    SN45G doesn't start

    Hello,

    I just turned on my SN45G Shuttle, the first time the power light flashed on and off and then nothing happened

    I turned it on again, seemed to be starting up ok so i left the room only to come back tot the same problem, the power light had gone yet there was clearly power (fans all on incl. graphics card).

    This problem has stuck, tis almost as if it's died! I have never altered the BIOS or FSB or anything like this. What's the problem?

    Thankyou, David

    power up again then check to see if a red light in the right front corner IIRC comes on then goes off

    if so its the CPU overheat warning

    lol ok,

    no red light, although there is a green light on the motherboard which lights up when the mains are connected, yet when I turn on the shuttle the light goes out after a second

    that shows there is power going to the mobo, but im not sure if the light is meant to go out or not. On the mobos which i have seen that has that light, its on all the time power is connected even if the board is off.

    ok

    so any other ideas what the problem is? I made it myself and it has worked for the last month perfectly, i don't think it's a processor overheating problem. I suppose i'll have to use another pcs components and replace them individually into my cube until it works, unless of course it's a mobo problem... bloody waste of money!

    So you haven't changed anything at all since you last started it up and it worked?

    nope, not a thing - i have never touched the BIOS

    (apart from changing the fsb to 166 so the processor runs at the correct speed of 2800), but that was the first time i booted it up about a month ago

    It was working and then he turned it off and turned it back on and it didnt work. He says he didnt change anything so i dont think its the bios jumper. Also the same with the graphics card power situation, what could change if he didn't mess with anything?

    My graphics card is a Geforce 4 MX 440

    I am not sure what PSU it has

    My friend had a similar problem with the same shuttle, apparently he fried his CPU. But he messed around with the fsb and buggered it - for this reason i made a specific point of staying clear from the BIOS and overclocking.

    My graphics card is pretty old so I doubt the PSU consumption is anything too big, not sure though.

    Your psu will be the stock 200w shuttle psu which should be more than adequate for what you have in there. Its only really the 9800pros and above that would cause problems.
    Tbh i think your mobo is borked for some reason, best to RMA it.

    Tbh = To be honest

    but what does RMA mean!?

    i'm guessing tis buggered and it means along the lines of get a new one

    do you think dabs will give me another one - paid by credit card

    cheers


    bloody Pc's, never had a problem on my powerbook
