Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My computer doesn't power up. There is power throught the motherboard as my speakers have power. There was power to my mouse but that seems to have gone now. Has been working fine to date but went to turn it on this morning and nothing happened. There have been no power outages or fluctuations. The computer was working last night. Recently been in for installation of graphics card.

DEAR FRIEND

PLEASE PERFORM FOLLOWING STEPS

1. check whether your cpu fan powers up or not, if yes then check ram , if not proceed to step 2.

2. change smps. see if it works, if not goto step 3

3. change the mb, 100% your mb has gone dead, the symptoms you are telling match both the smps failure as well as m/b failure

thanks

Might be that the power supply you have does not have enough wattage or power to power the new graphics card you have. If you insert or install your old graphics card does that allow it to work ?

Also what wattage power supply do you have and what new graphics card did you get, does the new graphics card have a molex on it to allow you to connect an actual power connector to it ( presuming it will be a 5 volts molex connector ) ?

Some graphics cards require extra power hence the molex conncetors.
