Question about Asrock K7S41GX Socket A SIS741GX FSB333 Motherboard

1 Answer

Turns off in a fraction of a second

My computer is about 3 years old, and has always worked fine, but after moving the computer won't stay on. When I hit the power button, it immediately turns off, staying on just long enough to get the fans spinning. I don't get any beeps. After I turn in on once, it won't turn back on for a while.

I thought it might be the CPU overheating, so I swapped it out along with the heat sink, but get the same problem. I've tried resetting all connections, strip out all extra components, but the problem persists.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust in its socket

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
hope this help you

No POST/Black Screen


Believe it or not, clearing the CMOS might actually help. Make sure you do it right by completely unplug the power cord or turn off the PSU, then take the battery out.

It also sounds like the CPU might be too hot. Look under the fan of the heatsink and see if there is any dust that will block the airflow. When the computer is on, touch the heatsink and feel if it is really warm. If it is really warm, it's a good sign, you might just need more airflow. If it is cold, you might need to reinstall the heatsink/apply new thermal compounds.

I would check the video card to make sure it is seated properly and clear from any dust and lent in the slot.

Also, make sure the fan/heatsink is on properly. If your processor isn't staying cool, it will turn on for a few seconds then shut off.

2nd sata connected and xp won't boot


Hi,
It seems you have not made the second SATA the slave of first SATA. You'll have to fix the jumper pin in the designated slot to make the second SATA the slave. a1d66e3.jpg

No signal on monitor


You might try switching the VGA cable if you haven't. If that doesn't work then I'd agree with you in saying the motherboard is likely fried.
