My computer is almost dead. The fan is running but at an extremely high rate. The PC never starts. :( what can possibly be wrong? Thanks for any helpful replies. :)

One question: Does the PC boots or not?

No, it does not. When i press the button to start my computer the fan starts. And it just runs.

Try to remove peripherals like: memory, sound card, network card things like that.

Huh oh, sounds like a motherboard issue, does it beep at you at all?

^ Fair question. And I add more:

1. What fan exactly is running PSU or CPU cooling fan?
2. Can you hear any HDD activity?

Can be of:

Fried PSU
Fried MoBo
Fried CPU - beeps usually.

How about checking the connection from the PS to the MB?

Yes, the speakers are buildt in on the monitor and it is connected to the PC.

1. You can still check the output voltages from PSU with multimeter, BUT...

2. Most likely (according to described symptoms) the CPU has released a ghost.

BIOS setup parameter loss?
Verify startup device.

Well, then I think your computer has died.

hey Larson! I think Iīm faceing the same probs like you! :(
did you solve yours!?

The funny thing is that my pc was dead before summer - and a frind of mine took the harddrive to save the data - but she couldnīt cause the connections were different ...
then after some weeks when she returned with the harddrive to save the data right from my pc it worked! again! -- but only for three weeks :( now itīs dead again ---

might it be the battery!? :confused:

help pleaze!

^ The faulty/dead battery returns PC to default BIOS parameters on every boot. It won't cause it not to boot.

The same advice - check your PSU voltages, power output and stability.

how to!?

Measure voltages and power output... OR simply change the PSU - it's the cheapest component anyway :)
