Question about Shuttle XPC 250W Power Supply (CSSHMIS10) Power Supply

Shuttle XPC XB51G Barebones - no power

My computer was shut down unexpectedly and when I went to power back on the power switch does not work. I see no visible damage. I press the power switch or the reset switch and get nothing. Not sure if this is a power supply problem or switch problem or hopefully not a motherboard problem. Any ideas?

    Hi - I am using SN95G5 barebone ( with 50GB 10000 rpm primary hdd, 250 gb secondary hdd, ATIx 800pro graphic card). One day when I wanted to start my machine, press the power supply button and can see hdd led gets on and sounds comes like hummmmm!! Every this is getting powered up, even still. But no boot up nothing coming up on screen.

    Sounds like PSU problem. If that is the case then I need slientX 240W PSU. I am not sure from where I can opt from?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    Many many thanks in advance,

I think you will find your PSU has gone faulty, they are very cheap these days, I would guess at the PSU and replace it "On Spec" with a similar one. Remove the four PSU screws around by the Fan at back. Unplug it from The motherboard noting connections, can only go one way thogh. Take the PSU to ya local repair shop and get another... put new one in connect up to MB and power up. If ya lucky.. ya solved ya problem. Or better still see if you can test it with another one B4 buying another.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Windows keeps shutting down unexpectedly

Your computer is overheating, it is shutting itself down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Your computer should be serviced by a computer technician. He/she will clean the components and chassis of dust. This will increase airflow over the components, meaning your system will be stable and will not shut down unexpectedly.

Take care!

Stays on standby when switched on by remote lights flashing when remote is pressed .

Possible that this is a protection shut down that show up. The processor does not switch the main +B as there are errors in the main board. So remove power plug and look for possible visible damage on the board for leaked capacitors.
if so there is short on the board and so there is no feedback to the processor and so is shut down. use a multimeter to check for shorts in circuit.

I have a Vostro 1700 laptop. Normally i would press the start button the laptop to start up the computer, but recently, when i put the power switch on on my plug socket on the wall the computer just starts...

- buttons, especially the power button could be grounded. This needs replacement and repair. You will need to contact the manufacturer for support if warranty is still active. A technician needs to be there to replace some parts

- The reason why the computer went straight to diagnostic mode is because the power button could be grounded since it's turning on automatically when plugged and when the power was disconnected the system shuts down unexpectedly. Turning on a computer that experienced unexpected power loss may result to running in diagnostic mode

- You might as well check the battery.

Pressed hibernation key and now the computer won't work

Unplug the computer for a minute and plug it back in. It should restart normally.

Usually you restart just by tapping a key in sleep or hitting the power in hibernate.

Computer won't start

When the screen is black, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del; a soft reset should kick it back into gear. Did the laptop shut down unexpectedly due to power loss/overheating/etc..?
