Computer is not turning on HELP! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
might also be a vrm failure
what board/cpu combo is it?

unplug the 4/8 12v pin connector on the board and see if it posts

edit: nevermind, athlon x2 should be around 65w and fine for the 3+1 board

Hmmmm. The PSU being a good three-four years old, I took it apart a good three four days ago. Wonder.. Would a PSU tester be a good tool to use? I also have a SUPER CHEAP 500w PSU. Could I use that strictly to test my computer?

That could happen if you broke wire so that it is shorting out. You said you had been doing cable management...
I would see nothing wrong with using that PSU to test it. If it really is low quaility I would not use the PC under load, but power up and idle should be fine


OH! and make sure the wall socket isn't tripped. I did that once...I messed with all sort of things for a couple hours and then noticed my monitor power light wasn't on...I was pissed.

If that 500W supply you have is known-good, you could use it to check and make sure it isn't the board. Even if you just plugged in the two motherboard power connectors, you should get lights on the board to verify it is getting power.

The power supply that I usually use to test computers is so thin I can bend it with my hand. Not of any quality at all.. Well, I let my comp sit for about 10 hours. Now it works.. Hmmm. Thanks for the help guys!
