Computer will power up for three seconds then shut down

I have a compac presario 50000 desktop computer ,msi 6930 ver 30 b motherboard ,amd socket a . It will try to power up then stop within say 2 to 3 seconds of hitting the on button ,just goes dead power supply light is on. I tried switching memory sticks with a known good stick. I have an extra socket a cpu and both start to get hot for the 2 seconds the machine is on . Hard drive is fine . Putting the cpu cooler on makes no difference. Voltages seem to check fine on the power supply. What do you think bad mobo/ or capasitor or capasitors on mobo. Thanks again Fixya, Eric

Had the same problem on a few motherboards, check your capacitors very closely. If they are rounded or split on top they are bad. You can change the capacitors with new ones to fix your problem but it often ends up costing as much as buying a new board.

How can I get my Compac Cq58 back to factory settings

the main board should have a jumper that is labeled CLR CMOS you need to switch the jumper the pins 1 & 2 over to pin's 3 & 4 make sure you understand that this is for the mainboard factory reset if you're looking to reset the computer's operating system and programs to factory settings that is a different procedure.for that I believe you need to hold down the f12 button well you're turning the device on hold the button down until you get a menu the menu will guide you through the procedure

Problem msi motherboard k7n2

Well you have me lost so far..........


A) No statement/s of what AMD Athon cpu\'s are used.

B) No statement of what you set the FSB to, for each said CPU.

C) No statement of are you using Anti-Static Procedures.

D) No statement that you know how to correctly line the CPU up, with the processor socket.

E) What frequency rate (\'Speed\') of ram memory are you using?
Ram memory typically operates at half of the CPU\'s Front Side Bus.

F) What makes you think those CPU\'s are good?
May have been static shocked before you got them, because previous owner did not know about Anti-Static Precautions.

A Processor (CPU) is the MOST susceptible computer hardware component, to Static shock.

G) How did you clean the processors, and bottom of the Heatsink?
What method are you using to apply fresh, new Thermal Paste?

Three more;

I) What jumper pins did you use for 100MHz, and 133MHz?

J) How do you know for a FACT, that the Power Supply is good?

K) What shape are the Electrolytic Capacitors in?
That motherboard is as old as the hills, and twice as dusty.

Presario f700 will not shuts down after few seconds will not boot

check all leads from motherboard to hard drive including electrical extensions and all of your cd/dvd drives make sure connections are secure dust free and not faulty
computers need all power and data to travel through every working device and to finish its cycle
so any faulty lead will end in computer error or shutdown or fail to boot

make sure your computers RAM modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge and seated with no dust in the sockets
some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
might be getting hot check your CPU make sure it has a thermal paste and a dust free and secure seating

hope this helps you
