computer don't turn on

fixing a friends desktop. Built it for him, and I built the previous one for him.

This one i just built doesn't want to turn on. I believe the power supply is good according to the voltage, but I still want to scope it more. The puter will turn on when you "jump" the power supply motherboard connector (green/black) wire.

I'm going to see if it boots up with a display and go from there.

The motherboard "on" button for nerds, doesn't work either(asus board)



Anyone know why a computer will not boot up? Is it possible the user messes the computer up somehow? He lives in an apartment building, and I'm thinking he is getting surges in the power line. Or his AC wall unit isn't wired correctly.


btw, got this at microcenter, wondering what their warranty is on a board.

TDS no sleep


jumped power supply, and the LED RED light for the CPU comes on. This is an ASUS motherboard and intel chip. From what I've read, it is probably a bad motherboard.


very slim possibility voltage too high or some crap like that.


Computer ran fine for a year, and now doesn't work. To bad my buddy didn't leave it on during the power storm.


TDS go sleep.

put the jumper to reset the bios for like a minute, and the computer turns on.

I noticed the time and date changed in the bios, since I reset the bios. Thought maybe I'll leave it off for the entire night, and see if the time and date reset. So the computer wouldn't startup again. I decide to swap the battery on the motherboard with another one. The computer starts up and shuts down properly.
