Question about Biostar P4M800 Pro-M7 (P4M8PROM7) Motherboard
I attempted to upgrade my system RAM from 1gb to 2gb. In doing so, I caught a hint of a whiff of smoke/something acrid. Now, the machine boots, but the monitor is not getting a signal using either the onboard video, or the graphics card.
First try removing the memory you installed and see if it boots normally. If that does not work then try replacing the original memory with the new memory.
If the motherboard beeps at you then look up the beep code pattern in the owner's manual. If you do not get any beeps and no video output at all then it is possible the motherboard or processor was shocked. You can try testing the motherboard with another compatible processor. If that does not work then it is likely the motherboard is bad.
Hope this helps!
