Power down I have an AK73 1394 Mother board and an AMD processor. The symptom is: It initially powers up when I press the on button but about 2 seconds later it powers down by itself. I then cannot power it up again using the power on button. I have to turn of the main power rocker switch by the AC power cord after waiting about 5 or 6 seconds, again, the same 2 seconds later same self power down and no successful boot up. please help me to debug this problem. Thanks Jay

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.

Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

I would back up all my data and reload a fresh operating system if I were you. Also You could really use more memory. These days 2 gig is light.

Hope this was helpful,

Mother Board problem

Are there any beep/s sound that you can hear when you try to Boot your desktop? If there are none then do some check the following: 1. Please check if you have properly connected the connectors for ATX 20 pins powersupply and for ATX 12V Power Connectors. 2. Press the POWER Button to turn ON your Desktop and Check if the Powersupply FAN is spinning to ensure that there is Electricity power for your Powersupply BOX. Then press (approximately 5 secs) the Power Button if Turn Off again. If its shutdown then your motherboard is OK. But when you press the Power Button and you hear a sound like a BOAT's Horn/Fogging sound then your Power Supply is not sufficient to provide power to your Desktop or CPU.. 3. If you got 2 or more memory Cards installed in your motherboard then try to install those Memories one at a time. To determine if one of those card is defective..
