Question about EliteGroup ECS P4M800-M Socket 478/P4M800/FSB800/A&V&L/M-ATX Motherboard (MOTEC18)

1 Answer

No monitor output, no booting screen appears, no sound in the motherboard

I cannot get to the booting screen because well i guess my motherboard has already an error. As if there is no signal flowing to the monitor. Im sure that the monitor is working very well.

I have troubleshoot it myself to see where the error come from, which part of the PC. I have disconnected all the add on cards including the memory and the processor leaving only the monitor connected to the onboard plug. The same problem appear. The hard disk led is always on and not blinling as i turn on the power. The powersupply is working ( I guess) because the cpu fan and the processor fan(when it is still connected) is working. When I also turn it on, there is no sound in the motherboard.

From this I concluded that the motherboard has error. Is my coclusion right. Do I really have to replace that already.

Hoping for your reply. thanks.

Try your processor to the other computer that is working with the same CPU socket to prove that is working. If the processor work to the other computer it slightly proved that the mboard is dead, but sometimes processor hang-up on the mboard try to install back processor to suspected MB, there is a 20% guarantee solving the problems.Otherwise if the processor not working on the other computer something wrong with your processors. may this help.

My hp pavillion tx 2000 laptop is not working.............. when i turn it on, all the relevant lights comes on but nothing appears on the screen. i only get a blank screen.................. what could...

If you hear it start up and the lights come on, try hooking up an external monitor. When you do, be sure to push the Fn key plus whatever special function key shows 2 monitors on it so the output will be directed to the external monitor.
Sounds like the LCD screen might not be working.

Dark screen, nothing comes out.

Make sure all connections are tight and secure. Troubleshoot like this.

Can you see the boot screen when it boots up( Before the Windows logo appears.)

1. Check and tighten all connections,

2. Possible monitor went out.

MSI 7041 Motherboard problem?

RAM would be my next guess. If the board is bad, so could the RAM be as well. Try swapping some known good RAM and see what happens. Or, at the least (if you have more than one stick), remove all but one and try again. Repeat until all sticks have been tried by themselves - you could just have one RAM stick causing the problem.

However, usually even if you have one bad stick, your system will still post, just show less memory. On the off-chance that all sticks are bad, then you might have similar symptoms.

Sounds like a bad mobo to me :(

Output to monitor

Hello macks_11:
I need more information about the problem.

You can have a bunch of things which are having problems.
monitor cable and or connectors on the monitor or on the computer.

Check your monitor with another monitor.

Make sure the cable connectors are not damaged such as bent pins.
If all that checks okay, then you need to look at the computer.
Test the video output on the computer.
Make sure the video in the control panes/system is working.
Make sure that the monitor is detected in the system. Some monitors will not turn on unless it is correctly detected and setup in the system. They should still work at the bios boot, though.

I am kind of guessing around, and hope that something here is a help to you,
take care,
