Question about Abit IS7 Motherboard
Lately my home-built computer has been not starting up intermittently regardless of how many times I press the power button. The problem has been getting worse. The first few times it happened, I just kept pressing the power button and eventually it would come on. The other day I had to open up the case, cleared out some dust and voila, it powered up. Today I wake up and have been dusting it even more and nothing. Eventually it powered on. So I powered it down to put the case back together and prop it back up in the correct position and bam... it won't power up again. I don't have any other comps. I think I've got all the dust out of it. Not sure what to do now. Any ideas? Thanks kindly for any suggestions
I doubt it?s the dust causing your problem, more that likely you?re either: - brushing against a defective cable/component with an intermittent short OR - you have a failing component, sometimes it works, sometimes not. I would take a look at the following: -Check your power switch, it could be failing. Put a multi-meter on the two leads and watch what happens when you pre the button several times. -Check all your interior connections including cards, memory and processor. Also check to ensure your system board is grounded correctly. -Try swapping out your power supply. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
