My emachine T2958 would not boot. the fans run but no bois nothing. i realise on the mother board alight is on by the letter F.Is it the motherboard ? help please


A good way to tell is disconnect your hard drive's, & CD/DVD ROM's power & data cable. Try to boot.

If you get the same results then you can try & remove any PCI cards from the board, remove your ram stick. Try to boot. If you get an error beep because you are missing ram than this is good.

Replace 1 ram stick back into your motherboard & try again. If it boots then you know the other stick is bad.

If removing all the non-essentials from your motherboard doesn't work then all you have left are the motherboard & power supply. A simply power supply tester or spare power supply will tell you if it is your board or not.

Boot from a cd


Go to your BIOS settings and under boot devices, get the CD/DVD option ENABLED (This may vary slightly with motherboard models, but not too much). You may also change the Boot Priority (i.e, which device is to check first for the boot.ini file) but this is not a mandatory option though.

If you have CD/DVD booting enabled in your BIOS, the next time when you place a LIVE OS CD/DVD (bootable CD/DVD) in your CD/DVD drive and make your computer restarted, you will get a message during the pre-booting phase: "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD". You should now press any key to boot from CD/DVD.

NOTE: The new motherboard models all have CD/DVD booting enabled by default.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

I agree with the technician. Contact Dell, and order a replacement motherboard, and get the technician to remove the old motherboard, and install the new one -- it should *NOT* be necessary to reinstall Windows, if the replacement motherboard is identical to the original motherboard.

NO POWER


If you have changed the power unit and the computer is still not powering up, then it is quite likely there is a motherboard fault - probably in the power management circuitry, which expects the power_good signal from the power unit at a precise moment in the boot up process. A fault in the power management circuitry would prevent the computer from beginning its boot-up process.

Do the fans in the power unit come on when the computer is switched on? If they don't - this suggests a power unit problem. If the power unit fans do start working but the computer still doesn't boot, this suggests either a faulty or 'dry' connection (easy checked) or a motherboard fault.

If your computer 'works' but nothing is displayed, try pressing Control+Alt+Delete. If it then boots up it suggests a power unit problem. If not .. we come back to the motherboard again.

A low wattage power unit can cause the problem you describe. Every 128 Mb of Ram needs 4 watts of power. Add more for the motherboard (up to 30 watts..) then the floppy/hard drive/dvd etc .. If the power unit can't supply the necessary wattage, it won't boot. The older 250-300 watt power units aren't suitable for modern computers with XP/Vista. Ideally, you should be looking at 400 watts plus -it will tell you on the power unit.

Though to be honest, it does sound like a motherboard fault.

The only other thing that can cause a computer not to boot up (though it will begin the boot up process) are other faults ... When you switch on does it actually display anything on the screen .. and are there any 'beeps'? 1 beep indicates everything is ok .. 3 short beeps and 1 long beep indicate a memory problem (and the computer won't boot..). 8 beeps indicate a video problem (and nothing will be dislayed on your screen). Same with 9 beeps .. which indicates a bios fault - and the computer won't continue the boot process.

If you have nothing .. no power whatsover ... it comes back to the power unit/mainboard. If you're happy that the new power unit you have put in is ok ... suspect the motherboard. If you have access to any unwanted or 2nd hand motherboard ... connect that. If your computer boots up ... its the original motherboard at fault.

Alternatively, rather than replace bits and pieces at random to cure the fault, take your computer along to a computer shop. It will take them minutes to test it for you and identify the fault.

Hi,
I see some other ppl with this motherboard got the same message. They fix this with going in the BIOS and set the "optimized defaults" In the BIOS.
How to go in the BIOS:
1. Hit the "Delete" button on your keyboard 2. And you will se "optimized defaults" on the right side of the screen.

Asus P4S800-MX Motherboard video problem


The system speaker is usually a set of four pins and you use the outside pair to connect the speaker. You may need to go to the Asus web site to download the manual if you don't have it. Try to reset the bios either by shorting the appropriate pins or by removing the battery for a while.
