With this symptoms almost sure Power Supply died.

Try to substitute for a new one, at least to test.

Good luck

Dell Inspiron 518 Solid Amber light on power button. My power went out today and i turned my computers back on and this happend. All fans are running.


Your computer has failed the Power On Self Test.

Be sure to check all external connections as well as the connections within the computer chassis. Clean the Gold fingered connections of the RAM modules and Graphics card with tissue paper.

Also go through my published guide entitled, My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! for additional help and information.

You may need to clear the BIOS/CMOS.

Take care!

When i switch on the monitor the on/off button blinks and i don't get a picture. johanalvemalm@people.net.au


Most monitors will behave that way if they don't get a signal from the computer so there's nothing to display. A quick check of the monitor itself is to disconnect the signal cable from the computer and then turn the monitor on. Most monitors will display some kind of a message that there's no input and to check your cable connection. Then the power indicator changes color as the monitor blanks out.

You will probably find that your computer isn't starting up when you turn on the power. A common computer problem is that it will turn on when you press the power button, showing a power light and you'll hear the fans inside start running, but it never actually starts running. Then there's no video to the monitor and you see the trouble you described.

The monitor may still be bad. If everything seems to be starting normally and you hear the Windows startup sound through your speakers, but the display stays blank, try another monitor. If that one works, you'll need to have the bad one serviced or replace it. If the test monitor is also blank, the video circuitry in your computer has failed. If the video is built into the motherboard, you can install a plug-in video card as a replacement.

If the computer is turning on but never starts running, that can be a pain to figure out because several things can cause the trouble. The most frequent causes are a bad power supply or motherboard. Bad RAM or a defective drive or other device connected to the motherboard can also keep the board from starting up. The processor itself can fail, but that's not common. I start by removing everything except for the power supply, processor and fan to see if the motherboard is starting. If the motherboard doesn't give a "no memory" error (usually a long beep), you need a power supply or motherboard. Otherwise, the basic hardware is fine, and you can start replacing parts until the trouble comes back, and then you'll know what caused it.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

I started setting up an intel d865perl today and i'm pretty sure i did everything right, i followed diagrams read manuals and such but when i plug in the power cord it immediately starts and there a green...


1. There is a BIOS SETUP setting to "automatically start after a power outage" -- this is useful for "servers".

2. If you press and HOLD the power-button for TEN seconds, the computer should shut itself off.

3. Turn the computer off, disconnect the "data" cable to the HDD (hard-disk-drive) and then turn the computer on. Does the HDD lamp still light-up?

4. Do you get any on-screen video when it starts to start-up?

Common issue on HP dv6000. You will need to get to the GUP and reflow it with a heatgun. Try this hp pavilion repair guide. It contains step by step instructions on how to take apart the system and fix the issue with the video. www.msbin.com/hp

My Acer Aspire 9300 laptop wont turn on......light indicators are on (motherboard light blinks once, light bulb and battery lights on) but no power to fans so no start up. have had this happen before but...


Very possible that something has short circuited on the motherboard. I would also try re-seating the memory located on the bottom of the laptop(which could be loose explaining the intermittent nature of the issue). On an IBM I once fixed that had the same issue I took out the CMOS battery and battery for one week and then re-installed and that fixed the issue. But good luck to you!

Hardlocked;beeping and red light on motherboard;will not restart


Something on the motherboard has failed, and the RED light confirms it.
Turn your computer off.

Remove ALL of the RAM. Turn your computer on.
Do all the fan(s) start to spin?

Do you get the _same_ "beeps" as before, or some different pattern of beeps?

If it has more than one stick of RAM (and the RAM is _NOT_ labelled 'DDR2'),
then remove all but one stick of RAM, turn your computer on, and try to reboot.
Same beeps?

Turn your computer off, try a different single (or pair of) sticks of RAM.

Caution: before doing any of the above, your computer could be within the "WARRANTY" period,
i.e., it could be fixed/replaced for free!

Computer does not boot


If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.

BIOSTAR K8M800 Micro AM2 wont boot


It's suppose to do that. These motherboards are new generation. After everything is ready to go, you plug the power cord to the wall and pc. The computer power supply fan spins for about 3 seconds or so and maybe a few lights blink. This is normal. Its kind of a self diagnostic telling itself (I'm ok, you can power me on now). Did I answer your guestion? If not, let me know.
