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.
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/5519/ENG/BIOS%20Update%20Readme.pdf

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

Good luck bridey28!
Need more info, post here.

I have IBM P3 and i want to change win xp but its not booting pliz help me and it doen't give me option of booting


Turn the computer on. Keep your eyes glued to the bottom of the monitor screen. This usually comes by fast, so keep your eyes peeled.

When the computer manufacturer logo screen comes up, look for the -> enter CMOS Setup, or enter BIOS Setup, <- key to press.

Write it down.
If Windows loads on your computer, allow it to load, and run for a few minutes.
Turn the computer off normally.
WAIT 20 seconds, or so; then turn the computer back on.

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key. (Or enter CMOS key)
Tap in 2 second intervals.

If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

Once you get into BIOS. look for Boot Options.
In Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.

REMEMBER, you have to Save Changes, or it will be like you have done nothing at all.

Boot with press f1


to do a format you must boot the pc with the disc in the drive, and set pc to boot from dvd, in boot options, then when it comes to install options press options and format, this will do a wipe/format and you should be ok from then.

When device is getting on device is hanging in windows mobile version screen


If its not booting up correctly you can either clean boot the device or reflash the firmware. Note this will return trh device to its default state and loose any information stored on the device.

Clean Booting the CN50

If the CN50 seems to be locked up, try warm booting and then cold booting the computer. If neither method works, use a clean boot to get the computer up and running for further troubleshooting. When you clean boot, the CN50 only loads files and applications that are absolutely required by the operating system. A clean boot returns the CN50 to an "out of the box" or factory default state, so that you can run diagnostic tests to troubleshoot the normal boot processes:

To clean boot the computer using the mobile computer:

1 Remove the battery pack from the back of the CN50.

2 Reinsert the battery pack and press the Power button.

3 When the CN50 starts the boot process, simultaneously press <and > until the IPL Boot Configuration Menu appears on the screen.

4 Press 2 to select Force Clean Boot and then press 0 to select


Continue with Boot.

The CN50 executes the clean boot. This process takes a few minutes


The clean boot process erases the CN50 memory, including all applications and data files in the object store. To preserve applications through a clean boot, store them in the Flash File Store.

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.

Hi, not sure exactly what you are describing here; you are I believe using dual operating systems? There does seem to be a conflick, causing niether operating sytems to bootup correctly. I will give you the procedure to delete and install one operating system, if this is not what you wish, can you come back to me?
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing ESC button, or delete in some machines. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall of operating system will commence automatically (do not select boot from CD here).

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.
