Question about Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H (6938279104065) Motherboard

1 Answer

Repeated failure to load Windows 7 HP

Foxconn p9657aa-8ekrs2h - 3yrs old - original bios 1.06.53 - intel pentium e6600, 2x 1GB memory. Running XP. Passes w7 suitability test

Repeated failure in loading W 7 HP . Tried on a partition on existing HD . Tried new 1Tb HD, with existing HDs disconnected. Tried bootable copy of dvd. Tried three different optical drives. Tried disconnecting everything except KB, mouse, screen, HD and optical drive.Tried full mem test - no problems reported

Process generally fails with a freeze part way through file expansion stage - not always in the same place. Have twice got right through this stage, but never got through to full installation.

    Tried updating BIOS to latest release. Few sweaty hours when update produced errors, and restoring original BIOS also produced errors. Eventually tried loading the second latest version, which had a different flash exe bundled with it. This worked first time. W7 now installed, so this was the problem

Hi.
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.

Best of luck.

Does dual core processor support Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H mother board


The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)

I hope this helps.

Latest bios for HP Media Center PC?


sad how, how fixya AI guessing wrong??? pathetic, mess....
wow a very old media center, gen 2 of 14 or so.
HP does not support this quote
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC,its RETIRED now
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products


The BIOS does not do that!
what HP, it has full name and model.
the MMC controls this, and is very strict. (mem-managment controller)
the memory you are buying is no good. for YOUR PC.
this is so very common
and worse every year,
ever heard of Crucial or Kingston memory
they can fit up memory for you, it very complex.
not just DMM1, 2,3, but speed, min.
density rules.
chip count rules
chip voltage, 1.3. 1.5 or both or?
Total memory max allowed and PER SOCKET !
and even number of chips per side of stick , rule.
that worst was intel i5 old processors.
those are facts, and only the exact motherboard you have a
and what processor is there, (and if mmc is external to processor that)
matter.
? this?
M1070n

finding data on such and old box.
is not easy but google can dig up bits.
why not ask Kingston? for help,.

key facts are, (besides old)
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC
Intel Pentium 4 520 / 2.8 GHz
Intel 915P Express (my guess, mmc is inside here)
oops
  • 512 MB / 4 GB (max)
  • Memory Speed 400 MHz
  • Memory Specification Compliance
    PC3200
  • Features
    unbuffered
  • Configuration Features
    2 x 256 MB
  • Technology
    DDR SDRAM
  • Installed Size
    512 MB
  • Data Integrity Check
    non-ECC
  • 4 GB
  • Form Factor
    DIMM 184-pin
looks like 1GB max per slot , 1 to 4.
good luck finding SDRAM in 2017 that works.

why not find a newer box? (pc) say 2010 or newer.,
they will run better and can buy ram easy
vastly better.... even Goodwill has them for few bucks
or this.

Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 Motherboard will not post with pentium d cpu ,i have even updated with the lates bios flash,


Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56 No Version 4BFF1P40
Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
945G7MA-8EKRS2 945G7MA-8EKRS2H
Update at your own risk..
hope this helps, thanks for posting.
