Question about Intel Motherboard

2 Answers

New computer will not power up

I just built a computer for the first time - purchasing all the components in a package, so everything should be compatible.  All connections have been double and triple checked.  When I turn on the power, the system fan and the CPU cooling fan come on, but nothing happens beyond that.  I have a DVD drive, but it will not open as if it is not getting any power.  It appears that only minimal power is getting in.


Any ideas what I can check?

    Sandrew - All the things you mentioned have been checked off the list of thing to try.  They are all OK.  It still will not post.  There must be a problem with the motherboard...

It could be a number of things, but one thing sometimes gets missed out, the fan has come on so the fan is connected, but some processors are no longer powered by the ZIF socket and are powered by a seperate 4 pin plug from the PSU to the motherboard, so check that first.


Check the memory for compatability with your board, remove one if you have 2 fitted and try again, especially if theres no beeps indicating that the memory has not been identified; if theres no bios and just a flashing cursor, then the bios chip may have been damaged or stressed on build when fitting the parts caused by overflexing the motherboard or faulty from supply.


Clear the cmos terminals (refer to the manual) just incase after you have refitted the memory

2. Try updating BIOS of your motherboard from the following link :

3. Plug only Optical Driver / Hard disk at a time and check.

4. Contact your vendor and get the motherboard replaced.

SOURCE: Followup on power connectors

Hi chweb1230, to answer you're question. Yes, I would suggest getting a power supply that would comply with the ATX main 24-pin power connector. The term backwards compatible references to boards that require less voltage, Ex; (A 20-pin main power board). If you intend to run serial ATA SATA drives & a PCI-E graphic card. The newer power supply will handle future upgrades. Suggest a 500 to 550W PSU should handle just about anything you add to the board.
chweb1230, when you make a post & are making reference from another post. Please copy & past that link into this post. If you are using a new user ID I can not look back & find what you are refering too.

SOURCE: get no power with intel d875pbz in rosewill tu155 case

You don't have the power switch connected where it belongs. There's one set of pins where all the front panel connections go. This information is from the manual for this board, available from Intel here.

Hope it helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Computer doesn't work with monitors, yet turns on properly (Not a monitor problem)

The usual problem with a completely blank screen, even with known working monitors is the graphics card. Relatively easy to put right with a new graphics card unless the graphics is built into the motherboard. This can be checked by looking on the back of the computer. Is the video outlet grouped with the keyboard, mouse etc sockets or separate from these. If it is with these the graphics card is built into the motherboard and would be uneconomic to do anything with unless the board takes a separate card. If you want to try a separate or different graphics card, make sure you get the correct interface, PCI, AGP, PCIe etc etc

Istalling new computer components, first boot up and nothing will display.

If the board has built in graphics, connect the monitor to that temporarily. In the BIOS you can select the preferred order of the GPU.
Something like PCI - PCIe - IGFX should be your choice.
You may have a bad video card, or a bad mobo. Swap a different card in first to make sure. Also if this is a gaming machine with a high power card you may not have a powerful enough PSU to start the system. The PSU is actually the most important component, and many times the most often one people cheap out on.

Hope this helps!

As long as you are doing a complete swap from the current system to the new (empty case) you will not loose anything, just be very careful when transferring the motherboard and expansion cards. Use a static guard wrist band if you can get one to avoid shorting your components.

I turned on my home theater sc-ht670, and the display shows "hello", "init ", "please" and finally "wait" and nothing happens and be left with the word...

Basic steps to check if the problem lies with the home theatre system or not.

1. First thought might be to conclude that your poor audio quality is caused by your speakers, before you immediately race out to purchase a new home theater surround sound speaker package, check the basic things first.

2. The problem might not be in the speakers, but in the amplifier or the connections from the amplifier. Checking and ensuring that the speakers are correctly connected on both ends is the first step.

3. After the connections pass examination, the next step is to check if the problem lies with the amplifier or audio speaker. Some of the lower end home theater systems come with low powered amps. Most often they do not supply sufficient power to speakers to produce the quality audio you desire. This may show up particularly if the room is large when the sound doesn't fill up the room.

4. To determine if it is indeed the amplifiers then hook up your speakers to a stereo; this generally will have a more powerful amp. If the speaker quality improves then the problem probably lies in your home theater amplifier.
If you cannot distinguish any difference, then your speakers could possibly be at fault.

5. Poor cable installation and audio speaker cable are another possible cause for consideration. Cheap workmanship can lower audio quality and home theater packages often come equipped with inexpensive poor quality cables.

6. If you experience problems with your theater system, it is always best to assume the problem lies in the connections between components first and then suspect the components themselves.

7. To ensure a great sound experience ensures that everything is properly connected, your amp is of sufficient power, and the cables are of high quality. If a person makes use of these basic easy precautions a significant amount of frustration can be eliminated. If your home theater sound isn't where you need it to be, use those hints as a blueprint as you analyze your system. If it really is time to look for new components, consider those directives as you make your next purchase.

Note : Check to see if the color is bad across all input sources. If so, make sure you have your Televisions' color settings set to your preferences. If everything looks good except, say, your DVD player, and it is connected to your TV via Component Video Connections (which is composed of three cables - Red, Green, and Blue), make sure they are matched up correctly with the Component (Red, Green, and Blue) connections on your TV. This is a common mistake as it is sometimes hard to distinguish the Green and Blue connectors if the lighting in the connection area is dim.

My computer restarts frequently. Some times after

Maybe it is a heating problem. Try putting a new thermal paste on your CPU and cleaning fans. (there is still a possibility that it is a power supply component problem.
So you should consider buying an UPS.)
Also check capacitors, if they are deformed - replace them or buy new MB.
Good luck! :)

Hey Hicomp! Generally retail packaged software is designed to be sold in retail stores and as such comes with a lot of literature, extra paperwork, CD's, and usually tech support for the program you're purchasing. OEM packaged software is the same software just without the retail packaging, extra paperwork, and no tech support usually.

Power board malfunction


There may be four (4) ways the repair could be done:
1. board - an entirely new power board maybe available from the monitor manufacturer or you can Google for OEM provider;
2. board - a refurbished/reworked board may be available, again you have to Google. Both 1 & 2 would require that you search for the actual PCB assembly number;
3. use the power supply board from an identical unit that has defective LCD panel, inverter or other problems/defect other than the PSU; and
4. component level repair - determine which components in the power supply are defective and needs replacement.

All of the above would require time. Time to look for the replacement board, time to determine which component to replace, time to do the actual repair.

Cost - depends on the tech. Of course board assembly would cost more to purchase but should be relatively easy to perform and therefore should not be expensive in terms of service. On the other hand, component level repair often would be cheaper in terms of parts purchases but would cost more in terms of service fees.

Taking into considerations the above factors, it may be more to your advantage to do the repairs yourself (no service fee). Still should you be uncomfortable on a DIY, then the cost of repairs might justify the purchase of a new LCD monitor instead.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
