No Power. New PSU and still NO Power

  Space Aware 20:12 21 Aug 2006

Hello. My imedia 5205 5 years old packed in last week. No power, nothing.
No fans start, no noises, dead!
Assumed it was the PSU, so I put a new one in just now, and still nothing, dead, no noises, no fans, no lights, DEAD!

Any ideas, Thanx!

Any ideas?
Thanx in advance :)

Just like mine a wee while ago...Dead mobo i guess.

Sorry,but im sure others will say,you will need specialist tools to find out if the mobo has died.Looks like you may be better to take to your local pc specalist or a local repair man.

good luck.

The motherboard just died? Oh dear, doesnt sound promising!

Sorry Space Aware but it sounds exactly the same as mine and i also replaced the psu first,i gave up in the end and am still looking around for a replacement desktop.
Also like my old faithful Emachine,it was 5 years due to die i guess.realistically,I would think its time for a replacement and enjoy the next 5 years with a new system :-)

Good luck.

Have you checked that there is power to and out of the new PSU?

  Space Aware 20:52 21 Aug 2006

Thanx skidzy!

to the PSU, yes. But how do I test out, without a multimeter?
Thanx in advance!

You need a PSU tester or a multimeter, but if power in is OK then power out should be as its new. I was just looking for the simple things that we sometimes miss.
Obvious next thing is to check the cable connections to the mobo.

Space Aware,

Check the fuse in the plug - if you can't test it, change it.
