is the power switch a momentary or a push on push off switch?
The board requires a momontary switch. If it is the push-on\push off type the system will see that as a force shutdown request.
Try push it twice (on\off) within 3 seconds.
If that does not work, try 3 times (off/on/off) within 3 seconds.
If the switch is held ON more than 3 seconds, it system will shut down.
Hi, thanks so much for the reply. Yes, actually, I did notice that pressing the power button 3 times would work a lot of the times. Unfortunately, it did not work this time. However, while trying this out again I did notice that just before powering down the following LED code lights popped up:
Bit 2: off
Bit 1: Red
I looked it up and it says it's:
Initializing a chipset component
A browsed around to see what this means, and it looks like it might mean that some hardware has malfunctioned. Is there anyway to determine which components are bad? Would it be the mobo?
