Question about Motherboards

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.

When booting up the devise, only the GPX logo appears. seems stuck and won't shut down unless i remove the battery. switch to off position does not work. I can load and delete mp3 files from the computer...


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or you might try
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps

I power on the PC, up comes the following, "ASUS Nother Board. Press DEL to run set up. Press TAB to display bios post message". I press both nothing happens. I turn the PC on and off several times but...


This means that there is some setting in the BIOS that is set to display the POST results on being asked. Not automatically. So, what you do is to enter BIOS and there look for POST (power on self test) results to be displayed or not. Set it to auto display. Or no POST. then this problem will stop bothering you. POST is a test that al computers carryout before booting to see if all systems are working alright.

Boot up problem


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;

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.

This is not too uncommon scorcher63.
From what you stated, when windows does start it only goes so far & than re-starts it's self, like loading in a loop. Than at times it loads the start up options.
For reasons unknown, your windows (startup files) are corrupted. Easyest way to fix this is. Put you windows CD in the cdrom, shut down the system. Start the PC & press the F8 key every 2 seconds. A boot menue will load. Use the up & down arror keys & choose the cdrom drive. You will see (to boot from cd press any key), press the space bar. The cdrom will startup. Windows will start to load. You want to repair windows. This option will re-install windows but will leave most of your personal data alone. Like My Documents your username. Some programs "may" need to be re-installed. After installation is complete remove the windows cd & shut off the PC. Start the Pc, windows should load. Run Windows Update. If you have a antivirus program please do a full system scan. Run windows Defrag program.
scorcher63, if you have more question just post them here.
