Lanparty UT not working...


Recommended Posts

I'm not too good with computers so i'm a little lost on what i might do to correct this. I bought a brand new Lanparty UT at Fry's this weekend and stuck a 3400+ DTR cg in it. I have the normal DVD drive and a DVDR drive connected, and an older 80g HD. Whenever i press the power button, the fans spin for like 1 second and then everything shuts off again, same for the DDR Ram led (or whatever it's called). I'm thinking it might be the bios since i have a DTR, but i've seen others with success in getting these to work with the shipping bios. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone around UCLA area that could help?

 

Thanks

Well it looks to me like you are not getting good contact with your heatsink, this happens when the die just instantly overheats.

 

But before you go taking it apart try just one stick of ram in slot one & clear Cmos & see what happens.

 

 

The DTRs seem to have alittle shorter die than the others & you have to check the foot print of the heatsink on the die to see if its making contact.

 

I have seem PSUs going into OVP causing this also.

 

Oh by the way you need to make a sig, read the sticky. It makes it harder to help without the info of your system.

 

Hope this helps it happend to me also.

yes samuria has a point, are you using the stock HSF? it seem to be hard to get could contact with any open die a64 w/ a clip on HSF. it seem the best HS to use w/ DTR/mobiles it the SLK-948u

 

If you were not getting good contact, i could make your comp shut off, because your CPU is overheating.

I'm pretty sure I have good contact. I'm using water cooling and i've tried different positions. If it didn't have good contact, it would shut off that fast? I dont get anything, just a spin of the fans and the all shuts down, monitor doesn't display anything either.

Yes, exactlly like that. You should be able to look at the contact patter and see tho. But the other stuff mentioned is worth a try to.

 

I cant remember if you have flashed the bios but if not you could try hotflashing it to beta bios with mobil support if you dont have another CPU to get it up and running with.

I've tried hotflashing but for some reason i can't get winflash to load on my other computer. I've tried using uniflash, but the second option (Write bios image including blocking...) is ghosted, i'm guessing because there is some sort of bios write protection. The board i've been trying to do this on is my old epox 8k5a2+. Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks

try removing the entire system, put the motherboard outside the case (on some anti-static material of course), plug in only a psu, 1 stick of RAM, the cpu (try a non-DTR also), and a video card. Before turning power on, clear the CMOS jumper for 30 seconds.

Is your power supply old?? Cos my board would not power up. I getting the power led and the mem led and the CPU fan would come on for like a split second then everything but the power led would die. I got a new power supply and it was ok. The manual says any power supply at 300 watts and above. Mine was 300 watts but not one of the mdern ones i.e did not have power factor correction.

 

I might be wrong but try it.
