Re: Windows98SE PC shuts off on its own after powering on

in Windows
Caps on last photo (near PSU connestor) are OBVIOUSLY leaked and needs replacing, which is likely to ceuse that issue. Also, one of the wires on ATX connector is damaged (oragne one, bottom right side on last ohoto) I was already notified on the leaked ones, and already knew about the exposed but …

The photos you mention are OBVIOUSLY from the old motherboard and PSU. The new photos don't cover the entire new motherboard. Looks like bad caps too though. Riiiiiiiiiiiiigggghhht!!!!! beacuse I never mention that I bought a new exact same model as a replacement which has bad capacitors then …

I would suggest that you strip the machine down to one stick of RAM and a video card and run Memtest. Do I run Memtest in DOS mode?. I'm assuming that your machine has a working floppy drive, and that you have a good blank floppy disk. If you have both of those, that program will write the image to …

Try pressing DEL to enter setup as it says on the bottom of the screen and then save settings and exit . On the next boot, the checksum should no longer appear. Once that is done, you will likely still need to access setup again effect some changes in order to configure the boot drive, but testing …

I've replaced the CMOs battery with a new modern one as well as the power supply with a EVGA 450 BT. But …

Well, it was apparently very affordable (was 25$ to 40$ when new) and didn't review disastrously [1]. On the plus side, it seems to be OK at handling mainly 5V loads. So assuming it is still in working order and in-spec, it should be a lot better than your original one . [1] https://www. …

The battery from another board of this vintage will probably also be dead (unless it was changed less than 10 or so years ago). I don't believe it is causing the shutdown issue, but wanted to point that out as as something to eventually address. As for the PSU voltages, first you should consider …

What modern PSU brand model will you be using ? Will it be new ? Sort of. It would be a EVGA 450 BT from 4 years ago. This guy used it for his build and that's where I got the idea of using a modern PSU and will use the model Tech Tangents used just to be sure it would actually work. Well, it was …

A 400MHz Celeron should run at 2.0 volts. 2.6 volts seems a bit high, as in 30% higher than nominal. I haven't checked the datasheet to see if that is "tolerable", but it definitely won't help thermals and may impact stability as a result. Also, the CMOS battery is dead . Finally, and possibly most …

That clear CMOS thing didn't make sense. PSU is bad, replace it. May be the motherboard too. I sticking with the motherboard that I already replaced. Replacement PSU that's modern so nothing would go wrong (hopefully) might be a go. What modern PSU brand model will you be using ? Will it be new ? …
