Question about Asrock K7S8XE Motherboard

1 Answer

ASROCK K7S8X in power save mode.

This week my home pc has needed several attempts i.e. restarting it to get it fully operational.
Now nothing is showing but a blank screen saying “In power save mode”
Have tried rebooting to no avail, have replaced internal battery with new one, no change with now or without any.
Have tested video card & monitor on other pc both ok.
Computer AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 500 mb of RAM, running Windows XP Professional, service pack 3.
Have also removed memory & tried elsewhere, both fine.

    I've worked it out now, tried the hard drive in an other pc its fine as well, so it looks like the motherboard is wrecked.

When you replaced the internal battery you also reset the cmos adjustments,500 mb ram ? 526 maybe, not alot but won't affect startup,start from scratch,disconnect anything not associated w/start up cd drive,omit video card.and plug monitor into mobo (if there is a d-sub).You need to get to your bio's,restart comp while depressing delete.when bios shows up reload default settings.and start can't resolve this without getting into bio's good luck

How to change battery on asrock k7s8x motherboard

A coin-cell battery (CR2032) usually powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. The battery is 3 Volts, 3/4" in diameter and has an estimated life of three years. When the computer is plugged in, the standby current from the power supply extends the life of the battery.
Just open the desktop, locate the CMOS (Coincell) and remove using screw driver. Replace the battery with CR2032 or an equivalent one.The following brands are used interchangeably for this item: Energizer (ECR2032), Duracell, Panasonic, Eveready, and 3M etc, which can be purchased from any local electronics store.

Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

K7S8X's BIOS P2.30 doesnt start...

This is not a fault..What actually happened was the same BIOS was backed up on both of the jumpers..This could happen while upgrading after installing a new graphics card..So its not a problem..You will just need to flash the BIOS..You can find it on your motherboard's support site or let me know and i will get you a link..Also if you need any help flashing it feel free to report back.
