This is a common and wellknown problem. Troublemaker is the MAXIM IC on the bottom of the mobo, near the power connector. If you can fix the solder points this will solve the problem.

most likely power supply, those power supplies are horrible and the slightest power surge cooks them. a majority of them I get in for repair are p/s issues, a few for mobo issues.

HP Boot problem


a1540n PC Desktop fails to boot unstated OS....
a very obsolete PC, in fact HP retired, support.
no problem really but makes getting books on it harder... facts...

  1. so did you make sure all fans work? and stay on,
  2. does the DVD drive eject button work
  3. does the keyboard caps/num/scroll locks LED toggle, when pressed
  4. does BIOS work with 1 DDR2 RAM stick (1 by 1) not 2 at once
  5. do the fans all work , up to 3?
  6. Does the F1 key work, hit fast at power on button, in 1-3seconds? immediatay after power on.
  7. did the screen show Hit F1 to enter HP setup? if yes did you?
  8. any PCI expanisin cars in the PCI slots, remove them?
  9. remove DVD and HDD cables, see if BIOS works.
  10. CPU fan Heat sink fins not packed in lent, as all are, clean it with Can-o-air?
  11. test the PSU? (ask)
The goal is BIOS screens, first. first things are first.


carbon dating retired PCs (hp zero support now)
is not easy. and is key to learning what BIOS is there (a pain)
the date you bought this PC is not important , the date it was made maters only....
standing here, i cant do that, id need to do hands on inspection
old AMD Athlon 64 X2

says ,,,,DDR2 SDRAM 2x1g it says, remove one?
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE TurboCache supporting 256MB
integrated, VGA.... no card. if it has a card for VGA remove it to test system using integrated VGA jack on MOBO
best i can tell, 99% off all review on pc have TIME STAMP(DATE)
but one review said it had norton 2006
so we know that one is 2006 and is over 10years old.
maybe 12 years old.. the dvd drive has date code, there in clear english, dates, if it says 2005 , there it is. other HP codes
in the PC also date the PC.



i looked up your ASUS mobo and they says its
The current bios is 3.07 phoenix-award bios.
Even ASUS dont have data on A8m2n mobos. now.

huge list of keys on PHoenix bios.
my guess is F1 or F10 is the BIOS hot key
remember HP ordered Phoenix bios under contract and HP
can in fact dictate hot keys... so HP wins here.
find the answer to this is hard. (no HP books)

hint 1: the coin cell battery can be dead, replace it on the mobo
life spans 3 -5years possible most makers top life is 7.


the goal is here, if this works we test the HDD next.
see?
its just 2 goals, BIOS, below
then getting the HDD working and last the unstated OS working.

My pc doesn't startup up


I had this problem too but I then downloaded the most recent BIOS driver from the HP web site and that seems to be working. At least it now starts and boots correctly but I still have the problem that it tends to hangs up after a short while.

Can sumone plz tell me wen i start my hp compaq nc6000 orange light come n thn shut down it dont boot bt after many time it get started n after sumtime the screen disapear plz tell me whats this problem


if you press on the top right corner near the pg up button on my set, it boots up fine but release the pressure and the screen goes blank but LED and HDD still hums. I got a guy to resolder the Maxim power regulator chip (BGA) on underside of the mobo. Now the set works fine. seems that opening and closing of the lid causes pressure and flex on the mobo and that in turn causes the BGA to "crack a lead". Only problem is locating the guy with the right tools to do it in your area. Got mine fixed on a recent trip to China

Not Booting


Hi, This is an old board trying to run a hungry CPU. From the symptom you describe the poor thing may be wearing out right in front of you. Anyhow, - In order of likelihood your problem(s) are probably:
1 - Defective motherboard. PC chips is well known as a maker of cheap mobos. When run even a little hot they have a short lifespan. A 3Ghz Pentium Prescott needs a lot of power. A faulty part may not always kill a session but it can ruin your life. Try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz. See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling the support chips may help. Best solution is replace this old warrior with a new mobo. You will also need a new PSU & CPU if this is the problem. Except for playing games, even slow dual core CPUs will perform better than a single core unit.
2 - Bad PSU. These also wear out, especially if run hot. Best solution is new PSU. If you do this, get a modern model that will handle a mobo upgrade should that also become necessary. Many options & prices here - be careful.
3 - Bad PCI card or RAM. If you already haven't - try removing all unnecessary hardware... then test for problem. Switch your DDR2 RAM in & out to test for defect.
4 - Bad CPU. Not likely but possible. try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz(if this mobo lets you). See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling might be the hot tip
