Question about AOpen XC Cube EZ915 (95EZ1592Z1) Barebone

1 Answer

Start Up hi, i have finished putting up together my XC Cube EX915, i have connected everything correctly and when i turn it on every thing runs well apart from the fact that the screen wont show any activity, i have tried installing a Geforce 8600 GTS OC bypassing the onboard VGA but nothing seems to work, will this be a problem with the motherboard or is it somthing els? (and one other thing i noticed...when i plug in the power supply the keyboard lights flush once as if the PC has been turned on) please help Geoff

    hi again...its proving to be a hard nut....i have tried everything that you have said, the MB hasn't got any BIOS but it has the CIMOS jumper only, so i tried your instruction with the CIMOS jumper but nothing changed, would you think its the MB that has a fault?

O.K. Try this:

Turn the power off at the wall, Pull the GF card and flash the BIOS (refer to manual to locate JP1 move the jumper so that it covers the central pin and the previously exposed pin hold for three seconds and return to origional position). If you have altered any VGA jumpers put them back in their origional positions. Reboot using the unboard graphics card.

If it reboots with a nice clear beep from the onboard speaker and gives U a dsiplay we are on a winner if not we have a more involved problem.

Please please note: NEVER HAVE POWER CONECTED TO YOU SYSTEM WHILST YOU ARE ALTERING ANYTHING PHYSICAL INSIDE THE TOWER JUST DONT AND TAKE STATIC PRECAUTIONS.

O.K.: Lets just say you rebooted with display, reboot again but this time breaking into the BIOS (usualy either DEL, F2 or F10 being struck repeditaviley on boot untill the BIOS comes up). Search thru the the BIOS options untill U find one that alows u to disable the onboard VGA and often u will find one that alows u to enable the Advanced Graphics Interface depending on the manufacurer this may be a default setting that if u disable one it automaticaly enables the other or it could be called something different but u know what I mean.

O.K.: Time to check the manual if there are any onboard jumpers or such to disable the onboard VGA switch them (fairly rare for a number of years but possible). Reinstal the GF gently but firmly have stumped myself many a time and seen others do it whare a card or component feels sound but is not properly seated.

Moment of truth reboot using the GF. I this works.

If on boot u either get a string of continuous beeps or no beeps at all u have a more serious problem and a more lengthy solution. Primarily unplug everything from the MB, reinstall the CPU and the minamum amount of RAM, flash the BIOS and reboot. No beep, no display no boot back to the manufaturer/ supplier for a replacemant under warranty.

O.K. u got a beep u got a display - now it is time to start installing each component individualy starting with the minimum amount of RAM and ending with the rest of the RAM untill u can identify which component is stopping your system from starting. Identify the component get back to us and it could be a realy easy fix. You never know I once had a machine that I "fixed" worked perfectly on my bench but failled when the client got it home - finaly got the shits, striped it completely and found a loose screw under the MB that mooved every time he transported it after a fair bit of swearing I just had to laugh.

Good luck

    Yep bad news if you cant get a short sharp beep out of it after hitting the on switch with only the CPU & RAM installed then it can only be one of the three components. CPU highly unlikely only ónes ive ever seen fail was one intel 486 (after over a decade of servise no one was complaining) and a couple of badly overclocked AMD's. RAM still unlikely but much more probable you could try someone elses RAM to test or test your RAM in their machine but if I were to make a bet it would be on the MB.



    It is often worth noting that most manufacturers of a 2 to 5 year return to base warranty, it is the retailer that only offers u a 12 month warranty. U bring in an 18 month old failed unit, they sell u a new one and then collect the warranty themselves. This is what my old boss did and most of our compeditors.



    Sorry I couldn't have been of more help.

Bios update failed.. Now all i get is 8 beeps and no display? Any solutions?


Hello,the only way to fix this problem is to prepare original bios file at your USB stick.But first you need to made this USB bootabile(put some universal BIOS fasher software from internet),than put the original file (bios)inside.when its finished try to find another PC (correct),pick up your BIOS chip,(the case of BIOS must be the same as another correct PC!!!!!!!!! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT),than turn on correct PC,run bios ,set USB stick as 1st bootabile device,save changes and restart PC,after that you will see universal Bios mask,you have choice to run bios file you already put on USB stick,DO NOT START FLASHING BIOS!!!!! PICK UP THIS BIOS CHIP FROM HIS CASE,THAN PUT YOUR BIOS CHIP (CHANGE CHIPS UNTIL THIS PC IS STILL WORKING)press enter and this PC will flash your BIOS with correct file.When its finished TURN OFF THIS PC(dont restart).Pick up your bios chip,and put it on your moterboard place for Bios,also put the bios chip from regular (correct)PC to its place,and you are finished.start PC you are using to fix problem ,just to check everything's OK,THAN TURN ON YOUR PC,IT MUST BE WORKING,9its look like risky job but dont worry its ok
I already fix lot of this problems,only check-dont short pins of chip,or turn chip at wrong direction,best luck :)

Computer beeps but doesn't start.


The beeps are an error code. Most times they are signifying a RAM or video card problem. With your explanation I would check the video card first. The card might have overheated or just plain crapped out on you. Try replacing and rebooting. Hopefully this will have fixed your problem. Sorry. Hope this points you in the right direction & Good luck.

Does this affect the operation of your xc Cube in any other way? If not it doesn't really matter. I had a similar issue with my pc, but it doesn't affect the operation and it doesn't really bother me
