When I had this problem it was the BIOS you may have to reset the BIOS on motherboard somewhere printed will be word to the effect resetbios (different M/board have different words) it should be a 2 pin jumper with a jumper only on 1 pin fit jumper over both pins reboot quickly turn of replace jumper over one pin try a restart

Power shut down shortly after bios loads


Check the processor and heatsink/fan. If there is a bad contact between the heatsink and the processor, or the fan fails to turn the BIOS will shut the system down to protect the CPU from overheating. I hope this helps.

I have a Gigabyte EX38 DS4 motherboard. A few months ago the power light light would blink after I shut windows down and it wouldn't turn on again. If I unplugged the computer for a while it would stop...


As you may already know, your computer will shut down after power on if if the power supply does not receive a power good signal from the motherboard. Since you already tested the PSU in another computer, and you know the PSU is good, either you have a bad mobo or some device connected to the power supply is draining excessive power from the PSU and causing it to shut down.

Try removing the 4 pin pin power plugs from ALL devices, such as the floppy drive, CD drives etc.
If the system stays on when you power up, then you can isolate the faulty device by re-connecting them one-by-one. If the system still shuts down your Mobo or CPU is bad and you might want to take it to a PC technician to determine if it's worth fixing.

My computer shuts down after a few minutes


2 possible issues come to mind: 1) the computer is getting hot (CPU, memory or video card), 2) the power supply can't keep up with the demand.

Try using a program that lets your track your computer's internal temperature. System Information for Windows, http://www.gtopala.com/ , is the one I use. Depending on the cause, you may need to increase the ventilation of your case (add fans - slot cooler by the video card, front, back or side panel.). If the CPU is getting hot, make sure that the CPU cooler is working and consider removing it and reapplying a new layer of thermal paste before reattaching the cooler.

If the problem is the power supply, check the specs on your devices (memory, CPU, video card) and the power supply load rating. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

(I am not a gamer but the default power supply that came with my computer didn't have enough power for the added memory and video card. I replaced that and added a back fan (spot available), a slot cooler, a drive bay fan and cut a hole to add a side panel fan.)

Stand by


Standby does not turn off the computer. It reduces power consumption but does not turn the CPU off or the power supply. Because the cpu is still on the cooling fan stays on to cool it. If you want it to turn the fan off or be silent I suggest using hibernate or shutting it down completely.

COMPUTER DOES NOT BOOT


If nothing was disturbed then this is usually an indication of either the power supply going bad or the hard driver going bad. I start by substituting a power supply of the same wattage or larger. If that doens't work , I change out the hard driver.  I believe that is usually a good place to start.

Remove case side and clean out ALL fans then remove fan from heatsink DO NOT remove heatsink (probably stuck on CPU) clean all fluff and dust from heatsink.
Use a stiff brush and vacuum cleaner on power supply fan area
then vacuum out case include all vent holes and behind power supply. test start.should be OK
