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

1 Answer

Is motherboard dead?

This is only a quicktest to see if the motherboard is no longer working.

I am using a mother board model of ECS P4KM800-m7. It only serve me for almost a year only, then it crashes.

If I remove all the peripherals including the add on cards and the memory(RAM) and the processor (INTEL P4 1.45Ghz), and what is left connected to the motherboard is the monitor connected to the onboard graphics, would it display anything or none at all? Or will it sound or beep, if there is nothing connected in it?

My test results were it doesnt show anything on the screen and no beeping sound. Is this mean motherboard is no longer working.

Hoping for your advice. thank you.

    i have already find the solution and it is only due to the POWER SUPPLY, I cant beleive it.

    On my previous troubleshooting, I have already check the possibility of power supply failure, by checking the voltage level of each pins corresponding to its color coding. All level was fine at that time. I cant believe that it is not enough just to check the level of voltage..

    This weekend, I visit my friend who is also a computer whiz and tried to do the final test and I supposed is the most effective of all troubleshooting. He has a computer working, and all I have done was to put the suspected devices such as processor, add on cards and memory to the working one. But, unluckily he was unable to tell me that we havent have both processor chipset for the motherboard.

    Thank GOD I also bought my POWER SUPPLY because I also suspect that it may have somehow fail, even though I tested it.

    EUREKA!! when i connected it to his PC, the same problem occur, so that concludes that the power supply is not working anymore.

Either motherboard, ram module or if no power at all sounds more like a power supply. If the computer has on board video you will need the ram to get any video. But with it removed the board should still beep if the case speaker is connected to the board. Have seen a lot of these less expensive motherboards fail. If there is no power up at all or lights coming on on the case I would think it is a power supply problem. Happens all the time and quite easy to repair. Just put on a new power supply.

You can download the latest drivers from the ECS website. They have two versions of the board listed: P4M800-M7 (V1.0) and P4M800-M7 (V3.1). Click on the link for the one you have (the version is marked on the board) and you can download what you need.

Sound driver


Your motherboard is a BIOSTAR right ?

Ok there are 2 versions I will post the drivers for those 2 versions.

P4M800-M7A v1.0
http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en%2Dus/mb/driver.php?S_ID=92

These are the complete drivers, the sound driver is there too under onboard audio.

P4M800-M7A v7.0
http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en%2Dus/mb/driver.php?S_ID=93

From what I can see they both use the same drivers.

I hope this helps.

The elitegroup website has a similar name but no A at the end
P4M800-M7
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=531&DetailName=Driver&DetailDesc=&CategoryID=1&MenuID=6&LanID=0

So from your model I would say it is a biostar, get it from the links above, if it is an elitegroup (ECS) get it from the last link.

Motherboard User Manual - Can not find one


When you bought the mother board, the manual should be at the bottom of thte box. Unfortunately, the company who made that motherboard no longer supports it, or lists it in the archives. You may look more here: http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Index.aspx?MenuID=0&LanID=9. This is the ECS website.
