PC doesn't POST anymore

Q: PC doesn't POST anymore

Hello.
In the last month i had occasionally a BSOD whenever the pc was inactive(OS is Windows 10).
I decided i was going to change the HDD in a few months(as an analisys confermed it had some errors because of age).

The situation changed 3 days ago: in the morning i started the pc and (before booting) it automatically started to diagnose and repair the system(don't know why).
After that it restarted and the nightmare began;now the pc continues to restart every ten seconds while showing on screen the BIOS (without text).

Here are the parts of the PC

PSU:Corsair RM 750W
GPU:Nvidia 1070
CPU:Intel i5 3330
RAM:8G 2Rx8 DDR3 1600 U
MOBO:Gigabyte GA-B75-D3V rev 1.2

After some researches online i found out that the pc doesn't POST,i tried many things,included the ones i ffound in this list
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-post-boot-video-problems

This are the results:
1)The manual doesn't say anything of importance
2)All the cables are correcly connected
3)I am doing breadbording on a non conductive surface
4,5)Checked,the results are the same if i use the integrated graphics or the old 950 or the 1070
6)I can't access the BIOS and i only have one stick of RAM.I tried all the 4 slots
7 to 10)OK
11)Ok,photo provided
12 to 14)OK
15)Breadbording so ok
16 to 21)OK
22)Tried integrated graphics,behaviour doesn't change
23)OK

Most importantly:
I cheked the mobo carefully,no signs of damage appear.
With only CPU installed,i hear a series of short beeps,with RAM also installed,no beeps are heard(remember that the mobo has integrated graphics).
POST beep is head only one time out of 20,even in this case the behaviour is the same(no boot).
I replaced GPU and PSU with the previous ones(changed them just to upgrade some months ago) but behaviour is still the same.

Here is a video of the behaviour:the CPU fan can't start in the first seconds and after 10 seconds the system automatically shuts down and restarts creating a loop.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ngQ0NMpqxY&feature=you...

I also checked the CPU state and it appears undamaged(photos here)
http://imgur.com/a/zyPCE

My conclusions: PSU,GPU and RAM are surely good.With a probability of 90% the problem is the mobo,the remaining 10% is on the CPU.

Please tell me what is the problem or what i can do to discover it myself.

EDIT:Even without RAM inserted,the system automatically shuts down as usual.

Preferred Solution: PC doesn't POST anymore

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sys: W2K, SP4; IE6, 512megs SDRAM, 1.2 gig AMD Athlon CPU, ECS K7SEM mobo, Award 6 Bios.

Problem: Upon system startup, power comes on, but nothing else--no beep to indicated the system has entered POST. After several tries, it will finally beep and the harware will come to life.

Once working it will usually keep working as you'd normally expect as power cycle to work. It's mainly after sever hours of being off and now always, over night that the error occurs--no power to the hardware, until several tries.

History: Recently been hit with many Trojans & viruses. They've made it past my NAT router, past my software firewall and have taken apart my McAfee AV program. But they have been contained, before they could do any damage, so I hoped, except I just got a bounced email yesterday, that shows I have been spoofed and my address book copied and is being sent to. So a Trojan got in.

I have SpyBot S&D, Ad-aware, McAfee VS8, two firewalls going. I have cleaned all the viruses/Trojans off the system, out of the registry with S&D, Ad-Aware, VS8, Trendmicros VS and Pandasofts VS programs. As well as using CWShreeder, MRU Blaster, BHO removers, HiJackThis.
The system is clean. no hidden files, every thing ok. It doesn't seem to be an OS problem.

A week ago, my power supply went out.
I replaced it.
It's since replacing it and getting all the viurs/trojan hits that the problem has begun.

Okay so here's the story,
a friend came to me with an emachines T2824 desktop which wouldn't power on anymore, after a little diagnosis of the power supply and all peripherals I concluded that the motherboard was shot. So I ordered a new Biostar P4M80 from Newegg, after installing the new mobo and hooking everything up, it posted and booted just fine and I got into safe mode so I shut the system down and proceeded to connect the HDD Led and Power LED to the mobo and finish putting it back together.. Now all the sudden it won't post anymore. Fans are spinning, drives work, but no keyboard lights and no video signal! I've tried swapping in a compatible CPU and PSU, tried booting with just CPU/Ram/HD and still no post, no beeps, nadda. Even tried clearing CMOS, no luck.. Any ideas or did the motherboard just randomly fail? Power was disconnected while I was messing with the LED connections so I know I didn't short anything.
 

A:New motherboard, won't post anymore

so you didn't replace the power supply that caused the problems in the first place? Hmmm...... looks like you shot the new motherboard now too.....

