This could possibly be due to the wiring of the button itself. If you consider yourself to be even remotely tech sauvy, try this.

  1. Remove the side panels. This should be fairly simple to do.
  2. Locate 2 wires connected to the button. These will probably be thin red and black wires.
  3. GENTLY check to make sure if they are both connected to the button.
  4. If not, you will have to soder it back on.
Hope this helped! Tell me how it worked out!

I have a 4500 John Deer tractor that typically won't start in cold temperatures (i.e. 39 or below) otherwise it starts promptly. I've pushed the key in to heat the glow plug a minute or more.


The 4500 John Deere tractor sounds like the glow plugs are not working. Checked voltage at the glow plugs to make sure that there is 12 DC volts.(Might have to remove main wire from the glow plugs to check!) If no voltage at glow plugs there maybe a bad fuse,relay or wire connection in the glow plug circuit. If there is 12 DC volts at the glow plugs, it is possible that the glow plugs need to be replaced.

Hi,
Considering the change in time and date,I would suggest you replace the CMOS battery.This battery helps in memory storage of your PC.
Have you tried the charger on another PC maybe?Try it,and if it fails replace it.
Remove the hard disk and re-fix it again.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Go to to eBay and search for "Computer 20 / 24 Pin PSU ATX SATA HDD PC Power Supply Tester". costs less than $10 USD, It will verify the PS unit is good, then you can determine if there is a problem with the motherboard. Bad PS is most likely the source of start problems for PC motherboards.

There is no toggle/powerbutton on the face of the tower


If this is atx power it should be just push to on button look for something that can be depress. On motherboard connection follow motherboard manual. It should be on a header. Together with the reset, power led light, hd LED and the power itself.

My Acer RC500 don't start up anymore.


Check the motherboard for obvious bulging capacitors. If you don't see any you still might have bad caps. Additionally you may have a faulty power supply.
