Question about Shuttle XPC PC Desktop

1 Answer

Shuttle will not start from power on button-

My shuttle would not turn on most of the time; occasionally it did, at times way after I had pressed the ON button. Checked power supply voltages- all seemed ok. Supply comes on if I short PS ON ( green) atx pin to ground; if I remove the ground, it goes off. I checked the switch for operation at the header- it seems to be operating as momentary switch per its function. Once booted, all seems normal. The HD light stays lit if I turn the PC off. I am thinking there is a break in the connection from the switch header and the ATX PS header.Not sure the best way to proceed from here. I love the little PC- it has served me well for years with no problem.
Any ideas to try?

Hello Mitrabbit

How do I fix Pre-BIOS / Loading Screen before windows freeze with my shuttle sh67h3

I would have gone with a descent 600 watt Psu, however the Gpu is low profile, what's it like on onbaord Graphics, if it's the same there could be hardware issues.. Check Sata Cable to Hdd...also start pulling a few sticks of Ram out boot up one stick at a time...also use Speccy at check the heat these small towers if not vented correctly will get hot!, a better heatsink and extra fan extraction will cure that, expect 35 Degrees for Intel, 45 Degrees plus Amd ish only a vivid guide as all differ slightly maxing out at 60 degrees ish.. hope this helps

Shuttle has been working fine for about 4 years. Then it would be slow coming on, maybe boot up 20 mins after pressing the on button. Eventually refused to come on at all. I replaced the power supply and...

Change your BIOS battery.
I have an old Shuttle XPC sn41g2. It's been running almost constantly since it was new. About a year ago it started to be difficult, it was difficult to start and sometimes I had to try several times before it started. At the end I had to disconnect and reconnect the mains supply everytime i had to reboot the PC. Then one day I discovered that the prosessor was running at the lowest standard frequency so I went to the BIOS to set it right, did so and rebooted, and the prosessor stil wouldn't run right. After some thought I changed the BIOS battery, went to the BIOS, resat all settings, then it rebooted normally and since it has been running like new.

Takes up to 30 mins to turn it self on

I had the same problem with 2 of these systems.
You need to replace the power supply.
I know it's a weird problem. It seems like it shouldn't start at all.
But it solved the problem with both of the systems.

here is a link for the power supply at a few stores:

Hope this helps.
