Please help - CPU won't turn on

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My first time OC'ing trying to get my intel p4 from 3.4 ghz to 4.0 ghz. I was upping my cpu voltage in the bios and went from 1.41 to 1.42 the number 1.42 and up were all blinking and I couldn't figure out why. I decided to give it a go and as soon as saved and exit the Bios screen to black and wouldn't do anything it just sat there running with nothing going on, no beeps, no BIOS nothing. I tried hitting reset and it just sat there still and eventually turned off on it's own. Now the cpu won't even turn on, no lights or anything I opened up the side panel and can't figure out what's going on. I didn't smell anything that indicated I fried anything, but anyone here have any suggestions?

Have a look in your motherboard's manual for the CMOS reset jumper switch. Reset this and it should fix the problem. Make sure you are unplugged first though.

Thank you, I am lloking through the manual and it says to clear CMOS jumper use JBAT1 example shown looks like

[o]
[o]
[o] JBAT 1

[o]X 1
[o]X
[o] 3 KEEP DATA


[o] 1
[o]X
[o]X 3 CLEAR DATA

I have a 945p series MS-7176 (v1.X ATX Mainboard)
It doesn't say where it is located on the board so I am trying to look for it, I am a total noob at this can someone here offer some more help, I have the computer unplugged so no power to it at the moment trying to look it over.

It's a piece of plastic over 2 pins about 1 cm long. There should be another pin next to it to move the jumper to. Make sure it's the correct one though before doing it as there may be several jumper switches.

If not, pull the mobo's battery and leave it for an hour. That should have the same effect.

i have checked and it is a 3 pin jumper with the jumper having holes for two pins.. so based on the above diagram

[o] 1
[o]X
[o]X 3 CLEAR DATA (one of the hole should sit on this pin) the other on the pin directly next to it...

make sure power cable is unplugged and after 10seconds relocate the jumper to original position and power on...problem should be solved

Yes, just turn off the computer, the power on the back as well. And move the jumper to the clear position (down one pin). Then wait 10 seconds, turn the power in the back back on, turn the computer on. Let it sit. Turn it off, power off in the back, move the pin back up one, power in the back on, power it on. And it should be working.

You probably hit your max on the overclocking.

Thanks guys,
I put it on the
[o] 1
[o]X
[o]X 3 CLEAR DATA for 30 seconds, then moved it back to the original position.


[o]X 1
[o]X
[o] 3 KEEP DATA

plugged it back in but nada still
I am going to try to remove the battery for an hour I have to go to work in a bit anyway so I will just leave it out and put it back in when I get home I guess.

EDIT: I tried all the above and still no power to the cpu... I mean it won't even turn on at all I moved it to the clear position just now and it won't turn on... guess I am going to give the battery a shot. If this doesn't work do you guys have any other suggestions? Think I may have fried something? I didn't smell anything that indicated that anything had been fried though... :***:

this happened to me everytime i pushed it too much...i just kept pushing restart and turning off the pc and unplugging the power waiting 10 sec and about 5-6 tries later it would post and say that you have wrong configuration and i would go to bios and change it again...I have an asus motherboard....not sure if you msi would do the same...

in this case...first of let me tell u that computers like ppl are a bit cranky...

so shut down ur computer and then unplug everything out...the hard drives, cdrom, ram everything...leave only the cpu in....

start the computer and see what happens...screen should be blank and ur computer should start beeping either 2 or 3 beeps...if it happens..proceed to next step

plug in the ram and start computer again..now u should see the screen start and bios description come on and after the ram count...if this happens post here and we move on from there...

let us know what happens....

remember it is almost impossible that the computer parts get fried easily unless u do something very very stupid which unfortunately for me i have done...

as an afterthought dont forget to plug ur display card out and after plug it back in before starting the computer...this should be done b4 the ram procedure...

i think i might be able to make a very good educated guess of the problem but b4 saying anything try the above first....
