Question about Intel D945GNT Motherboard

1 Answer

My computer just won't restart--I thought the switch had failed, so I just put the wires together for the momentary start button function, but no go. I can't think what else to check--I already put a new power supply in.

    I believe all the connectors are plugged in--there is just no way to even get the power supply started. I have way too much computer experience, and I have never run into this before.

    have you connected all the psu connectors to the m/board? some have to have a 4pin psu connector inserted( pentium4`s) and is it not starting up or restarting?

Have you tried clearing the cmos memory? but put the jumper back to the correct position and the battery is not dead, then i would dissconnect everything so it would be left with psu plugged in to the m/board, cpu/fan,pwr switch nothing else except a speaker unless it has one built-in, you should hear some beeping from the speaker when you turn-on if not it`s dead R.I.P.

Blu-ray player keeps turning on and off every few seconds

If constantly on/off and it has a manual button on the unit, it may be the tiny push switch behind it doing this.

Only way to prove this is get at that and remove it. If then works normally with a remote do not put the switch back.

The switch (not the plastic button that activates it) can and do fail in this way---its a momentary switch which means it should when released stop itc function--they do fail in all kinds of equipment and usually if do so the remote will not stop them because the front controls have priority over the remote

Presario SR 1055CL will not turn on I believe its the on off switch

If the computer started giving you trouble turning on before it failed, it is probably the power supply and not the switch itself. To check, you will need to take the computer case off. There are usually 2 power switches on a pc. The first one disconnects the incoming line voltage completely. Make sure this switch is on before you try the other power switch. The second power switch actually starts the computer. The power disconnect switch is a toggle (or latch), that is, it retains its position. The switch that actually starts your pc is a momentary contact switch. To test the momentary start switch, you will need to take the cover off. Be careful not to damage anything and watch out for exposed voltages. If you pay attention, it is not dangerous. All you need to do is short the 2 wires that go to the case switch momentarily. Once shorted, the motherboard latches on until a power failure or shutdown. Note that you do not want to keep the 2 switch wires shorted, since this will prevent the pc from booting. Just short them for about as long as you normally push the power button in. If the switch is bad, they are not usually difficult to replace. You should be able to find a part number on the switch, as well as manufacturer. While it seems like all the case switches are custom per model, they are not. The actual switch itself is actuated by a plastic button on the case.

The power switch has broken to my k7sem motherboard. Can I jump the pins to get it to work? Do I need all the switch and led leads on as well? I just need to fire up for a breif time.

if the power button has broken, for an emergency fix you can cut the cables and touch them together with-out a problem, just touch them mind you, dont twist them together or anything (it is a momentary switch) just make sure they dont touch the casing anywhere.

The timer was a little tough to get started sometimes, I'd have to pull the knob out and push it back in several times before it would start.

The start switch is going out. You will have to replace the whole timer on this model. Check the first 2 numbers of your serial number if it is 10 - 15 the part number is 33002855 if the first 2 numbers are 16 or greater the part number is 33002803. Please rate me after reading.

C above middle C won't play

If the key itself is hard to move, you need to find out why. Is the momentary contact switch under the key non-functional?
The Momentary Contact Switch is a lot like that used on a computer keyboard, or a computer mouse.

A metal, or plastic case that surrounds an upside down T shaped plastic piece, which pushes down on a thin spring metal 'diaphragm'. The 'diaphragm' is convex shaped, and the curvature goes up.

In the center at the bottom of this switch, is a contact. The metal diaphragm connects to one side of the circuit, and the contact at the bottom connects to the other side of the circuit.

As the metal diaphragm is flattened, and touches the center contact, the circuit is complete.
The convex shaped metal diaphragm then curves back up, (Because it is spring metal), and breaks the circuit, as your finger comes off of the key.
This makes it a Momentary Contact switch.

When the circuit is complete, electricity goes to electronic components, that make That particular sound. (Note)

Perhaps, parts inside that momentary contact switch are broken. They moved at first allowing you to use this switch, but with extra force. Finally the switch broke completely, and is non-functional now.

If the sound itself is diminishing, it is a Capacitor which is the problem. (Electronic keyboard) Just thought I would add this.

From my own knowledge bank.

Color of wire from start key switch to solenoid

Fords use under hood mounted starter relays. They look like a mine withe 2 large threaded posts abd two small threaded posts. Ignore the two large cable posts. If only one small post has a wire on it, remove wire and try to start engine. If no crank, put back on and try cranking. If it cranks then that is the wire you will put juice to with the other side of the in hand momentary button" connectected to the hot big past. Battery cable big post. Note! momentary button only. be safe, you will be too far from the brakes. Always block wheels. set parking brake. make sure trans is in neutral or in park Do not use remote starter while standing in front of the vehicle or while under the vehicle.
