It could also be the processor, either its overheating or it has simply packed up first check that the heatsink above it has been correctly installed and is resting directly on top of the processor and that the fan on the heatsink is functioning. If that doesnt work then replace the processor completely.

I had the same problem. It was bad RAM module. At the bios setup, turn off Fast Boot at Post Behavior. This will check your memory more extensively.

Dell 2400 desktop pc will not turn on. Mother board flea led light does turn on.Tested power switch and wiring okay.I did swap power supply pack from a good working 2350 Dell pc same problem any...


Try to remove all components all drives (hard drives, cd/dvd roms, floppy drives, etc), all additional cards (modem, video card, sound card etc), remove the memory. Just leave the motheboard, proc and power supply. Before disconnecting everything completely discharge power by holding down the power button while the computer is unplug from the power. It should clear the flea light on the motherboard.
Test it again with just the motherboard, processor and the power supply. If still no power then most likely it is the motherboard since you already put a known good power supply. Motherboard has higher failure rate than the processor. You can swap a known good processor if there is.

I have this motherboard and it won't post. The HD light stays on but does not appear to be spinning. I swapped HD's...same problem. I think the MB is bad. Any suggestions on what to check next?


If the mother board will not complete the POST, (Power On Self Test) changing the drive will have no effect. You might want to remove all memory and check again ... your memory could be causing the problem. Remove all boards and attachments except mouse, keys and monitor of course so you can see what is going on.

If it will not POST, get another board.

Basics ... always go back to basics.

I just bought a used (or refurbished) MSI 845GE MAX MOTHERBOARD (478 pin, etc) and plugged in my Radeon 9550XL AGP 8x (4x compatible) card, (2) 512MB Sticks of Mushkin DDR2 (PC3200) RAM, Random IED HD, DVD...


Did you try another graphics card? If this motherboard does not have onboard graphics then try another card. AGP slots go bad sometimes too. I've had that happen.

PC won't 4power on.


Failures in the motherboard, memory, or any installed card could cause that symptom. All I can suggest based on the above information is remove memory one piece at a time and retest, remove/reseat video card if you have one, and attempt to reset the CMOS using the jumper on the board. You might also try removing the battery on the board and unplugging everything, then attempt to reboot.

Dell Dimension 5100 power up problem


I had same issue with dimension 5100 Desktop. I work at Circuit City as the Lead Technician. I found that swapping the power supply did fix the problem! When i initially tested the power supply with a standard power supply tester, the power supply appeared normal. But after swapping the PC works great. Thx for the good idea!
