Question about Abit KN9-SLI Motherboard

2 Answers

Freezes up after short time.

I f I let my PC sit for a few hours I can get to the BIOS Setup screen/or windows. After about a minute if I am in windows the monitor loses the signal. If I am in the BIOS Setup the scree n freezes and nothing changes. After that if I resetart he pc (turning power supply off unplugging and waiting 1 minutes). I monitor gets signal for a shorter period of time then the same thing happens. Eventually the Monitor never gets signal. Once again if I wait for some time, usually an hour, the monitor will get a signal for a short and lost it. The first thing I did was get a new graphics card. It didn't fix the issue. I have disconnected/removed everything but the power supply and graphics card and the same issue. I have removed the memory and installed only one module and got the same issue. The same happened when I swapped the modules, so I don't think it is a bad RAM issue.

    Thanks for the reply. I took a look and there was some dust between the sink and the fan. Got that cleaned up, but I still got the same problem. I took the sink off afterwards and the CPU was not the slighted bit hot. I'm not sure what to try next. I have cleared the CMOS memory as per the instructions specified by the motherboard manual. I even tried removing the backup battery for a few minutes and replacing. All the fans are working when I power on the PC and they conitnue to work after the monitor loses the signal. I have also hooked by laptop up to the monitor to ensure that the monitor is not the issue.



    Finally to clarify. When I say the monitor loses the signal the monitor goes blank and the power light flashes. It doesn't display a no signal message as it does when I disconnect it from the PC.

This is probably an over heating CPU(processor). Make sure the fan over the processor is working. If it is, check to see if the heat sink is fastened properly to the motherboard - if you can push on any of the corners and it moves in than there's an issue.

Also look for a thick layer of dust that might be blocking the air flow.

    This still sounds like a heat issue. Try checking for leaking capacitors -http://www.flickr.com/photos/houlihan/14...
    this image shows a good capacitor and a bad one. Bad ones can simply be bulging and when they heat too much they fail.

    If this is the case, you'll be looking at a new motherboard, or someone very talented could replace the capacitors, but it is not recommended.

Bios utility


BIOS Setup utility?

Dell laptop?

Lot of information here.......let me see if I can sift through it.........

Post the model number in a Comment.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

As soon as you turn your laptop on, watch for the Dell logo screen.
WATCH the bottom of the screen.
What key does it state to press, to - enter BIOS Setup?

Write it down.
If Windows loads let it load, and run a few minutes. Then turn the laptop off normally.

THIS time AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. Those are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it. Ignore them.

This will get you into the BIOS Setup utility.

If Windows doesn't load, press the CTRL key, and ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your laptop, and start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup key.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....


At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

Gateway E-4600 freezes even in bios setup, have upgraded power supply, new memory, reinstall system, swapped hard drives, happens after about am hour , but on hard reboot it freezes in a minute or two....


If your system freezes in the BIOS, then the issue is almost certainly the motherboard, which it sounds like you haven't replaced yet.
Good luck. Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

My Asus G71G-A1 Notebook freezes on startup and makes short beeps


Have you tried entering the 'Safe Mode?'
By tapping either F5 or F8 right after power on, you will interrupt the normal (currently ABnormal) Windows boot path and see a menu that will let you enter a mode with a terrible scattered Desktop but only very few Windows functions installed. One of the latter is probably bollixed.
If it worked OK in the last days, you may be able to use the saved (good) condition by reverting to it via the Restore routine. You can start this by clicking on Start, then Run, then entering in the provided window:
rstrui.exe
then click on OK.
Just follow the simple directions. This will not affect your recent (or past) work, it only restores settings and freshens files to a condition of an earlier point in time when things were good.
This won't always fix your problem if you have been invaded by some spiffy malware but it is a good place to start.
Let us know if this helped-

Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.
