    The number you mention here is the chipset type for your motherboard. In order to help you we would need the motherboard model number.

Switch off the computer and open the pc cover.
First check the ram,and clean by eraser or with solvent and install again.If the problem is same, install the ram to another computer to ensure either it damage or not .If the problem is same change ram.

If same as before now please take a risk and ready to chip label repair,
1.Change all the bad capacitors, beside the processor, with the help by nearest technician. http://cquirke.mvps.org/badcaps.htmclip_image007.jpghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Acer_E360_Socket_939_motherboard_by_Foxconn.svgclip_image009.jpghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboard

2. Set an identification Mark, on the bios chip, by the permanent marker because you need to remove and install it. It could not be possible for all mother board.clip_image011.gifclip_image012.gifclip_image002.gifclip_image013.gif
3. Remove bios chip from base, clean with solvent and install it proper again.It could not be apply for all mother board.ONLY FOR INTEL PLATFORM
4.For Intel mother board ,install a floppy drive and switch on the power and, watch the "led light",( floppy drives )either Blink with a long times or not.
If the floppy drives led light on, download updated bios your Intel mother board,and use a floppy disk for restore the bios , Download link.http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22865%22.

5. Don't switch off your motherboard at the time of updating the bios, so please use ups and insert the floppy, along with bios file. Set the cmos jumper in recovery mode (just change the normal position). http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-023360.htmhttp://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5520ur/sb/CS-030161.htmNow switch on motherboard, hope, through these processes,should recover the mother board.
If the problem is same, try to install a graphics card. For same problem I will recommend you for new motherboard.

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,
BearWeb

I'm looking for Bios update and drivers for a board that is hard to find. Its a ECS M925 1.0 board. chipset: via p4m266 (vt8751). southbirdge: via VT8235. Bios: American Megatrends Inc. v.0700T date...


Hi Jenkins21448,

I believe your mean PCChips M925. ECS didn't make a M925 board.
So you can find the PCChips bios and drivers HERE. If you download the manual there is a drawing of the motherboard for you to compare, to make sure you have the right drivers. But, you may be right that that board you have is extremely rare. I've never seen or heard of ECS making a M925. Check out the picture to be sure.

Thanks

Mark
