Mobo dies after 30 sec

When mobo powers up, "initalizing" appears along with I guess BIOS info, then the system shuts down. If I try to start it up again, nothing appears on the screen. Wait a long time and the same thing happens again. sometimes I can put it into BIOS setup mode but after 30 - 45 sec. it will die

Hi there.
Try and clear the CMOS, it will be a little plastic coloured jumper next to the motherboard battery like this >>>>>>>
mobo dies after 30 sec - 5d111bb.jpg
If its there move it over for 30 seconds then put it back.
If its not there take the battery out for half an hour.
Please make sure you take the power cord from the back of the computer before taking the side panel off to get to the motherboard.
Post back if you need to and thanks for using FixYa!!

Ms-7548 mobo no post beep and screen goes black after startup

this sounds like you have picked up a virus there are a few that will do this, you will need to reformat the hard drive. or use a backup disc if you have one made to install on computer. make sure you only go into computer in safe mode and use virus software to try and remove it. this virus attacks the startup file on the hard drive, and the reg files allocation. hope this helps failing this the hard drive has wiped its self when it has not shut down properly.

I have a PC based on a DQ57TM board. It generally boots fine but whenever we experience power cuts I cannot turn the machine on. I've sent it back and they replaced the board and the problem persists. I...

I just built a gaming rig based on the DQ57TM mobo with a first gen i7 860 and am experiencing the EXACT same issue as the original post. The previous "answer" failed for me, holding down the power button until the machine shuts off then trying to boot again did not work. I fail to see how it would, since holding power button tells the mobo to power down, but I guess there may be something built into this mobo's architecture that disconnects power from different parts of the mobo at different times resulting in successfull subsequent start-ups.

However, the GOOD news is that I have found a fix. Powering down the machine (whichever way floats your boat), unplugging the power cord, removing the cmos jumper from pins 1-2 and placing that jumper on pins 1-2 on the pins directly above the cmos pins for 5 seconds or so, then replacing the cmos jumper back where it was. This clears the cmos settings. This seems to be working reliably for me. For more details on clearing cmos settings on this mobo see page 62 of this document:

Also, FYI, in my search for answers I read that this mobo is unable to use RAM with operating voltages above 1.6v. I haven't tested as all I currently have are 1.5v sticks.

Also, I have what appears to be the most current BIOS version TMIBX10H.86A 0050. I wonder if there is a setting in the BIOS that can stop this issue, it's really annoying needing to open up my machine every time a hard shut down occurs.

UPDATE: I just downgraded my BIOS version to 0025 and the problem no longer persists. I cant help but wonder what other problems with my setup might be unaddressed now, but at least I dont have to clear the cmos every time I experience a hard shutdown with this machine. Oh, and now the machine chirps 2-3 times 6 seconds apart during power up. I have no clue what that means. I did try all of the BIOS options, the OLDEST one Intel has on their downloads page is the ONLY one that works. Maybe they will fix it with a new BIOS, but I won't get my hopes up, the current latest version ending in 0050 was released in 2011...anywho, hope this helps some of you! This was definitely one of the more bizarre mobo issues I have experienced.

2000 grand cherokee just dies going down the road. no warning no fault codes.what are the possible causes

no stumbling first? sounds ignition related check all the plug ins on ign system I assume it always starts right back up ok? sounds like either crank or cam sensor,if I had to guess it would be crank first but next time it dies try restarting right away without shutting key off first and let the engine crank for about 30-40 sec if it don;t start it should set a dtc which will tell you either crank or cam sensor but it will start happening more often until one day it just wont restart again.

Motherboard shuts off

You may want to try using another power supply rated at 300W plus. Also make sure your RAM is unbuffered and non-ECC. To set the switch correctly, you need to goto look at the exact model number of the CPU. Because CPU with similar marketing name could have different front side bus speed.

One more thing to look for, make sure there is no metal standoff sticking out of the bottom of the case shorting out the mother board. But my first guess is the power supply.

LThin ines appear on monitor screen

Hi Steve... You didn't mention what type of monitor you have, so I'm assuming its a laptop... if that's true, I've had this happen on my HP Compaq Presario v2000 before. It usually indicates a BIOS problem. Do this: clear the CMOS memory by removing the battery from the mobo for five minutes. Then, before replacing battery, press and hold the power button down for no less than 30 secs. Then, replace battery back on mobo, reassemble and start up laptop... Your problematic lines should be gone... If not, you can email me at or do a search on same.

Will not boot up at start

this sounds like a mobo issue .... if the machine has been in service for a while or is in a dusty environment a good internal vacume / brushing to remove dust buildup from the mobo might help.... also disconnect and reconnect the main powwer connectors from the mobo... the power button on the case is simply a contact which jumpers the two pins on the mobo... the actual power switching takes place withing the power circuits built into the mobo... you may also try a mobo driver update if it is available
