I have a Numark HDMIX. I get the following message when I power up the unit, "There are no connected devices to browse content from. please insert media." Please help.....

This is in the wrong category, as this is a mixer and not a motherboard. Regardless, it sounds like the mixer needs a form of digital media and it is not finding one. If there is a device that seems to be connected, you may want to double check that the cables are connected correctly and are in good shape. If this is not the problem and everything else seems to be in order, there may be a problem with the mixer and I would probably contact Numark.

If I understand correctly you are looking for the pin layout to reconnect your front panel cables. Here is the link for the manual for your motherboard which should show you everything you need to know about your board.

Graphics Card compatibility?

I could tell you exactly what Graphics Adapter to buy, but
i think is better if you learn how to decide by yourself, so i recoommend you to use the following url, that will take you to your motherboard Specs( you should always visit the manufacturers websites, because nobody can help you better than them).
Often you can get updated drivers for your devices from them.
If the link doesn't work, you can copy and paste the following address:

In the Expansion Slots( the ones you use for graphics adapters) the performance decreases from top to bbottom.

I hope that help you

Help with an intel dp35dp motherboard

Hi superdarien, you can click on this link for a little help with installing a motherboard.
Connecting power from the power supply to the motherboard.
There are a few connections from the PSU to motherboard & they are important. Please open you're motherboard manual to page 11 & 12.
The letters M & T are the two most important connections. M is a 4-pin ATX_12volt plug. It can only be connected one way. There is a small plastic locking clip on the connector. Letter T is the main power connector. It as well can only be connected (one way). There is also a locking clip. (Plastic). Look at the 24 pin connector on the board.
You do not need to be a geek to hook this stuff up. You're manual will help you more than you think. Bouncing from page to page is the hardest thing to do. When you come across terms you do not understand type the term into a google search. This will help.

Extra USB connection

Hi kalimm,

Your motherboard does in fact have special connectors just for these internal USB ports. These are often called "USB headers".

Based on the manual for the board (which can be found here [LINK]), two of these are located on the bottom edge of the board, below the three PCI slots. These are labeled "USB78" and "USB56" and have nine pins in them, which should match the connector that leads to your case's USB ports. Use of these ports is described in detail on Page "1-25" of the manual and I'd strongly recommend reading through this section to verify that things match up properly.

If you need anything else, please let me know!

Splash screen reboot

ok, for what I understand you changed your motherboard, tried to boot your old windows and it went bananas on you. Wich is really not uncommon. Then you tried installing windows and your keyboard would not do anything. As far as the keyboard issue goes, I am guessing that you use a USB keyboard. Windows is such a wonderful piece of software that it's no surprise it acts up like that. Try enabling USB Keyboard support in the BIOS, or better yet, try connecting a PS2 keyboard (the round plug). Chances are everything is gonna be just fine after that.

Good luck

No booting (Smthing I never seen)

is the power supply good enough? a P4 certified? You need at least a 400W, better anything higher for a decent machine today. Low quality PSUs do that, just will not turn on. (assuming all the rest is set and connected properly as u said, otherwise there is a trilion other possibilities, like wrong cpu type, an onboard VGA card as default, CPU power cable not connected, graphics card not seated properly, IDE cable in wrong position, etc...)
