I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice i am a novice at home built systems.


to the point my sons computer shutdown completely i checked the power supply and it was dead no prob so went and got a thermaltake 430 watt ps which is way better than the stock ps.

After plugging everything back in the computer would not boot so i just unplugged the the connector to the video card and the computer booted with no problem its an older ati agp video card.

If anyone has any clues or ideas i will be greatly appreciate it.

Try:

unplug power cord
remove battery from mobo
short CLR pins for 10 mins
put battery back
plug power cord in

How does it go

Thanks i will try that today.


Now ive noticed that when the video card is not plugged in only through the mobo the fans on it run but as soon as the i put the connector directly on it its shuts down the whole system.

Thanks giving your theory a shot to day.
