American Megatrends - Warning In TIO mode

Q: American Megatrends - Warning In TIO mode

I have a Tiny m720 PC and I just connected it to my new Lenovo ThinkCentre TIO 23.8" Gen3 Monitor. I have started getting this error with two loud short beeps on startup: American Megatrends - Warning: In TIO mode, please use the adapter shipped with Tiny PC or TIO that has higher power rating. How can I disable and get rid of this? Tried restoring default BIOS settings and also re-flashing BIOS by no luck. Attachment: Screenshot. Update: Contacted Lenovo tech support. He asked me to hit 'Esc' (which is not even an option on that screen) and was in a hurry to end call.

Preferred Solution: American Megatrends - Warning In TIO mode

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.)

Your computer seems to be failing at the POST (Power On Self Test). Your motherboard may be defective. I have requested this to go to the Hardware forum for more assistance.

When I start my computer up. I see the following message:

What does this mean?
 

A:American Megatrends

This means that the hard drive is about to fail. S.M.A.R.T is a utility that monitors the health of the hard drive and reports any potential problems, like an early warning system. When it says "S.M.A.R.T Status Bad" This is not a good thing. Does it give you an option to bypass and get to Windows? If so backup your important data.

Ok, so before you reply, please make note that I didn't build this pc myself, it was custom built in a company by order. I don't know a thing about inside of computer. Of course, I know the main parts, but repairing or tinkering, nooo.

Pc specs:
Intel i5-2400 3.1 Ghz Quad Core
8 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 550ti Graphics Card.

The thing is, in my opinion, this pc is properly cooled and built, because I've been having it for almost a year and I've never had this problem before.

So okay, I got back home and turned on my pc. And I noticed a problem. My video was slow. Videos on youtube were slow and choppy, I tried like moving windows and their movement was slow. At first I thought its a video card or monitor problem and I tried rebooting my pc. When I pressed restart, before booting windows, the computer shows the window:
American Megatrends

(Computer info)

CPU over temperature error!
Press F1 to continue setup.
Is it really overheated? Because I've never had this problem before, I didn't had it the other day I was using it and I'm using it a lot. What to do? I really can't just open up the case and see the problem, I'm not that experienced.
 

A:American Megatrends - CPU Over Temperature ERROR

Why can't it be overheating? Things do break, or come loose, and they can get dirty too.

Download HW Monitor and see what the CPU/Core temps are, for that matter check all the temps. Best would be to post a screen shot of HW Monitor.

HW Monitor: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

If the computer is truly overheating then it will need to be opened up to see why.

I know that one of my USB ports is damaged and has been for awhile. Could this be causing it? If so, how would I remove it? Do I have to take the computer apart? Is it something I can do on my own?

A:American Megatrends message unknown

OK, you are running the system overclocked. Not too much however it shows both ram and cpu running faster than normal. It is probably the board failing however the very first thing I would do would be to return ALL settings to stock. Clear RTC [cmos] to return settings to stock. Once you clean RTC, pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical. Now disconnect any usb device ie printer, scanner, external drive, etc.

Pw ON and see if the board will successfully complete POST.

Remember there is NO safe overclock. All overclocking entails some degree of risk.

Hello, experts!
For the past few weeks, I've been seeing the AMI screen everytime I turn on my computer. It wasn't like that before, so I have no clue why it's showing up now. I pressed f1 and f2 numerous times and went through every session, still I cannot find the problem of why it keeps appearing during startup.

Since I just received a new computer this April, I'm not very familiar with the new AMI then I was with Windows XP. Instead, I used screen-shot to show my AMI screen. I hope this will help!

My computer is working fine, excpet for one minor detail...

My Asus P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe doesn't like my new 4GB of 800MHz ram. The ram is fine. XP 32 bit runs fine with only 2-3 GB in use, but Vista Ultimate 64-Bit is terrible, running at least 5 times slower and maxing out the processor and freezing a couple of minutes just to open Fire Fox. I am considering buying a new mobo, but I heard there is another way.

