Windows 7: My PC will not turn on Please help???

20 Mar 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Oh wait i found out ssomething!!!!!

When I press the power buttom the light in the back of the powerbox turns off like it always did, but nothing happens as usual.... but i held the button down to see if something would happen and the light back in the powerbox turned back on, I think that it could be the power buttom because when ever i turned on the pc the light in the back turns off, and once i turned it off the light goes back on, so I think it could be the power buttom thats not sending the pulse to the motherboard? could that be it???

You could try this .... but be careful

1st disconnect the power button (pwr sw)

then take an insulated screw driver and bridge the pw_on pins and see if it will power up (take the screw driver away if the fans start up)

Yeah, be very careful for numerous reasons. On my very first build I accidentally broke one of the power button pins off entirely. Didn't mess with solder til years later, heh.

Hey guys, i checked all the wires, took out all the componets and cleaned them, Now i realized that its a connection problem on the PC Main wires.

My PC is working now but I don't know for how long, since its a bad connection, I'll have to take time to get back to the pc and see which one is broken or faulty. Thank you guys again for your help. Much apreciated.
