Hi There,

Off course there isn't any harm in changing your ribbon cable.

Please let me know what happens.

Thanks

Hi There,

1) Unplug the ide cable from the motherboard, and try booting, It should through an error.. which is good.
2) If it troughs an error than re-plug the ide cable back in and make sure hard drive is plugged in tight.
3) boot up he system and go to the bois
4) In the bois select auto detect drive (if you have that option) if selected than save the bois
5) if the driv has been found then you system should boot up correctly assuming that you have an operationg system installed.

Please let me know how you get on.

Regards,

Philip

After a while the computer start sending blue signal


You could check to see if the northbridge or southbridge chips are overheating, but it sounds like one or more capacitors are bad even though they don't look defective(bulging or leaking). You did a good job narrowing it down. Probably best to just retire that motherboard.

I have a D865perl MB some times for no reason my computer shuts down. It is a pain to restart, i have to turn it on and off atleast 20 times


Hi,
That looks a hardisk failure.
Set the BiOS to "max. default operation", save upon exit. If you still got the same problem replace the HARDiSK.
Try to replace the hardisk and install your favorite OS.

Hope that helps!

I really don't know what you mean. Give all the specs of your PC , please also make sure your HDD is not set in your BIOS to RAID, Set it to IDE Mode

Black screen on boot on biostar mcp6p m2+


That board has a built in video card if I have the right info. If you are using an external video ie plug in card then you need to make sure the onboard video is disabled or that the plug in card is designated as the main video card. Not doing either of those will cause the black screen.

Motherboard or Computer


have you used the auto hardrive detect in the bios, because it will still look for the previous drive, or highlight it in the standard cmos settings and enter it manually.

If you are swapping a hard drive from anothe pc with windows installed it will not boot as it won't recognise hardware, it has to be a clean drive.

Reboot problem..


Easiest possible solutions first:
1) download and install the latest drivers for your video card
2) see if there is an update for the game that causes the problem
3) run memtest86 from http://www.memtest86.com/ to check if your RAM is bad
4) swap out the current video card with a known good video card
