PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Generic PC, Duron 1.1, MSI K7T Turbo Motherboard
Error Messages:None


When I press the power switch, the CPU fan spins for a only few seconds and quits.  Nothing else happens; no lights nor sounds.  I can cause the above action to repeat by pressing the power switch after a minimum delay of about 3 seconds.

This is a new board which was installed about three weeks ago.

PROBLEM RESOLVED

Thanks to the goldmine of info on this "helpwithpcs.com" site, I have been able to solve my problem.  Although the suggestion for remedy did not come via a direct response, I gleaned enough information, sifting through the answers to the many other similar queries found here pointed me in the direction of cure.

It appears that one or more of the screws that secured my floppy drive to the computer case were too tight and likely preventing it from revolving.  I discovered this by removing the power cable from the drive and behold, on power-up, the CPU fan came to life and the POST beeps started.

(As per suggestions on this site, I had already disconnected the floppy and the other drive's from the Motherboard and had also removed the power supply cables from the two HDs.)



A big Thank You to "helpwithpcs.com".
