Question about Abit VH6 Motherboard

2 Answers

Don't understand? HI, I have a pentium 3 processor in an abit vh6 motherboard.... it was giving me boot problems before... first I would have to keep switching it on and off just to get a correct boot..... but it would eventually boot..(assumed it was the cmos battery?) then I decided to add more ram in the ram slots.. did so successfully, but when I went to reboot I get nothing!!!!!!!!! no bios, no display, no post beep..( which I had previously before the ram incident) and now a little red light flashes by the ram slots.. not sure what this means, or how to fix it. can somebody please help me???????????

I had a P3 Supermicro board that had 3 RAM slots, and when I added an extra RAM Module, it had the same problem as yours. Checking the board specs, it can only have RAM in two of the three slots. It was something like, 'If you have one module, it goes in Slot 1 (closest to processor), if you have two Modules, put them in Slots 2 and 3. You can not use all three Slots'.

That P3 must be really at the end of its life. Mine lasted 12 years. Then I used my work P4 until the motherboard went on that. Now I have a Quad Core i7 and am very happy :>)

Take the extra ram board out
when a system fails to boot properly, it indicates a problem hard drive (HDD)
cmos batteries just keep the program for the chip operational and nothing more )
take it in to a computer repair shop for a proper diagnosis
if it is the hard drive ( has all of the operating system , files and folders ) replace it with a solid state hard drive (SSHD) as it has no spinning disc to fail

The old Abit TH7 RAID mobo, ay?

http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/925_2.html


The Socket 478 motherboard uses an Intel 82850 Northbridge chip, and Intel 82801BA Southbridge chip, for the motherboard chipset.
(ICH2 is 82801BA)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

(Intel's term for their Northbridge chip is MCH. Memory Controller Hub,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics.

{The Abit TH7 RAID mobo has an Accelerated Graphics Port expansion slot, for a graphics card. AGP)

A graphics (Video) card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or Integrated Graphics,
is Not high-speed graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

As you can see in the chart on Wikipedia the FSB support for the Intel 850 chipset (Intel 82850) is 400MHz.

In conclusion, you know now that you can use an Intel Pentium 4 processor,
A) That fits in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Has a maximum Front Side Bus frequency rate ('Speed') of 400MegaHertz. (FSB 400MHz)

GD8 motherboard


The GD8 mobo spec says that the bopard is only compatible with P4 and Celeron D processors so no you cant swap it! Generally the Athlon 1800+ is a better processor but it depends on the mobo, BIOS, RAM setup etc.

Two tone Siren from MoBo/over heating CPU


at first go to the bios. then default the bios setting. then check the system monitor. if the cpu is too hot you can see it. or you can change the processor. never over clock the processor.

Processor


Hi Don, the Celeron is a knock off of the Pent4. (Cheeper version CPU). Could be a bios glitch but not worth flashing the bios.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That could ruin you're whole week!

Enjoy!
