Ultra10 3750115 Motherboard displays watchdog reset intermittently

After extended sunvts loop, this system unexpectedly goes to "OK" prompt then displays watchdog reset. after isolation between system components, I'm sure that it was caused by a defective motherboard. how am i going to troubleshoot and repair (up to component level as much as possible) this motherboard? please help...

Windows shuts down unexpectedly


This problem has been solved. There was intermittent contact inside the power switch on the front of the case causing the motherboard to issue a shut-down request to the operating system. Switch replaced and system is now stable.

System reset by watchdog.tion


I've never seen a watchdog.tion error but watchdog errors can be set up on some CMOS when the 5v power from the power supply is bad.
I can't find anything on your specific error tho but I would try a different Power Supply Unit.

The computer will not start up until the reset has been hit many times or it has been turned off nad back on. It gets into a loop and a counter reaches about 180 and it recycles or the loop goes through...


Hi

Please try the folowing

1) Remove ALL cables including the power cable from the back of the PC

2) Hold the power button in for approx 20 seconds (yes i know there is no power going to it)

3) Plug everything back in and retry

From what you are saying the above should cure the fault, however if it doesnt then the next option is too book the PC in as it seems there may be a motherboard/PSU fault

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Memory Upgrade causing reboots


Have you tried to start the computer back up without the new RAM module in?

If it doesn't get stuck in that reboot loop, you either have the wrong RAM or a faulty RAM module.

If it does start up but still reboot , then you can start narrowing the issue down to the motherboard.

You should be able to send it right back and pick up the right one. If you give me the MOBO's make and model I can also tell you what type of RAM you should be running.
