I can not understand what did ctually you do.if you modify the bios can not recover .But if you tried for setup it must recover .
Open cover >remove battery>wait for 2 minutes>enclose the battery>go for BIOS setup .First you should do defalt or optimise then f10 (for save or as per guidlne for the mb)

You should only need to update the BIOS in exceptional circumstances. For example when upgrading the CPU on an older machine that was manufactured before the newer CPU was commonly available. The BIOS may not recognise the capabilities of the new CPU and a Bios upgrade would rectify this. A brand new machine should work straight out of the box and not require any BIOS updates.

Auto restart

Your machine is rebooting itself while you watch a movie on it? Could be a couple of things. First, is this a laptop or desktop? When is the last time you updated your video drivers? If this is a laptop, does it get very hot just before rebooting?

Theories work like so:
1. older video drivers can be causing a cpu panic condition due to a bug. This is more common with PC games vs. watching movies, but still possible. Updating your video drivers may help fix the problem if that's the cause.
2. heat: if the computer overheats, it will reboot to protect itself. As for why it's getting hot--could be that your video hardware or cpu is getting too hot playing the movie. Could be that your cooling fans are bad. This is why I asked about the machine getting hot.

Another possibility is the need to update either your BIOS or hardware drivers.

Please post more info if you require additional help.

I bouhgt this computer gateway DX4720-03 about 1 year ago. Ever since it keeps locking up evry 15 minutes or so and had to be rebooted. I have updated the BIOs but no difference. I have changed the...

It sounds like CPU is overheating, but other components such as the video card or motherboard chipset can also be overheating. It could be that the cooling fan either has failed or is starting to fail too. Make sure all the fans are spinning and the computer is several inches from wall and that the fan ports are unobstructed. This helps keep the CPU cool. Also try removing and reseating the processor; then reinstall the CPU heatsink with new thermal interface material.
I hope this help you.

I was given an emachine T2742, I turned it on and it worked for a little while and then went off by itself. I can hear and see the fan running. It will not come on but will continue to try to start. ...

After running can you feel any heat around the CPU heatsink? Does the CPU fan run at all?
Is it trying to restart and then looping back to reboot?

Try to access the Bios (press Del as soon as it switches on) see if you can get to the bios screen, see how long it will stay in the Bios screen before switching off or rebooting. If the bios has a hardware monitor, see what the temp of the CPU is. 30 degrees to 40 degrees is normal

Then switch off, unplug the Optical drives, the hard drive and floppy drive in turn, try to reboot and see if it is stable with just the hard drive installed.

IF the CPU heatsink remains cool after all that, the issue is with a dead CPU or a blown component on the motherbiard

just make new format for your hard drives . but before that you need to back up your data on an external hard drive .
after formatting just install fresh copy of your OS.

Emachine t5230 cpu fan too fast

Hi orinzelenak,

This may seem like to simple, but try checking to see if the technician plugged the fan power supply into the correct pin for it. It sounds like the fan is plugged into a external plug directly from the power supply and not into the board, which would control the fan speed for you. Give a look, and maybe it's just that simple.

Good Luck

Sudden Reboot with K7D Master MS-6501

What condition is the heatsink and fan In??? It seems to me that the cpu is getting slightly hot and is shutting down to prevent any damage..

Is the motherboard newly installed if so check that it is situated correctly in the tower.

The newest version of the bios may cause the problem as well especially if you used a flash bios program.

It has nothing to do with the IRQ and how close it is situated to the cpu...

Monitors are also prone to this problem have you tried the system on another monitor..

Have you been into the bios and changed the settings for the display??

If the board sometimes may have issues with usb 2.0 and creative sound cards then that will not cause this problem..

Clean heatsink and fan or replace(use silicone on cpu) and check the mobo is correctly fitted and no shorts are occuring with the fitting screws.

Run all the virus control programs as well to make sure there is not a nasty worm working it,s way through the system..

Lastly and most probably the answer is to try or change the monitor..

BIOS intermittently loses CDROM

Hi, first check that your RAM chips are seated firmly, then check the CPU fan for dust, then if you still have the problem try disconnecting the on/off switch wires that run from the case to the board, bridge the two pin out to mstart the computer and see if problem still exists. The final test I can offer is the power supply, If you can use a multimeter and test the voltage. Yellow =12v red=5v black=ground. If you get a variance of more than 2v replace the unit. Another way is to try a diferent power supply. Regards mistyman

P4M-915G/PD1 no screen, no BIOS, only power.

Do you hear any beeps at all? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? If not, plug a 2-pin system speakers onto the motherboard where it says "speaker" and listen for some beeps. You may have a fried CPU or dodgy RAM on your hands. Possibly even a faulty AGP/PCI-E slot, to name a few.
