Easiest way is to reset the cmos jumpers on the motherboard. This will reset the bios to its original state and language.

    Quite easy:) do you have the motherboard manual? There are two ways of doing it. One is the 1st method I mentioned, the second is to just remove the silver round battery for around 10 seconds on the motherboard. Make sure you PCis of first.

    Please remember to rate my soloutions :)

    y = x you say? this is the french layout! You can do this in windows by going to the control panel and regional settings, you can then change the language back to english

My computer will not boot up,mother board problem?

could be a mother board problem but before you replace it try a few things first

remove the memory and try to boot
unplug all hard drives apart from master and try to boot
go into the bios and load default settings rty to boot

when you mean doesnt boot do you get the welcome screen ? says windows xp etc

if so then its a windows issue and you need to reinstall windows

if after trying all of this the yes maybe its a mother board issue

hope this helps

I have a sony vaio pc with a p 450-vx mother board, the darn thing won't boot up the mother board light is on and the fans come on light on front is amber. Oh yeah I,ve changed out video cards.

if the screen comes on for a few seconds and then goes to sleep mode you probably have not installed the drivers for the new video card correctly. you should shut down computer, replace the new card with the old one, put in the disk with the drivers for the new card, install the new drivers and then shutdn and replace the old with the new and reboot. this should solve the problem. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions..

Laptop screen is black

this sounds like your video card and it controls visual functions..have you tried booting direct to the hard drive and bypass the CD? if this does not work looks like its tech time or if you are tech savy and know if your video graphics or GPU is integrated or is separate from the mother board you might be able to get and repair the part yourself...usually they give some indication of getting ready to die when functioning normal screen will fade to white and force you to reboot..this happens on separate GPU systems ...integrated can just wipe out and not reboot..reset your memory sticks as a last ditch effort...If you are uncertain you can look the specs up by googling your model # on any smart phone Good luck GOD BLESS

EMachines T1840 mother board crash

You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.

Asus k8s mx mother board problem

To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS.
Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE.
Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.

One of the greatest factor in intermittent shutdowns is because of heat issues. try to check the fans if they are all spinning. if all fan's are ok then you only need to replace the motherboard. here's a manual that might come in handy

Hope this helps.
