My PC shows the BIOS screen and shows RAM memory but won't boot up any further. I get the BEEP and that is it. Grateful for any suggestions. I have unplugged USBs, removed and replaced RAM but no change. Thanks Item
Shows the BIOS energy saver screen, recognises the 512Mb of RAM but moves no further. No error messages shown. I have replaced the RAM but no change.
I have disconnected the CD and DVD drives and now have a dead machine. Power going in but nothing coming out of the Power Supply. Reconnected drives but still dead. It would appear that the power supply has failed but cannot see that this would have been the cause of the original problem.
A failing psu can cause a bewildering range of symptoms. It could easily get as far as recognising the ram and then fail to power up the hdd or cpu or some oter vital motherboard component. PSU is the quickest and easiest bit to replace, and that's really the only way of testing it. Borrow a known good one if you can before buying.
