Problems Turning on my Computer

Recommended Posts

WJKK WJKF

K, I have this problem with a computer. I press the button to turn on the computer, but there is no beep, like only the fans are running, but nothing shows up on the screen. Does anyone know whats wrong with it? I thought it was maybe the computer screen wires are loose, but thats not the case. As well, sometimes you have to keep on pushing the button to hear the computer running. It's really weird. Any suggestions as to what is wrong with it, or how to fix it? grin.gif Well, I'll appreciate any help that comes my way!

Thanks

Does the computer boot up? with information coming up on screen?

If not

The theres too possibile reasons

1) Software.......Virus (probably boot sector one).

2) Hardware.....could be your Power Supply Unit (PSU) is busted.

Best to get ti checked by a specialist if you still having problems.

Penji, firstly u wana look at what lights you are getting on the front of the desktop (tower)...

it looks like you are getting power into the pc, so PSU MAY be ok,

The lights you wana look at the front of the desktop is if the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) activity LED light is flashing.

If your pc sounds like it is booting up, u need to see if you have an Onboards graphics card, if so, your mortherboard is battered. If your graphics card is seperate, then could be that.

Are you from UK? if so, did u get ya pc from either, PC World, Dixons or Currys,.

give a shout back sis

No, I'm not from England, I'm from Canada, got it from Future Shop. So, when I press the button in the front, there is no light, but when I took the cover off, and looked inside the computer there was a yellow light that was blinking. I called up places last night, all of them said the same thing, it could be my power supply, motherboard, or memory. So, I guess I can't fix that on my own, so I have to give it in :doh: . Thanks for all the replies. If anyone knows how to fix it manually, maybe you can explain to me step by step blush.gif .

Try This (Mite not even be worth it,) but take out all the wires out of the back of the machine, includin Power Cable, Monitor wire, Mouse keyboard printer etc.. Everything...

Then When everythins disconnected, keep ya finger pressed on the Power ON button (that u noramlly press to switch the mahine on) - keep it pressed for about 20 seconds., this is to drain any stats if they r built up on the motherboard).

Let Go

Now only put in the Power Cable and monitor, see if that works, if it starts beeping, then also put in the Keyboard + Mouse.

If it didnt work, then u can kick me for wastin ur time..

the beep is mainly assosiated with the ram. if it beeps then it means ur memory is working fine. but if it doesn't then try to take out the memory card(s) gently (ram) and put them in their place again in the same way. hope it works.

good luck

Aaaww I can't believe ppl still reply back to this topic. But yah, I did that, that was like the first things I did, but thats not the problem. I took into a technican and got his suggesstion and he said it was the motherboard and processor. It is not responding. So, does anyone have suggestions what motherboard I should choose, or processor. Im thinking of sticking with a P4. But, I have no idea about motherboards. Thanks again to everyone who replied blush.gif .
