Hey im not the brightest crown in the box, but i built a computer and im having a few problems. i had my comp running fine but someone tried to put in a modem and screwed it all up. i cant remember where i had the dip switches set and he changed them. now my sound card doesn't work. it is on pci-1. can u help?
here is the pdf with your user manual from the board. the pci indeed is the slot for the modem and for the sound card,also. the pci are slots near the agp slot..shorter than the agp.they are equivalent so you can put the modem and the sound card and to interchange the place if you want. I think youll find more usefull infos in the manual anyway. good luck

You can turn this off in your Bios settings. To do this, press delete when computer starts booting up and this will open the bios screens. Go to Advanced Bios Features and look for 'Full Screen Logo Show', set this to disabled. Some of the soyo boards will vary in how you do this so just look at what yours has in the Advanced Bios page, some you will change the Logo size to make it go away and another you switch between Logo-0 and Logo-1. Lastly, if you are running the p4i865pe plus dragon 2 v1.0 board and/or bio version 865dp1a2 there seems to be no way to get rid of it (updating that bio version to the newest one may change that though)
First reconnect both connection to harddrive power cable and ide or sata cable.
Make sure harddrive is set as master you can set it as master with jumper settings on harddrive.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 to enter in bios then you can see bios setup on screen make sure harddrive is recognized there.
Reconnect RAM memory.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
hello sir, hi im afraid that the dragon plus has no AMD x2 (DUAL CORE) compatible CPU. if you want a dual core motherboard compatible, get the socket AM2 version for AMD or the LGA 775 for intel processor.
It may be your RAM. Try using only one RAM card at a time and keep switching them until you figure out which one it is. Otherwise, you could try a PCI graphics card, but you would have to change the settings in the BIOS so it knows to use the PCI card instead of the AGP.
You can also check to make sure the processor is in it's socket correctly.
Finally, if you can, try the components with another motherboard to see if it is the motherboard.
I would say ram. Most the time you have lockups is because of a bad ram address. The system will run for a while till you fill up enough resources to reach the bad ram address then the system will lock up. The funny part of your problem is that it doesn't happen with the other CPU. But I don't think the DDR400 ram was designed to be used in systems with a Prescott CPU. The motherboard may accept the ram and the CPU's all right but the Prescott was a pretty powerful CPU for it's time and I think most of the systems it was designed to run in used a lot faster ram.
