    thanks !
    there are three jumper pins on the board. the system powers up with the one of the two jumpers shorted. i am assuming that is pin 1 and 2. when i set it to pin2 and pin3 shorted the system will not power up. those are the only two combinations between the three pins. so i have left it in pos 1&2.

This manual for this board has the JP1 clear CMOS jumper shown reversed. I can't remember exactly what it was (maybe mis-labeled?), I think pin 1 is shown on top in the manual, but it is on the bottom on the board. Also, Panel one (power, reset, LED's, etc...) is upside down on the board compared to the manual. Hope this helps.

    My bad. I have an older board version. It looks like the manual was corrected with version 5.

Is the cmos clear jumper in the wrong position? if it is it will drain the battery and mess up the clock, You may have to flash the eeprom with a newer version BIOS obtainable from the manufacturer, check their website on this to see if it is a known issue ( I have seen this on multiple other manufacturers main boards). If this isnt it it is possible you have a bad clock chip

Check these:
1. Battery connectors. Are they clean and firmly tight on the battery?
2. Reset the cmos. Start up the pc, go at the bios settings and load the defaults. Save and reboot. Make any changes you'd like. Check the results.

Update for SiS 2615 Display Adapter to load windows XP pro


The PC Chips MB PCCHIPS SiS746FX M848A V5.0 462 motherboard does not have onboard video, correct? So if you can obtain the make and model of your video card, you can then find the Windows XP drivers online for download. Then you would be able to provide said drivers when the "system asks you to update SiS 2615 Display Adapter driver"

*Another quick fix would be to use a different VGA card, if you have one available?




*Now, I have never been prompted to update display driver before or during a windows installation or update. So that step I would require a little more detail on. I have only been prompted for mass storage drivers (as seen in screenshot).

Motherboard CD


Hi fgetulio, PC Chips only list manual & bios file for MB M863G V5.1)
(No listing for M863G V5.1C).
You should be able to download the drivers for (M863G (V5.1A) at this link;
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=343&DetailName=Driver&DetailDesc=M863G(V5.1A)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=39&LanID=2
Create a folder & name each folder. Download the drivers listed on PC Chips web site. Uncompress each file. Than burn to CD. Each driver is separate from the other. Can not create a manufactures CD, where all drivers are installed automatically. You'll have to install the old fashioned way. one at a time.

Good luck fgetulio!

Try clearing the bios/cmos using the jumper on the board, page 10 in you're manual. Than try booting. See if you're keyboard allows you to get into the bios/cmos. I'm guessing you tried another keyboard? You can also buy a PS2 - to -USB Y adapter. This is what one looks like.

If you bought an AGP graphics card lately you might have also received a single PS2 to USB adapter free. Like this one.
http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat%5fid=104&sku=35700
It's not uncommon for the the lights to function & yet the keyboard not function. A single pin within the PS2 on the keyboard could be bent or bad or not seating correctly in you're new board.
