Preferred Solution: Replacement components for a computer that does not POST

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Take it to a respected computer repair shop, and find out exactly which component is failing. It might cost you $60 -$90, but will save you money in the long run.

I bought a win xp disc and installed it. After that, the videocard has been replaced and 1 cd-rewriter was removed.

It may be possible that in a while, CPU, motherboard and RAM need to be replaced, or maybe the PSU only.

-if only the PSU needs to be replaced, can I still use win xp?
-if CPU, motherboard and RAM need to be replaced, I have to reinstall win xp, can I still use the same win xp key with the disc I bought?

Yes you can reuse the purchased copy of XP. You will probably be required to call MS to activate it again. That's a very painless and simple process that takes less than 10 min.

Hi even No components?

Then when it eventually did all the repeated reboots had corrupted the windows install Long story short too late my ram was cooked and I couldn t get a stable system So it was all looking long in the tooth anyway and I decided to update things New mobo new cpu and new ram and even a new hdd just for luck Installed it all booted up and nothing No POST but all the fans came on and all the leds on the mobo lit up telling me it was ok Lies I ve tried swapping out all the components PSU mobo graphics card ram and cpu with no joy I ve just rebuilt the pc out of the case to check for shorts same thing One interesting symptom which probably tells someone with more experience than I what s going on when I first press the power button everything spins up then dies within about seconds Then silence for seconds or so Then it turns itself back on and tries to boot all without outside interference Sure it means something but I ve no idea what and it s such a vague description google isn t much help The system as it stands upstairs is abit IB motherboard Intel Core Duoe E ghz Corsair DDR gb kit Sparkle GeForce Gs and the alternate which has no impact on the problem is a Connect D X XT The PSU I was using was an Enermax Noisetaker To test things out I nipped to PC World and spent quid on a quot Jeantech quot pos Neither of which seem to do anything different It s the way changing the components is having no effect on the symptoms which is confusing me There s now nothing in the PC which was there before I started playing even tried new power lead and different outlet If anyone knows what s going on you can be my new best friend The more I need to work from home the more I need my PC and so this problem is crippling I m almost at the point where I pick up the phone and call Dell so I must be getting desperate Thanks for taking the time to have a shufties Si nbsp

I'm jst in the process of upgrading my editing system and after changing two components;
ATI x1550(old) to nVidia GF8500 GT 512mb(new)
Intel Core Duo 1.83Ghz(old) to Intel Core Quad Duo 2.40Ghz(new)

Since doing so the system turns on and on the first screen states the Main Processor (which is correct) but then doesn't continue on to the memory tests... The USB keyboard (setup to work in BIOS previously) doesn't work with the system any more, and the PS/2 adapter doesnt help... There are no beeps.

I was wondering how hot some components should be at maximum temp for regular computer use without causing damage. I installed a new computer case, one that reduces sound, but the ventilation is definitely not the greatest there is. Anyway, I left my computer running idle for about 7 hours and my processors(2) were about 50c and my motherboard temp was at about 53c. I ran a program called Sandra Lite to get the temps, it's says the motherboard shouldn't go above 50c. I need to know if these are too high of temps for this components, or is it acceptable.

A:Computer components crashing

What diagnostics did you run? With your limited information sounds like you've got a bad power supply or (less likely) bad motherboard. Is your sound onboard or a PCI card? Are these externally powered speakers or are you driving them directly from your sound card or a port on your comp (some older HPs had an amp in the computer for speakers).

A:Computer components compatibility help?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

When thinking about building your own PC the fist thing you need to decide is 'What is the PC for'? Is it for gaming, internet only, office work, heavy graphics design work etc. I would assume you are not looking at a gaming PC based on your choice of GPU.

Decide what CPU you want and then get a motherboard that supports it, Asus and Gigabyte are good makes.

