You need to replace the motherboard if the pc is auto shutting off, maybe even the processor!

The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached

Gateway Laptop MC8741 will not turn on. Replaced battery....replaced power cord. Noticed that fan was not working a day prior.


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

If both motherboards are LGA775 socket, then the next concern is whether or not the case is capable of having the new motherboard installed into it. Disconnect all power cables to all dv drives or cd drives and hard drives. Disconnect all ribbons from drives to the mother board. If you can get to all of the screws that hold the motherboard into the case, you get away without removing drives. Once you've got the motherboard then you can disconnect the power cable from the motherboard. Remove the memory chips, disconnect the sound cable from the old motherboard. install the memory chips onto the new mobo, Connect the power cable to the new mobo, then install the new mobo into the case. Replace the ribbons from the drives to the mobo, replace the power cables to the drives and reinstall the sound cable to the cd or dv drive. You should be done now.

Please try to remove all the connections from your computer and also connections inside the motherboard, the power cord for your hard drives and also the power cord from the power supply to your motherboard.After that, remove the memory and clean the pin by using an eraser of the pencil. And then insert again the memory stick and connect all the connections from the power supply to motherboard and everything. Lastly reset your bios and put it back to normal again. Hope this would help. Thanks..

MSI x48c mobo keeps powering on and off. Won't post. No video signal. Video card and power supply and memory are all new and all work in other computers.


your motherboard is bad. Try the following before RMA'ng it.

1. Remove all the cards and memory.
2. Recheck your power supply connections
3. Remove, clean the thermal paste and reapply new
thermal paste (follow the manufacturer's directions)
4. Reseat the CPU.
5. Install one stick of ram
6. If the motherboard has an onboard video connect your monitor to it.
7. Try powering it up.

If that works, add the rest of the memory a stick at a time. If the system continues to power up, then install the Video card, and test again. Finally if everything is functional, chalk up the previous problems to bad karma. If the system fails to power up, and stay powered up after adding a component, then that is the faulty part.

Computer will not boot


Hi Zany913,

3 and 4 solid green lights indicate that the memory is detected but there is an error. First reseat the memory modules. Then try one at a time.

If nothing happens, I'm afraid you'll need to call dell for replacement RAM.

I hope this helps,
Adam

Do you have a video card installed or are you using the built-in video? If yes, check the video card if it is installed in the motherboard firmly, first unplug the power cord in the power supply then try removing the card then install it again in the agp slot carefully pushing it firmly, then put the power cord back to the power supply and try to power it on. Does it have a display now?

If the video is still blank try reinstalling the memory module in the motherboard, first turn the pc off then unplug the power cord, next remove the memory modules from the motherboard by simultaneously pushing locks on each side of the memory, then use a clean paint brush to remove any dust on the memory modules copper contacts and also clean the memory slots in the motherboard, then install the memory back to the slot making sure to match the notch near the middle of the memory to the memory slot in the motherboard, and also make sure that the locks on each side is firm. Then connect the power cord to the power supply then turn it on. Does it have a display now?

In the condition where your using the built in video and a known working memory and still there is no display, the motherboard could be defective already.
