Standby does not turn off the computer. It reduces power consumption but does not turn the CPU off or the power supply. Because the cpu is still on the cooling fan stays on to cool it. If you want it to turn the fan off or be silent I suggest using hibernate or shutting it down completely.

Smoke smell from pc after ram change


yep, your mobo is fried, DDR2 and DDR do not share quite the same pin payout. Toasty Mobo, but on the plus side now you'll be able to buy one that has better driver support.

And kudos for hiring an assistant who shoehorned RAM into a slot it did not fit in and firing it up.

I have three different FOXCONN 6150 motherboards, all three have the same problem that they will not turn completely off when you shut down windows and they will not sleep or hybernate properly. Windows...


Never had that problem but I would say if you have these set up as 3 separate pc's it is very weird. Not sure to what extent or effort you put into actually testing each machine with each OS you mention. The odds of an exact mobo hardware issue like this is slim to none, same with bios. My 1st thought is the wiring. I assume you built all 3. If the wiring is not correct it will not shut down properly and the only matching thing besides the mobo maker is you.

I have bios version 1008 on the computer. Should i update the bios version to the newest one? The fans are always running, they never shut down


Actually if your MOBO are working fine as of now no need to update the BIOS version. Updating BIOS version may affect some parts of MOBO so no need to update the BIOS version.

I accidentally updated my bios and can't get windows to boot. All I get is a solid dash in the upper left corner and Can't do anything but manually power down.. How can I get the default bios back


sounds like you may have installed the wrong bios. Did you keep a backup copy of the old 1. You should have been prompted to save a copy.
Second thing is to report exactly what was said in an error message..."something/something" really does not cut it.
Lastly it maybe that your mobo just fried itself.One should not just go to doing a bios flash unless absolutely neccesary.
You might try to restart and enter the bios again and click on the install default tab and see if it will restore the default settings. You may have to reset the date/time settings. then save and exit. If the cpu fan does not remain running shut down immediately and try placing a house fan to blowing directly into the pc and try to reboot again. If the cpu fan shuts down again then you probably blew the mobo

No post to bios on new pc build


FIRST....... Make sure you remove the stock thermal compund (pasty/sticky stuff) from the bottom of the heat sink as well as from the top of the cpu.........

Second APPLY some ARCTIC SILVER 5 compound-ust a thin coat of it over the top of the cpu......use an old credit card.....keep it ff the sides and bottom though......it's important not to use too much........one little tube will do anywhere from 3 to 5 CPUs...!!!
(stock thermal paste/thermal compunds......**** BADLY and can cause a cpu to burn up)

reseat (properly) the cpu and carefull

Now make sure you're 24 pin or 20+4Pin Power connectors are connected, as well as your fans..........disconnect all your SATA Devices, and remove everything but the video card , CPU, and fans.......Now it should post (if all your jumpers are set correctly...........


IF it still doesn't post, remove the video card and reboot.

If it doesn't beep at all......... You have one of 2 things.........A DEAD CPU, or a DEAD MOBO

Not Booting


Hi, This is an old board trying to run a hungry CPU. From the symptom you describe the poor thing may be wearing out right in front of you. Anyhow, - In order of likelihood your problem(s) are probably:
1 - Defective motherboard. PC chips is well known as a maker of cheap mobos. When run even a little hot they have a short lifespan. A 3Ghz Pentium Prescott needs a lot of power. A faulty part may not always kill a session but it can ruin your life. Try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz. See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling the support chips may help. Best solution is replace this old warrior with a new mobo. You will also need a new PSU & CPU if this is the problem. Except for playing games, even slow dual core CPUs will perform better than a single core unit.
2 - Bad PSU. These also wear out, especially if run hot. Best solution is new PSU. If you do this, get a modern model that will handle a mobo upgrade should that also become necessary. Many options & prices here - be careful.
3 - Bad PCI card or RAM. If you already haven't - try removing all unnecessary hardware... then test for problem. Switch your DDR2 RAM in & out to test for defect.
4 - Bad CPU. Not likely but possible. try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz(if this mobo lets you). See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling might be the hot tip

The power on my pc keeps recycling


remove all hardware except RAM n CPU and then try it if the system gives you a disply then add all hardware 1 by 1 and keep checkin this way you can find the problem with the harware compatibility if the system wont disply then check the mobo for RAMs and CPU respectively if the problem presists then you have the BAD BOARD.-
