Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard

2 Answers

Suddenly quit and won't start.

I've been using this computer for several years with no recent changes to its hardware or software. Last night while entering data, the monitor, fans, drives all suddenly stopped. The power LED was still lit. Keyboard and mouse wouldn't get it to do anything so I pressed the power switch and it was off. When I press the power switch now, the CPU fan runs for a second and stops. Nothing else happens. No beeps. I swapped in a power supply from a good pc and it behaves exactly the same. (I'm now writing this message on the pc with the good PS back in it.) Any ideas? Failed motherboard? Failed CPU? Thanks

Could be a processor failure, but try changing the cmos battery first on the mobo and locate 'JBAT1' terminal on mobo and put jumper across pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2 and try starting up again.

If it is a real BSOD you can turn off the power. Try a LiveDVD Linux distribution to make sure your hardware works. You may need to fix hardware (what changed last or recently?) or uninstall new software or reinstall Windows. You may need an expert to help you out. Do you know anyone in their last year of Junior High School (or above)?

What does the device manager say about the hardware?
It could be loss of the usb device controller. Windows XP is old and that is an indication that the hardware is old too.
