P4MBMS Motherboard Problem

Hi, I hope some can help me, I just installed a new Mach Speed MoBo and I can not get to the Bios, all I get is a black screen. I'm trying to install win Xp Pro and having no luck. I've switched mem. sticks, tried the on board video and checked the processor several times. Using an Intel P4 3.2 processor, (2) DDR 512 sticks and an Nvidia 5500 256MB card, 400 watt supply and a creative sound card (Audigy). Please Help! Tony

Re: P4MBMS Motherboard Problem

Try to solve th eproblem by process of ellimination. On another PC or working mother board, chaeck the video card and memory modules. Unless you are sure that the memory and video card is OK, trying them all together with an untested motherboard will difficult. If you are sure that the Video and memory is OK and still the motherboard will not start, we can narrow down the problem to the mo bo, CPU and Power supply. If the board switches on (LED lights and CPU fan starts) we can rule out th epower supply and we are sure that the problem is in the motherboard / CPU. if this is the case, return the board for replacement. If it eill not power on ( no LED lights and the CPU fan will not start), then it might be that the power switch is not connected properly to the motherboard or the Power supply is defective.

Does a core duo processor fit into a P4MBMS

Hi, you can download a manual here:

CPU Support: Fully Support Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 CPU Up to 3.6Ghz

There could be a bios issue when supporting a dual core cpu.
You should read the manual carefully before you continue.

Good luck.

Hello, Trying to update this motherboard, now cpu celeron 3.20G 533ghz and would like to update to pentium 4 3.6G 800ghz that the user's manual says is doable. The problem is the motherboard will not...

Always remember that when you add new hardware like a processor or faster memory you have to clear the CMOS to reset the BIOS to defaults so it will recognize the new hardware. Sometimes you have to do this with hard drives particularly SATA drives.

On the motherboard, near the motherboard battery look for a small coloured plastic jumper. If your motherboard has one it will be marked as CLR_CMOS. Just move the jumper to the other position and press the on/off button. That will clear the CMOS.

If you don't have a CMOS jumper then remove the power cord from the back of the computer and take out the BIOS battery for half an hour or so. Replace the battery and plug in power. Turn the computer on and hopefully the the computer will boot and you will see a splash/post screen. If you do remember to set the correct date and time in the BIOS utility.

If your still not getting a post screen go back and check the processor is compatible with the motherboard. Check that the processor is locked in the socket properly and also check to make sure your system memory is seated properly.

Post back if need anymore advice.

System Freeze

sc122870, try this first disconnect the hard drive cable and then try getting into bios, also try disconnecting both cables to the cdrw and to the hard drive and try to get into the bios. Sometimes if the pin assignments on the 2 drives are wrong, bios will freeze. If it does the same problem with the 2 drives unhooked then it might be your mobo.
