Question about Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (683562472159) Motherboard

955X7AA-8EKRS2 doesn't start


I am having some issue with my system. I tested the ram, hard drive and graphic card in another system and they are all working. The only 2 things which remain untested are the motherboard and the CPU.

When I turn the system on the the hardrive starts reading for half a second and then stops. The screen remains asleep, nothing is ever displayed. The strange thing is there's no beeping coming out of the system at any point which kind of leave me in the dark to determine the source of the problem.

I believe that the motherboard is working (but could be wrong) as when I take the graphic card out of the system and start it; I get a couple of beeps. However that doesn't mean that the motherboard isn't damaged, or does it? BTW does any one know where i could get the list of what the beeps mean coz they are not part of the motherboard's manual.

please can any one help?

many thanks

thanks for your reply however I have tested RAm and graphic card in another system and they are both fully functioning. As I said in my initial post I have managed to narrow it down to 2 things the motherboard and the CPU.
The computer doesn't beeps when I switch it on. It do beep though when I switch it on without the graphic card which makes me beleive that it is the CPU rather than the motherboard... Do you think I am right?
Many thanks

When i turn my ATXAEG on the green light comes on but will not do anything

Sub out your ram one at a time and test, if you find one bad stick it will in some cases shut the computer down, next unplug hard drive and test, if no change you may have a bad video graphics card, unplug if possible! if system come back you know the graphics card is the problem, if none of these help the motherboard is the likely issue.

System hanging while playing games with Palit 7200GS graphic card

There is a chance that system overheats. I would start from cleaning dust from internal coolers of computer. Then I would suggest to put additional cooler on Graphic Card if it has passive cooling. If that not sort your problems out then I would suggest to test you hardware. Test Hard Drive, RAM and put some stress tests on CPU and GPU. Good luck!

Nvidia 8600m graphics card repairable

Graphics cards on laptops are part of the motherboard and cannot be replaced and near impossible to repair.
The graphic card uses shared RAM, it uses part of the RAM module/s and if the RAM is faulty, it could affect the graphics card. I suggest you re-seat the RAM module/s to see if it fixes the problem, if not take the RAM to your friendly computer store or repair center and get them to test the RAM for you.
If the RAM is OK then you have a motherboard problem and a replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution.
But you could remove the hard disk and put it into a USB hard disk adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive.

sounds like might be a bad card,

alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.
