Power button not working correctly?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A few days ago, i was installing a windows update and my computer restarted like normal. When it was booting back up, at the welcome screen, it bluescreened. After that, i couldn't turn it on. After messing around a bunch, i plugged my reset button into the clear cmos jumper spot (i didn't have a jumper to use). when i pressed the reset button and released it, everything started to turn on for a fraction of a second. After more experiments, i found that my computer would turn on as long as the power button is held down during the fraction of a second after the reset button is pushed and then released (keep in mind that it is still plugged into the clear cmos jumper). When i turn it on like that, it gets past the bios screen that shows a post error that says "cmos checksum error - defaults loaded" even though it doesnt actually load the defaults. Then it restarts, and it gets past the bios screen and boots just fine. I really don't understand why a bluescreen would do that, but does anyone know how to get it back to the way it used to be?

Please try to unplug the powerbutton from the motherboard, then try and connect the reset button to the powerswitch pins.

I once experienced that a power button hung up, in the sence that it would not release after the push, and the computer turned itself off after 5 seconds upon boot (After I hit the powerswitch) Connecting the reset switch and using it as a powerbutton worked.

The physical switch itself is fine, and i had already tried using the reset switch. I think something must have happened to my motherboard/bios when windows bluescreened.

Pop out the battery for a couple of minutes and try again.

Thanks Speced, i had already tried taking out the battery but i didn't take it out for long enough. The only problem now is that when windows starts up, it says "one or more of your disks needs to be checked for consistency etc..." every time. I think that the last time i let it do that it screwed with some of my files, and my computer is working just fine otherwise.

It's only asking about the drive since it has probably been shut down improperly (not your fault). I'd let it check it, just make sure it's not going to do anything before you read and know what it's doing.

Okay, this morning windows started as normal, but within less than a minute of starting it bluescreened with a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error. When i turned it back on and tried again, it gave me a bluescreen within a minute again with BAD_POOL_HEADER. I tried again, and got the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA again. The next time i tried, it bluescreened without saying what the error was. The next time i booted, i figured i would try safe mode, but when loading drivers it got kinda stuck on CLASSPNP.sys, and now whenever i try to boot into safe mode or normal mode, it doesnt get to the welcome screen. It just shows the boot logo, then gives me a black screen with a cursor on it >_> I've already reinstalled windows twice this week, and id rather not have to do it again.
