Question about Asrock ALIVENF6G-DVI Skt AM2 Nvidia NF6100-430 onboard 256MB shared VGA 8 channel audio mATX Motherboard

1 Answer

Little or no connectivity

I just replaced my motherboard, RAM, and processor. The computer was tested on the internet at another site and it worked. My internet here works on my laptop so I know it works as well. When I ran ipconfig it gives me the default (auto) addresses for windows XP. The computer is recognizing the newtowork adapter for the motherboard in the hardware tab and when tested it says it works. I have comcast. I have tried everything but I still dont have internet???

Hello. If you're not using an ethernet cable make sure you have the proper usb drivers for the modem and that you modems 'ID' (mac ID) has been registered with comcast. What your pc is probably registering is the fact that it is acutally hitting the comcast servers. All that means is that you're really getting out into the world, but since comcast doesn't have your modem on file it will not let it through. you may also want to recheck your firewall settings, and reset everything in the line. this means modem, any routers, or hubs, your pc and any other pc you may be networked with all at the same time then power them up one by one. don't login until everything is turned on. if you are networked this will pose a few different problems

MY ASUS P6T DELUXE TURNS ON BUT THE C-MOS SCREEN DOESNT SHOW.....


First thing to check with a desktop computer problem, is the Power Supply.

No sir,....cannot ASSUME power supply is good, because LED's light up, and fans spin.

1) If ALL the LED's were lit up at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor (CPU) can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

Intel Core i7, model 950?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Bloomfield.22_.2845_nm.29

Up To 130 Watts. (TDP. Thermal Design Power, or Thermal Design Point. Whichever you prefer )

Exceeded the spec's I stated.

Power Supply with a weak voltage rail, will have enough power to turn the wimpy little LED's on, and spin fans; but will NOT have enough power to turn the Processor on.

How to know?

Test the 3 main voltages coming out of the Power Supply, with a multimeter set to DC Voltage;

Or,

Temporarily substitute the Power Supply, with a KNOWN to be good, Compatible one.

Borrow from a working computer. Then you can diagnose if this is the problem; and can put it back in the working computer.

The motherboard you have needs at least 150 Watts.
CPU = 130 Watts
Each ram memory module = 15 Watts (DDR3 Sdram)
Harddrive and optical drives around 25 Watts each.
Fans 2 to 3 Watts each.

Your CPU requires 3 ram memory modules at least. 6 can be used.
So........
150 + 130 + 45 + 50 + 6 = 381 Watts.

Bare minimum is 400 Watts, and you should have a 500 Watt power supply. Need at least 10 percent over what is needed; but why play around? 500 Watts.

http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Have a multimeter?
(An economical model can be purchased for as little as $5 to $12)

1) ALL Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
2) ALL Red wires are 5 Volts
3) ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volts.
ALL are DC Voltage.

In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

ALL Black wires are Ground wires,

(Your SMPS is of the ATX technology)

Need guidance in performing this? Post back in a Comment.

Also:
When checking a desktop computer, after checking power; and this does no good;

Have ONLY the Processor, processor fan hooked up, and Ram Memory.
That means disconnect EVERYTHING else.

Harddrive, (Power and data cable), optical drive, (Power and data cable), computer case fans, (NOT processor), Card Reader cables, Front Panel USB cables, etc.

All you are trying to do at this point, is see if you can pull the BIOS Setup screen up.
If so then add Harddrive, and computer case fans.

[ Note* This is a fast test. BIOS Setup screen comes up, turn the computer off.
CTRL key, ALT key, and Delete key AT SAME TIME.

You don't want to overheat the motherboard. Primarily the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip; of the motherboard chipset.

You're just performing a fairly fast test ]

Intel Core i7 requires THREE ram memory modules, at least.
People have used two, but do not apparently understand the Nehalem technology, and using an Intel Core i7.

You can do multiple things to improve the speed of your computer's internet.
  • Try using a different browser, such as Google Chrome, Chromium, or Firefox.
  • Upgrade your internet speeds with your internet service provider (Time Warner cable, road runner, or the like)
  • Buy and install a better processor.
  • Buy and install more/better RAM.
  • Uninstall programs you rarely or never use.
  • Run a registry cleaner.

My mother board is not giving any beep sound. When i power on the PC system looking working bt no display. I chk processor nd RAM bt they r working on another board.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Hi,my computer has stopped working and just beeps at me. mother boardis a Microstar P4m266-8235. Please Help......Thank You


Hi there,

This problem could be due to carious problems.

