No boot, casing problem?

I have a couple of computers and one of the 1U "cases" might be causing my motherboard to ground. It works in another case but not the one it's supposed to be in. Weird, huh? I checked for any loose screws or anything that would cause it to ground when I took the motherboard out of the bad case. I've tried reseating CPU's, memory, etc. but can't figure out what is causing this not to boot. Any other tips on what to look for?

Re: No boot, casing problem?

What is the powersupply in the 1U case. Is it sufficient for this motherboard? Try using the powersupply from another case that you know works with this board and see what happens. The larger standard ATX powersupply won't "fit" the 1U case but you should be able to run wires to allow you to test with.

CS35-TL motherboard

I believe what you are seeing is the monitor displaying "no input signal". My question at this point is, how do you know the motherboard is running? Are you getting the single beep for successful post? or are you just hearing the fans kick on when power is applied and assuming its working? The computer kicking on but not posting can be caused by a grounding issue from the mother board to the case. You can buy small rubber washers at the hardware store to place between the case and the motherboard were the screws go in. This will eliminate most grounding issues. If what I have said is not the case, then please clarify your post some.

When I turn on my computer turns off quickly with out show me the boot up screen

maybe your sata connection or ide connection is not connected well or in some cases it doesn't detect the processor fan control sensor it turns the comp off after a couple secs. Are there any beeps associated with it turning off? Also, just open up the case and make sure everything appears to power on.

Booting problem and hang

Make sure that the motherboard is not being grounded, meaning that it should not touch any metal inside the case, this can cause an instant short which will make it not boot.

I have an Asus p5w dh deluxe MB and it will not boot. It starts, beeps once, then shuts down.

Try removing one DIMM (stick of ram), and booting. If that doesn't work, remove the other DIMM (assuming you have two), and try to boot again. If that fails, roll up your sleeves and get to troubleshooting.

Is this a new build? If so, take the motherboard out of the case, leave it on either the motherboard's box that it came in, or anti-static bags, and leave only the power connected to the motherboard. Try booting it to rule out a short coming from a misplaced stand-off inside the case. If it boots, check where your stand-offs are inside the case, making sure none are contacting the actual circuitry on the back of the motherboard.
If all of this fails, you may just have a bad motherboard, contact the manufacturer for RMA procedures.

P4C800-E Deluxe Motherboard: I plugged in my ipod to a USB port and my system j...


The cause for this is there was a short some where. It could have been the USB port, the cable or the IPOD its self.

You might try another USB port on the computer to see if you have the same problem.

If your computer will not boot then you might need to clear the flee power offf the system. You can do this by unpluging the AC power and holding in the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. Then plug back in the system and it should boot.

If the computer will not boot then you may have a ground issue. This does not happen much any more but I had this happen on a friends computer once where the case was worped and when i put my USB drive is the computer did the same as yours. The issue was the force of me putting the USB drive in shifted the board and caused it to ground out. So you may need to take everything out of the case and reseat the motherboard.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Cpu test

on the top of the screw to prevent the metal screw to ground in the motherboard. Make it sure that the screw only grounded to the casing. Check also some metal in the back of the casing maybe it also the cause of the motherboard grounded.

P4M80-M4 not powering up

You may have the power and reset connectors on the right terminals, but they may need turning around, normal rule of thumb is if the markings on the connectors are on the outside, then turn them to face inwards.

Problem with motherboard MSI 925XE

A couple things: Is the BIOS giving you an error beeps? Also, does the motherboard have Integrated graphics? Sometimes if the Integrated graphics are enabled, it can cause the graphics card to not display at all. You also might want to check that the CPU doesn't have too little or *more likely* too much thermal compound on it. If the thermal compound is on the bridges of the CPU, this can cause the machine to start, but not boot to the BIOS.
