Question about EliteGroup GeForce 6100SM-M Motherboard

1 Answer

No activity whatsoever

I'm an IT Manager with 20 years experience. First, I can't see on the mobo where to hook up the speaker to check diagnostic beeps. Second, it flat out died tonight, I'm using an Ultra case..don't know the model number of the case. I've been running Windows 7 beta for a little while, walked away, and the damn thing powered down abruptly.

I've pulled all the cables, re-seated the memory and CPU, but all I get is a quick red flash on the power light when I push the power button. I tried another power supply (assuming this one had died) same reaction. Can someone either point out the PC Speaker hookup for me on the 6100SM, or if you know what a quick red LED flash is upon power-up, that would be great. I assume something died, but the manual is sparse, and so is Google Search.

TIA

    Thank you. Although I could not get the diagnostic codes to be audible, that in and of itself led me to pull each component and test them in another mobo. The problem was with the old mobo, I purchased a new one.

Main Speaker Not Working


IS there a circuit board inside that speaker? You are correct about the general loss of sound quality that usually occurs with speaker failure. Best way to check is with a meter or a scope

I am installing a kenwood cd receiver kdc-mp205 every thing is hooked up but the screen says protect wat is the problem?


Hello.. sorry to hear you are having problems. With the Kenwood car stereos, when they detect a bad speaker in the car, they go into protect mode to keep from burning up the outputs of the stereo. Either you have a bad speaker in the car or a speaker wire that is touching metal (grounded out). You can cut all of the speaker wires loose at the radio and reset the radio. Then turn the radio on and hook each speaker up one at a time until it goes into protect and that will let you know where your problem is located. Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!

MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard audio VERY quiet.. I can't tune the volume very loud at all. The board is brand new. I can hear the audio from the external speakers when volumes are set to highest levels...


Check to make sure the following:
  • You have the speakers plugged into the 'green'-colored sound connectors at the back of the mobo.
  • Also make sure that your 'Windows Sounds' aren't set low. Sometimes I set my Sound Properties (accessible when you double-click the speaker icon in the taskbar) to 'lose' that setting, to keep things simple. But if your overall volume is at 100%, and this setting is at around 20% or below, you could experience this issue.
  • If these are not powered speakers, you know what I'm saying here...
I'll check back in later to see if this helped you. Mike

I have a 1400 watt cruch amp & i hooked it up myself. when i turn the radio on the power wire on the amp comes on, bt if the audio cords are hooked up, the protection light comes on. if i dnt hook the...


Should the amplifier go into protect mode, simply disconnect all RCA and speaker leads, while keeping +12 volt, power ground and remote leads connected.

1. Now turn the amplifier back on, and if the diagnostic LED lights, the amplifier has an internal fault.

2. If not, plug the RCA cables back, and reset the amplifier. If it goes into diagnostic now, the fault lies in the input, either with bad cables or source unit.

3. If the amplifier seems fine with RCA cables plugged in, connect the speakers, one at a time, and if one of the speakers or its wiring is faulty, it will activate the diagnostic
system.

Nothing coming up on the monitor


This is very difficult to troubleshoot because there are too many unknowns.
Does the mobo have diagnostic LEDs? The changes in indicators would indicate the boot up activity is taking place. If you have no visual indicators, then
You might have to get a boot up code display. This is a device that connects to the bus (via pci / pcie slot in most cases) and has a digital readout. When the mobo stops on a certain code, you will have to lookup the code to determine where it's getting stuck.
If you have no access to a diagnostic card, then some of the other very "elementary" things you can do are:
Listen for the beep code. If the speaker doesn't beep at all, then your CPU is likely not running the POST test. Check your power on LED. Check your HDD LED to see if any disk activity (hdd detection) takes place.
Other than that, you're SOL without some equipment.
Good luck!

Speakers are not working


try these. remove ac adapter and battery. press and hold on the power button for 15 seconds. plug back ac adapter and battery. download the latest bios for your system from the manufacturer's website. if still same problem try a system restore from the time when everything was working fine. try an external speakers check if the audio jacks are working. if all fails replace mobo. if external speakers ok then replace laptop internal speakers.

No audio from speakers--- Abit NF-7 v2.0 MOBO----


Same configuration? (Same: Mobo, Processor, Hard Drive?) Just new case and cables? Do you have onboard sound, are you running a sound card, or perhaps you're plugged into a fancy graphics card sound port?. Try these configuration tips before you tear it all apart: Check your device manager in the system section and make sure your intended sound device is operational with no (!), or (?) alerts next to it. Reinstall any mobo, graphics card, or sound card drivers which run your sound device. AND finally, if you have more than one sound device on your computer (mine has all 3 options I described), make SURE you have the right one selected in your sound manager!
