Question about Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard

Computer will not boot - no signal getting to monitor

I have been given a computer for my grandaughter. When irt arrived there was no Hard Drive and the memory card was "loose.
I have fitted the memory card and added a Seagate 40gig hard drive.
When connecting the computer to the monitor, Key board, mouse, switch it on and the monitor just remains black - nothing appears. The motherboard shows AS Rock, and ATA 133. I know that the battery has been taken out and then put back in again. I think that the computer was originally "built" at a computer show.
Originally when starting I had the 3 long beeps, I have taken the memory card out and put it back in and now there is no beep at all.
I have tried another card (from another computer), and it gives me 3 long beeps, but I know this card is OK (working in other computer).

Have you check the video card, is it loose, not sitting right, beeps are either memory, video or a bad mobo. here's a list of beep codes; the numbers represent the amount of beeps
1   The memory refresh circuitry has failed 2   Parity errors have been detected in the first 64 KB of memory 3   A failure has occurred within the first 64 KB or memory 4   System Timer failure: Timer 1 on the mainboard does not work properly 5   The CPU has generated an undetectable error 6 8042 Gate-A20 failure: BIOS cannot switch the CPU into protected mode 7   The CPU has generated an exception error 8   The video adapter is missing, or the memory on the adapter has generated a failure 9   The ROM checksum value does not match the value in BIOS 10     The shutdown register for CMOS interrupt channel 2 has failed POST; the system board cannot retrieve CMOS contents during POST 11 Level-2 cache memory has failed the tests, and has been disabled 2 short POST has failed, caused by a failure of one of the hardware tests 1 long, 2 short Failure in video system: a checksum error was encountered in video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered 1 long, 3 short Failure in video system: the video DAC, the monitor detection procedure or the video RAM has failed 1 long POST procedures have passed

No signal on monitar


This can be a large number of problems.
If there is no fan noise or hard drive activity, check the power supply first.
If the computer boots, (Normal hard drive activity) the usual problem is that the BIOS is trying to boot to a PCI video card if the monitor is known to be OK. (Tested on a different PC.).
Reset the BIOS as the first test in this case.
The default is AGP/Onboard.

Just installed a new Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, 4 GB RAM (Corsair DDR3 1333), AMD Phenom II multi-core processor (X6 1055T), 750 W power supply, Maxtor 500 GB hard drive and a Blu Ray DVD Drive. ...


motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

No signal to monitor at boot. windows starts then monitor goes black


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket

The motherboard starts up with fans spinning but monitor gets no signal and cant turn off motherboard


If your fans power up but you see no image, then your computer has failed its startup test.
Now you have to find out what the problem is.
Start by opening the case and disconnecting everything but the keyboard, CPU, memory, and video. Now try to start it. If you still have no signal, it might be your video card if the monitor shows a message telling you there is no signal. Memory could also be a problem.
If you get a message telling you there is no boot device, then turn the computer off (push in the switch for about 7 seconds) and connect the hard drive. Now try to boot. If it works, then suspect the CD drive.
If after doing all this you still get no signal no matter what you do, and if the video is part of the motherboard, you're probably looking at a new motherboard.

Can not get computer to boot up. No Post, no signal to monitor. This a Dell 4700


Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty because a computer has to have an end to the circuit any fulty leads will lead to no boot up
good luck

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 wont boot with hard drive installed, hard drive beeps and computer shuts down. when I unplug the hard drive the computer boots with DVD drive. Hard drive is good, but used a 2nd one...


sound like you either have a dead SATA socket on the board, use another one, or at worst try a PATA hard drive, second thought is possibly go into the bios and make sure you have no previous hardware raid arrays left behind, sounds odd.. but i have seen it cause similar problems before.

I have no signal to my monitor. The asus motherboard is now unavailable. It means changing motherboard, processor and memory. is it worth it? Can I salvage my hard drive if I buy a new tower system...


If you have no signal to your monitor, ther are generally three parts that can cause this: the monitor, the DVI/VGA cable (from PC to monitor) or the graphics card. If I were you I'd try to replace those first, then the motherboard. I'm sure there still are socket 939 motherboards out there, so you will not have to replace memory or processor. Just let someone at a local computer store take it apart, install the hardware on a new motherboard, put the harddisk in the system and reinstall Windows.
(the latter because drivers for the old motherboard may conflict with the new ones. If you don't have any problems with that, don't)

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

System wont boot up


Have you done any setup to the new hard drive? Any new hard drive will come with no data on it. This means you will have to reinstall windows onto the new hard drive, or copy windows from your old hard drive(if it still boots up) using the CD that came with the hard drive. If your hard drive didn't come with the software, post which hard drive you have, and I can give you the link to download it.
Try and find the Windows CD's that came with your computer, and use them to reinstall it. If this was a name brand computer (like dell, or HP), then it will have come with some CD's (usually). Sometimes the restore is built into the old hard drive :-)
If this was a clone computer, you should have a legal copy of windows that was given to you.
