Question about EliteGroup P4S5MG/GL+ Motherboard

2 Answers

Jumper Settings I recently took apart my computer, Elite Group p4s5mg/gl+ because I had to reformat the hard drive. Now I have I took one jumper out to use on a dvd rom for another computer. I dont really know where I took it from but now my computer wont start. I turn it on and the cpu fan turns about a quarter way round and it does not start. I think it may be because of the jumper I removed, or the power supply is not working. I have had no problem with the power supply, So I assume it is the jumper. I would like to just find a diagram of jumper settings so I can get my pc up and running again. Help would be great!!!

I need to reset the jumpers for my hard drive quit and i'm trying to install another HD and it reads no OS also will not let me install an Os either?

If you have installed the hard drive and it reads no OS, that means you have a blank hard drive. You need to install Windows on it.
If you took a hard drive out of your system and are replacing it with a new one, place the jumpers on the new one in the same location as they are on the old one.
Different hard drive brands use different jumper locations. When in doubt, the jumper location is printed on the front of the drive or, in the case of a Western Digital, is printed on the bottom of the drive right below the jumper posts.

What are the important of c mos bios jumper in the computer???????

Normal operation is in the default position.

When you move it to the other (non-default) position, it clears all CMOS data- the hard drive types, date/time, security features, DVD/CD drive info, advanced BIOs features, etc.

All the settings will return to factory default.

You do not run your computer with the jumper in the CLEAR CMOS position- it is used to reset the CMOS when power is off.

To use your computer, this jumper must be in the default position.

Gigabyte-GA-8S648FX I updated my BIOS and my pc wont start, please hel'p

Ok, you have 2 x UDMA ATA 133/100/66 Bus Master IDE ports on that motherboard, so you can support 4 ide devices. It is important that you split your devices between the 2 available ide channels (each channel has a seperate ribbon cable). For example if you have 1 hard drive and 1 cd drive you'd want to place each on a seperate channel. If you have 2 hard drives and 1 cd drive it's best to place each hard drive on a seperate channel and the cd drive on the same channel as one of the hard drives. You have to make sure the jumper settings on the drives are correct (1 master and 1 slave) when placing 2 drives on the same channel for example. Most likely your jumper settings are not correct and are causing this problem. The jumpers are located on the rear of the drive near where the power cable is plugged into the drive. Most hard drives have the jumper setting printed on the hard drive. Once the jumpers are correct you should be ok.

Im just about to buy a SATA II 500GB hard disk for this MB, i need to know if this would be compatible with the MB??! Thanks

SATA 2 (SATA 300) is not backwards compatible with a SATA (SATA 150) controller. In order to use a SATA 2 drive on a SATA (SATA 1?) controller, the hard drive must have a jumper position to restrict it to using SATA (SATA 150), and a jumper must be installed. Some drives have the jumper position available (e.g. some recent Samsung), some don't (e.g. some recent Maxtor).
This information can also probably be easily found on your hard drive manufacturer's web site.
If your drive does not have the jumper position available, you must return it and get a SATA 2 one that does, or a SATA drive.

6U214 Motherboard Failure??

1. try clearing your bios setup using the jumper provided on your motherboard. make sure that the computer is shutdown and power cable unplugged before doing this. make the jumper settings and wait for 3 to 5 minutes before returning the jumper settings back to its normal locate the bios clear jumper; it's always near the cmos battery of the mainboard. after doing so, plug back your power cable and power "on" your computer. select bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.


2. or try flashing your motherboard again using the latest bios file available for your board downloaded from dell website. and select to bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

Dvd writter problem in asus motherboard

We likely have a "Jumper" issue here. On the back of the Drive right next to the Data cable there should be a group of jumper pins along with a general diagram or the jumper settings.

The diagram will likely be stamped in the metal next to the jumper group, or on the label.

The settings we are concerned with are CS (Cable Select), M (Master) and S (Slave)

First one I want you to try is CS move the jumper block to connect the pins for CS (If there is another drive on that cable, its jumper should be set to CS as well)

Now try to boot up again. If it works, you are good to go.

If not try the M setting on this drive. If it shares the cable the OTHER drive should be set to S this time.

Now try again. If still no luck reverse which is M and which is S

and try once more.

If ALL of these options fail, please post back here and we will try to assist you further.

Sounds like a heat issue, is the CPU fan spinning?

Are any of the capacitors swollen?

Cannot get harddisk

check both hard drives for jumper position. A typical layout will be: master jumper in master position (see label on back or top of drive), then slave drive jumper in slave position. These jumpers are small and sometimes require the use of needle-nose pliers. Also, the data cable issue: A typical dual drive cable looks like one connector that is physically at the end of a cable yet farther apart than the other two. This gets connected to the motherboard. At the other end of this cable, you will see a connector (for master drive) and nearby, another connector (for slave drive). If your drives support the CAS mode (cable select), then it is irrelevant which connector these drives belong to (assuming you use the 2 closer connectors). If not, it is is imperative that the drive jumpers be properly positioned as described above. Finally, if the above steps were followed and still same problem, then change the BIOS setting from AUTO to forced type. Some BIOS's require the CAS mode to be present on both drives. This can get complicated, but simply write down the settings from each drive (ex: cylinders, sectors, heads...) and then type in these settings at the BIOS screen.
