Question about AMI American Megatrends UltraSCSI Controller (46170908004)

1 Answer

Weird error message on boot. BIOS error?

I’m working on a system with the following motherboard:


Board: ECS K7S5A 1.0
Bus Clock: 66 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 07.00T 04/02/01

And I am getting this message when trying to boot up.

RPL-ROM-ADR: 0007 950B BA24
RPL-ROM_IRQ: 11
RPL-ROM-PIO: DC00

RPL-ROM-FFC: 5
Searching for Boot Record from floppy… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from CDROM… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from IDE-0… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from SCSI… Not Found

Boot Failure
Insert BOOT diskette in A:
Press any key when ready

I’m kind of confused because I just did a clean install of XP Home, downloaded all of the Hotfixes, and everything was fine until I just turned it on the other day and got the above message. No major changes were made.


Thanks in advance,
Dave

    I ended up replacing the hard drive. And then it was fine.



    Not sure what you meant by reflashing.

This is a strange one. Does the BIOS on your motherboard detect your hard drives at all? I'd try the lowest level first. If so, then try to boot from your XP CD ROM (hopefully this should work). Try to go into recovery console to see if your hard drive can even be mounted by the system. I'd check there.

If you still have issues,try to reflash your mobo BIOS to the most current one. Could be a flaky BIOS issue.

The sound on my L7VMM2 motherboard is not working.


Hi,

First of all which operating system is on the machine?

Secondly have you been into the BIOS to see if the on-board has been disabled. To get into the BIOS restart the computer and press either the Del or Esc key to access the BIOS.

Also go to device manager and see if the audio has been disabled from there.

If you have installed Windows 7 or Vista then there could be a chance that the motherboard drivers are not designed for the operating system. If that's the case then no driver will work.
You would have to manually search the internet for someone who may have found a compatible driver.


Regards.

No sound--problem Multimedia Audio Controller


Your machine should use the AC97 codecs from Realtek. Should the standard AC97 codecs not work try the HD codecs which are linked from the same page. Windows update can sometimes create the problem you're experiencing - a reinstall should do the trick.

Motherboard upgrade


That computer uses a proprietary motherboard. Only that one or one from the same Gateway family will fit, and the power supply from an old PIII will not work with the newer systems. Don't waste your cash.

Most common issue's for not being able to boot PC system.
1. Swap power cord/replace. Check video connection cable,
Check monitor power cable. (Check wall outlet is good).
2. Reset cmos/bios. (Need to use manual for board to reset)
3. (No display on monitor, can hear fan's running & LED's on case light/flash). Remove & re-seat video card, same for memory. (While in PC check all power connections & data cables to devices.
4. Fans not running & no LEDs do not light/flash. Power supply may be bad.

Luck!

Need information please


This mainboard supports UltraDMA 66/100. UDMA is a technology that accel-erates the performance of devices in the IDE channel. To maximize performance, install IDE devices that support UDMA and use 80-pin IDE ca-bles that support UDMA 66/100.
