Pc not on

The computer was working fine till suddenly it powered off abruptly.. I don't know how it got powered off. But after that my machine does not POST. I see nothing appearing on the screen. Keyboard, mouse nothing is detected. Also there are no beep sounds. But guess i never heard the BIOS beeps when the PC worked fine.

The CD drive opens up if i only connect the power supply to it without any connection of MB to it. The fans are running and also the green light on the MB is on. But other than there is no activity.

I opened up my CPU and removed the processor FAN. Removed the grease from teh interface between the processor and the processor fan. Hope that is not a problem.. :(

I have searched the MB for any damaged/bulging capacitors ... have not found anything yet. :)

I have also tried removing the CMOS battery and booting. But no help.
Also i have tried to boot the PC with BIOS safe mode. Still no help. :(

I would really appreciate getting some help regarding some solutions to this problem. I have searched the net extensively but have not come up with worth while solutions till now.

    Every Intel board starts with the letter D. Look at this link:

    Ther are a couple things you can try. If possible please swap out you're power supply. (A must try).

    Opening the CD-ROM & the fans running use a small amount of voltage. You're power supply could be defective. PC systems can shut down if there is an overheat issue (Mostly from CPU overheat). The system will do that so you're CPU does not fry. If you are using two DIMMs remove one, the farthest from the CPU & try powering up the PC. Still nothing. Remove the other DIMM & replace it with the first DIMM you took out. Still nothng? Try another power supply as I mentioned above.

    Don't forget to add thermal grease when putting you're CPU back together!

    CMS, I can not send you to Intel for a bios upgrade or to flash you're current bios without the correct Intel motherboard model number. Please click on the link I posted above & look very closly on you're board for the correct Intel model number. If you have you're manual, the model number will be listed there.

Power supply not coming to mother board. how can i find weather its will work or not? how can i troubleshoot ? hoping the detailed information regarding this.....

If your computer does absolutely nothing when you power it up - the fans don't turn on, no lights turn on and the the monitor screen stays dark, some component inside your personal computer has failed. Unfortunately, there are no visible fuses that you can replace. There's a good chance the power supply has failed however you need a PC power supply tester to test it. However, there are other components in your computer which could have failed and cause the computer to do nothing when you power it up. If you have the required tools, test equipment and understand how these components work you can test them and determined which component has failed. Otherwise, you need to have a computer technician determine what your problem is.
I'm sorry that I can't help you more, but repairing computers is similar to repairing automobiles . If my car will "turn over" when I turn the key on but will not start, I could replace the fuel filter, fuel pump, coil, ignition computer etc. until I found the problem, but I don't have the parts/tools, I don't know how to test automotive problems and I don't want to waste money and possibly cause more damage by just guessing. I take the car to my mechanic for repair.

Replace your power supply unit with a better wattage rate. BSOD is sometimes cause by an intermittent power supply.

Computer suddenly dies intermittently


In this case when it is always beeping during the computer is on. You need to check the memory stick if it is not faulty. Remove the memory stick and clean it from dust. Clean also the memory slot and reinsert the memory stick. If the problem still occur try to use the other memory slot.

Good luck!

Try to use working processor from your friend, If the problem still the same possible your motherboard has been damage. Ask for a warranty for the supplier.
