    Ok I did some research and your MB might need to be replaced, but first check the psu to make sure it is installed correctly.

    It's hard to say with out seeing what you have, but what did it do before you opened the case? If it worked fine then the new Psu could be incompatible or "too much" for the MB to handle.

    Reply back and let me know what you have inside exactly.

    I will try my best to figure this one out for you.

Repair ashuttle 250 psu

If the "250" is referring to the PSU's wattage, I think we have found the problem. Please purchase a 500 watt or higher PSU with a 80 percent silver or higher rating and you will be back up and running, that is if the motherboard is indeed good.

Pc won't boot up

Given the age of your hardware, this is likely to be a power supply issue. Borrow or purchase a power supply with the same or greater wattage, (500W minimum reccommended, 650W minimum if you have a high level graphics card) taking note of the Rail specifications on the side. You will need to also ensure that the rails provide the same amount or higher Amperes to the components to ensure you are not going to be under-powering the machine.

You will also need to take note of the connectors used in your machine and ensure the replacement PSU has the same connectors. The 24+8 pin is fairly standard today.

Hi again.... u just wrote me an answer for my power supply surges problems "Hi i just bought an asus m4a88td-m i instaled it with a amd phenom II x4, 500 watts corsair power supply, ati radeon hd...

Ive been playing around with pcs for 20 years. Im not a professional in the field, BUT.. Just booting up, a 250 watt will do it. Now, if you are playing a power hungry game you would expect it to fail then. I think maybe the PSU you have has a problem. So, you should return it and probably upgrade while you are at it. So, same answer.. NEW PSU. And... You do not want to run a system underpowered for any extended time. You can stress any number of components.

My computer is not turning on at all no light are power shown in da back?

The most common cause of this is a bad power supply. If you have access to a different psu try it to see if your system boots. If it does then you know you'll need to replace the psu on your computer. Make sure when purchasing a new power supply that you get one that will be capable of running all the hardware you are using. If you have a GTX 200 series video card you'll need a psu rated at minimum 550 watts. Hope this helps.

3d graphic card

It should support any AGP video card, you will need a minimum
Video: 128MB 3D DirectX 9.0c-compatible video card
To play that game there are alot of choices and all mostly a matter of opinion.

Barebones troubleshooting

Lex -

I would first check your ram, make sure its the right type and rating for the motherboard. Although most systems will beep at post for a memory issue, sometimes reseating the memory alone can clear up a startup hang.

If the memory is seated okay, the right type and speed rating, try using a different video card in the system. Its possible that the system is starting up normally, but not being displayed.

If neither of those help, minimize the system. Plug in just the bare minimum needed for operation - Power supply, processor, heat sink & fan, a single memory stick, a single hard drive, video card(if its not integrated on the motherboard). Plug in a monitor and the power cord, then see if the system boots.

If all that still fails, verify that the CPU fan AND the Power Supply fan are spinning when power is on. If so, this points to either a bad memory stick(try another), bad processor(if available, try one at a slower or faster speed), or bad motherboard.

Hope this helps!
