Question about Biostar TFORCE4 U 775 Motherboard

1 Answer

My PC won't turn on at all anymore...

I have a TForce4 U Ver. 1.0 mobo with AMD 3200+ processor. At first, the computer would turn on for about 30 seconds and then turn off. Then all of a sudden it shut off all together. I thought the power supply was shot, so I borrowed my friend's and it turned on; however, no signal to the monitor. So I borrowed a video card (no on board video avail), but it still had no signal. I cannot figure out the solution. There is a small red light that stays on labeled D13 on the motherboard. Don't know what that would mean. I tried resetting CMOS, but does not fix the problem. Can anyone advise on what the problem would be and how to fix it? Thanks

The problem is *********** board. If you can not get any signal but you are getting power to your motherboard then the board is not sending power anywhere else. Replace the motherboard and all will be ok

Ms 6367 ver 1 0


1) The MSI ms-6367 version 1.0 motherboard, was made especiallly for HP desktop computers.
(MicroStar International)


It is not an MSI -> O.E.M motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)
Therefore, ONLY HP would have a BIOS update for this board, and not MSI..........


2) The original Processors used were AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Maximum frequency rate, (Excuse me, 'Speed'), is 1.67GigaHertz.
(1.67GHz)
Front Side Bus frequency rate is 266MegaHertz.
(FSB = 266MHz)

You are trying to use an AMD 'Sempy' processor, that has an FSB of 333MHz.
This = No.

Why?

Because, even if you could somehow boost the FSB up to 333MHz, your ram memory would not work anymore, and your expansions slots. (i.e., PCI, AGP, etc)

(Change Voltage for processor {CPU}, or change Multiplier; in BIOS Setup utility. This would change the FSB)

Ram memory typically operates at Half of the processor's FSB.

3) I realize all you may have around is a Sempron, but let me post some facts;

A) The AMD Sempron, and the Intel Celeron are BUDGET processors. Also known as Starter processors.......
Why?

Because both have less Cache, than per se a comparable AMD Athlon XP processor, or Intel Pentium 4 processor.

(AMD Athlon XP compared to AMD Sempron;
Intel Pentium 4 compared to Intel Celeron)

What is Cache for a processor?
It is a small memory area for the Processor, and operates at the same frequency rate, ('Speed'), as the Processor.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

[Ram Memory is next, then the Harddrive.
Mechanical harddrive, or Solid State.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/computer-hard-drives-disks-channel.htm ]

A crude example if I may;

You are writing a thesis for college.
You find as you go along, that you need some additional information.
Where is it?
Down in the basement, in a box of books, last book on the bottom.
Oh, and there is NO basement light........

Down you go, flashlight in hand. Dig through the box of books, and retrieve the book you desire.
Now back up the steps, and open the book to the page you want.

OR,

You press a few keys on the computer keyboard in front of you, and have your needed info in seconds........

Less Cache = Basement scenario
More Cache = Computer scenario

I would drill a hole through that 'Sempy' processor, and make it into a necklace. (Wouldn't wear it though! lol!)

Jus sayin'.

Want to upgrade to amd athlon 2


Hi........Socket 939 is an outdated processor and not compatible with Athlon 2. You may find a 939 dual core on ebay, but suggest you save up for an AM3 mobo. Hank

Amd athlon xp 2400+ problems witha epox ep-8kra2+ motherboard?


It sounds to me like the processor that you bought is not fully supported in the current bios in your mobo. I would check the epox website for newer bios. Be careful flashing the bios, if you misstep in the flash, you may end up with a brick. If you are successful, you should be able to run the processor at the speeds you expected, though within the limits of the hardware on the mobo. Also look at the spec's for the mobo on the site to see if your processor is listed as being supported.

No signal on monitor


You might try switching the VGA cable if you haven't. If that doesn't work then I'd agree with you in saying the motherboard is likely fried.

K133ASA via Apollo motherboard cpu upgrde


Socket A/462 can take any AMD K7 family processor. The fastest you could get would be the Athlon XP 3200 I believe, but that could also include the Athlon 1400 and the Duron 1800. So it looks like you can make a significant upgrade of yhe processor.
