Wish Chaintech 6BTM to wake up from power back

I've been using an old computer (MB Chaintech 6BTM, ATX case) as an unsupported server. Everything is working OK except one thing: in case of a power failure, when power is up again, the system does not boot up expecting someone to press the button to start. I know that the modern mothherboards can be set up so that they automatically boot up on power back, but not my 6BTM. The 6BTM can wake up from keyboard, LAN, modem but not from utility power. How can I make it to start by just "plugging it in the outlet"? Thanks for any ideas.

Re: Wish Chaintech 6BTM to wake up from power back

It may be a setting called ups in control panel>power options and make sure ups is enabled and set up correctly. The only other way to do it is from the power connectors on the motherboard from the front panel, if you get the + and - the wring way round it will make the pc turn on without the use of the button

For a Chaintech 9BIA motherboard;

Motherboard chipset is an Intel 845,

PC133 (SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz;

{Single Data Rate. The proper term, not just Sdram.
Double Data Rate Sdram is Sdram.
Double Data Rate 2 Sdram is Sdram.
Double Data Rate 3 Sdram is Sdram.
DDR Sdram, DDR2 Sdram, DDR3 Sdram.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory )

Low-Density, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, Cas Latency of 3

(Don't get some cr@p off of Ebay.
It's usually high-density, ECC, that was used by old server computers)

WHEW! Unless you just want to run 1GB of ram memory, I would toss that board! (Two 512MB sticks) ->

-> Need two 1GB sticks of SDR Sdram at 133MHz

$400 smakeroos USD!!

Bah! That is just cra-zy!

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

IF, you only have ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot closest to the processor socket.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

Gigabyte GA970AUD3 Refuses to Boot

did you replace the PSU power supply unit with a new or a heavy duty one
if its struggling with the fans winding you might need more power /grunt
also check cmos battery for a secure seating and has plenty of charge/power
check leads from motherboard to hard drive make sure all connections are secure
i read something about low resistance fuses on your motherboard you might want to check these

check the ammount of ram and compatability
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
hope this helps you

I want to know how connect the power led sw ,reset sw,hdd ledand my mother board is a chain 7AIA5 I DONT HAVE THE MANUAL I WOULD LIKE TO GET ONE PLS. THANKYOU

Chaintech supposedly has an ftp server with their old stuff on it, but it wasn't working for me. I found this obscure ftp site that does actually have all the manuals on it though:

They are all self-extracting archives but I would recommend using 7-zip or another zip program to extract the files.

Iam interested in up-grading to a new mother board, and or wondering about what parts would be compatible to do so!

This depends upon how old the desktop computer is, if is more than say 5 years old then the power supply may not have the the right ATX power connector for the new motherboard (ATX2 has 24 pins, ATX has 20 pins). I would get a new hard drive they do fail with age.
You could reuse the CD/DVD drive, plus the graphic card, and sound card if it is not part of the motherboard, also the monitor, keyboard, mouse (but these are low cost items)
Basically by the time you strip everything out of the case and put in new components, you would be better getting a new computer.
Then remove your data from the hard drive and sell the computer or network it to your new computer and use it as a backup file server.

No sound after re install win 98

Get the drivers disk ready for you win98 hardware (or download from website)

I bet you have to uninstall the sound card from device manager first and the restart the computer. Then try to install the sound driver again. If that does not work you may have to force install the driver from the add new hardware wizard in control panel.

that should get the sound card installed.

Compaq 120694-101 Motherboard would like to totally upgrade


Your PC case will hold any atx motherboard with 4 or less expansion slots. Just about everything made now will fit. You will have to replace your power supply if it still has the standard factory unit installed. The newer boards require an ATX power supply with the additional 4 pin plug for extra power to the CPU. Go to newegg and look for combo deals, they run them all the time. Here is a gigabyte board that is very nice. GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H Micro ATX AMD Motherboard image-3300643-10440897

I hope this solution helps you out.
