Computer stopped turning on suddenly - Page 2

post #11 of 19
This is almost 100% guaranteed a problem with the power supply/circuit/adapter or some part of it, and not the motherboard.

I would suggest taking it out of the case and try running it with the bare minimum (no hdd, no graphic cards, only 1 ram dim)
Edit - Also see if the "click" sound is coming from the PSU.

Yeah, no fans or anything. Only the lights. I'll try that and others suggested.

Yeah, could be. Unfortunately that's the most complicated for me since these universal adapters that can take a 1000W power are not exactly easy to find (especially in Japan), so I can't test it in any way. Last time I went to all the local computer stores and they had nada, so I doubt they could test it either since they don't have the necessary tools to take care of a foreign computer.

Click sound comes exactly when I push the power button and when the memory LED blinks on. I think it's coming from the mobo.

I tried powering up without HDD and video card plugged and 1 memory out but no change.

That will show if it's a general / major PSU failure. smile.gif


Second: If the PSU does start clear your CMOS.


Third: . . . try the first two first. wink.gif

OK so as far as I know, I'm left with this.

Might be a stupid question but:

Do I really need to take the PSU out of the case to do this or is it OK if I just unplug everything it's connected to?

you can leave it in there.

Also, I thought that the power cords on tvs, monitors, and psus was standardized? (the 3 prong input end).

OK CONFIRMED: Click comes from PSU. I did jump starting, didn't start up, only click sound. So either it's broken or the adapter is broken (so it doesn't get power the way it's supposed to). Either way I'm in trouble since I can't get a new adapter fast to test it, and I don't really have friends who have extra PSUs just lying around.

Thanks for help everybody, I guess I'll start looking at online sites for a new adapter at first...

Is that with or without a load attached to the PSU? (Fans, HDD, etc)

If that is with a load connected when you tried to jump start it then it is dead (I have read of some PSU's not jump starting without a load). frown.gif

Did you try to jump start it with a paper clip?

How long are in you Japan for? Maybe an investment to get a new powersupply with a japanese powerchord?

I did without load, I unplugged everything. I thought that is the common way, since the guide had pics without anything attached. Should I try with stuff attached as well?

I did it with a paper clip, yes. And it clicked like before as I said, so there was contact.

I will be here for a long time, so not a bad idea, if I can just make sure it's not the adapter but the PSU.

EDIT: OK this might sound weird but it just started working suddenly. As I'm using an universal adapter the teeth or spikes or whatever you call them go in and out if you wanna switch for a different country setting. I put them in and back out, and now it works again. Damn weird, they were fully out before too so it couldn't have been that.

Thanks for everybody for contributing.
