Question about Abit SG-80 Motherboard

1 Answer

Got power, but no booting activity

Hi, I just bought a brand new SG-80, placed it in my cabinet and plugged everything in (CD, HDD, Floppy, front pannel devices, etc.), but when I tried to boot, to install WinXP SP2, I got no boot activity at all. FP LEDs display constant HDD act., but no PWR act., LED works OK (already checked it for propper functioning by switching places with both LEDs). Floppy's LED stays on, & CD doesn'st work if it's plugged in. Already read other guys' problems, but all of them actually got their MB to work at the begining; mine doesn't work at all. The CPU's fan bends the MB but not as in the picture displayed in the other issue. Haven't tried using the eraser, but figured out something better would come up. Thank you everybody.

Assuming you have compatable memory fitted to the mobo; if you cannot get as far as the power on self test (P.O.S.T) or into the bios to set it up, remove all components you have fitted apart from the memory and the hard drive and a graphics card if not on board graphics and see if you can get as far as the post screen. If nothing appears and you just get a flashing cursor, then either the bios chip is faulty, or you have possibly stressed the board when fitting components and accidently broke a soldered contact. If you do get the post try putting back one peice of hardware at a time until you come across the problem part.

    Yes the system will not boot without memory, you have to fit a memory stick, otherwise nothing will happen.

My ABIT sg-72 motherboard boot attempt from HDD says "NTLDR is missing". The only Enabled boot device is HDD. If I change boot device in setup to CD (Windows XP distr disk), that boots up and...


first check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one that contains Windows.
check that there are no CDs or DVDs 3 1/2 inch floppy discs
in the CD/DVD,3.1/2 floppy drives ,and no removable usb drives plugged in to the usb ports
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 if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps

You don't need the install floppy... hit the F12 key when booting and you will get a boot order selection and tell it to boot to the CD. If it still doesn't see the HDD then you are most likely having a disk read problem with your hard drive. If that is the case you should boot into the system BIOS and see if the HDD is recognized there.

you can safely install up to a 80 GB HDD in that compaq. When getting into the bios go to the boot sequence section and change the boot squence to be CD=>HDD=>FLOPPY or FLOPPY=>CD=>HDD

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.

No Booting to BIOS, Monitor just stays on Save


If there are no beeps at all on boot up it's a memory timing problem, Go into bios in standard bios settings menu and disable 'Halt On All Errors' if it isnt already, this may show up the problem in the initial power on self test.
