Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

1 Answer

I turn on my PC than half second turn off itself

Ok I got this IBM machine when I try to turn on, it turns on for half a sec and then it turns off. It will just keep on trying to do the same thing if I leave it without unpluggin the power. First I thought the PSU was bad, so I changed that but that wasn't the problem. I tried to change RAM as well... could this be the motherboard problem? My assumption is it is but I do not have another motherboard to test it out... anyone had/have similar problem? Thanks

It could be a motherboard problem, but, this may sound silly, but it could also be a stuck up power or reset button. I had this experience with a desktop pc where the power button got stuck in its "press" position. Try removing the connection of these switches from the mboard and use a metal screw driver to act as the switch by momentarily shorting the power switch connection on the board.

--you can also check the cmos battery of the pc. These newer boards would refuse to even power up if the cmos battery are drained.

IBM Lenovo doesnt start. Fans are ok Ram and Graphics card attached with the system is ok( I checkd with another system). The led on front , the keyboard leds and cd driv leds turns on as soon as I press...


Sounds like your graphics card and display are not properly communicating. If the card doesn't sent out a signal to the display, you will see nothing on the screen. Did you check the graphics card on another machine using the same display? If so, something different may be wrong. I am assuming your display is powered on and plugged in properly. If there is more than one video connector on the machine, you may have it plugged into the inactive video connector. If all of this checks out I suspect you have some hardware problem with the system unit.

Startup problem


try pressing F8 on start up and getting into the safe mode and highlight last known good configuration. If still no luck try this:- Only other solution is to remove right side panel of pc and locate the JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and back again. Turn on pc and then hopefully you can access the bios to set the time and date and save settings then re start.
