Computer just shuts down? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
those switch at the back 115 and 225 or whatever if you put it to 225 it usually dont post....leave it on 115 but i have something for you to try. on your mobo the should be a reset. try reseting it and see if it works. if you dont know where it is at the manual should tell you look for something like cmos reset. it should be a jumper you just have to move it or it could be a button like on mine give that a try and see what happens.

It's hard to diagnose the problem if you don't have any spare parts available.
You should start by the easiest first. Try another power supply first and if that does not fix it then start taking parts out of your computer one at a time.
Remove the extra stick of ram if you have got more than one. Then remove the video card if you have onboard video...
Just make sure you turn off your computer everytime you want to remove or re-install something.
Also are you getting beeps or tones when the computer first turns on ?

Okay so Ive removed the jumper and my computer turns on and stays on! Now it just does a series of beeps over and over again. But IU havent plugged the jumper in yet. Should I plug it in again while the comp is on or turn the computer off and then plug it in?

Okay it works! But just one more thing... There was a little message that said that the last time the comp shutdown it was because my CPU overheated. But how is that possiible if I havent even OC'd my CPU???
