these guys seem to have figured it out. Looks like the board is picky about what processor you use.

This could mean either processor/board, memory or graphics, there is no info for beeps on your board, try looking for the cmos clear terminals on the motherboard (JP1) and put jumper accross pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2. Try booting up again. and hopefully only one beep. But if it still occurs then its a process of illimination with other parts and you will need spares to try it unfortunately.

MacBook Pro is slow when disconnected with electric charging.


First step would be to Reset Your Mac's SMC
The method for resetting your Mac's SMC depends on the type of Mac you have. All SMC reset instructions require shutting down your Mac first. If your Mac fails to shut down, try pressing and holding the power button until the Mac shuts down, which usually takes 10 seconds or so.

Mac portables with user-removable batteries (MacBook and most MacBook Pros):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Disconnect your Mac portable from its MagSafe connector.
3.Remove the battery.
4.Press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds.
5.Release the power button.
6.Re-install the battery.
7.Reconnect the MagSafe connector.
8.Turn your Mac on.
Mac portables with non-user-removable batteries (MacBook Air and some late 2009 MacBook Pro models):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Connect the MagSafe power adapter to your Mac and to a power outlet.
3.On the built-in keyboard (this will not work from an external keyboard), simultaneously press and hold the left shift, control, and option keys while you press the power button. Release all keys at the same time.
4.Press the power button to start your Mac.

Mac desktops (Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug your Mac's power cord.
3.Press and hold the Mac's power button for 15 seconds.
4.Release the power button.
5.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
6.Wait five seconds.
7.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.

Alternative SMC reset for Mac Pro:

If you have a Mac Pro that isn't responding to the normal SMC reset as described above, you can force a manual SMC reset by using the SMC reset button located on the Mac Pro's motherboard.

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug the Mac's power cord.
3.Open the Mac Pro's side access panel.
4.Just below the Drive 4 sled and adjacent to the top PCI-e slot is a small button labeled SMC. Press and hold this button for 10 seconds.
5.Close the Mac Pro's side door.
6.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
7.Wait five seconds.
8.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.
Now that you have reset the SMC on your Mac, it should be back to operating as you expect. If the SMC reset didn't fix your problems, you can try combining it with a PRAM reset. Although the PRAM works differently than the SMC, it can, depending on your Mac model, store a few bits of information that the SMC uses.

I want to connect a 8x agp card to 4x agp slot. is there any possibility? my m/b is Albatron PM266A Pro


Hi,

The answer is "maybe".

It depends on a number of factors, the main one being what graphics card you are putting in. Some graphics cards can "clock down" from 8x to 4x and some cannot.

If your graphics card is able to it will say on the box.

It also depends on your power supply. The new 8x graphics cards can take a lot more power than the older 4x and if you don't have a good power supply the system will just not start up.

The best thing you can do, if you already have all the parts, is give it a go. It won't cause any damage, it will either not turn on and not work or turn on and work.

If it doesn't turn on it won't work with the hardware you have and you will have to remove the graphics card but no damage will be caused.

Regards,
sjstore2

Hi. i am trying to assemble an HP xw4300 workstation. i recently bought from ebay a refurbished motherboard. everything works and the unit started up fine. but at 30% of copying files windows xp sp2,...


Was the hard drive were using new, or used? It sounds to me like it had a virus on it. I've seen that scenario before! Some malware (in particular, TDL4 and variations of it), create hidden partitions that most antivirus products never find! But all the drive has to do to get reinfected is to pass over that area on the hard disk. But if your hard disk was brand new, then I am very likely "barking up the wrong tree," if you know what I mean!

The first thing that you should do is check the manufacturer's Web site for the drivers and everything that you need should be found. ALWAYS check the manufacturer's Web site (using the model #) when in need of drivers, whether software or hardware.

The manufacturer of your PM266A Pro board is Albatron. You should find drivers for that board HERE. I don't know what operating system you're using (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Linux, etc) but, if you're using Windows XP (with at least Service Pack 1) or Windows 2000 (with at least Service Pack 4) then you WILL NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE USB DRIVERS.

I inserted a link directly to the page on Albatron's site where these drivers are located. If you click on the word HERE in this paragraph or the one above, it will take you to the page.

This is not a brand new board so, if I were you, I would also take a look at the BIOS updates for this board. Albatron has several updates listed for download. Updating the system BIOS is important because it can prevent you from having pesky little issues with your system and also allows you to add/enable certain features/hardware on the board. It's pretty much just upgrading the board. Compare your version to those versions they have listed in the available updates. The best thing to do would be to download and install the latest BIOS update. Follow this link for BIOS updates.

Everything that you need to know about your board should be on Albatron's Web site. I hope this helps you now and in the future event that you need to find drivers.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Try booting with the battery removed. Other than that, this looks like a serious problem that will require a repair service.
