Default Reset BIOS

What about starting the computer and then quickly switching the psu off, and then starting it up again. It saved me from several unsuccessful overclock attempts. Good guide though, thanks.

Does the computer seem to be working for some seconds and then it shuts down (i.e. the CPU fan spins for some seconds and then the PC turns off by itself)? This can be several things but for now you should try resetting the CMOS memory.
For me it was a faulty power supply.

Thumbs up Right On!

I had a call from a friend of mine with exactly the same problem that this tutorial addresses. I had company over for the Charger game and was involved with cooking dinner and visiting with my friends. I knew from my computer repair classes that I had taken that there was something that I couldn't think of aat the time to tell him.
This tutorial is exactly how I was taught in my classes. It was just because I don't use them on a daily basis I couldn't explain that to him on the spur of the moment.
You rock Hardware Secrets. I will call my friend tommorrow and have him bring his box over to the old workbench and see if we can't resolve his issue.

Question i read the article and will follow the later steps, but.....

my computer was hit by lightning either through the dsl line or a bad surge protector. the status led lights up on the back of the power source when plugged in, but the computer will not power on. do the same practices apply to acts of nature?

thanks for the nice guide.

It really helped me out today.
pulling all the cables and only keeping the screens and power pluged in did the trick for me today.
but i'm a little curios why the usb ports interfere with the turning on process of my pc.
Would be nice if somebody could explain that to me.



Hope u guys get what i mean.
english is not my first language
Greetings Iru
