Re: Its dead. How do I get another one

I couldn't find a contact there either, nor could I find one for sale in about 40 sites. Being (older) technology, you could try another board with similar features.


for other boards that use your processor and ram.

PC with ECS P4VMM2 V5.0A motherboard won't power up after working for years. Power supply fan doesn't come on, case fan doesn't come on, PC dead. Tried replacing power supply, same result. Power supply...

The mother board and the fan also need replacement. If you have recently added any other hard ware to the machine, remove it and try booting again.

Screen goes dead after few seconds. Green light stays on. If I disconnect from pc it shows "signal lost"

You need to try another screen if it is possible. Sounds like the screen you are using is about ready to die. I had one that would do something similar to that. The backlighting on the monitor went bad. Would come on for a few seconds and then go dark. You could just about make out the pictures but could not read the words at all. Had to get a replacement.

Trying another screen first will tell you if it is really the screen or video card.

I can listen to mp3 files,they won't run

Try checking your sound settings. It's not a codec problem, since VLC doesn't need codecs. If it really doesn't play, make sure the mp3 file is working, and not corrupt.

PC Chips M848A dead, no screen output or blips

I had the same problem. I bought the M848A from Newegg in an attempt to save my trusty Athlon 2600+ CPU and a fancy Raedon 512mb AGP card which I salvaged out of my old broken down system. I thought it would be a good time to update the RAM so I bought 2 gigs of OCZ 3200 DDR400 to go with.

(1) First the damn thing wouldn't boot past the post screen. It would simply cycle thru post over and over. Fixed: The microsoft XPpro operating system was corrupt. The new board hated the old configs from the previous system. After trying (and failing) a os repair, I ended up simply doing a clean intall with great results. Board was stable worked great for a week. Only had one glitch...

(2) The board would only recognize and post ONE of the 2 gigs of ram I bought. I raided all the CMOS settings, and downloaded all the user manuals I could get a hold of and found no answers to this curious problem. On a whim, I opened the case and switched their locations back and forth which led me to...

(3) Lights on, no one home. All the lights came on... power, HDD, cd drives... all the fans worked: case, CPU, graphics card... but the screen would remain blank/unpowered and no post menu would come up. Seemed like it wanted to work, but simply stopped short of booting up. THIS WAS YOUR PROBLEM?!?? On a hunch, (more an angry impulse) I reached over and popped an old Mushkin Technologies (PC 3200 400DDR) 512mb out of my old dead mobo and slammed it solo in the primary memory slot. Bingo. Fired right up.

The board appears to be testy with its RAM... If it fails its initial memory test, it will not post. The screen will not come on. I'm not 100% certain this is the final solution to the problem... I'm still playing with it. My questions now are.... do I have dead RAM? Chip compatibility issues? Perhaps the PC Chips support techs on their website have some practical advice on this issue. I'll keep you posted if you like.

NB You are more likely to have sucess if your MoBo is of a similar type (same manufacturer, chipset etc)

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

Non response from tower

If you're hoping for a bargain out of it, it depends how much your time is worth. Given that the PSU was dead, and other components are showing problems, one or more of them were probably affected. Could be the fan is spinning slow due to damage, and the motherboard is refusing to fully init because of the fan... but I doubt it. The CPU may or may not be okay, but the value is likely to be low. The RAM is probably okay, but again, value is likely to be low. Your best bet would be if you had a second similar computer, to try interchanging parts and see which are damaged/working. In general, though, the system probably is of very low value when working. It looks like it may be model T3624; if so, a model recently went on eBay for $140 (including shipping), in working condition and with 512mb RAM. (item 190155139483) Personally, I would try to sell it as-is for $75, with the dead PSU, or the amount you paid for it (if applicable). Depending what the PSU cost you, you could also add that to the price and ask for that, with the working PSU. At the end of the day, the question becomes, how much would it cost to buy this computer (or a similar model) in known working condition? Is the value of your time, or replacement parts, going to exceed that?

I think that you may have broken the ATX connector on the PSU. take a voltage meter and try ever connector. if that is not the problem, consider a new graphics card or CPU. Hopr that that helps MBERN
