Re: still motherboard green light
Hay harjeet83, that green light you see by the CPU is just letting you know there is power to the board. Unfortunately Intel does not give up much information regarding the 915 Chipset. The other things I can suggest are to look at the capacitors on the board. See if any show deformation usually located at the top of the capacitors. You can enter the bios & check the hardware monitor. Hardware monitor will show the temp of the CPU, motherboard & speed of the CPU fan.Some user’s have the fan speed set too high for the CPU, like 1200rpm & the bios will shut down the PC.If you’re memory gets too hot you’re system can shut down. In the end if none of the others I mentioned seem fine than swapping out the PSU can not hurt. Keep in mind there is very little support for the 915 chipset. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1765&lang=eng

I would need to know what all you are trying to run in your computer to offer much assistance, but hot plugging power cords in computers is a good way to fry the motherboard. It sounds like you don't have a big enough power supply for everything you are trying to power, so that when you connect enough of the power plugs, the supply shuts down from trying to draw to much current.
If you post your hardware specs, I will try to offer more assistance.
Most obvious problem would be the power supply. The green LED only indicates that the 5V rails os working enough to power the on/off circuit on the motherboard. First disconnect everything except the mother board from power supply. Then try switching on again. If this does not work, then disconnect the power connectors from the motherboard. ON the big power connector (P1) there should be a green wire with two black wires either side. This is the power on sensor wire. Use a paper clip or similar bit if wire to short out the green wire with one of the black wires. This should start the power supply and the fan in the PSU should spin. If this does not work then the PSU is definately faulty. If it switches on when there is no load connected then it is probably only slightly faulty (not able to provide sufficient current). Since the green LED is coming on, my guess is that you have bad capacitors in the PSU (they will probably have domed tops instead of flat). Try a power supply from another PC if possible.
check vga cable is it connected properly to the monitor
check motherboard light is it on that means getting elec supply
now take out the RAM chips and re seat them see if it helps
take out all of ur peripheral cards pci and see if it works in case of conflict sometimes display doesnt comes on
ur hard disk is making noise and the acctivity light is flashing that means it is loading OS normally that means RAM MB HARD DISK OS are ok and ur VGA card is having problem also try to connect other monitor if u have if u dont see any hard disk activity then RAM is the main cuprit try changign RAM chips
one more thing try VGA card ext one if u have embedded one
pls do the trouble shooting and always check ur system on every step in sequence it will help u in finding the problem
First are you sure it is the CPU fan and not the Power Supply fan? Open up the case and make sure the power supply cable is snug into the slot. Make sure that Pin 1 is lined up with Pin 1 on the motherboard. There should be a notch or red dot or different looking Pin to show you where pin 1 is...sounds like it may be a connection problem from power supply to motherboard...try that and let me know what happens we have other options but have to start somewhere..
did't understand ur problem fully but i think ur heat sink or the fan on the processor that could be the problem or smps that means the power supply could be trashed. and ur power chord could be damaged. one more thing check ur computers ram . and if still it don't even start i think ur board is dead. sorry
Say properly. There are two green light. One is for motherboard power indicating green light and the other one is for when the PC is started then a green light indicates. Which one you indicating plz explai. Hope then you get the solve
What i have understand that u r Motherboard getting the power supply but i want to know that is u r SMPS power supply fan rotating or not if no then u have to change the SMPS if it is ratating then u have check the power switch in u CPU cabinate is that power switch wire properly connected to the motherboard if it is connected then check wether it is connected in right place or not i hope this information will going to help you.
