Step 1: Make sure it's plugged in. (Don't laugh please, you'd be surprised).

Step 2: Make sure you turned it on. (Repeat of Step 1 comment goes here).

Step 3: Beg, borrow or buy a replacement power supply and test using it.

Step 4: Disconnect everything from the system board except the RAM, the CPU (and fan), the power supply and the video card. Test. If it works, add one thing back at a time until it stops found the problem.

Step 5: If disconnecting all but the core components still fails, remove the RAM, reinsert one at a time and test each independently.

Step 6: If that doesn't work, take it to a qualified technician as it's probably the mainboard, or CPU.

Processor fan noise problem

1. You can can change fan
2. Open CPU cover remove the fan and clean it and re install it
3. After cleaning put only a single drop of lubricant under the sticker of fan wehre bearing area.

remember do not start your cpu when you have taken off the fan. and if you are not a technical guy call service engineer to do this.

Alienware Area-51 Desktop won't boot up long beep

The fan to the left of your RAM slots needs to spin, it may be the reason for your problem. If this is the CPU fan then you may have a dead CPU.

Contact a computer technician for repair or claim warranty support.

Take care!

I have an Alienware desktop. Up until recently it was running semi smoothly (every couple of days I started it up it would just stay at the windows start up screen and not load). Other than that it was...

By the sounds of it, you are having an issue with the motherboard. I had a similar issue once and this helped:

-Unplug computer from power source
-Hold the power button for 60 seconds
-Open the case and remove the video card and RAM. Then remove the battery from the motherboard (the small disc type battery)
-Put the battery back in, and reseat the RAM and video card.
-Plug it in and start it up

If this doesn't help, you can also try replacing the battery on the motherboard. Of course, if/when you get to desktop, be sure to update all the important drivers (display, video, bios, etc).

My aurora which recently had its motherboard replaced has been shutting down seemingly at random. Sometimes when I'm watching hulu or playing a game.

It's probably heat-related -- start the Windows Task Manager, and minimize it, and then view HULU -- the CPU-meter probably will rise to 100% and stay there. The minimized Task Manager will be a small icon on the bottom-right of your monitor.

The "harder" the CPU works, the hotter it gets.

Be sure that the warm air leaving the back of your tower has some place to go -- don't back your tower directly into a wall, or put it tightly into a computer-desk.

If this does not work then change the Vga card
If that is not the problem then your mainboard is faulty
