Question about Foxconn 661MX Motherboard

1 Answer

No boot, no video

Just bought the board. Had to break seal on anti-static pack so I assume it's new. It's supposed to be. Installed P4 2.4a CPU. Two sticks Kingston 512 333 ram. Board powers on (CPU fan running) but no post codes and no video. I can feel HD spinning up.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your reply. I have already cleared the CMOS. And the post codes show no error. Nothing. No beeps. It appears that the onboard video isn't working. I have tried a ATI Radon9000 AGP card as well as an Orcid PCI video card, both of which I know are good. Still no video. But I can hear the A: drive squawk and feel the HD spinning up as in a normal boot up. Front panel leds are on
    too. I bought this board at auction as new. And appearently it had never been opened. But I have a real "I got burned feeling".

There is a jumper near the board cmos battery try to clear cmos by changing the jumper to the other position for some seconds (while power is off) so smos is clear.
if the problem still exist hook up the board spkr pins to the pannel at the board edge if a beep is heard upon starting the board then RAM is either not working or not positioned properly.
one more possibility :
CPU could be not working. sometimes currupted power supply could be causing this.

Problem msi motherboard k7n2


Well you have me lost so far..........

Why?

A) No statement/s of what AMD Athon cpu\'s are used.

B) No statement of what you set the FSB to, for each said CPU.

C) No statement of are you using Anti-Static Procedures.

D) No statement that you know how to correctly line the CPU up, with the processor socket.

E) What frequency rate (\'Speed\') of ram memory are you using?
Ram memory typically operates at half of the CPU\'s Front Side Bus.
(FSB)

F) What makes you think those CPU\'s are good?
May have been static shocked before you got them, because previous owner did not know about Anti-Static Precautions.

A Processor (CPU) is the MOST susceptible computer hardware component, to Static shock.

G) How did you clean the processors, and bottom of the Heatsink?
What method are you using to apply fresh, new Thermal Paste?

Three more;

I) What jumper pins did you use for 100MHz, and 133MHz?

J) How do you know for a FACT, that the Power Supply is good?

K) What shape are the Electrolytic Capacitors in?
That motherboard is as old as the hills, and twice as dusty.

1. check your display settings for the best possible screen resolution for your laptop.
2. the new CPU that is installed is defaulted at 1080p resolution and is to strong for the video graphics card that is on the mother board which is possibly 1280X740 . Being a laptop and the video graphics is built into the mother board therefore possibly not compatible with the new processor.
3.
Blue ray video is ultra high resolution such as 1920X1080 HDTV

I'm just going to post some stuff, and you see what you may think may help.

1.I hope you observed the anti-static guidelines, or you have silently toasted your delicate computer components. Static will silently fry them out. You won't see it or feel it.

(Reseated CPU? Static will fry that thing out F-A-S-T! Didn't clean the top of the CPU, and the bottom of the heatsink, and apply new thermal paste? CPU is fried. Takes about 10 minutes or so for an Intel. Takes about 20 to 30 seconds for an AMD!)
2.Floppy drive has no power? It attaches straight to the PSU. Either it is bad, or the PSU. Even if you swapped PSU's, it doesn't mean the one you installed is good.
If the PSU has a weak voltage rail, it won't give enough wattage to the processor.

A.ALL the lights use less than 1 watt.
B.EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C.A harddrive sitting there spinning, because there is no processor to tell it what to do, uses about 2 to 3 Watts. (Read on)
D.When BIOS tries to turn the processor on, it can't. Why? Because processors use anywhere from 55 watts to 125 watts. Depends on the processor. If the PSU has a weak voltage rail, the processor won't turn on.

Gateway gt4016 won't boot. Fan runs but nothing else


Try a different CPU. and also try a completely different set of know good memory. If after this the system still doesn't boot up then then the motherboard they installed in defective and if that the case? Get your money back.

GA-7VRX Motherboard won't boot


Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike

New Motherboard Problem


I believe you have a driver conflict
Check your BIOS is set for CPU etc.
And Uninstall all drivers And see if computer start with only the windows drivers present.
As if you have just installed windows and no M/board drivers.
And reinstall M/board drivers one at a time Should fix your problem
