Question about EliteGroup NFORCE 570 SLIT-A Motherboard

1 Answer

The system boots up the moment power and becomes unresponsive.

I recently had a trojan infection in my desktop computer that ended up with me have to reformat the harddrive, however, before I could do so, a new problem showed up. Whenever I give the system power, it boots up automatically, and will not shut down, nor restart, even if I hold the power button down. The only way to turn it off is by flipping the switch in the back. It displays nothing on the screen either, so I can't do anything with it. I tried replacing the hard drive, and that didn't help either. It currently has a blank hard drive in it, and still does the same thing, and it will run like this even if I disconnect power to both the hard drive and the CD-rom drive. Any idea how I can fix this? I can only assume it's a motherboard problem, but is there a way to make it work without having to replace the board?

    Thanks, resetting the BIOS did it. Now I can actually just reformat my old Hard drive and use it again, as I'm not sure if this hard drive I have in now is my blank or my backup file storage hard drive.

Try resetting your BIOS.

To do this, depending on your board, there will be a small battery. Make sure the power connector is removed, and then remove the battery from the board. Wait 30 seconds, and then reinsert the battery, taking care to make sure it is in the right way round.

Try powering up your computer again, and see what happens. You will almost certainly have to reset the clock afterwards, however the computer should automatically detect the drives, allowing you to reinstall the operating system etc.

If that doesn't work, then it sounds like you have a failed motherboard.

How to Clean Computer from Viruses


Sometimes your computer might get to the point that you won't be able to do anything on it because it's infected with viruses and trojans. This is one of the worst infections you can get and you need to follow these steps in order to get rid of the infected files.<br /><br />1. Download Hiren's Boot CD from a different computer if your doesn't work http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip <br /><br />2. Burn it on a CD and then put the CD into the computer full with viruses<br /><br />3. Boot from CD when prompted and from the CD menu select Mini XP which will load a mini copy of Windows XP onto your machine<br /><br />4. After Windows has loaded, go to Hiren's Boot CD menu and from menu select Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware<br /><br />5. Once Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is loaded, run a clean on your computer. This will temporary and hopefully forever will remove some of the trojans and the rogue antivirus<br /><br />6. When the scan is finished click to remove the infected files and restart your computer. Don't forget to take out the CD<br /><br />7. From the other computer download a FREE antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials from this link http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/<br /><br />8. Install it on the infected machine. Upon restart you will be able to do this, although the computer may be still infected. After installation of Microsoft Security Essentials, run a full computer scan to clean any infected files that weren't already removed<br />

What is trojan horse virus


A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

I have a Assemebled desktop which is causing weird problems since last 2-3 days, i use flock browser to surf internet, i get a trojan alert from Avast real time scan post which i click on abort connection,...


The trojan is certainly a problem, and it could be that your avast itself in infected. Your best option is to try installing a different anti-virus system, if it won't let you install properly, you probably have a nasty little trojan. Try using an anti-virus that allows you to run the diagnostics from a CD before the operating system loads.
As for the shutdown, that sounds like it could be a faulty power supply. I've had a few that died on me, and one of the first signs was the computer being unable to power up immediately after a shut down. Try disconnected any excessive USB devices that might consume too much energy, if you find yourself booting up easily when you're consuming less energy, you'll likely need a new power supply soon.

Computer becomes unresponsive


due to some virus/spyware attack some of the system files might have got corrupted which are needed for the successful operation ...

even though some people will say that the virus will not infect to vista .. but infact the common small viruses will not infect normally but the spyware/malwares will attack and some other virus which are not little they will attack to vista ..

so i suggest to install some good update antivirus and scan your system and fix all of them ...

after fixing if you still persist the same problem then you must reintall the vista this will solve your problem ..

if your computer is totally unresponsive then go to the "safe mode"(by press F8 key at the system startup) then scan your system and if needed reinstall it ...

thank you
