You are sure you didn't try overclocking with that software first? You have verified in BIOS that all clock speeds are minimal/normal? Sure sounds like it is powering itself down because of some bad clock setting.
Good morning, Thanks for responding,
Positive. All that I did was start the software, I was attempting to check Temps and Fan RPM's as I suspect that I have a FAN that may be getting ready to fail. I barely saw the software startup when the PC powered off.
Also yes I also verified in the BIOS that the Clock Speeds are at the minimal speeds. I also selected the PF-Key (don't recall it now) that selects to go back to Factory Defaults, then saved & exited. But it still just powers up, displays logo and then powers off and repeats.
Unfortunately I'm getting no assistance with the vendor...
What fan? What temps and fan speeds does BIOS report? Anything unusual? Will it stay on for long just in BIOS? First I would try re-seating all connectors, cards and memory just in case.
Besides the fan for the power supply and CPU fan, my case has two other fans. One on the rear to blow hot air out and one on the front to pull cool air in.
I recently when on vacation, when I returned and powered up the PC the FAN I had mounted in the front of the case was making a bit of noise. I suspected that it wasn't turning as fast. The BIOS shows that the RPM on that FAN has dropped down from 2200rpm to 1800rpm. So I have bought a new fan and will replace before it fails. Temps are all still within normal ranges. Processor is running around 113 IOH is around 130,,,don't recall teh remainder off the top of my head, but they were all normal temps.
PC will stay power up just fine while it's in the BIOS, but as soon as I exit the Bios...It powers off.
Yep already tried reseating all cards, connectors, etc.
Even tried unplugging power supply from mother board for about 30-minutes, then plugging back in. Made no difference.
No I haven't tried that yet. I was hoping someone from Intel would expand on what they meant by the "Jumper"
I'm not clear on which jumper and what needs to be done. And the Intel Tech I've been dealing with hasn't answered that yet.
Sounds to me like both links are suggesting the BIOS Recovery procedure and are referring to the BIOS Configuration Jumper per this document:
See 2.3 Jumper block here:
Only proceed with this if you are comfortable doing BIOS firmware upgrades. Otherwise seek help and confirmation of this process as a fix from Intel.
That's what I had thought too and I've already download and printed the docs.
I asked a friend to burn me a CD-ROM with the Recovery Bios on it. In fact he just gave me the CD-ROM about 10-minutes ago, so I'll be giving that a try tonight unless Intel comes back with something else to try this afternoon.
Thanks again for the help, I do appreciate it...
Hope that gets you going again.
