Question about Biostar M7VIG-400 (M7VIG 400-COMBO4) Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer turns on but no Video and doesn't go through POST.

I am working on a computer for a friend. Someone built this computer for them about 3 years ago. It started giving errors about a fan failure. In an attempt to see what was wrong they opened up the computer, took off the heat sink and processor and put it back on. Now when you turn the computer on, all the fans run but it doesn't give any video and it doesn't even sound like it goes through the POST process. Is the processor fried or what is going on?

    I tried taking the CPU fan off of the processor, removed the processor, reinserted the processor and CPU fan. I hooked everything back up and turned it on but got the same results as before. What next?

  • craigw371 Nov 11, 2008

    I unplugged everything from the motherboard. The only thing that was left was the power supply, RAM and CPU with fan. It turned on but didn't have any video. So not any different than before.

    Yes, I had a different stick of RAM to try. It failed in the same way. I will pursue getting another CPU and keep you posted.

    I am having the same problem! But I don't just wanna go out and but a processor before I know which one would be compatible! Would any processor be compatible with the motherboard or how does this work? I don't know cuz this is my first time dealing with something like this! I tried ALL of those things and the exact same thing is happening to me! Exactly the same thing! Only one of the two buttons stay ON in the front too! the red one! Both fans turn on and I think the Hard Drive is working fine too! I already tried it in another computer! I checked the RAM and it's not the problem! If ANYONE knows for sure what the problem here is... please tell me! :O Contact me at! Please!

Before you "fry it" try taking the CPU fan off of the processor, remove the processor, reinsert the processor and CPU fan and see what happens.

    Unplug everything from the motherboard, Any pci cards, no Hard drive or cd rom. The only thing to be connected is the power supply, RAM, CPU with fan and video card (if not on board). Ket us narrow this dow befor we say we have a bad processor.

    Do you have a different stick of ram to try. If that fails (if you still have the same condition) then you ether have a bad mother board or CPU. Since the fans work that would take the Mother board out of the equation.

Using friends computer want to get to my fb

If I am understanding the question correctly you would like to access from your friends computer?

You can access Facebook from any computer by:

Navigating to
If someone else's profile show up, e.g., your friend's profile, meaning it says that your friend is logged in log your friend out, or before you do that post a funny status about your friend and then log him or her out of Facebook.
Once your friend's profile is logged out you can then successfully log into Facebook with your account using your username and password.
REMEMBER TO LOG YOUR PROFILE OFF when you are done using your friend's computer otherwise he or she may retaliate by posting a funny status post on your Facebook account.

Hope that helps

How to solve Acer monitor black screen and orange light problem?

This doesn't really sound like a monitor issue, although it has been known to happen that some monitors develop a fault that causes the inputs to stop working.

IT sounds like an issue with the computer or the cable.

No video power supply is good processesor fan woking normaly

Built-in video on motherboards use shared RAM ie uses part of the main RAM.
When you get POST beeps and there is no video then the RAM maybe faulty or just needs reseating.
Try reseating the RAM first and if it still does not work the remove the RAM and take the RAM to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

No P.O.S.T., computer doesn't start up

Remove HDD, RAM, any cards (assuming you have a built-in video adapter)and see what happens. You could also remove the processor and try again. If none of this works then try a new power supply.

I turn my computer and i hear a three beep code continuously but the screen did not display anything


3 beep code is a video card mis function. try taking the video card out only after you disconnect the power cord and touch the cpu case to take the static from your body and make sure it properly seats into the slot. then restart your system if this doesn,t work and you continue to get the 3 beep code it will most likely time to get a new video card.. if the card is a built in card and you have available slots on *********** board try adding another card . depending on the age and brand of computer you coomputer will auto recognize another card and work or will ask you which card do you want tio use in this case prompt for the new card and it will contintue to use it. good luck .. thanks..

Facebook Phone

I guess The nick "facebook phone" comes from a post on scobleizer, that claims Nokia N97 phone to be the ultimate Facebook device.

Scobleizer recons it's better then the iPhone here his reasons -

1. It does 16:9 video. The iPhone doesn’t even do video. So, how can you go to a Daft Punk concert and record it to taunt your friends?

2. It has a 5 megapixel camera. The iPhone only has 2, and the quality isn’t even close. The camera also has a dual LED flash, so you can take pictures in the dark where the iPhone can’t.

3. I can type three Facebook status messages on the N97’s nice QWERTY keybord in the time that I can type two on the iPhone.

4. It does copy and paste, so you can copy URLs to send to your friends. The iPhone can’t do that.

5. It has replaceable batteries so you can charge up three batteries and Facebook for days, while the iPhone needs to be hooked back up to the wall for recharging after a few hours.

6. The GPS device does turn-by-turn and has a built in compass, so you’ll get to your parties faster than with the iPhone, which doesn’t have a compass and doesn’t do turn-by-turn.

Sounds perfect, I hope it's true and that I'll get to enjoy it :-)
I'm not sure this is "the" Facebook phone.
What do you girls think?
