Question about Intel D850MV Motherboard
I can't start my motherboard bios, no beep, not bios output (black screen). The power supply is ok (i tried a new one). Can it be the processor ? the memory or the mother board itself ? Thank you for your help. Frederic
If its not a brand new motherboard, id un-plug it, pull out the small battery and switch the reset jumper to reset it. If that doesnt work, check to make sure its not infact a graphics card problem.

I can add some more info but no solution. I suspect the bios as the culprit. I have 3 computers with same fault ocuring during XP pro install. All occured during the IDE driver install; yet they all had SATA/floppy support. I have managed to monitor the memory being accessed and read on the board yet no further activity on the board. I can not get access to the bios to change anything & cmos reset achieves nothing. I have stress tested all the individual components in other machines and they are fine. Given the mobo has activity on it I have put them aside for a rainy month when I can get in at chip level....oneday. All I can sugest is if the fault occured during an XP pro install where it hung up mid way(usually around IDE drivers) then do not just turf stuff in the bin. The mobo is the tricky part to this problem. Yet there is a common link. I have a Saphire SLI board and an Abit NF7S board that also have this problem. All occured during XP pro SP2 install at aproximately the IDE driver part. The only common links are XP pro SP2 and silicon 3112 sata chip. Also all boards fail to switch off. You have to turn off pwr at the mains to disconect. This may not help with the mobo but should save you getting ripped off on PSU, MEM,VGA trades conned into buy ripoff traders.

Often no beeps from the motherboad can mean faulty memory. If you are running two sticks of RAM remove one and see what happens. If it still doesn't boot then swap the sticks over and run the other one. Next check your video card, then your CPU then as a last resort the motherboard. You can do all this by swapping parts with a friend's computer. As lomg as he has the smae CPU. Personally I'd put my money on the memory or Video card. If the videp card is a AGP it's OK to try it out with a PCI just to see if it works. If the video is onboard check your manual to find out how to disable it. It's usually a jumper which is great but if it's via the bios just put the card in anyway and see if the system finds it by itself. BMW

One of the LEDs that plug in to the MB is shorted bringing down the power supply. I found out the hard way.

For a new board you will need to set the jumper near the cmos battery.....these normally are switched off to save battery life if the product is on the shelf for a long while.....check the manully that comes with the board to ensure that you are changing the right jumper..

This is sure due to bad bios / cmos, try to reprogram the flash ic with appropriate bios file yourself ( if u have programmer) otherwise bring it to service person who has the programmer, i think the problem should be gone.

Like bmwrider said: remove/replace your ram, try single rank (chips on one side of the stick) and double rank ram (chips on both sides of the stick) and see if that works.
Mobo's are funny things so if this works it doesn't mean your ram is faulty and it's very well possible your computer will boot up when you put your old ram back in some other time.

I had exactly the same thing happen, i came to the conclusion after testing cpu ram videocard that it is a factory inherent fault with the motherboard something to do with the 8 pin 12v connector not throuputting power, i just got my 2nd one in the mail (the pc shop tested it too n agree with me) and much to my dismay it has the same fault :( soultion send it back n buy a different brand

I have this problem and every time I remove the graphics card and wait 3 seconds and then plug it back in and then unplug the power from the unit, plug it back in, the unit will boot back up. This goes for both PCI-Express and a simple 32mb PCI card, which means its not MOBO specific for the slot not working, and its not specific to the card, so something else on the MOBO? I have been so frustrated with this problem since I built the system but now its getting more frequent.

Try replacing the motherboard battery

Reset your Bios by pulling the jumper on the motherboard and replacing it. This will re-set everything up till the point it stopped working. other computers you can just pull the battery and wait a few sec's before putting it back in

If you don't already have a case speaker hooked up to the board, you might want to connect one since there isn't an on board speaker and you will not hear error beeps otherwise.
Also, if you have another non-phenom AM2 processor handy you should really update the BIOS to latest release. Many late model Phenoms will not work on motherboards that have earlier BIOS releases and you will not be able to post. You should then choose "Set Optimized Defaults" and save the bios without any changes then shut down (not reset). When you power on again it should post and you should be able to get into the BIOS.
A third thing you can try (after you get a case speaker hooked up) is using a cheap pair of ddr2-6400 RAM to get the board to post so you can get into BIOS and change the voltage to the correct settings for your RAM if it requires a higher voltage than the bios expects.

hi, i am pretty sure this is a bios problem! but it could be video card or monitor. put it all back the way it was-when it worked-then reset the bios-unplug the pc-take out the battery.(about the size of a coin) there should be a three prong jumper, near the battery-and move it to the two prongs that has not had the jumper on it-then push the power button- this is to discharge the power that will be stored in any components on the motherboard- the pc is must be unpluged- then wait 60 seconds and put the jumper back and the battery(see if the battery is dead first) new ones are about 4 bucks, and they last a long time. then boot up the pc!-you should also set the bios at the correct values, as it will use default settings. some hp and others default settings are fine. on custom pc's setting values will need to be set for optimal settings, for the particular hardware. if this fails, try a new video card and check the monitor also. if you know the model # and brand, you can go to the website,then download the manual. this will show you the location of everything i told you to look for. if you need further help, reply. please rate this solution. good luck! one last thought motherboards can fail, from any number of things. hope this is not the case on yours.

It's not your processor.
Processor run only when motherboard is good. If your motherboard have no power then change it a new and this kind of motherboard are not repairable.
