Replaced motherboard now shutdown problems

Hey
I have replaced the otherboard on my Acer Aspier sa85 right with this one
MSI 945GCM7-F 945GC LGA775 CORE2DUO FSB1333 2xDDR2 667 4xSATAII MATX

got new RAM for this obviuosly, now it starts and stops again, then replaced PSU with 550W new one. It goes for longer now but stil will shut down after i start to use any programs (sometime last longer than other times) generally if i leave it on wth no programs running it will stay on for ages.
I think its getting too hot, so i out in case fan and replace thermal gel, still having same issues???
What the hell is going on, all anyone can tell me is its getting too hot?

Check your motherboard manual to see the voltage suppied to the new RAM. Check the Ram specifications and note the required voltage for it to operate correctly. In a lot of cases the motherboard will not supply enough power all the time and can cause shut-downs and restarts.
If the RAM need more voltage than the motherboard supplies, replace it with RAM From the qualified vendors in the memory section of your motherboard manual.

Brand and model of acer aspier am5641-b5560


If I understood you well, the XP OS installed on WD IDE HDD belongs to another computer, in this case you cannot simply install it on your Acer computer and expect it to boot without problems because the hardware is different. What you can do in this case is a fresh Windows installation.

Please, may you tell to me what is ACER ASPIRE M1641 motherboard name ?


Re: Sata driver - ACER M1641 desktop PC « Reply #8 on: March 28, 2009, 04:26:23 PM » I have discovered the previously unknown model of the motherboard in this system. I have searched and searched and could not find it anywhere. With the actual model of the motherboard you can get supported drivers right from the manufacturer, the same way you could if you purchased a standard motherboard like asus or gigabyte.

I have determined this motherboard (at least my acer a1641-e1712a) is a MICROSTAR board. A link to a board with compatable drivers can be found http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1499&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&cat3_no=2 .


The board is a MSI board using their mainboard search. My criteria went as follows...

Mainboard -> Intel Platform -> Socket 775 Chip -> Nvidia Chipset -> Nvidia MCP73 Chipset

That narrows your down to 8 or so mainboards, all of which use the same sata,audio and onboard video. My above link http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1499&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&cat3_no=2 will take you to a board where you can get SATA, AUDIO and VIDEO DRIVERS.


Hope this helps guys!

Acer Aspire SA85 stays on Acer logo


Hi bob,

Usually system stops at the startup screen or the startup logo, when it finds some fault in detecting the IDE drives(ie,your harddisk or cd drive), if you dint get any get stuck in the logo, you have to see what happens at the background by clicking on f1 key or f12 or TAB or some key to show the activity rather than logo.....

After seeing the error we can conclude or decide about the problem, but when you were not able to see the screen after pressing any key as specified in your manual, Or it hangs after the LOGO screen, this must be problem with your harddrive, try changing the harddish or try connecting once again by removing it...


Enjoy Rate!

I need driver or CD system for Acer mainboard E661FXM


Hi arunsak,

Is your system an Acer Aspire SA85? Oftentimes giving the model number of the system rather than the board can sidestep a lot of trouble.