1) Your motherboard is faulty.
2) Your Processor is faulty.
3) Your RAM chip/s are faulty.

Firstly, you will need to unplug your computer and open it up. Then you need to locate the RAM which looks like this:


bearweb_0.jpg

Remove one piece of RAM (assuming you have more than one piece) and try to start the computer again, then if it doesn't work, remove the other chip and reinsert the chip that was first removed and try to power up again.

If it works, then one of the RAM chips were faulty and you will need to replace them.

If the computer still does not work, then either your Motherboard or Processor are faulty.

You should then buy a new motherboard which isn't too expensive (be sure to buy a motherboard that will fit in your computer and will also be able to handle your processor.). Place the motherboard with the RAM in to the computer case after removing the old motherboard. Then carefully remove the processor from the old one and put it in to the new one.

Be sure to re-insert any cables that you have unplugged from the old motherboard in to the new one. Then try and power up once the machine has safely been closed again.

If the computer works, the motherboard was faulty. If it still does not work, then your processor is faulty and you will need to buy a new processor and install it.

Alternatively, you can take the computer to a repairman who will test the various components which will save you the hassle of doing all of that work and it will also save you the cost of having to buy new RAM and a new motherboard if in fact it is actually your processor that is faulty.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

When you inserted a test probe into the slot and you saw a spark, then you have short circuit a component on the motherboard and have done a major damage to the motherboard.
You need a new motherboard, most desktop cases have standard mounting holes, you may be able to purchase a motherboard from other manufacturer to fit in the Dell.

Would not boot Processor pins appear undamaged


  • Check for shorts and overloads inside computer by removing nonessential items such as extra controller cards and IDE/ATAPI devices and turning the computer on to see if it starts to boot. Leave the motherboard, power supply, RAM or processor. If the problem goes away, there was a short or overload with one of the components that you just removed or one of those components is faulty. Replace each of those one at a time until you isolate which is causing the problem. If the problem still occurs after removing the nonessential components, the problem has to be with the motherboard, power supply, RAM or processor.

  • Remove the processor and RAM and reinstall them to make sure that they are installed correctly.
  • If the problem still persists, swap the RAM with known good RAM. In addition, test the suspected RAM in another known working system.

  • If the problem still persists, swap the processor with a known good processor. In addition, test the suspected processor in another known working system.

  • If the problem still persists, swap the motherboard with a known good motherboard. In addition, test the suspected motherboard in another known working system.

    I dont my mother board


    Is this motherboard in a working computer, and is internet capable?
    (One never assumes, as the person asking the question, may be using another computer to post the question)

    If so, I suggest going to CPUID.com, and download CPU-Z. (It's free)
    CPU-Z will tell you all about,

    1.Mainboard, (Motherboard): Who makes it, what model number it is, what processor socket it has, what motherboard chipset it uses, what integrated audio, (Sound), what integrated graphics, (Video) (Unless it doesn't have integrated video, and relies on a graphics card), and so on.

    2.Ram memory: How many ram slots it has, what ram slots are being used, what ram type it uses, what ram 'speed' it uses, and so on.

    3.Processor: What processor is installed, who made it, and what model number, what the Front Side Bus is, (FSB), what the internal clock is, and so on.

    Finding the motherboard manufacturers name, and the model number, you go online to the motherboard manufacturers website, go to Support, and type the model number in. This will take you to a Support page for that motherboard. There you will find a CPU Support List, (Processor), plus what the Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram is, and what the Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is, plus a host of other info.

    You can also try downloading Belarc Advisor.

    If the motherboard is in your hand, look on the motherboard, and see if you can see the motherboard manufacturers name.
    (Examples: Asus, AsRock, Chaintech, Gigabyte, Intel, MicroStar International Inc.,(MSI), ECS, Evga, PNY, PCchips, and so on.

    Look for the model number on the motherboard. It may be in-between the expansion slots, near the edge of the motherboard, or in the middle.

    If this is a motherboard that came out of an HP, or Compaq computer, things gets a little tougher. Post back here with the computer name and model number.
    It's on the back of a desktop computer, right next to the Windows Product Key, or up on the side of the tower.

    For a laptop it's on the bottom. It may be in a Service Tag.

    You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

    Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

    Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.
