Emonster 600 won't boot up
\015 My emonster 600 was working fine, I turned on the PC and the light keep blinking fast and no signal to the monitor. The cooling fans are running but it appears nothing else is. I unplugged the machine waited and plugged it back into the outlet, it immediately started the same thing without touching the power button. I tested the PSU, I had 10.5 volts on the 12 volt side and 3.7 on the 5 volt side. Do I need a new power supply or should I try resetting the CMOS? Thanks for any help.unit will not boot-up, fan runs (loud) but monitor reads 'no signal'. Have read about possiblily changning out the 'psu' or 'processor' sounds intimidating!! processor is AMD 64 Anthlon. If anyone can give layman instructions it would be appreciated...also is there a risk that all my data is wiped-out?? This started after I logged out I went to turn-off computer last night, and when I checked computer this morning--monitor read 'shutting down windows' it was like the computer was 'frozen'. so I had to turn it off manually, and ever since it will not boot up. any help is appreciated!\015
You should not loose any information seeing that all information is held on your hard drive. As for changing out the processor, it seems pretty intimidating but is rather simple. When you have the side of the computer removed and can see into the tower you see the CPU (processer) fan. To the left side of the fan you see a little metal prog/bracket. Insert a flat head screwdriver into the slot and press down gently and then use leverage (just a little) to pull the bottom of the bracket out from it's holding. Once this is unhooked the fan will come off very easy. Next... at the bottom side of the square holding the processer will be a brown tooth pick like pice of plastic. Pull it gently down (twardse the bottom of the computer housing) from the left hand side then up to the right. Pretty much a fulcrum... the pulling down lets it come loose from its holding then pulling it up (directly to you from left to right) will unseat the processer. Once you have done this the processer will come out very easy with two fingers grasping on to two sides of it. When you get the new processer it should come with the "goop" (the silver stuff you see on the bottom of the fan and the top of the processer. Clean the bottom of the fan of the goop and apply fresh goop. Then apply a light coating to the processer. Place the processer back into it seating and repeat all steps backwards. If you need more help feel free to ask... I have an old E machine in my stack or old puters that I can do a play by play with and take photos of the steps and post the links on here for you if need be. As for your power supply, if it has that much of a loss I would sudgest replacing it.

I have been having some boot problems into windows with my p4s800 mx motherboard. I have purchased it with a 3,0 ghz cpu and put it together yesterday, after which I tried to boot it. It works on lets say 6/9 times, but the 4/9 times it wont boot into windows. After the boot failure, the system automatically gets into bios and tells me that the ''system hung'' and that I should adjust the frequency of my CPU. I am currently not overclocking the system and have the same problem when I try the 1,5
