Biostar M4M70-M4 mounting question

Hi , Mother board is biostar P4M80-M4. this is not a problem but just an inquiry, I have an e-machine case. There are 4 stand-offs in the case. the other mounts are raised mounds whihc the mother board attaches, no stand-offs are necessary. I had shorted one mother board either due to a bad power supply or the does the raised mounts make a difference for this model of motherboard.
thanks
Joe

Of course it could make a difference. Any contact between an active voltage on a motherboard and the metal of the case will fry the motherboard and possibly the P/S. There are different sizes of standoffs to fit different cases and motherboards. Sometimes if a person doesn't use a sufficient number of standoffs, one corner or another of the motherboard can be inadvertently bent toward the case ground causing a short. Even the raised mounds you speak of need standoffs of some type if the surface of the raised mound encrouches upon a surface of the motherboard that has voltage on it.

After flash BIOS DMI Update fails ?


If you are able to boot into Windows, don't try it again. If you are not able to, try to reflash it. If that fails, contact the tech support for the bios and see if they have any suggestions, sadly I doubt they will. You may end up having to replace the mother board.

Just replaced my Biostar P4M80-M4 mother board with a new one and I now have no screen. Power supply on, fans running, appears all is well but no screen?


Try replace the Memory module (DDR2 RAM) with new ones.That's should fix it!!

If still won't come out, replace the power supply unit.
