Processor issue? bios/motherboard?

The laptop powers on fine. Fan rotating as long as its powered on. Even the cd-rom shows signs of activity(blinking lights). But no reaction from the hard drive. Doesn't boot to bios. Nothing on the lcd screen-eigther not even the averatec logo (total blankness). Doesn't detect keyboard/mouse(no lights on caps lock etc.). Memory is good, beeps when ram is detached. help?

First, Pull the hard drive. If the hard drive shorts out it can cause all sorts of problems. Generally it detects Hdd before mouse and keyboard.

    If the hard drive is shorted there will be no activity, no post no error and possible damage to the board.

Just now i shut down my computer normally, an hour later when i tried switching it on again i cannot, the monitor dosent show any image, it even not shows the BIOS, the fan tuns just for a while and then...


It sounds like a hardware problem. Check the obvious like the power cables and plug it into a different wall socket to make sure that isn't the problem.

Does the computer beep when it starts up. The pattern of these 'POST' beeps can help you determine the problem. However if the computer doesn't beep, doesn't activate the BIOS and the hard drive doesn't spin up (with the HD light flickering) then you either have a fried motherboard or processor. Not an easy or cheap thing to fix.

Failed to boot, i cant even get to the bios! only the fan running, led(green) and (red) indicator doesn't even light.


Dear Client, unpluged all the data cables, power cables or wires, bios cell and RAMs. Everything should be unpluged from the motherboard for two hours and then reassmbled. It will work properly but when you reassembled it just plug with the follwing devices.

* Power Cables
* Data Cables
* Bios cell
* Processor + Fan
* RAMs

Do not attach CD-Rom or Hard Disk, just turn on the computer without Hard Disk and CD-Rom and try to enter in bios setup. I assure your problem will be solve. Now you can attach the CD-Rom and then try to boot up from the CD-Rom and in the last you should try to attach Hard-Disk. I hope you will do it step by step and get success.


Good Luck

If the drive functions in another system the the issue is either the motherboard contacts or the controller. Flash the BIOS to the most current version and reset the BIOS defaults. If the drive still doesn't detect, then a motherboard replacement is likely in order.

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting


check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

D865GVHZ mother board Doesnt boots


Hi,
If everything was working fine before, and you flashed bios unsuccessfully, then yes, if would be a bios problem.

If you didn't flash the bios you should check the connections on your monitor. If that's okay then check your memory, hard drive and cpu.

Good luck,
Hank

If you can't get past the bios boot then likely its a problem with the bios settings or a hardware issue on the motherboard. Make sure the processor fan is running when it turns on.
