Question about Intel D850MV Motherboard

4 Answers

I can not open my bios

My power supply, RAM (physical memory), VGA card, Hard Disk everything is ok. But when I start my computer I can not open my bios. I have talked to some hardare exparts. They told me that my motherboard is out of order. I have faced a servicing centre in my country Bangladesh. They told me that they dont have equipment to check such a backdated motherboard like this (mainly RD RAM supported). Now what can I do?

Dom you see anything when you turn on the computer? Like the Whattype of board and as soon as you turn on nthe computer you should be rapidly pressing the f1, f2, or the delete button over and over, depending on what the bios key is? It should tell you this too at start up.. If you dont see anything replace the board, as it maybe a fault of the componets on the board and not the bios. Oh and make sure the Microprocessor is plugged in correctly too i seen that problem once before. good luck

If you have tried the solution below, you should also put your bios in "configuration mode" Near the cmos battery (looks like a round watch battery), you will see 3 pins with a jumper (small plastic connector) on the first two pins. With your computer off, place the jumper on the 2nd and 3rd pin, restart your computer. This should force it to go into your bios settings. Don't forget to save your configuration, and then replace the jumper back to the 1st and 2nd pins. Let us know if this helps, Best regards, nightdiver

If windows is starting then download new bios update from Intel website (make sure to download windows setup exe) and install it from within windows. Setup Key = F2 Also you can try: 1. unplug every IDEs , floppys, PCI cards. Only connect keyboard, ram, processor with heat sink and agp if external, powersupply and On/Off switch. Switch it on and see what happens, after switch On keep pressing F2. 2. Also if no display then change you AGP, it might dead also. Hope help

Ihow to boot up and get display and set bios on msi motherboard g41m-e43


Add one item at a time.
First memory, then graphics card.

Plus you cleared CMOS Error Codes, and set the BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

Guess what the default graphics setting is for an MSI G41ME43 motherboard?

Yep, AGP.

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-E43.html

[Wow, I like MFlash, and the solid Polymer capacitors.
Live BIOS Update 5, and Easy OC Switch.

However if the motherboard fails, I'll bet the Integrated Circuit, (I.C., or 'chipset'), that controls APS, is the first electronic component to go.

I would also watch OC'ing. Has to be done in incremental steps. Automatic feature or not. A 20 percent boost is A LOT.
Hardware components have as tendency to heat up.
Watch it as this lowers the 'life expectancy' of the chips.
Heat - 'Kills' ]

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-E43.html#/?div=Detail

Motherboard chipset:
Northbridge is an Intel 82G43. Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801GB part number. (ICH7) You can't see them as they are under Heatsinks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Southbridge_9xx_and_3.2F4_Series_chipsets


Ram Memory:
Two ram memory slots for Dual Inline Memory Modules on the motherboard. (DIMM)

A) UNBUFFERED
B) 1.5 Volt (DC)
C) DDR3 Sdram at either 800MegaHertz, or 1066MHz.

[ This puzzled me. DDR3 Sdram at 800MegaHertz?
Why would anyone want to use DDR3 Sdram at 800MegaHertz?
Seems to me going backwards.

Faster frequency rates.
Low end for DDR3? 1066MHz.
High end for DDR2? 800MHz.

DDR3 is faster in comparison to DDR2 per se, because of the prefetch buffer. 8 burst deep compared to DDR2's 4 burst deep.
(Or DDR's 2 burst deep)

Not because of the CAS Latency, though.
DDR3 has a much higher CL, than compared to DDR2.

(Average CL for DDR3 at 1066MHz = 7-7-7-20
DDR2 = 5-5-5-15. Note* -> A-V-E-R-A-G-E. )

When using DDR3 Sdram at least use 1066MHz, IMHO
The maximum ram memory frequency rate, that your motherboard will support ]

So what manufacturer of ram memory is it, and what is the manufacturer code of the ram memory module/s? ('Stick')

JEDEC sets the standards for Ram Memory.
Voltage standard for DDR3 Sdram ram memory is 1.5 Volts (DC)
So the factory default setting is 1.5 Volts, for the motherboard.

