Does the motherboard power -on, Is the CPU installed correctly and is it rated for the board? Is the memory seated properly? I know that these are dumb questions, but they must be asked.
What is the Brand ad model of the motherboard?

I have a msi board that is not beeping during bios,what could be the problem ?T


If the motherboard is not posting there could be something wrong with your bios. OR, if you have a problem with a peripheral that might also cause the mo bo to not boot up - in the latter case remove all items except the memory and attempt to post. If it does add items one by one until you come across the epripheral that will not allow the mo bo to boot.
If no post with all items removed then the mo bo is definitely suspect. U can try using a new bios chip but that is not a guarantee that it will work.

No diaplay intel GVSR 845 POST Card error code E9


The Intel D845GVSR Motherboard manual reports the Error code as - "Entering Bios Setup"

If you didn't have display, you wouldn't see the error, this means the monitor has picked up a generic driver and is working. Fo some reason the system is trying to enter the BIOS.

Read the Manual on how to clear CMOS, or after touching metal you can carefully remove the battery from the motherboard for 5 mins. If after you clear CMOS and the board still reports this error, go to the Intel website and download the latest BIOS update,( P20 ).

Make sure you read and follow the instructions on flashing a BIOS update.

This board is very outdated, and even posted on the intel website that intel has -
Notice : End of Interactive Support

How to acsess the boot device menu at post on abit il8 motherboard


.Abit did not add the BIOS post to the manual.

Watch the BIOS post, most all motherboards have the hot-key menu at BIOS post.

If for some reason the hot-key is not reported on BIOS post, then you hit the DELETE key and enter the BIOS, Advanced BIOS Features Setup Menu and set what hardware you want to boot first, under Hard Disk Boot Priority, set First Boot Device

I Am Not Found the windows xp Sound drivers


Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

Check the bios make sure it is enabled.

F-key should be listed for bios setup at first splash screen (name of motherboard) When you are in the bios setup click on CMOS Setup tab at the top. Then look at at via ac97 make sure it is enabled. If it is search your favorite search engine for AC97 drivers.

I don't understand... are you able to POST or not?
Are you sure that both DVD drives that are on the secondary IDE channel are configured as MASTER and SLAVE by using the pins on the back of the drives?

Ram not working with motherboard


Hi

Check if your motherboard only supports only dual channel interleaved memory from the manual because it might be the main issue of your problem. Also DO NOT plug in the 512 MB ram you have over there. If it is ok to have one Slot empty then there should be no reason why it should not POST properly. Before jumping to conclusions that the RAM is faulty. Make sure that you REMOVE any overclocking you might have on the system. Some RAM won't post wihen the CPU clock and multiplier are not standard. Also it could help if you load FAIL SAFE settings in the BIOS until you determine the proper cause of the problem.

Hope that this helps :) (please rate thanks)

PC CHIP Motherboard


Now by PC chips do u mean CPUs? because if so then yes your motherboard is dead but im not sure if it would be BIOS related. There should be a battery somewhere, one like a wristwatch but bigger and flatter on the motherboard, look for it and replace it and test if it works, otherwise it is most likely your motherboard is dead and you need a new one. There is a way of fixing the BIOS if that is the problem. Its called Force Flashing BIOS. I Don't know too much about this but apparently its not hard. Google It and see what you come up with

Hope This Helps

During the POST


maybe your board chip and bios are not supporting any of those plug into your computer. the reason why hangs on POST because it override the maximum limit presented on bios and chipset. Try Updating your bios and chipset. Warning! it must be a exact detail number and serial of updates you must use.

It is very risky but I try it with my computer. Now I can use large capacity of RAM, Hardisk and even PCI 2.0 plug-ins in computer with only 133MHz.
