1. Check whether two power connectors are connected (one is 20 pin and the other 4 pin)
2. Remove all FRONT USB, Audio, HDD, CDRom and other connections on motherboard, except the power button connection now turn on.
3. If still does not, instead of Power button use reset button connection for Power button and try.
4. Check whether proper memory supporting type is installed in proper direction, try putting in another slot.
5. Change the SMPS eventhough it may be powering on.
6. Check the Motherboard by keeping it externally taking precautions.

My pc is not displaying, keyboard not coming on, sytem fan is running fast and the mouse is on please help me to fixya this. My email is aamos@webmail.co.za.


Sounds like you have a hardware problem. Try to isolate the problem first.
just retain the connection for power supply for the motherboard. disconnect the hard drive, optical drives connectors power / power supply Try to detach the memory and plug it back in. Do this with your video card as well. if you have other cards installed on your slot remove them first. just retain the video card. The idea is to just enable the basic parts to make your computer boot up (not up to the operating system since we remove the hard drives)

Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.

With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.

Computer does not boot, blue on light lites up but


Now when you say blue power light, what are the rest of the lights doing, does the hard drive light flash, does the fans turn on, does the hard drive make it's spinning noise, if so you may just have a bad LCD inverter which is very common and about a 40$ part. you can test this by trying to hook the laptop up to an external monitor and see what happens.

Try the following: 1. Reset the powermanager by pulling the battery and holding down the power switch for 5 seconds than wait a few more seconds reinstall the battery and plug in your power supply. Push the start button. You can watch the light on the magsafe adapter to confirm that the power manager resets. 2.If you still do not boot to the CD try booting while holding down the C or the option key. 3.If you still do not boot up and have a second mac: try booting into target disc mode connect to the other mac with a firewire cable and install your software on the hard drive remotely. Good luck

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen. The PC may not boot to windows, but it Does post at this point, and with that the problem is resolved. If windows does not load, then you have a new problem. Best dealt with asking a new question.

Good luck!

Ok..try this. Disable the flash screen and quick boot options in bios. What might be happening is the prompt to boot from CD isn't being displayed due to one of those two options.

No power to 12 volt, Hard drive, or Disk drives.


Retrace your steps there may be a loose wire(s). Have you checked and rechecked your pinouts? maybe one of the wires is backwards. Hate when that happens. It could be bad out of box. Try unhooking everything then one by one rehook your components. Maybe by terrible coinsidence a part fried and is preventing the machine from booting. Make sure your CPU fan is plugged in. I am installing a new motherboard now and those are the pitfalls I keep track of.
