Installed new Power supply, Monitor stays in standby...? So I noticed my fan was starting to go out, then it actually went out, my power supply would start to over heat and the cpu would shut itself down when it got too hot. Could this have damaged my motherboard or video card? I bought a new power supply and the monitor would just stay in standby. -I tried a better power supply and had the same result. -I tried a different monitor (both are pretty old) same result-standby. -I tried my older video card (which if I remeber correctly was working fine the last time I was using it I just upgraded) same result. Can old monitors be uncompatible with the newer Power supplys/mother boards/ video cards (all 3 Power supplys were ATX)? Could I have damaged somthing because I didn't replace it right away? I'm stupmed on this one any help/suggestions would be much appriciated.

    Thanks for the help guys



    Id have to get back to you about the exact specs(I'm at work and don't recall) It's not a dell though, hate em. I do know its AMD though. Video card uses VGA software..



    My cd/dvd/rw drives' lights turn on and they keep repeating the same blinking pattern as if they are trying to read a non existent cd/dvd. Correlates with repeating sound. The main power Led lights on the tower turn on. There is a small light on my mother board that Is yellow i believe. I don't think i would hear the windows start up until after I select my profile (that I cant see...) but i haven't tried to simply just press enter... The fans turn on.. except I haven't really checked the one on my video card. Not sure it normally would start at boot anyway.



    Castaroy I think your right. I guess that was my main question "Could I have damaged something because I didn't replace it right away?" It does seem like I fried my processor... Any recommendations?

    What model system? or model motherboard?
    What video card?

    Some older Dell systems had proprietary wired ATX power supplies that required a Dell PS or an adapter (Standard ATX would connect, just not work)

    When you power on with the new power supply, do you get any indication the computer is functional? Do you get normal lights/fans? If the speakers are connected, you you get the Windows startup sound? We need to determine if we have a no post or a no video situation here.

    Did you ensure the 4 pin 12 volt connection for the processor is connected to the mothertboard?

The failure is most likely the motherboard, the processor would be a 2nd point of failure, but generally processors failures are uncommon (I do admit AMD seems to have more processors fail than Intel) I'd replace the motherboard 1st, before buying a new processor.

Your problem is either the processor or the motherboard. that is why your monitor is not getting any signal. first try to replace the processor because I suspect that this might be the problem as it has gotten overheated before. if there was a power problem with you power supply you monitor would not power up at all.

Tv is stuck on standby. The standby light (red) is steady and when I press the STANDBY button, nothing happens. no response or flashing light.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Acer x193 monitor went into standby overnight. I have it set not to do this. Now, it has a hissing noise when turned on and it flickers and is dimmer, regardless of the settings.


Hello,

It's actually not in standby, the power supply on the unit has failed. This is a common issue with those monitors. The first thing to check is to see if it's still under warranty. Acer monitors have a 3 year parts & labor warranty from date of purchase. If you can't find your receipt check the label on the back of the unit for mfg date. If it's within 3 years then contact Acer corp. If your monitor is out of warranty then you can open it up to do the repairs. The usual problem with them is the capacitors on the power supply board overheat and bulge causing them to prematurely fail. You can replace the capacitors and the monitor will be just like new but with better parts in the power supply. That model normally uses the Darfon B092-*** 27-D021635 power supply board which is the same board that's in the Viewsonic VX1962 monitor. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you what goes out and how to replace the parts to get it back running again.

Have a Pavilion Desktop HP with upgrade from vista to windows 7 ultimate. Turned the power on and no blue light and no monitor yet the fans were running. Computer monitor said no input and went back to...


Power supplies tend to be either working or not working. I would start with the computers memory, reseating the memory cards (there are plenty of tutorials on the web for how to do this). If the power supply fan was running, chances are you did not need to buy a new one. Does it do the same thing with the new power supply?

Check output cables from your new power supply.
The connectors should be foolproof,but they might not be plugged in correctly.

Gateway 503gr has no power, the standby light flashes green when I remove power. Tried new PS and the standby LED stays lit. I then tried both new and old PS disconnected from board and shorted...


Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.

With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.

Plugged up came on about 20 minutes later shut down and went to a yellow blinking mode monitor stays yellow i unplug monitor from cpu and works good do you have any suggestions


Could be getting too hot. Make sure all fans, cooling fins, heat sinks, HDD vents and weep holes are unobstructed and clean. Many computers have a BIOS screen at startup that will display system temp. Start it up and enter the BIOS, check CPU temp. Most PC's will shutdowm or reboot if temp exceeds 140 (this can be adjusted).

If not overheating, could be fault in a memory module, HDD failure, or CPU itself. But that's not that common in the scenario you're talkin about

When is the Hipro HP-A2007AE power supply cooling fan to be on?


The fan should run constantly. It needs to be replaced. Otherwise the power supply will shut down when it gets hot. It can usually be replaced, but if the supply is cheap, just go out and get a new one.

Intel D865PERLL Motherboard will not power up


Hi nkda2000, this is as close as I could find for power schematics. Intel D865PERL
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865PERL/sb/CS-027143.htm

(There is no Intel D865PERLL board). Sure it's a typo. Have done searches for D865PERLL & found it (Not on Intle's web site) but when looking at the specs it's listed as D865PERL. (One L ) not two.

I hope the Technical Product Specification pdf can help you check the power on the motherboard.

Luck!

Monitor wont come out of standby


You got two outlooks, a fried motherboard or a fried component. If you have integrated graphics then its probably your motherboard, if you have your own, separate graphics card installed then it could have to do with your graphics card.

Google is your friend. It might not be damaged hardware, just some bug.
