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

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...

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok

First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Long beep when power on PC

Usually any kind of clear distinctive beep while booting up is an error code. If you get a long beep with no display then it could be the memory or CPU. Check to make sure all of your cards are pushed in all the way. Just take your hand and push on your memory, cpu, and other cards gently but firmly to make sure they are seated. Also make sure that everything is connected. You may have missed connecting power to something.

Monitor will not turn on after booting computer

if you have onboard video try a video card that fits in PCI or AGP slot or try a different video card in place of the one you use
with everything else seeming to be correct this seems like the only thing you have not done

You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!

No power up

Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!
