Computer Will Not Turn On?? Switched out Power Supply, Getting Green Light on Motherboard
Posted on 2009-05-19
i built this PC about 1 and half ago. here are the specs
Asus P5WDH Deluxe Motherboard
intel dual core processor
ATI x1650 PCI express video
6 GB of ddr2 6400 RAM
3 500GB Sata drives
and a SATA DVD burner
i have replaced the power supply on this computer 2 times before. yesterday the 3rd power supply went out. all i had was a new 400w to replace it with. i didnt think it was enough so i just hooked up the primary hard drive to get it back running.
well i replaced it this time and i get no response from the computer. all i get is the green light on the motherboard when i turn the power on.
here is what i have tried:
i have tried to hook the power button up every way i could. i have completely dissassembled the computer and put it back together. i have even tried removing everything from motherboard including processor hooked up power and power button and it still will do nothing but give me that green light.
i will say when i hooked up the new power supply i might or might not have smelled something burning. i couldnt tell if it was just the new power supply or a mild electrical burning.
also i have this computer behind a APC 1500 backup/surge.
i have even tried plugging directly to a different socket that i know is working and still nothing.
any ideas? is it another bad power supply, not enough power, or motherboard?????
