    *All the fans are spinning and everything in the case is lit up, but there is no activity. Help!

  • dan lassiter Feb 17, 2012

    I know the CPU is properly seated and that it's clear of grease. (The install had the grease preset on the top of the chip, no application was required from me) I also know it's compatible (It's an AM3 Phantom II processor, which is the correct chipset). I do not have a spare processor, nor am I sure about how to get the processor and CPU fan off without damaging something.

    so at this point the CPU is probably dead. to get the cpu fan off, there will either be a lever that can be flipped to release the pressure, or you will see a little metal clip that the tip of a standard screwdriver will fit into - slot the screwdriver in, and pry the metal clip away from the heat sink - it should just pop right off. there is a lever under the heat sink, along one side of the socket. lifting this will release the pins on the CPU and allow it to be removed by lifting it straight up.

Usually this means that the board is powered on, but that the cpu hasn't been initialized. make sure your cpu pins are clean of thermal grease and that it is properly seated. make sure your board is compatible with the cpu and if you can get a spare (known good) cpu to boot the board with, see if it starts, and see if you can update the bios.

again, basically the issue is CPU related. at some point you may have to just RMA the processor since it is a possibility that it might be DOA. good luck!

A885GM-A2 new mother board will not boot up screen


You are missing the driver for the monitor. It should have come up but sometimes all the drivers are not or do not activate. If you have a disc for it run it and try to activate the monitor. It could also be the type of hook up you have. Make sure the cable is connected in the right port and that it compatible with your monitor. Might try the user friendly controls on the monitor. Make sure the contrast or black and white settings are not blacking the monitor out. Then there is always the possibility that you have a bad MB. Everything can work and it have a bad monitor driver as a matter of fact I have seen a lot of new and especially refurbished boards that were missing drivers. Also if you have the disc for the monitor you may have to run it again and it should program itself to the MB. Sometimes that has to be done. I have two monitors an Acer and a Dell and every time I have a hard drive go out I have to reprogram the Dell monitor. Try these things and let me know what results you get.

Cannot find the SATA hard drives for my ecs 915PL-A2 mother board. All connections have been checked


Did it just stop? Or is the a new system?
Did you check your BIOS settings?
ECS is not known for excellent quality - if you have a bad board hopefully it is still under warranty.

The problem is with your RAM. Try installing the RAM in another slot. Install your AGP card slowly. I can assure about your motherboard yet you have no problem without assembling. Keep informing.

915PL-A2: no post, no beep, no keyboard lights


You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.

Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
Good luck!

Well you really need to get a manual for that. Check the website and download the manual with that model, for sure there is one.

I guess you have connected all the connectors there incorrectly so better look for a manual.
