First approach shold be the CMOS utility, check in FAILSAFE DEFAULTS that the error settings for shutdown are either null for overclocking or disabled if you don't have the failsafe defaults on your CMOS utility then set your settings to best performance (should be found on the main page of the CMOS utility). If you are unsure of touching the CMOs then you could try to remove the CMOS battery (small 3 volt battery about the size of a 20 cent coin) located on the motherboard this should reset the CMOS and fix the problem. hope i could help,thanks:)

1. Stop Overclocking your CPU
2. Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
3. Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
4. Use High Speed fans
5. Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor
6. Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
7. Use Additional Cooling Units
8. Check your SMPS
9. Use proper ventilation in your room
10. Shut down your computer at least two hour a day

My computer will shutdown autimatically within 5 minutes


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Start up and then shut it self down


try clearing the cmos then go into the bios on reboot set the time and date then click on default settings and reboot. If it works fine after that slowly change the settings to your specifications. Sounds like the cpu might have been overclocked to high or the cpu is failing.

One morning I turned on my PC, and it gave me Overclocking failed error. Press F1 for something I dnt remember.. access bios or w/e. so now I went to Bios , pressed f9 for the default settings then I...


If you had been overclocking you may have fried the CPU chip.

You MIGHT try cooling the thing better and for sure blow out any dust occluding the fans.

There is a chance you have a virus that deliberately clobbers the BIOS settings.

I accidentally updated my bios and can't get windows to boot. All I get is a solid dash in the upper left corner and Can't do anything but manually power down.. How can I get the default bios back


sounds like you may have installed the wrong bios. Did you keep a backup copy of the old 1. You should have been prompted to save a copy.
Second thing is to report exactly what was said in an error message..."something/something" really does not cut it.
Lastly it maybe that your mobo just fried itself.One should not just go to doing a bios flash unless absolutely neccesary.
You might try to restart and enter the bios again and click on the install default tab and see if it will restore the default settings. You may have to reset the date/time settings. then save and exit. If the cpu fan does not remain running shut down immediately and try placing a house fan to blowing directly into the pc and try to reboot again. If the cpu fan shuts down again then you probably blew the mobo

Overclocking on this board with an E2180?


When the CPU overheats it shuts down especially if you overclock it.
Did you put any heatsink compound between the CPU and the heatsink (this aids heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink/fan)?

Your BIOS may have a setting that can adjust the CPU fan speed/temperature.
You can install additional fan/s in the case to draw more air into the computer case.
To further cool the CPU, you might have to install a better and more efficient cooling heatsink/device/fan on the CPU.

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


pils,

Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Problem restrart pc /NO AUTORESTART


It sounds like you're trying to overclock your CPU, and you have exceeded what the CPU is capable of, under the current conditions. When you start the computer, enter BIOS setup (e.g. press the DEL key), and adjust the CPU settings to default. If you're not sure how to do this, choose the "LOAD OPTIMAL SETTINGS" or "LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS" option from the main BIOS menu. If you are not getting this error until after Windows has started, then there is software installed that is trying to overclock the CPU for you. Uninstall it. It may be a program provided by Asus, or may be a third-party program. It will probably have "tweak" or "overclock" in the name. Overclocking can achieve an increase in performance, but will void the warranty, and does reduce the lifespan of the parts, and tends to make Windows crash more often. It can cause immediate failure of the parts. It should only be done if you understand and accept the risks, and have decided the reward is worthwhile. For most users, it is not worth it.

Overclocking failed


Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.

A8S-X restart problems


Silver Dragon isn't thinking about the problem here. It is related to the BIOS Hanging. The System doesn't POST so how could it possibly be a program?
I have the same problem with a customer computer and after reading many posts on the internet, I have come to the conclusion that these motherboards (ASUS A8S-X) are junk.
I have been building PC's since 1986 when I opened my business and sold my first custome built 286-10 system.
There is something inherantly unstable ablout these motherboards and from what I can gather, the AI for the overclocking feature is on crack and doesn't properly set itself up so that it overclocks the CPU to the point it will not operate. Many people have tried many approaches to solve this problem, but none works consistantly. My suggestion is to call ASUS and tell them you've done some reading and by now they know the design is defective and you want a replacement or refund.
The reason you can post after a reset, is that the board returns to default settings and is then pretty much useless as you can not select with boot device to use or anyhting else that is BIOS-centric. The system hangs on restart and the only way to continue is to return to BIOS Default settings nulifying the entire set-up process. The most common errors I have found to be the BIOS Checksum error and the Overclocking error.
This Board Is A JOKE. ASUS should be ashamed of themselves. REALLY!
