    sorry, don't rate this

    I will make a list of what you should do

  • Enrique Barrios Jul 15, 2008

    1- Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.( i'm assuming this is a desktop pc)

    Disconnect the Monitor from graphics Adapter.

    2- open the case ( touch the chasis for a while to disipate any electrostatic charge in your body)

    3- disconnect every devices except the motherboard from the Power Supply( colored wires - red, yellow, 2 black, pulling the connector form de device end.( Memorize their places)

    Make sure the Power button is properly connected to the power pin headers on the board( use the motherboard manual if possible)

    Take the cards( if any) in the slots out( be carefully, try to keep your fingers far from the electronic parts ( read about ESD)).

    don't touch the RAM.

    4- connect the power cord to ac outlet.

    5- turn on the pc

    Do the Cpu and Power supply fans works ( or at least the power supply fan) ?

    if the answer is no, try to test the power supply with another motherboard. and you will see which one is defective.

    If the answer is yes:

    - Turn the pc off.

    - Insert one card( if any).

    - Turn the pc on, works ? no ( the card is defective).

    - turn the pc off.

    do the same with other cards one by one.

    - Connect the hard drive.

    - Turn the pc on, works ? no ( hard drive defective) yes ( turn the pc off)

    - Connect the CD drive

    - Turn the pc on, (and repit the steps adding devices in that way till you find the defective one) Always turn the pc off before connecting anything.

    Maybe i'm forgeting something, if you have any question i'll be glad to help.

    Good luck

My computer was downloading windows updates overnight and froze. Tried turning it off from the power button, but did not work so I unplugged the computer. Few hours later I plugged the computer back in and...

You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

Computer doesn't reboot after turning off.

You could have a power supply problem. Start up is ******* a ps until it is fully up an running. You may have bulged caps in the power so that takes awhile to full charge up. I would start there. No other reason for it to do that because it runs fine after it gets started.

I have a Vostro 1700 laptop. Normally i would press the start button the laptop to start up the computer, but recently, when i put the power switch on on my plug socket on the wall the computer just starts...

- buttons, especially the power button could be grounded. This needs replacement and repair. You will need to contact the manufacturer for support if warranty is still active. A technician needs to be there to replace some parts

- The reason why the computer went straight to diagnostic mode is because the power button could be grounded since it's turning on automatically when plugged and when the power was disconnected the system shuts down unexpectedly. Turning on a computer that experienced unexpected power loss may result to running in diagnostic mode

- You might as well check the battery.

Logitech Z-5300 Turns off and on by itself

Im not sure if this will help u but check ur Remote's power botton.
Maybe its stuck?
It happened to me before... Was wondering y it turns itself on/off and found out later that the power botton on remote is stuck.
U should hear the clicking sound everytime u turn it on or off.
Otherwise... something else is wrong with the power switch on ur remote.

Computer turning of

It sounds like the power supply is going bad. If you decide to replace it get the same or higher watts. You can get power supplies pretty cheap, but cheap isnt always good.

Randomly turning off. Now won't turn on at all!

no check your power first to make sure you are getting power. check cooling fan to see if it is coming on.............dont waste money at the start. remember the length of time computer was running before shutting off....check for shorter time lengths........i think this is a good place to start.....

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer

Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

If so, you should get your power supply checked.
