3. The Problem of the Motherboard

If connections and the power adapter work well, the start up failure could be caused by the motherboard. Here, we should have a check of the cable connection between the motherboard and the other components as well as the power supply button. If it still does not work after checking and fixing, please replace or repair the motherboard.
