kaz26 Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 I was testing different RAM modules and was loosening up the timings on this set of (32GBx2) Mushkin Redline that was giving me problems with XMP profile 1, it corrupted some windows files after a couple BSODs. That was a week ago. Yesterday, I decided to try the RAM again with looser timings. It booted the first time, but was glitchy still and had some errors, so I loosened the timings a little more and when I exited BIOS to restart the PC the keyboard lit up, then it shut off and didn't turn back on. I then hit the power button to turn it back on and it did the same thing. The keyboard lit up for a second, then the system shut down. Sometimes it runs for 3 seconds, sometimes it shuts off almost immediately after I push it. Keyboard light changes from Blue to Green, then shuts off. However, something changed a bit when I swapped the CPU, see #4 below. What I have tried: 1.) Removed CMOS battery, laptop latter and power cord for several minutes after holding down the power button to drain the remaining energy. This did nothing as far as helping the system. 2.) Removed RAM and tried starting the PC. It did the same thing, Ran for 1-3 seconds and shut off. 3.) Tried starting the system without RAM or Hard Drive. The same thing happened. * 4.) Swapped CPU - This is where something finally changed, however, not by much. It now runs for about a minute, the keyboard light changes from Blue to Green to Red and back to Blue where it stays for 1--15 seconds, then it shuts off without every showing anything on the screen. - - - - - I don't know what this could be or what I should do next. I'm leaning toward this being a corrupt BIOS, but I am not sure and that's why I am asking for help with this. Laptops: 1.
