Question about Asrock 775VM800 Motherboard

1 Answer

Unknown Shutdown My computer froze up on me, and I rebooted. After the reboot, it still remained sluggish. It then shut down completely and will not power up. When I open the case, and look at the motherboard, the fans for the cpu and the case start up briefly ( about 3-5 seconds) then shut off. What could it be? I think it's the motherboad, but how can I tell without swapping it out with a known good one?

    I tested the power supply also. I forgot to mention that in my previous post. I thought it was the power supply at first, but because I was getting power to the cpu and to the fan on the case, even though it was brief, I ruled out the power supply. I even tested it with a multimeter. I haven't tried to swap drives because my main drive (the one with the OS on it) is a SATA drive. I don't have a back up SATA drive to test. My other drive is an IDE and is simply a storage drive. I didn't think of the RAM as a possible problem. Could it be anything else besides the power supply or the RAM?

    I'll try the RAM. If that doesn't work, I'll try the CMOS battery. I never overclocked the system.

    I'll give it a try. Thanks.

I think this may be your power supply failing. That would be the best place to start. What you could do for debugging purposes is remove all unneccesary components (extra CD drives, extra PCI cards) and test the system then. Also test the RAM to make sure there is not an issue with one of the sticks (although, the computer would most likely beep at you if there was upon power). Also, if you have a backup harddrive, try swapping it with the current one.

I would mostly guess it is the power supply though. If you have a backup or spare computer, try connecting the power supply to that one and see if it boots ok.

    The RAM could actually be a problem. Try taking it out, clean it off (air can or something, and the contacts on the mobo) and put it back in.. You could also try swapping the CMOS battery with a new one, as it can sometimes cause these types of problems.

    Another thought, have you overclocked the system at all?

    If none of those things work. Perhaps you had a power surge and in that case, what you could do is leave your system off (and unplugged) for a couple of days to let the power supply discharge fully, and then plug it back in and turn it on. Sounds strange, but might just do the trick...

Tip

Create One-Click Shutdown and Reboot Shortcuts:


First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard appears. In the box asking for the location of the shortcut, type shutdown. After you create the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your PC.
But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:
shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC" Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.
I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:
shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!"
Switch What it does
-s Shuts down the PC.
-l Logs off the current user.
-t nn Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.
-c "messagetext" Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.
-f Forces any running applications to shut down.
-r Reboots the PC.

I need to reboot my laptop but i don't know how


Reboot essentially means restarting the computer. This is two types
1. Warm Reboot: where you go to start on windows task bar and choose shut down but when prompted choose restart. This way computer shuts down momentarily and restarts!
2. Cold Reboot: By this means you choose to shut down and again when prompted choose shut down! This makes computer off completely until restart by pressing power button.
Booting is computer Lingo for above procedures!

How do i reboot my laptop advent 7087


Rebooting is a function of the operating system and Ctrl Alt Del, works the same on all hardware platforms or you can choose the shutdown / reboot option from the start menu.

If the operating system has hung completely most machines will switch off if you just hold the power button down for 5 seconds or so. This should only be used as a last resort when nothing else will shut the computer is down. This is equivalent to pulling the plug out of the wall for a desk top computer.

Beyond that you can disconnect the power and pull the battery out but it should never come to that.

I hope this answer matches your question.

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

I installed nero 8 on my xp pc as a trial, i uninstalled the program via add/remove programs - the problem i have now is my pc wont shut down completely and wont reboot, when rebooting or shutting down it...


Hi PC;
try booting up in safe mode then shutdown from there, see if you still hang on the blank blue screen.

to go to safe mode, tap F8 when your pc is booting up.

get back to me for feedback. :)
