amd xp 1700(palomino) on a ga-7vt600, winxp sp2

i upgraded video/ram in my computer and now i can't even get the old(what was replaced) stuff to work. here's a few things to list:

install new vid card, update drivers/settings, reboot no picture to monitor.
unistall/reinstall card, boot and monitor has picture.
install another gig of ram, boot no picture.
take new ram out, boot no picture.
take new card out, put new card in, boot no picture.
take new card out, put old card in, boot no picture.
take all memory out, try known good stick in all slots, boot and no picture.
put all back in, boot, no picture.
turn power on and watch the led fans run on my 15lb paper weight.

it's a never ending combination that i've tried here and i cannot get a picture on this monitor. i've swapped monitors around and all are good, i've put components from this computer into another computer and they all worked. something is not letting this thing boot up, i get no picture to the screen and no beeps sounds or anything else, i turn the computer on and you hear the fans, hard drives, and burners powering up and everything, but there is no picture going to the monitor. it sounded like bad memory because i ran into a case of that before but all the components still work when placed into the other computer. my last guess is the board has gone sour. i was reading other posts and people have mentioned the power supply, but where do i check that at? it's a codegen 350w ...

My Yoga S1 has contradictory, intermittent power issues that I'm trying to chase down. Culprits are bad power bric/cord/plug or power socket on mother board or power board that feeds into power button/led on. One day it blacked out and wouldn't restart to hard drive or windows stage. I did get an error code which I can't remember 5100 or 5500 poss?, that seemed to indicate the power board or ribbons to that needed replacement or re-attachment. So fiddled with it and it did fire up in windows all ok. Then ran out of power and died again. power button wouldn't light up. plugging in power unit did light up led as getting charge. Left it overnight and then it miraculously charged up. pushed power button light up twice then nothing. took out power board/detached ribbon, then it fired up to windows, fixed some hd errors and has been restarting without problems. Except now there is no plug showing on battery icon when plugged in. So not recharging but I'm sure the battery is good. And logically, the power brick and plug must be feeding electricity into laptop to get it to recharge enough to start up. So power socket and plug may be suspect with intermittent contact problems. Or the power board somehow is involved in this? I've ordered a new powerboard as easy screw in and cheap. My question about powerboard is does this control ability of plug to charge battery? power brick with new plug is next order from ebay. but the power socket, which see...

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

Older Dell Optiplex GX260 tower model. Okay first I extra a harddrive from an HP older system that had just recently crashed. Now I want to read that drive right? I put it in as a 2nd drive in my Dell Optiplex system, set the jumper to cable selected, go into BIOS and select my 1st drive to show it as AUTO. I hit Save changes, upon rebooting it, it gets to the end of logo display and freezes. Weird, never saw that before, I think crap maybe the IDE cable is set wrong or something. I remove the cable and molex plugs from both HDD's after the power is off and set it back to the way it was.

When I reboot I get to the end of the logo again and it freezes and I can't even get into BIOS. Very strange. Well I go back again to check my work and see it is fine with how the IDE cable is sitting and the Molex plug. Now the system won't even power on. The light to the MOBO is on but the system won't start. I undo the front panel and work to see if the cable is worn but it is not and it appears to be fine. The light to the signal will not work to go green at all.

What do you think could be most common issue of this and why? I don't have a multimeter to test the system with and I don't know if it's more than a passing problem. I have never encountered anything like this were a system worked fine then you attempted to just read a 2nd HDD and it started to cascade a bunch of problems to the system.

Any help or ideas are much appreciated, thanks.

I just bought a Soltek SL-k8av2-rl Rev:LB for my brand new AMD Athlon 64 +3000 Socket 754. I am using a NVIDEA FX 5200 128mg video card that was working on my previous board moments before install on this board. I am also putting it in my case that I have been using with a ANTEC SP350 power supply. (the previous setup was a 2.4ghz setup so I am sure it is enough power)
The problem is that when I turn it on everything seems to get power...the fans start and the hard drive light stays on but no video, no post and NO BEEPS.
The most baffling part is that I am not using the power button..It is doing this when the switch on the back of the power supply is flipped. The power button for the case is not working at all...on or off. I know that it is good because as I said it was working only moments before the transition.
I know this has got to be something simple that I am just missing but I am completely baffled.

can anyone tell where the problem , in PSU or motherboard or the HSF or any other place so i change it .

please help me guys....

A:cpu would not switch on, but board gets power.

