PC Can Not Boot

By akinurb ·
Hi,
My PC's problem is:
My PC was working well, some reason I remove its Hard Disk, and set an another PC's HD, try to start PC, its not start, Pres F1 set the BIOS, startup from HD, can not start.

Replace and set up first HD, I mean its own HD. Try to start. Nothing shows in the Monitor. PC's power is OK, Fan is runinig. CD can open, But FD is not working, HD has no sound, don't know its working or not. F1, F2, Delete or Pause Break press but don't show the BIOS setup in the Monitor. Change Jumper set (I forget which Jumper set is perfect) and try but NO RESULT.

PLEASE ANSWER ME AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

Well provided that you took some precautions to prevent any Static Damage it could be something as simple a a power lead being part way removed.

I would first make sure that everything is plugged in properly and it may even help if you remove the different Cards and reseat them as well as the RAM.

If that doesn't do any good you'll have to start looking else where and my first suspect would be the HDD remove it and see what if anything happens. If you get a picture on the screen the most likely problem was that the Ribbon cable was plugged in the wrong way round.

If you get nothing without the HDD wired up the most likely thing is that the M'Board has taken a Static Discharge and destroyed it. At this point you need to start replacing the M'Board and working from there. It would also be a good idea to Rattle the case around to see if there are any loose screws in it as they could be causing problems and even unscrewing the M'Board after removing any plug in cards and lifting it up to see if anything drops down. It could be something as simple as a part of the M'Board contacting Earth when its not supposed to be or it could be something far more devastating to the system.

I agree with HAL,and have a few other thing's to try before replacing mb. Being a builder and repair Tech, I have come across several different approaches to trouble shooting. The 1st being as Hal said try reseating your video card {sometime's but "not" reccomended}using 1 thumb on video card {being static grounded} fired up system and it comes on thus proving it's need of resetting.2 If you have a different card try replacing old video and see if it works.3 reseting {shorting} bios and clearing it so to go back to factory defaults has worked.4{prolly should be #1} check your monitor connection to video card,sometimes it's not plugged in good! Now with hat being said please follow "HALS" reccomendation's and add mine to those step's and good luck...I hope that you find a simple soultion...(oh yeah set the hd jumper's to master/if no success cable select} And most ribbon cable's hav a red line marking #1 pin be sure to ck that as well and find #1 on hdd. Both of these are usually located on bottom of hdd.

I had the same problem and it turned out to be the power supply. My computer started and the fan ran but just like yours I did not hear the hard drive nor did anything show on the screen to allow me to get into the BIOS.
Good Luck.

Just an idea, maybe the problem come from the cable, if you use a IDE HD, maybe the problem come from the position of you HD on the cable, have you tried all the other empty slots on the cable ?

I remember that there is something to do with the plug and the pink (or red) section of the cable . . . Have to see

You have to set the correct position of the HD to the IDE cable,if you see the red or pink color in the IDE cable it must be in the right side of the HD which is align to the red color cable in your power connector plug in your HD.

I hope it helps.
