Question about Foxconn (945G7MA-8KS2) Motherboard

Foxconn 915 motherboard - no POST sound


Hi ! Could anybody advise ma about the problem I have?
I wanted to use my old mob (Foxconn 915M03-G-8LS2) with brand new components (Intel Core 2 Duo, WD Caviar 160GB, Kingston 2048MB 800MHz DDRII, LG GH220P20 DVD-RW and all that is in brand new case Codegen 603-CA, ATX). When I had connected everything to the mob and try to switch it up, nothing happened - no POST sound, coolers on the CPU and in the PSU are pulsing (turning in short intervals) and that is all. After a while even that is not working any more. If I press the power button and keep it, than the coolers are working, the power on LED is lighting, but still there is no POST beep at all.
Where could be a problem? Could you be so kind to provide me with the POST beeping chart or maybe a necessary jumper position? What is the best way to troubleshoot my mob?
Thanks in advance!

Answer # 1

Your motherboard does not support the Intel Core 2 Duo cpus. That is why it will not post.

    Roy Lonsinger The 915 chipsets only support the Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D cpu. As for video cards it depends on if your board has a pci-e or agp slot. If it has a pci-e slot then the sky is the limit as long as your psu has enough wattage. ATI & Nvidea both make excellent cards as well as third party manufacturers using the ATI/Nvidea chipsets. Hope this helps.
