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

in Windows
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 …

I'd be more immediately worried about the psu. Is it known good? Is it newer or older? If its older, is the input voltage correctly set? I was thinking that the PSU which is older ie period corrected from the Win 98 era (don't know when it came out as I didn't build the PC) might be the cause and …

I didn't find it in MS-6153 manual on MSI webpage (probably because it is for ver:1.0 of the board). green-red-green-red (1-0-1-0) is Test shadow memory . What I would do: 1. remove all cards except graphics …

I'm very stupid with computers so please watch this video I made of what the computer does when I power it on and look at the condition of the motherboard and it's LED lights to try to identify what the problem is and if you have a fix for it, please tell me. 😟 The motherboard is a MSI MS-6153 VER …
