Check the installed hardware if it is connected properly ex: Video Card, Sound Card, Memory Card. Check also your keyboard and floppy drive if it is properly connected. Beep codes means something is not inserted/connected properly or something is already busted that must be replaced. In your case, check all the connections in your motherboard first.

Check if the harddisk is registered in the standard cmos utility and advanced cmos utility, if not register it
secondly, check if the hard disk's partition is ok and check if the os is not corrupt, if corrupt install a new one

Try leaving it off but with power to it (should see a small green LED on Mobo) for about 30 minutes or more.

After this time try starting it with RAM installed of course!

If this doesn't work your Motherboard is dead.

Error code 10 on my intel mobo when I check the multimedia audio controller..

Error Code 10 problems are caused by incompatibility, corrupted or outdated device drivers.
Make sure that you have the latest & correct drivers installed.

Since you have not mention what model is your MOBO & what OS is on your system?
Your best options is to search & download the drivers for your Intel MOBO at the

Hope it helps.

Building desktop: no beeps, no video The mobo LED are on, fan is running but getting no signal to monitor. I've tested the video card in another pc and confirmed working. The only time the mobo beeps...

If the cpu was bad- nothing would turn on--be sure the cable is good-- also be sure the VGA is enabled in the bios- since you cant see the video you have to reset the cmos setting--unplug the unit and remove the cmos battery-reinstall after one minute and check for video

Intel D815EEA2 mobo won't boot - no clue to why not.

I know, this is a very frustrating situation...
Unfortunately, the only reasonable way to find out what's wrong is to swap components with a reference system, until you found the defective part. I hope you have another P3 system available to swap parts.

I would do it this way:
  • First check that the power button is connected correctly.
  • Swap the memory from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If ok, put it back into the faulty system and connect the power supply from the reference system (or some other known good one) to the faulty system.
  • If this doensn't help, swap the CPU from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If the CPU is ok, the motherboard seems to be defective.

Installed Intel P4 630 CPU on ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1 mobo. Cannot do POST. The mobo runs fine with Intel Celeron 326 fine.

Hello Mafatbhai, What beeps are you getting at POST?
Here is a list of BIOS beep codes.
Well the mobo should not have any problems with the new CPU. Please ensure though that you have removed the CMOS battery to reset it. I have included a link to ECS for your specific board. Download and install all of the available updates starting with the drivers and then the BIOS updates.

EP-8d5a3+ Wont startup - LED code 02 - Cant find manual to download

Chances are your cmos is corrupted, you can try this..

1.) Find the Jcmos or Jp1 or JBAT jumper located on the board. Its a 3 pin jumper currently set to 1 and 2,,, set it to 2 and 4 wait a few then set it back to 1 and 2.

If you cant find the jumper or that fails then

  1. Locate the battery on the main board
  2. unplug the system then remove the battery
  3. press and hold the power button for 3 seconds
  4. release
  5. replace the battery
  6. pulg in the system and turn it on, it should boot
  7. load the optimised defaults by entering setup , follow the on screen instructions to do this
  8. thats it your done.
If that fails then the expoxys site will be up shortly.

i hope it works good luck

845 and 845 P/Pe/G/GL/GE/ and all the rest

problem is, no one really makes 478 motherboards anymore.. so it will be difficult finding one with close enough specs to use same OS, when trying this there is no This will work or will not work" basically you are going to have to try your luck with one and if it works, it works.. if not.. tough luck.. you want to stick with same chipset, same socket and same ram type.. usually if i get those the same i have been able to start windows on the new board OK.. but like i said you will have to try it and see theres no guarentees with this kind if thing microsoft dont recommend it
