Help please. PSU issue? Other?

by KKSMMH / April 25, 2004 2:39 AM PDT

I have an IS7 motherboard (800 mhz FSB) but have PC3000 Kingston ram. Tonight I (stupidly?) tried changing the bus speed to 667 (or something like that) to run in sync w/the ram, but the computer almost immediately rebooted. When it was restarting it locked up so I held the power button down for a few seconds to power it down. I reset the CMOS by switching the jumper and when I tried turning it back on I get nothing...there is a green light on the Motherboard that is lighting up, all the wires from the case are still connected and the wires on the front power-on button appear to be okay, but it doesn't power on.

I'm kinda desperate here. Any ideas?

Try unplugging everything for a few minutes, let it sit and then plug back up an retry. Sometimes the machine needs a time out.

"Be sure to restore the Jumper"

If you left the jumper on the 2-3 position, then it will not boot. You have to move the jumper momentarily and put it back. This jumper shorts the CMOS to ground, which restores it to factory settings, but you have to move the jumper back to normal.

Tried that. Thanks. Ended up taking it in to have someone look at it. Getting too frustrated.
