Occasional freezing and wondering if it's the MB


I would look at other connected devices first. USB hard-drives etc. For instance, after I installed a new drive with a copy of my system on it my PC tried to boot from my 'phone that was plugged in!
Once in Windows have a look in "Device Manager" and check for any issues (I believe they still show up with exclamation marks).
Also check audio drivers, they are nasty sometimes.
Can you boot into safe mode OK every time? If so I would think it's software related, if not you could have a flaky hard-drive (or M/B).
Without looking at you machine hands on I'm just guessing.
Good Luck!

My desktop suddenly suspended, switched it off by pressing the power button. Now it does not boot, the screen stays dark, though power lights on the PC and keyboard are on. What should I do?


You are the owner of a desktop PC that has developed a sudden and catastrophic hardware
fault - probably on the motherboard (since even the ROM BIOS doesn't give evidence of its
existence), but possibly in the power supply.

Desktop PC power supplies are (relatively) easily replaceable, so if you have as many spare
power supplies lying around as I do, try replacing that first - if that doesn't fix the system, then
the problem is on the motherboard.

Since your power supply is alive enough to light the power LEDs on the system unit tower and
also the keyboard, the problem is probably on the motherboard - look at it - there may be an obviously burned visible component - but there usually is no visible sign of the fatal failure.

The reason I do not suspect your HDD (hard disk drive) has crashed is that ROM BIOS
executes at (power start) boot time right out of motherboard-mounted ROM, independent of
whether or not the HDD is functional - and since not even the BIOS message appears on your monitor, I therefore know that the boot sequence has been interrupted long before the computer becomes intelligent enough to find and access a disk drive, and then command it to try to find a
boot sector.

How to fix the computer: isolate the boot problem to the motherboard. Replace motherboard.

Won't power up. Took it apart to replace fan and now won't even begin boot. Occasionally, it will only to hang up somewhere in the boot cycle. Got it as far as diagnostic' twice but hung up again (froze)...


Power on your computer. After teh Dell logo, if it stopped on the microsoft running green light screen, you have a no boot issue. Try reinstalling the OS.

If it doesn't even power up, try to reseat the following devices:

- Bluetooth
- Wireless card
- Memory modules

Then Power your computer back on... If it still doesn't power on, motherboard needs replacement.

The last led light blinks green and sometimes it turns solid red


red light is stands for hardware boot and the green one is stands for system boot and disc boot. when red light remains solid it means your system is in 0% cpu usage and nothing doing, stop working

Intel D815EEA2 mobo won't boot - no clue to why not.


I know, this is a very frustrating situation...
Unfortunately, the only reasonable way to find out what's wrong is to swap components with a reference system, until you found the defective part. I hope you have another P3 system available to swap parts.

I would do it this way:
  • First check that the power button is connected correctly.
  • Swap the memory from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If ok, put it back into the faulty system and connect the power supply from the reference system (or some other known good one) to the faulty system.
  • If this doensn't help, swap the CPU from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If the CPU is ok, the motherboard seems to be defective.

System will not boot the motherboard gets power the green light on the mother board comes on and the hard drive has a green light that comes on there is no beep though. I fooled around with it and it...


Hi,

Remove your ram and put it back again. Sometimes this helps, otherwise check if your power supply is giving enough power to run the board and all of the components.

Hope this helps!
Please rate!

Cheers

Will not start


I'm guessing that your computer was not working before the PSU change....

To find out what your problem is you have to Eliminate as many possible sources as you can, hence remove all your PCI cards and drives, (not your graphics card though, memory or CPU)

Check boot again... if it still fails to boot then it's either the CPU the MEM or the Motherboard....

if it does boot then plug in some of your cards, (but not all) and check again.... if system fails again, systematically check each card that you re-inserted.. this should help you find the culprit...
