Computer won't boot after car crash Reward $2
Created by HatsuneMiku, 1370 days ago, 3041 views

Heya everyone... Super bad all the parts come for my computer the computer worked fine before but had overheating problems so I brought it a powerful cpu cooler has it fitted by a professional, but on the way home I had a bad car crash about 30mph into a parked car

The computer looked alright the only issue was the Ram had snapped the holder and was out but I just put it in another slot the only other thing was one of the motherboards integrated chips cool sink looked a little lose

I thought it would be fine I plugged it in turned it on and all the fans come on, but thats it I don't even get a post beep or a display or anything

Not sure how I could even tell what's broken but any help would be greatly appreciated

Best to get a new motherboard, if repairing is not done by professionals, then you can have serious problems, like melting, even explosion....

@ha14 the motherboard hasn't been repaired I just had a new cooler added but if it's a problem with the bored then it's gonna cost me any £120 for a new one...

@HatsuneMiku. I would suggest first checking out the power supply or the SMPS is fine or not. If the SMPS is fine then next comes your motherboard. Check if the cables for power are all connected and any soldering from the motherboard is off in that area.
Your best bet is if the SMPS is at fault. If it's not then your better off getting a whole new PC.
First check the power, then we can troubleshoot further.

@ha14 I did try resetting CMOS but it made no difference, I'm gonna take it back to the computer shop tomorrow but frankly I don't know if they will know what's up with it either

It should be the ram, try remove the ram and clean it, then clean the ram slot holes, if that doesn't work, try get another ram and test it, if that doesn't still work, then I think you might need to change your motherboard...

Omg kinda just wasted all your time... The idiot that put it all together for me forgot to plug in the CPU power cable thing I plugged it in and it's fine lol was a hell of a lot of hassle to get the RAID working tho... Had to go via floppy to get windows to recognise the drivers, I thought that kinda weird for a modern gigabyte board

Hi @HatsuneMiku

If problem is solved then fine. If you have issue live beep sound and computer don't boot the count the beep sound and search for beep code in you pc manufacturer website. Because it will tell you the exact error reason. You will be able to solve problem immediately.

For windows wired problem. If you have removed cmos battery without proper bios backup. Try to repair install the windows. If that fails, try to reinstall the windows.