When you have the found a motherboard, look at that board manufacturers website for tested RAM on the memory support list. Other RAM may well work, but for assured compatibility its good to go with that recommended by the motherboard manufacturer. You have gone for the slowest RAM that board supports (1333), I would look at getting 1600MHz RAM personally. The Memory Support List can be found here.

Power Supply: I use this site : as a guide for buying a power supply and what I need. Always buy a good quality unit, never go cheap here. Corsair, Seasonic, OCZ, PC Power and Cooling are good makes to name a few, you have chosen a decent one above. I generally look at the wattage it recommends then go up a little from there, this helps ensure the PSU doesn't get pushed to hard and will prolong its life. Working the PSU to about 80% of its rated capacity is a good guide.

Overall, looks like a pertty solid build, only real recommendation from me, personally, would be to boost the RAM speed.

Does the Auto set it at 1.5v? Go ahead and manually set your RAM to 1.5v because too often Auto doesn't necessarily set the voltage at the designed voltage specs for the memory.

Also, what is the make and wattage of your PSU?

I have the PSU plugged in and on, I hear it buzzing a little and right when I hit the power button on the tower, lights flash and the CPU spins for a split second then there's no signs of power and if I hit the power again nothing happens. I got a new video card, new PSU and a new motherboard. I've tested the video card and PSU on another computer and they work. I installed all of this on my old motherboard, the same problem happened so I thought maybe my motherboard was fried so I bought a new one. The same problem persists. I also used another CPU and still the same problem happens. I don't know what else it could be, any help would be VERY appreciated.

PSU: Lepa N500-SA
CPU: FX-6000 Series
Motherboard: msi 970A-G43 Plus
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950

A:Computer components get very warm/hot even under no load

Is it possible that you have your fans drawing air out of the case & insufficient air can get into the case to replace that air. Normally the PSU fan takes air out of the case, so just check that your other fan is blowing air into the case. This should give a good air flow through the case.

I plan on starting to sell computers, but I want to ensure that the system is running optimally and unproblematic before I ship it accross the country. Problematic computers may cause even more problems when shipped back due to improper re-packing, which would be incredible costs to take care of. I want to use every ounce of prevention possible.

I've heard of some stress-testing programs that make the computer run all processes at nearly 100% for hours to see how the computer does. I also plan on using memtest86 in my tests.

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to go about this and any programs they'd recommend.

Thank you!

A:Testing and Stressing Computer Components

well, for the memory it's got to be memtest86

For the CPU, simply a number crunching program such as Seti or the climate change experiment will do.

Or you could even simply use PCmark.

Any idea about my Question.

What is the function or purpose of Thermal Heat Sensor?

A:will these components be good for a gaming-ish computer ?

Those should be fine for gaming. However, for your CPU I would change to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane. That CPU is faster dispite the slower clock speed. Not to mention it overclocks better and and runs cooler. And if possible upgrade to the eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB.

Another note: Don't use the power supply that comes with that case, buy one seperate.

This is just meant as a healthy discussion among us members of sevenforums Lately and not only here I've seen hundreds of people who showcase their selected parts list for their shiny new computer they will be proudly building as soon as they get the money to buy all those new glistening parts However and this is mostly a pet peeve of mine It upsets me when builders opt in for an incredibly high performance processor video card ram are Which components build? a often in new overlooked computer SDD HDD Fans and water cooling from the most recognized brands and they select a John Doe power supply claiming to Which components are often overlooked in a new computer build? deliver watts and amps in Which components are often overlooked in a new computer build? the v rails Think of it this way what is the point of having such fancy accessories when your engine will not be able to power all of them properly Or even worse damage them beyond repair Same with motherboards They select the cheapest one they can find to save money but people are saving money in parts they should invest the most in Again what is the point of having all that power if your chassis is weak Too much power and you might break it and end there crying with pieces all around you It seems to me that individuals nowadays take light importance of components that do not seem as interesting because they are the ''computery parts'' they don't really understand the function of So tell me Sevenforums what pc components to you often see overlooked in new builds and what do you think could be the reason

A:Which components are often overlooked in a new computer build?

