40 gb hd
Dvd-rom
cd-rw
Diablotek 550w power supply Samurai case


which worked recently stopped working. In CMOS it said windows needed repair and i need to press r to repair. that didnt work so i cleared RTC ram memory as the manual said to clear all my data. upon repluggin teh power supply cord it turned on. so i tryed turing it of by holding the case switch in the front for 5 secs.

and it wouldnt go off so iturned of the power supply. when it was on it wouldnt go into cmos and my screen was blank. when it was on i tryed ejecting a CD drive but it wouldnt. my friend has the same Power supply and it malfunctioned

Hi,

We need a little history on the system.

How long was it running,days,weeks?
Did windows install correctly and run good?
Do you have a case speaker connected and are there any beeps?

It would be a good idea to test the power supply if you have a volt meter or can get one I can explain more, or if you have another psu you can try.

I would like to test the psu first because the of the cd door not opening indicating that its not getting power.

XP was installed just fine and running for at least a week, then i installed service pak 2 from softwarepatch.com
at first it went half way through and then there was an error and could not go back to the original configuration. so i had half of service pak 2 installed. later i tryed installing service pak 2 again and it worked, but my computer was not running smooth due to service pak confusion. then my brother inproperly turmed off teh computer resulting in an error that required me to repair windows. but my computer didnt want to read the Cd so i cleared teh RTC memory thinking it would help. but since i did ive had tis problem

1 Unplug the computer
2 remove the battery
3 Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1&2 to pins 2&3 for 10 seconds and replace on pins 1&2
4 replace the battery
5 power on the computer and press the delete key during boot to enter bios
6 Set your boot order to floppy 1st,cdrom 2nd, and hdd 3rd
7 Under the exit menu in bios load the bios drfaults
8 put windows cd in
9 save and exit bios the system should reboot to the windows cd.

because of the failed sp2 install I would reformat and the install windows.
After you get windows up and running and install the chipset drivers report back and I will give you instructions on how to safely install sp2.

Let me know how it goes

i did steps 1 to 4 but as soon as i would plug the power cord into the wall it would turn on and the only way it would turn off is by turning the PSU switch off. The problem is not the PSU, i tested using a friends PSU and i had the same problem


is maybe the cases on switchi s stuck?

To check the case switch follow the wirers to were they connect on the mobo, remove them and see if the computer starts if not the switch is bad.

To turn on the computer without the switch connected touch the two pins with a screw driver and release it right away, this should power on the computer.

Then follow the rest of the steps.
