Re: Computer powering up

It looks like your mother board is old one. If so clean it with IPA solution (Iso propyl alcohol). Replace the processor.Then try again. You can also try changing your Video card. That can cause problems if not seated properly. If nothing works get your motherboard serviced.

Shut down during boot

Sounds like a cpu overheat situation. Check the cpu temps in the bios and compare the temps with the maximum operating temp of your particular cpu. It might need better/or/new cpu thermal paste applied to your cpu, and also check that your cpu fan is running and locked down tight (and not loose)

My 4 pin power connector on my PC Chips m960g motherboard. When I disconnect it then CPU runs, but when it's plugged in the CPU runs for 2 seconds then shuts off. Can I fix some how or do I need a new MB....

if you buy a new mother board your motherboard might be needed to reformat sometimes, this is because of the drivers that are installed already in your hard disk...if you are able to login to your computer then go to control panel and remove old drivers and install new drivers... in this case you will be needed to format your hard drive...

No display assus motherboard PSN73-AM ASUS MOTHERBOARD

When the PC starts up, do you get a BIOS display at all? Try fitting a graphics card into the board instead of using the built in port, if that works check the BIOS settings to see if the built in adapter has been disabled,

Pc keeps beeping 3 times and nothing on the moniter

remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem.
No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.
One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.
Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

Could be bad ram, motherboard, cpu, powersupply, videocard.

I haven't encounter this one, but you may want to check whether your CPU extra power is plugged in. Also, seclude the problem by checking if it is the power supply or the video card that is causing the problem. Remove the videocard and use the old one and check if it passes through. How much power can your power supply give and what model is your videocard?

P4VM890 + new videocard! No boot up!

welcome to fixya

Well i never did it that way but ok

your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,

once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card
this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards
Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,

i hope this helps you out have a good day:)
