Question about Motherboards

MY PC HAS BOOTING PROBLEM

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.

    Sounds like you could have corrupt bios. You should go on another pc go to manufacturer website get bios update and then flash the bios using instructions provided. Even if it is the same version as the one installed. But I recommend a newer one if available.

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.

You'll need this link to download the bios file;

Good luck bridey28!
Need more info, post here.

P4c800-e gives error bios not loaded


this motherboard is supposed to have crash free BIOS an overclocking ability and power loss restart

is it happening on boot up the drivers have not been loaded or might not be detecting a bootable device the first things to check are the leads motherboard to your hard drive make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up also the same with computer ram and cmos battery and make sure the sockets are cleanThis message is generated by computers with SCSI / RAID controllers when no bootable drive is detected on the controller. This is not an error message unless you have a bootable drive on the SCSI / RAID or you are wanting to use a SCSI or RAID drive. If you are not using a SCSI or RAID drive and your computer has onboard a SCSI or RAID controller, this message can be disabled by entering the computer CMOS Set up and disabling the onboard SCSI or RAID During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup Press and hold delete 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 If your computer is unable to boot or you wish to restore the BIOS back to bootable settings and your computer uses an ACER BIOS, press and hold the F10 key as you turn on the computer. While continuing to hold the F10 key, you should hear two beeps indicating that the settings have been restored. AMI BIOS Older AMI BIOS could be restored back to bootable settings by pressing and holding the Insert key as the computer is booting.
BIOS / CMOS diskettes

Early 486, 386, and 286 computers may have required a floppy disk in order to enter the BIOS setup. These diskettes are known as ICU, BBU, and SCU disks. Because these diskettes are unique to your computer manufacturer, you must obtain the diskettes from them. See the computer manufacturers list for contact information. Early IBM computers Some models of early IBM computers required that the user press and hold both mouse buttons as the computer was booting in order to enter the BIOS setup.

Other suggestions
Finally, if none of the above suggestions help get you into your CMOS setup you can cause a stuck key error, which will usually cause the CMOS setup prompt to appear and remain until you press a key to continue. To do this press and hold any key on the keyboard and do not let go (you may get several beeps as you're doing this). Keep holding the key until the computer stops booting and you're prompted with an option to enter setup or to press another key to continue booting.
hope this helps

How can i set first boot drive on an IBM PC, model is FRU PN 02R4087


Hi van Carlisle,

you will have to go into BIOS during the startup, I am not familiar with the FRU PN 02R4087 but the process is more or less the same for all PCs.
When you start your PC watch the screen carefully, at one point there will come a text similar to "to enter setup press Delete" usually it is either the Delete key or F2 or F10... watch your screen to find out which key is for the setup on your computer. you may have to start many times over before you get everything.

Once you have entered BIOS you will have to look for a page that contains an entry like "First Boot Device" or something similar. it should be set to HHD1 or CDROM or Disk... then follow the directions on how to change this value to what ever it is that you wish. Be Aware that there are other options in BIOS that in changing them you can quite possibly damage your computer, so do not change anything else unless you know what you are doing.

I hope I was able to help you on this.

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.

You need to clear cmos usually on board is a little coloured jumper,but also first disconnect power plugs from board which come from the big psu,normally have a little clip you have to squeeze,find cmos normally 3 pins with a littl jumper move it from one set of pins to next set of 2 pins,you normally have i pin exposed,so move left or right and hold for 10 seconds make sur e you put back as it was,reconnect psu plugs ,reboot enter the bios normally Delete button or what it says on your screen normally setup button ,reset your time and date and make sure you save your settings before you leave bios page

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.

Windows booting problem


hi sunnyh, when you start up the PC start pressing the F8 key every 2 seconds. A dos like window will load. At the bottom of the list choose, last known good configuration. (win might load the last good configuration) it's worth the try.
If your PC still does not load windows than repeat the above, this time choose, Disable automatic restart on system failure.
This also might allow windows to load (hopefully).
A system that starts going into this restart loop happens for many different reasons. Most common reason was a program that was last installed just before PC was restarted. Second most common reason for restart loop. Added new hardware, bios changes & windows boot files corrupted. If you did install a program, uninstall it. If you were in your bios & made changes, reset the bios. If you flashed the bios, go back to the old bios version. If you added new hardware replace with older hardware.
To fix Windows you may have to reinstall it. Do not run format or you will loose all your data. Even system restore CD's allow for a win reinstall without a format, however if the cd does not allow you to reinstall win unless you do a format. Than windows startup files are too screwed up & you'll have no choice but to format.

All you can do is try the above & cross your fingers.

Good luck!
