Problem with Biostar P4M800-M7A Motherboard



Ok when i turn on my computer all that happens is the fans and disk go and the light stays red and doesnt flicker or change and it wont boot up.


Ive tried everything that i could think of

Unplugging everything and plugging it back but still nothing

Letting it lose all of the charge stored up.



Why wont my computer boot up?
Is the motherboard fried?

I had exactly the same problem.... waste hours on it. I solved it by clearing the CMOS. Pins 1 and 2 on JCMOS1 are closed in normal operation mode. Move the jumper to pins 2 and 3. I then pressed the power button a few times (the motherboard will not respond to the power button at all when it is configured to reset the CMOS), but I don't think pressing the power button is neccessary. After about 30 seconds, put the jumper back on pins 1 and 2, and power up. When I did this the motherboard responded finally. Hope it helps! :D

The motherboard isn't the problem, it seems something is conflicting with another thing. If your using IDE (the buttload of pins on a thin long cord) you might need a cord that has 2 wires that go to the same pin. They usually are faster anyways. Get a new set of IDE cables then. Or your ram is malfunctioning and you need some new sticks of some. The last ones could be that your processor is fried and well you figure that one.

Sounds pretty much like a motherboard problem. The problem you describe sounds like a RAM problem, probably they are loose in the slot or not snuggled properly. However, since you seem sure its not the RAM, I would consider replacing the motherboard.

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.
