    all the parts that im using for this are being transfered from another working computer. the only thing new here is the new mother board. i have a 400 watt power supply and also a 600 watt power supply that i have tried. it doesent seem to work tho. the 400 watt gives the mother board power for 2 seconds and the 600 watt doesent even budge it. since im getting some fan movement in the mother board i can conform that the mother board isent faulty. is there anything else tat im doing wrong.

What is this "same problem" you're referring to? The things to check in your situation are dust build-up, reseating components, and trying a different power supply. If those things don't work it's probably a video card or piece of memory gone bad, assuming the computer did work and suddenly stopped.

    You can't confirm the motherboard is not faulty just because you're getting fan movement. If you want someone to make a reasonable attempt to help you, post the details of the parts you're using. It sounds like an incompatibility problem so far.

    That's your problem then, the board doesn't support DDR2 memory.

    What processor do you have?

    What memory does the board support?
    DDR400/333/266/200 2.5V DDR SDRAM
    What memory do you have?

    You need to read the installation document and make sure you install the custom virtual GART driver, your board has an SiS chipset. You are connecting the video card to the computer power supply, right? It must be connected or the system will not function.

    I would bet on incompatible memory. Try some DDR333 and see if that takes care of the problem.

Shuts down 2 seconds after powering on.


Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail.
Hope this helps.
Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL

DR31PR Motherboard may have overheated and now does not work


I'd say your PC definitely overheated. Usually when a CPU overheats, the first things that fail are the capacitors on the motherboard, not the CPU itself. Most times, a failed capacitor is fairly easy to notice. They usually bulge out on the top and/or leak a brownish fluid. If you can tell that one or more capacitors is bad, it means you need a new motherboard, unless you have the right tools to test each capacitor and replace the faulty ones and no other components were damaged by the heat.

I have a toshiba m3 laptop, it was going then it froze, so i turned it off, now it wont start up, ac power and the on LEDs light up, if i remove and replace the battery the battery light goes momentarily...


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

Computer turns off after 4 seconds


1) Check to make sure your power on button is
not sticking.
2) Try disconnecting tv, monitors, and anything
external to see if it's not an external problem.
3) Make sure your ram sticks are seated
securely.

If computer continues to shut down after only a few seconds it could be a cpu or motherboard issue.

Make sure cpu is not overheating, and the fan on the cpu is plugged in and working.

good luck!

Acer has no power


If it only 6 month sold send it back to the store you brought it from as you should have a 1 year warranty with it. The other thing is when you switch the computer on does the power light come on and nothing happens? If so then the CPU could be out of it's socket slightly which this will have nothing to do with the power supply.

I suggest if you have had it from new send it back to the store if you purchased second hand open the cover detach the CPU fan and lift the release lever and push down on the CPU and close the release lever then replace the CPU fan and cover then try switching on.

Hope this helps you
Cheers J
