Asus power supply problems

Hiya, thanks for the follow up.
Nope initial 'boot up' screen opens up as normal, then windows (XP) screen starts and then the machine dies...
The first time i thought all was ok.. sigh..

Am i right in assuming the new 650w supply should not make a difference? as the original was only 350w. It should just provide more capacity i think and not affect the boot up of the CPU.?

    hiya, thanks, Just out of curiosity on the overclocking point. how hot would be 'normal' for the CPU to run? (tis pentium). It is not doing anything clever besides running 16 cctv cameras and saving images on a HHD.? warm enough to touch? or too hot to touch?



    I'll recheck the connections you suggest but my (slow) progress is that it now boots up 'normally' and lasts about 5 minutes before switching itself off again.mutter. I then have to wait about 2 minutes before it will switch on again.

It sounds to me like the power is being distributed incorrectly go into your bios and go to "restore defaults" or "return to defaults" something along those lines.

I do a descent amount of over clocking and that is a sign of too much/too little voltage reaching hardware hopefully my suggestion helps out

    Ok did you make certain that the power supply is connected to the Mother Board correctly?



    Assure all peripherals have power



    Mains power is connected and the 4-pin ATX12V connector if applicable

  • Curtis Tuendemann Jan 08, 2009

    Overclocking is an advanced user technique and has to be applied by the computer owner so don't worry about that



    DO NOT touch the cpu you will get a nasty burn as they generally sit around the 60-70 degree celcius mark I do however suggest making sure there is good air flow to around your computer and that the fans are clean





    On a side note thankyou very much for the rating it is good to see people not just taking the information and running;

Replaced power supply, now it wont boot


The windows file system has nothing to do with the new power supply. Possibly yes however that the windows registry was damaged before you replaced the power supply due to an abrupt switching off operation which may have damaged the boot sector within your HDD. The solution is as recommended by windows. You can use the windows setup CD to get this fixed. I suggest you run a chkdsk /r at some point during the repair when you get the command prompt C>. Check the following for further info.

Infected pc boots up intermittently


Microsoft does not "shut down" computers. If the PC is not booting every time it is because of the viruses or the power supply. If you press the power button and nothing happens I suspect the power supply. If you see the start-up screen every time you press the power button, but the computer does not finish booting go ahead and install your legal copy of Windows and that will fix the problem. Make sure you have the drivers for your motherboard, you'll need them to install things like chipset, nic, video, and sound drivers.

Repair start up failure


Well it depends on how severe is your start up problem, if the OS still loads lets say on Windows XP more or less you just have to repair the boot.ini, if you have your Windows XP CD load it to your computer(make sure that on the BIOS setup the intial boot devce must be your CD ROM) When the initialization finished press R to open the command prompt the type the following;

bootcfg /rebuild
The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.

The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.

The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.

The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.

Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Emachine T2682 boots then dies


Nope, if the fan on any of the equipment stops, then its a power problem. Hightly suspect the motherboard is at fault loading down the power supply and even possibly burning out the power supply. I've seen it happen to many times.

Error - The Hard Disk Was Not Found


Boot into the BIOS, I think you hit the Delete key on Dell's to get into the BIOS, but I'm not sure. You should see some type of message at boot that says "To enter setup press XXX" Where XXX is the Delete key or some other key.

Once you're in the BIOS setup see if your HDD is listed. You may also find the option to reset the BIOS to default. Generally speaking this will not hurt anything and may be worth a try.

No Power to PC


When your pc starts to boot up do you get two beeps one then another, although not two together, if not and only one beep occurs this could mean a memory problem, two beeps together normally a cmos bios problem.(Only part you've not changed was your ram) Do you get as far as the bios screen?, if so look for a line in advanced cmos settings, saying 'halt on all errors' dissable this and sometimes on boot up the problem will show itself in the initial dos screen. Keep diggin.
