Question about Foxconn G31MX-K socket LGA775 motherboard

1 Answer

System does not boot on 1st attempt

My machine does not boot on 1st attempt when I hit the power switch the computer starts and gets stuck on the initial Foxconn screen. After a few moments of switching off the computer & restarting then the system boots without an issue. But now I have to repeat this process about 3 times in order to get the system running.

I am using a XFX Nvidia Geforce 8600GT graphics card. When I switch to onboard VGA this problem does not arrise.

Awaiting your swift reply.

    Power outlets are working fine. This power supply unit I am using now is a new 1 which i bought very recently. The computer starts & then hangs in the "Foxconn" logo stage, even before the RAM & IDE devices are configured.

you might be able work your way through the problem



When a computer completely fails to boot or to provide any sort of power on self-test (POST) beep codes, the cause is either a hardware failure, lack of power or a bad connection.


To solve these problems, it helps to start with potential environmental causes first, such as a problem with the AC power being supplied to the computer.


From there, a good rule of thumb is to simply start disconnecting items from the computer one at a time until just the CPU, motherboard, RAM and power supply remain connected, and then swapping in known good replacements for them.


Test the AC power to make sure there is power to the outlet. Inspect the back of the power supply to ensure the power cord is fully seated, the power switch is on and the voltage setting is set to the right voltage, which is typically 110 volts.


Inspect the inside of the computer for any signs of burned components, such as capacitors or integrated circuits that are deformed or discolored, and replace the affected expansion card, motherboard, drive or other device if damage is located.


Verify a proper connection for each expansion card, cable, drive and stick of RAM by disconnecting and reconnecting each item without removing it from the system.


This can sometimes clean corroded or loose contacts and solve minor problems that prevent the system from booting.


Disconnect the drives and remove all of the expansion cards except for the video card, and try to boot with a bare system composed of only the power supply, motherboard, CPU and cooling fan, RAM, and video.


Attempt to start the computer again. If the system boots, reinstall the removed items one at a time until the system again fails to boot, and then replace the component that is causing the failure.


If the bare system fails to boot, swap in known good components for the motherboard, RAM, video card, power supply and CPU until the system boots.


Swap components into a working computer one at a time until that system fails to boot in order to locate problem components.


Hope this helps.

Sounds like it is trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Make sure you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the cd/dvd drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and the screen for which key it says to hit to Change The Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Select the Hard Drive as the boot device and let it boot up. If you are successful then each time you boot you will need to do this process unless you make it a permanent change.

To make a permanent change to the boot process turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to restart and boot again. Once you are in the Bios or System Setup look for any reference to Boot, Boot Sequence or Boot Order. It might be a tab you you select at the top of the window. Change the boot order to CD\DvD as 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot order so that if anything goes wrong with the hard drive, you can boot from the cd/dvd by putting in a repair disk or operating system disk. Just make sure you don't have a music cd, movie dvd or anything in the cd/dvd drive when you boot. Save the settings and exit the Bios or System Setup and Reboot.

Computer doesnt boot usb


Can you boot from the hard drive?

When you turn the computer on watch the screen for which key to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when the message is shown or you will have to start over.

The screen will also show you which key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit the key when the message is shown or it will not work and you will have to restart.

Computer starts up but nothing comes up on the screen


Depending on the type of computer you have, when rebooting keep hitting the F1 key or F2 key or the F10 and when the options come up select the main hard drive (c:\ )and hit enter.should boot up to main drive. If it a Mac, take out battery and plug in power adaptor and hold start up key until machine starts up. once booted plug battery back in.

Windows not loading and monitor not switching on


Usualy the red light is the LED for the harddrive. Have you removed the hardrive and replaced it? Is there a reason that maby the power connector is not attached. Also, Is this computer a privately built pc or is a general manufacturer, like Hp, Dell Compaq etc. Also, If the battery on the motherboard has gone south then the bios setup setting will not be saved and the machine would not know how to boot. If the drives are all connected correctly, when you first boot the machine start tapping the del button. Depending on the Mfr, For some Hp's you need to tap the f1 key, there should be a message during the first part of the boot where it says, "To enter setup hit del, or F1 or etc." After you are in the blue screen of the bios, look for a message that says enter default settings. Hit that key, then F10 to save, exit, and boot. If this fixes the problem, then you will see the red LED for the hard drive illuminate and if the hard drive is intact with the OS then it should boot up. If it does boot up, after you are finished for the day, shut your system off as you usually would. The next time that you boot your system, if you have to enter the bios setup and enter the default setting again, then more than likely it is the motherboard battery. It is a bit difficult to diagnose something like this on the cuff. There are other conditions that can cause this like a damaged motherboard, bad memory, jumpers incorrectly set on the drives or motherboard just to mention a few. Hopefully this can be a place to start anyway.

1st make a backup of all the data you want saving.

2. find out your recovery cd or operating system cd.

3. insert the cd and then reboot.

4. on the start up key the first screen you see about 3 secs after turing back on hit the hot key.

could be F2 or F8 depends on your mother board.

if its neither of these watch carefully on the startup screen it should tell you wich key it is but be quick cause it will only be up for about 2 secsa :-)

when the cd boots up just follow the instructions.

please rate my solution on how it helped you.

any more quiestions or if u get stuck just reply to this post.

PC Won't Start After Initial Post


make sure the ram is the same name of kind. if you can get the old computer on, hit the esc key and go in the bois and hit save, and restart. this should bring the computer back up. check the piggs (jumpers) on the motherboard to see if all are the same, more them around and try each one, I hope this will help you.
