You will have to test the CPU on another machine ...remove all other connections and attach only the monitor

SOURCE: AcerPower F1 PC Desktop Problem

It could be a bad power supply. As far as I remember, this unit has a standard ATX 230 watt power supply. It should not be too hard to replace it. Its fairly straight-forward. Its a matter of removing the panel to access the connectors inside (make note of which comes from where) and unscrewing the power supply on the back of the unit. Reverse all actions to install new power supply. If you need more detailed help, reply to this post.

Boot your PC into "Safe Mode" (tapping the F8 key on boot to get to the option) and run a full/complete Virus scan with Anti Virus with up to date virus definitions and see what that yields.

More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .

Had the same problem myself a few weeks ago.

1) Check the cpu and heatsink are clear of dust and rubbish. If CPU's overheat, the PC can also shut down.

2) If so, then yes it could well be your PSU. Give it a good blow through/clean.
If that doesn't work then it needs to be tested, you can get small testers or go to a repair shop and ask them to test it. But make sure the test is run for about 30 minutes. I had mine tested, paid money, test came out good, but it wasn't run for long enough. Tested again it failed after 15 mins.

3) If you want to avoid that route first, take out the psu, dismantle it and check the printed circuit board, if you see what looks like a yellow fluid stain under some capacitors, one of them has failed. You need to replace it. But as a replacement CPU shouldn't be too much, I wouldn't go to too much trouble, unless I wanted to have the fun of repairing it.

Has the motherboard got a new BIOS battery?
Check the voltage of the battery, if it is a lithium battery CR2032 then the voltage should be 3 volts, if it is less than 2.98 volts then replace the battery.

Dell Optiplex GX270 sounds like a jet taking off. What is wrong and what do I need to do to fix it?


Hi,
You have to find out where the noise is coming from. It could be;
1) a fan on your motherboard if it has one
2) the fan on your heatsink that keeps your cpu cool
3) the fan on your power supply unit
4) a cd or dvd rom drive
5) one of your hard drives
6) one or more of your case fans.
7) a fan on your video card if you have one.

You don't want to open your power supply, so if this is the cause of the noise you can replace the whole PSU. Other than that, any other component listed above can be replaced by going to newegg.com for parts.

Good luck,
Hank

I'm just going to post some stuff, and you see what you may think may help.

1.I hope you observed the anti-static guidelines, or you have silently toasted your delicate computer components. Static will silently fry them out. You won't see it or feel it.

(Reseated CPU? Static will fry that thing out F-A-S-T! Didn't clean the top of the CPU, and the bottom of the heatsink, and apply new thermal paste? CPU is fried. Takes about 10 minutes or so for an Intel. Takes about 20 to 30 seconds for an AMD!)
2.Floppy drive has no power? It attaches straight to the PSU. Either it is bad, or the PSU. Even if you swapped PSU's, it doesn't mean the one you installed is good.
If the PSU has a weak voltage rail, it won't give enough wattage to the processor.

A.ALL the lights use less than 1 watt.
B.EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C.A harddrive sitting there spinning, because there is no processor to tell it what to do, uses about 2 to 3 Watts. (Read on)
D.When BIOS tries to turn the processor on, it can't. Why? Because processors use anywhere from 55 watts to 125 watts. Depends on the processor. If the PSU has a weak voltage rail, the processor won't turn on.

CPU Shutting Down the PC


The clips attach on either side of the heatsink. They usually just pry up to remove (take a pic if u can of the heatsink b/4 removing clips). I'm guessing the fan is loaded with dust. Cleaning a fan will usually fix any problem you're having with the fan itself. If after cleaning the fan it works and PC still shuts down, you have 1 of 2 problems:
  • Bad power supply; make a not if the fan for the power supply is still working; a can of compressed air does a nice job of cleaning the inside of the PC including the power supply
  • Bad motherboard; only cure for bad motherboard is replacement
I hope this clarifies your issue and please don't hesitate to post back with other PC issues. All the best!

Overclocking on this board with an E2180?


When the CPU overheats it shuts down especially if you overclock it.
Did you put any heatsink compound between the CPU and the heatsink (this aids heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink/fan)?

Your BIOS may have a setting that can adjust the CPU fan speed/temperature.
You can install additional fan/s in the case to draw more air into the computer case.
To further cool the CPU, you might have to install a better and more efficient cooling heatsink/device/fan on the CPU.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

Brand new motherboard wont start up


Hi,
try taking 1 stick of ram off the motherboard, and boot up with 1 stick in slot 1 or 2.
You should get some beeps, 1 is system Ok.
3 is usually RAM/Graphics problems.
Also try booting with the motherboard setup disk in the CD Drive, it may be looking for files to initialise the Board.
And the obvious, check that all cabling is correct from mainboard to front panel. Power on/off Reset et,c.
View the user manual to see if the board has any jumper/dip switch settings for different configurations.
