Question about FIC K8-800T Motherboard

1 Answer

Dead Mobo? Bought a FIC K8-800T motherboard combo w/AMD Sempron 3300+2.0GHz CPU/Heatsink/Fan and 1GB DDR400 RAM. Followed all instructions, including clearing CMOS, and then putting jumper back to pins 1&2 (default). I don't get a beep nor a screen, so can't even enter POST setup. I have a GEforce 4 440e 64Mb AGP video card. I did disconnect everything and still couldn't even get to POST screen. Tried suggestion to strip down to essentials, so only thing hooked up was CPU/Fan, RAM, PowerSwitch. Nothing. Replaced CMOS battery, and tried different RAM. Nothing. Took CPU out of slot and put back in. Nothing. I've been reading a lot of posts about similar problems with the same motherboard. You can't get through to their Tech phone #, and no answers via email, so I am very open to suggestions. I'm afraid I may have a DOA mobo, and waited too long to return. :-(

Re: Dead Mobo?

Do you have both power connectors from the PSU hooked up?

You need both the large one near the ram, and the smaller square 4-pin one near the printer port

Hi! I recently bought a MSI MS-6741 Motherboard and set it up with a AMD Sempron 3100+(754) and 1GB of DDR400 RAM (Kingston KVR ,CAS 3.0) and Installed Vista Ultimate on the 120GB P-ATA IDE drive attached...

The board does support up to 2GB DDR400 RAM (for more info on the board try here).

You might also find MSI's support site helpful (here is link to your specific board that has up to date BIOS and drivers).

As for why your system only sees 512MB of RAM, I am not entirely sure, you could try running 'dxdiag' (just type dxdiag into the 'run' utility), which should give you a more accurate reading of how much RAM you have available. Otherwise, certainly try the BIOS update. If you are still seeing only 512MB afterwards, I would certainly be questioning the reliability the board (if the RAM has tested fine on other systems).

CPU Heatsink is cool but fan runs fine no display

No beep or sound means Motherboard Defective, aside from Processors is OK, Memory is OK, and the rest!
Buy a new one not as the same Motherboard you use. ASROCK Motherboard are have a a problem when high temperature occur.

If i am helpful to you, please rate me.
Thank you.

Your CPU may have a problem

Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim

Not posting

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
