Question about Shuttle (SB83G5) Barebone

1 Answer

SG33G5 & Radeon x1950 pro 512mb

OK, building this shuttle has caused me no end of grief. (SG33G5)
I just bought a new sapphire X1950 512 pro for my shuttle and plugged it in, aka molex to 6 pin PICe, put in slot and switched the jumpers over to PCI.

The problem is, when I connect the power supply to my shuttle 250w PSU all I get is everything sounding like it should be working for a few seconds, no post or anything, then restarts itself and does the same again.

Now I figured this was a perhaps a PSU problem, and I didn't have enough power. So I tested 1 of my other PSU's 550w, and doesn't crash, but spins and no output...However onboard boots up.
I've tried telling BIOS to look for PCI and PCIex/HDMI first, but still onboard. I'm starting to think my motherboard can't see it there, even though I know it works well in other PC's.

(It spins and whirrs with the 550w PSU too but just onboard works)

Any help would be great

Needle fell through into machine while changing on my viking sapphire .Seems to have gone all the way to the bootom of machine.can I still use machine?

Are you able to open the bottom of the machine and remove the needle? You may have to remove the bobbin case and the shuttle. Do you have a small magnet you can use to pull the needle out? That would be the ideal solution. Otherwise, if the needle is resting on the bottom of the case and not anywhere where it could be pulled into the bobbin, shuttle or other area that would be moving during operation, you would probably be okay to use the machine. However, be very careful that when moving the machine the needle doesn't become lodged somewhere that it could cause damage.

Xpc sg33g5 shuttle. I turn it on 3 seconds later turns off then powers itself back on and repeats. Why is it doing this? Please help

It's not passing post. Start by removing and reseating the ram, cpu, front panel connections, PCI devices etc... ONE AT A TIME to see if that helps. Also, if your board came with a small black speaker, make sure that is plugged in because most motherboards will emit a series of beeps that you can use to help you troubleshoot.

try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
are you sure its the video card and not the fan that is faulty you could remove the fan and install the video card again and see/smell if any smoke comes from the video card if it does you will need to buy a new one
hope this helps

Shuttle xpc suddenly turns itself off

Could be overheating.
Suggest you check the Processor Fan is working, usually you can hear it.
If it stays on longer when starting from cold then that could indicate fan trouble.
Most PCs have onboard sensors which can be monitored by programs like Speedfan see then click on SpeedFan 4.39
Good Luck
