You could have had a corrupted update. Do you have the CD that came with the computer? There is a BIOS restore utility on it. Download the 1st BIOS version from the website and see if you get the same results.

Shuttle SG41J1 Plus V2 won't POST

Hi Sam,
Don't ever get frustrated by a Shuttle, ahum, they're marvelous, but just "a little" strange behavior ... they are very sensible to the cell-battery; if the voltage drops below 1 volt... i have been ripping my hair out in the beginning of my Shuttle period... as said they just don't boot... get a multimeter, carefully get the cell battery (ya know, the little round zilver one on the motherboard, check the voltage and replace if V < 2V. If the cell battery has not taken out completely... we always take the cell bat. out to avoid discharging when keeping it in the box for a longer time.
So first check if there is one in at all...
!!! whatever you do inside your baby, get yourself grounded !!! a static voltage can destroy the little bagger...
--- Then you should check the jumper of bios reset. Could be it is in position "I" this should be changed to cover the "0", its very clearly described in the manual you can download @ <a href>
</a href>
download the manual and try to read it careful where the bios is described.
in 2nd stage it could be the memory, which is not inserted correctly, meaning not seated well. ( no offense, but it happened to me too... ;-)
Shuttles are different to handle...
- Also check, what speed the DDR stiks are... and also, if they are supported by the board.
- Check if you per error got some ECC mem stiks, they would not run. I remember going through such a case too...
as said, check if the compatibily book says if the mem-sticks you own are compatible.
- Then check if some wire is loose from the mobo to the disc, DVD evtl.
-- Check the wires from the front contacts to the mobo... maybe loose contact...
--- Last i would set the BIOS reset jumper to empty BIOS position , leave it there for approx a minute or 10... and if that does not help, check if maybe a addon VGA card inside is not well seated. or some other addoncard.

and lastly there can be some problems in the hdd itself, cables to discs, short-circuit on the underside of mobo or at the outerlast the thingy is broken and yore doomed to try to get your bucks back...
Hope i could be of any help mon ami
If not, just come back and write what happened, all volks here are glad to help,

When i replace and upgrade my ecs p4vmm2 ram up to 1gb..first it enter os but when i restarting im stuck with checking nvram" done with re installing the usb wire,reseting cmos..unplugging...

Sounds as though your new RAM may not be compatible with the ECS.This is most certainly the case if the system boots correctly with the old RAM back in place.You may need to check the specs for this mobo on the EliteGroup website to find out what RAM is compatible.

Bios ROM checksum error (Compaq SR5237CL with M2N68-LA MB)

A BIOS checksum error can be caused by a nearly flat BIOS battery.
I would replace the BIOS battery first before attempting to upgrading the BIOS.
Some motherboard BIOS firmware is upgraded by running a program that has been copy to a DOS boot disk or the upgrage maybe done from within the BIOS setup. These firmware upgrage and instructions are on the motherboard WEB site, in your case the Compaq/HP WEB site. Make sure you select the upgrade for your model motherboard.
NOTE it is possible that if you make a mistake you could ruin your motherboard, if you are not sure seek help from a computer savy friend.

Firmware has detected cmos battery failure even after changing the battery

If you have basic knowledge with electronics or that you know the basic shapes of electronic parts, look for a busted electrolytic capacitor on your may look bloated or discolored. It can be found near the coin battery. Ask for an expert electronic technician to replace it. If it is still under warranty, have your mobo replaced with a new one.
If your mobo has its circuitry doing fine, you will need to update your BIOS software. Have someone assist you on this especially those who are computer engineers.

Booting problem

Do you know how to get into the BIOS setup? You can set it up for default in the BIOS settings. If it isn't saving them after restarting your computer, you should replace the battery to the motherboard.

Reset bios

Yes. Look for the battery on the motherboard. Pull it out. Wait 30 seconds and put it back in. Your BIOS will be reset back to factory settings.

Check for faulty caps on your mobo or power supply. They probably gone dry/leaky..
