Look for the bios battery on the motherboard,changed them as necessary.near that are three pins with a jumper on pins 1 & 2, remove the jumper and place on pins 2 & 3 for about 30 seconds.
Replace jumper back on pins 1 &2, this will reset bios to system defaults, and would surely counter check the system and hopefully it would boot.


After those steps, try considering reading through this link http://www.pctechbytes.com/repair/detail.php?PC-Will-Not-Boot-6
this would be a step by step guide on how to spot or trace the culprit causing you pc not to boot.
Replace or repair the found culprit upon checking with those steps.
but be sure to perform the steps with the plug(power cord removed from wall socket or power supply-avr) to prevent electrical shock.
hope his helps

Laptop has power but won't boot up


There are three possible reasons why it's acting like that.

1. Defective AC Adapter or Power cord
2. Defective Motherboard
3. Defective Battery

First off, you need to isolate the part which causing the issue. Please follow the following steps:

1. Remove the battery and use the power cord alone in powering up your computer. If it goes well, then you need to replace the battery. If no go, then try using a different known good outlet.

2. Check the acer power adapter (the box) if there's a light lit. If it's green, then it's should be working fine. If it's amber or nothing at all, then there's a problem with it. You might need to replace that.

3. If the AC adapter looks good, then try to wiggle the cord so that you can check if the cord is properly connected to the computer. Usually, cords get loose and it causes problems. If it has this kind of problem, then you need to get a technician to check that for you because you might need to buy a new motherboard for that.

Please do the above simple steps, and let me know if anything happens. I hope this can solve the issue.

WILL NOT POWER ON


Good day. Here are some tips on how to troubleshoot the problem:
1. Check for physical connection first. Check if the power cord doesn't have any physical defects.
2. Make sure the printer is plugged in to a known working
power outlet.
3. Unplug the power supply from the printer(it's the black box
where the power cord is plugged in behind the printer). It may be
hard but it can be removed. Leave the power cord plugged in it and
the other end to the power outlet in the wall. Check the LED around the silver contacts of the power supply. It should be on and green. If that's on, power supply is ok.
4. Plug back the power supply in the printer. Make sure it's
plugged in the right position. It may seem to be plugged in already
but the position is incorrect. Double-check.
5. If you have double-checked already that the power supply is
plugged in correctly 100%, then it should power on.
6. If not, try pressing the power button of the printer.
Hope one these steps fixes the problem. Good luck!

Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue:

1. Reseat the power cord and verify a good power source.

To reseat the power cord, follow the steps below:

1.1 Power down the system.
1.2 Unplug the power cord.
1.3 Wait approximately one minute.
1.4 Reseat the power cord.
1.5 Verify that the power cord is plugged directly into a known good power outlet.

2. Verify that the monitor is receiving power from a known good outlet and bypass any power strips.

To test the power outlet, perform the following steps:

2.1 Unplug the monitor power cable from the power outlet.
2.2 Plug in a different device, and verify that the device is operational.
2.3 If there is no power try another outlet. Remove any power strips and try plugging directly into the main power outlet.

3. Verify the monitor is powered on and the power button is engaged.

Ensure that the monitor is powered on and that the power button is fully engaged. To do so, check the power LED on the front of the monitor; it should be lit.

NOTE: There are two types of power switches:
A mechanical switch characterized by a long travel. You have to push it further and you will hear an audible click.
An electrical switch that has a short travel and almost no click.

A lit monitor LED can be any of the following:

* Green
* Blinking green
* Yellow
* Blinking yellow
* A combination, such as alternating green and yellow

Any of these states indicate the monitor is receiving power and that you should proceed.

4. Swap power cables.

To try a known good power cable on the monitor, follow the instructions below:

4.1 Turn off a working monitor.
4.2 Unplug the cable from the back of the working monitor, and unplug the cable from the wall.
4.3 Unplug the cable from the monitor in question.
4.4 Plug in the cable that came from the working monitor.

5. Run the monitor self test.

To run the monitor self test, perform the following steps:

5.1 Power off both the computer and the monitor.
5.2 Unplug the video cable from the computer or video card.
5.3 Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
5.4 Power on the monitor.

NOTE: The monitor self test will move around on some monitor models. If the monitor self test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check for the problem described.

If the Self test failed, it's possible that the monitor is faulty. Contact dell to check if it's still under warranty so they can replace it.

Have you had any major power outages in the days leading up to this issue? It could be a power source, cable or outlet. Try different outlets if you can and see the tv responds.

Facing No lights at all on router.


How long ago was it purchased? No lights at all would certainly seem to be a power cord issue. There's a possibility there may have been a surge that fried out the router, or the power cord may not be putting out the correct (or any) voltage anymore, but to check that you'd need a voltmeter. Have you tried plugging it into a different outlet to see if that makes a difference?
