Question about EliteGroup GeForce 6100SM-M Motherboard

1 Answer

Randomly shuts off

There doesn't seem to be any one thing that makes it shut off. I can be doing something, or I can be doing nothing & it'll just die as if I'd pulled the power cord. Any suggestions?

I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit, AMD 64x2 5600 processor, Geforce 8600 GTS video card, 2 GB RAM, a 400w power supply, and my temp according to Core Temp is usually between 30c-50c.

I am having the same problem along with many others, seems to me that this board is a waste of time. PC repair tells me that it is due to the "system timer" how this is fixed, I dont know yet.
Checking for bios drivers at the manufactures web site at this time, will let you know how it turns out. sorry cant b more help

usually the computer switching off randomly can be caused by overheating issues. Make sure the cooling fan over the CPU is working, if not you'll have to replace it. You can use compressed air to blow away any dust accumulated into the computer, to ensure maximum cooling efficiency. Another culprit could be the power supply unit (PSU) and you should try replace that (costs less than a new motherboard). If you specify what kind of computer (desktop, notebook) you have and the model I can be more specific. Let me know if this helps you, bye

HP w1907 CCFL's shut off randomly as if something is overheating, have had it completely apart and see nothing wrong, I have the plastic shell off of it and a 80mm fan against the video side, seems to...

error39 is a cd/dvd issue im not sure if this will help
Fist clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your CPU central processing unit making sure there is no moisture in the air line
dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of unforeseen problems
Test your power supply unit if the PSU units fans not working its faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function
hope this helps

My h1000e takes long to shut down?what could be the cause of this and how do i solve this problem?

Pepper, It seems that you installed something that is causing this problem. What happens is that when you shut Windows down, it has to close all programs running, whether in the foreground or in the background. Now, when all programs are shutting down properly then there is no problem. But when some one decides to resists the shutting down then Windows takes longer to abide by your instructions. You have to find out this/these program/s that you installed recently. Uninstall them if you can do without them. Alternatively close them manually before shutting down. What programs are these? That you alone can find out. Another reason. Does Windows seem to take longer while "Saving Your Settings"? If that happens, then there may be something wrong with Windows. Be prepared to reinstall Windows. Do not get alarmed, but just keep it at the back of your mind. Keep taking backups of your data regularly to be on the safe side.

Computer shuts itself off randomly!

Could possibly be a bad capacitor on the board. Or could be overheating. Clean out the inside of the case with some compressed air and double check all fans are operating.

A8N-SLI Deluxe asus motherboard wont boot

first you want to make sure
the power supply works, they can stay on for a week then die, then work again , then die

then disconnect the cd rom, and see if it still has the same problem,

next could be the processor , this would be the cheapest part next in line,
processors get warm when they work
if not , you would replace that before motherboard

you can also disconnect the hard drive a while
to make sure there are no config errors

Mobo dies after 30 sec

Hi there.
Try and clear the CMOS, it will be a little plastic coloured jumper next to the motherboard battery like this >>>>>>>
If its there move it over for 30 seconds then put it back.
If its not there take the battery out for half an hour.
Please make sure you take the power cord from the back of the computer before taking the side panel off to get to the motherboard.
Post back if you need to and thanks for using FixYa!!

Tried everything but replacing motherboard

You said it keeps getting slower. Ok you dont really need to change anything hardware wise as a computer should run as fast as it was when it was new the only problem that could cause it is software problems or malware. As you did nt mention running anti malware software i would suggest that first.

Go to then run the free trial option. Just select download on the middle of the page. Download and install and make sure to do the full scan once prompted. It will take a couple of hours. Make sure not to heal but delete.

Message me if you are still having problems.

Replaced RAM; PC keeps shutting down?

2 suggestions:

1. Make sure the CPU cooler is on properly.
2. Check your power levels. I had a computer which did this. Turned out to be the PSU which eventually died. A different PSU has had the board going for 5 days now, instead of 1 day or just a few minutes.
