Check in all the connections and chek in the status of the dics if you feel is connected properly, in device manager.
at the end recheck all the connections and just press the disk so as to confirm the correct connectivity

My motherboard K8 Trinton ga-k8nsc-939 soket retention plate snapped the cpu is now loose, please advise on how to repair this this prolem.


Hello boraz

By retention plate do you mean the handle that locks the CPU in place.?
if that is the problem there you can not replace it HOWEVER you can still use the motherboard.

note that the CPU socket is a two section structure on top of each other. after inserting the processor you can slide the two section together to hold the CPU. you have to glue the two section together to make it stay in place.
the draw back is that you probably will not be able to upgrade the CPU in future because of the glue.

hope this was helpful.
good luck

Up-grade


you *might* be able to find a better video card, or more ram, or even a faster cpu for $20 on ebay, but a computer that old is more in need of replacement.

Computer won't boot-up


hi, is the ide-ata enabled in the bios? do you have sata? and is it enabled?also did you put thermal compound on the cpu' s heatsink when you put it back on the cpu? the 2 second on thing sounds like over-heating,do check the bios first. alot of motherboards have a thermal shutdown, so if the fan or compound failed, it would quikly shut off. as for the channels not working-you can try your primary drive, and see if it boots. but first see if it is on in the bios. check and replace the battery on the motherboard. post again if you need help good luck! hope this is helpful.

FOR IBM MOTHERBOARD REV 1.6


I believe the fastest CPU you can install in that motherboard is a Athlon XP 3200+ (2.2GHZ) socket 7 CPU.

That board uses eaither DDR 1 or SD-RAM and is definatly not compatible with DDR2 which uses a different connector on the motherboard (more pins)

Changeing a cpu is a simple process.

First step, remove the cables and open the case.
locate the cpu - heatsink

it debends on what kind of heatsink it has, simply turn the lever
or use a screwdriver to unhook the metal connector. If you don't have enought room you might need to remove the powersupply first.

handle the cpu with care, ones the heatsink is removed you can
pull up the lever next to the cpu to unlock it

now you can remove the cpu with your fingers by the edges.

place it in a safe location, and go ahead install the new cpu.
optionally apply some thermalpaste and attach the heatsink
and the power connector for the heatsink fan.

you are done.
