Foxconn 945G7MD will not start every time switch on

Some time the computer start, and other time it will not start at all. After taking the CPU out and back again, some time start. I have changed every thing in the box and even started the board out side the box. It sems to me that the there is a contact problem between the CPU ( Intel P4 2.3 Ghz 775 Sockt). Has any one had the same problems? Thanks

    I get the same problem even when the board is out of the case and I did reset the BIOS using the onboard jumper. Today I called the tech. support of the supplier and they think it is related to the BIOS can not see the CPU. A BIOS update may resolve the problem. I still think it is a contact problem because if I put some prusser on the back of the board around the CPU, some time it comes on. I have never been happy with the new 775 socket but I will do what they say and keep you informed.

    I have the same problem (K8N DL). pm pc 2xcpu 4x1gig 3xhdd

    I removed every thing left 1 cpu and a ram, then it started. turned off, left it about 20sec turned on nothing happened. Removed all again + com battery reset, install 1 cpu and 1x ram, nothing. installed all parts, left it for 48 hours, turned on the power switch. LED light flicker for a while then power comes on and cuts off immediately. after few seconds try it again system comes up and everything is fine. only problem is that if I shut it down same thing will happen. I do not know why. but think there is a short somewhere

    but then again if there is one the system shoud shut down or crash. but that doesnt happen.

    any halp please

Hi. I did update the BIOS but it did not solve the problem. I got in touch with Foxconn Tech Support and I was asked to change the board, then all problems solved. It was a faulty motherboard.
Thanks to all.

Does the unit start with the board removed from the case? If so I would say you have a grounding issue. Make sure you have the little insulated washers on all the screws holding the M/board in the computer. Other than that try resetting the bios using the onboard jumper, usually jumper J4 or JP4

You better hope that the CPU you got is on the support list of the motherboard.

Go to Fox, and look at your model, check the CPU support list to see if the BIOS was set for the CPU.

I have a foxconn 945G7MD 8EKRS2H motherboard and I need to hook up the 2 USB ports that I have to it. I already have 4 in the back these 2 are in the front.

the 2 sockets in the fromt should have a cable to connect them to the mainboard, look about for 8 or 9 pin connections, most are marked as usb and connect your cable to this socket.

Need new heatsink compatible with foxconn nbt-cmi284bx-c

That's not an honest question; are you somehow going to use both the new heatsink and the old one together, so they have to be compatible?  Since you're not, I suggest looking for heatsinks compatible with P4 on a shopping or trade site, which totally have you covered.  There's nothing to fix here.

That system is a little old though.  For your electricity dollar and your time, you will get more use out of a nice 6-core CPU, DDR3, etc.  Bon chance.

Computer doesnt start FOXCONN 865A01-PE-6EKRS

Most of the times beeping at the start up refers at problems with the memory. So try starting your computer with 1 memory stick at a time, placed at the slot near the CPU (usually marked as DIMM 1) to find out memory error.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Foxconn CPU fan making noise

It sounds like the fan bearing is shot, I'd recomend not using the computer until fan is replaced.
yes it is possible to replace the fan, i would recomend that you replace it with an aftermarket cooler. all you need is what kind of CPU you have, then find out what kind of socket it is, from there you can find the cooler you would like.

Foxconn motherboard 945g7md

Are you connecting them via SATA or PATA ?

If you are using PATA you'll need to set the jumpers on the drives. One needs to be a master and the other has to be a slave. Normally the Hard drive would be considered the master.

If they are SATA drives go into your bios and make sure the SATA ports are enabled and not in RAID mode.
