    DH55TC - BIOS not loading after first boot

    Suraj_Mathew

      I'm having a system with DH55TC motherboard (2010 model), i3-530 (2.93 hz) processor.

       

      ISSUE FACING

      1. i power on my system. It boots the BIOS followed by the operating system.

      2. I can do what ever tasks i want in my operating system... no issues.. everything working perfect....

      3. I do a Shutdown / Restart operation

      4. The system will not boot up again (not even BIOS will get loaded). The mother board LED is on, and only the CPU fan spins for 2 seconds... then after 3-4 seconds...again the CPU fan spins for 2 seconds.... this action is repeated... no beep ... no bios.. no display...

       

      If i start the system the next day (atleast after 12+ hours), the system will boot up without any issue..... and everything is fine as in Step 2.

      Now, if i do Step 3, the issue mentioned at Step 4 will come into action.

       

      SELF DIAGNOSIS DONE

      5. i tried starting the system by removing the RAM (thats the only card installed in my system. No graphics / video cards). Ideally we should hear a beep sound..right.... but its not giving any sound... and no display / no bios.... The mother board LED is on, and the Step 4 action is in action.

       

      6. I removed and replaced the CMOS battery after 5 seconds, and tried to start the system. Still no beep / no display / no bios.... The mother board LED is on, and the Step 4 action is in action.

       

      If i try to start the system the very next day.... As said in Step 1 and 2, everything is working fine.

       

      Has anyone encountered / heard of such a strange situation..?

      Any help will greatly be appreciated.

       

      Thanks in Advance.
