Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently upraded my computer with an Asrock Penryn1600SLI-110dB motherboard with an Intel CORE 2 DUO E4600 processor. The symptoms are: When I tried to boot for the first time the cpu and case fans started but nothing else happened. The screen remained blank with no post check and the disk drives did not start. I replaced my old mother board back into the case and everything worked fine. I have de-installed the processor to check if I had done anything wrong it all looks OK to me. The socket pins look in perfect condition.

Hi,

If you have recently upgraded your motherboard and when you turn it on, there is no display. You could check the jumper setting of your motherboard.

http://download.asrock.com/manual/PENRYN1600SLI-110DB.pdf

Check this site for jumper settings. Download the manual. Go first to page 11 and find clear CMOS jumper. That will be number 17. Then go to page 24 for the correct jumper settings. Jumper should be on the pins 1 and 2. That's the default settings.

If the jumper is set already to 1 and 2. Clear the CMOS by putting the jumper on 2 and 3. It should be off when you are going to set the jumper. This is to make sure that the settings for your motherboard is set to its original settings.

If you are going to clear the CMOS settings, you will have turn the computer on after clearing it and then turn it off again. Put the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Now make sure that computer is totally off. Uplugged the computer just to make sure when you are doing this.

Note:
To test also the motherboard if it is working, do not connect the other pheriperals such as network card, sound card, and other cards that is not buit-in. Also drives such as Hard Drive and CDROM drives.

Check for beep codes. Short beeps tells you that the Video card is not inserted properly. Long beeps tells you that the memory card is not in place correctly.

Just remove the Video card or Memory card and then place it back again.

Computer should be off as well when doing this.

I have a dimension 2400. the current processor is a pentium 4 2.2 can i swap the processor with a intel core duo ??


After checking the specs of this here : http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm

i can confirm that a intel core duo would not be supported without changing the motherboard, and probably the memory too.