An oldie but a goodie here .. Built my comp about 3 years ago and it has been smooth sailing till now..had some spooky stuff going on in the case for a few days ..First of all 2 fans kept loosing power ..I opened up the case and (while running) moved one of the fan wires and they came back on.. figured it was just a loose connection sooo, I just turned off the box and went through every connection to make sure they were tight..After that I turned the box on and now I get no beeps and a black screen.. I thought maybe it was my vid card , so i switched it with another compatible agp card and started it back up ..This time it did post,but the screen did not look too healthy .. half the text was cut off (literally) and then the screen went black again.. I turned it off again and then back on and all went as it should...Comp ran fin for a bit and then just went black...I then decided to run on bare minimum and took out everything that was not necessarily to run ( unplugged extra hdds took out 2 sticks of ram and tried 1 at at a time in each of the 3 slots , unplugged all unnecessary lighting ) then started it back again and still it will not post... I'm thinking my mobo has given up the ghost but would like to be sure it's not the cpu as well..any suggestions on testing the cpu or mobo to see which might be bad? Sorry this is sooooo long ...

Hi everyone,
Hopefully this is the right place to post this ? I have, since about early February, suddenly not been able to post a visitor post to any FB page I have liked and followed. It doesn't matter what the page is .... business, hobby, corporate FB page, there is suddenly now no place for me to type anything, the timeline thing has gone. I only access FB using a desktop computer. My friends who use mobile phones to access FB pages can post fine, they get to see the timeline/visitor post box. I've searched everywhere trying to find out what has happened but can't find anything, even on FB help. Also, suddenly now, when I try to do a google search suddenly music starts playing and I can hardly type my search question into the search box as it is so slow it's stupid. I have no idea how to stop the music thing as I'm guessing that is what is making typing into the box next to impossible. Up until about 2 weeks ago I didn't have either of these problems. Can anyone help ?
Thank you.

here's my problem, as near as I can tell,

a few months ago the wireless connection on my hp laptop stopped "seeing" my wireless network. Eventually, during a scan with my panda security system a virus was found (for some reason it is no longer in the logs-but is was, I think, trojan or sasser in my outlook folders-and it was deleted). The wireless seemed to work again but then went back to being "invisible" to my wireless detector on the laptop. I went to HP downloads to see if I could just update the "driver" and ended up updating "system bios" which seemed to work also, for a while, then the system goes back to not seeing the wireless. I could sometimes do the right-click "repair" option to get it to connect but that stops working after a while. I think that there is still some residual virus lurking in the system to cause this problem so that is why I am posting here. Thanks for any help you can give

Hello,
I have a problem, my computer has recently used up to 5 minutes after clicking the switch to turn on. On the following day, however, it suddenly turned itself off as if it had crashed, and did not turn on again. Since then turned on only once but when I repositioned it the PC it turned off again.
Now that I disassembled and then reassembled everything, it has finally, again after 5 minutes wait, turned on. My pleasure did not last long, however, since he went out right after repositioning again. Now I despair, the Internet can not help me, since no one seems to have this problem.
PS: The motherboard received continuous power as 2 lights, above the startup as well as reboot switch is turned on. Have already tried to change the CMOS battery, has made no difference, since the old is still charged.

Here is my problem. I used my computer one morning, all was fine when I left for work...screen saver came on and all. When I got home, I moved the mouse around to try and disable the screen saver, nothing happened. Not the first time I've had that problem, so I turned the computer off, and when I turned it on again, and everytime since, I get a series of 6-8 beeps...then nothing. Nothing pops up on the monitor even though the computer is on. I've tried opening up the pc and making sure all the connections are tight, to which in my knowledge they are.

Does anyone know what my problem could be? Do I need to take it to a repair shop or what? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

-Vista Home Basic, on a laptop
-Verizon USB AirCard (Model USB 720)

After about 3 hours of turmoil I was able to find all the services that needed do to be turned on to get ICS to work through my USB Air Card.

I've been toggling ICS on/off between my Air Card and my wi-fi, depending on the physical location I am at. I have been successfully doing this for almost 9 months.

Last month I could no longer enable ICS on the Air Card. Soon after that the wi-fi properties show that ICS is permanently enabled, however I'm still not able to use my VoIP device through the wi-fi now either.
When enabling ICS for the Air Card I get the following message:Cannot enable shared access.
Error 1003: Cannot complete this function.
I'm using my laptop for business. It's really important, to me, that I get this resolved. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:ICS doesn't turn on anymore...

I think I found a possible answer...well, I know it did work for me. Don't know if it'd work for everyone.
After about 45 minutes of having a tech look at my computer he finally washed his hands of the issue and told me to install Service Pack 1.


