Question about Foxconn 661FXME Motherboard

1 Answer

I have power but nothing else. Just the CPU fan and no boot or beep. I've fitted a Foxconn 661FXME into my Desktop. I have also fitted a P4 2.4 gig processor. I have left off the Jumper for the CPU as the Northwood setting is without the jumper. The CMOS jumper is on what I believe to be the correct setting (pins 2 & 3, although I'm not 100% sure, it's a matter of perspective). There is a 1 gig samsung RAM in the DIMM 1 slot (but I have tried it in the DIMM 2 slot also). When I power this set up I get the CPU fan and nothing else. No beeps and the fan stays at full speed without settling down. I have tried changing the CMOS jumper to what could only be "the other pins 2 & 3" in case I'm looking at it from the wrong perspective and tried it without it at all. With it in the alternative position the set up wouldn't turn on at all. Without it, it did exactly the same as "normal," all fan no action. I did have the full compliment of video cards etc and stripped the computer down to this bare set up as I believe that there is enough here to at least make it beep and tell me what it's missing. I have used 2 identical RAMM cards (both new) and used 2 different 2.4 gig and a 1.6 gig processors. I am confident that I have the front panel connected correctly but I definitely have at least the power switch in the correct place. I have 2 swithes (on and reset) and 2 lights. The first light is the HDD light and it never comes on but it wouldn't would it? I don't know what the second is. It isn't labelled like the other wires (RESET SW, POWER SW, HDD LED) and is plugged into the PLED area via 2 seperate 1 pin fittings. This comes on and stays on. I am happy I've got all my +/-'s the correct way round as all the wires are colours (+) and whites (-) The motherboard is box fresh as is the RAM. The video card is old but trustworthy. The case and PSU are not fantastic. In fact, I believe the PSU is the weakest link but I do have enough power to make the processor fan go at full whack. I also tried an older PSU that didn't have the second 4 pin mother board connector and that made the fan run considerably slower. I doubt all 3 processors could be fried so I don't think that is the case. I have checked all leads and pins and am happy that I have assembled everything in a satisfactory manner and have checked and rechecked everything following advice found on this site and other media. Could it be the PSU? Have I overlooked something? There aren't anymore jumpers to set on the board. Maybe the board was broke from new. Please help! Thanks, Kaiser SaySo

My hp a 1410n desktop powers up but shuts down after five seconds

#1 on the list for this is shut down from over heat due to CPU fan not running or CPU overheat. Check to see if your CPU fan is turning on when your system is powering up. If its not.. thats your problem (get a new fan)... Even if it is it could mean the fan is not properly contacting the CPU with thermal paste. If this is the first time you\'ve powered the system up, your next step is to go out and get some thermal paste and put it under the CPU fan, if you\'ve been running the system and this problem just cropped up.. skip the thermal paste, its already there. #2 Next possibility is BIOs power settings are incompatible with your hardware. For example the frequency on the CPU is set higher then it can operate and its over heating. Some systems will automatically shut down and restart with default settings others you have to get into and set to default. can you get into BIOS? Can you reset your BIOS settings to defaults? Check your mother board manual. #3 A compenent is shorting out your system and needs to be replaced. Is the system posting prior to shutdown (beeping once on start up?) If its beeping more then once that means something else and you should read your manual. If its not beeping then its a short somewhere and you can bet you have a bad part in the system. To identify which part it is you can either disconnect things (RAM, Drives, vid card, PCI cards,ect) one at a time, attempting to start the system after each one or you can take everything but the bare bones out and try to start it. I usually take all the RAM out but one stick and start by testing them. Your RAM is the most likely place for a problem in this situation. #4 If you\'ve striped it down and it still can\'t get a boot (with no post beep). You need to replace the mother board.

I turn the pc on nd the motherboard beeps like an alarm. I've pulled everycard out, ram, cpu etc and just left the fans plugged in, but the problem still persists.

The beeps are the clue to what is wrong: Count the beeps and check against beep codes like at
Check that *********** board is listed, some use slightly different codes...

When powered on unit only beeps. continuous beeping- approx 1 every two seconds. nothing boots up at all, only beeps! Tried removing memory thinking it may be a memory issue but that was not the issue!...


If you have a Gigabyte MoBo then the CPU fan has stopped running.
Open the casing side cover and see if the CPU cooling fan is running or not.
If it does not run, the go into BIOS and disable "HDD S.M.A.R.T. Capability" in Advanced Bios Features
also set "CPU smart fan control" to disable in PC Health Status
This may be a power supply problem.
The voltages of the power supply are going out of limits.
change the power supply and see.

Power supply fan works and the cpu fan works but nothing else. then the power button is on

So you get no screen.See if during boot your keyboard 3 lights in the top right flash. Does your floppy enable? Do you get any sound from the internal speaker? If so, count the beep sequence and write it to me. That is the lowest form of diagnostic. Certain beep codes tell certain things about Video cards, memory and totally nothing would usually mean CPU. Your fan may have shut off for a while and burned it out.

Since you swapped everything, the last option will be the on-board power supply. If it has failed, then nothing will work. As a guess, I would assume the 1.8v power supply for the CPU has quit.

Cant get computer to

Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply, CPU and power switch.

Turn on the computer. You should hear 3 beeps because you removed the memory.

If you don't hear any beeps, check the power supply. Check all the connections. Did you connect the 4 pin power? Did you skimp on it? A common mistake is to get a cheap, high-power supply. Just because the box says it's 1000 WATTs doesn't mean that will carry a steady load.

Still nothing...

It's either a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another processor that is supported on that board and you know it works, try it. If it boots return your CPU for a good one.

Unfortunatly, if it doesn't boot with a known-good processor that just proves the board is bad; it doesn't prove your CPU is good. You may have more issues.
