Question about FIC P4M-915PD1 Motherboard

1 Answer

P4M-915G/PD1 no screen, no BIOS, only power.

Hello, I´m trying to repair P4M-915G/PD1. I could enter the BIOS once when I had no operating system anymore (virusses?).I didn´t change any settings in BIOS setup though. Then I rebooted and since then I have nothing on screen anymore. Fans are turning, that´s all. I did a CMOS reset by switching the jumper and removing the battery. No difference. The system won´t load anything at all. Nothing on screen. I checked the screen which is ok. I changed the video card. Nothing.

    I changed the video card in a pci video card and suddenly I have screen. But still no operating system. I have an image though. I´m reinstalling the image now. It is strange that the problem is the video card. Because I had video on that card before I started fixing the problem. How is that possible?
    Thanks for replying :)

    Do I have to change the videocard then. Or is the problem on the motherboard? The image I got didn´t give a working operating system, so I´ll install a proper one later on.
    Thanks Orbixx
    I have more questions. Are you often there?

    The motherboard boots on an old PCI-card but doesn´t boot with the Powercolor Radeon X300SE (R37L-SC3B) 128MB. Is a PCI-E card. The strange thing is that my friend claims that it ever worked. You have any suggestion what I best do? I don´t have an other motherboard with PCI-E to test the card.

    I reinstalled Windows XP Pro on the configuration with an old PCI graphic card (Diamond Stealth Video 2500). During installation after XP reboots computer hangs. Turning it of on again several times setup hangs. Finally XP is installed but now it hangs when XP has finished starting up. Has the old graphic card something to do with it? Computer also didn´t start up with the PCI-E graphic card. Then it won´t even load Windows. What is the problem here?

  • damselfly Sep 13, 2007

    I don´t find disabling the AGP or PCI-E feature on the motherboard eather. I just cahnged the graphic card again, loaded optimised system in bios and no screen at startup. Later on I had a screen. Strange. Changed the card again, system starts up but hangs. No ctrl+alt+del. Help!

    Is there a way to check the motherboard? How do I know it is defect and how am I shure it is not a BIOS problem?
    Thanks.

Do you hear any beeps at all? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? If not, plug a 2-pin system speakers onto the motherboard where it says "speaker" and listen for some beeps. You may have a fried CPU or dodgy RAM on your hands. Possibly even a faulty AGP/PCI-E slot, to name a few.

    If you've installed a PCI video card and your previous video card was a different type (AGP or PCI-E) it may have been down to the AGP or PCI-E interface. A PCI video card can utilise any PCI slot, so if the AGP or PCI-E slot (or any other PCI slot for that matter) is faulty - a PCI video card generally will solve the problem and give you a video output.

    Let me know how you get on with the operating system reinstallation. :)

    It's difficult to say, but it's likely if you've tried 2 graphics cards and they haven't worked, it's an interface problem on the motherboard.

    In any case, it's always trial and error to find a solution - you'll need to try the graphics cards out on another compatible motherboard to see if they've fried or not. If you can do this and find they're ok - then it's an interface problem on your motherboard.

    Or quite possible a simple setting in the motherboard BIOS disabling the AGP or PCI-E feature on the motherboard, that's definitly worth checking for, perhaps before you go ahead and do anything else I just mentioned.

    And I'm around reasonably often.

    You're welcome.

    It'll be your motherboard or memory at fault.

Still haven´t got bios for P4M-915PD1


Hi, yeah I noticed that it took you too a ftp site. There are no new updates or old bios files for the FIC P4M-915PD1 throught FIC. They do not list bios files on their web site anymore. There is a link but it goes no where. Tried different countrys. Nothing.
http://www.fic.com.tw/support/motherboard/motherboard.aspx?model_id=159

So I went after you're chipset, which is an Intel. At this link.
http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/915P/tools.htm#ddbios

Intel's link will not load the bios link. You're board is still an Intel & should be compatible with any Intel board with the 915 series chipset but it is not. After running a comparison with other boards as shown below. You're board was made for FIC. As a member of Driverguid I found nothing & also check every user who suggested a site for you as well. Nothing! Tried softpedia, nothing.

Not enough to support you're board.
Sorry, but it may be a good idea to find a board that will handel you're parts.

Problems after Power Management changes


Experience a similar problem with a FIC MB. I cleared CMOS then removed MB battery for 1 hour. Restarted the unit with just the video card and hard drive installed. After unit rebooted I added sound card, network card, etc.

FIC P4M 915G/PD1 system fails to Power Up


You should always try a new power supply if possible. After all, it is one of the most likely components to fail - it's got moving parts (one or more fans), just like your hard drive (spinning platters), one of the other most likely parts to die.

That said, in this instance it probably is the mobo. FIC made great motherboards, but they got out of the business so you won't find the same one anywhere. If you have to replace it, you may be able to get out of a Windows reinstall by getting a motherboard with the same chipset, which looks like a 915/G, though any 915 based board might do. You may still need to do a repair install, but in many cases the same chipset allows you to boot and then just load all the new different drivers for the new board.

No DVD-ROM boot


If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured. Did you hear 2 beeps(not together) Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings' and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'. Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is. Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.
