are up put the battery back in and power the machine up.


Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help.


Regards.

It booted up once, and now fails?

Quite likely it is defective. If it booted once, it should boot again.

Make sure the little SQUARE 4-wire plug from the power supply is also plugged into the Mobo. Commonly overlooked, and can drive you nuts trying to figure out.

Best 'o luck, Barry.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

After power on Fans are running but no Videosignal, no bios startup.


Could be 3 things Memory or CPU or Powersupply. are you getting any beeps if so how many, how long. try taking all the memory out and powering up see if it beeps if so try to put one stick of memory in at a time and see if it will boot. if you get no beeps with memory out check powersupply some PS's have a red switch on back for current input. switch back and fourth about 20 times uning a pen and set it to the right current for you location. put ram back in see if it will boot if not its trial and error of the PS and the CPU replacement and it still could be the RAM giving false readings. yea i know sounds like a ball of fun.

Power goes off by itself, then boots up again


In computers, any number of problems can cause this - bad RAM, bad hard drive, fried voltage regulator(chip in a laptop), overheating cpu, overheating video card/gpu, there are even a few device drivers that can do this if they become corrupt. Usually, however, its not an issue with the power supply/power source.

I would try swapping the RAM with new(or known good) sticks. Also, make sure the system is clean, and no dust has built up in it, especially in/around the fans.

If the RAM swap is unsuccessful, and the system is clean, check and make sure the fans spin when the system is on.

Power down the system, disconnect the data and power cable from the Hard Drive, and turn the computer back on - you won't get into the OS, but you'll be able to determine if the issue occurs w/o the hard drive connected.

Ultimately, it may come down to a bad motherboard.

Unit will not power on


If dust has built up in any of the cooling fans the system will detect that the fan is not turning and will not power up...The fans have an internal switch that tells the system not to boot ...blow out your fans and try again..the same thing happened to my plasma wouldn't boot..blew out fans and it was fine after that

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