As soon as I saw the post title I thought PSU! You covered that too and I agree they do cheap-out for the heart of the machine that makes it all work and wonder why they have a black screen with a cursor.
The second thing is not getting a quality CPU cooler to help keep that 4.9GHz overclock cool and stable.

Hello strinh808 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see anything in te log but this is a rootkit which can hide itself. It also steals passwords so at this point I would not use this machine for any secure computing that requires passwords (on-line accounts of any kind).Let's try a different scanner and see what we find. Download WinPFind3u.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:Restart the computer.As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.Press the Enter key.Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.Let it run unhindered until it finishes.When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here. I will review it when it comes in. If, after posting, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too big to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into multiple posts.Cheers.OT

OK I got a new Lenovo Yoga 900 80MK0010US model. They replaced it and the replacement has issues so they are willing to replace with model 80UE003AUS.

Since I'm not a tech person and this was just a gift from someone who bought me the laptop.
I am told replacement is better than what I have.

Here is differences that I see on spec sheets:
Processor from I7-6500U (2C, 2.5/3.1GHz, 4MB, 1600 MHz) To I7-6560U (2C, 2.2/3.2GHz, 4MB, 1866MHZ)

Storage from 512GB SATA SSD To 512GB PCIe SSD.

Nothing else different.

While my sons do gaming, we just use windows based products and quickbooks. Im sure its fine just want to make sure it is better


A:Replacement Computer

It does appear the new notebook is nicer - at least on paper. The normal CPU speed is a bit slower, but when tasked, it will boost to a higher "turbo" speed - though .1GHz is not likely to be noticeable. The RAM is faster though not sure that will be noticeable either. Generally more RAM gives a bigger bang than faster RAM. PCIe SSDs do tend to offer faster performance than SATA SSDs. But SATA SSDs are already extremely fast - especially compared to even the fastest hard drives. So again, not sure you would notice the differences. Altogether, however, on some tasks, there may be a noticeable performance gain. But still, whoever told you the replacement is better was telling the truth.

hi all ,

i have a desktop

i changed my broken case to a new case like

i removed the HDD and the motherboard and the CD-rom ..etc and installed them to a new case

but when i press the switch button it works normally , and the screen display normally and there are no beeps , but after like 20 second my computer turns off automatically ! ,

what may cause this issue ?

A:i replaced all of my computer components from my broken case to other case

could be overheating CPU. Did you apply fresh Thermal paste to the HSF after reinstalling the motherboard? Is it tight and secure? Did you blow out all the dirt, dust and debris from the fans' fins?

First of all, have you read the guide at the top of the forum for problem builds? If you follow ALL steps of the guide, you will find the cause of your problem.

Next I assume you did not just install the mb without checking that each standoff was in the correct position. One incorrect standoff and the board will short when you press the pw ON button.

Oh those Best Buy geeks...
My parent's pc died on them and they took it to get serviced...3 weeks later, it came back with a new power supply, but the computer is awfully, awfully slow (it takes 10 minutes from.startup to load internet explorer). Factory reset has done nothing...did they touch something they shouldn't have?

A:Computer slow after power supply replacement...

You would have to ask them for a list of that which they did.

What brand, model, model # PC, or same information for the motherboard?

Computer specs would be helpful.

Which ;power supply was it: brand, model, model #, wattage? Same for now?

If you aren't happy, take it back & have them install a new power supply and politely insist that they demonstrate it to you before you accept it back.

Start the computer, note time from start to desktop appearance or log in screen appearance.

Start the computer in safe mode & do the same.