Some people have gone into their BIOS and enabled an option called "Memory Remapping," which fixed the problem. The catch is: My BIOS doesn't have that option for some odd reason... Surprise, surprise after my cellphone provider had to send 2 SIM cards to me for the phone to work and my External Backup HD had failed just a couple of months after I bought it(Goodbye 100+ Gigabytes of data).

I checked the manual that went with my mobo, and the bios version in the manual and on my computer were EXACTLY the same! Though, the menu in the Manual had many more options than did the one on my computer. So, I go to Asus's website and download the latest official (not beta) driver. Then, I pop in the Asus CD that came with my mobo and tried to run "Asus Update". Every time I run this I get an error message: "Unable to create NT driver... Read more

A friend of mine came to me with this problem. He has an American Megatrends motherboard and can't get it to boot past the Checking NV RAM.. part

here is what is on the screen when it freezes
American Megatrends
AMIBIOS
TYAN TSUNAMI AT V2.00.01 012520001800
Intel 440BX AGPset

P II, 400Mhz
Checking NVRam..

then down at the bottom of the screen it says
62-0101-00999-0010111-071595-440BX/GX-51830001-5

What we have done:
Switched PCI video card to another PCI slot
Disconnected everything but the floppy/cd/harddrive
Reseated the RAM, switched RAM slots, and tried different RAM modules with ones that are known to work.

He says 1 time it made it past checking NVRam (where it counts the RAM) and then froze when it first said hit del to enter BIOS.

Edit: He also remembered that when he first booted he had 3 RAM modules in and all it would say is American Megatrends with the logo and that was it, so he removed 2 and left 1 and thats where we are now.

2nd Edit: When I asked him what happens when he tries it with no RAM he says "nothing, it beeps".

Anyone have any ideas on what to try next? Could it just be that the motherboard is bad where the RAM fits?
 

A:Problems getting to POST on American Megatrends MOBO

Alright - I just recieved word that it now works. Which leads me to believe that even though it appeared we had the RAM set properly it wasn't.
Now it boots into Win98 and just gives the usual errors when you don't have proper drivers installed and such, I'm going to let him work on that on his own because I think he has a pretty good handle on getting that set straight.
(he pulled this PC together from scrap parts so even getting this thing to run is a plus for him)
I'll post back with any other motherboard related problems that might crop up.

hi folks. good day to you all. my name is max. i can install windows and manage basic troubleshooting related to software without any problems. a couple of months back i installed windows xp on my friends computer and it was working fine but a month after installation, when he booted the comp up, he would get the startup options msg (safe,normal and so on) instead of windows booting up normally. when he tried to boot it up in any mode,the windows xp loading logo would just appear and windows just kept restarting. i thought it might be a software problem ,so i made a fresh install of xp and it was working fine . but now once again the same problem seems to have occured. this screen pops up when he starts the comp. i have included the image he sent me (its a bit blurry but you can make out whats on it). i searched about it and as you can see in the image, the problem seems to be about CMOS settings. now, from what i have learned so far after researching about it is that its either the CMOS battery that has lost its charge, died, or maybe its just a CMOS (or bios? not sure) settings problem. can you guys please take a look at the image and tell me what exactly is wrong and what steps i would have to take to fix his problem? thank you in advance.

Here's the problem: When I start my computer, I'll get a black screen with a bunch of text with "American Megatrends" as the header. The screen is unusual, and on the bottom it says "CPU fan error!, press F1 to continue." If I simply press f1 and ignore it, my computer eventually shuts off, and restarting my computer doesn't get my display back, I have to reset my cmos.

Things that I've tried: Now, I had this problem before, and my computer doesn't have a cmos switch, so I had to take out the battery for a couple minutes, and that worked.
Today I woke up to have the same problem. Only this time, when I took out the battery and put it back, the problem persisted.
So I tried entering my system setup and set "CPU fan speed" to ignore, that still did nothing.

