Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty because a computer has to have an end to the circuit any fulty leads will lead to no boot up
good luck

    No drives attached at all during testing, so drives are not the problem. No PCI boards installed, either. Swapped power supplies, CPUs, CPU fans and memory sticks -- same result. Systems suddenly stopped working while in service.

    there must be some leads attached to hard drive IDE/SATA i had a similar problem and replaced the electrical extension lead worked for a while then the lead from motherboard to hard drive bingo fixed so a bad/faulty lead can cause your computer to shut down/fail

    Tested all switches, LEDs, et cetera. Bare minimum configuration - NO DRIVES OR PCIs. All PSs work in other systems. Other mobos work in these crates.

Never boot when start up


That's because you have a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail

How do I know this?

1) IF all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 WATT of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what processor it is.

Your motherboard?

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/desktops/desktop-board-dh61ww-classic-brief.html

With the LGA 1155 processor socket, and the Intel H61 Express chipset, it can support Intel Core i5, and Core i7 processors.
(That use an LGA1155 processor socket)

Information on the Intel H61 Express chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_i_Series_chipsets

List of Intel Core i5 processors, that use the LGA1155 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.28dual-core.2C_32_nm.29

95 Watts maximum (TDP) Also scroll down.

List of Intel Core i7 processors, that use the LGA1155 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#Sandy_Bridge_microarchitecture

95 Watts M-A-X-I-M-U-M. (TDP = Thermal Design Point) Also scroll down.

What is happening?
Primer;
You press the Power On button. This plastic button in turn, presses against the Power On switch. A Momentary Contact Switch.

The brief closing of the Power On switch, closes the Soft Power On circuit, in the Power Supply.
The Power Supply turns on.

The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. The BIOS program starts.

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP, and Windows 7, are two examples of an O/S)

When BIOS goes to turn the Processor on, the Power Supply 'falls flat on it's face'.

Has to enough power to light a few little LED lights, and maybe spin a fan, or two, but NOT enough power for the Processor.

The monitor is stating No Signal, because there is no video signal coming from the computer. This is because the computer is not working, because of that bad Power Supply.

[Weak voltage power rail ]

Want to know how to test the Power Supply?

Intel dx 58 so board with i7 930 no boot no beep intel send me new board but the problem is same with new board


Intel sent you a new board, so it's probably not the board that's at fault. The next thing to try should be a new power supply. Just because the system turns on when you press the power button, it does not mean the supply is working properly. You may be able to borrow a supply for testing. Then try a new processor IC if the trouble continues.

Hi would like to know in which order the components start on a intel extreme dx 58S0 motherboard,eg 1.processor 2.maybe ram ,then keyboard ect.


1) Installing? I don't think this is your problem/question, but............

Processor on the motherboard, Thermal paste on the top of the Processor, Heatsink/Fan combo on on the top of the Processor.
Ram Memory Installed.
Motherboard installed in case.
Graphics card installed, and all other add-in cards.
Optical and card reader drives installed.
Power Supply installed, power cables attached.


2) Are you are looking at the order in which BIOS recognizes the devices?

You press the Power On button.
The plastic Power On button assembly presses against the Power On switch. The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

Example of a typical ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

When the Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts inside the Power Supply.
The 5 Volt Standby power.

Pressing the Power On switch closes the switch temporarily.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)
This redirects the 5 Volt Standby power to a different circuit in the Power Supply.
The Soft Power On circuit. (PS_ON)

The Power Supply comes on.
The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
The BIOS program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, both on the motherboard, and external peripheral devices.
BIOS then does a Ram Memory count, and turns the Processor on.
Finally BIOS hands the computer over to the Operating System.


3) This is a motherboard diagram.
CPU stands for Central Processing Unit.
Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

81865gvmx mother board when ipress the power switch cpu fan does not start and the set remains in dead condition.


its most likely either your power button or power supply having an issue ensure the power buttons wires are all connected correctly as per the key for the motherboard and if its still not starting try using a different power supply if its still not working than its most likely a dead motherboard

Hello there, I got Asus PC-DL Deluxe UAYZ motherboard and would like to connect to ATX 300W 20 pin power supply. Do you think it works, or should i wait till i find 24pin power supply. thanks for your...


This motherboard is designed to be used as a workstation or server. This mother board will need a specific power supply designed for this board as it can use 2 Xeon CPUs. Setting this board with the incorrect power supply will cause the system to not power up or at worse result in damage to the CPU, motherboard, memory, video and other devices including possibly the power supply. I suggest obtaining the proper power supply for this motherboard

The manual for this board states that the motherboard requires a 24 pin ATX power supply that also has an 8 pin 12 volt connector. The manual from ASUS recommends no less then a 300 Watt power supply. I would professionally recommend 500 watts or more if the system will use 2 CPUs and many hard drives in a RAID array.

