one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

My Dell optiplex 790 desktop compuer doesnt boot, no beeps and key board isnt working.the power fan works and no light the mother board is on,what should i have to make my comp fixed?

Not sure about dell mobos.. Asus usually has some led indicating there is current running on the board even if it's off..
From my experience i can say if there is no beep that means the memory is defective, preventing the system to do P.O.S.T. (power on self test) which is where the beep comes from.

Being a Dell system i'd say you should go for it's help desk.
If that's not a option you can remove the memory and see if there is a beep, if not, the other part that can prevent the system to POST is the processor.. If you have another (working) system you should test both memory and processor there.

In display showing no signal where would be the problem or how to check and analyse the exact problem please tell me

Power off your computer and remove the smps 24 pin connector to the motherboard and short the green and black pin and see if the SMPS is working if not replace the smps.
Remove memory from the memory slot and switch on the computer if you hear beeps clean the memory or change it with new one that fixes the memory slot
If no beeps by removing the memory then remove the processor fan and clean it with soft cloth and apply thin layer of heat sink compound and switch on the computer
If you still not hear the beeps then change the processor
If still no beeps take the motherboard to a chip level Technion the secondary power supply or the clock,reset etc in the mother board has gone wrong or not producing them

How will you know if the processor is still working?

Finding Out the CPU condition whether its working or not
  • 1

    Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.

  • 2

    If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.

  • 3

    Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.

    RE ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard.. system will not power up.. processor heatsink fan does not power up ... but ... removing processor and pressing power switch fan does work.. what is the problem??

    Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

    [There are three main power rails in the SMPS for your desktop computer.
    A) The 3.3 Volt power rail
    B) The 5 Volt power rail
    C) The 12 Volt power rail ]

    1) ALL of the LED lights on at once use less than 1 Watt of power.

    2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

    3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
    Just depends on what Processor it.

    Remove the Processor, and you will have power to light LED lights, and spin fans.
    Of course without a Processor operating, you have No computer.

    Replace the Power Supply.

    Do you have a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply available to use for a test unit?

    Need guidance in replacing, or suggestions for Power Supply's to choose from, post In a Comment.

    The processor fan running no display and no sound beeping

    First check display (Monitor LCD, Cables ect) and make sure that they are working.
    Next check RAM and replace them if possible. Most of the times display issue with Asus is because of RAM.
    let me know the out come

    I have motherboad asus P5S800-VM and I get a beep when I turn and after about 5 seconds I get like 5 consecutive short beeps, can you help please. thanks

    I hate giving a bad diagnosis as I am afraid that you will not respond to the post well or give me a poor rating. But never the less, I will give you the information that you have requested.
    5 beeps whether you have an AMI or Phoenix BIOS means that there is a CPU error. That does not mean that the processor is dead, you may be able to reseat the processor in the socket and get the computer back up and running.
    I am just telling it like it is, 5 beeps means CPU error.
    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
    If I have helped you, please help me, and rate this suggestion.

    If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.
    Thanks for using FixYa

    P5S800 board wont post. I have tried with onboard VGA and with video card. It seems the pc wont go to POST. It just beeps continually. 1 long and 2 short. I have reseated the RAM and tried different RAM. I...

    That beep code is either a RAM or Video card issue depending on motherboard. It may be that when the fan went down it burnt out the video card slot & onboard video. Without physically seeing the board I couldn't tell for sure, but that is definately what the beep code is pointing to. Also make sure that when you are using a video card that you have the 6, or 8 pin power plug connected to it. As well as making sure both the main 20, or 20+4 psu plug and the 4, or 8 pin psu plug are connected to the mb. Hope this helps.

    Problem starting up my computer

    Is the PC Beeping at the end of the POST ( power on self test)
    It should beep just before the bios screen appears(this is the screen which lists all the installed cards etc in the system along with the hard drives and the various other parameters) if not, it is not completeing or even starting the POST.
    You may have a critical error so make sure ALL cards and RAM chips are fully and correctly installed.( touch a bare metal part of the chassis BEFORE touching anything inside the case)
    If you still have probs, did you touch a part of the bare metal chassis BEFORE you touched anything else?
    You may have spiked the board with static discharge.
