TS140 will no longer boot up

2020-08-16, 7:38 AM

My TS140 is no longer booting up, I press the button and nothing happens.

 

This had been an intermittent fault occurring every couple of months it simply wouldn't boot up, but previously after checking all internal connections (unplugging and re-plugging) it would be fixed. This no longer works.

 

It's now the case that when you unplug the power to the mother board it will look as if it is going to power up immediately as you plug the power back into the mother board i.e without pressing the power button. It makes the right sounds as if it's powering up and then 3-4 seconds later it powers down. Then at that point pressing the power button does nothing again.

 

Does anyone on here know what the problem might be?

It turns out I hadn't unplugged and re-plugged everything. My 7 year old nagged me a bit more and I had one more try :)

 

This time I unplugged the CPU fan and the computer booted up fine.

 

Does anyone know what this could be? I feel it's sure to re-occur at some point.

Hi Goose1987

 

Generally speaking, this may take lots of time to diagnose the problem to know where the problem is.

After you have had problems these few times, have you tried to collect or review the event log in Setup Utility program interface?

Thanks for coming back to me. I think that must be done while booting to BIOS? Will give that a go.
