Question about Mercury KVM800M Motherboard
and wish you a Happy New Year2011.
1. Visual checkup of the Motherboard: See for any defective capacitors on the board near Processor. A defective capacitor will have a tapered surface and a good one will be flat, on the top. You need to service motherboard. Most of the motherboards carry 3-years warranty.
2. RAM problem: try to put your RAM chips in another slot if vacant. if you have two slots and both are occupied, then try starting system, by placing one RAM at a time and in each slot alternately.
If any combination works then you can make out if and whether your RAM or its slot is faulty.
3. Hanging due to overheating: Before you get the message "Press F1....", pres PAUSE key several times, it should halt the process and the message will not be displayed. This will make sure that the system is halted by pressing the PAUSE Key. After one minute, release pause by pressing any other key and see if you can move further. There may be two possibilities . . .
a) If you are still in the same position, where you have paused the system. The system is halted due to CPU over-heating. Clean the CPU fan with blower or a vacuum cleaner. See, if all of the locks of the CPU FAN and the heat-sink are intact. If the fan itself is not rotating, check for the fan cable and if it is OK, then try replacing CPU Fan.
b) You have reached the same point where it used to stuck before, i.e. at "Press F1...". Now this means your system has halted while detecting other peripherals or add-on cards.
i. HARDDISK: Most possible cause is your HARDDISK is making "click-click" sound and not getting detected. Switch off system and remove all HDD cables (Power and Data both). Start your system and see if you get any message like "insert system disk" this means there is problem with your HARDDISK. the same problem may be caused due to CDROMs. try same and try again.
ii. SMPS POWER SUPPLY: This symptom may be caused due to inadequate power supply. You can change SMPS and make sure if the problem is due to power supply.
iii. ADD-ON CARDS: Remove any add-on card like, Sound card, Graphics card, Modem and switch on the system. if system starts, then turn-off PC. Try placing one card at a time. and start system to make out which card is making the problem.
If the problem remains, get back to us.
Have a nice day!

There are multiple instances when you would want to wipe your PC's memory clean and reset it to the factory defaults.
Called "formatting," it is often the last-ditch effort to restore a PC to functionality.
You will also have to format your PC if it gets crippled by viruses.
Although these instructions are for the Compaq Presario, the steps are essentially the same for all Windows based PCs. Be sure that you want to delete everything this process is irreversible.
Back up any data that you want to keep by saving it to removable media, such as external hard drives, flash drives, DVD-R, etc.
Unplug all peripheral devices, except for the keyboard and mouse.
Turn on the computer. As the computer is starting, repeatedly press F1 to initiate the recovery process.
When the BIOS setup screen appears, press the right arrow key to select "Boot".
Press the down arrow key to select "Boot Device Priority" and press "Enter".
Press the down arrow key to select "CD-ROM" and press "+" to move it to the top of the list.
Open the CD-ROM tray, and insert the system recovery disk.
Exit the BIOS setup by pressing "F10". Be sure to select "Save Changes and Exit".
System recovery should initiate. If it does not, and the PC loads Windows, then you have either failed to set the CD-ROM at the top of the boot priority list or you exited the BIOS setup without saving.
Press "R" to begin the recovery process.
When prompted, select "Full System Recovery".
Restart the computer when the process has completed.
Hope this helps.
