Question about Jetway 939GT4-SLI-G Motherboard

1 Answer

Tops blown off

Last month while running my computer there was a loud electrical snap from inside the computer.
I didn't really think anything about cause the computer was still running and I havn't any problems with it.
Today I went to put the motherboard into a new case and I notice 4 capacitors (I think) with their tops blown off.
The number on them are F255-1500--6.3v.
Question is why is the board still running?
Can I keep on running it?
I'm fixing to check to see what kind of warranty this board has and what do I tell the RMA people what is wrong if the board still works?

This isn't going to solve your issue, but my opinion is that if even if your computer is still running it is still an issue that they should look at especially if the board is still under warranty. I wouldn't say a thing about the computer still being able to run, especially if they will warranty it.

I have seen capacitors burn up, but not the tops blowing off. Even though the board is still working you may have a feature of some sort out, such as you onboard video or something. I almost bet that something is still wrong, and it would be a matter of time before you have more issues.

How to change cmos battery asus b202


Power down and unplug the electric cable. Open the side of your computer. On the motherboard there is a small, silver battery that looks like a US quarter. That snaps out. Usually there is a small wire snap of some kind that holds it in. Press that to one side and the battery will come out. There will be a number on one side, take that battery to any retail store and buy another. When installing, be sure to keep the polarity correct, do not reverse the battery or the computer will do really strange things and probably will not even boot.

Whats the big problem of my windows vista when i turned it on it shutdown in a few seconds,and the monitor keep on black.


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot
Go to 'Start' and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'System configuration utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
go to 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
Now restart windows.

Just do the following steps and your issue will be resolved.


1) Delete all unwanted data from Drive C.


2) Delete all data that you have copied from Drive C to External HDD


3) Open My computer and go to Tools---> Folder Options---->Click on View Tab----> Check 'Show hidden files and folders' and select OK.


4) Go to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp and Delete everything that you see inside Temp Folder


5) Go to C:\WINDOWS\ here you will find folders like $hf_mig$, here you will have to Delete all the folders starting and ending with $ sign.


6) Empty Recycle bin and restart the PC and your issue will be resolved.

May go for 6 months ok then does random reboots


I would suggest shutting down at least once a month for general maintenance such as dusting the fans off and cleaning the computer case.

If you are running for 6 months straight with out a single shut down that is negligence on your behalf to your computer & to the hardware inside. A lot of dust that accumulates may not seem like much to you but the amount that does accumulate will damage the hardware given enough time.

I hate to think of how much dust is accumulated inside it I like to give my PC a light cleaning each month. Generally a few quick hits with a compressed air canister is enough to keep the PC dust free.

Try unplugging the computer completely from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in, and see if it will power on.

If it doesn't it's most likely a blown power supply, when the breaker tripped, everything on the circuit basically fed back into everything plugged in. This is something most computer power supplies do NOT like.
The good news is, a power supply is generally pretty cheap, you can get new power supplies atarting around 20 bucks, although decent quality ones are closer to 50 bucks. Bad news is, there is about a 1 in 20 chance the power supply took other parts with it.
Once you do get it running, or get another computer, make sure to get a surge protector strip and plug everything connected to the computer into the surge protector. A 15 dollar surge protector can save you 150 dollars in parts and labor. (or more)

Blown dell motherboard


Have you checked to make sure it wasn't the power supply? If this motherboard is still inside the pc and the cd/dvd lights up, or the network card shows life, fans, case lights, etc: than I would rule bad mobo. If nothing shows signs of life, try power supply or even better maybe a lose connection.Check all cabling and wire plugs. Clean out any dust.

Motherboard, cooling unit connection broke


Probably need a new board. If you try to start the pc without the heatsink tied down really tightly to the cpu, it will burn out the cpu in seconds. I think the part you are referring to is part of the built in cpu socket. Don't think it is removable.
