Hi I just bought a new motherboard today, a PC Chips M848A socket A. I intalled it as per manual.When I switch it on it starts then switches of in about 8 seconds. I put it in a case where I had an MS 6147 board (an original build I made years ago).Can anyone please help me with this problem ? Could it be the power supply ? as it was working OK last night on the old board.
Regards,
George

Do you get any beeps or anything before it shuts off? Have you checked that all of the parts are seated correctly ie, CPU, RAM etc.?

Hi and thanks for your reply. The problem was that I did not have the heatsink sitting correctly on top of the processor. I reinstalled windows 98se. Now it wants to do scandisk every time I boot it up ? crazy eh. So far so good, but how to stop scandisk ? on each boot up ?

Check the "Task scheduler" and see if it has scandisk at boot-up in there and if it's not there check the start-up menu to see if it's there. We should be able to sort it out easily enough.

As long as you shut down windows properly it should not scan at boot.

Have a printing problem. My computer will let me print two documents then it will say that the machine has performed an illegal operation and I have to shut the machine down in order to print again. Any ideas.
