The error message indicates you posted (power button green, video on the screen... keyboard failure error message). But your comments indicate the power button is yellow/orange. That indicates a "no post".

If the power button is yellow, disconnect everything from the motherboard, but the connections for the power supply and control panel (power button). Turn it back on.

If you get a green power button, and the system beeping at you add the memory back in. All four slots MUST be filled!!! If it's still green, add the video card back in. If that works, keep adding things one at a time until it either works, or you know what's causing the problem.

If you get a yellow button, check your heatsink. You just replaced the motherboard. You might not have gotten it right the first time. If everything is tight, and all the power connections are tight and plugged in (if I remember right, there should be a 20 pin and a 4 pin connector), it might actually be a bad board. Try swapping the old board back in and see if you get a different response (if so, the new board is bad).

Why is it my touch screen workks, but my fold out keyboard os locked and buttons are not working. the letter buttons. help please.


the touch screen is not connected the same as your keyboard the screen is direct hardware connected and youre keyboard and mouse are connected as bluetooth devices. you shoud have what is reffered to as a .dongle, which plugs into any comuter usb port, and talks to the keyboard and mouse. first check or replace the batteries inn both the mouse and the keyboard, then make to turn on the switch on the backside of the keyborad. Then push the button,connect, on the back of the dongle, and finally push the connect button on the bottomside of the mouse.The mouse and dongle should flash if they are talking to each other.

If you have an old keyboard and mouse that plug directly into the computer then they are hard wired directly to the motherboard by sockets. these are not repairable. but first go to start-botom left corner and click on the icon and go to control panel and select keyboard and rest all defaults such as keyboard language, rebbot and try again...my keyboard after installing defaults to french canada and i have to change to us otherwise my question mark becomes a french e. I hope this helps

Sir, My PC is starting problem, 1.Starting UPS - ON the system starts automatically without swith ON. 2.After Starting the keyboard & Mouse get stuck 3.after Restart the the keyboard & Mouse...


The UPS may not be sufficiently stable on power-on to run a PC immediately.

Try going into the BIOS setup after the restart and look for the option that has the computer "Start up automatically after power failure." Turn this off. That will take care of problem 1.

If this also takes care of problem 2, you may want to check whether the UPS has a problem. Start by plugging a couple of lamps with 100 Watt bulbs into the UPS outlets instead of the computer. Turn it on - the lamps should behave normally, not flicker or change brightness. With the lamps and UPS still on, unplug the UPS. The lamps should stay on with little or no change, and the battery warning light should not come on right away. If the UPS fails this test, its battery may need to be replaced or it has a regulator problem.

When I turn on the computer during POST the motherboard buzzer makes a 6-7 second long beep error code. Thanks in advance for your answer.


Hello;

The "beeps" your motherboard is making is an error code, designed to alert you of an error in an essential system component, such as a memory failure, general motherboard failure, video card failure, etc. When a PC is started, no matter the brand, it goes through a POST (power on self test).

The types of beeps is a code, and is often system specific; changing from the manufacturer of the system BIOS, (BIOS; Basic Input Output System). If you know the bios mfg, you can get a POST error code chart for that specific manufacturer online... this will tell you what component is in question...

I do find it odd that you've changed a motherboard, without trying to change your keyboard! Seems like it would be easier to troubleshoot a keyboard issue, than swapping out a motherboard.

I don't know how fast your post code error is coming out, but if you don't know the mfg of your BIOS, it splashes it on the screen at bootup, or you can check your manufacturer's website.

HOW DO I INSTALL MOTHERBOARD


You should really have someone show you how to do this as it is very technical and doing it incorrectly could result in catastrophic system failure. However, it can be done quite easily once you've seen it done a couple times. It is also difficult to give general instructions because each board is different in some respects.

Recover BIOS d845gebv2 motherboard my motherboard does not boot.monitor displays intel desktop board in blue screen


Right after you power the computer on start tapping F2 rapidly on the keyboard until you are in the BIOS setup. When you are in the BIOS setup, check to see that the computer recognizes your boot device and that your boot order is correct. Also, if you have changed any jumpers on your mainboard; change the back.

Power failure right when it gets to one


looks like a windows-related problem.
try if your keyboard works at all by entering bios but do not change anything. just quit saving no changes.
does it work?
if yes, possibly a windows error.
to check :
- try booting from a windows-cd(XP), not from harddisk, without going through install process, execute the repair process instead.
- reboot from your harddisk in safe mode.
everything o.k.?

if still the problem, and don't have any personal data you might loose on harddisk(hdd)
reinstall windows xp anew, but this time let it format the hdd fully, then go on installing a clean, new copy of win XP.
when still facing the problem, plse come again

Usb not working drivers installed


I assume you are talking about mouse/keyboard usb devices. If you are then you should check your bios settings to see if keyboard/mouse usb is Enabled. To get into bios, restart your computer and the DEL key (if you can't get your keyboard working at all you may need to switch to a ps/2 connection keyboard in order to enable it first). Worst case scenario is that you need a new motherboard as the ports may have died.

Keyboard is stuck and need change boot order


You can try connecting an external keyboard. When the external is connected the BIOS may ignore in built-in keyboard, bypassing your keyboard error.

You can also try removing the stuck key by prying it up GENTLY.

The answer to your question is unless you can get a working keyboard connected to your computer there is no way to change the boot order. Without a working keyboard you can't get into the system setup (BIOS), nor can you press the correct key.

Bios not loading when hitting DEL


Hi,

Have you tried using a PS/2 keyboard? Or the other way around, a USB keyboard.

Additionally you can try doing a reset on the motherboard by temporarily relocating the jumper on the CMOS reset pins (JP1 close to the Lithium battery) from 2-3 to 1-2 for a couple of seconds then back. Normally, once performed, the motherboard on the next boot will revert to default and auto request a CMOS setup. Alternately you can also temporarily remove the battery for about 15 minutes.

If the USB and/or PS/2 KB nor the CMOS reset does not allow you to enter the BIOS setup, perhaps you need to return the board for replacement since this is indicative of MB failure.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
