Try putting in a PCI vid card. Just an older one. Not a PCI- Express unless you have one.

I had the same problem. And the dipwits at ECS programmed the BIOS to default with an PCI vid card. Not on-board.

Then, just go into BIOS and change the boot 'Init Display first' to "on board" or something like that under PnP/PCI Configurations.

Under "Advanced Chipset Features" 'Onboard GPU' make sure it is {Enable if No EXT GPU] or always enable or something like that.

Believe me I had the problem. Was ready to dump it, or do a RMA. Messed around for a year and 1/2 then as a last resort put in an old 2mg PCI card. And it booted right up. I was pissed as hell that they would set the default to an EXT card on a board that claims to be ONBOARD video. Believe me they are going to hear about it.

Also depending on the ram installed. As I am having this problem. Now. It defaults to single channel DDR2. And I can only get 1 533 stick to work. For some reason, the board refuses to post when I have the second of a matched pair in the slot. So if you have that - try taking out the second stick. But try the video deal first.

I agree on external VGA. Had same problem and ECS told me to go talk to my reseller about reprogramming ROM. Put ext VGA in and got to boot sequence only to find a "CMOS not programmed, press F1 to enter setup" notice. Went to BIOS, set time, boot sequence, F10 to save and then exit. On next boot got the same "CMOS not programmed" notice. So frustrated that I can't get through this. Another message to ECS but don't expect much there. Any ideas?

I'm faced with a black monitor, no boot beep, with an operating fan and green light on. XP OS with an ASUS P5P800S motherboard, Thanks Jose


Remove all components from your mb and bios battery. Place jumper to clear cmos and make short to battery cmos. Leave 1min and after place cpu and one ram in mb. Replace jumper from clear cmos in normal position and verify. If not display, change ram.

This mainboard uses SD ram and it sounds like a ram problem.

If there is room for a ddr ram block you can`t use SD ram and DDR ram simultaneously.

Try to insert the old cpu again and upgrade the bios to support a bigger cpu. Not all cpu is supported.

Good luck

Cpu fan running but the mother board does not respond


Remove/disconnect everything (Ram, Cables, Power Supply, Battery, Processor, Pci cards, Display cards if there's one, etc.) from the motherboard, and after while, reconnect/put them on the motherboard again. Make sure you correctly installed the Ram and it's working. Also don't forget to connect both the power supply cables (20 pins connector and 4 pins connector) to the board. Now reboot your system, can you hear anything (beeps)? If this doesn't help, your nearest culprit to the problem is Display card. Good luck

Motherboard won't boot up cpu fan comes on hdd


Just after that there was NO correct answer to fix this problem causes the problem not solved even if it is marked as solved. Me too I have this problem, I was fix it by setting jumpers to default 60 Hz AC power because I won`t have 50Hz AC power or some AC power converter before PSU, I mean this is voltage errors, it`s need to be set to default +5V(60Hz) PSU not +5VSB(50Hz) PSU, (Step1) like might be set to USBPW12 to pin 3 both USB to right side inserted jumper it`s in left side of, near ATX 12v advanced CPU power cable connection socket. Next (step 2) is set up front USB jumpers to +5V or system won`t start up, it`s on motherboard about between PCI1 and PCI2 on right side it must be set to USBPW56 and don`t set it to USBPW78(5+VBS) because system won`t start up, the jumper must be set to right side I mean it`s last jumpers to right side need to be set up, because it`s +5V(60Hz) PSU supply. The USB wake-up feature requires a power supply that can provide at least 500mA on the +5VSB lead when these jumpers are set to +5VSB otherwise the system won`t power up. Next step if it still not starts up its BIOS fault, it`s easy to repair, just (Step3) turn off PC remove BIOS battery (it`s down to IDE cables), start it up wait a bit, then turn it off and turn it again on wait a bit again, turn it off place BIOS battery in to socket to be able save BIOS settings i mean battery is need to save them otherwise settings won`t be saved and Chassis will be broken. (Step 4) Turn PC on press del key after BIOS is load in open Power\Hardware monitoring\Chassis Intruder set to Disable, save settings exit. (Step5) If BIOS (PC won`t power up) it`s Chassis1 jumper fault, it`s need set to Default (Chassis signal, and GND(Ground)), it`s between SATA 2 and SATA1(Serial ATA connectors 7-pin it`s near and down to BIOS battery, the jumpers might be set to right side, after it`s completed repeat Step3 and Step4. CMOS is BIOS battery. If that all doesn't works Take BIOS clearing jumper in it`s clear state, near BIOS chip. Turn on PC with CMOS clear jumper turned on its work. Take beck jumper in its default state after that take bios chip out and CMOS battery out both them an two times restart PC after insert all beck if PC will be working all keyboard flashes once, after its in AC power.

I recently upraded my computer with an Asrock Penryn1600SLI-110dB motherboard with an Intel CORE 2 DUO E4600 processor. The symptoms are: When I tried to boot for the first time the cpu and case...


Hi,

If you have recently upgraded your motherboard and when you turn it on, there is no display. You could check the jumper setting of your motherboard.

http://download.asrock.com/manual/PENRYN1600SLI-110DB.pdf

Check this site for jumper settings. Download the manual. Go first to page 11 and find clear CMOS jumper. That will be number 17. Then go to page 24 for the correct jumper settings. Jumper should be on the pins 1 and 2. That's the default settings.

If the jumper is set already to 1 and 2. Clear the CMOS by putting the jumper on 2 and 3. It should be off when you are going to set the jumper. This is to make sure that the settings for your motherboard is set to its original settings.

If you are going to clear the CMOS settings, you will have turn the computer on after clearing it and then turn it off again. Put the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Now make sure that computer is totally off. Uplugged the computer just to make sure when you are doing this.

Note:
To test also the motherboard if it is working, do not connect the other pheriperals such as network card, sound card, and other cards that is not buit-in. Also drives such as Hard Drive and CDROM drives.

Check for beep codes. Short beeps tells you that the Video card is not inserted properly. Long beeps tells you that the memory card is not in place correctly.

Just remove the Video card or Memory card and then place it back again.

Computer should be off as well when doing this.

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Do you have both power connectors from the PSU hooked up?

You need both the large one near the ram, and the smaller square 4-pin one near the printer port