Everything is all better now!! ICS toggles off/on between the Verizon AirCard and the wi-fi!!

Go install SP-1 and hopefully that fixes your problems!!

A few deatails quickly: I have an AMD Athlon 800 MHz PC, 512 Mb Ram, Soundblaster, N-Videa G Force 2, modem, Saitek X35 joystick and use Windows 98.

Under Settings it tells me that the devices work properly. What's going on? I've not installed any new hardware, only a couple of games.

Also, I don't know if this is related but my computer sometimes reboots for no apparent reason. Sometimes Windows won't even load but says 'Windows Protection Error...'

Hi I really don't understand why my laptop is acting this way, but it's been like this for about a week now. My usb doesn't autoplay every time I plug my usb into my laptop. There's nothing wrong with the usb though, since I've plugged it into many other computers to test it out and it still autoplays just fine. I tried right-clicking the drive in My Computer, but there is not autoplay option there, nor is there one when I try to change my autoplay options. I was wondering if there's a solution?

Additional information: Windows Vista Home Premium, Sony Vaio CR510E

I think this has to do with my messing around with the startup programs in msconfig. Darn it.

--EDIT- actually, I just checked on another PC and it's not autoplaying either.
 

A:USB doesn't autoplay anymore

There was some mention of a Windows update to disable autoplay on Secrity Now podcast but I don't remember the details. The purpose of disabling autoplay is so that its not so ridiculously easy to infect a computer with a virus that takes advantage of autoplay as soon as its connected.

I've had the same thing happen on many of my systems but to use Clickfree backup transformers, autoplay must be enabled so there's a little utility with that software that enables it again. Same thing happens when I install a multimedia program with a photo downloader utility that monitors for new USB devices.

If Vista is the same as 7 you can try going into Control Panel and look in the Autoplay utility. You have to have the device attached to your system that you want to change the settings fro so it will show up in the Autoplay--devices section (hopefully). You also might be able to right click on the device itself and choose the AutoPlay... item if its there.

Hey guys,

Sometimes I get audio problems where I cannot hear internet sound but can hear other sounds. When this happens the Device Volume under the volume tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window is grayed out. I usually just run Mats_Run.AudioPlayback (mr. fix it) and it fixes everything in 30 seconds and tells me the errors that occurred are because sound device was turned off, and because sound was set to really low level, and probably another thing too.

However, now when I try and run it it says "Mr. Fix it cannot continue because an error has occurred", and right underneath it it says,"the troubleshooter does not apply to this computer,". Is there a file that it cannot find perhaps? Does anyone know how Mats.AudioPlayback miracle fix it works? What file might be corrupt? Also sometimes some files will tell me to check if I have the proper authorization to run a program... WTF is going on? Please help someone.

The mats audio issue happend after I removed malware from my computer and and a rootkit. I removed it with malwarebytes and then with combofix. I can tell if there is a virus because I can sense when my computer is running 99.0 percent instead of 100%. Now it runs fast as hell and no viruses. Can someone tell me how to trouble shoot it with advanced techniques?

A:Mr. Fix it doesn't work anymore!

Just for future reference, Combofix should only be used under the direct supervision of one of Malware Removal Team members. Using this tool incorrectly can result in more problems than what you started out with.

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any driver problems?

Try running chkdsk c: /p

Hey everyone,

I've got this problem that's driving me mad and I can't seem to figure it out.

I have an Intel P4 3.0ghz on a Intel D865GLC motherboard.
It's about a year and half old and a couple of weeks ago I started noticing problems with booting and it seemed to be power related.

It won't start up anymore. The green light inside goes on, so it does have power, then when I push the power button, there are 2 ways it responds. 1) Either the green powerlight goes on and stays on and the cpu fan wil rotate once or twice and then stops, it won't do anything else. 2) nothing happens at all, not even the green light goes on. It alternates between these two situations.

It seems like it gets a short boost of power and then stops.
I had the power supply checked and it was fine and I just replaced the fan and the power cable as well, so that's not it. The processor seems fine, no bend pins or burns.

This is really frustrating me and I would really appreciate it if anyone has any input. I could bring it in, but these people charge 70 bucks just to look at the thing.

In response 1 does the green powerlight stay on after the cpu fan stops.

