Hi,

An ASRock K7VM3.motherboard is a socket A (462) board specifically for the AMD processors. To my experience, these boards (due to age and period of usage) are prone to:

  • bulging/leaky capacitors of the high current regulators near the CPU;
  • the heatsink tends to be dislodged/misaligned causing overheated processor;
  • loose memory slots causing defective memories.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Computer won't do anything, keyboard does not light up, screen is blank


So there is not so much as a BIOS message on screen? Any beeps?
If there is no life at all, you have a CPU/motherboard failure. This may be direct or indirect (e.g. no power to MoBo). Check your connections.
Otherwise, your boot device may not be operating. This is usually a dead or disconnected HDD. Check that it is plugged in. Does it get warm? Can you feel any vibrations from it? It should spin even if your cpu is dead but MoBo is alive.

When powered on unit only beeps. continuous beeping- approx 1 every two seconds. nothing boots up at all, only beeps! Tried removing memory thinking it may be a memory issue but that was not the issue!...


Hi

If you have a Gigabyte MoBo then the CPU fan has stopped running.
Open the casing side cover and see if the CPU cooling fan is running or not.
If it does not run, the go into BIOS and disable "HDD S.M.A.R.T. Capability" in Advanced Bios Features
also set "CPU smart fan control" to disable in PC Health Status
OR
This may be a power supply problem.
The voltages of the power supply are going out of limits.
change the power supply and see.

Fan running, HDD light solid, no display


I assume there are no post codes (beeps)?

Pull everything including the video card, leave only the RAM and CPU installed.

Try powering it on, You should hear a long beep, then some short ones to tell you the video card wasn't detected.

If you still don't get any post beeps, try resetting the BIOS, and re-seat your RAM.

If it still doesn't post it could be a system board mounting issue, bad system board, bad RAM, bad CPU, or bad Power Supply

Well depending on your bios version, it could be an array of things.

First try removing the video card and re-seating it.

Then re-seat the RAM.

If the problem persists re-seat the CPU.

Let us know the exact model of your motherboard so we can better troubleshoot your problem.

When you turn on your computer the system does a POST (Power On Self Test). If the POST sees an eror it will tell the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and the BIOS will beep a code or display a code that indicated the problem.

Different motherboards contain different BIOS versions. BIOSes use different beep codes for problems depending on the manufacturer.

No post to bios on new pc build


FIRST....... Make sure you remove the stock thermal compund (pasty/sticky stuff) from the bottom of the heat sink as well as from the top of the cpu.........

Second APPLY some ARCTIC SILVER 5 compound-ust a thin coat of it over the top of the cpu......use an old credit card.....keep it ff the sides and bottom though......it's important not to use too much........one little tube will do anywhere from 3 to 5 CPUs...!!!
(stock thermal paste/thermal compunds......**** BADLY and can cause a cpu to burn up)

reseat (properly) the cpu and carefull

Now make sure you're 24 pin or 20+4Pin Power connectors are connected, as well as your fans..........disconnect all your SATA Devices, and remove everything but the video card , CPU, and fans.......Now it should post (if all your jumpers are set correctly...........


IF it still doesn't post, remove the video card and reboot.

If it doesn't beep at all......... You have one of 2 things.........A DEAD CPU, or a DEAD MOBO

P5NT won't boot


I went throught this and it is really silly. The P5N-T motherboard has a problem with some of the new energy efficient CPUs. The fix was to insert an older CPU and upgrade the bios and then it would recognize the new CPU. If you happen not to have an older 775 CPU laying around (most people do not), it might be easiest to return it and get a different board - or maybe the store can upgrade the bios for you.

Not posting


Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
