Question about EliteGroup ECS A780GM-A Motherboard - AMD 780G, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit

1 Answer

Just put together A780GM-A MOBO With dual processor amd and used my harddrive from my old system. It comes up to cmos setup, but it won't boot to windows. It comes up with the screen that ask you if you want to start in safe mode, but won't start from any of them. It also has a low beep followed by a high pitched beep everytime it tries to boot.

That mean you if you put a hardisk into the mobo but you never format the disk along with the mobo you need to do so. you need to format/install win xp/vista on the hard drive so that it can work with the mobo.
So here is the point, if you have a new mobo, whenever you put hardisk on it, you must format the hardisk with win xp/vista.

Restart your computer

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

What dual core CPU is compatable with the dragon plus?


hello sir, hi im afraid that the dragon plus has no AMD x2 (DUAL CORE) compatible CPU. if you want a dual core motherboard compatible, get the socket AM2 version for AMD or the LGA 775 for intel processor.

I just upgraded to a Elitegroup A780GM-A motherboard, AMD 64 X2 cpu, and 4GB RAM kit. I kept my 250GB Seagate HDD that has XP Pro on it with all my important data. The problem is all devices show ok after...


It is still trying to load the drivers for your old system board which apparently are not compatible with your new board. You need to boot from the XP CD and repair your existing Windows installation. It should redetect all components and install the proper drivers for the motherboard components.

Just installed new mobo (ecs 6100sm-m) and boot up issue


from my experience, you will need to format when changing the hardware you have changed. are there files on the drive that you need? if so id recommend putting your old motherboard back in to backup the drive then rebuild and format. thats if it wasnt faulty to start off with.

hope it helps

Cannot start the computer, no reaction


When you say you have a new hard drive do you mean you already partitioned it and formatted it? It will not boot to your hard drive until a Master Boot Record is built. You have to boot to your operating system in the CD ROM, then follow directions to load onto the HDD.
