Diagnostic leds...

Recommended Posts

Pratically my pc doesnt start anymore, damn :rolleyes: . Strange because just some hours before it was working fine. So i checked the diagnostic leds on the mobo and i noticed that it stops with 3 leds still bright. I suppose those diagnostic leds must be all turned off if it's working fine, am i right?

i checked the manual but it's not very clear about this. When 3 leds are still on means the cpu or ram have problems? right now im here with n old pentium II... hope it's nothing serious...i dont understand whats not working, help plz

Hello,

 

Make sure than all 4 power connectors are plugged into the board.

 

Remove 1 stick of memory and place it in the top orange slot.

Clear the CMOS for 10mins

Then power the pc and see what happens.

Reseat your video card and check all your power connectors.

 

If a normal CMOS clear does not work for you, try a clear like this and follow it exactly.

3 led's indicates a RAM problem not cpu so much, did you move the pc about at all when it stopped working ? might be worth re-seating components as tasr suggested, the video card, and the cpu aswell.. the 24h clear has worked for me in the past it deffinatly worth trying it out.. i know people have alot of problems with cruical ram, do you have any/can you get hold of some to try it with different ram, that would probably be a wise thing to do :)
