To start with the basic problem:
1. Computer wont post.
2. When i set the clear cmos jumper, the computer still powers on like normal, doesnt post and doesnt reset the bios.
Hers the background, I have this computer thats pretty infected with some viruses and I don't know if this is related to virus's or not.
The computer froze and now it will not post.
When i set the cmos jumpers to the clear setting the computer still turns on. Normally when i short those jumpers on any other computer, it doesn't start and it just resets the bios.
This doesnt reset the bios.
Ive tried alot:
-unplugging all power and peripherals to the motherboard for 5 minutes.
-taking out the battery for 5 minutes
-taking out and putting the ram back in
-using only the onboard video card.
But still nothing, the cmos will not reset and the jumper setting to reset it doesnt work.
The motherboard is an ecs a740gm-m.
I had flashed the bios in hope of that helping, but that didnt. It flashed the bios successfully and worked for a little bit longer before this happened.
You guys were right, it was something with the power supply.
This power supply doesn't have one of the 4pin, square motherboard connections so I had a molex to square motherboard connection that I guess had come loose at the molex connector.
I put in another power supply with a built in 4 pin and it worked, then retried the original power supply, unplugging and plugging in everything again and its worked good for a full 12 hours, so I think that was it.
