  • kpredator Apr 06, 2011

    i have already changed the psu when i press the button to boot the computer up it comes on for a second then turns off

    hey @kpredator - I just got this same problem now - my pc started freezing and now won't start with same simptoms as yours. If I remove the CPU power (which is a separate cable with 4 wires) the fans will stay on but nothing shows up on the monitor.(obviously) Any idea how you fixed it? I removed the cdrom and hdd leads so i should be able to see the bios at least...but no luck

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Is it possible to upgrade the mother board in this computer?


Dell Cases are very often only for Dell boards--connectors not standard--It can be done,but a lot of trouble. If you want to really speed up look for good complete kit from tigerdirect.com--and put it together--Will work A LOT better than what you can buy at stores.

Go into control panel, then go to device manager and see Audio devices. Check to see if your Realtek is listed as your default audio device. If it isn't you have to add hardware and add the audio device using your setup disk that should of came with the computer. If the audio device is set up and working in device manager then check your cable from the mother board to the jack on the audio out that is mounted on the mother board. Finally if non of that works see if you can borrow a set of speakers to try to see if they work with your setup.

First time I heard that But Maybe your board needs a bios update which I personally wouldn't do unless you really know what your doing. I would buy better ram and more of it and just use the two slots that work.

Computer is not functioning


H!
Please check the lock of your processor. If it is tight or loose. If it is loose then it is the one causing the mother board no to function properly. You must tighten it to make it stable. After checking and it is not the reason for the malfunctioning of the system. Try to remove your CMOS battery and then clean, and remove also your memory card in the mother board and clean. Return it after cleaning and then close the CPU and turn it on. During the booting process strike the delete key to enter into bios set up. Adjust the time/ date settings to your current time. Press F10 then enter. wait for the CPU to process.

Please post any comment if it was solve so that I can give you more option if it does not solve your problem.

New Problem


The manual you need will be on the board manufacturers web page, howevr I will bet you have the case power switch and perhaps the reset switch on the wrong pins on the mother board. To check this, remove the switch leads from the mother board, then use a small screw driver and bridge the pins on the mother board a pair at a time. All of these leads plug on to the board in a line and not across the two lines of pins. when you get the mother board to fire up by this method geet a torch and look closely alongside the pins you will see the letters PWR SW or RS SW. It does not matter what polarity these two sets of leads are plugged onto both will work. The LED lights on the case front will only work if the polarity is correct but it will not do any harm if they are backwords. On the board you should se two sets of pins marked HDD and PWR these are the led light pins you will know you have them right when the usual red and green lights are working at the front of your tower.
