Question about Soyo Computers & Internet

1 Answer

SY-K7V DRAGON Plus no longer boots.

I have a system based on an SY-K7V DRAGON Plus motherboard (VIA KT266A chipset).

Yesterday, I got some weird program exceptions and decided to reboot the computer to see if that would clear up the problem. I have never gotten back into Windows since.

At first, it would get through the initial checks and prompt me about whether I wanted to go to safe mode or load windows normally. No matter which choice I made, the next thing that would happen is that there would be a flash of a blue screen (it was so short that I could never read what it said) and the the computer would reboot again.

After a couple rounds of that, it now won't POST at all. When I apply power, fans start running, optical drives spin up, there is a little bit of hard drive activity, but nothing comes up on the monitor and eventually, it all quiets down except for the fan. No beeps of any kind.

Any ideas what might be the problem?

    I would have expected to get some beep codes if the memory was not properly seated.

    In any case, I tried pulling all the memory out to see if I would get some beep codes and the behavior was unchanged. Seems like there is something that prevents it from even getting to the memory check. Maybe my CPU is dead?

    OK. It'll take me a while to scavenge an alternate power supply from another machine, but I'll give it a try.
    Thanks for your help.

Try reseating the memory and restarting the PC. If that doesn't help and you have multiple sticks, try removing all but one, then cycle through to see if maybe you have a bad stick somewhere.

    Could be. I'd next try a different power supply, then a CPU (a failing power supply could spin the fans but not deliver enough power to start the system).

I changed some BIOS settings for CPU speed and memory, now it wont boot - how do i reset the BIOS back when I cant get to the BIOS screen? Soyo K7V Dragon motherboard


Hi:) Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in so you have no static problems. Open the computer tower and on the motherboard near the Cmos Battery there is a blue or red jumper that covers 2 of 3 pins move it to the other side of the 3 pins for 30 seconds then put it back that will reset the bios to default.

Soyo k7v dragon plus motherboard continuous


2 beeps = memory problems. Since you get them even after the memory has been replaced then the problem is in the motherboard itself. Check the capacitors for bulging. If you can't find ones or you can't replace them then the motherboard is dead.