To start in safe mode, start > run
type: msconfig
boot.ini tab
put a check in "safe book"
exit without restarting
Shut down.
Turn on.

so my issue is that when i turn on my computer after it's been off for a while it will not POST it will just spin up the power supply fan and the CPU fan and i'm fairly certain the hard drive too. but if i leave it on like this for a while and force turn it off then back on it will POST and boot normally. it has to be left on in that strange state for like 30 mins b4 it will boot normally and it's been doing this since i bought it in 2008. It's not a problem for me but since i'm gona need to sell it when i go to college i want to get it working

I've checked all external cables but figured it would be a waste of time to re-seat the RAM or CPU since it isn't even posting

Western digital 80gig hard drive

I think its the motherboard being a bastard to me. Has anyone got any ideas?

Ive checked the cpu, memory and hard drive on my current system and they are working perfectly. i dont have a agp slot on my current system so i cant check the graphics card.

help anyone

A:Computer will not POST ( Help )

Good that you kept saying "help" otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to reply at all..

Fist thing to do it trying to boot the bare minimum system: CPU, memory, video - nothing else connected. Triple check that all components are seated in properly.

Clear your CMOS setup in case you messed something up in there.

Since it somewhat worked before then it means you have probably dislodged something, misconfigured something or broke some component while troubleshooting (you are not putting the rig together on a nylon carpet, are you? )

When you get the POST picture back and it still crashes: test that memory stick with a memory test pogram, make sure your CPU is not overheating and that you get enough power from the PSU.

If either stick of RAM will work in one slot but neither RAM stick will work in the other, I would be inclined to say that the slot in the motherboard is bad. A second opinion is always a good idea though. Can you see any bent or damaged connectors in the RAM slot?

This has been going on for quite a while. Problem started with getting BSOD several seconds after bootup. Booted to safe mode, and tried to use Restore. Got message that there are no restore points set? Tried to use Repair to no avail. Booted original Windows disc and tried repair from there to no avail. The tried Imaging which ran for several hours, and then message that Imagining Failed. Then No Post. After reading numerous messages on-line, decided to RMA the MB and the PSU. Installed these items, and still no post. HDD led flashes off and on. Ancillary fans run. CPU fan starts, does a few revs, and stops. Beginning to suspect the CPU? Maybe someone has some ideas? This computer ran outstanding for a couple years before the trouble.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I agree, it looks like a dead mobo to me. Just to make sure your cpu is ok, I recommend taking the cpu to your local pc repair shop. Have them test it for you, it`ll only cost a few dollars to get this done.

This is the most vexing hardware problem I have seen in years I have a DFI CS -ES Socket motherboard and a PIII GHz socket processor When I plug in the power and flick the switch red LEDs on the motherboard will glow but the computer won t beep or display anything on the won't Computer POST screen I have tried the following Replace the CPU with an identical twin Replace the motherboard with a DFI CW -D Replace the RAM Replace the PSU None of these things have resulted in a booting computer The place I got the mobo from assures me that it was tested before it was sent out and the same with the CPU I have no guarantee that either Computer won't POST RAM chip is good but they both worked a few months ago in the PC I stole them from and then junked I have no manual for either board and it s possible that the CPU isn t compatible but would this result in a no-POST scenario Googling has come up with inconclusive results when I bought this CPU I remember seeing it on a compatibility list somewhere but darned if I can find that list again Any help is appreciated Nathan nbsp

A:Computer won't POST

Wrong processor. Those boards take the earlier FCPGA socket 370 cpu's and you have an FCPGA2 cpu. They go up to 1.0 ghz and are a different cpu.

My problem:

Computer won't Post. Blank screen when all components are pugged in. Changed video cards. Still the same problem.

