Question about AOpen s760GXm-US Motherboard

Computer won't power up

Yesterday I got a new computer case so I transfered all the components into the new one, plugged everything the same way and when I powered the pc a black screen came on and said I think HLNDR not found. I manage to reboot and have the windows screen, the keyboard and mouse worked and about 5 min. later nothing worked, everything stopped. So I turnes off the pc and powered it back up and now nothing comes on the screen and it's like the pc is dead, the fans work but that's about it. If you have the wiring diagram for an AOpen S760GXm-US it would be very appreciated. If you have any clue of what's wrong please tell me!!! Thank you very much

Re: computer won't power up

The wiring isnt the problem i dont think, as the system wouldnt have started in the first place, the message would have read NTLDR not found, this means that the processor cannot find the system files to load windows and that there is either a hard drive fault or a system fault. If you can get into the bios you need to change the first boot device to cdrom and start the system up using your XP disc and do a system repair.

It looks like there is a short somewhere inside the laptop. Could be the mobo, or just about anything else connected to the power supply.
Try disconnecting the power connector on the mobo, then try plugging in the power plug and see if the light still goes out. If it does not go out, then the problem is the mobo. If not, then somewhere else. Try disconnecting the power from one component at a time to eliminate the various components. Also look for wires that are shorted together or connectors that are inserted improperly.

Trying to install ATI Radeon HD 4670 HIS graphics card in Dell Dimension 4600. When the card is installed, I get no display whatsoever from the card or the on-board VGA. The fan on the vide card spins, I...

A) Card Not Installed
Put the Installation CD Disk that came with the ATI Radeon HD4670, in your optical drive tray.
Load the contents. It also contains the Drivers.

Shut your computer down normally. Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

[ Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
De-Static your body Before working on your computer.

Computer on a table, unplugged from power, and computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame.
This will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again. ]

Insert the Radeon HD4670 in the graphics expansion slot.
Close the case.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card's port.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds.
Let go.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

NOW plug into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Would appreciate if you would post back in a Comment, as to your findings.

If you are getting no post code and it wont boot, that means that one of your core components has something wrong with it ( main components are: motherboard, ram, CPU and fan, or power supply. ). This could be something as simple as a loose connection or a connection that was not plugged in (like the motherboard 20 or 24 wire connector, the CPU 4 wire power connect, etc). This could also mean that one of those main components is not supported by the rest of the system, or one of your main components has gone bad. Usually if its a component gone bad or not supported it would make a series of beeps instead of the one beep post code. Go through all your connections and make sure they are all in place, and on the right place. Make sure thats nothing is improperly grounded. Make sure that your ram is all the way in.
If your PC is still booting like normal even though it does not have a bios code beep, then this can be problems with your case speaker connection or the speaker it self. Sometimes disconnection the components that are not main components and and trying to boot like so might give you a better Idea as to what might be happening. If you have recently added a new component this could be that the power supply cant handle to power up everything (not enough power) so it wont sent the 'power ok' signal to the motherboard and the motherboard in this case will not boot.
Good luck. I hope this helps in some way!!

I had a friend transfer my computer components eg. motherboard, HDD, Ram etc, from a ugly computer case to a nice looking one, she got as far as screwing in the motherboard and hooking the HDD...

To solve your puzzle, you need to find the manual for your motherboard. If you don't have it still, almost all of them are available online at the manufacturer's support website. The manual always has the pin out diagram for the motherboard, and from there its just a matter of plugging the small connections together. Remember that connections for LED lights have polarity, meaning that they need hooked up one particular direction for the light to work, but any switch connection doesnt matter.

Hope this helps

Won't power up!

That would be best, and also, check to make sure that the video card you bought is compatible with the motherboard you are installing it on. Then check to make sure all of the power cords are securely plugged in into their right areas and then try it.

Not woking my external hard disk,but in other pc working

body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(../wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bottom; } Hello

Okay , so there are some steps to figure out what is wrong with your external.

Firstly , if your computer makes a sound when you plug in your external , go to Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management , and see if your external drive is listed here with your local drives. If it is listed , right click on the drive and change the drive letter to make it appear in "my computer".

If your drive does not make a connection sound when connecting to your computer and also does not show up , please follow the next step.

Remove the hard drive from the casing if possible and install it in your computer case or another external case.If the drive works , the problem is with the casing and you can ignore the drive.

Now , if the problem is with the casing , there are still 3 possibilities.

  1. The USB cable between the drive and the computer may be damaged.
  2. The circuit board which connects your drive to the interface of the external may be blown.
  3. The power supply (if applicable) may have a blown transformer.
The latter is the easiest to diagnose , does your external light up at all when you plug in the power? If not , then this is probably your problem. On the bottom of the adapter is a label which you will be able to use to have a new adapter made at your local electronics shop and this will cost about $30 max. They will also be able to test the adapter with a clamp meter to see if this is really the problem and this should be free.

The second component you want to test is the USB cable. If you have a printer , swop out the cables and see if your printer functions normally. Most externals use the same connector so you should be able to test it in this manner. If the cable works go on to the last step. If the cable is defective , replace it with a new one which you can find for about $10 at most electronics and chain stores.

The last component to test is the circuit board. This is a bit of a grey zone as you probably won't be able to spot the blown component unless it failed really badly. With the casing already opened , locate the external's circuit board and check to see if you have any blackened components or fluids leaking from some components. If all the other components of the external worked perfectly , then this is the faulty part. It is not really economical to replace the circuit as most of the time it is out of production by the time you need to replace it and it still costs a lot even if it is available so if your drive is working perfectly when connected via sata or IDE on your computer , the best is to buy a new casing and place your old drive in the new casing.

A casing costs about $50 and you could get it at most tech shops and big chain stores like Best Buy.

I hope this solves your problem and please reply if you need more help.

Kind Regards

Components aren't powering up

Sounds like the board is not receiving power. Check that the power connectors from the psu to the motherboard are securely in place, or else try another psu

Power for a split second

dear migregorio

I think that your problem is either to do with the power supply, not putting out the same amount of power as your previous PSU, so therefore i reckon to start checking your power supply ratings and usage ratings on both PSUs and then evaluate whether the new one is the right one for your machine, it could be beneficial to try using your previous power supply in the case that you have transferred the components into. If this still has the same effect as what you are getting then i would guess that you have either a short circuit from the motherboard to the chassis, or your PSU is not grounded, and therefore an open or incomplete circuit is formed. This will explain why you only receive power for a split second.

I hope that this information helps you for now, and if not, please mail me back here and i will endeavour to respond to you ASAP.
