Solved PC does not start

Gigabyte / M61pme-s2p

Specs: Windows XP, 2.712 GHz / 2047 MB
When I try to switch on my PC it does not boot. The monitor goes into stand by mode, the CPU fans & lights are working, the CD tray works, the mouse light is ON but the keyboard lights are not ON. I removed the RAM & tried starting the PC but there was no beep sound.

Can anyone advise on what could be the problem & how to get it fixed.

My pc is working now. All I did was removed the main plug of the PSU which was attached to the motherboard & cleaned it & removed the motherboard battery & cleaned it as well.

Do you have another PSU you can try? your PSU could be faulty, if you can try another and let us know how it goes.

Thanks for your reply.

I installed a new power unit some months back because the old one was faulty. So I am not sure if that is the problem & I do not have a spare one.

Is there anything else that could be the reason for the PC to stop working?

Not the only possibility but the most likely. If you are handy with a multi-meter it should be possible to prove whether the PSU is working.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It is fairly simple to test a PSU with a multimeter especially if you have done it a few times, probably worth testing it

here is a guide

If this isnt something you are comfortable doing then i would suggest buying or borrowing a PSU - this is possibly the easiest option.

Until you eliminate the PSU it wouldnt be worth probing any further

Glad to hear it. That was a good move on your part - so often connections can play up. Thanks for popping back to let us know.
