One push of the front power on button is not enough to even get the computer on. It takes several pushes of the front power on button to get it started and it runs but nothing on monitor (monitor is fine) and this is not just for my own Scaleo L but a 2nd one I bought. Does this give a clue to where the problem is? Would this be a Power Supply Problem or Motherboard Problem or CPU problem?
Below is my original post for reference.
Hi All. I posted this problem about one month ago and it still has not been resolved. My PC is a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo L model. I purchased it new in 2008. About two months ago it began causing problem (Please see my previous post here on this problem). I eventually got the computer to boot as the screen said "No Signal" and when I pressed the on button on the front panel, ordinarily the Cooling Fan would rev high for a few seconds and then settle down but about one month ago after I got it working again, I restarted the PC and it decided not to come back on with the screen saying "No Signal" and since then when I press the on button on the front panel, the Cooling Fan stays rev high for 50 seconds and then I can hear the Cooling Fan beginning to settle down to normal speed after about 60 to 90 seconds. Today I unplugged everything and removed the Motherboard MS - 7504VER : 1.0 from the Computer Case to have a closer look at the Motherboard and to take some photos. I was hoping to upload the photos here but cannot do that on here from my mobile phone. However I have taken a lot of photos and would be happy to email them if anyone cares to take a look. If so please post a reply with your email address and I will send them. I have looked online for an exact same model computer as mine so that I can plug my HDD in and get back to work but as yet I have been unable to find an exact same model. There are Scaleo P's about but not sure if that would work. I will be getting another used PC next week so that I can plug my HDD in. I should mention that my PC is dual core as I'm not sure if I mentioned this when posting previously. I have been trying to eliminate what the issue might be but having ruled out some things like Monitor, I am now at a loss as to what it might be. I may buy another PSU and RAM and see if either of those are the issue or failing that I would like to try another motherboard but I would prefer to pick up an identical PC so that I could plug my HDD in and get back to work. If anyone has any suggestions plesse let me know.