So I'm aggravated, annoyed and helpless. Any help would be appreciated.

I changed monitors on an XP computer and had it working fine until I changed the resolution to something this computer OR monitor just couldn't resolve.

Now the monitor is in a state of balck screen except for in the middle saying Auto Detect is on (Analog) the also shows "Cannot display this video mode", Optimum resolution is 1920x1200 60hz

The screen cannot be taken off this no matter what I tried.

Appreciate any help, thanks.

So over the last few days, my Samsung laptop has been putting itself into standby mode without any warning. And I for the life of me cannot figure out why.

All options to turn off the computer have been set to never while it's plugged in, so it's not that. I suspected it was the laptop overheating for awhile, but I've got SpeedFan running and with the latest shut down the core temperatures were only around 55 degrees Celsius. I've seen it run up to 70 degrees when I really pushed it to investigate how hot it got, and that didn't prompt any response at all, except for the fan speeding up, and the laptop cooled down pretty fast when I let up on what I was doing.

Is there any other reason the laptop would shut down like this? I'm not the most computer smart in the world when it comes to the internal workings, so any help would be appreciated.

Potentially relevant things:
Samsung laptop NP350V5C
Radeon graphics card
Intel core i7
Windows 8 OS

Hello,

Shadow Defender is great software.

It protects my system from permanent infection.

However, I have one warning.

Remember this - if you download malware and tinker with it - meaning allow it to run without any type of restriction, then it will perform all of its malicious activities during Shadow Mode. Plus if you are signed in as Administrator, then the malware will be able to run with same privileges. Shadow Mode is a fully virtualized environment that does not prevent malware from running nor stop it once it is executed!

So if the malware is designed to grab data and transmit it back to a C&C server, then it will do so. If its a cryptolocker variant it is going to encrypt files, if it's a virus it is going to replicate, etc, etc, etc.

There are things you can do while running in Shadow Mode to ensure solid security:

1. Use Guest Account
2. Use Microsoft's DropMyRights
3. Use Sandboxie
4. Once you download and run malware, then disable network/block connections
5. Use Blue Network's AppGuard (if use Sandboxie need special configuration; with Shadow Defender/Emsisoft no special configuration needed).
NOTE: Configuring AppGuard not so easy. If not done correctly will cause big headache.
6. Use Windows Parental Controls as an anti-executable (requires configuring some folders)
7. Always use your AV/Firewall in Shadow Mode

I allow malware to run in Shadow Mode with Administrator privileges (my system is completely exposed, ... Read more

I have WinXP and my computer restarts or enters sleep mode (if sleep mode: computer can not be 'woken' from sleep) with out warning every 15 mins.

Also when it restarts it comes up with 'Windows Has Recovered from a serious error' with some files that are effected...

Any Help?

Hello Adam. It appears to be a Power Management issue in Windows XP. In that case, you might find the following article useful.

Hello Bleeping Computer.
 
I'm running Windows 7 Home, 32-Bit
 
This morning I was infected with a fake FBI warning message:
 
"This PC (Windows 7, 32-Bit) is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below..." 
 
I powered down, then attempted to reboot in Safe Mode.  It wouldn't restart in Safe Mode, instead it restarted in Normal Mode, the screen went blank white, then redirected to the same fake FBI Warning message.  I'm unable to proceed beyond this fake FBI warning screen.
 
I have access to a clean PC and external USB flash drive, and with your help I'm ready to follow your detailed instructions to remove this infection.
 
Many thanks in advance!

hi, i am having trouble wth my computer. i don't know much about computer. actually if i want to restart it, it keep showing me "Warning! Now system is in safe mode. Please re-setting CPU frequency in CMOS setup." but if i plug off the power supply cable, and put it back, the warning was gone. but, then if i wanna restart it again, that warning will appear again..
so could anyone help me what should i do with this problem ?

thank you...
 

