ECS MB, CELRON 800, PC FREEZES AT BOOT

By stonefish ·
I am having a problem with my computer freezing up right when it first boots up... I can sometimes enter into the bios but after about 1 min it freezes. I have flashed the bios with the most current version. I have also unhooked everything to see ifit was memory or some other piece of hardware. I am thinking it might be the pwr supply. Any help is well appreciated. System is an ECS MB with Celeron 800. 512 MB PC133 RAM.

could it be overheated processor? all fans running? open up the case, can you **** air (like, a fan) on the processor, see if it stays up longer than a minute that way? otherwise, i'd be looking for a power supply to swap in for a test...

What model motherboard?

If it is a socket 423 or 478, you may need the 4 pin axillary power connector.

After flashing the BIOS, did you go through the CMOS memory reset process?

Usually, you set the clear jumper,
power up,
Shut down,
reset the jumper to normal.

On an ATX system, removing the CMOS battery with power connected has NO effect on the CMOS memory. The 5 volt standby supply keeps things running.

Another possibility is that your RAM is bad or incompatible.
Try different RAM.
