Re: computer wont turn on trys to but keeps restarting ...
83 - 96 - 9E (for a **** second)-9F on the post code definition display on the mobo. When it hits 9E it has shutdown and reads 9F when totally powered off. I have read on other newsgroups that the power supply might be at fault
I took this from an overclocking forum, I hope it helps

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.
Here is a list of beep codes: Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards
No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
One beep - board is working fine
One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).
I still did not find beep code that match your problem..
Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too. 1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem. 2. 1beep - board is working fine. 3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing. 4. 1short beep - system boots normally 5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error. 6. 1long 1short beep - dram error 7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected 8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error. 9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error 10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected 11. Short beep - power supply error 12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.
The 3-beep code (probably 1 long then 2 short beeps) means a memory problem. Take the RAM modules out of their sockets, gently clean off their contact fingers with a pencil eraser, and plug them back in. Make sure they're firmly seated and latch into place. Try restarting the computer.
If you still have the beep code, try to borrow a known good RAM module of the same type for testing. It doesn't need to be the same size (in MB), but close in speed. This will let you determine if the motherboard itself is bad.
If you don't have a known good module for testing and there's more than one module installed, take them out again. Reinstall one and try restarting the computer, and repeat for each module. This allows you to check each one separately to determine which is causing the problem. (This is where a good piece for testing is handy. I've been stung several times by all the memory being bad, and thinking it was the motherboard. Now I always keep some good memory for testing.)
remove ur power supply socket from the mother board short the pin green and black in the connector if the smps start no problen with the power supply then the problems lies with ur mother board wiring or fault in your mother board if your mother board has secondry power fix it correctly to mother board sock et with has 4 pin if its not working cousult a chiplel engineer the fault lies in the power supply of the motherboard
