Hi Guys...I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i have. I have recently replaced the motherboard in my computer which has given me this headache since the day i put it in...
When i press the power button on my computer it will power up as would be expected, but it wont boot up right away. I have to press the reset button at least four or five times before the machine will begin to boot up properly...heres what i've done to try and find the source of the problem...
1. checked all the wireing
2. tried a brand new power pack
3. tried different memory chips
4. updated the mobo bios
5. set all the settings in bios to "fail-safe"
6. tried another hard drive
7. replaced the battery on the motherboard
All of this has made no difference, the problem still occurs. Once the machine is actually up and running its fine. It very rarely crashes out. If anyone can shed some light on this problem i would be very greatfull
Here are my system specs...
Amd Athlon XP 2200+ CPU
Asrock K7VT4A+ Motherboard
512mb Memory Chip
256mb Nividia GeForce fx 5600xt 8x Agp Card
Sony DVD/CD writer combi
Samsung 80gb Hard drive
