PC will not power up, and power supply is working. The Mother board is in a HP Pavilion a1473W


A few things to check:
Firstly, scheck that there are no blown, or bulging capacitors on the motherboard, this board had a tendency to fail due to these going.
Then, remove all non-essential peripherals and leave only one ram module in the board, try to boot, if it does boot, replace all in turn, booting each time you do so and identify the faulty component.
If it will still not boot, listen for any beeps you may get.. note them down and if there are any, repost your query.
Things to try now:
Remove the cmos battery, leave out for 30 seconds and then replace, try to reboot.
Then try removing all the ram and rebooting with no ram to see if there are any beeps. If it does beep there is the chance that there is still life in the board, if not, the board is probably dead.

Finally, remove the board and power it up on an antistatic surface, using a temporary switch to trip the motherboard pw switch ( or use a screwdriver on the two terminals briefly). If it does power up now, check the switch from the case to the motherboard for breaks or damage, replace / repair and rebuild the tower

MY PC RESTARTS WHEN IT SHOWS BIOS,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,IT ALSO SPEEDS UP PROCESSOR FAN AND SHUTS DOWN


I'm by far no computer tech, but I'm not a newbie either. I had a similar problem a few years back with my GX280. In order to keep my 1yr old son out of my computer tower, I had hast-fully and unknowing incorrectly installed a new stick of ram. Installed the ram powered the machine back up, "OK son time for bed" By the time I got half way down the hallway I knew something was wrong. I have never smelled boiling or burning bleach before, but thats what grabbed my attention. Immediately I ran back to the computer and literally pulled the power cord from the wall, but it was already to late. The problem... That unknowingly, improperly installed stick of ram was not fully secured by the hold down clips and was slightly raised half in, half out of the slot. The ram stick was hotter than the surface of the sun, yet undamaged. My mother board wasn't so lucky. I powered the machine on again, it beeped at me 4 times 1 long tone 2 short tones and 1 long tone blank monitor and did nothing else. The beeps I thought probably the computer cursing me in its own dll language. I again pushed the power button to reboot. when the computer rebooted, again with the beeping accompanied by the cpu fan exponentially. I didn't and couldn't see the physical damage to the board until I removed the board from the tower itself. I noticed on the underside of the mother board I had burnt a blazing trail from the ram bus slot to the main power slot where the wire harness connects to the board from the power cube. This problem the cpu fan running away with itself can also happen when a component is improperly connected, or not connected at all. Check ALL your CONNECTIONS. If that doesn't work, you might have some sort of hardware problem.

Hope this works for you, or at least helps you out.

Good luck, have a great day, and remember computers are like vehicles you own one and eventually your gonna have a problem.

Computer powers on, no beep, monitor is blank


open the tower, on the mother board you will find the RAM card approx 6 inches long, take out the card and restart the comp, you should get the beeping sound and the mother board is fine, if no beep that indicates the motherboard has gone bad.
place the ram card properly into the same slot and then restart the computer. NOTE while putting your hand into the comp components always make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out or else you will get shock.
also check the cord at the back of the harddrive should be fixed properly. take it out and refix it at both ends . probable cause is there is some loose connection of the cord or the RAM.

Same problem, extremely annoying


Hi,
Go to Speakers properties > levels > mute pc beep.

That should stop the annoying power beep but not the startup jungle.
