It sounds like an overheating problem. The newer cpu's have a thermal shutdown sensor that automatically shuts down system if it senses a temp that is too high. Common solution would be to check your cpu/ chassis fan and see if they are working. If not replace.

System doesn't get on after shut down


Check the system BIOS. I know that in certain HP systems you can disable the power button so that it doesnt do anything. It's to stop the system being accidently shut down

Dell PowerEdge 2300 Server won't boot


To power off using the power button, press and hold in for more than four seconds.

However this is not solving your problem of not booting, needs some more information. Such as Beeping noises, number and length of beeps. Or any LED.s flashing?

Netfinity 5000 bios password unknown - I got a IBM Netfinity 5000 for free from my schoo and they had a BIOS/Admin password set. The school hasn't used these computers for a long time so no one knows...


****. IBM just wants your money. In most cases, the bios password can be disabled by removing the CMOS battery. Remove the CMOS, pull out the power cord, and hold the power button for 10 seconds to drain any residual charge. Boot the computer without the CMOS and it should say password disabled. Turn it off, unplug it, and slap it back together. You should be fine. Let me know how it goes.

Ibm xseries 226 is not initializing.. the fans start when i power onn the system but not more than 5-10 seconds.. and there is no display.. there is only one processor on board right now. pls help


If you are comfortable getting inside the PC here's some things you can try.
  1. Take the side panel off and pull the memory sticks out. Now turn the PC on without the sticks in it and listen for a screaming banshie. If you hear the screaming banshie it means *********** board should be okay. If you hear no noise at all there you may have a bad mother board. 6df7c5d.jpg
  2. While inside the PC unplug all cables for about 10 seconds and plug them back in. Do this one at a time so you don't loose track of where they go. Also carefully pull the processor out and plug them back in. Turn PC back on and test. 3513f7b.jpg
  3. Unplug the power supply from the mother board and plug it onto power socket by itself without having anything connected to it and see if it runs okay on it's own. If not it's probably bad.
  4. Last but not least If you know how to boot the PC into the BIOS configuration do so and check what temperature the PC is set to shut down at.

Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck

I'm truing to install a new hard drive with my OS 10.3


Well, first of all, you should reset the CMOS by unplugging the power cord from the computer, then take the battery out, which should be easy to spot. Put it back in after about 10 seconds and plug the power cord in as well.

Now, turn on the computer, and see if you might see any thing, other than a black screen or no signal message.

If you don't see anything, it's possible that the motherboard has been damaged.

If you see something, then goes back the no signal, then your motherboard might be working.

Will not power on


Sounds like a power supply is failing. Swap it out with a known good one or use a power supply load tester while you're turning it on.
