Very stupid moment. =// - Page 3

post #21 of 73
Are the fans in your computer running full tilt after you turn it on? If they are, it means it's not booting. If they wind down after a while it means you're booting into Windows.

If they don't wind down, then you have a hardware problem

If they do, you have a video problem (which is still hardware, I know)

In the case of the former, I can only suggest swapping out parts if you have spares and testing the parts individually.

In the case of the latter, swap out the video card (or take it out completely if you have onboard) and see if it works.

It's the case of the former, the fans are on full pelt. The onmly problem is, I can't test the coponents because all of my old ones are DDR and different type graphics cards so they don't fit in my board. also my mobo doesn't have onboard graphics so I cannot test the graphics card.

I know, just trust me, it's what I've got to do with mine every time I want to turn on or reset my computer. The fans will go at 100% all friggen day. After a couple minutes of hitting the reset button it boots and works 100%.

There are two guesses I have for your troubles...

My first guess would be you are just resetting your cmos incorrectly. I really do not believe that there isn't a CMOS reset jumper anywhere on your mobo...in fact unless it was an open item then I am willing to guarantee it is there. I'll check out some pictures online to see if I can spot one.

My second guess would be a bad piece of hardware. I had a problem very very similar to this...I ended up frying 3 mobos due to the hardware issue and I never did fully figure out which piece caused all the drama. I narrowed it down to a bad graphics card and a bad PSU...and my gut instinct tells me the PSU was the problem.

If I can find the CMOS jumper on your mobo by pictures online i'll walk you through doing a real reset...If not I feel like you may have some RMA in your future.

@Vegnagun666 - I've tried this

@R2D2 - I've found the CMOS pins and I'm using a jumper from my old computer. What I've been doing is - removing power lead, pressing on button a couple of times, putting jumper on pins and taking out battery and leaving for 5 minutes (ish)

I'm guessing it is a hardware problem but I do not have the resources to narrrow it down

Are you sure you're putting the jumper on the correct pins? If you aren't then it will not work. Some board vary with what pins reset...sometimes pins 1 & 2 covered will reset and sometimes it's 2 & 3....I would try covering the pair you haven't tried already. If you did pins 1 & 2 try 2 & 3....don't worry about the battery...if you've done it already you're fine.

There's only two pins and they're labeled "CLR_CMOS"
