Question about Intel SuperMicro SUPER Motherboard - 810 (370SEAO)

25 Answers

BIOS not starting

This is what is happening, when i press the on button, my computer doesn't even budge. So after I unplug it and plug it back in, a light on the mother board and the network connections board are turning on and the fan turns. About two seconds later, the fan turns off, but the lights stay on. This is making it so I can't access BIOS or anything else on my computer. I have switched the RAM to a different port, no luck, I have unconnected the hard drive, no luck, I haven't actually switched out the hard drive or RAM yet. If there is something I can do.... Thanks VETTEMAN

    I also forgot, next to a fan there is a plug that is empty, however no cords go to it. My computer is a 766(or close to that) Mhz intel 810 (don't think its super micro however) and it has 128 Mhz of RAM currently.

    Here's my problem: It DID start but only in safe mode. I'd get the normal single beep when starting. Normal mode would hang while loading drivers. CPU temp was < 40 (threshold is 60.) If I held the power button it would turn off. The 3 LEDs on the board stayed on. When I tried to start it up again the fan turned, hard drive LED was on, and the drives seemed to be spinning, but no beep and nothing on the monitor. I would have to let it rest an hour or so to try again before the 3 LEDs went out and the monitor would work again and a beep would come at start. Then I could get back into safe mode. Trying normal mode would start the cycle all over again. Now it won't even do that and I'm stuck with nothing on the monitor no beep. How do I follow the BIOS and see the POST codes? (Assuming I can ever get it going again.) If I could get it going again I want to: 1) disable AGP 4X; 2) disable STR; 3) replace to a different AGP card; 4) change to nVidia GeForce MX440 PCI card; 5) replace back to original power supply; 6) set jumper to clear CMOS and start over; 7) flash BOIS to most recent (it is the 11/21/01 one right now). I'd love one of those PCI diagnostic cards with LEDs to show POST codes. My jumpers and switches are set off to take default ratio/multiplier. Clock is set to 133. 768 Mb PC133 non-ECC SDRAM. 1.8V into AX1600DMT3C. Any ideas? BTW, I have TWO of these KT133A boards. The other is a SOYO SY-K7TVA PRO 1.0 and it has the SAME problem. That is why I put the DFI board in. I was trying to isolate the problem by changing boards. I also changed memory sticks but it didn't help. The only thing I didn't change is the CPU, but as I said, I did get safe mode for a while.

You may have also have shorted out the entire motherboard. The reason for this is that when we walk on a carpet satatic electricity may build up and when you touch a motherboard accidenty while puting/removeing hardware from your machine all the static will short out the motherboard. Therefore all other devices may start but the board won't. If this is the case, then you outta luck. Time to buy a new one.

Check your motherboard manual for correct configuration .There is no problem with your hard drive .you need to check your Power Supply ,Processor and Ram ....if all this working go to repairing shop to check your motherboard,because 3 main components are must to run successfull starting of computer to go to your biox setup i.e display + memory + Processor .

BTW, regarding my postings, I replaced the CPU and it works just fine now.


edGent, I don't see how the errors you get when you click "about" or play card games would give you the idea it's a mobo or hardware problem. I just see it as a software problem. More specifically I see it as a Windows problem. Is it WinXP? You need to tell us this. Sometimes Windows gets so hosed up it takes a major effort to set it right and it turns out to be better to re-install clean. Also, do you use hacked software? Have you scanned for adware or malware? Do you use any old unsupported software? How about your drivers? There is a standard set of things that careful people do to maintain a clean glitch-free system. If you've been following these practices and checked all of the things I mentioned then short of re-installing clean your solution is beyond me.

OK, I found my fix. I flashed the BIOS so that it could support the Athlon XP 2100+, and then I uninstalled all the video drivers and bought a new GeForce 6200 / 256MB DDR2 / AGP 8x that supports BOTH 98SE and XP ( a trick to find 98SE support these days!) It can only use AGP 4X since that's as far as the KT133A will go.

This can sometimes happen if the bios has a feature to turn off if it doesn't detect a particular fan (like the cpu fan). Try clearing the cmos maybe that will reset it if that is the cause.

I had similar problems while I was switching motherboards between cases.

My first step was to disconnect all drives, power cables and ribbon cables, and case fans. System would still power down before BIOS dislay started.

Problem was traced to improper connections of the front panel control wires to the mother board header.

I had an issue like this once and it turned out i just needed to reseat the CPU, a five min job. Try this first but always with your safety in mind re examinining electrical equipment. Also wear an antistatic wrist strap and/or make sure you are earth grounded (for static) before touching any component inside a pc. The fact that there is no boot screen implies it isn't the RAM that needs reseating or that the RAM is broken. I also wouldn't touch the BIOS setting until after you have tried reseating the CPU.

