Question about Foxconn 975X7AB-8EKRS2H Motherboard

PC not booting up

I have a Intel Quad Core 2.4 GHz processor on this board, with a Radeon HD2900XT Graphics Card and 1GB 800MHz Kingsmax Ram. When I power the machine up everything seems to be booting up, and all fans running, but no display on screen. The Power Supply used is 500W. I have tried to connect up the 8 pin ATX 12V Power connector to the CPU, with a 4 pin power plug as indicated in manual, but then the PC does not start up at all. Only LED's on for a split second and then Auto Off.

What could be the problem? I have already changed the graphics card with at Nvidia 8500GT, but still the same effect. I have 2 off exactly the same PC's build up, and both giving the same problem.

Yes this motherboard accepts the quad core i use it, but the power supply is underrated for the quad core you will need somethng a bit more meatier I would suggest at least 700-800

Not 100% sure this MB takes the quad core processor.. Have you tried it with another skt775 one?

I have dell gx 260 with 2.4 ghz nd 1gb ddr ram with nvidia geforce fx 5200 can u name any graphics card which will be gud enough than geforce 5200...nd agp plz..

You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:

1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology

3) Best: HIS HD4670

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2

If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

More Ram for graphics

You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
