Question about Computers & Internet
Less than two years ago I bought all the parts for my PC and put them together. Everything went well, except for one problem: When I start my PC from it being completely dead, the fans will spin, the lights will come on for about 1-2 seconds, then it will shut off. It will do this over and over until I do one thing; Unplug it and take out the 5 volt battery then reinsert it and start all over. That is the only way that I can get it to start up without shutting down almost immediately. On a side note, when I restart my computer, it will immediately go to the Bios screen (I think) where I have to press F1 to continue or delete to enter setup.
This was the most frustrating problem I had when I first got my computer. At that time I tried everything including; RMAing the motherboard, switching out the 5 volt batter, switching out the power supply, taking each component that wasn't necessary for startup and seeing if it was that). I really don't know what to do and it is the greatest annoyance(especially when the power goes out multiple times). Any help is greatly appreciated.
My specs(in case that is important): NZXT Lexa case, Asus M2N SLI Deluxe, AMD X2 4200+, Western Digital Hard Drive, Corsair 2gigabytes of memory.
That is an impressive wait. You must be an OR LP to have tolerated that battery manipulation; hopefully the surgeons aren't up nights over the 3 lost insulated forceps.... It sounds as though the system is dissatisfied with the CPU fan speed or another power/cooling interface component (CPU over 90 centigrade, chipset over 95 centigrade, the power supply fan running, etc.) and thus shutting down immediately to protect itself. Do all those things check out, particularly in the BIOS power/cooling section? How about fan and power connections on your videocard being right and jumpered accommodatingly?
That is, you could connect tach fans on any spare 3-4 pin headers and see if favor comes your way. The system will spin them slowly once it boots and you enable automatic CPU/fan control (and power savings) settings.