Had problems with this board for over twelve months.System wouldn`t boot,crashes and regular bsod.I was also using the 1302 bios. I fixed all problems by changing the DDR ram voltage from Auto to 2.6 in the bios.System hasn`t crashed since and now boots smoothly.So far no issues

You may have a bad power supply..make sure the 220/115 volt switch on the back of your computer near the fan is put to 115volt selection if you are in the united states. Second your power transformer may be bad. That is the unit that blows out the back of the computer, if a tower its near the top. if your computer is a desk top it may be the left or right side of the back of the desktop. There are many problems in this area we could cover..start with checking that your cables to the harddrive are seated firmly and flush to the harddrive. Besure you have a system on your harddrive..xp/vista etc. Ensure you have your IDE cables pressed flush and firmly into the motherboard. make sure you have power to your harddive or any other cd drives etc. or floppy drive if you have one. Make sure they all have power to them. After you do get it to start. Go into your bios and make sure if you dont have a floppy drive that the selection for your floppy is notNOT selected. otherwise this will cause a no start up...but it seems your computer has a more severe problem. i hope this helps. Installing improperly seated memory will cause this same situation. be sure your memeory chips are in their slots flush and clamped in firmly. dont force them...as they may not be seating correctly if you dont have the proper memory chips for your particular motherboard. a miss match of memory chips..will cause a non start up. be sure your memory chips are qualified for your particular motherboard. and put MATCHING memory chips in the slots. close together , and in proper slots. al

OK i found the solution. You have to reset the jumpers on the sw1 and sw2. try different configurations. you may also have not connected the [pow sw] from the on/off button. and you may need to change the jumper on JBAT1 here's how i configured the jumpers . they're near the battery and via chip sw2 sw1 JBAT1 : : :

Did you recently make any changes to this board or system, like adding new hardware or changing settings in the BIOS? Try resetting the BIOS by using the jumper on the motherboard. If you're not sure of which jumper this is, refer to the motherboard manual.

SOURCE: new asus m3n72-d motherboard bios will not post

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.

How to Reset BIOS on the GA-X58A-UD3R<span style="font-style: italic;">Motherboards often include hundreds of settings in the BIOS to adjust the performance and stability of your computer.

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity The computer will power-down and turn off unnecessary systems, including the monitor, while keeping the memory active so it can start back up quickly and still have all programs up that were being used prior to entering sleep mode. While this is a helpful feature that can extend the battery life of a laptop, it can result in errors where the computer won't power back up. You can usually solve the problem quickly.

Look for a sleep-specific key on the keyboard. It will usually be near the top row and have a symbol of a moon on it. Press this key as some laptops only respond to that command to come out of sleep mode. Press the "Enter" key to see if that will cause the computer to respond. Move the mouse back and forth several times and click the mouse button. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds if the previous methods have not worked. This is another common method for exiting sleep mode for many laptops. It may also trigger a full computer restart which would also solve the sleep mode problem. Unplug the laptop and remove its battery.
Reinsert the battery and then plug the laptop back in.

This should cause a full restart when the power button is pressed. Download the latest video drivers from the website for your video card manufacturer. Old drivers can sometimes cause problems with the laptop's power functions. See if your computer manufacturer has an updated BIOS on its website. The BIOS (basic input/output system) is the firmware that controls the initial boot processes for your laptop. Computer companies will release updated BIOS firmware if they get multiple complaints of boot or power problems. The BIOS interfering with Windows Power Manager is a frequent cause of sleep mode problems. Adjust your BIOS settings by rebooting the computer and pressing the appropriate function key when prompted on start up. It will normally be F1, F2 or F3, and you will often see a message during start up saying to press that key to enter the BIOS. Experiment with the BIOS settings by scrolling through the menu and locating Power Management. Increase the amount of time the BIOS allows before hibernating to make sure it is higher than the the Windows power setting. This can help eliminate conflicts between the BIOS and Windows concerning power shutdowns.

Hello and welcome to FixYa,

Rebooting is simply pressing the power key to turn the computer off.

Wait one minute,

press the start button again and let the computer completely power up.

If you would like to try to 'reset' the computer;

Unplug the computer from the wall,

turn computer over and take out the battery.

Press the power button for one full minute.

Put the battery back in, then plug in the power cord (in that order).

Press power button again and let computer start up completely.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

This can happen on some models. Turn the computer off and unplug the tower. Press the power button to discharge any stored power. Plug it back in and press the power button. You will probably get this message again but let the computer sit. Windows may be working in the background trying to start back up. Let it go for like a half hour to an hour. If it does not start you may have to do a system restore or a repair install to make windows start correctly again. If waiting longer does not work for you then let us know and I can give you instructions on how to continue the repair process.
Hope this helps... Dale

It might be time to, but try these first:

(1) Try rebooting the computer (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del>Shutdown>Shutdown OR press and hold the power button down on the front of the workstation/computer/tower/CPU until the unit turns OFF)

(2) If that doesn’t work, then try clearing the print queue: Start>Settings>Printers>Double-click on the printer>Right-click on the print job(s) and click cancel/delete/purge documents and try reprinting a document

(3) If that doesn’t work, then try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print

(4) Run a Test Print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page
