My IBM Type/Model 83523U Flash EEDROM 24KT45AUS Revision Level

My CPU is an older model IBM. and when I turn it on it starts to boot up but right after the screen that says System Startin in Normal Mode before it should start windows it automatically reboots. Now I like to think I know a bit about computers. So Ive been able to only via F1 or F12 get to any other type of screen other than those other options on trying to remedy a solution to this particular problem Sir. Can u possibly help me or give a suggestion. I've been searching the web via Googleing the problem and haven't had any help thus far.

Your Windows simply isn't booting. It may give additional information, flashing it on the screen just before it does.

Try to start in Safe Mode by hitting F8 just as it says "Starting Windows". If you can boot in safe mode, you may be able to further diagnose the problem. If you get into safe mode, go to Start: Control Panels: System: Device Manager. See if any devices have error symbols next to them.


At this point, though, you may just want to save some time and try to boot off your Windows installation disks and reinstall Windows.

DO NOT USE A "SYSTEM RESTORE" disk -- that will wipe out your hard drive so it looks just like it did from the factory -- a working copy of Windows, but all your pictures, documents and everything else will be gone for good.

Cpu fan > just stops working


Most likely there is some kind of software management of the fan.
Boot to the BIOS CMOS settings, and see whether there is a "Quiet Fan" or "Q-Fan" setting (or the like) enabled.
Disable this by selecting "Fan runs always".
If you could provide the model number of the desktop, I may be able to give you more specifics.

Trying to upgrade cpu.


Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/netvista_pdf/24p2969.pdf

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.

I am trying a IBM 2170 MOD#804 WORKING AGAIN. It was working before I switched out the ram, I put the same ram back in, but it will come up anymore. any ideas?


the model supports up to 256MB of SDRAM. Please note only specific kinds work with computers.This machine is a little outdated, you could upgrade your mobo/cpu/mem which would be costly or work with what you have.
you could Flash the BIOS http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4JSSC9.html
BIOS is short for Basic Input/Output System, and checks your hardware (memory), graphics, keyboard, mouse before allowing it to boot into an Operating System.
Usually Flashing a BIOS to a newer version can fix pre-boot problems. Also don't forget to check the RAM sticks are properly snapped all the way in, sometimes they won't be clipped in fully which causes beeping errors on boot. Hope this helps you out.

Ibm not boot from usb


When the system starts up there is usually a key to hit for SETUP, usually ESC, F1, F4, or DEL

Find it, and hit it at the right time.

You will enter the CMOS or BIOS setup.

Once there, locate the BOOT SEQUENCE section and allow a USB boot or external component Boot to be placed int he sequence it it MIGHT work.

Not sure what you're trying to boot from USB for.

I have a medion 3.4 turns on but dont boot up and leaves the screen blank prob started when ciosed down would not open up


If it is beeping more than once when you start it up, you will need to either find the error codes for your motherboard/bios or post your motherboard type and model and bios type and revision here. Simple possible solutions: Make sure you do not have a floppy in your floppy disk drive Make sure there is no CD in your CD drive Make sure your HD is connected properly, and set to Master or CS (if your MoBo supports cable select) and has an Operating system installed on it. Make sure your RAM is present and seated properly (in the sockets all the way and aligned) If none of these solves your problem please get back to us with your mobo model and bios type / revision and error code. It IS possible that 1 or more of your hardware components is dead or malfunctioning.

Motherboard manufact, and no. listed over it


Usually there are product numbers silkscreened onto the motherboard, or on a sticker on one of the slots. these numbers can be instrumental on finding the manufacturer / model of your motherboard.

As you can see in Figure 1, the motherboard is clearly an Asus P7P55-Pro Motherboard. Searching asus website, or google for Asus P7P55 pro will turn up lots of information on this board.

Older boards can be more difficult to identify, but there are usually part numbers, and board revision numbers printed on them, or a sticker on them to help the technician's identify the board.

I hope this solution has been helpful for you.

Processor upgrade causes computer not to boot


You seem to be on the right track here. I would look at the documentation that came with your new CPU and note the voltages it requires, Here is the link to the Maintenance manual for your motherboard. http://www-304.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-45692&brandind=5000008
