Question about Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS Motherboard

2 Answers

After 18 month the computer will not go into POST on a re-start but will start normally when completed turned off.

The computer will have to be restarted after most OS updates, etc. and has worked normally until recently. Now when windows shuts down, some 10 or 15 seconds later the computer begins to start. I shut off the logo to view the screen. The initial black screen with Phoenix BIOS appears with the task bar at the bottom "Del to enter set-up", etc. However the screen is frozen, no memory check etc. Esc, Del, F10, three key boot, nothing will move into POST. It is necessary to shut off power, turn back on again, then press the start button on the computer. POST checks the memory and starts the OS too fast to read the progress. The mother board functioned flawlessly for 18 months. It freezes on hot re-start only. Any help available. Note, all BIOS settings are original except I turned off the WinFast logo to see the screen on start up.

Re: After 18 month the computer will not go into POST on...

The system in the bios must be set to halt on all errors. Go into the bios (F2 or Del) on start up and in the standard bios settings, there should be 'halt on all errors enabled. Set this at off or dissabled. Next time you boot the pc it will not stop if there is an error and should show you the problem cause in the boot up sequence. If all else fails follow the previous solution post to clear cmos, to do this locate the 'JBAT1' terminal and put jumper cap from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, then back to 1-2. Start pc reset time and date and if unsure highlight default settings menu enter, save settings then exit and hopefully it will boot into windows.

No display problem for intel D865GSA board

What are you formatting ? Have you changed the RAM. Does tour system work in its original configuration ? You do not say what the pattern of the beeps is. Before the display disappears, is there a message sent to the screen ?
From the manual

Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message

describing the problem (see Table 53). The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long

tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty

video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly

checksum to zero.

An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors,

usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more

information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external


There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the

system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues

a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts

to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using

both monochrome and color adapters).

If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to
the operating system.

Computer doesn't start , boot led flashing

Your computer after fighting bravely in battle has taken a hit and is now wounded.

See my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Clear the BIOS/CMOS reinstall the RAM.

It normally comes down to a faulty mainboard.

Take care!

I have a Gigabyte EX38 DS4 motherboard. A few months ago the power light light would blink after I shut windows down and it wouldn't turn on again. If I unplugged the computer for a while it would stop...

As you may already know, your computer will shut down after power on if if the power supply does not receive a power good signal from the motherboard. Since you already tested the PSU in another computer, and you know the PSU is good, either you have a bad mobo or some device connected to the power supply is draining excessive power from the PSU and causing it to shut down.

Try removing the 4 pin pin power plugs from ALL devices, such as the floppy drive, CD drives etc.
If the system stays on when you power up, then you can isolate the faulty device by re-connecting them one-by-one. If the system still shuts down your Mobo or CPU is bad and you might want to take it to a PC technician to determine if it's worth fixing.

I installed everything the CPU, RAM, and everything else. Connected all switches at the right places and the BIOS is on normal operation. I turn on the computer and its a blank screen nothing shows up....

ok, looking at the specifications All I can recommend is the following. double check the Video card to make sure it is properly seated and that it does not exceed the capabilities of the motherboard. 2 Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and case wiring/power supply and turn the computer on. If the system completes the post test, you will hear at least 1 beep and should hear several for the video card not being connected, then start installing components 1 at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Start with the Video card and then the ram as these are most likely where your problem is unless you have a faulty power supply which will be the problem if you don't get a completed post with nothing else connected.

On intel 82945G motherboard, restart never works (computer stalls - XP and Vista)


You may want to check the version of video drivers that you have installed. You will find drivers for the onboard video here. If you need to check th version you have installed, you can find that information here.

You may also want to try temporarily disabling you power management option to see if that if whats causing the problem. You can find that info here.

Also, if neither of these option corrects the issue, you may want to try Windows Update by opening Internet Explorer and clicking Tools > Windows Update.

Another idea is to see if it will restart in safe mode by turning off the machine and then before you see the logo start pressing F8 about once every second until you see the Advance startup menu. Then choose Safe Mode with Networking (you will need to use the arrow keys and the enter key. You will see alot of drivers go down the screen but this is normal. Then choose yes from the warning dialog box. Then attempt to restart once everything loads. If that works it is something in the startup that is causing the problem. You can start msconfig by clicking start and entering msconfig in the start search box and pressing enter. Then click the start up tab and you can deselect the options one at a time there.

Hope thsi helps. Please rate this informsion.

Problem starting up my computer

Is the PC Beeping at the end of the POST ( power on self test)
It should beep just before the bios screen appears(this is the screen which lists all the installed cards etc in the system along with the hard drives and the various other parameters) if not, it is not completeing or even starting the POST.
You may have a critical error so make sure ALL cards and RAM chips are fully and correctly installed.( touch a bare metal part of the chassis BEFORE touching anything inside the case)
If you still have probs, did you touch a part of the bare metal chassis BEFORE you touched anything else?
You may have spiked the board with static discharge.

CMOS battery drains after one startup. Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI

OK lets see here! Make sure your CMOS jumper is set properly on the board(Set to Normal) or Did you configure your bios after flashing the bios(going into bios and Load Optimized Defaults!)? or I don't think it would be another device in the system, but you can try troubleshooting by starting up with only what you need to run the machine (Mobo, memory harddrive, keyboard and mouse) then one by one adding devices back! or Did you have problems like this b4 you flashed the bios! Try flashing the bios back to an older version! post back if anything new or if i'm way off! Good Luck regards, babb
