Question about Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (683562472159) Motherboard

System dead except for one light

My system seems to be dead. When i hit the power on button i get nothing. the only light that works is the +5vsb. no response at all. i removed part by part to see if there was a short or anything. i couldnt find a short. i checked all the cables, re-seated all the plugs and still nothing. i thought it could be the power supply that went bad but when i used a different supply on the same board all i get once again is the 5vsb. Do you think i should just go and invest in a new motherboard ?this is my second foxconn board, the first i recieved got on fire the first time i tried to boot it up. so i'm not concerned with warranty replacement as i will never use a foxconn motherboard again. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: System dead except for one light

Perhaps your power-on button is bad. Try a different power on button.

Have an Abit IC7 motherboard in a system given to me by a friend. I have two problems in getting the board to boot. 1) One of the brackets that the spring mount uses on the Northbridge chipset fell off...

1) The bracket is a simple push fit one - it just pops in and locks in there when pushed.
2) Simple test (assuming that the processor , video card and the memory have been tested in another motherboard and are good): remove all the disks and try to start it up into the BIOS - if you can't then the problem is in the motherboard. As a last hope reset the BIOS and remove the battery for one hour. If it doesn't starts even after that then the board is dead.
The DVD burner will power up and seek even if it's not connected to anything else - all that it says is that the unit is working normally.

Motherboard problem.

Test the motherboard with nothing attached to it except the monitor, mouse, keyboard and the power button. If you can't still get into the bios then try again with another memory and processor. If it's the same then it's dead, junk it, it's unfixable.

My system won't start. I testd the power supply and it is good.There is a light on the mobo that is lit. But nothing runs. It happened when I hit the sleep button to put sys to sleep. It shut off instead...

You may now have a "frozen" system. Try this and see if it helps.

  1. Open your computer case. Make sure it is not plugged to avoid danger.
  2. Remove the RAMs from the motherboard.
  3. Power ON your computer. Your system should BEEP to indicate that is detected an error.
  4. Power OFF your CPU and return the RAMs in place. Your computer should be working now when you turn it ON.

Hit power button and nothing other than lights flicker once

Remove everything from the board except the front panel hookups.Make sure you remove memory, video card, hard drive and cdrom cables, hard drive and cdrom power, anything plugged into the back except the power. If it will power up this way start plugging things back in between power cycles. Start with memory then power down. Then add video then power down. Continue with Cdrom, then hard drives. When it stopps wanting to power on you know where the issue lies. If it wont power on with nothing on it then the motherboard is probably bad. Hope this helps.

When I hit power button on computer, power light doesn't come on...and the fan kicks on, but nothing else happens. nothing shows up on monitor except the test screen with 3 colors...the computer doesn't...

THis sounds like a power supply issue.. I had a similar issue with mine. my fan would kick on for about 2 seconds then shut off.
Hope that helps

CUW-AM no power

Try you system with a known working power supply. Your power supply could have an intermittent problem. It could be a lose wire or a capacitor problem. Putting back your system, Plug the 20 pin/24 pin power connector to the motherboard, plug the 4 pin extra CPU power in place, plug the panel connectors(Power button, reset button, LED...).

Dead MB?

Most of the time the issue seems to be a bad power supply. I would test with a different one if possible. In rare cases I have seen the capacitors bulge and leak leading to a dead motherboard.
