Question about Soyo PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hello I have a Soyo SY-P4VPT mobo. It has 3 ram slots. When I use any 2 all is fine, when using 3 the computer shuts itself off and restarts shortly after the desktop appears. This continuues to happen unless I remove ANY of the ram cards. It does not matter which of the 3 slots are used. Thanks for any suggestions... Ken

I moved a stick of ram and now my mobo wont recognize my graphics card

That is a memory error. Do you have 2 or 4 memory slots? In late model computers, they cannot be in adjoining slots, try moving to another slot.

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions?

Using a decent light, what shape are the Electrolytic Capacitors on?

There are Solid Polymer Capacitors. One on one side of the Processor, and 3 on the other side,

Those little 'cans' have a Red mark on one side, on the top.
Others used have a Blue mark.

Not talking about those. If they were bad you'd know it. They explode like miniature grenades, and throw shrapnel all over inside the computer case.

Referring to the Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors,



Did you install the 2 -2GB 'stick's in the Blue Ram Memory slots?

Slot 1, or also known as DIMM 1; is the first blue Ram Memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
The Processor reads what is in Slot 1 first. MUST be a Ram Memory module ('Stick') in Slot 1.

Most prefer to run Ram Memory in a Dual Channel configuration; so the other Ram Memory module should be in Slot 3.

Do you have the old Ram Memory?

Cleaned under Mobo;

The motherboard is mounted to a Support Plate.
The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate, or is an integral part of the computer case.

Mounting of motherboard TO Support Plate is accomplished by plastic Spacers, or metal Standoff/s.

If metal Standoff's are used, and ARE able to be moved, is there one that is in the wrong place? Not matched up to a motherboard mounting hole?
If one is (Or more) it can touch the exposed solder joints, on the bottom of the motherboard, and cause a Short Circuit.

Most of the time removal, or placing to a motherboard mounting hole, will allow the motherboard to work again.

Post back in a Comment.

(If yourself, or someone did Not follow Anti-Static Precautions; when handling the motherboard/working on computer, you may be looking at a pile of junk, now )

EMachine W3107 will not boot, no display.

Have you tried a different Graphics Card, looks to me like the onboard graphics card is at fault, there should be an AGP slot or PCI slot that you can plug a new Graphics card into then you should be fine...

Usually there is a factory image on the HD if you hold down the F8 key or F10 key while computer is restarting this should start the recovery wizard please leave feedback if this works.

How can i restart my computer all over just like brand new

you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
