Re: Just purchased this motherboard, can't get bios to...

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.

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

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,

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.

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

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.

Unable to POST MB

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

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;

Good luck!

Failed to boot, i cant even get to the bios! only the fan running, led(green) and (red) indicator doesn't even light.

Dear Client, unpluged all the data cables, power cables or wires, bios cell and RAMs. Everything should be unpluged from the motherboard for two hours and then reassmbled. It will work properly but when you reassembled it just plug with the follwing devices.

* Power Cables
* Data Cables
* Bios cell
* Processor + Fan
* RAMs

Do not attach CD-Rom or Hard Disk, just turn on the computer without Hard Disk and CD-Rom and try to enter in bios setup. I assure your problem will be solve. Now you can attach the CD-Rom and then try to boot up from the CD-Rom and in the last you should try to attach Hard-Disk. I hope you will do it step by step and get success.

Good Luck

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

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

Problem ide

Hi gustabir,
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

It's very possible that while you were swapping out the dvd-rom you in bumped other data cables & power cables to other devices, just enough to cause the bios not to see them. Re-check all connectors & power cables. Start the system. Still no windows? Enter the bios make sure your devices are showing up. Like your hard drive floppy & dvd-rom. If you have to pull the cables off & reconnect them.
