    DQ45CB and  power management problem



      My DQ45CB is updated to the latest BIOS, version 0133. Every 10 - 15 minutes turns itself on for 5 seconds and then turns itself off. This happens until I unplug the power cord.
      When this happens I see that the AMT status red LED blink for 2 minutes and then turn off.
      Can someone explain me why this happens?
      In the BIOS when I try to enter in the options Intel ME it prompted me for a password that I do not know, I tried to reset, but nothing to do .
      Thanks in Advance

          Hello Gianluigi,


          I understand that your system keeps rebooting every 10-15 minutes and you believe it may be related to the AMT.


          In regards to your question, the AMT user is admin and password is admin if they where not set before.


          At this point, please enter BIOS thru maintenance mode ( moving the BIOS jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3) and clear all passwords, then load the defaults with F9 and then press F10 to save and exit.


          If the problem continues you can disscard that is related to the AMT and start looking for hardware problems.

          Please note that it is normal that the AMT LED is blinking when it is not configured.

            No, my system does not reset every 10-15 minutes.
            I'll try to explain.
            When my system is powe off after 10-15 minutes it power automatically on for 5 seconds then power automatically off (it stays on for 5 seconds).. This is repeated every 10-15 minutes ...


            I hope I explained and excuse me if I don't speak English very well.


            Thank you
