Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

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

    Trips off during boot, power led on motherboard stays on. Disconnected everything other than boot drive, the same fault. As soon as windows starts, trips the power off. Have to disconnect power to psu to get it to switch on again.

When I turn on the PC, the fan on the CPU spins and the system turns off. This sequence takes less than a second. I replaced the power sullpy but nothing changed. The system does the same thing.

Hi, Lets try this to isolate the problem.
1. Hold down the power button just to check if the power button switch is not the one defective, if it continues with initialization then switch might be defective,
2. Second isolation was the power supply, since you had changed it already we proceed to next step,
3. remove/reset the cmos battery, the memory and the processor for 20 minutes and other cards in expansion slot.
4.After 20 minutes install the battery, memory and processor and video card. If it has the on board video, use it first before using the video card in expansion slot if any.
5. Power on the PC.
6. If still the same our last resort of problem would be the mother board itself.