A boot configuration setting is available in the Windows Vista Beta2 release that disables the enforcement of kernel mode signatures to be persisted across boot sessions. Windows Vista includes a command-line tool, BCDedit, which can be used to set the option in Windows Vista Beta2 to disable signature checks. To use BCDedit, the user must be a member of the Administrators group on the system and run the command from an elevated command prompt. An elevated command prompt can be launched by creating a desktop shortcut to cmd.exe, and then using right-click and Run as administrator. The following shows an example of running BDCedit at the command prompt:// Disable enforcement no signing checksBcdedit.exe set nointegritychecks ON // Enable enforcement signing checks applyBcdedit.exe set nointegritychecks OFF // Disabling integrity check on an alternate OS // specified by a GUID for the system IDBcdedit.exe set {4518fd64-05f1-11da-b13e-00306e386aee} nointegritychecks ON These Directions will get you into Windows without having to run the Vista CD recovery Disk.How to Disable Signature Enforcement:Using the F8 option. An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista Disable Driver Signature Enforcement is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions

I posted this in XP category but I'm posting here also as I really don't know where to post it. I have a problem. The first part is not really important as I just right click and use copy shortcut-- this is in my e-mail --if I click on a link nothing will open. If I click on a download link anywhere -- again nothing will open so I have to use copy shortcut again. And if i want to go to yahoo games I can get everywhere but to the room ( no way around this one except to use another browser). I have been using the msn browser with the butterfly as my IE doesn't work for any games. This use to work. I'm totally unable to solve this. It's only been last couple of weeks. I thought perhaps it was an active x problem but I know nothing about active x! I did have an attempt at hijacking browser and a worm came to visit..sighs! But have been able to remove both. I also downloaded spysweeper about the same time so I really don't know what caused this. I did notice in other places you want copies of Hijack this so I have downloaded this and here it is.

The 016 items are active X controls. If you play games on Yahoo then these are normal. You can remove them..but they will get reinstalled when you go back to play the game. There are no baddies in your items that I see. ON this download issue have you tryed to reset your web settings or try and repair IE6? http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=318378

Nevermind, I solved this; just had to go to sound in control panel and reset the device.

This is the first tech support problem I've had in a long while that's just completely over my head - but it certainly is just that, so I come humbly to you.

Fortunately, at least, i know exactly how it happened (I just don't know how to fix it). Everything was working fine, when I decided that I wanted to download and install the AllMusicConverter, so that I could convert M4as to mp3s It asked me if I wished to install an audio driver, MusCAudio, and without thinking I said yes.

Suddenly, my sound does not work. I look up the driver, it's mentioned in the context of trojans and viruses. I uninstall and restart. Sadly, things still don't work.

My other sound driver, which is still on the computer and updated, is Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221. I'm running Vista on an HP Pavillion.

Thanks!

Here's the scenario...
Several months ago, I helped a friend install a wireless network at his house. Worked fine...no problems. Has one desktop that is hard-wired to the router, and a laptop and another desktop that were using the wireless.

Approx. 2 months ago, network quit working. At this time, he had comcast come out and install their Voip system for his phones that he uses for business. At this time, they also brought one of their modems (told him it was better), and put it in, instead of his linksys that was originally used. His network just went downhill after that. No wireless network whatsoever, and the desktop that is hard wired, can only access internet through the router, if the mac is cloned to the router...hmmmm...
Yet, I can bring the laptop to my house, and it picks right up on my wireless network and requests the WEP key when the network is clicked on. Give it the wep, and it's got access.

The modem that Comcast installed is one with a battery backup.
Have they attached the mac of the desktop to that modem?? Is that why nothing is working?

He's getting very frustrated with it all. Of course Comcast can't help, even thought it was working before they installed that modem!!
I have compared ALL of his route settings to mine, as he is now using the exact same router at his house. All settings match, except that we cloned the mac so the desktop had access.
Any ideas what's going on here??
I'm stumped, except for wondering about ... Read more

A:network doesn't work anymore!

It could be, the MAC address is unique to that perticular machine, cloning may not work eaither as not only the MAC may be registered but also the IP or IP's assigned, if not static.

I'm trying to install a Hauppauge TV card. At my first attempt the drivers were installed correctly, but after some problems with installing the TV-software, I decided to do it all over again. I removed all drivers and software. Now when XP localizes the new hardware (it is recognised as a multimedia device) and searches for the drivers, it says that the software could not be found on my computer. Even when I point to the drivers directory manually (either on the CD-Rom or on my computer), the driver is not recognised. But it is still the same driver which was accepted at my first attempt! What could be wrong? I already searched the web for simular problems but I couldn't find any. Please somebody help me.

Thanks,

A:XP doesn't recognize my driver anymore

More often than not it is tricky getting windows to recognize certain drivers. I have had similar experiences in the past. The only advice I have is to look online and make sure you have the most current driver available for that device. If not sure, simply download latest and put it on a floppy or cd. Once I just kept trying the same driver and yippie Windows decided it would recognize that particular attempt and installed it. Why doesnt anyone post reply's in this forum??? Even if you dont know the answer you could at least give some advice.

