If you can get into bios check if it recognizes the RAM and the Hard Drive, if it does not find the hard drive, check the HD cables for untighted cable, change the power cable, look for damaged pins or wrongly inserted cable (on an IDE HD data cable),
do you hear the (tric-tric-tric) of the HD when the computer starts?, the HD may be damaged.

Try extracting the video card and reinstall pressing firmly.

pull out the mainboard battery, wait 10 sec. and restore (even better replace with new one), you will need to recalibrate the bios date and time (and other settings if they where changed).

If your display is not coming then try the below steps to resolve it.
  1. Unplug your system to avoid power shocks
  2. Open the cabinet and look for RAM on the mother board.
  3. Take that RAM out of the slot and clean it with "IP".This is a type of chemical and let it dry.If you are not having IP then clean it with an ordinary "Eraser"
  4. Then put it in the slot very carefully.
  5. Plug the power and see that display is there or not ,if not then again turn off the power and take the RAM out
  6. Put it in the other slot and try again.
  7. If you are successful then close the cabinet.
  8. If you are not getting display then try changing Ram.
  9. Also check the on board video card.
Thanks
Have a great day

Blue light on power button on, but Monitor shows "no signal"


If you tried replacing your power supply but still cannot put your PC to turn on, you should try checking your memory or your RAM. try reconnecting it, clean the lids of the RAM using an eraser, make sure you erase the lids on one direction and try reconnecting it again.

1. After reconnecting the RAM, try to unplug any hard disks connected to your motherboard, remove external PCI cards or if you have external video card remove it and use the built-in video card.

2. Make sure that the connectors from your power supply going through your motherboard is not loose, dont overtighten as it may possible that you can damage your motherboard from pushing through it.

3. Now turn on your computer, if it works, then your RAM must have been faulty or you have loose connections. Try to plug the hard disks and turn on again your computer, if you tried plugging in every devices and if theres an instance that your computer didnt turn on after you have plugged in that device, then the problem will be on that device that you have just plugged, and that made the computer from not responding.

It really helps alot if you have a spare device because you can test if, the one youre using works well by replacing it with a device that in no doubt that works well.

These are just basics on troubleshooting, and i hope it will helped you troubleshoot your PC or more computers in the future.

Any clarifications or future problems, i would be happy to help you. =)

Lenivo 3000 J series will not boot. Get nothing.


Check the capacitors on the motherboard, I have 3 units that did the same thing. See how many are bulging on the top, they should be flat.
Check the ones around the cpu or the video card slot.

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.

Make sure the cpu is seated properly. It should only go in one way. Also make sure you have applied a good thermal paste between the cpu & heatsink. Check and reseat RAM. Then try rebooting. Hope this helps.
