Nasty startup problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hello guys

I have very nasty startup problem with my PC frown.gif

When i start the computer the motherboard will start for a second (graphic card and Cpu fans spin) then stop (shuts down and start over)

Sometimes loads the motherboard manufacturer screen and freezes then i have to shut down/restart so it will return to the "try to startup" phase which i mentioned above, my Pc will do many of those "tries" till it finally starts

i tried a few thinks to determine if the problem come from my hard drive, i disabled all booting sources but my usb = same happened! so i came to conclusion it is not the hard drive that is causing it

anyway i tried to toy with the bios options, trying different settings but nothing worked so far


The big issue is i just can't determine where the problem is ... :S, are there any tips or any advices you can give me pls ?

Sounds kind of like a short. Make sure you have used standoffs on your motherboard, or there isn't a loose screw touching the rear of the mobo ( If it powers on and shuts off).

Are you not getting to the BIOS/UEFI reliably?

Clear CMOS, if you don't know how you can usually do it by removing the battery for a few minutes. Make sure the computer is unplugged. Sometimes there is a jumper as well or a button nicer boards.

If that doesn't work start unplugging everything not necessary to boot the machine. All but 1 ram stick, remove the GPU if you have an onboard one, no hard drives, etc.

Also check all the power cables and the CPU fan cable, make sure your CPU fan is in good shape.

i did all said above and i still couldn't figure the problem

though when i removed the battery i manage to measure it , it says 3.24 and i think its supposed to be 3.6, could that be the problem ?

tricky one biggrin.gif thats why i couldn't figure it earlier it is the first ram slot not the ram itsself, both memory sticks seem to be working fine and will works fine when i use the second slot, when i use the first slot however i have problems booting up.


I still have no clue how to fix it though .... any ideas biggrin.gif ?
