Unplug your computer, then you will find a small battery on the motherboard, this is a small silver disk shape. you need to remove this by pressing the clip to its side, this lets it spring free. you then need to locate the cmos jumper. this is a 3 pin stand off with 2 pins already covered by a plastic sleeve. remove the sleeve and place it over the other two pins, wait a few seccons then put everythinbg back to the way it was. put the jumper back in its origional position and re-attach the battery making sure it is the right way up. plug in your system and give it a try.

Solution:

i) you can rest CMOS in two ways:

   a) open or dismantle the computer tower,you will find motherboard, closely observe a silver colored        circulated watch battery(looks like circular coins....) try open the battery byusing screw-drivers           gently...and wait for few seconds and replacing again in the same way u removed and close                the tower and start system , you will some message on balnk screen saying:

      CMOS check sum error or some changes are mades try to follow onscreen instructions or press       the  F1 to continue...thus we can CMOS reset


   b) when you start ur system from the begining tab the DEL or F1 or F10 button which will take ur           BIOS SCREEN in the bios screen press the button F5 and then press F10 which will show               message to save click yes....and ur will start woking .... then CMOS reset...

On your motherboard, take out the CMOS battery for about 30mins then insert it again. Make sure that you are carefully taking it out. CMOS battery is a metallic circle shaped found on your motherboard.

The only way to reset CMOS is to remove the battery on the motherboard. It's a small battery looks like a watch battery, It keeps juice to the motherboard when the computer is turned off so the date and time stay current. Take it out and wait about 10 minutes. Put it back and boot. CMOS will be set to defaults.

What does code 7f mean on kv8 pro


Did you ever resolve?

This is the board with the external OC monitoring panel, right?! I owned this, too. I had a similar KV8 board from Soltek, as well--post codes, also. My Abit died several years ago.

The ABit's manual still exists online. According to the code, It's hanging on the onscreen logo--it says to switch to text. Here's the page describing your code: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/615/Abit-Amd-Athlon-Kv8-Pro.html?page=69#manual

If I remember correctly, that's not a serious error code--popped up often after new installs.

If it's a hard drive error--do you have the master/slave configuration jumpers correct? (Hard drive vs. Optical drive? Probably, you want the hard drive as master--optical as slave)

Is cable orientation (Pin 1--from PATA cable and at drive(s)/board) correct? Perhaps I remember now--maybe the BIOS can't get to the hard drive and OS.

Is your floppy light always illuminated (it shouldn't be)--is that cable installed correctly?

If your onboard hdd controller is dead--and, you worked with AGP over the years--you likely have a PCI card that will take its place. (If not, you may purchase that pretty easily. still.) Syba, Siig, Sabrent, StarTech, etc.

If your controller is OK, have you tried running a live i386 (32-bit) or AMD 64(64-bit) Linux disk or an old Bios upgrade/DOS floppy--to see if you get some type of OS posts? Is your proc 64-bit or 32-bit?: If I remember correctly, 754 CPUs generally were 64-bit--some were 32-bit, though (I still own one of those, too).

Did you clear your CMOS first (move the jumper for a few seconds and back)? Is the jumper correctly installed now?

Ah, the days of socket 754 (I never obtained Socket 939.....) Socket 754 still is a good value--you may obtain such a proc for about $5 on Ebay. (Used boards are a little pricey--considering.) I get the sense that 754 was the business board--939 was the gamer board.

Recently, I resurrected my old Shuttle Athlon XP board--considering its age, it holds up pretty well. Works fine with 32-bit Linux Debian distros. Dual-channel. Great OC board in its day. Currently, I have a 9800XL card in--soon, I'll put in a 3850 AGP....

Had trouble booting then just quit booting altogether...
For a quick fix that won't require soldering....
Replace the cmos battery2.gif. If it is more than 7 years old, it will most likely be weak or dead.
Remove the keyboard by sliding the KB toward you and lift the top up and slide out, Remove KB ribbon cable2.gif from connector by pulling on the plastic tab, remove the 4pin KB power connector. Then remove bottom screws and separate the case.
Locate the 3V battery, Pry the top tab of the 3v battery off the welded ends with a small needlenose, Pry the battery off the mini board, bend battery tabs so the new non-tabbed battery will be squeezing the new battery for contact, + is up!, add a piece of electrical tape to secure it from sliding. Replace bottom case and screws and then re-attach keyboard2.gif ribbon cable and 4 wire power connector. Re-boot and reset cmos ( CTRL-ALT-S ) on boot. Set your time. You must set the boot sequence to C:. It will then auto boot to C: WALLA! WIN98!

Start up problem


Try to use another keayboard, if that dosent work, try to do a full >CMOS reset.
error 25 is a weird 1 as although it's supposed to relate to gfx it's also been seen to be apparently associated with faulty IDE cables/drives & even keyboards

Good luck to you

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


The best thing to do in this situation is to build your machine outside of the case, using the minimum amount of hardware,
Remove the motherboard and using only one stick of ram, the monitor, keyboard and mouse. short the power switch connector on the motherboard with a screw driver for a fraction of a second just to power it on.
If it starts up and gives you a "no boot disk" or "no Operating System found" at least you will know it's working and you can slowly connect everything else one by one to see whats preventing it from booting.
If it doesn't start like that, remove the power cord from the power supply and remove the mother board battery for at least 15 minutes, this will clear the BIOS and set it back to factory spec, now carryout the out of case procedure already stated.
