Having problems with your IBM NetVista X41 PC Desktop ?
Ibm netvista x41 wont power up
\015 Measured 12v on PSU\015
Measuring 12v at the psu is not enough.\015\012the psu have several voltage outputs ranging from 12volts to 3.3 volts and maybe even 2.2 volts..\015\012firstly, check all onboard USB ports, a bent or shorted pin in a USB port will prevent the psu from operating.\015\012next, the psu has a safety connection to the mainboard, this is called the power good signal ( pwrgd) and it is a signal from the psu to the mainboard and tells the mainboard that everything in the psu is functioning correctly. If the powergood signal is lost ( drops from 5volts to zero volts) the mainboard will issue an interuppt to the cpu and the cpu will shut down, this will also shut the board down to prevent damage and data loss. mainboards all use pretty much the same connectors so your board will have either a 20 pin power connector or a 24 pin one. It may also have an additional 4 pin connector to power the cpu and northbridge functions.\015\012use a known good psu and plug this into your board along with the 4 pin connector and attempt a switch on. If the system begins to boot, replace the psu. if not, try unplugging or removing everything connected to the board, pay special attention to expansion cards and usb ports.\015\012remove the ram sticks and video cards if fitted, then attempt to boot again. if the system does not respond, replace the main board. if it now begins to boot, refit everything one item at a time and try starting the machine. turn off before refitting the next item and start the machine up again. when you get to the problem item, the machine will stop starting.\015\012If all else fails, replace the mainboard or take the machine to a reputable repairer..
