Question about Computers & Internet

My computer runs for 2 seconds then shuts down.

I recently purchased a new tower. Not paying attention when taking my motherboard and others from my computer. I forgot where certain things went. First it was the front panel (Pwr Switch) etc... I belive i figured that out because now i get some power. I press the power switch and all lights come on and it sounds like its about to start up, then it shuts down. If anyone may know whats wrong i could really use some help.

Why P5G41TM LX turns on and off automaticly?


You might want to check the heat your motherboard is putting out. A thermal gun is good for this and the price of these have really come down. I have seen some under $25. Check all the components on the board for excessive heat paying special attention to the processor and memory. Sometimes it is a good idea to remove the heat-sink and fan from the processor, clean them, reapply the thermal grease and see if that helps. Is your fan running at the correct speed? Sometimes this is hard to tell, but if it isn't running fast enough the heat will build up and shut you down. Another thing to look for is the capacitors on the board. If any are bulging out a little you may have a problem. If you let it cool down completely does it run longer before shutting down? Have you tried running it with the case open and a fan blowing on the MB? Just a few thing to check.

My husband recently built a new computer (previously built 5 others successfully). Motherboard seems to be working properly. Green LED lit. Graphics card works in another computer. Power supply...


Hi, the thing to do here is to narrow down what could be causing the problem, initial suspects would be the RAM chips. If you have known working ones you can try in it, try these, if not, try without one, then swap them over, or even try without both.

Also, remove any components that aren't strictly necessary, i.e. hard drives & cables, cd-rom/dvd drives, extra PCI cards,network cards etc

Another suspect may be just a loose connection, try taking everything out, re-seating it. Again, pay particular attention to the RAM chips.

It could possibly even be a faulty processor, have you another you could try? Try taking it out and re-seating it.

I installed ion ittusb turntable with no problem. when I click next on the screen menu a 1 second click starts and is there constantly. it only stops when I close the problem. I am running windows 7. ...


I ran into this problem recently. Go on to Ion's website and download the newest driver for the turntable. You will need the turntable's serial number. Also pay attention to the sound settings, the microphone volume has a mind of its own.

Power to the mobo


Without having the specs on the motherboard or knowing how old it is, it's difficult to say if it is beyond repair. Although my experience with computers shutting down that quickly while attempting to boot have been a problem related to processor overheating. Processors get very hot within seconds of powering on. If the processor cooling fan or the thermal paste is not working as intended the system will shut down quickly. You may want to check those two possibilities before purchasing a new motherboard.

Cmos checksum bad...usb current status detected system shut down 15 sec


Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run


Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.

Trouble shooting


OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.
