    Its not a heat problem. All fans etc running well. It just gets past post displays bios screen etc then turns off. All processors well seated. I notice it has a couple of capacitors on the board on an angle compared to the others and they feel really loose like maybe one wire leg out of cap broken. Could this cause the problem? Are they repalceable and resolderable ?

  • Happy Gilmor Jun 11, 2008

    OK its not heat, have resoldered caps and its not that.

    Had it running for an hour on WIN UBCD and everything tests OK. Did a test install with mates xp cd and same thing gets to the reboot stage and turns off. Yopu restarts and it gets to windows loading screen then turns off. I am so confused ... he he . Any one have any idea what to try next ?. It has been running now fine for two hours with WIN UBCD loaded. Hard drive check says ok. Mem test for an hour says ok. Benchmark tests say its a fast machine... Have taken out vid card no change whether its on m board vid or the other. Have taken out sound card. Disconnected floppy, CD etc but no luck. Taken out one mem stick at a time. I'm sure its software related ...But I struggle to see how ???

Thanks for that. Trouble is I can not even get it to start. Thats because it turns off when the install reboots. I think thats well before win xp has installed. It is the reboot where straight after the reboot it asks for code # plus location, time etc. So there is no chance of using safe mode. Have just tried win 2000 cd and it looks like thats going to get there but I actually want xp on this machine.... Hmmmm will sleep on this . I t looks like the win 2000 cd I borrowed is going to work... Maybe this pc won't work on xp. I did buy it in used condition with no drives but being 2005 you'd expect to be able to install xp wouldn't you. Anyway thanks every one from NZ Kiwi for your help so far..

Suggest you download the manual for this board.
Click on this link: (Unless you have it already).
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/se7505vb2/sb/cs-007384.htm
Intel has a list of items to check, go to page 84.
You're power supply might be over heating & shutting off.
Most likely either of the CPU fan's are dirty/dusty & or not running fast enough or not running at all. PC's shut down when the CPU temp gets too hot. This is good. It is possible that the thermal grease has dried up or started to harden. Thermal grease is used to help the CPU transfer the heat away from the CPU to the heatsink fan assembly where the fan cools off the CPU. Please go over the manual & check the CPU fans.

    Happy Gilmor, yes they are important & yes it is resolderable.

    Good eye! It doesn't take much for them to break from the board. Most every board has capacitorss that are somewhat bent at an angel. Some are so located its hard not to bump them. Use solder tape to remove the old solder. Than use a tooth brush to wipe the hole on the board clean. Tha re-solder the capacitors leg back into the hole. To replace the entire capacitor you'll need to find its part number usually marked on the capacitor.

    Here is a link to help you get through this.

    Well I'm down to registry confusion. Though it odd that the system would shut down. Is there any way for you to connect the primary drive into another system? (Suggesting back up the data off the drive & in order to do a fresh format & reinstall of windows. (Time consuming yes)! Could also try windows system restore? (But that rarely does work).

    Personally I never use the windows CD to perform the format. I use the manufactures bootable floppy software to set the drive up. Than perform a fresh install of windows. Excluding using windows from formatting the drive. (I do not come across many boards that shut down like your’s is). The simple fact that you can get to windows splash screen before shut down does lead me think windows registry may be messed up. You can also boot into safe mode & run msconfig. Set windows to start in Diagnostic startup. This may help narrow down if the win registry is messed up. (It’s worth a try).

Check your CPU cooler. If it is not properly mounted your CPU/s could be overheating. There is a safety mechanism in Pentium chips that shut down the processor when it reaches a certain temperature. If your heat sinks are mounted correctly, check your Heat sink fans. Ball bearing fans are notorious for making a little noise then quitting.

I have IBM P3 and i want to change win xp but its not booting pliz help me and it doen't give me option of booting


Turn the computer on. Keep your eyes glued to the bottom of the monitor screen. This usually comes by fast, so keep your eyes peeled.

When the computer manufacturer logo screen comes up, look for the -> enter CMOS Setup, or enter BIOS Setup, <- key to press.

Write it down.
If Windows loads on your computer, allow it to load, and run for a few minutes.
Turn the computer off normally.
WAIT 20 seconds, or so; then turn the computer back on.

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key. (Or enter CMOS key)
Tap in 2 second intervals.

If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

Once you get into BIOS. look for Boot Options.
In Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.

REMEMBER, you have to Save Changes, or it will be like you have done nothing at all.

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Dell Screen- Windows Boot Manger Screen


If it's XP:

You can try a chkdsk or do an XP repair: (your data will not be be erased)
Chkdsk
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Chkdsk C: /R




XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If it is Vista, you would need to do a recovery.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

MOTHERBOARD PROBLEM


Check the jumpers of harddrives it should be MASTER and the two CD drive are set to SLAVE... Then cable 1 contains one master (winxp loader) and one slave (combo). The second cable contains one master (new 80gb) and one slave (CD-ROM).

Boot in safe mode to repair itself... Press F5 for that before it reads the OS

Good luck... Fixya
