PC won't boot

  Blanc Glacier 10:08 21 Nov 2005

Hi Guys,
I was wondering if you could help me. I went to turn on my PC last night and all i get is a green LED light on my tower, and nothing else, i.e. hard drive not booting / no display on monitor. I have onboard graphics...any help / suggestions?

If you can use another Monitor, then you may be able to track down the cause of the problem.

Any beeps from the PC when you switch on?

does cpu / chipset / gfx fans start ???

Hi, no beeps what so ever...but i dont understand because i get a green LED light..maybe the power supply?

Thanks for your help, im at uni at present but i will look as soon as i get home, however i dont hear anything at all from the PC so perhaps it could be the power supply.

No beeps isn't a good sign, power supply would be my first thought too.

Hi Guys, just to let you know i installed a new 230w power supply and it works a treat, so that was my problem. A quick question...i have a floppy drive, cd rw, dvd rw & 2 x hdd's all cables being used so hence no additional fan installed...would using a splitter to get one running be ok, being so i only have a 230 power supply.
