Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Possable failing bios or dead mobo

\015 I have a tiger tyan mpx with Amd 2000 mp. I used 2 get 2 beeps on boot up. Then I lost my keyboard and got a 211 error on boot up so I put put on a new keyboard. Both usb and ps2. So couldn't get in to bios. I saw a jumper on for some reason it looked to be on the a speaker control panel. I found this odd so I removed it then I got no video. May be the thing over heated when I took it out of the server case and put it in a Mid ATX case. Anyone here have any sort of clue?\015

Answers :

The Tyan MP boards do not support legacy USB. You have to use a PS/2 keyboard to get into the bios. If possible, I would clear the cmos by popping the battery out or finding the jumper to clear it. Then try to access bios again from ps/2 keyboard.
\015\012These boards also have compatibility problems with many video cards. Check Tyan's website for a list of supported cards if you are not using onboard video.
\015\012As long as the heatsinks are properly mounted on the CPUs with thermal compound, the fans are operating normally, and air is flowing through the system, the chasis that you run these boards in shouldn't matter.
\015\012If all fails, try removing pci devices, external peripherals and drives one at a time to try to eliminate possible causes.

Power failure. This machine fails to power up. Have followed Dell's web based diagnostics. The 'Flea power' (indicates 3.3V rail is alive) green LED is on. Have replaced PSU with brand new replacement, and removed all peripherals inc RAM DIMM's etc. Mobo appears to be 'dead'. no BIOS fault code LED's light as would be expected. I would be grateful for a schematic of mobo so I can look for failed power up components, or a source to purchase a replacement mobo. CPU and RAM appear to be OK. All fan

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time. First we had a visual (video), but when we enter bios, the computer would not freze up, but simply just reboot itsself, and it would reboot everytime by itsself, no matter where you were at from 15-20 seconds after booting up. So I removed the CPU/FAN and Heatsync and they were covered with dust, I cleaned the dust off, and plug it back in, and now when I turn it on, the fans are running in the back, b

Motherboard failure Hi I have been told that my motherboard in my Compaq Presario , which is 2 .5 yrs old and has not been used for 1 year , has failed. Can someone please tell me how a motherboard can fail. I bought a new monitor and plugged it into the PC and I got "No Signal" on the screen for a few seconds before it went blank. The monitor is OK on my other PC. I have been quoted 400 AUD / 600 USD for a new motherboard. Is this a reasonable cost? Thanks
