Also make sure the cables are connected properly - for instance the power on/front USB/reset button etc etc If they are not it effectively 'shorts' the board and it will not power up. Dont worry it is not a permanent issue - just make sure any connectors are attached the right way around.

Re: Doesnt boot???????

The best way to troubleshoot this is to start over.
Strip the board bare and add components one at a time.
Do the Power supply and CPU fans spin?
The fact that two boards have done this suggests that some component is faulty or installed improperly. It's not impossible to get two bad boards, but it seems unlikely.

Re: Doesnt boot???????

Most probably the mother board have a prob with power good signal circuitry. Usually Asus , AsRock and Mercury boards have this problem. This is a minor problem and could be corrected by any motherboard repair personnals.
Another reason could be static charge (heard from another forum)
plug off the computer then press the power switch for 1min after that plug in and start the computer.

AsRock Support > AlivenF6G-DVI Motherboard > Main Support page,

In the list on the left hand side, click on CPU Support List

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+ CPU, (Processor), is part number ADA5800IAA5DO.
Operates Up To a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 3.0GigaHertz, has two L2 cache's of 512MegaByte, and uses the Socket AM2 CPU socket.

In the CPU Support :List it is not shown.
This is ONLY because the Athlon 64 X2 5800+, came out way after the CPU Support List was compiled. NOT because it isn't supported.

No, I have to amend that,

It's because AMD's lack of information, apparently, that AsRock didn't list it.

I don't see the voltage range listed anywhere. (To include AMD)

At any rate let's go with deductive reasoning, and see if this CPU is supported.

1) You can compare the Athlon 64 X2 5800+, to the other CPU's in the CPU Support List; that are comparable to it, and above it.

Don't even have to go too far.
Look at the ADA6000IAA6CZ, and the ADX6000IAA6CZ CPU's.

The two Athlon 64 X2 6000+ versions.
(Doesn't state that, just the above part numbers)

However I DO notice that the ADX requires BIOS version P2.00, and the ADA only requires BIOS version P1.60
(Since BIOS)

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 and Nvidia nForce 430, Or Nvidia GeForce 6150SE and Nvidia nForce 430

Compatible? Yes.
May need the P2.00 BIOS update, if not already installed.

My computer works normaly with an single core athlon 3200+ but when I use an Athlon 4400+ or 4000+ dual core, it just wont boot. The fans are running and lights are on but there is no signal on the monitor...

take a look at the motherboard manufacturers website and see if your motherboard will accept a 4400. You may need to update the bios on your board to accept the faster processor. You need to be careful if you flash the bios. do it wrong and you can write the board off.

Good luck

There is no AMD Athlon that runs natively at 2.5 GHz. They were badged on comparative rating: a 2500+ will run at 1833 MHz or 1867 MHz, depending on the version.

Videocard not working

Try removing the new card, booting into BIOS, change your video setting the slot of your card: I believe your card is PCI-E, save changes and exit. When it starts to reboot, turn the computer off, install the new card and then try rebooting again. You may also have to boot into Safe Mode\Uninstall the original video driver or disable that video component and then try rebooting your system.

EliteGroup K7S5A (does not say pro on the board)

According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)

You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).

No video signal from onboard, agp, or pci cards

Prophitinc, I'll try to help. First off a real basic question, the specs I have say this board has a built in video adaptor. Did you make sure that the BIOS was configured use the plug in card? Some BIOS's can do this on their own but I would check anyway. -The first thing I would do is to check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove any add in cards, use the built-in video (make sure you enable it via the BIOS), unplug mice, remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you have on try a basic PS2 style keyboard you know works. Restart, does anything change? If this doesn't result in some changes then some more information is necessary. In light of your situation I?ll be checking back for another couple of hours: -Are all of these parts from the old machine, IE do we know they all work? -Any beeping or noise coming from the machine during booting except fans? -You say it behaves as if it were booting; what about hard drive activity? How long is it running? -What exactly were the conditions in which the last board was damaged? Was it plugged in and powered up?
