If no power indication either a fuse inside gone or a power supply problem inside and since schematics are nonexistent for these units either a shop repair or time for a new unit.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them

Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

Open it up again. Take the video card out. Take the Ram out. Unplug the hard drive. Unplug the other drives. Unplug the network card(s). And unplug anything else that is tied to the motherboard. Now plug it all back in snugly.Finally,turn it on. It should be fixed.

Our Wii was plugged in last night, this morning there is no power, we have unplugged everything and replugged back in, still no power. What do I do?

Hi there,
How long did you unplug the Wii from the power supply? As to reset the power adapter it needs to be unplugged from the power for a full 2 minutes before plugging it back in and trying to power up the Wii. (This resets the circuit breaker in the Wii power supply)
Cheers

Push the on button and nothing happens

I believe you are using a new power supply now.
Before you start, first check if your Power button is OK.

To do this, first unplug the power cord from your PC.

Remove POWER-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) from you Motherboard
Remove RESET-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) and put it on the place of POWER-Button. (polarity for these buttons is not important)
Plug the power cord back and press RESET.
Does it change things ?
If it starts, then your Power-Button is broken.

If not, remove the power cord and then put te POWER-Button and RESET-Button on their places on the Motherboard.

Now do the following:
(please remember the position and polarity of all cables/items you remove/unplug, Use Digital camera if necessary). Be patient, don't hurry!
- Unplug the power cord.
- Press power button few times (power cord is unplugged).
- Remove the Battery.
- Unplug the Monitor cable and remove VGA card.
- Remove RAM module(s).
- REMOVE any PCI cards(Modem. Lan, Audio etc.).
- Unplug any HDD/FDD/DVD cables from the Motherboard.
- Unplug Power from all your HDD/FDD/DVD devices.

Now:

- Put the batery back (be careful to the polarity)
- Put the Computer power cord
- Turn on your PC.

Is the Processor Cooler running ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If not, then your Motherboard is broken !

If there are some beeps, then your Motherboard is OK, but some component(s) is broken.
Turn Off your PC by pressing the Power button for about 4 sec.
Unplug the power cord and press Power button few times.
Put your VGA back, and connect the monitor cable, too.
Put back ONLY ONE memory module (if there are more).
Connect the Power cord and press Power button.

Do you have a picture now ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If you have a picture, put back all other memory modules and PCI cards, connect Data and Power cables to your HDD/FDD/DVD units, but ONE at TIME.
Do not connect and put everything back all at once!
After each change, see if there is a Pcture and (one) beep.
It needs some time but that's how you will detect which device/cable is maybe broken!
And remember:
Before you do any change, AALLWAYS do that with power cord unplugged and power button few times pressed !!!
If there are Beeps, try another memory module.

Again if there are still beeps, you have problem either with your RAM or VGA.
If there are infinite long beeps, than it is your RAM.
If there is one long and many (8) short beeps, then it is your VGA

Replace it!

Regards.
