My cpu overheated and now my video,keyboard,mouse,and usbs wont work! Whats wrong with it. Do i need a new fan?


Why did it overheat? In cases where a CPU has overheated, it more likely you will need a new CPU. If you can get one. Does the fan run? Is there dust in or around the heatsink? Have you booted the PC? If so, does it start to boot? Does the operating system load up? Anything displayed on the screen? Any errors on bootup? Rgds, Dave.

Motherboard no display problem. i clean my motherboard, and tried by changing CMOS battery also. but there is still NO DISLPLAY. please help me..


I would guess that your video adapter (possibly part of the motherboard) is not functioning. You can add an adapter in one of the available slots if you wish to keep that motherboard.
This is the most likely solution.
One thing you need to try before buying a new motherboard is to disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and keyboard. Now start it and see if you get a display. If not, your motherboard is probably bad.

Please clear cmos if system no display after overclocking


Click the following picture to enlarge:
pctech1_0.png

CPU Overheated
If the system shutdown automatically after power on system for seconds, that means the CPU protection function has been activated. When the CPU is over heated, the motherboard will shutdown automatically to avoid a damage of the CPU, and the system may not power on again.

In this case, please double check:
1. The CPU cooler surface is placed evenly with the CPU surface.
2. CPU fan is rotated normally.
3. CPU fan speed is fulfilling with the CPU speed.

After confirmed, please follow steps below to relief the CPU protection function.
1. Remove the power cord from power supply for seconds.
2. Wait for seconds.
3. Plug in the power cord and boot up the system.

Or you can:
1. Clear the CMOS data.
2. Wait for seconds.
3. Power on the system again.

If after clearing the CMOS you still have no display, you may have damaged your motherboard, CPU, or RAM. If you need further assistance with this Motherboard, let me know.

Display not comming ,even I discconect hardrive , only for 2min. display come and then gone ...my board and ram is new just replace my cpu from old baord to new gigabayte g31 board..plz tell me i m very...


Disconnecting the hard drive will not influence the system's graphics. If the display turns on, then abrubtly turns off when you power on the machine, check to make sure the CPU is good, if it is a known working CPU, and the CPU is suppoted by your PC, you may need to reset the bios to default* Then boot the PC, and if it functions, enter bios, and set the settings as needed.



*there's usually a jumper, check your motherboard documentation

No video display


take it easy. any thing in its time.
first take out all you have entered in pc case.
second dissasemble any part and reassemble it again out of case sure. ( only cpu , ram and vga card). try it inoutside the case is booting your Mb with ram, cpu and vga that you have entered or not?
if yes put the Mb in his place but do not conect another peripherials (like hdd cd rom etc). prove again is Mb booting with ram , cpu and vga or not?
if yes connect another peripherials and continue with system operating installation.
if yor Mb isn't booting from begining then check whats wrong ram or vga or cpu?
(for this you need another component like it).
if it is booting outside and not booting inside case put a thin plastic film under MB in contact with case, because you have a shrt circuit elsethere and proceed after that with the rest.

Toshiba Satellite M35 and BIOS/CPU Replacement


No the BIOS is not a replaceable chip. Yes the BIOS can be reflashed once the computer is working. And, definitely Yes. An overheated CPU will definitely cause a shutdown.

GA-7VRX Motherboard won't boot


Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike

Pci express slot


Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!

Mike

D845SVR mobo - no boot


Before trying anything, try another monitor. Or try you're monitor on another system. Swap the video cable with another. (This is a must try). The reason it’s a must try is because you hear the drive run, the fan's are running & the LED's are flashing. Once you are sure both are good than reset the bios.
(You typed, D845SVR as you're board). There is no such Intel MB. I think you meant to type, D845GVSR.
Unplug the power cord from the PC, open you’re case & touch any bare metal on the inside of the case surface before touching the mother board.
Please go to page 10 in you're manual. Make sure letter "D", the 12 V power connector is secure. Remove & re-seat it. Go to page 37 for instructions if you need a little help resetting the bios jumper. Move the jumper to pins 2 & 3 for 15 seconds. Than move back to default, pins 1 & 2. The link listed below is Intel's main web site for the MB D845SVR.
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GVSR/
If you no longer have you're manual, you can download it at the link above. By resetting the bios, you are manually changing the bios to its default settings. Plug the power cord back in.
Try booting the system. You should get display. If you do not, than you're onboard (Integrated graphics), is most likely bad. A work around would be to add a PCI video card. The only other option left that I can think of is, it is possible that the CPU thermal grease between the CPU & heat-sink has dried. This will & can cause you're CPU to heat up. It may have overheated the CPU. PC repair is trial & error. Cleaning & replacing the thermal grease may allow you're system to function.
Here are a few PCI graphics cards you could try if you wish to buy.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319&name=PCI-Video-Cards
Once a PCI video card has been added, the bios will use the PCI card without you needing to make a change in the bios.

Good Luck!

Motherboard problem


start troubleshooting by unplugging everything from motherboard, leaving only power supply, motherboard, cpu, memory. also check make sure cpu fan/ heatsink assembly is attached securely and if encounter no problem booting like this, add harddrive, repeat, then add optical drive, repeat.
also when you check hardware monitor, what do u get for readings, i.e. temp and voltage?
