    Lights come on with either batter or AC but not booting.



    I tried draining the power as HP described: remove AC and battery and hold power button on for 1 minute....n.g.



    Is there a battery on the mother board I can remove and put back or drain further?

My guess is to check the battery. If your laptop allows it (you won't know until you try), remove the battery and use AC power and try turning it on. If the laptop works correctly through AC power and without the battery, try to replace the battery to see if the problem is caused by the battery. Remember that all batteries lose their ability to store power after every recharge until they just drain power.

Otherwise, I don't have a clue what the problem is.

Why doesn't it start?


i am not sure what you mean by resolved LED errors. These lights in the back tell you that the BIOS is checking your hardware and the way to correct that is by replacing the faulty hardware. For example you determine memory is bad and you replace it. Make sure that is connected properly. You can do this with all hardware. Disconnect everything except the cables from the power supply to the motherboard and try. contact me if you wish at Ccarlos4545@aol.com.

The led on the front won't light, and I have power connected, but nothing. Is there a reset somewere?


I am assuming you are trying to power up an installed motherboard, based on the category selection. You say that you have power connected. That means that you have connected the 20 (24) pin main connector and the 4 or 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard. Have you connected the front panels controls to the motherboard header? There are connections for the power switch, power LED, HDD LED, reset switch (optional). They must be connected in order for the motherboard to start. THe HDD and Power LED connections are polarity-based, so if you hook them upo backwards, their respective LED will not light. The HDD LED plug is usually red and white with the red being on the positive (+) terminal. The Power LED plug is usually green and white with the green wire going to the positive terminal. The power switch and reset switch wires can be connected either way as they are not polarized.

If the motherboard is not booting then what is the solution for it?


To detect motherboard problem you need first test your memory, remove any drives and try to boot to BIOS, if nothing on LCD then try to boot with external monitor, if there is no any video signal output then look to led indicators, if there no light then you need to test power adapter, power socet on motherboard and fuse on moserboard near power socet, if power OK then try to reball south bridge or replace it, also you need to do it with 100% working CPU and memory!

I have an Abit IC7-G motherboard. Machine has died with no reaction from pressing power on and reset buttons. Power cable in is OK and when connected, green light behind IDE1 socket lights up (which says...


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.

Everything was working fine, then one day I switch...


Try to check your CPU unit it maybe have a power when you turn it on. Or just check their power suppy at the back when it works. If you check that all and it works normal just check inside your computer and try to see the Power LED (Light Emiting Diode) of the motherboard if have a light. Because if it is have a light your motherboard is good and if it is no light in the Power LED of the motherboard that was damage. But if your motherboard does not have installed Power LED try to check the CPU Fan it maybe works properly it because the CPU Fan was conncected in the motherboard if did not works the motherboard is also damage and need to replace. But if the CPU Fan was working properly, try to hold the CPU Heatsink if it is very hot the damage is your micro processor.

EMachine T2482 Computer won't power on or boot up.


Try removing the power cable from the power supply. Wait 10 seconds, and replace it again. Try powering up the computer. If it doesn't power up, check that the motherboard has power (there should be a LED on the board which is lit up. Of course, check the fuse also in the plug.

If the LED is on, you have a failed motherboard / Switch. If the LED is off, then you have a failed power supply. Beware though, if the PSU has blown, it could easily have taken the motherboard with it.

Emachine t6532 motherboard issue???


Is your new SUP has the same specs with the old SUP? like voltage output, WATTS etc....

Usually motherboards have a led light in it that will light up when its connected on SUP.

regarding the wire placements for power and led connectors, you can view it in your users manual.

First, try replacing the power supply. If this does not work then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.

A7V8X NOTHING HAPPENING,


When a power supply goes out the way yours did, it's going to fry the MB 99% of the time. So you're going to need a new MB. It's possible that you CPU is ok, but that could also go too. I would replace the MB first, then the CPU if that doesn't work.
