We have a Acer ax1920 desktop the power went out due to a snow storm and now it will power on but won't do anything we tried pulling ram out, any help would be great thx and also you can see fan spinning...


makes sure dust free from your power supply. but does sound like you going to have to buy a new power supply., not really any way to test power supply, you may only have enough power to spin the fun on the cpu, turn on some light but not enough to start up the computer system or even boot up. amazon.com you buy one 18.00 to 25.00 look for deals of the day where shipping free. have in a few days

HP Pavillion a1514n Won't Turn On


Yes even with the green light on it could still be the power supply. Have you pulled the power, opened the case, and pulled the BOIS battery? Could be the BOIS needs to be reset. You might also pull all the memory chips, turn it on and see if you get a beep code. I have had that happen in the past. Then I would replace the power supply (if you have an old one laying around use it to test, with just the MOBO plugged in). If the power supply fails, that leaves only the mother board as the issue.

Good luck, I hope one of these suggestions works for you.

Blew a breaker and now my computor won.t turn on


Try this, unplug the computer, hold in the power button for 30 seconds or so (this will discharge the capasitors). Now plug the computer back in and try to turn it on. If you still get nothing, try a different surge suppessor. If you still get nothing, try a different outlet. If all of this fails, you most likely have a bad power supply. You will have to open the computer, uplug the power supply from the motherboard, hard drives, DVD drives, ect. Play close attention to what plug goes were. Remove the screws holding the power supply in, and remove it from the computer. You can take this old power supply to about any computer store and find a replacement. Put in the new power supply, plug everything back in. Hopefully the computer will now boot up and run. If not you could have a bad motherboard.

I hope this helps

My Gateway DX 4300-05 won't start. Not even the power supply. Does the motherboard have a reset?


If I am reading the frist part of your stament correctly, the power supply does not even kick on when you press the power button. Don not unplug anything from the inside of the computer at this time, instead check your power cord and make sure it is plugged in thightly to both the computer and power strip. Check to make sure the power strip is on, plug something else (like a light) and test the power strip. If the item does not come on, then you may have a bad power strip. To confirm plug the item you are testing with into the outlet the power strip is plugged in to and see if it works. If not your outlet may be bad, contact an electrician. If everything works, but the power supply is still not kicking on, you possibly have a bad power supply. You will need to pick up a replacement power supply and install it in the computer. This is were you unplug everything wire bundle that comes from the power supply to the mother board (paying attention to what was plugged in where). Take the new power supply, install it, plug everything back in. Now try the power button. If this fails then yes you have a bad mother board.

I know most computer retailers that offer repairs, have a device to check the power supply. A good repair place will check this at little or no cost to you, if you agree to let them install the replacement if it is bad (they will charge you for the power supply and installation of it).

I hope this helps

My computer went blank when turning it on


1) Computer isn't working, due to the Processor isn't working, due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power perhaps to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer Power Supply's are rated in Wattage.
Volts times Amperes = Watts.
(Average computer power supply in a fairly new computer, is rated at around 300 Watts)

A) ALL of the LED lights combined, use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor may use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can have enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

Solution?
Test the voltages of the Power Supply,

Or, use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, that has the correct amount of power cables, the right kind of power cables, the correct size, and shape of the case, and enough Wattage, for a test unit..

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure.

Deep freeze computer inresponsive


it sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.

that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.

make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died

Unable to reboot


Sounds to me like you have a bad or dying power supply. Try finding a friend with a working power supply and hook it up to your computer, if the problem ceases, then go get yourself a new power supply. If the problem persists, it may be an issue with cables or the fuse, maybe even a bad motherboard.

No power


Had the same problem after the electric went out due to a storm. When the electric came back on the computer wouldn't turn on. There was a light flashing on the Power Supply and on the mother board. I disconnected the large white Power connector from the motherboard, waited 15 seconds and plugged the connector back in, the light came on solid, press the on/off switch and the computer booted up and continued to work fine.

How old is your computer? Did you recently have a power outage or anything? Most the time if a computer won't turn on, something in it went bad OR an outlet is bad. Try this:

1. Make sure that the power switch is on, the switch in the back (on the power supply itself) is turned on, and everything along those lines is functioning.
2. If that doesn't work, and it will not power on AT ALL, make sure the cords are plugged firmly in place, including the surge protector and/or the power cord itself.
3. Try resetting the surge suppressor and/or plug the computer into a different outlet in the surge suppressor. Try other items in that surge suppressor (or even in the wall outlet, if that's what you're plugged into) to make sure that the outlet itself is working.
4. If your computer is plugged directly into a working wall or surge suppressor outlet, try a different power cord.
5. If your surge suppressor works, your wall outlet has power to it, and you are using a known-good power cord in the computer, you will have to go into more in-depth investigation as something inside the computer likely went bad. It could be the video card, motherboard, CPU fan, power button, or the power supply itself. Start by testing the video card and the power supply by (one at a time) swapping out a known-good component for the one you suspect may be bad. If it won't turn on after that, try swapping out the next and try it again. If it still will not work, it could be something more serious such as the motherboard or power button.

Good luck!

it could be a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. Other problems might cause issues, such as a bad video card.