A:Warning! Now system is in safe mode. Please re-setting CPU frequency in CMOS setup.

The battery on the motherboard is probably dead. It's a coin-shaped and -sized silver metal lump on your computer's motherboard. Pry it out (make sure the computer is off and make sure you don't break anything) and take it to your local electronics/computer/watch store. They should be able to give you a replacement.

Hi everyone

I am having trouble with one of our laptops. I was running a few virus scans the other day as I realized it there was Google Redirections, fake virus security centers, and security center pop ups in the system tray. A fake virus center kept popping up as a program on the computer, and the internet would not work when this was open.

I tried to run more scans but nothing would open, no programs, no task manager, etc. in order to fix this. Nothing was working, so I shut off the computer. This was a big mistake as when I went to turn it on, it will not boot. It goes into an endless reboot state and flashes a blue screen for a second, not long enough for me to read, before it goes back into rebooting.

None of the safe mode options work, and Last Known Configuration option does not work, the computer just endlessly reboots and will not start up. I really need to get this fixed, as we purchased a warranty for the laptop, but they will not work at all.
I have tried everything and nothing seems to be working, the computer will just not boot up.

I burned an ISO of Puppy Linux after reading about this online and I could boot to that from the CD, from there I could see everything was still intact on my hard drive but it still will not boot windows. I thought about getting an external hard drive enclosure to take the stuff from that drive and put it onto another computer until I can get this fixed.

I am running out of things to try and hope someone can help. thank you.

A:Endless reboot, fake security warning, safe mode doesnt work

Could you please tell us what your OS is, main antivirus program , and exactly which scans you were running (have tried to run).That might give appropriate information to know what to suggest for you

My Wife is a 'die hard' American Idol fan - she will not miss a single show. When she is unable to watch one, she records it on the DVR and watches it the next evening. However...... she didn't set the DVR correctly this past Sunday ( !/22/12 ) and recorded the football game instead - now that made her 'double po'd' - LOL!!!!

So I've been trying to find a way to get a copy of that single episode. I started searching with the Idol site, then anything else I could think of, but to no avail. I just need to find a legal download, or purchase a DVD of that episode. Any ideas?

Thanks, Keith

Hi,

Got the Amer. Greetings gift attachment. Windows XP is running very slowly. I've done several different scans, which usually indicate a trojan. But it's a different trojan each time, so obviously bad stuff is being reloaded every time I log on.

Thanks in advance!

I have a Gateway system running XP Pro SP3. I received an email purportedly from americangreetings.com. It said to open the attachment to see the greeting card. The attachment was a zip file name e-card.zip. I looked inside the zip file and stupidly managed to accidentally run the exe (named e-card.exe) which it contained.

I immediately started getting a bunch of error messages. I don't recall them precisely, it happened to fast. There were a number of "cancel, retry, continue messages" all of which I canceled. There also messages saying something about "no disk" or "no drive". Then I noticed that the "Norton Internet Security" icon had vanished from the tray. I tried to restart the computer at this point but it was taking forever so I eventually turned off the power. When I turned it back on it rebooted and everything seemed fine except that Norton had not started. I tried to start it manually and it wouldn't start.

I used the Norton removal tool, then downloaded and installed the latest version of "Norton Internet Security". It now starts at boot and everything seems fine, but I suspect that I'm still infected. Something certainly happened that shouldn't have and I don't want to just proceed as if everthing is okay. I'm posting a copy of my hijack this log. I also have a Mcafee Root Detective report which I can post if you think it would be useful. Thank you for your help.

A:American Greetings virus?

Norton has detected and claims to have resolved the [email protected] virus. It's described here: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-022520-1425-99&tabid=2

It describes more or less exactly what I've seen. That page lists a bunch of files which get deposited in various shared directories. I found those files in those directories on my machine, when I right click on one it vanishes, presumably it's deleted by Norton.

So it appears that things are under control, but I'm still concerned there may be other things that haven't been resolved.
