Question about Computers & Internet

Loss of video, then auto shut down. No further Pc operation

Greetings Everyone:
First, allow me to describe this set up, and then to the current status.

  • A GigaByte GA-K8NXP-SLI ATX Mobo with a 939 socket
  • An AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 CPU
  • An ATI Radeon X850 XT & Same card with X850 PE
  • Four (4) Crucial Ballistix 1 Gig each memory sticks
  • A Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 4
  • Two 400 Gig Hard Drives Raid / SATA Striped configured with individually mounted fans -800 Gig / 100G space being used
  • Two large radiator: One at front intake & one at rear at exhaust with tubing from reservior see-thru tank to the pump, to the CPU, to both radiators in a loop with non-conductive XP Fluid & temperature gauges for monitoring plus alarm.
  • A 700 watt power OCZ supply
  • All other periferals not worth mentioning.
  • Windows XP Pro., SP2 and hardly used for gaming. Mainly business related uses and website building.
  • I even Hvac air from duct tapped from central heating and air in proximity of air intake fan in front of front radiator.
  • I know,.. It's like having a racecar to go to the corner store with. But the capabilities were there.
    Then, when all of a sudden, striped lines to the far left of the monitor screen, blank darkness and auto shut-down of the whole Pc. Pause, and there was an 'Uh-oh'. The attempt to restart, and nothing. I had another power supply on hand, so I changed over temporarily and the computer started - but no video and no sound.
    First guess was to obtain another power supply and video card (for just in case) Upon their arrival, they didn't make a difference. But now, the little dancing lights that usually turn on from the Crucial Ballistix Ram DDR cards don't do a thing and into a few minutes of the pc running, it shuts itself off.
    Any suggestions of what may have happened would be great. If the Motherboard, I can replace but then how to restore raid and configuration to bring all records back as before.. (Bios maybe) and No, I didn't use a back up, but it's all there between two striped hard drives.

    PC can start again after turn off the swich only, without using window shut down. But PC cannot start again after window shut down. If this happen, need to remove the CMOS battery a while to start PC...

    use comand f8 and del on your computer immediately when switching it on. this will lead you to a set up screen for bios options. enter the first option and change auto shutdown of your computer to manual. save the changes by f10 and continue to the booting sector to run windows. if it switches itself off though after changing values, then you should note that you windows might have been contaminated by a virus or nthe windows explorer registry is not working or interferes with other computer processes.

    i advise you to run system recovery using either a disc that came out with you pc or use a windows cd to recover by running it as if you install a fresh copy and along the way it if it XP just after you agreed to the terms by microsoft it will say press R to recover. this will not let you loose your documents but it will replace the current operating system.

    for vista, use the same windows cd you used when installing to upgrade, this will not also format your pc but replace the current windows.

    rather, open you computer and on your motherboard, there it a watch like battery, remove it carefully and wipe it with a dry soft cloth. and put it back. some dust particles may conduct charges on it that makes the motherboard loose its memory and thus shut down the computer.

    send me a comment if this did not work and some alternative ways would be suggested.

    thank you

    BSOD- STOP error message

    most bios updates are found on the compaq website, they need to usually uncompress to a 3.5 floppy or they are auto-installing programs u get from the website, your issue however sounds to me more like a corrupted version of windows, did you try a fresh installation with the recovery cds or master disks?

    Cmos checksum bad...usb current status detected system shut down 15 sec

    Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
    CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
    Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
    The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.

    Auto power off problem

    you have either got the power and reset connectors the wrong way round fro the front panel, or you have not enabled ACPI in the advanced cmos settings to allow the board to support shutdown by Windows. Also check in the power options in control panel and ensure that when you click turn off the pc is instructed to power down.
