Question about EliteGroup (ECS 915PL-A2) Motherboard

1 Answer

No post, no video

Everything starts up fine, but can't seem to get any post beeps or video. only one led on the front panel of the ECS 915PL-A2 is lit, and that light is red. I think its for the hdd(it is SATA connected), also which plug would I use for spk1, the instruction manual is very vague about this.

Get some cheap PCI card plug it in. get to the bios make sure integrated video is selected. Speaker connector is two pins in various motherboard the pins should be located close to the reset and power pins.

Cannot find the SATA hard drives for my ecs 915PL-A2 mother board. All connections have been checked

Did it just stop? Or is the a new system?
Did you check your BIOS settings?
ECS is not known for excellent quality - if you have a bad board hopefully it is still under warranty.

Shutdown at Windows Log-in or Desktop

Hi kpspero, I gather you can get into you're bios? Once there go to hardware monitor (page 26 in you're manual, which should allow you to watch the motherboard temp & CPU temp. You're CPU may be overheating. (Keep the case closed when checking this). Normal operation. Did you add thermal grease between the CPU & heatsink? Go to page 4 & 5 of you're manual. Check that you have connected number 21, Auxiliary 4-pin power connector.
Two more thoughts. If everything is connected correctly & you're system is not over heating, try updating the bios. Click on this link which will take you to ECS's web site for you're board.
After flashing the bios, re-check you're bios settings. There are many updates for the 915PL-A2 MB & for windows. Did you hear any beeps from the PC during boot up? Did you connect the motherboard speaker? If you do not have a motherboard speaker you can get one from this site: Lastly, since you can get to you're desktop, from time to time. Is this a fresh install of windows XP? Have you installed windows more than once? If you said yes to either. Download the hard drives manufactures bootable floppy disk setup software/tools/utilities & use that floppy to format the hard drive & setup the drive. Do not use windows to perform the format. Install ECS's CD software/drivers after windows has been installed.
If you're system continues to has this shut down problem, post back & I'll go from there.

Good Luck!

915PL-A2: no post, no beep, no keyboard lights

You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.

Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
Good luck!

Cpu fan starts but no other indications

If there a built-in videocard on your motherboard you must disabled it from the CMOS setup before you can use to the separate video card.

Please give me any update
