Question about Shuttle (SB83G5) Barebone

1 Answer

SG33G5 & Radeon x1950 pro 512mb

OK, building this shuttle has caused me no end of grief. (SG33G5)
I just bought a new sapphire X1950 512 pro for my shuttle and plugged it in, aka molex to 6 pin PICe, put in slot and switched the jumpers over to PCI.

The problem is, when I connect the power supply to my shuttle 250w PSU all I get is everything sounding like it should be working for a few seconds, no post or anything, then restarts itself and does the same again.

Now I figured this was a perhaps a PSU problem, and I didn't have enough power. So I tested 1 of my other PSU's 550w, and doesn't crash, but spins and no output...However onboard boots up.
I've tried telling BIOS to look for PCI and PCIex/HDMI first, but still onboard. I'm starting to think my motherboard can't see it there, even though I know it works well in other PC's.

(It spins and whirrs with the 550w PSU too but just onboard works)

Any help would be great

Xpc sg33g5 shuttle. I turn it on 3 seconds later turns off then powers itself back on and repeats. Why is it doing this? Please help

It's not passing post. Start by removing and reseating the ram, cpu, front panel connections, PCI devices etc... ONE AT A TIME to see if that helps. Also, if your board came with a small black speaker, make sure that is plugged in because most motherboards will emit a series of beeps that you can use to help you troubleshoot.

Shuttle xpc suddenly turns itself off

Could be overheating.
Suggest you check the Processor Fan is working, usually you can hear it.
If it stays on longer when starting from cold then that could indicate fan trouble.
Most PCs have onboard sensors which can be monitored by programs like Speedfan see then click on SpeedFan 4.39
Good Luck

Shuttle SP35P2 Pro barebone system doesn't identify a SSD drive

If the SSD card is designed for a Dell, then this card is a proprietary card that only works with Dell.

Vista running on AOpen Ez65

I am taking it that you currently have XP installed?  You need to boot the computer from the Vista CD.  Please note that this will erase your hard drive.  So back up any important stuff before you attempt this.

No boot - constant fan

Update from my immediate post today: I've looked at other post that is suggesting memory or battery problem. To my surprise, after removing one memory from bank2 of DIMM, the PC came back to life! Whenever the second bank has either memory stick in it, it will stuck. So I ends up with half the memory, but get my system back. Not sure how long this will last though.

I Had similar history as the initial post: runs OK, and started random shut down 2 days before final stall. I am putting back my HDD and system, should be working, for now at least.

Power up on ST61G4


The "No Signal" display is an indication that there is no video output from your PC going towards the monitor. Cycling the power on/off a few times before the unit will start indicates there is a problem with the PC basic configuration. This may include:
1. Defective, dirty, loose memory sticks - clean or replace;
2. Defective, dirty, loose video card - clean or replace;
3. BIOS/CMOS settings too aggressive or not stable - set to default;

You can also try resetting the CMOS/BIOS to default settings by moving the reset jumper from its original position to the opposite end (1-2, then make it 2-3) temporarily. The reset jumper is normally very near the Lithium back-up battery. Alternately, removing the battery for an hour would also do the same, reset.

In some instances, it is the CPU fan blower that does not startup causing the system to halt. If so, it needs to be removed, cleaned, lubricated and re-installed.

At other times it can be cause by devices nearing end of its life. These may include the HD and the CD.

Still, this could also be caused by external devices which cannot be accessed/read at the startup such as a flashdrive.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My shuttle wont boot

If it's a new build, can you give details on processor etc. But if there is no bios, it's normally a memory incompatability problem, or the processor isn't active.
