Well first of all when you say "my cou wont start up" I assume that you're talking about your "computer". Secondly if it is your computer that is having the problem, and it's not booting up, it could be a couple of things. First I would try checking to see if the CMOS battery is dead, the CMOS battery is a silver, flat, round like object usually looks like a watch battery, you may want to replace that. If problem still persists, then you could have a bad power-supply. Take it to a reputable PC repair shop, and have them test the power-supply. My ultimate guess is that it's the power supply that is bad.

This motherboard is strange in that when the CMOS battery dies, it wont POST and wont have video output. Just replace the CMOS battery and it should work again. And also set the new date+time.

Overclocked my cpu and now the computer wont turn on how to i fix this


Well, I'd suggest going into the BIOS and resetting everything to default. You must always be cautious when overclocking. If you set it too high, you may fry the CPU and maybe the motherboard. If you cannot reset the BIOS because the computer just won't even turn on, I'd suggest taking out the CMOS battery for 30 seconds. There also is a jumper on the motherboard (check your "clear CMOS" directions in the documentation) to clear the memory. You should then be OK

PC want start after replacing memory card



Hello


1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.

2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.

3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.

3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.

Hope that this helps :)

My motherboard BIOS is not starting


look for the CLRCMOS or CLR or JBAT1 terminals. These are the cmos settings and may need to be cleared, so refer to your motherboard manual for which one you have. Although what has probably happened is that when the PSU blew it may well have shorted the cmos chip which cannot be repaired, or damaged the graphics.
