Question about EPoX EP-8RGM3I Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard tones Hi, This is for a friend, unit was working. The unit has not video (monitor says no signal and then shuts off) and then gives a high low sound repeatly. Have unseated ram. Get standard ram beeps and the high low sound as well. Tried another video card. Took out the modem, disconnected all the drives, still getting no video and sound high then low repeatly. Tried some pci video cards, still no luck. Any ideas? I just am at a loss because the motherboard is still signaling for memory if it is out. Is it the motherboard?

    I have tried to reset the bios to default and tried both of the onboard video slots. The sound is more like an ambulance sound. It is high then low and continuous. When the memory was unseated, I got the high low sound (the siren) and also the regular beeps you would get with no memory. So do you think the board is shot?

    that is what I was afraid of..Must be the bios chip that is having issues. I think she will just get a new computer. Thanks for the help

    Hey I have the same problem. The computer worked fine (well kinda) It would shut off without notice constantly. I figured it was over heating considering the CPU was idling at 80C. I opened up the computer and the heatsink was filled with dust. like caked on. I cleaned it out with compressed air and it's clear now. Upon connecting the computer back up, it makes two lower beeps (well one low and one slightly higher) and then siren like beeps as mentioned above. The monitor isn't getting a signal so I can't do anything.

    I would try and reset the BIOS but im not too sure of how to on this board. I know there's a jumper by the battery, but i'm not sure what to do with that one.

Hi, I believe you're quite right in assuming that the mb is still ok. Since you have tried replacing the video card and un/re-seat the memory, why not try replacing the memory with a known working one. Also it might be helpful to reset the bios to default by the jumper setting. It might be helpful for you to post the motherboard manufacturer and model number. Please let me know how it turns up. Regards.

    My apologies, I failed to notice the manufacturer and model number. The bios/cmos reset is the yellow jumper near the memory battery between the pci and agp slots.

    Also, Epox EP-8RGM3I mb has a built-in video card. You may want to try that. If the sound is a series of beeps, it probably might be memory problem. However if it is a continous similar to that of the old ambulance siren, then it may be motherboard or motherboard bios. Again,try reset the bios to default.

    Hi trsshh,
    I'm afraid I have to revise my initial solution. It looks like the mb is fried and you have to replace it. Am not sure if it is an nForce issue but I came across this problem 3 times personally but with Asus. At first I was able to fix them by removing and cleaning the motherboard off the case using an old tootbrush and/or paint brush and a strong solvent. But the problem came back after a couple of months.The solvent might be pretty strong, it could and would melt plastic connectors etc even the toothbrush after prolong usage (it also causes eye/skin irritation, care in use please if ever. Am not sure if its legally sold across the counter in your area). I then air dry. And make sure everything is dry before setting it back into the casing. Some would argue that some solvents are too strong for mb and to use Carbon TetraChloride instead (expensive and hard to find in my area). Still others say that I would further aggravate the problem, what can I say, it is the only readily available solvent and it works albeit as a temporary remedy. All 3 units worked but soon died eventually. So if you want to try the above, please just be careful and don't take any risk to yourself. Better simply replace the mb. Let me know how things work out.

How to fi a phillips 20fp shuts off in 2 scs.


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

No input monitor signal


Sounds like the video card inside the computer is bad. If the monitor was bad it would not be able to display the No Input Signal. To make sure, try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same No Input Signal message then your video card is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor or lcd screen is bad.

If you have a laptop, The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

K8NF4G MOTHERBOARD IS NOT WORKING


Your Video Card (Graphics Card) is probably bad. To isolate the problem connect another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same NO Signal Message then your video card is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works correctly, then your original monitor is bad. The fact that your monitor displays the No Signal Message on it shows that the monitor is ok.

What should I do because it says no signal input


Sounds like your video card or monitor is bad. Most likely it's the video card because if it was the monitor the No Signal Input could not appear on the screen. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed Monitor displays ok without a problem then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor has the same issue of No Input Signal as your original monitor, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Hi,

I suggest try the HDMI connection on your machine and see if its able to give display, since you purchase a new Video Card I assume it have a HDMI port. Or try different monitor with a DVI port if you really want a DVI connection, If it works it means the DVI port on your monitor is faulty.

Hope it helps.

Have emachines W2060. Can't get screen to show


Hi Joe,

Could be one of several things:

1) Monitor cable connection loose.
2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad.
3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.)
4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this.
5) Bad monitor.

Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?

Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.

Comment back with any updates.

Thanks for using Fixya.

LCD MoNITOR no Signal


The problem lies with your video card. The fact that it worked on your friends computer proves that it is not your monitor. Some motherboards have two video adapters. One on a video card and one on the motherboard. You need to open your PC case and see if you have one or two. If you have two then you can try the other one. Otherwise, replacing the video card will correct it. However, if the only video adapter is the one connected to your motherboard then the motherboard has to be replaced. If you have any questions let me know.

check for loose connection of the video cable connection on the system unit (CPU). blinking may indicate that there is no signal transferred from the cpu to the monitor!
