Hello, problem could be power supply. But in certain cases it could be other components as well. Can you give more detail regarding this problem, like for example if you hear beeps when you switch on PC or if power supply fan starts up for a second and stops again. Also check if RAM and VGA card are slotted correctly in the PCI connectors. Reseat again if necessary.

Powerup problems


you should not leave PC on for more than a couple days.

It may have gone into Hibernate and if there is a bad sector, (i.e. read errors,) when that is loaded into RAM, then that can cause many symptoms. Try to boot into Safe Mode, then if that works, Restart and use Normal mode.

My dell sx270 optiplex doesnt powerup somtimes after i unplug power supply


Chances are it's going to be slightly oxidized contacts on a supply part, but it's not broken, just intermittent. Some power supplies use relays to supply the voltage, and their contacts can get oxidized. The fix for this is to take it off it's mounting, open it up, and use paper or a very fine emery cloth to clean the contacts. You can also change the relay, if that doesn't work out. It's not something that will hurt your computer, just a nuisance.

My Dell Dimension E521 won't start up and has a flashing 3,4 code.


Can you check your bios page on startup? Do you see anything on the screen when you first powerup? If you see nothing and only get the flashing lights you may need a power supply.

You may also have a bad HD or perhaps loose memory chips.

You can start by checking the bios for an installed hard drive and memory. If you see those and then it stops booting. Check the power supply.

Push the switch/will not powerup


This is either a lose connection or a power supply problem. Look at the back of your computer where the cable that plugs into the wall is located. There SHOULD be a light on (even if the PC is off) if the power supply is working properly. If it is not on, it is defenatly the power supply.

Powerspec PC 7114, will not powerup by pressing the on button on front of unit?


Do you have a toggle switch on the power supply at the back of the unit? You may have inadvertently turned it off, try toggling it in the other direction.
If that does not work, you may have a dead powersupply or even a dead connection to your on/off button on thee front of the case.

I'm trying to reassemble my compaq presario 7598 after exchanging hard drives yet I can't get it work, system want powerup at all.


When you installed the ribbon cable to the hard drive, did you make sure that the ribbon cable and the side with the red line on the cable is connected to PIN1 on the hard drive and the motherboard. If it is connected wrong it can keep the computer from starting. Also, did you make sure that you have the cd-drive and hard drive on master and slave? If you need more help on this, let me know.
