Just be sure...
take out everything, except the the power cable and the little speaker. try to turn it on. there will beep sounds. if not, the problem is the board. if there's sound, check connections.

also tell me the model of it, if possible.
after turning it on, check the power and hd leds, if they are on, or blinking.

check if hd and dvd are both jumpered as master. try removing both, just to try to get the bios working.

and one last thing, check it there's a intrusion jumper on board, if yes turn it off.

    just connect power cable, internal speaker and power switch.

    see if system beeps.

    if yes, turn it off and connect cpu and cpu fan.
    the memory and the leds and vga card. no dvd or hd.

    turn on again, bios must appears, if not you may have problems with mobo.

    ill try to find a manual for your mobo and try to help.

Cooler Master 1000w Silent Pro M not compatible with MSI MS-7548 (Aspen) motherboard?


http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2949

So you're using the same CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable on both rigs?
(One of them)

Yes, I see it's a modular cable design, and the CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable, can be used as a single 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps4plus4

ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volt (DC) wires.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

ALL 12 Volt wires go to ONE single 12 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply, BUT; there is nothing saying an individual Yellow wire may be bad.
This is why I wondered if you are using the SAME power cable CONNECTOR. Same power cable.

Yes?
Then suggest it has something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Anatomy-of-Switching-Power-Supplies/327/6

Not aware of any setting to change in BIOS Setup utility - Power.

BUT, I do not know everything! lol!

IMHO there is no reason it will not work, unless as said; something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

From here let's hope someone who really knows what is going on, will post.

Try first resetting your BIOS configuration to bring it to its default settings and that should do the trick....

Hope that helps.........

Non-System disk or disk error


<p><b>Issue:</b><br /> <p>Non-System disk or disk error<br /><br /> <p><img src="reyjoshua07.jpg" /><br /> <p><b>Cause:</b><br /> <p>The current media is not bootable or there was a disk error in attempting to boot.<br /><br /> <p><b>Workaround:</b><br /> <p> <br /> <p>1. <b>Change Boot Media </b><br /> <p>If you are booting from either a DVD, CD, diskette or a USB drive, remove the media and boot from the hard disk. The media is either damaged or is not intended to be bootable.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>2. <b>Set the Correct BIOS Boot Choice </b><br /> <p>The BIOS may be configured to boot from the wrong device. If you suspect this, the device boot order can be changed in the BIOS setup. Be aware there little consistency in BIOS setup operations, even with the same manufacturer on different models. As such, these instructions are bit less precise than we'd prefer.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Reboot and enter the BIOS setup. Often the BIOS displays the correct key to use briefly on screen or you may need to refer to the computer's user manual. Typically you hold down the Del, Esc, F1 or F2 key immediately after booting.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Look for a section on Boot or Booting. Often this appears on top menu. Select the Boot option, and if necessary the Boot order choice. The Boot order choices should list the order of boot devices. Typically the CD is the first boot device with the hard-disk typically second. The diskette may also occur before the hard disk, which is acceptable, although this will slow your hard disk boot by a few seconds. Avoid USB and network boots before the hard disk unless you know for sure you are using them (which is exceptionally rare). <br /> <p><br />Save and exit the BIOS. It will force a reboot. See if this change corrects the issue.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>3. <b>Check Hard Disk and Cables </b><br /> <p>If you had changed, added or removed hard drives, or changed or removed drive cabling, likely something is wrong. Recheck that the drives are properly installed and the cabling has not changed. Switching cables to different motherboard connectors or changing the master/slave drive jumpers (on old ATA drives) can cause this problem. In some systems, the cables were not plugged into the drive or motherboard securely and may have worked loose. Reseat all drive connectors.<br /> <p>It's also possible a hard drive is failing. Use a system diagnostic to validate the drive or swap to another hard disk.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Hope it helps,<br /><br />Thank you for using FixYa<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Best regards,<br />Reyjoshua07<br />

After power on my eMachines C6537, there is no beep sound and nothing shown on screen. The CPU fan and fan in the box are working. The HD drive spin sounds normal. No problem to open doors of DVD and CD...


Disconnect the power cable open the case and pull the CR 2032 battery out for a minute. That will reset the BIOS. If you have no Beep Codes at all the MoBo might be dead. If this were just a video issue there'd be Beep codes. If there's more than one stick of RAM Pull one try to boot then do same with second stick. if there's only one stick of RAM try reseating it.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

I'm doing my first system build. I have everything connected but it will not boot, fear I might not have MOBO wired correctly it is an Abit AN52. Any help would be great.


First off disconnect any devices connected to the board, hard drives, dvd-roms, leave the the memory, processor and power lead connected to the board, try to boot it up.
If the fans run then the power switch is wired up properly, next check the graphics, ensure it is in the socket properly and all power connections are connected up.
If it still dosent boot and you have the manual for the motherboard look for the bios jumber, there are 2 settings normal mode which lets the computer boot, and the other that dosent allow boot, this jumper is normally J12, but have a look in the manual for the motherboard to make sure, if you try all of this and the system still will not boot please post back

New sata LG dvd room,it work correctly,but i can't boot from it


In your bios change the settings for boot order, 

1: DVD Rom
2: n/a
3: n/a
4...
5...
6...

This will force a boot off the only drive available which is the dvd rom.
