Re: new system build, shuts off after 10 seconds

If you have had this problem sence the system was built and your power supply is less then 400 Watts. You will need a 400 Watt power supply or higher. Check the specs for our motherboard.

System shutdown in 15 seconds

Shut the power down to the computer all the power and pull the power cord out, remove all usb devices except the mouse and keyboard, Turn the unit back on and see if this fixes the problem, if it doesn't then you will have to go into the computer and clear the c-mos this will allow you to get into the bios screen from there you can set up the computer again. Check you manual for the instructions on bios reset, most times it is just pins 2+3 that need to have a jumper installed to reset it. READ THE MANUAL PINS 2+3 APPEAR ON MANY THINGS ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD

If you are getting through the bios before it shuts down, you may want to make sure that the CPU cooling fan is working and that there is plenty of airflow around the CPU heat sink. Make sure the reset and power buttons are working properly as well. Check that all of your RAM modules and any add on cards are seated properly as well.

CRC Problem

Chances are since the system CRC1'd it has a very old BIOS revision. From version 1.10 on, the CRC issue has been fixed. So, get the latest BIOS from IBM, T21 BIOS: and flash the BIOS. Reboot the system and verify the updated BIOS. Now power down the system, desolder the known good EEPROM and resolder the CRC1 EEPROM. Boot the machine and hit ESC when the splash screen comes up and watch the post screen. The new BIOS should have recalculated the EEPROM checksum and written the changes to it. You'll know if it worked because the CRC1 error will be gone.

Cmos checksum bad...usb current status detected system shut down 15 sec

Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.
