Question about Abit KD7 Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard doesnt post if you change any of the settings

I got an old abit KD7 from a friend, it boots up fine if default settings are loaded but if I change anyone of the the settings it will not post. I am trying to change the boot order so I can reformat the Hard drive. Their are no beeps or anything and the latest bios is loaded on it.

Sounds to me like you have a bad CMOS battery. That battery provides enough juice to keep the hardware clock and settings active. The battery should be a size 2032 and you can find a energizer brand at any store almost. Shouldn't cost more than a couple of dollars. Let me know if that does the trick.

    Are you trying to over-clock or what are you trying to change?

How to acsess the boot device menu at post on abit il8 motherboard

.Abit did not add the BIOS post to the manual.

Watch the BIOS post, most all motherboards have the hot-key menu at BIOS post.

If for some reason the hot-key is not reported on BIOS post, then you hit the DELETE key and enter the BIOS, Advanced BIOS Features Setup Menu and set what hardware you want to boot first, under Hard Disk Boot Priority, set First Boot Device

My computer is dawn

Check your ram sticks one or both could be bad that could be the reason for system beeps and not booting ( open system remove one stick and restart system. If system still beeps shut down replace ram stick and remove other stick and reboot) . I hope this solution goes well for you.

When i boot up the computer it starts beeping immediately, otherwise boots just fine

The beeps are part of the boot sequence, more normally called the post report. The beeps length and number usually indicate a problem.

Check with the abit website, you need the post sequence for your motherboard.

Usually, with a post report, you get a single beep which means everything is tickety boo.

I have an abit kd7 raid mother board and just installed 3 1g sticks of pc3200 400mhz and the bios only reads up to 266 any help

Is the board rated for the faster speed? Just putting in faster chips will not work unless the motherboard supports that speed.

IDE Primary Master/Slave NONE

Hook the two together on the one working IDE connector. Put your hard drive as the first device on the ribbon cable and make it the master using the jumper at the back. Hook the DVD to the second and set it's jumper to slave. Install your OS then try to figure what's up.
