Many machines have standoffs permanently pressed into the case, some have dimples formed into the mounting surface to act as standoffs. The motherboard and attached parts must not touch metal except at mounting holes, even when pushing in connectors.

Hi, I have an Intel DG31PR mobo with nVidia 460GTX Intel Core 2 Duo 3GB RAM DDR2 Was working fine. Changed casing today and 1. no display shown 2. mobo gives 4 beeps and reboots, goes back to...

Points to a mobo problem.
However, it could be a short, caused by an unseen standoff pillar making contact with the board.
I would first of all, remove the board, place it on an A.S surface and connect it to a monitor, with 1 stick of ram, No hard drive and no CD rom attached. Use a makeshift power switch to trigger the power on the Fpanel header, or carefully touch the Power pins with a screwdriver to boot it.

If that fails to work, check the board for burns, blowing capacitors and damage, especially underneath

If it does work, replace each component in turn, examine the case to see you are not placing the board on a standoff pillar that will not be taking a screw

If this is a new install, make sure the board is grounded to the base with the standoff post. If you do not tighten your screws or miss these standoff, your system will short and not power up.

Good Luck

To remove motherboard from laptop e-system ei3102

To remove the motherboard you need to remove power from the back, lay the computer on it's side, wear an anti-ESD wrist strap, remove the left side cover (looking from back of computer). Mark and record all connections (a video helps while you disassemble). Pull all connectors off by grabbing connector NOT wires. Some have locks. Remove all adapter cards (little circuit boards plugged in motherboard). Remove RAM by pushing on locks on each end. Remove the CPU fan and heat sink but PULL UPP CAREFULLY in case CPU stays attached. If cpu is still in socket, carefully lift locking lever and lift cpu straight up. Remove all screws. Board will need to slide forward slightly to get out of case. Take old board to store to make of proper replacement and take cpu also. Both should be in anti-static bags but DO NOT use ziplock bags. Install in reverse BUT cpu should fall into socket WITHOUT pushing, it has one corner of pins different from others. Make sure that you have wrist ******** at all times working inside the tower. Respond for further details if needed.
Good luck!

Emachine locks on windows splash screen

Try flashing the Bios, if this does not work you may have a processor problem or a problem with the operations of the northbridge or southbridge not functioning correctly causing the freeze problem.The only repair for this type of problem is to replace the motherboard. If the computer is over three or four years old this may be the situation. You should check the condition of all the processors before giving up on the board.Try removing the heatsinks and reapplying the thermal paste. Make sure to clean all dust and debris form the processors. Make sure all the heatsinks are making good contact with their processors. Be sure to clean all dust and debris form the inside of the case and under the motherboard. Check all the screws and standoffs, Just or make sure you are not having shorting problems between the motherboard and case. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Installation of mother board

hi im josh in cebu phils. friend try to use this solutions it will help you.
Installing the New Motherboard First, make sure that the new motherboard is the same form factor as the case. Then, make absolutely certain that the power supply is set for the correct voltage to avoid zapping the new board. Look at the back of the case for a small switch that says 115V and 230V, or something similar, as shown in Figure 3.12. This should be set to the voltage available in the country in which it is used; in North America, this voltage is 115.
Figure 3.12: Power supply voltage switch. Next, make sure that no conductive surface comes in contact with any metal parts of the case. While some cases have elevated mounting holes that hold the board away from the case wall (see Figure 3.13), other cases call for standoffs. Standoffs are small spacers that go between the board's and the case's mounting holes (see Figure 3.14).
Figure 3.13: Elevated mounting holes. 0314.jpg
Figure 3.14: Standoff assortment. After screwing in the screws, you need to install the power connectors and then follow the manufacturer's instructions for setup, which we discuss next. After you've done this, reinstall all of the compatible peripheral devices (if any) that were connected to the old motherboard. For more information on installing peripherals, see the rest of this chapter, Chapter 2, and the chapter appropriate for the type of device in question.
Motherboard Setup There are certain things you must do to the motherboard to get everything working together. Some boards have stickers indicating the proper positions of DIP switches and jumpers, but in most cases, the documentation (manual) is essential. If you don't have the manual, you can usually find information on the manufacturer's Web site.

Tip In some cases, the board was manufactured by one company but sold by another under a different trade name. In this case, you might be able to find the actual brand and model number by peeling off a brand/model-number sticker on the board to reveal the actual manufacturer's sticker. Make sure the board is not under warranty when you do this; peeling off the sticker might void an active warranty.
On the CD See the Industry Contacts document on the accompanying CD-ROM for manufacturer contact information.
DIP Switches and Jumpers All boards have DIP switches and/or jumpers (see Chapter 2 for general information on these). Depending on the board, these are used to select such settings as the speed and family of the processor, and there might also jumpers to reset the CMOS, redirect the sound from the rear to front connectors, select the type of memory to install, and others.
good luck.

No boot

Check to make sure you don't have any extra standoffs under the motherboard that may be shorting it out.

P4VMM2 mobo

Check for bulging/oozing capacitors on the board. If there are bulging/oozing caps, they will need to be replaced.

Also try pulling the motherboard out of the chassis entirely. You might have a short with the chassis somewhere - either an extra standoff in the wrong place, a loose screw, etc.

Unfortunately things that start this way tend to go downhill in my experience.

Biostar M4M70-M4 mounting question

Of course it could make a difference. Any contact between an active voltage on a motherboard and the metal of the case will fry the motherboard and possibly the P/S. There are different sizes of standoffs to fit different cases and motherboards. Sometimes if a person doesn't use a sufficient number of standoffs, one corner or another of the motherboard can be inadvertently bent toward the case ground causing a short. Even the raised mounds you speak of need standoffs of some type if the surface of the raised mound encrouches upon a surface of the motherboard that has voltage on it.