However your motherboard supports SPD.
(Serial Presence Detect,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect )

Point of the above?
If you are trying to use high-performance ram memory; say one needing a slightly higher voltage, and/or has lower CL ratings; then the SPD on the motherboard may make automatic adjustments.
(Adjustments to the parameters in your BIOS Setup)

May take 2 to 3 'Cold Boots', though.
(Turn the computer all the way off. Wait 1 minute. Turn the computer back on = Cold Boot)

I order for SPD to work, BOTH the motherboard, AND the ram memory, have to have SPD feature.
If the ram memory is too low in quality, (Read cheap), it may not have SPD.

Means you have to go into BIOS Setup, and set the ram memory parameters, manually.

[ Delete key to enter BIOS Setup.
Main BIOS Setup menu > Cell Menu > Memory Z > Advance DRAM configuration >
1) DRAM Timing Mode
2) CAS Latency
3) tRCD
4) tRP
5) tRAS
6) tRTP

Don't forget you have to SAVE changes, or it will be as if you have done nothing at all.

If a mistake is made;
Go back to BIOS Setup, and in the Main menu, use the Down Arrow key to arrive at Load Fail-Safe Defaults. IF -> OK is 'highlighted' (Black surround) press the Enter key. If not, use the Right Arrow key, or Left Arrow key, and highlight OK ]

The ram memory also has to be UNBUFFERED.

Unbuffered ram memory is the opposite of Registered ram memory.
Registered ram memory is more stable, usually one clock slower, and more expensive, than compared to unbuffered ram memory.

Registered ram memory is usually used in SERVER computers.

(A Server computer may look at information 2 or 3 times, before it acts on it. It needs to be C-O-R-R-E-C-T for a server computer )

"Cleared the board i believe"

Turned the computer off? Unplugged from power? Pressed the Power ON button in, and held it in for a count of 10 seconds? Then let go of the Power On button, then performed the entire procedure again, 2 more times?

{Clears CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings}

You MAY have cleared the motherboard. It's what I use, and have recommended for years on the 'net. Doesn't mean it always works, though. Sometimes you just have to go into BIOS Setup, and set the parameters back to the factory default settings.

(For you? Load Fail-Safe Defaults )

A) Won't boot:
Because the ram memory is the wrong one, (Or ones); OR, the ram memory is high performance, and BIOS and SPD hasn't recognized it yet.

Remove the graphics card.(Computer unplugged from power. Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED!)
Remove the ram memory.

Reinstall the old ram memory, and plug the monitor into the VGA port, in the I/O area on the back of the computer tower.

Just get the computer working again. After about 10 minutes of fooling around on the computer, ('net?), turn the computer off.
Install the new 2GB.

(IF, just one ram memory module, be SURE to put it in Slot 1.
{DIMM 1} The ram memory slot closest to the Processor )

Leave the computer case open. You may be going back in pretty soon. (Graphics card)
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

Joy?
If no joy shut the computer down. (Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds)

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
If it doesn't work this time, you may wish to try it again.
Sometimes takes 2 to 3 times, before the high-performance ram memory is recognized.

You can also go into BIOS Setup, as mentioned, and physically set the ram parameters.
After 3 times I would give up however, and send the ram memory back. Wrong one/s.

If you get the new Ram Memory working, Cool!
If not remove it, and use the old ram memory.
Might as well get the computer going with the new graphics card, while you wait on the proper ram memory to arrive.

Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?
Sometimes we computer geeks get in a wee bit of a hurry, when we get shiny new parts. Make sure the monitor cable is plugged into the graphics card.

There is another tiny thing; DRIVERS
If you did not use the Installation Disk (CD) first, THEN physically installed the graphics card, you are Wrong.

OR downloaded the drivers from EVGA.

What happens if you physically install a graphics card, THEN come back and install the drivers?
Most of the time a Driver Conflict.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Also sets BIOS Setup to the correct graphics aperture.

