Digital Sprite 2 screen freezes, reboot good for a few hours then freezes again.

check the system fans they need changing every 2 years. check the hard drive-s are not over heating should be changed every 4 years. check the psu is giving out the right volts can be checked on the hard drive plug when system is plugged in if voltage is to low 12.83v is fine 5.8volts is fine under the 12v or 5v mark it makes the system crash freeze up or just the red light flashing and a buzzing sound coming from the system. psu if you don't hear a fan going round then the psu has over heated and the power coming out will have dropped. replacement capacitors and fan can be found on the bay cheap make note were they are and replace. fan is a bearing type and costs a bit more. can use a none bearing type but it will need changing every year. 12v type think it was a 30mm or 40mm type.

Power supply has several voltages. Just because the 5v power is active doesn't mean all the voltages are OK. You need to have the power supply tested for 12v and 3.3v. A quick test is to unplug all the wires from the power supply. There is a single green wire on the motherboard main plug. Connect (use a bent paper clip) that green switch wire and any black wire. Plug in the power supply and it should run (fan starts)

Doesn't start. Green LED off. Red light permanently lighted.

First, try replacing the power supply. If this does not work then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Won't boot up, Fans are on non-stop

Open up the pc with power off. After cleaning with a blowing or sucking device, gently press on the connections and plug-in devices. Retry.

If no avail, the power supply or the motherboard may have bit the dust. U can get them repaired or replaced.... or save the HD and buy a another pc and add the old HD as a data disk.

Ensure that you got the cpu fan connected to the correct place, the board has 2 one for the cpu fan andt the other for a system controlled case fan.

If that dont work check to see you got the power supply connected to the board propperly, there is a seperate 4 pin connector using 2 yellow and 2 black wires ensure it is correct.

Check your power supply

unplug the power supply and bridge the green wire with the black one next to it to see if it comes on. OR JUST CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLY TO SEE IF IT WORKS.
