Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My PC does not boot when I press the power button on. The power comes alright but it will not boot and load files unless I leave it on for a long time and later reboot it again. This has been the problem for sometime now and I decided to take it that, the Intel Mother Board Intel D845PEBT2 needs to get heated up before it finally boots. I wish to bring this issue to your notice so you can help me out. Another issue is that, it always reports a system date change(Problem with the C MOS date after it finally boots (thus during the booting up process). A computer technician in my area advised that I should change the CMOS battery, I inserted a new CMOS battery but the problem remains the same. Please help me.

On the main screen nothing else shows up but the backup ground picture . nothing else will show up . what can i do


Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del. If it isn't completely frozen, it should bring up the task manager. Open file -> new task (run). Type "explorer.exe" without the quotes and press enter. This should open the task bar.

If that doesn't work, hold the power button for 10 seconds to do a hard reboot and see if it boots past that the next time you load. If not hold the power button for another 10 seconds and press F8 while the computer is booting up to enter safe mode. If you can get into safe mode, use a restore point to go back to a date when it was working.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

There could be a number of things wrong here are a few things you can try if you are confident in your ability inside the computer case.

Reset the ram

Double check the CPU cooler and make sure that it is in the correct position

Double check the CPU coolers power connection to the three or four pin power connection

use Canned air duster and clean any dust out( be sure not ot let the fans spin freely while blowing)

If confident reapply thermal paste and thoroughly clean off older paste(any residue may affect cooling performance)

MY PC HAS BOOTING PROBLEM


Hi bridey28, when you replaced the cmos battery & the bios did not maintain the correct time than the cmos is not at fault. More likely its your power supply. The cmos receives its power (Recharge) from the power supply. An average cmos battery should last for 5 years. The fact that you attempt to power up the PC & you have to wait, points to a power supply problem. Not a bios problem.
Bios corruption is rare, unless you have tried to flash the bios & it failed. Replace the power supply before attempting flashing the bios. Every manufacture warns against flashing the bios. Only flash the bios if your 100% sure that it will correct a bios malfunction. If the issue presist after replacing the power supply, Intel has instructions of (How to flash the bios) on their site.
Here are the instruction from Intel for your MB model number.
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/5519/ENG/BIOS%20Update%20Readme.pdf

You'll need this link to download the bios file;
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=899&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21#SAP

Good luck bridey28!

My Computer Does Not Boot


If your system is still not holding the date and time after changing out the CMOS battery, then ther is what is called a "cold" solder joint on the motherboard thjat might work, as you mentioned, after the system is warm.
However, sicne the system does boot up and operate later, it is more likely that the power supply has the issue and is not delivering power properly until it stabalizes.
Get a replacement PS, just make sure that it has at least the same wattage as the original one. You don't even have to physically install it at first, just swtich all the connections from the old one to the new one and see if the system comes up right away. It is does, then do the swap. If not, you can return it and replace the motherboard.

Won't turn on when I press the front button


This sounds like your power supply; it's the part that the power cord plugs into that converts the power to dc and powers your motherboard, drives, and everything else inside your computer. You can pick one up for around $30 online or $80 at a retail store.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