With the computer set back to the factory default settings, and the monitor plugged into the VGA port on the motherboard, you can get Windows running, and install, or download AND install, the Drivers.

ONCE the drivers, (And user interface -> Nvidia Control Panel), have been installed, you can then physically install the graphics card.

[Again; If you download the drivers, do NOT forget you have to go to where they are downloaded, and DOUBLE-click on the file, then use the Installation Wizard. (Or double-click on the .exe file)
INSTALL them! ]

Drivers installed, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off. Unplug from power. FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. Physically install the graphics card. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Tip

What is "Virtual Memory" and why is it too low?


Virtual Memory is a setting on your computer, whereas Physical Memory (or RAM) refers to the amount of memory actually installed in your computer.
To understand what Virtual Memory is, one needs to understand what memory does. When you open a file or program, your computer loads the needed information into memory from your hard drive. If you open a second program, it loads when it needs for that one as well, while keeping the other one in memory too. As you open more and more programs, things start to get complicated.
The amount of memory you have in your computer is finite, so it can only load so many things before it starts to get "full." That's where Virtual Memory comes into play. When you open too many things for your Physical Memory to handle, it temporarily writes them back to disk in an area reserved for Virtual Memory.
Think of a juggler juggling three balls. If someone tosses her another ball, and then another and another, she will eventually need to set a ball aside in order to continue juggling more balls. Virtual Memory is like the juggler putting one of the balls in her pocket while she juggles the others.
Now that we know what Virtual Memory does, let's talk about how to set it correctly. According to Microsoft, your Virtual Memory should be set to between 1.5 times and 3 times the Physical Memory on your computer. (See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308417)
If you're getting errors about your Virtual Memory being too low, it could very well be because it isn't set properly. Follow the link above for instructions on how to change that. However, it could also just be because your computer needs more Physical Memory to handle all the tasks you want to do. Think about it. Say your computer has 512MB of Physical Memory. You open enough things so that it fills that 512MB up with data and starts writing to Virtual Memory in order to keep "juggling" all the things you need. Even if your Virtual Memory is set correctly (768MB to 1536MB in this case), that's still not a whole lot. But if your computer has 4GB (4096MB) of Physical Memory, it could easily do everything you need without even having to write to Virtual Memory. So you may be getting Virtual Memory errors, but the real problem may be that you need more Physical Memory.
These days, a computer with 1GB of RAM is ok for surfing the web and using some basic word processing, and that's about it. Depending on what you need to do, 2GB is a good place to start.
Hope this was helpful for you. Good luck!

Need abetter graphic card for acer aspire 5251


in Acer Aspire Series is using Intergrated Graphic Card.
that mean if you wanna Upgrade your Graphic Resolution,
you have to set to a bigger shared memory/RAM for Display Graphic Card/VGA memory from BIOS Setup.
for example if you using RAM 2Gb, and you can make your VGA(Video Graphic Adapter) to 1Gb.
But in My Computer Properties the RAM will Show only 1Gb.
Because another 1Gb of RAM you've use for VGA.
you can check it from dxdiag.
(for opening dxdiag > Click Start > click RUN... > type dxdiag > and Oke/Enter)

No beep sound after switch on my desktop computer but power led of CPU are on and glowing , drive light are blinking and screen is black. Inspite of checking the memory ...


hmm if it not beeping it means that is something wrong with the Ram memory ..check if its right inserted ...and is it is ...remove the bios battery , to reset it ..and reboot...you might have to reinstall cause sometimes when everything appears to be ok .but get blank screen its cause you messed up with the video card driver ...or collor setings...reinstalling will fix the problem if its from there ..but cause its not beep-ing at boot means its not recognizing the RAM memory ...
So ..the cause may be multiple ...either you changed the frequency of the memory ..and its out of its range ...or you have made changes on the memory configuration ...( changed ram or added more...) and in this case its just making a little click like its booting in looping ...if the memory its still working ...removing the battery for a few moments and restarting will get the bios on the default optimal factory settings ..and it will take the memory frequency at automatic values ....Good luck !

