the system before would turn on for a few seconds and instantly turn off. I'd have to turn it on again to get it to run. Now the system won't turn on at all. (a few times it turns on and goes off after a few seconds.
What could this be? I haven't the spare parts right now to test it with other stuff.
1) Press and hold insert while powering up your computer, holding insert until you get to the boot screen.
2) Clear the CMOS by resetting VIA jumper on mobo.
3) Remove the CMOS battery, leaving out for ~30secs and reinserting.
thanks all for replies. I did find the problem. (late reply sorry). Apparently the tiny metal piece for temp reading for my fan controller is useless. As it simply being on the cpu is just enough to cause heating issues.
Is there a special way to install them or are they really just a useless design?
Why in the hell don't company's just add it to the motherboard for external temp display....
