    Hi, I have a problem with an "old" Clevo X8100.
    As soon as I press the power button, the blue lights on the keyboard light up for 1 second and then go off immediately.
    It does so for several times, then when I can get it started, it happens to shut down while loading Windows or even inside the operating system.
    I bought a more powerful 330w power supply two days ago thinking it was a current problem as I upgraded the components but I did not solve them.

    I have install vbios nos of svl7 but the problem persist.

    My upgrades are:
    Ram 8 to 16 Gb
    Gpu 280m to Gtx 680m

    The upgrades have been done more than 2 years ago and all worked perfectly but it's about 2/3 months with this problem.
    What can it be?

    Can you help me please?

    Thank you for your asap respons

    Regards.
    Simone.

    Are the fans spinning out of control?

    In fact, however, the first time I turn it on the PC does not start, the caps lock numpad leds and blockscorr continuously flash and the fan speed rises to maximum. I have to switch it off with the button and turn it on again.
    What do you think?

    That behavior is indicative of hardware failure, it's just hard to pinpoint which component. Could be CPU, GPU, or main board.

    Might want to try to clear your cmos. Old machine, might have a dead battery. I hear they are good for 10 years though. But since its dying right at the push of the button, it's probably a CPU problem since I belive the CPU posts first. Could be a bad ram module too?

    Does it do this first thing in the day and then act normal or if you power it off and then within a few minutes turn it on does it do the same thing?

    Sadly older cards are dying left and right, the 680M is one of them. You might habe to put it into the oven so you can use it for a couple of weeks and buy a new card.

    Your statement may sound familiar because, if I remove the power supply from the plug it asks me to reset the bios and the date and time in the operating system (when I can start it) is reset. do you think these shutdowns could be caused by a depleted battery?
    I tried to remove the ram and test it one by one but the problem persists.
    How can I understand if RAM and CPU really work via software?
