JimmyP9, that beeping you heard was most likely memory. Remove one DIMM at a time & test on boot up (If you have more than one DIMM. You can also test you're memory.
Go to this link & download software to test you're memory.
http://www.memtest.org/

Scroll down the page. Just under the three screen shots to,
** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** (Typed in red)
Download Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
to creat a bootable CDROM.
Or
Download Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win) to creat a bootable floppy disk to test you're memory.

Hope you find this helpful!

    Hi Jimmy,

    I'm thinking there can only be a few reasons a system would shut down during defrag.

    1. Hardware issue. 2. Memory issue. 3. Board issue.

    Since you did hear a few beeps & shut her down. That in it's self could cause data corruption. I agree with (early1234), that formatting the drive is a good idea. I personally do not use windows to formatt my drives. I use Seagate's software on a bootable CD to test, set cluster size & formatt. I use nothing but Seagate serial ATA SATA's. Using windows to formatt is ok for most people. I'd still run the memtest program once you finish reformatting drive or before hand. When you get to starting up the PC & start hearing the beeps. Let it run a bit & listen for how many, short/long & or just plain loud. That will be helpful to know.

    The beeps have a story to tell.



    Let me know & again good luck.



    Mike

Defragging uses a lot of disk drive space and memory. while you encountered a problem during the process of defrag, you may experience some data corruption after the startup, thus, your computer wont boot... only remedy for that now is to do a reformat.

How do i flash the boot chip and where is it seated on the pm800-m2 motherboard?


Most modern motherboards dont have removable BIOS modules. However they can be updated in the Windows. Visit the manufacturers website and download the appropriate BIOS update. Here is the link.

In the above picture i cannot tell you exactly which is the BIOS chip but it is surely among the three big chips near the RAM slots.

My pm800-m2 computer does power up but no beep and signal although i have changed my psu and cpu.


Hello,

check your RAM and your VGA card (if any). If the ram is not recognized by the motherboard, there is be no display at all. Also the VGA card.

So, remove the ram, clean the ram slot on your motherboard s there might be dust on it, check your VGA card if it is well fixed. Also check your VGA cord, is might be damaged, Check the pin on the cord to be sure its intact.

Do general troubleshooting your the motherboard and there should be a difference. But if there is not difference, then I think its high time you got another motherboard.

Lastly, test all the components of the motherboard with another motherboard in other to know precisely where the problem is coming from.

Be more patient with the motherboard and you will definitely get a solution.

Good luck.

PM800-M2 Restarting


reformat means that you have to install an fresh copy of your operating system to the hard drive. if you do have a cd of your windows installer like windows xp, just put it in your cd drive and restart your computer and boot from that cd. be sure to erase the partition that has your corrupt operating system installed ok to replace it with the new xp that your going to install...

that wasn't to hard was it?

Restarting PC


your motherboard may be experiencing compatibility issues with that memory youve jst installed. it will work for some time but when it starts to become unstable, it will restart, you have yo adjust the memory timings for that memory in BIOS.
