Your psu is most likely at fault this can happen whenm the voltage selecter is on the wrong setting if that still doesnt work try and replace it . If its still doing the same thing then most likely your motherboard is shot

Power steering pump on my 2001 mini one stays on when the ignithion is turned off


It is not your ps pump that is staying on, it is the ps pump COOLING FAN located below the pump. On 2001-05 Minis, this fan is wired directly into the wiring of the main radiator cooling fan, which has two speeds, low and high. When the engine compartment temperature reaches a certain level, the main radiator fan is supposed to come on, and since the ps cooling fan is also wired into that, it is supposed to also come on. But, that low fan speed is achieved by routing power to a resistor, located at the top back of the radiator on passenger side, that cuts the power down. This resistor is highly prone to corrosion and failure. When that happens, neither the main radiator cooling fan nor the ps pump cooling fan can come on UNTIL the engine compartment temperature reaches an alarming level, which switches through a relay power directly to the fans, by-passing the resistor. By then both fans are attempting to bring the temperature back down to a safe level. Then, if you turn your engine off before the temperature reaches the lower threshold so that the fans are still running, the ps pump cooling fan will just keep right on running, as there will be no relay signal given to turn it off, and your battery will be drained.
To fix this, the resistor either needs to be replaced, or, the resistor can simply be removed and the contacts jumped. This last fix will mean that when the lower temperature threshold is reached, the main radiator cooling fan will come on at full speed, and the ps pump cooling fan will also come on. After my ps pump failed due to fan failure, I did this to my '03 Mini, and have run it for years this way. No more ps pump problems. You do need to make sure you keep the fan clear of debris and freely turning, or you could have bigger problems, like a fire, since the wires will get very hot sending power to the fan motor when the fan is bound up with the motor not turning. A blown fuse will often be the first indication of a fan bound up.

Toshiba A135-S4527 starts to power up then shuts down.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Hello Thomas, that is a power supply problem, the entire PS board unit is usually replaced by a new/refurbish one. Have this replaced.

When powered up picture comes on very dim then it turns off but unit fans stay on for 5 minutes then shuts down all the while the power button is flashing.


You most likely need a new light bulb. The bulb is an Osram P-VIP 180/230w. Just google it, or here is a link to it: http://www.purelandsupply.com/D1000-Bulb-Cinego-Lamp-Bulbs.html They cost about $180 new. Good luck!

PS - Be sure NOT TO TOUCH the bulb when you replace it. The oil in your finger skin will cause the lamp to fail early.

Power switch light is on but no other poweris getting through, changed the power supply but same problem. light comes on power button but power supply fan doesn't even come on.


No beeps are heard, no CPU fan is turning on, only blinking yellow light. This brand usually experiences this problem.
  1. First, check the power supply. Disconnect connectors from the board and make a jumper wire for the green wire to any black wire. If the PS fan does not spin then it's busted, else proceed below.
  2. Reconnect connectors except the one with 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, then switch on. If CPU fan turns on then you have a bad processor.
  3. If the fan is still not turning on then check the USB port pins for short circuit.. disconnect it from the board and switch on.
  4. Do the same with other hardware connected to the board.
PS: The metallic casing of computers must be connected to the common ground of the power utility to protect it from stray currents that result to damage of sensitive components such as processors, memory and hard disks.

Won't turn on - PS light on but no PS fan


Surely sounds like the power supply is in need or replacement, or fuse replacement at absolute least.  the fuse that you will be in search of will be located inside of the power supply unit.  Use caution when working inside the power supply.  If you don't see a fuse in the power supply, OR you come to find that the fuse is not damagaed then you will likely need to replace the power supply.
