Gigabyte K8NS + shutdown problem

Don't know if it is a software or hardware problem, but my guess goes for hardware. When I close my computer (from windows) everything goes well , the video signal turns off , also the supply LED but the coolers won't stop, pushing the restart button is useless cause the computer is somehow turned off but the supply voltage is present at the coolers. Tried an clear CMOS operation using the jumper near the BIOS chip (with no supply of course) but this didn't solved the problem . P.S. same problem when "long pushing" the supply button THX and excuse my english

Re: Gigabyte K8NS + shutdown problem

Maybe you have a faulty Power Cord try replacing that first. Secondly check your powersupply's Fan if its turning. Lastly check your power button maybe its defective. SWITCH PROBLEMS Test it first by Shorting the connections in the motherboard. Use a Flat head metal screw driver. Be carefull though. A trick can be done here. Unplug it then spray the switch (Soaked) with warm distilled water with mild soap. then let it dry using a Hair Dryer. Then test! If failed, Replace the switch. If Persists then There is a problem with the Main Board or Power Driver.

GA-K8NS losing Cmos - not the battery

Hi, you can download drivers and software here:

Try to change the cmos battery.
When the battery run out of power the bios can`t
remember its settings.
Thats probably why you have a cmos error.
The battery is a 2032 watch type.
You can try to remove the battery and measure the voltage
with a voltmeter.
Its should be around 3 volts.
Consider to upgrade the bios when you get it up and running.
You have to make sure its the right mainboard when you flashing
the bios or the mainboard will be destroyed.

My pc is making a alarm tone sporadiclly and will sometimes shutdown and reboot.I found that by wiggling the harness of wires inside ,the tone alarm will stop..but will start again . Any idea? MB ...

That tone is a warning code.Go to the manufacture websight and look for error tones or codes.

take side cover off and secure all wires and make sure everything is plugged in correctly.
