Question about Asrock K7VT4A+ Motherboard

17 Answers

Computer powers off while booting, green light stays on!

My computer was acting funny, it was rebooting on its own about 2-3 times a day, when it would reboot it would stay on the screen where it counts memory etc. for about 7-10 minutes before going to Windows, thought it was a CPU done. I went to work and got the CPU out of my computer there, put it in and started my computer, it started to boot, monitor came on and saw boot screen and then it died, monitor shut off, fans shut off, but green light is on the front of case, reset button does nothing and neither does power button. Only way to reboot is to unplug. Put my old CPU back in and it does the same. So what did I when I changed the CPU and what was wronng before I changed the CPU. Is my motherboard done? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    When I power up, I can hear all the fans starting. About 30 seconds all power drops. I replaced the power supply which gave me the same results.
    Could it be the motherboard?????

1. check the cpu fan is properly working with normal speed..

2. go to bios setup and restore all settings to default.

3. if windows start and problem comes after some time , then it might be virus. so, go for a virus scan.

Another thing thing to consider is the quality and capacity of the power supply. If the power supply is bad it won't supply power properly which will cause the motherboard to work incorrectly if it works at all. If the power supply is too weak or worn out then the undervoltages will cause the same type of problems.

As habib suggests make sure that the CPU cooler is properly installed with either a thermal pad or thermal compound. Failure to do so may damage the CPU.

It could be bad RAM. Our HP Pavilion Media Centre did same thing. I ran disk doctor and found that there were failing areas in the system memory. I had to send my unit back 3 times until they actually fixed it. I really think it was bad RAM though. They never really told me what exactly was the problem.

It seems as if it would be memory but i think the PSU should be checked. Along with the connections, CPU , and reseat the memory. This motherboard is picky with the RAM.

Reebooting as habib said might really be overheating. In any case, since I work with these damn boads, I tell you I changed every part in a computer wearing that board and with the same illness you describe, and the problem still persisted, untill I ended up replacing the board, still with a Biostar but this time with a P4M890, let's be real... same crap different name, but let's also be honest, in 3 months it didn't do that anymore (not it faces other problems like getting stuck in Post and loading the RAM with static electricity). Try Habib solution, if it persits, I really recoment you dive in you paperwork in a quest for your warranty!

Fixed! motherboard to the trash, installed new one and solved problems!

Posted on May 23, 2007

Although the fault is probably relating to the temp of the processor being too high causing reboot meaning the first answer is correct it could also be a power issue, ie the main power psu unit is failing to deliver enough power to the motherboard and/or processor. Recheck all power connectors on the motherboard but do it with safety in mind at all times.

First check if it's not over heating(make sure all your fans turn on)Then run an antivirus scan. If all that checks out, then try unplugging your harddrive, to see if boots normally, if it does, then try your harddrive on another pc which you know works. It could be your harddrive going out.If your harddrive works great on another pc. I could be motherboard related problem.If your harddrive doesnot work fine on another pc then backup your files.

Make sure the cooling fan is properly seated on the CPU, and make sure you have enough (but not too much!) thermal compound covering the CPU's core. That *should* fix the issue.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?


Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

Aux power led light is amber on dimension E521


I think your problem is your memory or video card.

Below are some steps that I recommend.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Maybe your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan turn on or hard drive spin.


Below are links and info I found from Dell's Website based on your model.


http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dime521/en/SM_EN/specs.htm

Controls and Lights Front of computer:

Power button - push button

Power light
green light - Blinking green in sleep state; solid green for power-on state.
amber light - Blinking amber indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this indicates a problem with the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).

Diagnostic lights
four lights on the front panel (see Diagnostic Lights.)

Standby power light
AUX_PWR_LED on the system board

Hard-drive activity light
green light - When the computer is reading data from or writing data to the hard drive.

LAN indicator light

green light - Solid green indicates that a LAN (local area network) connection is established.
