Question about Foxconn 945GZ7MC-RS2H Motherboard

2 Answers

Foxconn 946GZ7MA-8KRS2H Hi, I've just built a new comp with the above mobo, pentium d3.0, 2g ram, sata, using onboard gfx and sound. When I hit the power button, the computer lights up for maybe 2 seconds then shuts back down. After another 2-3 seconds the computer starts and boots all the way to windows. However, when windows starts the internal clock has been reset to Jan 01 2006 and the time is set to 00:00. I am writing this post using the same computer, and I can play games and run all the installed programs without fault. I have also tried installing a Nvidia 8500gt pci-e gfx card but when i restart the computer with it in neither the onboard gfx nor the pci-e card show anything through the monitor. This sounds to me like the motherboard resetting itself everytime it is powered down (or when the power cord is removed). I have swapped the bios battery for one i know is working but this has not helped. I would really appreciate any advice you could give as I've tried everything I can think of and nothing has worked yet. Thanks, Nick Lyons London, UK.

Thanks for the above, though it was not the solution it helped me to understand what was wrong.

For some reason, the BIOS that the board shipped with was causing all of the above problems.  I stripped and re-built the PC a few times with the same results, until I eventually found a BIOS update from the Foxconn site.  I installed it and *most* of the problems went away.  It even let me install my Nvidia 8500gt pci-e card which worked straight away.  It seems strange that the original bios version would not support my pci-e card...this is not something I've come across before.

The only residual problem I have is that when I shut down the computer, it reboots itself.  This happens every time and so I am going to try and fiddle with the power options to try and stop it happening.  Again, this seems to be something the BIOS still does of its own accord.

Thanks again,

Get one new battery and short your bios jumper by removing the jumper (cmos clear jumper)and placing the jumper in 2 and 3 pins ones you do this you will see that your cpu fan runs for 2 sec and it stops it means the BIOS is cleared wait for 15 sec and replace the jumper to its original place on 1 and 2 pins then start your computer, it will give the message load the optimized default hit the enter key to enter the BIOS select load the default setting and re enter the time and start the computer kindly tell me if it works ([email protected])

Is my Mobo compatible with this GFX card???

Hello here is your mainboards homepage:

Download the manual.

You will need adobe reader to read the content.

You might have to disable the onboard graphic in the bios when you install the graphic card.
Disable the driver for the onboard graphic or uninstall it before you install the new driver because the driver does not fit the new graphic card.
It will probably also help to upgrade the bios to the latest version
just make sure it`s the right mainboard.
Flashing the bios with the wrong one will destroy the mainboard !!!!!
If you are in doubt upgrading the bios let a expert do this for you.

You can download the latest driver here at nvidia:

Just remember to select the right graphic card and your windows system.

Good luck

Nvidia gfx card problem

It seems that the problem lays on your Ram,not the graphic card.And since the driver of graphics card is capturing some of your ram memory you are experiencing this error.

Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 Motherboard will not post with pentium d cpu ,i have even updated with the lates bios flash,

Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56 No Version 4BFF1P40
Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
945G7MA-8EKRS2 945G7MA-8EKRS2H
Update at your own risk..

Hi there its a foxconn g41mxe board... The power is connected, everything installed... But seems to put out no vga signal on the vga port onboard the mobo. Please advise tnx

Test the PSU if the units fan is not working the power supply unit is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket
hope this helps

New processor doesnt seem to be compatible with my Mobo?

You have to go to the foxconn website and check the specs for the board that you have. It will list the processors that are compatible. You have to get the right socket config too

Computer freezes after about 10 mins !

It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.

Video card troubles

Hi, with my own Foxconn mobo [661FX7MI] I had to run the installation disk that came with the motherboard and reinstall the AGP driver. Then run the AGP card driver [ATI]  disk.
