Abit Fatal1y FP-IN9 Boot Problem!?

I just built a new gaming computer with the Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 Motherboard. I started my system up for the first time and i got no boot, no post, nothing on monitor but all fans and FPIO lighters (power lights) where on.

However i got nothing, no indication of problem by the motherboard. So i did a process of elimination incase it was a hardware problem. I stripped the system down to its barebones (i.e CPU, GPU, RAM, PSU & Motherboard) and switched it on again... still no boot. I cleared the CMOS several times... still no boot.

I removed each memory module (I have Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC6400) one by one and then both... no beeps at all, but all lights come on and fans spin.
I then removed the CPU from the socket and switched the system on, normally we should get a beep, i got no beeps and system still did same thing.

I tested the CPU in another system aswell as the memory and power supply indicating every other component is absolutely fine. The only item causing the problem appears to be the motherboard.

I purchased the motherboard in september 2008 but only just installed it yesterday after waiting so long for purchasing all other components. Just when im ready to fire up the perfect machine this happens.

I want to make sure that it is the motherboard before buying a new one or somehow getting a replacement.
Are there anymore tests i can do?
What will have caused this?
Is this definetly my motherboard?
What can i do about it? Can i get a replacement from Abit?

I really appreciate your help and support..
Thanks very much... Tom

Check your jumper settings. You can probably view jumper diagram online. Make sure all drivers are downloaded and up to date. Try placing windows installation disc in before booting pc. Also check boot setting to make sure hardrive boots second and cd boots first. Also make sure your hard drive jumper is set to master.

I have a Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI motherboard installed in the case with a 750 watt power supply. I turn on the power, and it runs the Plextor CD writer with an XP installation CD and does not boot the hard...

If there is a disk in the cd device the bios is set up to boot up from there first. So if you have a xp OS disk in there that is what will happen . Remove the disk and it should boot from the hard drive if it is properly loaded.

Usually gets as far as the desktop before shutting down

This problem could be associated with over heating. Clean it of any dust, pay sepcial attention to the CPU cooler. It might also be a problem with software. If you turn on your PC without a hard drive installed, is it stable on a screen that says NTLDR is missing or Insert System disk. If it is stable on this screen for a long time longer than say 20 min. Then I would say that it is a software problem. If not then hardware problem!
It would be so nice to help you in person!

Installed a new processor and now it wont work

Is that an upgraded processor? If it is, then somehow, it could be its configuration problem with the older processor on software side. Your previous installation of OS remember its past processor and reporting error.

You can try fresh installation. Just for the input.

Hi lo alarm siren when playing online games

Hi stretcharm_2,

It seems that the hi-lo siren from the mobo indicates that the cpu is over hated.

1st of all, you need to go into the BIOS/CMOS setup to check if the temperature was boosting higher that the prefix alarm. If it's low, but gone up very fast after a few minutes, you need to update to the latest BIOS firmware, as it's part of the Fatal1ty problem.

you can download the bios here, be sure to read all the instruction before you proceed to update the BIOS firmware.


you can always come back here and post a comment if you r no sure.

2nd of all, you need to check is the heatsink was fixed properly.

It's not your fault that's the fan wasn't fixed properly because the stock LGA-775 socket T heatsink's design wasn't a perfect one, and it has 4 very fragile fix-in clips. You need to check if all four clips were fixed firmly in the braket for maximum heat dicipation. It might be broken and you need to replace with another one.

You might need to replace the thermal paste to a better 1.

Please check your manual on how to diassemble the heatsink.

Good Luck,

Don't forget to rate my solution, thanks!!

Blank screen at boot up

Sounds like you need a new motherboard how old is his computer but, before you start looking for a new board try resetting the main board jumpers maybe that will get it to work and if there are no jumpers remove the battery from the motherboard this does the same thing.
