First off I have to press the some button down on the motherboard for my computer to start or else it wont start i dunno why its like that, and second of all when I start it up after the computer counts up the ram it tells me this
162- system options not set
and then when i press F1 to save the settings (which I have to do everytime i start up the computer) it sends me another message that says
219- ECC memory module detected. ECC modules not supported on this platform..

Re: Replace motherboard Hp a705w
Techguru2009: First you need to disable the ECC memory module in the BIOS settings. Don´t know what button you are talking about on the motherboard. Check your manual for the motherboard to see what that button is for.Careful how you change your BIOS settings OK. You might want to load defaults first to see if that helps.

Fastest way to reset BIOS is to remove the CMOS battery (looks like a large watch battery on Motherboard) for 30 minutes. After you replace the battery, the BIOS should reset to default. If further problems arise involving the BIOS, it's possible the CMOS battery is bad.
1)unplug all the peripherals from the computer,press the power button and hold it,then connect the peripherals.
2)open the tower and try to reseat the ram and the memomy slot.
3)try to go to BIOS screen,if it gets stuck while going to bios,shut down the computer,disconnect the sata cable of the harddrive,try to boot the computer to bios without the hard drive connected,if it goes to bios properly with the harddrive cable disconnected,that means hard drive has gone bad.motherboard is alrite.
If you have another Socket 478, you can probably use it with your CPU. This is not a guarantee, but in my experience, it should work. If you come up with one, you can probably check the specs on the manufacturer's site to make sure it will support your components that are in the present board. Sure worth a try. One problem is you might have to do some case mods to make the other motherboard fit. Many of the manufacturers get their boards and cases custom-made.
That's because it has a failing power supply. I post this a lot. Why? Because 70% or more of computer failure, is directly related to the power supply. Next up is Electrolytic Capacitor failure on the motherboard, (The 'Caps' that surround the processor, more specifically. These are Voltage Regulators for the processor)
Then harddrive failure.
Many times you'll see a solution posted to use a Restoration disk, or System Restore. This is just a 'Band-Aid' approach. The power supply, for you, is the problem.
I had the same problem, I unplugged my computer to move it before it had fully powered down.It wouldn’t start and all I got was the flashing lights.
I asked a friend who suggested I remove the power to the motherboard then reinsert it while it’s hot.Here’s what I did.Unplug the computer.Touch something metal so you’re grounded and don’t create a static shock on the motherboard.Now GENTLY pull the 16pin wire harness off the motherboard. Now plug the computer power cord back in.Then GENTLY plug the motherboard back in.With any luck the fan will start up and the computer will begin booting up.It seems to be some type of problem where the power supply doesn’t recognize the motherboard so it doesn’t do anything until it “sees it”?Probably some type of a safety to prevent motherboard burnout?
