Without having the specs on the motherboard or knowing how old it is, it's difficult to say if it is beyond repair. Although my experience with computers shutting down that quickly while attempting to boot have been a problem related to processor overheating. Processors get very hot within seconds of powering on. If the processor cooling fan or the thermal paste is not working as intended the system will shut down quickly. You may want to check those two possibilities before purchasing a new motherboard.

Trys to start but when its loading it turns off...its a dell inspiron 1545 i tried to start it on safe mode and nothing it turns off


I have some things I might be asking you to do first. Because this might be a heat issue but just to make sure try these steps first.

Remove batter and charger.

Hold down power button for 20 seconds.

Remove the RAM or memory chip. By doing this the computer will give you 2 beeps and a pause then another 2 beeps just right after you power on the computer. While computer is beeping check if the laptop will turn off automatically.

If yes then HEATSINK, THERMAL PAD and FAN needs to be replaced.

If the laptop stays ON and beeping and beeping it means it might be the RAM. So test the RAMs one at a time. Run the computer using 1 RAM at the moment then try the other slot. Do the same thing on the other RAM.

If still turn off with each RAM tested the have the MOBO or PROC replaced.

I have a Gigabyte EX38 DS4 motherboard. A few months ago the power light light would blink after I shut windows down and it wouldn't turn on again. If I unplugged the computer for a while it would stop...


As you may already know, your computer will shut down after power on if if the power supply does not receive a power good signal from the motherboard. Since you already tested the PSU in another computer, and you know the PSU is good, either you have a bad mobo or some device connected to the power supply is draining excessive power from the PSU and causing it to shut down.

Try removing the 4 pin pin power plugs from ALL devices, such as the floppy drive, CD drives etc.
If the system stays on when you power up, then you can isolate the faulty device by re-connecting them one-by-one. If the system still shuts down your Mobo or CPU is bad and you might want to take it to a PC technician to determine if it's worth fixing.

Power button does not light, fans run but computer does not send signal to monitor. Replaced power supply, no change. Put in new graphics card, still does not generate video that would allow me to change...


no HP PC stated just a MOBO. must we guess?
no the power button is just 2 wires, a digital line and ground
it must be plugged in to the correct MOBO jack.
in fact i can turn it on with a simple jumper wire, there.
i guess you found the board, in garage sale, just tossed in a box?
if the local vga jack and added in VGA card both fail then its a mobo issue.

im googling for you.
lets see what POPS
Compaq Brio ATX PGA370 New D7580-60003 *
This motherboard is only compatible with Celeron 400 CPUs
With integrated SiS Super AGP graphics controller?
takes 1 good RAM stick.
if the fan fails to stay on, that means the PSU sees errors.
mostly sees shorts on MOBO(remove things to find it)
that one old mobo is rare, now.
is the coin cell at 3vdc, or below 2.9v, if yes, needs new one.
HP has zero data (information) on this old mobo or the COMPAQ BRIO anything.

No display on monitor


if you have a video card in it try connecting it to the motherboards vga/dvi and see if you get any video. if not it could be ram/cpu or mobo if its not beeping my bet is on the mobo

The motherboard the shut down when switched on


Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.

Stand by


Standby does not turn off the computer. It reduces power consumption but does not turn the CPU off or the power supply. Because the cpu is still on the cooling fan stays on to cool it. If you want it to turn the fan off or be silent I suggest using hibernate or shutting it down completely.

Computer shuts down but does not turn off


Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.
  • Open control panel > open the system control panel
  • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
  • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
  • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
  • click ok
  • click ok

  • Open control panel > open power options
  • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
  • in the power buttons section,
  • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
  • click ok
Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.
