Help! Computer won't turn on! - Page 2

post #11 of 22
So you've tested it again after not starting?

The tester only costs about $25, so most places will do it for free if you take the PSU, just make sure to call up and check.

Tomorrow I am going to go around to look for a place that will diagnose my entire pc free. Seen a couple places already. I just hope whatever it is has warranty frown.gif

Missed your question, yes I did test it again after it failed this time. All I did was unplug the motherboard and pop in the paper clip and everything turns on fine (all 3 hard drives spin up, all 3 fans turn on, lights light up)

Those don't always present enough load to actually test anything. i've seen PSUs greenlit by the little atx testers that can't power up anything else. if it powers up stuff with a paperclip, it's probably OK.

I agree except where you said it's probably fine.

Paper lip it with hdd's and test all the voltages with a multimeter if you can.

It's funny how people overclock to 4.5+ but I can't even just go to 4.1 -_- I didn't even need it tongue.gif And it was stable too! It ran perfectly for days and I stress tested it as soon as I overclocked.

I'll take out the battery now and tonight at around 8 or 9 I'll check back. Good enough time? Is 1:31 EST here.

If you have a multimeter than it literally only takes like 2 minutes to test all of the major voltages.

I do I just have to look for it. Either way I am taking it to get looked at because I don't want to spend cash if it's not the problem or if there was a domino effect on other parts.

So nobody would diagnose it for free and I decided to take out the cpu and motherboard and I also replaced my PSU with my friends. PSU works fine, so I put my PSU back. After putting my computer back together it turned on again. Typing from it now. I need to know what utilities I can run to test everything possible and maybe look for a leak somewhere or something that may be off causing the problem I had before.
