A diffferent kind of problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
will try to keep this as simple as possible.

MY sys Specs are:
Athalon X2 4200+
Asus M2N-E bios 304
Kingston ValueRAM DDR2-533 1GB (2 x 512MB) PC4200 (KVR533D2N4K2/1G)
Enermax NoiseTakerII 420 W
Asus En7600GS
WD 250gig sata HD
LG dvd-rw drive

Whenever i boot upt he system the system randomly hangs and when it hangs, the display on the monitor looks like a tv when you switch to a bad channel. It seems as if the image on the screen has scattered. At this point the system is unresponsive, will not reset with the reset button or power off via the power off button. I am forced to turn it off via the psu switch.

If i try to boot it up after switching the psu on, the system doesn't boot and I have to play with the atx connector on the motherboard. Then the system boots but there is no display and it hangs again. I am forced to repeat this until the system starts up. If I decide to turn the system off, when I come back after a couple hours the system will boot up again and the problem repeats.

What the prognosis doc?

Thanks in advance

I would guess your motherboard is no good, don't see why anything else would fail like that.

hmmm i guess i will try to go switch the mobo again. I switched it once before but that was because I mistakenly thought a mem problem was due to the mobo.

could it be a cpu problem?

You said "mem problem due to the mobo". I'm not quite sure if that means you tried switching the memory, but if not you might want to try that. Memory can be a huge pain in the butt if it's screwy. There are two ways to check if the memory is screwed up, and I think you should do them both:
1) Run each stick by itself and see if your machine will post
2) Once it posts, run some memtests on each stick individually. However, if you want to save time, a memtest on all sticks will usually catch any and all errors.
I'm sorry if you really did remove mem and I just didn't get it.

Something is overheating. Probably the PSU.

Sorry I meant to say that I've already replaced the mobo once before but there was nothing wrong with the original mobo, it was infact bad memory.

I had a weird MB that had an issue with the main power moldex, even with three different PS...
It didn't like the main power moldex pushen in all the way, I had to pull up on it to the point of the retainer firmly catching... kind of like it was incerted to far it wouldn't work, very odd. Other wise it would have boot issues.