My specs:

Motherboard: ECS P4VXASD2 (no onboard video)
CPU: 1.8 GHz Pentium 4
CD-ROM: 40x
Video Card: 64MB AGP card and a PCI 32 MB card (for testing purposes)
Mid tower with a 250-watt power supply.
Okay, when I install all the components and turn on the computer, I get a blank screen. I then take out the video card and RAM and unplug the drives. I turn it on. No post (no beeping). The CPU fan runs. Here's the motherboard's website: Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The nightmare continues After months I finally figured out that the source of my crashing was a counterfeit AMD So I mailed it back to the What POST. be Computer even might the cause? won't vendor and two weeks later today I received a brand new authentic in return months ago after disaster I bought a brand new MB power supply cpu ram and video card essentially everything but the case Over the past two weks while I was w o a processor Computer won't even POST. What might be the cause? I tried dropping in my old heat-damaged Athlon but the computer didn t even post I just assumed the old processor had finally gone dead But today my brand new just arrived I dropped it in all copper heatsink and it too doesn t even post I m getting power fans and drives spin up but again the computer doesn t even post I tried clearing the CMOS and no hardware other than the cpu has changed since I pulled the old cpu out two weeks ago everything was working then The only thing I can think of that would prevent the computer from even posting is a bad MoBo but it is brand new and worked just fine two weeks ago Any ideas suspiciou nbsp

My wife's computer will not post. When the power button is pressed, the fans start, the DVD drive light comes on, but the monitor shows no signal, and the HD light does not come on, and there are no beeps.

The system is:
AMD 2000+XP
Gigabyte GA-7VT600-L
8X DVD RW+/-
ATI Radeon 7000

I have switched the video card and the memory between hers and mine, and same problem in hers, and no problem with mine. I have also reset the CMOS and replaced the battery. I doubt it's a HD problem because it does not post anything. I can test the CPU and the PSU, but have not because it's such a pain. However, the PSU was purchased a few months ago, and the CPU over 5 years ago, so I am thinking the CPU or MB.
Any thoughts?

A:Computer will not post...

Are there any alarms sounding when It tries to post? I'm thinking possible the ram went bad considering it is much less fault tolerant.

I have installed a new MOBO a (A7V333-x) With a AMD 1700.
I also included a amd G Force 2 Video card. I watched the person that I purchased if from test the unit. I then came home and installed the MOBO and it will not post.. So i check all the normal things.. The thing that is getting me is that if I take the MOBO out of the ATX case and set it on top of the case and hit the power...the computer will post....

I am really confused....

A:Getting the Computer to POST

Sounds like it's shorting some where on the motherboard tray check that all the stand offs match the mounting holes on the motherboard, if they do match however, then try fiber washers on all the mounting screws, sometimes the heads of the screws get to close to the board traces.

A:Computer will not POST

Disconnect everything from the board except power and the monitor and remove all add-in cards. If it still does not POST, you have narrowed it to main board, processor, memory and power supply. I doubt you have an extra processor to test it with; but, you could take the power supply to a local shop and have it tested. They will probably do it for free on the prospect of selling a replacement.

hmm.....could be a power supply issue. how much power are you running on your computer? have you tried using a different power supply? if not and if you dont have a spare power supply, i recommend you going to your local computer store and purchase an antec power supply.

The last couple days I am having trouble turning on my computer. I unplug it and replug it and I also flip the switch on and off on my power strip. Eventually it will come on. But today I just can't get it to come on. Everything else lights up. Please help me get this computer on. Thanks.

A:Computer will not POST

Is your power strip working? Try plugging the computer directly into a wall outlet.

It sounds like it could be a power supply problem. What are your system specs? (graphics card, motherboard, CPU)

If you aren't sure, download CPU-Z. Run it, then go into the folder where you downloaded it, and open the file "cpuz.htm." Press ctrl+a, press ctrl+c, then go start-->run, type in "notepad", press ctrl+v, save the file to wherever you want, and attach it into this thread.

Hey gang, I am not sure where to put this posting. We are going to get a new desktop computer but I need some help. I know I shouldn't be asking "what system should I get?" but it has been a long time since I bought a new computer (had jobs that supplied them). What do I need to look for? Top brand? Top features? I suspect I can only get Windows Vista but I want to also have word and excel, how do I make sure I get the best value for office as well? Thanks for any suggestions.
