Good day everyone,what is the cause of pc that suddenly shuts down without any warning,after a few minutes i turn it on again same thing happen,i noticed two bad caps get puffy and i changed it,but it


This is hard to find out without having the hardware at a hand. For example, even though you dust it off, maybe the memory slots are still dirty, also is always a good idea to clean the memories edge with a pencil eraser. Another thing that could be causing this problem is that maybe your cooler fan is not working at the right speed, making the computer freeze or even shut down without notice. The same thing goes for the processor.
If you know a bit about computer, go into the BIOS and set everything to default, reboot. Good luck.

Abit kn9 sli, my problem is this, when i turn my pc on the fans spin for about one second then it all turns off. the power lights on the motherboard stay on but it wont power up at all. if i turn the power...


Are you sure the 4 pin connector is going in correctly? Some motherboards have an 8 pin socket, and the connector can be placed in improperly. The symptoms you describe indicate a dead short on the power line when plugged in.

M4A785TD-M EVO Motherboard will not boot.


Hi

From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue

Please try the following

1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed

The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do

I hope this helps

The PC is not shutting down


It could ofcourse be a virus, so I'd recommend a system restore back to before that happened. If that doesn't help load a backup or do a clean install.
Could also be the power connector on your motherboard is shorting with the reset connector (they're right next to each other) Maybe you'd check that first, before the clean install. Don't know if that mobo has a reset button though. They're usually in the right bottom corner of the mobo, together with all the other front panel connectors. Maybe you could insulate the power and reset buttons?

Else you could always buy socket with an off/off switch, and connect the PC to that. Just shutting it down and than turning off the socket when the reboot starts won't hurt the PC.

Problem booting into Windows.


Hi,
This could be a hard drive problem. The hard drive is looking for the boot sector on it, but the boot sector is broken. Computer shuts down and tries again but your hard drive can't find the boot sector so it shuts down tries again etc.

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


Hi,

This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the aumha.org site.

Computer power ON/OFF behavior is not as expected!


Hi...

If all the parts of your computers are fined functioning. This is a CPU problem witch is no display. Try to disassemble the CPU remove the heat sink the CPU and clean and insert it again. When you are now inserting the CPU be sure that you will put a thermal past in the heat sink so that the heat from the CPU are absorbed. If the heat will not be absorbed it will cause overheating.


Good luck! Thanks for using fixya.

How connect some cables


Dear Sir; without an instruction manual of your motherboard, I don't suggest that you, ever connect the wires, or attempt to turn it on, ON GUESS ONLY. From what I see you have all the info you need. Go to Biostar and buy a manual. They only cost about US$ 10.00 and then follow instructions to an iota. You are playing with fire...

Graphics card makes system reboot


Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card].
Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software.
That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!

Good Luck!
Mike