You need to post your system component specs. Motherboard; EXACT make, model and revision (if applicable). Processor; EXACT make, model and stepping. Memory; EXACT make and model. Graphics Card (if installed); EXACT make and model. Power Supply; EXACT make and model. Provide links to the components.

No one can possibly diagnose a problem without knowing the EXACT components you used in the build.

If the machine is a mass produced machine such as Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. post the EXACT make and model.

Hi everyone!

First I want to thank you for the great job you do in this forum!​ ​ I have a PackardBell Vesuvio laptop. I had problems with the previous motherboard (it couldn't power on) so I bought a used board in eBay.​
But this one has a strange problem; it can't power up if the power cable is plugged in (with battery inserted)! If I remove the power cable, it can boot up and works fine. After powering on successfully, I can insert the power cable and battery begin to charge without any problem. The power supply is ok (it outputs 19V, as it should). Is it possible that something inside the laptop is being shorted out when I plug the power, preventing the laptop to boot up?

I don't know if the used motherboard I bought was faulty or something else is happening. All other components seem to work fine.

I'd be grateful if you have any ideas about this problem!​

A:Board doesn't power on

I don't work much with laptops, but power related issues are generally a motherboard function. If a laptop boots with/without a battery, or with/without AC connected, it typically implies a motherboard malfunction.

Hopefully someone with more experience can confirm.

Does anyone know of a source for parts?

If you are good with a soldering iron go to radio shack and get replacement components. Call the manufacturer again and ask them to sell you just the part as long as you know what it is. Most of them will be glad to send you one or point you to a depot center where u can buy one.

I have been using HP Pavillion DV6220TX since 2007.

The problem is that I have to move the power adapter pin in various direction applying pressure in different angles until the blue ring lights up

Since 2007 I have already changed the power connector board twice. I have bought the board off ebay and changed it myself. The problem has re-surfaced once again.

Does anyone know if I can use any other type of power adapter board? I think the design of the recommended board (431446-001) is flawed and gets damaged very quickly.

I have an Alienware Sentia M3450 and for a while now I have been having problems getting it to charge. It seems as though there are problems with the power circuit board and/or DC jack because the computer does not know when it is plugged in; the battery icon in the taskbar always shows that it is plugged in and because if that I cannot tell when the plug has wiggled loose and so if I am using the laptop for any prolonged time and the plug does wiggle loose (it does not take much for this to happen) and I don't realize it, I don't receive any low battery warnings or anything; the only way I know the plug has come out in this case is when the computer completely dies and shuts off. Does anyone know why this might be happening? If it helps, the area of the computer where the DC jack is located often becomes extremely hot-- to the point where I can't even touch it.

Hi folks,
Not sure if this is the right place but thought I'd ask...

Anyone know whether I can buy a replacement from anywhere )and don't suggest Archos, please).

I have a fairly old monitor (NEC MultiSync 75) that always works with video cards but never works properly when I have it on-board.

The screen resolution is set at 640x480 and the color quality is set at 16 bit, and I cannot change these options. In the device manager, I don't even have a monitor tab, however I do have 2 sub-tabs under Other Devices titled SM Bus Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compatible).

The screen is fine and so is the monitor itself, but I'm thinking that there's an issue with the drivers. When I downloaded the drivers for it, there was no .exe file. Instead, I unzipped an ICC Profile, a Security Catalog, and a Security Information file.

Does anybody know if I can just put these files into the registry somehow and my system will automatically update them and fix my screen resolution?

Hi. I have a Sceptre S1902D-RV X9G-Gamer monitor. I am having the problem where, when powering the monitor on, it will turn on for a split second (and look fine) and then turn itself back off. Apparently this is because the inverter board is faulty, and replacing this board should fix the monitor.

I am having a hard time determining exactly which board is used in the X9G-Gamer, and also can't figure out where on earth I would go shopping for a replacement.

It seems like replacing one little board would be cheaper than trashing the whole monitor and buying a new one, and it'd also be kind of fun for me to crack this open and see if I can fix it ... but if it's going to be so much trouble to figure out, or just as expensive either way, I guess I should just get a new monitor.

