1 beep then shuts off

Hmmm, one beep is good! lol!

Means P.O.S.T. is good.

I see we're working with an AMD processor, and a Socket 462 (Socket A), motherboard.

Let's look at some basic installation problems for that motherboard, and see if any fit;

1) Since it is an AMD processor motherboard, you have to be SURE that Thermal Paste has been applied PROPERLY, and applied.

An AMD processor runs hot, for the models that fit that motherboard.
If no Thermal Paste has been applied, the AMD processor could have burned up.

2) Anti-Static Precautions:
I know, I know. But you would be surprised with those of us, who do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are; and work on computers.
(Hmmm, wonder why it doesn't work? Must be a bad motherboard)

3) Mounting to the Support Plate.

The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate; or is part of the computer case.
Mounting of the motherboard to Support Plate can be done with plastic Spacers; or metal Standoff's.

(Standoff. Shapes vary a little, but basically; 3/8ths to 1/2 inch long, hex shaped, threaded shaft on one end; and a threaded hole on the other end)

If a Standoff is NOT mounted to a motherboard mounting hole; and is just sitting out there on the Support Plate; it can touch exposed solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard, and cause a Short Circuit.

MOST of the time if the 'offending' Standoff is removed; or placed where it should be, (Motherboard mounting hole), then the motherboard, etc may be OK.

4) Power Supply:

If the Power Supply was on it's last leg, this may be the 'straw that broke the camel's back'. Power Supply went to the Power Supply graveyard in the sky.

If the Power Supply does not have enough power (Wattage, and Amp's), then you would also see the problem you stated.

New Power Supply, or old? What is the manufacturer, and model number?

Dont seem to have enough front panel pins for all my case wires

Hi Greeneyedbj,

What kind of I/O connectors are you looking for *********** board sir?


The image above has the following for your I/O connectors.
1. Three usb headers up to 6 additional devices, most casing can support 2-4 pins. 2. Front Audio Connector. 3. Front Panel Connector. Power Sw, Reset Sw, Powed Led, HDD Led

Branded casing has the following I/O connectors.
1. Esata 2. Firewire (Dont use the USB headers, firewire use a different pin-layout) 3. Chassis Intrusion Alarm Header.

Hopefully this information helps.
You can ask for more help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I have looked at videos on how to install a amd processor and heatsink.on to a new motherboard.Should I install it on a grid bag antistatic on a wooden table.or on a antistatic mat.Which is safer.

Hello Steve476

Since you already watched a guide video, so i presume you already know aight?

SO go for wooden table...

Just be sure you dont bend those pins. And follow Directional pattern.

Go and explore your new AMD processor.

I installed the mainboard and I'm not getting the computer to come on. I get a green power light, but when I push the power button, I get nothing.

your not activating the power switch, double check the user manual and be recheck the pwr pin on the header, some are horizontal some are vertical.

if that still doesnt help use a phillips head screw driver and short the two pins you think they are, if they are the pins you were using you have a bad power switch (try using the reset switch as a power switch) if those dont start it try a differant pair until you find the power pins.
