Hello,

There must be some cable which is loose and not properly connected. Make sure that the switch on the power supply is on too.

Hello,

Yes, please try that. There could also be a possibility that your power supply is faulty?

It could be damaged. Maybe your 2nd computer is running at a higher frequency than the power supply has.

Hello,

I'm running our of ideas here. There could be a possibility that you have accidentally damaged any of the ports on the motherboard. Does the power supply still work on the other computer?

yeah power supply still works. you can see the green light on the motherboard that lights up when the power supply is switched on. would replacing the motherboard fix this if i damaged one of the ports? thanks for your help

Yes, if you replace Motherboard your supply should work fine on new one.

Heya,
I think your motherboard is broken, but lets try something, maybe we could fix problem.


  • Shutdown your PC, unplug all cables from power.
  • Open it and find little battery on your Motherboard.

  • Please, be careful with motherboard.
  • Remove the battery with your fingers.
  • Find your RAM memory, and remove it.
  • Remove power supply connector from motherboard, also CD/DVD drive and Hard Disc Drive cables.
  • CLEAN you computer inside with some brush.
  • Leave computer for more than 2 minutes without battery and RAM, cables and others stuff we disconnected, than put it inside motherboard again.
  • Plug-in your cables and turn On PC.
Now i can only wish you luck

If this steps didn't help you, some components are still there and work, you should visit some of PC store and ask them is it possible to fix motherboard problem.

If they can't, only thing you can do - > Buy new motherboard.

That's the bad news
