You may have received a power spike (if you are not protected)
Spikes can Blow the poly fuse in the PSU, and if not protected they can seriously damage your system,  to reset the fuse the system needs to be unplugged from the power for a few minuites.

If this does not resolve the issue check your cables for any irregularities.   If still having problems you may have incurred some damage which will require further testing to resolve.. I am happy to give further support on this is the first part of this resolution does not fix.

I have an Accer Aspire x3400 and after several turn on's and forced shut downs the computer will finally boot. I most cases when the switch is pressed the light flickers but does not stay on. Fan


Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm Testing & replacing the PC's power supply http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbNxhvm0czs One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du0Qd_3wFWM There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Computer is not booting up. Usual blue light over power switch is red.


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 have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

I turn on the computer and it does not load or nothing. the only thing that lights up is the hard drive light and it stays on.


Hi,
I don't know how computer technical you are, but it sounds like you know a thing or two about them. So here's the best way to find the problem:
There could be many things that could stop the board from fully booting, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is open up the case and take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd, harddrive or otherwise) the CPU, a graphics card (only if required) and one bank of memory. (which is not required, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. If your going to load a ide drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it, meaning the drive (IDE or EIDE) your putting on the board is set to Master, or Cable Select if your using the cable placement method.
Now, turn it on, and you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan going. If they start, then make the next step to have the single drive be your hard drive, and see if it boots. If it boots, then great, open Bios and make sure Bios is reading the board and all things are fine with it. If so, what ever you put on next make sure it one at a time so you can identify what it doesn't like.
In the situation where the CPU or power supply don't power up, it's then either one of the first elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card (if required) or the motherboard.
The next step is to replace each one of the first five, starting with the Ram Chip, put another like chip in and see the results. Then do the same thing to each of the remaining 4 components, the graphics card (if required), then the drive(cd, harddrive or otherwise), on to the CPU, and last the power supply. Hopefully something will show it's ugly way to make a change. Also, on the drive (IDE, EIDE or SATA) , try a different cable to make sure it's not that, Most people say that they don't have additional components to do this with. I understand, but if you replaced something like a new hard drive, then you probably still have the old one. In most cases you might have a friend (Geek) that might have some spare components. If not, then you may have to make an investment at the local try's or computer store. Keep the reciept so once you find out what it is, you can return the rest of the stuff you don't need.
Now If no changes happen after all that, then I take it one step futher and usually get a like (doesn't have to be exactly the same, just capatible with the components so they can be tested on) motherboard that I can test the first four, and make sure that they really work. If after that and you have tested all of the components and they all work, then it's save to say you have a bad motherboard my friend. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
?
Good Luck

Hard drive goes on blue light go around once pc


Tried to boot the computer in bios. Check if the harddrive is detected in bios. If not detected. Shut down the system,take out the power cable.open the tower and disconnected the hdd IDE cable and connect it to a differnet IDE port. Restart the system and boot in bios check if hdd detected. If still not detected possible issue with hdd. Try connecting on different computer if still issue persist replace Harddrive.

Motherboard problem


Hi Conor, every SATA drive is a master drive. With that in mind you're SATA must have windows installed on it. Please disconnect the data cable & power cable's from the IDE drives.
(Do not reconnect either IDE untill you have finished).
Install windows on the SATA drive. Install all the needed drivers, than update windows. When finished Check the pin setting on the IDE drives. Set one as the "master with a slave" & the other as the slave. Than you can add both into the system. If you had windows on one of the IDE's just delete the root files on that drive so it does not conflict with the new windows on the SATA drive. Go in the bios make sure you have the SATA drive as the boot drive & not either of the IDE drives. If the system still shuts down after all this, try replacing the data cable for the IDE drives (Both should be on the same data cable). Swap the power connector from the CD-ROM drive to the IDE.
Next, if you're system still shuts down after adding either of the IDE drives, than swap the ports. Connect the CD-ROM to the primary IDE port on the board & the IDE hard drive to the IDE slave port. (This is for testing only). Double check all power connections from the power supply to the motherboard. Leave the case opened. Look at the board when booted. Watch for the the case LED's lighting up & flashing cr-rom's LED flashes, look at the CPU fan. Make sure all fan's are running & listen for the drives running.
Let me know if anything changed or not. Post any thing odd or if any thing did or didn't work & I'll go from there. Everything is a test & error soulation. One change at a time.

Problem with boot


is your jumper setting in your cd drive correct? during boot up, does your computer detects your cd rom drives? cd rom drives must be in slave. Check also your ide cable, be sure its not connected reverse.

I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU


I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.
