Re: when i power my computor down it , just turns back on

Hi, check the on / off switch, it is most likely sticky. To test it open your case and trace the wires from the switch to the motherboard. unplug the power switch wire and bridge the 2 pins together, this will start the computer. then power down and if it shuts down properly then clean or replace the switch.

Abit kn9 sli, my problem is this, when i turn my pc on the fans spin for about one second then it all turns off. the power lights on the motherboard stay on but it wont power up at all. if i turn the power...

Are you sure the 4 pin connector is going in correctly? Some motherboards have an 8 pin socket, and the connector can be placed in improperly. The symptoms you describe indicate a dead short on the power line when plugged in.

M4A785TD-M EVO Motherboard will not boot.


From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue

Please try the following

1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed

The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do

I hope this helps

Recently built a PC Power is On with No Display

Well depending on your bios version, it could be an array of things.

First try removing the video card and re-seating it.

Then re-seat the RAM.

If the problem persists re-seat the CPU.

Let us know the exact model of your motherboard so we can better troubleshoot your problem.

When you turn on your computer the system does a POST (Power On Self Test). If the POST sees an eror it will tell the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and the BIOS will beep a code or display a code that indicated the problem.

Different motherboards contain different BIOS versions. BIOSes use different beep codes for problems depending on the manufacturer.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.

BIOSTAR K8M800 Micro AM2 wont boot

It's suppose to do that. These motherboards are new generation. After everything is ready to go, you plug the power cord to the wall and pc. The computer power supply fan spins for about 3 seconds or so and maybe a few lights blink. This is normal. Its kind of a self diagnostic telling itself (I'm ok, you can power me on now). Did I answer your guestion? If not, let me know.

Help wanted.. really weird..

Check to see that the CPU is currently seated properly. Also, check to see that there's no too little and not too much thermal compound on the cpu. The compound should only be enough to cover the core, and if it's getting on the bridges of the CPU, it can cause issues like this.
