Re: motherboard

Katstu, Are any fans, hard drive or LEDs coming on at all, even briefly? If nothing try the following: -Check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Check the 110/220 voltage slide switch to ensure its on 110 (US). If the power supply has a rocker on/off switch make sure its in the on (1) position. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the computer case power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you get this far your processor or motherboard may be defective, it happens on occasion. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Installing a new pci-e video

For one, what you can do is put in your old card. Install the NEW drivers for your 9500GT and shutdown. Install new Graphics card. (I would double check for an "ATX" power input on the card.)(, im sure it needs one) and that should hopefully help, Also consult your motherboard booklet and your graphics card booklet to see if the card is compatible. Hope this helps!

Motherboar fail, no video, power supply ok help

Firstly, remove the RAM and turn on the system, if you hear the beep sound continuously that means everything is perfect expect RAM.
Clean the track of RAM at both sides by pencil eraser completely.
Also clean the port of RAM.

Secondly reinstall the CPU with CPU FAN and also clean the FAN.

Third one is that remove all the add-on's card and than turn on the system.

Dont know what motherboard i have and cant figure out where to plug powerswitch.

get SIW

this will allow you to determine what motherboard you have.

They ended the home edition at version 2.20 I think it was but there official site is

The above utils should help you with identifying what you need, there is also cpu z and wcpuid ( google them if you need to ) which will give you info about your memory and processors that you have installed.

Also with regards to where to plug the power switch - what are you reffering to ?

Have you installed the motherboard and you are not sure which power molex connector to connect to your motherboard or you mean physically as in the mains cable or what exactly ?

Beep: 6 seconds on, 3 seconds off

Pull all the cards out. Put in the CPU and fan, just one memory chip, the video card and the hard drive. Plug in just the power supply and the powerbutton switch to motherboard. Don't connect anything but the monitor, mouse and keyboard. If you still get beeps, try another memory chip (just one). I don't know the beep codes for your motherboard so we have to do this one step at a time.