My power supply, RAM (physical memory), VGA card, Hard Disk everything is ok. But when I start my computer I can not open my bios. I am try the first two pins. With your computer off, place the jumper on...


hello,

You format your PC from the BIOS?
Try the following to get back into BIOS:
-press del several times during startup
-take a close look at what is written there, maybe you have to access it with a different key like "F8"

There should be a jumper marked "BIOS", "BIOS Flash" or words to that effect on the motherboard. Place a jumper cap over it for about 10 seconds, remove it and replace the cap from where you found it, switch on and then try again.

Also, look for some termonology along the lines of what has been said in the last few posts in the motherboard manual - there should be instructions on how to reset the BIOS. If there aren't, or you've lost the manual, go on their website and find some sort of documentation

best regards,

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


The best thing to do in this situation is to build your machine outside of the case, using the minimum amount of hardware,
Remove the motherboard and using only one stick of ram, the monitor, keyboard and mouse. short the power switch connector on the motherboard with a screw driver for a fraction of a second just to power it on.
If it starts up and gives you a "no boot disk" or "no Operating System found" at least you will know it's working and you can slowly connect everything else one by one to see whats preventing it from booting.
If it doesn't start like that, remove the power cord from the power supply and remove the mother board battery for at least 15 minutes, this will clear the BIOS and set it back to factory spec, now carryout the out of case procedure already stated.

Video memory


1) On board video devices often use main system RAM,
by remapping it into their own address space.

This is designed to be CHEAP not GOOD.

Any RAM used by the video controller is NOT available to
to Windows, thus reducing system performance.

2) Sacrificing system RAM for video is a bad idea, the
system needs it more. Extra RAM in video controllers
is used mostly for 3-D effects and gaming, because
most video systems already have plenty of RAM for
implementing colors screen resolution.

On board video controllers are never fast or exotic enough
to benefit from the extra RAM anyway.

The rest of the system (i.e. Windows) on the other hand
can put any extra RAM to a far better use, by reducing
the need to store transient data on disk.

Don't forget that a hard disk is 10,000,000 times slower than
physical RAM, and when Windows starts running out of
physical RAM, it starts swapping data to disk (thrashing).

The performance penalty is not subtle !!!! Operations that
took a few seconds can take hours and even days.

3) It may be possible to change the balance between
system RAM and VIDEO RAM in the BIOS.
This depends on the motherboard.

4) If you want to drastically improve performance, do
buy a separate video card, for example an ATI Radeon
Saphire and disable the onboard video.

You must make sure the video card will fit in your
motherboard. Depending on the boards age, it
can use one of several types of I/O slots:

Vesa
PCI
AGP 2x
AGP 4x/ 8x
PCI Express

etc...

The card must match the slot.

5) The suggestion that adding a separate video card would
somehow slow down your computer is absolute non-sense.

Tell the guy to read some books, take a few classes, and
keep his opinions to himself until he knows something.

Internal video cards (on-board) have limited capabilities,
and steal system resources. Add-on cards are designed
for performance, by adding resources and off-loading
graphics related computation from the main CPU,
allowing it to do 0ther things.

6) Finally, using the hard-drive to supplement video RAM
is impossible. The hard disk is way too slow. It would be
like hitching a snail in front of your Porche. Perhaps
even a little worse.

Video RAM needs to be extremely fast, even faster than
system RAM. It is often organized using ultra-wide buses
with interleaved addressing for maximum speed. Also,
for this reason, good video RAM is not cheap. A good
Video CARD will have between 256 to 512 MB of fast RAM.

If you run Windows XP, your system should have at between
1024 to 2048 MBytes of system physical RAM.

Less RAM will make your system drastically slower when
doing things like video and image processing.

For VISTA, two gigs is the absolute minimum.


Disk are used for storing lots of data at a slow speed,
and retaining it with the power OFF.

Hard disks can store about 1,000 times as much as
physical RAM, but the access time is up to 10 million
times slower:

RAM can be accessed in 1 nanosecond.
DISK takes 10 milliseconds.

Hope this answers your question
