Question about ASUS A7V8X-X (90-M7A690-W0EAY) Motherboard

2 Answers

Installed new mother board, bad things happened.

Hello, I just installed a replacement motherboard and now I am having technical problems out the @*%. First, I made sure I was grounded, and then I screwed the motherboard into the case. I then hooked up all of the drives, cards and wires. So I thought that I was all set. So I plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard and mouse. I turn on the computor and get to the bios setting page, and then it turns off. Everytime after this, the same thing happens. I take out the cmos battery, and then nothing happens, After that I move the jumper to it around, after going to a couple of forums, and it gets the fans spinning. But that was it besides the disk drives. I made sure that I was grounded while having an open case. Is there anything that I can troubleshoot to maybe get everything working again.

Hi Willy,
Sounds like you have a faulty memory stick.
You did not say if you used your old stick or replaced it with a new stick!
If you are using your old stick or sticks, MAKE SURE they are compatible with your new mainboard.
At one time, you could use a slower speed memory stick and the board would operate but with the memory bus at the slower speed of the memory stick, HOWEVER, this is not true nowadays!
You cannot mix old and new sticks, nor can you use the incorrect stick. Even if the stick fits into the same slot it may still not be compatible.
It sounds like you board is not finishing the POST ( Power On Self Test) and this is usually caused by the ram stick or sticks or the CPU
Check them both with the boards specs.
Try leaving the memory sticks OUT and boot the board without them. If the board starts beeping, this is a sign of faulty sticks or incompatible sticks.
The length and number of beeps will tell you what the problem is ( but we already know that no ram is installed)
If this does not work, remove all the cards from all slots etc and try booting a clean board, if it boots, re-install each card one at a time until the card or ram stick which is causing the problem stops the board from booting.
Also, make sure your power supply has the correct power connectors for the board and make sure the ATX12volt connector is plugged into the board.
Some boards use a 20 pin power connector and a ATX12volt connector, newer boards use a 24 pin connector PLUS the ATX12volt connector.
If you are still stuck, I would suggest you take the case to a reputable repair shop. Poking around a live board can cause more faults then you can fix.
Make sure you have disconnected the mains from the supply BEFORE you remove or install any cards or board components. REMEMBER - modern boards all have a 5 volt supply rail connected to them as long as the power supply is connected to the mains!!!!

Have Fun

Hi,
Assuming that you triple checked to make sure you made all the connections right ( and that the motherboard diagram is not actually printed upside down giving you a backward christmas tree line up for the pronged connections (which happens)... and that you did apply the heat sink insulater goop nice and perfect...and that all your stuff is compatible with each other..
there are two possibilities.
Either you got a bad motherboard or you got a bad power supply.

Good quality power supplies are equally as important as the mobo.
Swap out the power supply. If the problem repeats, its definately the motherboard.

Thankyou and good luck. Please remember to rate my answer *s*

If the monitor is not booting up than may be there is display problem on the mother board. Replace the CMOS battery of the motherboard and then check. If this solution not work then there is technical problem in the motherboard which will get fixed only by expert motherboard repair technician.

Hello! There is a Technical Service Bulletin that addresses the symptoms your Silverado is experiencing. The Electronic Control Module (ECM) may have lost it's ground connection due to rust and corrosion...It attaches to the right side cylinder head (either in the front or the rear depending on which engine is installed in the vehicle) ***Note; When requesting assistance please include engine size...Lets make sure this ground connection is clean bare metal attaching to same...
Make sure the MAF is clean...Spray with electronic contact cleaner which leaves no residue...Also replace air filter (unless you already have)...After the ECM ground issue is cleared and the problem still exists, I'll take it from there...Guru...saailer

Dear Sir, Gigabyte 8VM533M-RZ Motherboard shows 640x480. I can not set to 800x600 or above and permit for limited job. Is there any solution? Please help me. -----Harun


Hello sir,
From the motherboard brand you have, below are the technical specifications: Chipset: VIA ProSavageDDR P4M266A Graphics: ProSavage8 Graphics engine.
The reason you cannot set the screen resolution in Windows XP above 800*600 is because you do not have the appropriate drivers installed for your machine, i.e for the VIA ProSavage8 Graphics card. To solve this problem,you need to download and install the necessary drivers. You can download them from the link below: http://ranger.s3graphics.com/swlib/
Just accept the license agreement and browse through the FTP folders for the S3 ProSavage8 graphics driver(Alt. called ProSavageDDR).
Hope this solves your problem.

Hello,

If this is a new install, make sure the board is grounded to the base with the standoff post. If you do not tighten your screws or miss these standoff, your system will short and not power up.

Good Luck

Hi im Rain.
Ok when installing components inside a motherboard always use a ESD braclet that will ground you to your computer. Failure to use a ESD braclet can fry parts in your system. if you have replaced the cmos battery and it still will not keep yime . The problem may be the motherboard its self. Make sure that you have installed the correct battery for your systems CMOS. If that fails you will need to replace your motherboard.

New RCAS on Technics 1200 Getting a Loud Buzzing Noise


It is not suggested that you remove the ground cable. Performing the mod for the ground by soldering a bridge on the circuit board doesn't really do anything either than remove that buzz/ground hum. You've essentially removed the wire that grounds the turntable cabinet to the earth. The buzz is gone, but now your turntable is no longer grounded properly.

I would suggest replacing the ground cable to it's original state, then attach the Monster cables.

If this does not work, then either there is an issue with the soldering to the board, or the board itself might be damaged. You might want to look at the trace paths to make sure none are lifted, or damaged in any way on the board. Another issue might be faulty tonearm wires or not properly soldered wires.

FYI, monster cables are not good for this purpose. I would suggest the following cables:

Katstu, Are any fans, hard drive or LEDs coming on at all, even briefly? If nothing try the following: -Check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Check the 110/220 voltage slide switch to ensure its on 110 (US). If the power supply has a rocker on/off switch make sure its in the on (1) position. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the computer case power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you get this far your processor or motherboard may be defective, it happens on occasion. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Blinking Power LED ... no other action


Hi switchblade, Some of this will seem basic or even a rehash of what you?ve already done but please keep an open mind. The one thing I?ve learned over the years is never assume anything especially when things aren?t working like they?re supposed to. -The first thing I would do is to check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. It?s possible that whatever caused them to replace the motherboard could have been caused by a defective power supply or vice versa. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. -Try a more basic known good video card, a PCI if you have one. -Again whatever problem caused MSI to warranty replace your motherboard could have damaged your processor or memory. I would have expected a beep code but if you?ve gotten this far without resolving your problem we?re running out of possibilities. -If nothing changes can you tell us some more about the status of the computer or what led up to this? Did you just build it; just install a new part, power problems, anything? Let us know what you turn up and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
