I tried changing keyboards,nothing. when I pluged it back in totaly dead, had to plull off jumper, now its running ( fans) that is and performing automatic IDE configuration. [Invalid configuration info...

Many motherboards have a "clear CMOS jumper" capability. There are 3 pins on the Mobo and the jumper is put on pins 1 - 2 for normal operation and moved to position 2 - 3 to clear CMOS memory. (It may be the other way around on some Mobo's). Your PC will oly work with the jumper in the normal position. If you temoraily moved it to the clear position (and then put it back to normal) you erased your cmos memory which remembers the date & time, hard drive cofiguration and many other importnt parameters which need to be set correctly in order for your PC to run properly. If you have the manual that came with your motherboard, it explains how to go into cmos setup and set these parameters. If you do not have this manul, navigate through the menus and choose "default (or optimal) bios settings" Then set your date and time, choose save bios settings and exit bios setup. Hopefuly your computer will start up OK now. If not, you should find a PC technician to help you.

I am facing a problem to install my XFX Radeon HD 4350 1GB graphics card. My PC has a intel DG31PR with core 2 duo and 3 gb ddr2 RAM. the CPU starts but there is no visual on my ACER monitor. I have...

It sounds like you need to change a BIOS setting. I don't have this MoBo, but on others there is a toggle to make the integrated graphics primary or secondary. You would need to change it to secondary. On this card this should happen automatically - so check BIOS settings and that your new card is properly seated in the slot.

Installing External Graphics Cards
If you want to install a 3rd party external graphics card instead of using the onboard graphics, follow these steps:
  1. Install the 3rd party external graphics card, following the installation instructions that come with the card.
  2. Integrated graphics is automatically turned off.

"Reset you're cmos/bios jumper to

No need to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:
  • By removing the CMOS battery
  • By using the motherboard jumper
  • By using MS DOS command
  • By using software
  • By using Backdoor BIOS password
Now I'll try to explain each method one by one:
A. By Removing the CMOS Battery:
Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.
If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

C. By Using MS DOS Command:
This method works only if you have access to the system when its turned on because this method requires MS DOS. Open Command Prompt from Programs menu and provide following commands one bye one:
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
NOTE: The first character in the above commands is "O" and not the number 0.
After providing the above commands, restart your system and it should reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password.
If you are curious to know how it works? then let me explain the above commands:
In this method we are using the Debug tool of MS DOS. The "O" character present at first in these commands, outputs the values to IO ports. The number 70 and 71 are port numbers which are used to access CMOS memory. By providing FF value we are telling CMOS that there is an invalid checksum and it resets the CMOS settings as well as BIOS password.

Powers up no video and mouse stays lit when powers off

This is an old motherboard, with this in mind there are a couple things for you to try. Power off the system and unplug the power cable from the power supply. Remove the left side of you're case. Touch any metal surface to discharge possible static.
First clear the cmos jumper on the motherboard. See page 1-17 in you're manual for the location of the cmos battery and cmos jumper. Also see page 1-21 to clear / reset the cmos battery. (Don't forget to set the jumper back to normal after 30 seconds.
Doing this will reset the bios to its default setting.
If you added a graphics card to one of the PCI slots remove it.
(For now).
Re-connect the power cord for the power supply and power-on the system. If the motherboards built in VGA controller is working you should have display on your monitor and since we cleared the cmos the bios will want you to enter the bios to adjust all its settings.
If you do not have display than the onboard controller is defective. You can add a PCI video card into any one of the 3 (White in color PCI slots). It’s not uncommon for the mouse to stay lit. If you're mouse is plugged into a PS-2 port try un-plugging it when the system is off.
Then re-connect it with the system off. You can also buy a USB to PS-2 adapter. Most new mice and keyboards come with this type of adapter. See the link provided;
If you're mouse and keyboard are PS-2 and connects to the system by USB, try another opened USB port. The next link opends to Biostar and you're motherboard;

No disply of my motherboard plzz help mee.

Good day sir/maam, hi, if your motherboard wont turn on, you need to make sure that these 5 things are in good order. (By the way, disconnect everything except these listed 5.)
  1. (PC is on) Your power supply, make sure that the exhaust fan is spinning as you turn it on.
  2. (PC is off) Your memory module, (ddr1 or ddr2) clean the contacts using an eraser(pencil) the gold plate contacts and a clean brush your motherboard memory slot.
  3. connect the casing's pc speaker on the motherboard.
  4. connect a video card, make sure its good. If you are using the motherboard's VGA, dont connect a video card. Temporarily reset the CMOS, use or locate cmos battery jumper setting. usually its 1&2 set the jumper to 2&3, then back to 1&2. connect a good monitor.
  5. Connect a keyboard.
Now power on your PC, check your Keyboard, you should see two sets of lights: first set (NUM LOCK + CAPS LOCK + SCROLL LOCK) then a few seconds the second set (NUM LOCK only). at this point you should hear a beep from the PC speaker.

If not, you may hear 1 long and 3 short beeps. bad video card. OR continous beeps, bad motherboard.

If you did not hear anything, do it all over again several times.

Still not working? replace your motherboard, its bad.

hope this helps.

Clear BIOS pwd micron gx3 notebook

Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

Or take out the coin battery and replace it after 10 seconds.

Note, all bios settings will be set to default. So be aware of some possible issues you may need to correct in bios after the reset.

No video mouse or keyboard but all power and leds are working

there are several problems to this case.

1. check the 24 pin power supply and be sure to plugin the 4 pin power supply just beside the cpu.

2.ram not placed correctly

3.Power supply inefficient.

4.BAD BIOS SETTINGS Try resetting bios i.e.., CLEAR CMOS or remove onboard battery, wait for a while and then place it again.

5.RAM is damaged

6. Highly overclocked cpu - resetting bios works

Check all the above to see whether your computer comes online.

845gvsr startup problem

Try changing the CMOS Battery, Are you sure you are putting the jumper on the right pins, what happens if you save and exit bios without changing the jumper back, you may be resetting the CMOS with the jumper. does the clock keep accurate time if you leave the jumper on so you can get into the BIOS after turning PC off unplugging power then plug back in and check time in BIOS, if it is not keeping time, you may have a bad battery

Can not power-on

If you Motherboard was working initialy then there should be no problems once you replace the jumper to the correct (normal) cmos setting, ensure that this is done correctly because this could be you problem. if the jumper is in the correct position and all you other hard ware is functioning correctly and still your motherboard won't power up then check that you memory module(s) are installed correctly as well as that they and the processor chip are all functioning correctly. if you have checked all these and you still have a problem then you will have you replace your motherboard as it could be burnt or damaged.
