My main PC started to reset and freeze on the white on black boot/ bios screen without any warning. I had to then reset it but it wouldn't come back on until I left it for an hour or more!
This increased and the length of time I had to leave it powered down had to increase before it would boot up again but then the life expectancy became shorter and shorter!
Now it has failed to reboot and is totally dead!
I run Windows 98SE, the gigabyte motherboard and AMD athlon processor are 3 years old but all other components are new to within 6 months to a year.
I have installed brand new memory and PSU but still no reaction. The only point of reference I have but the gigabyte website does not advise is there is a small orange light that comes on the motherboard when I press the power on button, but that’s it, it stays dead!
Can one of you great boffins out there advise, as I'm getting fed up?
Have you got ALL the connectors plugged in on the motherboard?
Som CPUs require a square 4 pin plug in before firing up.
Q. Should I have hard drive plugged in when I try to reboot with just basics? A. With HDD unplugged should boot and give unable to find HDD message on screen. Now proved is not HDD dragging down PSU voltage
