Question about PC Chips MB PCCHIPS M863G V5.1C w/XP2400+ Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot problem Recently I had to change the resident battery in the Mother Board of my PC (M863G V5.1D), because a message accused: "week battery". But BIOS refused to work correctly, not importing that I have executed the correct procedure I noticed that Clear CMOS jumper was open (normal position - pins 2/3) and I left like this. But now the PC only opens for CMOS and don't retain the necessary configurations for normal doing. I ask if it is necessary to update BIOS or only to reset it. I will be thankful for your answer.

Updating the BIOS could be the solution, but, let's leave that until last - if you get it wrong, you'll stuff up your machine (mobo) for good.
Don't worry about the CMOS jumper, it is there to clear the CMOS memory, but I don't think you need to do that.
Can you get into your BIOS during start up OK? (usually by hitting F8, F2, Del one of these keys or similar during start up, it should tell you which).
If you can navigate your way through the BIOS settings ok, don't change anything you're not familiar with - another place you can do damage, and somewhere towards the end, where you have to option to exit BIOS with or without saving there should be another option like "Reset Defaults" or "Load Optimal Settings" or "Set Last best Settings" or something like that.
Click on this then exit your BIOS. Your computer should restart.
Make sure your new memory battery you put in is up the right way, if it's upside down it could be causing a short - the usual way is positive up, that's the whole flat face with the writing on it - the insulated button side is negative (down).

Press the lid to release the cmos battery, and insert the new the same way.
Restart the pc, and you probably get this message:F1 or F2 for setup, or press the delete button to enter the bios.
You have to setup the bios, like clock,date,and boot settings for your drive.
Look in the manual, for detailed setup configure.

Good luck

Pc Chips M863G V1.5, install a HDD


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfilepcc/manual/m863/863AG-G_15D.pdf

I downloaded the manual for the V1.5 motherboard, and there was no direct, no indirect, answer to your question.

So, you'll have to "experiment".

Mother board freezes on abit logo wile starting....


Hello Carlos,

Did you open the powersupply and check? I have recently worked on a PC with a similar fault and I found that the circuit board is partly charred and couple of capacitors leaking. I advice that you check it and post back..( I can't forget that repair coz I got one hell of a shock while working on it)

Sai.

A match for M863G (M863G15CV22ARV000) is a Mercury Mainboard PVCLE266M. Getting any drivers for this is real tough. http://www.mercury-pc.com/product-detail.php?link=p-mainboards&subtitle=Mainboard&productid=439 Some drivers will download & other will not.

Check the above links & see if any match you're motherboard.
A visual check. If you see the correct board use the link to download the needed driver/manual.