A suitable power supply can be found here at Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817163111

The manual is here at ASUS's support site at http://support.asus.com/

My d530 minitower powers off unexpectedly and red lights starts to blink on System's LED//


Hi Kindly let me know how many times the red light blinks
Condition Code Service Actions Processor thermal protection activated. Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
  1. Make sure the computer air vents are not blocked and that the cooling fan is running.
  2. Open the hood, press the power button, and see if the processor fan spins. If the fan is not spinning, make sure the fan cable is plugged into the cable header on the system board, and that the fan is properly installed and seated.
  3. If the fan is plugged in and seated properly, but is still not spinning, replace the processor fan.
  4. Reseat the processor heatsink and make sure the fan assembly is attached to the heatsink properly.
Processor is not installed. Power LED blinks red three times, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
NOTE: This condition indicates a missing or improperly installed processor, not a defective one.

Make sure there is a processor in the system. Reseat the processor and verify that it is installed properly. Power failure (power supply is overloaded) Power LED blinks red four times, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
  1. Check the voltage selector, located on the rear of the power supply, is set to the correct voltage (the correct setting depends on the region).
  2. Open the hood and make sure the 4-wire power supply cable is fully connected to the power connector on the system board.
  3. Check if a device is causing the problem by removing all attached devices (such as disk drives and expansion cards), then power on the system. If the system enters POST, power off and replace one device at a time, repeating the procedure until the system power failure reoccurs. Replace the device that caused the failure, then replace each of the other devices and confirm that they are functioning properly.
  4. If you cannot isolate the failure to a specific device in the previous step, replace the power supply. **
  5. Replace the system board.*
Pre-video memory error. Power LED blinks red five times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and five simultaneous beeps are sounded
  1. Reseat the DIMMs in the memory slots on the system board, then power on the system.
  2. Replace the DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.
  3. Replace 3rd-party memory with HP memory.
  4. Replace the system board.*
Pre-video graphics error. Power LED blinks red six times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and six simultaneous beeps are sounded. For systems with a graphic card:

  1. Reseat the graphics card and then power on the system.
  2. Replace the graphics card.
  3. Replace the system board.*


For systems with integrated (on-board) graphics, replace the system board. PCA (system board) failure. ROM detected failure prior to video. Power LED blinks red seven times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and seven simultaneous beeps are sounded. Replace the system board. Invalid ROM based on bad checksum Power LED blinks red eight times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and eight simultaneous beeps are sounded.
  1. Reflash the ROM using a ROMPaq diskette.
  2. Replace the system board.*
System does not power on. No beeps or blinks since the system is not functioning. Press and hold the power button for less than four seconds. Perform the following steps depending on whether the hard drive LED turns green.

If the hard drive LED turns green, then:

  1. Make sure the voltage selector (which is located on the back of the power supply) is set to the correct voltage for your region.
  2. Remove the expansion cards one at a time until the 3.3V auxiliary light on the system board turns on. If removing a card turns the light on, replace the card and then see if the system works.
  3. Replace the system board.*


If the hard drive LED does not turn green, then:

  1. Make sure the computer is plugged into a functioning AC power outlet.
  2. Open the hood and make sure the power button is securely fastened in the power harness and that the harness is connected properly to the power connector on the system board. In other words, make sure that the power button is making contact with the power circuit.
  3. Make sure the power supply cables are connected properly to the power connectors on the system board.
  4. Check to see if the 3.3V auxiliary light on the system board is not turned on, replace the power supply. **
  5. Replace the system board.*

You probably have the case panel connections in the wrong places. Double check the board's manual and the connectors. Most case manufacturers have the connectors printed with their functions.

Intel D945GCLF - No post, No video Signal


Sounds like your wiring isnt right on the on off power. Make sure your power supply can handle this MotherboardAdapter cables are available that allow the incorrect use of older ATX or SFX power supplies in place of an ATX12V or SFX12V power supply. Intel does not recommend the use of these cables. These cables convert a standard 1x4 peripheral connector to the ATX12V 2x2 connector. An ATX12V or SFX12V with the 2x2 connector is required for all Pentium® 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Boards. Using the 1x4 converter cables can lead to system component or power supply damage and/or boot failures. The ATX12V and SFX12V power supply design guides (http://www.formfactors.org/)* recommend a minimum of 8A at 12Volts to properly power any Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. Standard ATX and SFX power supplies typically provide approximately 5A of current, which is not capable of reliably powering the Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. And I think the motherboards going to look for a formatted hard drive wired to the motherboard It wont boot off that USB stick.

Of course nothing will happen.
unplug power cord again.
plug power supply back into the board.
plug power cord backup and press power switch.
If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
