Hi, from your description it appears your power supply is ok.

Remove your RAM chips, clean everything with a soft brush or a can of compressede air [from computer store] Reinstall the RAM making sure it is seated firmly.

If this does not solve the problem, Are you using 1 or 2 RAM sticks? if 2 then remove them again and swap them around.

stick one in dimm2 and stick 2 in dimm 1.

If you only have one stick then beg or borrow another stick and try it. If all fails you may have developed a mobo problem.

Hi
With that scenario i would recommend you check the front panel assembly where the power button is located and also have you tried to reset the CMOS from the motherboard.

Hello i need to know how to reconnect the computer case wires to a sr1703wm compaq motherboard


Hello.

The Compaq Presario SR1703WM desktop computer, uses an Asus A9AE-LE motherboard.
HP/Compaq's name is AmberineM - GL6E

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00496280&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1815742

1) I would like to start with the Front Panel wires.
The Front panel, is the plastic front on your computer tower, where the Power On button, Power On LED, and so on is located.

The Front Panel header is the connector on the motherboard, where the cables, (Wires), from the Front Panel connect to.

Looking at the HP Support link above, I would like you to scroll down the page to the illustration of the motherboard, and the photo of the motherboard under the illustration.

Looking at the illustration observe the bottom Right corner.
F_PANEL1 indicates the Front Panel header.

Note there are 4 pins going across the Top, and 5 pins going across the Bottom.

Looking inside your computer, the motherboard will be located in a different position, compared to the illustration.

The Front Panel header will be located Vertically, (Up, and down)

Note that there is a twisted pair of Black, and Red wires.
These wires form the Power On cable.
They come directly from the Power on switch.

There is a twisted pair of Yellow, and Black wires.
These wires form the Harddrive Activity LED light cable.
(HDD)
When the harddrive is active, this LED flashes.

There is a twisted pair of Green, and Black wires.
These wires form the Power On LED light cable.

The wires, (Cables), should be in one Black connector.

Looking at the Front Panel header in your computer, align the Black plastic connector's socket holes, with the pins sticking up out of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.

Note that the Front Panel header is rectangular in shape. There is 1 pin missing.
The Black connector coming from the Front Panel of the computer, has one socket hole blocked off, to match.

Align the four socket holes in the Black connector, to match the 4 pins sticking up out of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.

The other 5 socket holes in the Black connector, will match up to the 5 pins sticking up, automatically.

Use care, and you may need a bright light to assist.
These pins can be bent quite easily.
(Also watch your fingers, as the ends of the pins are S-H-A-R-P!)

2) Where it states CLRTC (CLPWD under it), is the Clear CMOS jumper.
Suggest you leave it alone.

3) Where it states F_ USB1, and F_USB2, is where the USB cables from the front of the computer connect to.

(The USB ports on the front of the computer's Front Panel.
F_USB1, and F_USB2 headers on the motherboard, are shown on the illustration to the Left, of the Front Panel header. F_PANEL1)

The plastic connector on a USB cable coming from the Front Panel, has an orientation just like the Front Panel header cable does.

There is 1 pin missing on the USB header on the motherboard.
There is a blocked socket hole in the USB cable's connector.
Align the connector to match the pins.

Doesn't matter which USB cable from the Front Panel, that you connect to the USB headers on the motherboard.
BIOS will find them, and assign an IRQ to each, once you turn the computer on.

All you will see at a first glance is a series of thick Gray insulated cables, coming from the Front Panel of your computer.

If you follow the cables by eye, you can see where the USB cables are connected to the back of the USB ports, on the Front Panel.

You may, or may not, have to remove the Front Panel to see more clearly.

Computer case open, look inside towards the Front Panel.
There is a Green plastic tab towards the Top.

This locking tab is depressed Towards the Inside of the computer, to START to unlock the Front Panel.

Towards the bottom in the same plane, is a Black locking tab. This tab is pulled Towards the Outside of the computer.
There is another Black plastic tab on the opposite side.

At the Bottom are two more Black plastic locking tabs. These are depressed down, towards the Bottom of the computer case.
One on one side, one on the opposite side.

Start by depressing the plastic Green tab, and gently easing the Top of the Front Panel, slightly out.
Then go to the two Black plastic locking tabs located towards the Middle, and depress them.

Ease the top of the Front Panel out a little more.
Finally go to the two Black plastic locking tabs located at the Bottom, and depress them.
Ease the Front Panel off.

(NOTE*
Your computer's Front Panel may not have locking tabs located at the bottom.
Just locking tabs located up from the bottom, more towards the middle)

It's no picnic for your first time, but once you have done it, it becomes easy. (Ummm, Easier!)

4) The Firewire (a1394) cable on the Front Panel, connects to the F_1394 header on the motherboard.
In the motherboard illustration the F_1394 header is located to the Left, of PCI2

Need any further cable connections, post in a Comment.

Emachines w3507 power


detarch all accessories or hardware connected to the system , then bring out the power pack itself out completely look for a soldering led to test the functionality of the power pack itself if it rotates the fan of its pack by looping the first hole to the third hole cable in the power pack connector that will head into the motherboard. therefore, check the mother board if there is any damage on it like some component if all this is false . then plug the power pack to the outlet and fix the connector of the power pack to the motherboard after detaching both cd drive , floopy disk drive leaving the hard disk and the memory . then change the memory card and press on the system there should be a solution from all this . the problem should be from the Memory not to be able to start up the system but go through those process i have given you before concluding it was the memory ok....


kindly rate this solution......

No video \green led near keyboard, hdd drive light indicator and wireless lights turn on. green power indicator on ad adapter, tried two different batteries. cpu fan not spinning...this thing will boot...


You can try doing these:

Clearing the CMOS, i.e. Unplug power cord and take out battery, then put them back in.

Cross check the components such as heatsink/fan, video card, and processor. It is never good to have a heatsink with the fan not spinning.

Check to see if the heatsink is cold, warm or hot. It shouldn't be cold OR hot.

Green light next to power button stays on - no response from computer, totally frozen for up to 12 hrs, then green light goes off, computer suddenly comes on for 5-10 min then freezes again.


Good day sir, hi, You need a thorough check on your PC.
But first try testing the Motherboard, Processor and Memory module.

As this point you need a friend, that knows how to tinker with your PC

Or you may need to do this.

1. memory testing:
Try replacing a new memory ram module on your PC, get the modules out of the memory slot, and let it be tested on another PC. if good,

2. power supply
Test for the power supply box, remove the 20/24 pin power connector from the mainboard and short the green and any black wire, your fan should blow out air.

3. Test for motherboard.
remove all coonections from the motherboard, except the 20/24 pin power connector, and the 12v 4-pin molex power connector, connect the pc speaker or the thumb speaker on the speaker port, connect a keyboard, clear the CMOS, (or remove the battery temporarily), connect the header panel (power switch, reset, power led) place the processor and memory (the tested good one). power on.


You should hear a beep (good) The keyboard will light up the three leds, then a few seconds, the numlock led.

If you hear 1 long and 2 or 3 short beeps, problem with the display section. Reseat any graphics card. test again.

If you hear continous beeps, reseat the memory, if the beeping persist, replace your motherboard.

If you hear nothing? only fan blowing, replace your motherboard.

I can only give you instructions, you need a someone who knows how to service a PC.
