Question about ASUS P4SP-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot up ishue

Hello, I have a problem and hoping to solve it with your advice.
My pc started to giving me trouble a month ago-always when I tried to restart, it want do it and it was giving me bios erorr beeps (1 long and 2 short). In manual I find out that is video adapter related erorr. Well, only way to start normaly my pc I needed to shout it down completly and leave it be for some 30 minutes. When I started it again in bios was a message - during your last boot up your system hung for inpropriate cpu speed.
I was tring to reset my bios setting to default but it didnt helped, as soon as I restart the same problem with the beep codes occured.
In time it got worse, and pc neded more and more time to be left powerless to succesfully start again. Finaly, i could not even get him start because the beeps started even if I left it be and even start it on botun.
I replaced the motherboard battery, checked monitor, all cables, memory,conections inside and all works fine.
Now I am wandering what could be the problem: cpu, motherboard or psu.
I got p4sp-mx motherboard with onboard grafic SIS 651, intel celeron 1.7 processor.
Some guys on net forums told me they suspect that psu is gone.
I hope you allredy incounter problem like this and will help me.
Cheers!

    I tried running it without a cover and fans worked but beeps kept going on. So its got to be PSU. Thank you for your time, cheers!!!

From the sound of it, the PSU is going. The long cool down time would indicate to me that is a rather large component that is not exposed to very much airflow. To help isolate this, you might want to try running the system with the cover off. If the problem stays about the same, I'd say it's the PSU. Check all the fans while you're at it.

Internal power error


Dear user,

Please elaborate more, if your laptop is new, do not try solving such issues on your own , take the dell showroom to task :) dell gives full replacement warranty if it is applicable in the country you life and you have opted for it while buying

if your laptop is old, try removing the battery, use the pc on AC adapter for some time maybe even a day and try the battery next day. if it does not work you need to give both of them to the service station for a check.

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Battery Not Identified.


hello

I suggest you a few steps to solve your problem.
  • remove the charger and press the power button till all residue power is radiated.
  • then connect the charger and charge the battery fully and try booting the system.
  • if this don't work check the output of your charger and see if it is working fine.
  • if it is working fine then remove the battery and connect the charger and try starting the system.
  • if it works then there are two things possible.
  1. battery gone.
  2. IC responsible for charging is gone.
i hope you can figure out the problem through this.

Thank you

My hp pavilion


Hi,
No, that's a very nice machine. Sounds like software trouble. Can you backup all your files and restore from the recovery p[artition? That would be the easiest.
Good luck
