  • Damnit. Think I've killed my M10000

    Any ideas, anyone? My Epia M10000 Nehemiah refuses to start anymore.. it tries for a split second (fans start spinning) then just dies. I blew the main fuse protecting my system yesterday and it's been since then that it's been happening, so I'm wondering if something has gone into a protection mode or something on the board?

    I've had it disconnected from the powersupply completely for an hour and then reconnected it, no joy. It does the same from another PSU, so it seems to be the mobo rather than the PSU.

    Any ideas? Or should I start pricing up a new one?

    Well try resetting your CMOS and/or even reprogram BIOS in EPROM. I know it may sound strange...

      I'll give it a go!

      Hell, I'll wave a turnip over it chanting mystical poems if someone thinks it might help :P

        Split second fan 'spinnage' is often a sign of a busted PSU - I think related to the Power Good signal that the board sends back.
        I'm assuming your other PSU works ok?
        Why did the fuse blow in the 1st place?

          I was rather stupidly reinsulating a soldered joint in the car (on the cable running from the battery to the PSU (but not connected to the PSU at the time, obviously!) ... i dropped it and it fell onto the case of the PSU, shot a couple of sparks and then the fuse blew. Looking back, I should've disconnected it from the battery too

          I don't *think* it's the PSU that's knackered because it does the same thing with an AC PSU I have, which I'm fairly sure works elsewhere (it certainly worked the last time I tried it). I'll double check it, though. PSU was my initial thought too, but it's got me confused now!

              *Onto*! Yeah, if it was into and I'd be fairly certain about what the problem was!

                I was having the same problem the other day. The fans would only spin for a half second then stop. I unplugged my OPUS and let is sit over night, the next day I called OPUS to see if they could help me trouble shoot, and right when I plugged the power back up,the computer started up fine. I know this might sound inane, but you should get some compressed air and blow it all over the motherboard because maybe there's a piece of metal or something causing the motherboard to short circuit (has happend to me before).

                  Thanks for the advice Andy, it seems pretty dead though. I'll give it a blast over, though, gotta be worth a try!!

                  Just replaced it with my old EPIA 800... seems to do the job, although I'm sure I'll remember why I upgraded soon enough!

                    The same thing happened to me not to long ago, and like badass101 said i think its related to Power Good signal that the board sends back. A short in my electrical system stopped my Asus mobo from turning on normally, the fan would just spin for a split second then turn off. To get it running again try connecting just one of the two power signal pins on the mobo to one of the wires coming from your wire from opus, and keep trying till you find what combination works. If you get it working like this be aware that you mobo will not be able to shutdown proparly again, as it will restart no matter what shutdown option you select in the OS.
