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

Re: No boot, no video

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.

sounds like you have possibly upgraded the motherboard with a new CPU? Or somebody has? If you have just obtained the hardware check that the CPU that is installed is on the CPU list. This information should be on the manufacturer's website.
If the CPU is on it it may be that the board needs a bios update to be fully compliant with it.

I am assuming the message is displayed during boot up?

Problem msi motherboard k7n2

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


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.

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.

No display or beeps, Tried everythin, and out of ideas

ok, you seem to have covered most of the normal trouble shooting procedures.. Now, you say it beeps when you take all the ram sticks out but does nothing when you fit ram. My first impression is that this is a ram issue. Maybe the ram is not compatible with the board or has been damaged. This can also be the case if the board itself is damaged. It could be that the i/o controller chip may have thrown in the towel and fitting ram causes the board to access this chip. No ram means control passes over to the BIOS error routines and the i/o chip is NOT accessed. Or, it could be both.. Try the ram sticks in another PC first. Static discharge damage is very common, even if you have the anti-static mats etc. I have mats, a wrist strap even my workbench is grounded along with my soldering station etc but I have still damaged boards through static discharge. I have also found that some brands of Ram simply do not work with certain boards so try the ram in another PC first !! Also, make sure that the ram you are using is correct and that you are NOT mixing different sizes or speeds. Next, make sure that non of the USB ports in the case are connected and that the boards own USB ports are not damaged as a bent pin in a port will always cause issues. Sorry that this may not be much help but as I said before, you are covering all the bases, the beeps without ram are making me lean towards a ram issue though..

Cpu fan stop few second after starting pc

Hello,have you installed new motherboard or CPU?
Follow these steps again
1) Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer & open up the case.

2) Wear an anti-static glove or at very least discharge your static by touching a metal surface or power supply

3) Disconnect the main 20pin ATX power connector from the motherboard & the square 4pin ATX2 power connector

4) Remove any PCI cards you have & disconnect ALL drive cabling from the MOTHERBOARD. Also disconnect any internal USB fly leads from the motherboard.

5) You should now have ONLY the cpu+heatsink/fan, memory & video card installed. Locate the round silver battery in the bottom right corner of the board. Just below it, you'll see a plastic jumper cap. This cap should be covering 2 pins (pins 1 + 2) with pin 3 bare. It will be marked JP1. Move the jumper to cover pins 2-3 instead. Leave in this position for about 30 seconds, then return the jumper to its original position (pins 1-2).

6) Reconnect the square 4pin ATX2 power connector & the main 20 pin ATX power connector. Make sure that the case speaker or buzzer is connected also.

7) Make sure the only external devices connected are the keyboard/mouse & monitor. Reconnect the power lead & power on the system

Let me know what happens

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.

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). 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). 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

This could be several issues. You need to be much more specific on exactly what you done and what you installed. No video boot could be the following:
1)Memory clock speed not compatible- Say board only see clock speeds of 200,266,333mhz but you installed 400mhz CL or the bios is not set to auto mem cl speed and you need to manually change mem clock speed.
2)Your CPU, memory, or video card not fully inserted
3)Memory module of video no good if it has onboard mem cells
4)You forgot to plug in the yellow/black CPU connector on the board sending no power to the cpu
5)CPU pin bent on install or not seated correctly
I could go on and on but there are a few issues that cause no video boot so double check all you cards and connections.
