Question about Biostar P4M900-M7 Fe VIA P4M900 Socket 775 mATX Motherboard w/Video & Audio

New motherboard won't power up

I puchased a barebones kit with all the basics (PSU, motherboard, RAM, HD, case, CPU), but after connecting everything and double checking connections, the system will not power up. I checked the PSU with a paper clip, and it powers up by itself just fine, but when plugged into the motherboard, nothing happens. Could it just be a bad motherboard?

First check your motherbord POWER pin it is in corner of motherbord.

Check for motherboard. use only 3 parts:

motherboard
PSU
CPU + COOLER

Connect your motherboard to PSU and see, if any LED light comes from motherboard. If LED is on, then try to turn motherboard on and see if cooler works.
Are case wires (power +, power -, hdd +, hdd -, reset+, reset -, power led+, power led - and speaker wire ) connected correctly?
Those wires look like this:


front-panel-headers-nsatmeh50lx5u1woeaeqllmn-4-0.jpgThis image is just reference.
If the power wire (sometimes called POWER SW) is not connected correctly, when you press the power button of case, PC just won't turn on.

If PC turns on and CPU fan spins, then try to add RAM, Graphics card and try again.
Next step is to hear BEEP sound. One short beep sound is normal, anything else is not normal and indicates the problem of the specific hardware according to the sound code. Sound code is BIOS dependent. In case ASUS A8V-E Deluxe, it is Award BIOS. Check below for Award BIOS beep codes

1 long, 2 shortIndicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information

1 long, 3 shortVideo card not detected __ (reseat video card) or bad video card

Beeps repeating endlessly __ RAM problem.

Repeated high frequency beeps while PC is running __Overheating processor (CPU)

Repeated beeps alternating high & low frequency ___Issue with the processor (CPU), possibly damaged

Hi,
Yes it could be the motherboard but i would go back and check all the connections before you come to the decision that the motherboard is bad.
Check that you have your connections right on the front panel header, also check the connectors to and from the PSU (power supply unit)
Check that the motherboard support the bus speed of the memory (usually its 400MHz)
Try clearing the CMOS too which is a small plastic coloured jumper next to or near the motherboard battery.


Good luck.

Connecting my PSU to my Motherboard


The bare essentials to start a computer are PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Video.

Its possible the PSU arrived DOA. Though I've only had 2 DOA PSU's in the 15 years I've been building custom computers.

Hope this helps.

Well depending on your bios version, it could be an array of things.

First try removing the video card and re-seating it.

Then re-seat the RAM.

If the problem persists re-seat the CPU.

Let us know the exact model of your motherboard so we can better troubleshoot your problem.

When you turn on your computer the system does a POST (Power On Self Test). If the POST sees an eror it will tell the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and the BIOS will beep a code or display a code that indicated the problem.

Different motherboards contain different BIOS versions. BIOSes use different beep codes for problems depending on the manufacturer.

Fans run at full speed under normal task.


THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE CPU AND MB AND PSU IS NOT COOLING OFF ENOUGH AND CAUSING THE FAN TO RUN ON HIGH ALL THE TIME, THE PSU MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS POWER TO RUN THE CONFIGURATION TO KEEP THE SYSTEM AND HARDWARE TO COOL.

I READ IT IN ONE OF MY PC MAGAZINE, ANOTHER PERSON UPRADED SYSTEM, ADDED SOME OTHER STUFF BUT THE MB AND POWER SUPPLY UNIT DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH WATTS TO SUPPORT BASIC REQUIREMENTS OPERATING THE SYSTEM BASIC NEEDS.
FIND SOFTWARE THAT KEEPS EYE ON HEAT ISSUES, MB, VIDEO CARD, RAM, PS, CPU, CPU COOLERS, NIC CARDS, SOUND CARDS,
ETC.
EACH PART REQUIRES SO MUCH POWER
AND HERE HOW IT BRAKE DOWN FOR EACH COMPONET

MB 20-35+ WATTS
CD ROM 20-25 WATTS
DVD 30-45 WATTS
DISK DRIVE 5 WATTS
HD 5-15 WATTS
STANDARD VIDEO VARD 5-15 WATTS
MEMORY 5 WATTS PER MB

NEW SYSTEMS WITH THE FOLLOWING STUFF IN IT FLOPPY DRIVE,CD-ROM, MB, 16MB RAM, REQUIRES A MIN. 150 WATTS OF POWER.

BUT I KNOW YOU MAY HAVE TOP OF THE LINE VIDEO CARD WITH GGR4 WITH 512MB
MEMORY, 2-8 GIG OF RAM, 23 INCH LCD MONITOR, 2 500GB HD, BLUETOOTH AND WIRELESS NETORK, AND WIFI CAPABILITIES,
NEW DUAL CORE CPU TOP LINE MOTHERBOARD, COOLED VIDEO CARD,RAM COOLER ALSO AND THIS SYSTEM POWER WATTAGE REQUIREMENTS MAYBE SOME WHERE AROUND 400-600 WATT, AND MOST OF THAT IS FOR THE SYSTEM RAM AND THE VIDEO RAM YOU ARE RUNNING
REMEMBER 5 WATTS PER 1 MEGABYTE OF
RAM
IT WILL ADD UP FAST BOY'S AND GAL'S

ROD

PS I HOPE I DIDNT BORE ANYONE,
IT MAY SAVE YOUR SYSTEM FROM BURNING UP.
