How to Reset BIOS on the GA-X58A-UD3R<span style="font-style: italic;">Motherboards often include hundreds of settings in the BIOS to adjust the performance and stability of your computer. Many of these settings, when improperly configured, can prevent the computer from booting. The traditional way of resetting the BIOS when it doesn't boot is to open the case and place a jumper on the motherboard or remove the battery for several minutes. Most newer motherboards include a reset button near the peripheral ports. The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R uses this more convenient method.</span><br /><br /> <span>Instructions</span> <ol style="font-style: italic;"> <li>Power down your computer by selecting "Shut down" in the Windows task bar or press the power button on your case for four seconds. Leave the power cable plugged in and the switch on the back of your case in the "On" position.</li> <li>Press the "Clr CMOS" button on the back of your computer for five seconds until the computer boots. The button is located with the peripheral ports between a USB port and the coaxial S/PDIF port.</li> <li>Press the "Delete" key when your computer starts up to enter the BIOS setup.</li></ol> <ul style="font-weight: bold;"> <li>Pressing the "Clr CMOS" button while the computer is powered on could result in data loss.</li></ul><br /> <span><span>References</span></span><a href="http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-x58a-ud3r_v2.0_e.pdf">GA-X58A-UD3R USER MANUAL</a><br /><br /><br />*please leave a ratings if this information is helpful and beneficial to you.<br /><br /><br />Regards<br />MultilinkEnt. <br /><br /><br />

My desktop pc cannot boot again, it keeps on showing disk read error.


if its showing disk read error then possibly there is some problem with your hard drive or RAM. there are more chances that you have to change your hard drive.
but you can try one thing just boot the computer using a bootable windows disk and try to full format the hard disk and then install the OS. it should help.
but if there are bad sectors in your hard disk then it seems that you have to change your HD.

Desktop with A8V-E SE motherboard will not boot


does the monitor light up when turned on if no recommend completely new computer M/board and CPU as this is the quickest and probably the cheapest way out of your problem.
time spent trying to fix old one is costly per hour spent
any water near M/board is fatal you only need 1 connection with water and that is that

Dell gx270 power switch


I don't think you need a new switch. The power "switch" on the front of computers today is a momentary action push button switch. Not a locking or clicking switch as older computers used to have.

Many of today's computers, including the gx270 / gx280 computers from Dell are really always on. You can see the green or yellow LEDs on the motherboards glow when they are "off" (like a sleep mode).

They are in a "sleep" mode until you push the power switch, which sends a momentary signal off to the motherboard to fully power up and turn itself "on".

I think you have something else happening here. When the system tries to power itself up, and detects a severe problem, it will try to automatically turn itself off.

The problem could be a bad motherboard, power supply, memory or processor. It could even be a failed hard disk that is drawing too much power (shorting out) from the supply.

If you had done something to the system, like move it or open it up for an upgrade, etc.. Look again at all the internal connections, and make sure there is nothing rattling around inside that might also be causing a short.

You could try removing all the PCI cards in the system, removing the power and data cable connections from all the disks (Floppy, Hard Disk, CD/DVD) and see if the bare motherboard (with CPU and memory) will boot by it self. If it does boot, then the problem was somewhere in those items and you can replace them one at a time until you find the problem, or if it all works again then it may have been a loose or bad connection.

If you have another machine available, you could try switching the power supplies and seeing if that is the problem.

Good luck!

Dell Precision M70 PC booting problem


There’s probably an issue with your boot-up files or the hard drive. Suggest you start backing up all your documents, pictures and anything else that you don’t want to lose. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. If no errors are detected, your software has a problem.

Sonicwall Firewall Pro2040 Boot Issue


If you do not see connection lights, you might be connecting the Sonicwall directly to a computer, instead of to a switch.

Try using a crossover cable, or try plugging the Sonicwall and your computer both into a network switch.
