1) Check to make sure THE receptacle in the surge protector that the computer is plugged into, is good.
I have had a few surge protectors where just THAT receptacle was bad.

("Hmmm, monitor, router, and printer has power from the surge protector." Checked the receptacle in the surge protector that the computer was plugged into, with a table lamp, found THAT receptacle was bad)

2) Receptacle in surge protector proves to be good?
Suggest performing the test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
(The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button)

The test involves bypassing the Power On switch, by using a jumper wire on the Soft Power On, in the ATX main power cable's connector.
Has nothing to physically do with the switch itself.

Using the jumper wire the computer (Power Supply) comes on?
Problem is the Power On switch.

[ Example of a generic ATX power on switch that I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html ]

Using the jumper wire the computer (Power Supply actually), does Not come on?
The problem is the Power Supply.
Replace.

(Green wire {PS_ON} is the Soft Power On wire. It is jumped to ANY Ground {Black} wire)

Want to know how to Properly perform the above test? Please post back in a Comment.
Also post the computer manufacturer's name, and the Model Number.
(On the back of a desktop computer next to the Windows Product Key, or up on the side of the tower)

I have HP Computer. Pulled out keyboard cable from tower When I put it back into my HP tower the keyboard wont work.


If you have an older computer, the connection could be ps/2. The current standard connector is usb which is hot pluggable. Older connectors are not hot pluggable which means they are only detected during the boot process. Not a problem, all you have to do is reboot the computer and the keyboard should work. Note: usb is rectangular, ps/2 is round.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Mouse works, keyboard won't..plugged in another mouse, it works,keyboard wont..how do I tell if it's the keyboard or the tower? Husband says its the tower.


try to plug the keyboard in another computer. If it is analog the lights dont come on the keyboard (caps lock, NUM lock, ect.) it is the tower if the lights do not turn on, it is the keyboard. If your keyboard is USB then try to use it on another computer if it doesnt work it is the keyboard, but if so I would make sure any software the keyboard came with is installed and try it agian.

Wont post led 3 flashes


if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?
