VCore voltage problem_+3.3V red.

Hi. I have a problem with my VCore voltage. The 3.3V is at 2.64V and shows red in the Bios. At start up I get the message: Hardware Monitor found an error. What also happens is that after a while of working on my PC, my screen shuts down. It looks like the PC is still working - it's just that the screen goes black. The little green light on the screen (next to the on/off button) goes red. Is this related to the VCore voltage problem or is it something else? I have taken it in to two different computer repair places and they cant find the problem.

Please help? O, and excuse my eeengleesh...

    After working awhile on CPU the screen freezes so nothing can be done.
    My vcore voltage showsh even worse, when that happens - 2.47-2.48v. Must be 3.3v.
    But in the beginning it shows 3.32v and everything is fine.

    3.3v supply has a thermoload on it , first power up motherboard if you can, One of the plug in pcb's has a 2 pin connector possible labled P14 on it this is a 3.3v sence connection. tell me if you disconnect it does the power supply shut down. Do not re connect this P14 connector with power connected to power supply. Let me know.

System unit or power supply?


The computer power supply may have failed. Do you get the "post beep"?

If not- remove the BIOS battery, move the jumper to "Clear BIOS" . Insert BIOS battery, and try to boot. Put jumper back to normal position and try boot again. If you do not get the post beep, swap power supply for a known good one, and try boot again. If it still does not boot and give you a post beep, look to see if there is a removable BIOS chip- pop it out and put it back in.place, this will clean the terminals. Go through and reset BIOS, as above, and try boot. If the system is functional, it should now boot up, but prompt for you to run the setup program.

If it does not boot, the problem is relating to motherboard/processor.

AMD sempron power supply


Hi,

I would venture that "shows winfast on monitor" indicates the type of Video Card that your PC is using. Thereafter it should go to POST showing the motherboard, BIOS, memory count and others.

Since as you posted, after Winfast nothing follows, I can only suspect that you have a motherboard problem or at least a BIOS corruption.

Please post back the brand and model of your computer or at least what motherboard.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I test voltages on the Enermax Galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000-Watt Power Supply unit out of the computer.


Most motherboards will give tell you all of the voltages being provided by the power supply in the bios under hardware or health monitoring section. Otherwise you will need a multimeter to test the different voltages. You would want to set the multimeter to the 20v or similar setting. Depending on what voltage you would want to test would determine the color of wire you would check. You would connect the black/negative/ground lead of the multimeter to one of the ground wires coming from the power supply normally a black wire. The 12v is normally a yellow wire, the 5v is normally a red wire and the 3.3v is normally an orange wire. The wires may be different colors so you may want to look up the ATX pinouts to find the exact voltages you want to measure.

On the back of this power supply, Theres a red switch with the numbers, 115 and 230. depending on which way it was switched on. Can someone please explain to me what this is?


Hi inforis,
That is a setting that will change the voltages, and you do not want to flip that switch. If you do there is a chance you will fry your computer. Different countries use different voltages. It's cheaper to make a switch & some circuits inside the PSU than make a whole new one. List of countries with frequency & voltage (http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~INTECS/WorldVoltage.htm)
Hope that answers you question well enough.

What is voltage pin layout for the connectors on power supply model dr-b300atx


I assume you are talking of the 20 or 24 pin connector plugging into the Motherboard. Is it 20 or 24? Is there a 4 pin +12v connector plug. The colors of the wires tell a story. Red is +5V Black is Ground or Return. There is Yellow and Orange and Blue and green and gray. There are SATA connections . Look in your users manual of a standard Motherboard. This will give you a pinout and voltages on these pins. Write down the voltage starting with pin 1 and add the color to simplify knowing the voltages. If you're tech savvy, break out a multimeter for absolute certainty.

Hard drive not found in bios.


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

There are three possibilities why your HDD(hard drive) is not showing up. 1. Its already a bad drive (failing HDD mainboard). 2. Loose HDD cable inside your laptop. 3. Bad laptop sata port. Hopefully its just #2 but most of the time its #1. Bring your computer to a technician. They will be able to easily isolate the problem. I hope this helps.

Have a nice day

My hp a345c will not turn on. It has a flashing


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PCbuilder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip andsent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand newchip form them. I will show you my people.

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1.Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then holddown the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in thecapacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3.Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAMsticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if youcan get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticksare damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc.Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, powerup the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6.Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker(20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop(usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or trya different powersupply in the problem computer.

Ifthe Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process ofelimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of theNo-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Takeout one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks indifferent RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get thePC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives,other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If aPOST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name toMotherboard brand name appearing on the screen.

Problem


There is no "Flyback transformer" in the LCD monitor "Benq 17" model No. Q7T3". Such a component, a "Flyback transformer" is found in televisions and in Picture Tube type monitors. The red wire of a "Flyback transformer" is where 27,000 VOLTS comes out of to connect to the picture and such a voltage IS DEADLY so never enter a TV or computer monitor unless you know exactly what you're doing. To bring your hand too close to the "Flyback transformer" is to GET ZAPPED, you don't even have to TOUCH that transformer or the Red Wire that comes out of it!!!!

As far as a fuse blowing, NEVER PUT IN A FUSE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE RATING: it's there to protect certain components from being permanently damaged. If the fuse is blowing you must find out "why". There's got to be a short circuit in one or more components. Transistors, Diodes and Capacitors are easy to check for shorts. Transistors, Diodes are usually what short out. There's not much more I can say here.

A schematic diagram that shows the voltage on the many components of a running LCD circuit is what you need to find out where volatges should be. If a voltage is missing you must find out where the problem stems from. There are other ways to test circuitry, with an oscillascope and a schematic diagram that shows test points and the wave pattern that's suppose to be present.