Hello, I'm the happy owner of a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th gen, received 3 weeks ago and it doesn't boot anymore. Yesterday, I left it up and running, not plugged in and it shut down after being discharged. Since then, I haven't been able to boot up the device. When I plug the power plug, I could see the red light showing it's charging and now it became green which means it's fully charged but nothing happens when I press the button start. As well, when I plug the AC adapter, the power button blinks 3 times green. I've tried to perform a hard reset using a clip and the middle hole in the back but no success. Does anybody had such experience and has an idea on how sort out this thing? help would be really appreciate. Regards, poy

I have used Microsoft Publisher on my PC for a year or so. I believe I may have deleted an important file by mistake. I downloaded a free trail of one of those disc cleanup/mechanic programs, ran it and deleted a bunch of files it suggested were junk. Since then when I go to open publisher (any and all ways), it attempts to install microsoft office 2000 disc 2. It will ask me to put in the cd but I don't have it. A friend built my PC (AMD-K6 500mhz 64 ram) therefore I have no product packaging to talk to Microsoft tech support. Any ideas?
The file "mspub.exe" is in tact...or at least present.

A:Publisher doesn't open anymore.

Are you still not able to use your Publisher?

I lost my ablity to get into Publisher when I uninstalled a McAfee VirusScan file. (And I use it for work!)

I want to Microsoft and found this very helpful note. Go to http://support.microsoft.com/suppor...2344&rnk=1&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=PUB2000

OR you can use the instructions from it that I pasted below. I used method 2, but my CD-ROM drive didn't work, so I searched and -- glory to God! -- found the Imagehlp.dll in a temp file and was able to restore it by using these instructions.

SYMPTOMS
When you run Microsoft Office 2000 Setup or click Detect and Repair on the Help menu, you may receive the following error messages:

Internal Error 2344: Please contact product support for assistance.
-and-
Installer ended prematurely because of an error.

CAUSE
This problem can occur if the Imagehlp.dll file is missing from your computer. The file may be missing if one of the following is true:
You remove McAfee VirusScan 4.0.2 from your computer. The VirusScan uninstall program can remove the Imagehlp.dll file.

-or-
You upgrade to a version of McAfee VirusScan later than 4.0.2. The VirusScan upgrade program can remove the Imagehlp.dll file.

RESOLUTION
To correct this problem, use one of the following methods.

Method 1: Use Extract.exe
In Windows Explorer, copy the Extract.exe file from the System folder of your Microsoft Office 2000 CD1 to the Desktop folder on your computer.

After playing PlanetSide 2, my font on my computer looks kind of dull or just a little bit blurry. I tried taking a screen shot, but it looks fine in the screen shot. Any reason why?

When I was playing PlanetSide 2, I accidentally choosed a 1600 resolution. My monitor then "auto-adjusted" then when I changed it back to 1920x1080 (my actual resolution), it didn't "auto-adjust", I think that's whats causing it. I've restarted my computer and no results still.

EDIT: If I turn it down to 50 hertz (refresh rate) it looks normal. But my screen is getting cut off at the edges

Hello there. I've had my autorun.inf file for every of my hard drive partitions (5 of them), with an *.ico file, and it worked flawlessly til today. My config file was:
Code:

[autorun]
ICON=AUTORUN\name.ICO
For example name.ICO was placed in C:\autorun\ and it was called from that autorun.inf. Like I said, everything worked great til today. I might have messed up something with Wise Care 365, and also I have tried Panda IS 2016, maybe it messed with some permissions... I've tried to remove those files, then to put them back, with couple of restarts, nothing worked... Same happens with my flash drives. I'd appreciate some help. If anybody knows what malfunction or changed setting in registry or somewhere else could cause this...

Hi everyone,

my almost new Portege Z30 doesn't start anymore. There is only one white light flashing - the one for DC/battery - but other than that: nothing happens :(

What can I do?
Thanks for your help and support.
B.K

A:Portege Z30- A-1FL doesn't power up anymore

Sorry to hear that?

Portege Z30 is very nice, good looking Ultrabook and as far as I know the notebook?s battery isn?t removable. Therefore the common workaround like removing the battery and pressing/holding the power button 30 sec long isn?t possible.

Anyway, I guess that notebook?s hardware started to malfunction and the fault localization will not be very easy. Usually the notebook engineer would use a special test and diagnostic software in order to find out what could be exactly wrong.

From my point the issue could be related to memory problem or motherboard malfunction and I guess both parts should be checked for possible issues.