Looking forward to your comments and suggestions.

here lately my power supply fan has been making a lot of noise. I actually took it out and appart the other day and blew all the dust out of and put it back in my computer. It seemed to work fine and I no longer had to smack it to make it quit whinning. Well about a week later I woke up and the computer wouldnt wake up from sleep mode. I finally had to power down and attempted a reboot, but nothing happened. The computer went to the blue HP screen and then a black screen with a cursor flashing. Thats all I've been able to get ever since. Actually sometimes it doenst even go to the blue HP screen and just straight to the black screen with a curser. I noticed also that the fan on the power supply no longer runs at all. It seems that the power supply is bad. Do you think if i replace the power supply it will fix the problem? Could the power supply malfunction messed up my mother board? The current power supply is a 200w which amazed me. I actualy did attempt to use a old 150w power supply to only run my HD and grapics card for a lower power boot, but I had the same outcome. Someone please help. Thanks.

Hi All,
I have a HP Pavilion 7950 desktop PC running WinXP Pro.
After the computer sat unused (and plug into the electrical outlet) for a few months. The PC will not turn on. (It worked fine before it sat) The status lite on the back of the case at the power supply is illuminated green. There is no boot up, no bios, splash screen, nothing.
Here's what I have done;
Tried different electrical wall outlets
Different (but confirmed) power cord
Visual inspection inside the case ie. wiring, swollen capacitors etc.
Swapped out the ram
Unplugged each drive one at a time, then undid all at once
Unplugged fan at processor chip
Held power button for ten seconds or more
Checked cable connections at power button.
Checked cable connections at the mother board
Here's something that did happen. After I discovered the PC wouldn't start, I moved the PC to my basement workshop and it sat unplugged for a few weeks. I started to work on the PC I plugged it in to the power, and it started to boot up, fans were turning etc.. I did not have a monitor plugged in, so I turned off the PC to connect the Monitor and after words, the PC would not power on again. I unplugged the monitor (to make sure it was a video or cable thing and the PC still would not start.
How can I tell the difference if it a Mother Board problem or a Power Supply issue? I don't have a spare power supply close enough in similarities to swap out.
Thanks in advance,

Hi techies,

My dell inspiron 4000 laptop is not powering up. When I plug in the power supply to the wall outlet the battery lights up but as soon as I plug it into the laptop the light on the battery goes out. The part on the laptop where the battery is plugged in also smells burnt when I plug it back out.

Is this a battery problem or is it as I feared, the power section on the board is fried? Do I have to get a new laptop or can that part of the board be replaced?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

searched already for an answer but could find a specify yes or no... cheers guys

A:Power supply and mother board compatibility

Most likely no. There are some older Dell systems that had a proprietary power supply where the pins were switched around so that only a Dell PSU could be used.

As far as pure wattage goes, have no fear. 1000w power supplies are just as safe if not safer than that 200w in the current system.

Really, if your planning on investing in such a nice graphics card, you might as well put just a little more into the PSU as well, maybe a 450w or 500w.

So i had my pc tech stick my mini ITX board into a new case and all is working good, but i notes he turned off a setting in the bios he told bios to not halt on errors, i went and turned it on and i see the reason he did is due to the power sensor not being there anymore, as it had a power board in it that distributed power to the system, and i can see on the mini itx board were it would have been. so i called him up and he said it wont hurt anything he set it like that so it would not be annoying to me, that the board is fine and working correct it just had a sensor that is not there anymore. so should i leave the halt on all errors off, or turn it back on and just hit the F1 key to bypass it. does it hurt anything to have it off he says it does not, and mine was a special case as there was nothing we could do about it. as the sensor was on the dead power board and dell wanted way to much money for it so i just gutted the x51 and the machine has been working great, and runs even better.

A:so i gutted my alienware x51 as the power board died had ?

I always use "Halt on all errors" because I want to know in advance of OS loading if something is amiss, but it really has nothing to do with reliability and speed of going thru POST or loading OS and it's further operation. If everything is working right it all comes down to personal preference.

Any suggestions are appreciated. 1. Power Button: I've noticed that when my screen goes to sleep I've had to push the power button in order for it to 'wake up'. This has not only been slightly irritating but also very slow. I've noticed that it takes a really long time for it to wake up. I was wondering if there was a way for this to be turned off? This way if I open my laptop it goes to the lock screen or if it falls asleep while open I can press a key instead of having to wait for the button to work. I've also noticed it turns the keyboard light on before the screen. not sure if this happens to anyone else too? 2. Key Board: I'm in college so writing papers and forums is an everyday thing for me. Something that has been happening recently is when I'm in the middle of typing, all of a sudden a 'ping' noise sounds and my keyboard stops typing. At first, i thought maybe it was my palm touching the touchpad causing the courser to move to a different area of the screen so I turned the sensitivity down. But this still happens, at times I'm not even touching the pad and the noise sounds and not only am I no longer typing but the course is somewhere different, at ti... Read more
