do you mean that it takes too long for the POST to complete or does this part function ok but Windows isn't starting? If it's Windows, the number of variables grows significantly. Where exactly does it hang.
Good day folks, OK, I am working on a PC that delays in powering up.
The system is a Gigabyte GA-8IK1100 & P4 running on XP Pro.
There is a G force 5900 Video card that is failing. The fans do not function and the temperature gets overheated. My multimeter also measured the voltage a little above 5 and 12 volts. The card takes 12 volts and a power error message also displays during the OS boot up.
I advised the client to buy a power supply of 480 W. I installed it and other areas of performance improved.
I eliminated the main components as the problems. I also changed the battery for CMOS.
I took out the video card and put in mine and it worked instantly, but the problem still persisted after a couple of boot ups.
That problem? A delay in booting up.
The case wires work, but it could be a short in electricity from the front case to the motherboard. I cannot get into that part of the case itself.
OK, your turn folks.......
