Boot up problem

What might be the reason for my PCs inability to boot up. The power comes on alright but it does not boot to load files and so nothing comes onto the monitor. I've tried so many means but still.
Initially, it will eventually boot up if you leave it on for a long time for it to get heated up. But now, it will never boot up even if you left it idle for the whole day or night.
I am using the Intel PIV D845PEBT2 mother board. Please I will be someone could kindly help me out.

There could be a number of things wrong here are a few things you can try if you are confident in your ability inside the computer case.

Reset the ram

Double check the CPU cooler and make sure that it is in the correct position

Double check the CPU coolers power connection to the three or four pin power connection

use Canned air duster and clean any dust out( be sure not ot let the fans spin freely while blowing)

If confident reapply thermal paste and thoroughly clean off older paste(any residue may affect cooling performance)

    If you are not confident in the computer case this limits what i suggest you do.

    To reset the ram, First locate it usually it is positioned right of the cpu there are usually 4 slots and they have clips at each end. on these clips push down on them on each side and it should pop the ram out. Make sure you remember the oriantation of the ram. pull the ram out and re-seat it by pushing on the top end and the bottom end until it clicks back into place. repeat this for how ever many Sticks of ram you have.

    To check you Cpu coolers power conector locate the cooler usally a series of aluminium fins with a fan ontop once you hace located this there should be a insulated wire conected to the fan follow it to where it connects to the motherboard. Once you have found it make sure it is plugged in all the way.


    You can pick up Canned air at any computer or electronic store even wal-mart.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

I have GA-8iD533 motherboard. One of my friend tried to flushing the bios, but during the flushing the electricity was gone. After the electricity come i power on the computer,now it shows nothing and i...


To recover your motherboard bios and bring it back to life, you will need this following things:

1. Floppy Drive: It is needed to load the Boot Disk and the new BIOS update.
2. Boot Floppy: It is needed to load the basic operating system, preferably MS DOS.
3. ISA Video Card: Optional, but can simply the recovery process.

Notes:
A startup disk can be automatically built from the Add/Remove Programs applet within the control panel. The boot disk is a vital part of this guide, though users with WinNT/2K will need to build this boot disk from a system running MS-DOS or Win9x/ME.

You can obtain it also from this website: www.Bootdisk.com

Be sure to copy all needed BIOS utilities and update/backup files used during the original flash process to this disk as well.

After making the boot disk, delete the config.sys and autoexec.bat in the boot disk. It can be found in the disk primary directory path.

Create your own autoexec,bat. Using a notepad, build the autoexec.bat file by putting all the command lines in flashing a BIOS.

The approach for using flash utility from AMI or Phoenix is similar, but be sure to read the provided help information about each command line option before building the autoexec.bat entry. Create the text command entry, and then save to the file "autoexec.bat" in drive A: . This will load the command at floppy boot time, regardless of whether an ISA video card is available.

Intel Desktop D845PEBT2 could not boot up


Hi,

i,d suggest that the power cut may have been a surge or spike.

This May have blown your power pack, and caused possible motherboard Damage.

** Did you use the same lead for the PSU** and have you checked the (main fuse in the Plug ? )
If the monitor light remains orange, this is a possible graphics card fault, or driver that is not allowing the monitor to come out of standby mode. You could try installing a different graphics card, or swapping the monitor cable to the on-board graphics card if it has 1.
If none of the above works, assume the motherboard has suffered damage.

Mike @ Compurepair.

MY PC HAS BOOTING PROBLEM


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;
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=899&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21#SAP

Good luck bridey28!

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...


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.
