Question about Biostar M6TSU Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer does nothing.

Replaced power supply, no difference. During the past year, when my computer was shut down it increasingly took longer to boot up. Finally after a power outage, my computer will not boot up or tell the IDE to start. If I unplug the data cable to the IDE, the drive will start spinning. All voltages are good at the 20-pin connector.

Why is PC cutting out when graphics under load

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Smayson.

You computer system is quite substantial. It needs a solid, stable power supply. One that can output high loads for a continued period of time.

I would say you need a power supply of at least 850Watts form a good Power supply manufacturer. Corsair or Cooler Master. 80+ efficiency if possible.
It is also a good idea to take your computer system into a computer store for testing. They could connect a good power supply and check that it solves your problem, before purchase.
Take care!

Shut down during boot

Sounds like a cpu overheat situation. Check the cpu temps in the bios and compare the temps with the maximum operating temp of your particular cpu. It might need better/or/new cpu thermal paste applied to your cpu, and also check that your cpu fan is running and locked down tight (and not loose)

My computer shuts down after a few minutes

2 possible issues come to mind: 1) the computer is getting hot (CPU, memory or video card), 2) the power supply can't keep up with the demand.

Try using a program that lets your track your computer's internal temperature. System Information for Windows, , is the one I use. Depending on the cause, you may need to increase the ventilation of your case (add fans - slot cooler by the video card, front, back or side panel.). If the CPU is getting hot, make sure that the CPU cooler is working and consider removing it and reapplying a new layer of thermal paste before reattaching the cooler.

If the problem is the power supply, check the specs on your devices (memory, CPU, video card) and the power supply load rating. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

(I am not a gamer but the default power supply that came with my computer didn't have enough power for the added memory and video card. I replaced that and added a back fan (spot available), a slot cooler, a drive bay fan and cut a hole to add a side panel fan.)

Computer wont start(Plz Help me ) Added Much Detail as possiable

start by removing everything, ram, any cards plugged in, drives etc. Then try and boot it. If the issue is still present, shut it down and remove the heatsink and cpu. I have known CPU's to be jolted out of their sockets after an impact. Take the heatsink off, lift the lever and remove the cpu. Check that all the pins are still aligned and straighten any bent pins then refit the cpu and lock the lever down. Refit the heatsink making sure that the heat transfer pad or heatsink paste is still present and lock it down. Plug the power cords and front panel wiring back in and try and boot it. If it boots, shut down and refit each item you removed one at a time, booting in between each item. If the issue arises again, the last item you fitted is the culprit. If you can refit everything and boot the system up, lady luck is with you. If you still cannot get it to boot after refitting the cpu, replace the mainboard. Sorry but without special gear, locating a fault like this on a mainboard is a real pain..

Computer keeps re-booting while installing any operating system

Were the two power supplies you tried inclusive of the original failed drive or not. In other words did you try a total a 3 power supplies including the one that failed?

If not, please do so. That is, immediately analyze the original known part failure, the power supply or its connection to the board(s) you have tried.

Congratulations for such an exhaustive process of elimination.

Keeps turning off

Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.
