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.

Biostar ZX-945GCLM; Ver: 1.21. I have lost my mother board driver. Plz help me...........


Hi,
it seems like your motherboard model is not officialy supported anymore, since your specific model doesn't come up anywhere on the Biostar site. You should try these drivers and see if they work: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/driver.php?S_ID=298 , this model seems to share almost all of the components of your motherboard.
Hope it helped,
Franz

Computer wont boot up


If you have one of those generic motherboards with Intel chipset, socket 478, 2 or 3 PCI slots in a mini ATX form so, don't waste your time and buy a new one. Some time ago I replaced it with a cheap Biostar P4M80-M4 and is much better.

Could not fiond a driver for biostar mother board model p4m89-m7b


Here is a link to the BIOSTAR Driver Downloads

http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=158

This is a specific Motherboard close to the Model NO. You gave me, however there were two other possibilities, so if that doesn't work, then go here and find the motherboard that matches yours.

You can get this BIOS here(see link), but I wouldn't advise flashing the BIOS unless you know what you're doing.

Wiring a P4M80-M4 mother board


You can download the manual for the motherboard here, just click on the "manual" link:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

This will list the front panel connections, which are 2 pins. Each of the jumpers, what you are calling clips, will connect two of the pins. Most cases have the jumpers labeled, i.e. power, reset, etc. But if they are not, it is usually: red/white = HDD led; green/white = power led; red/black = speaker; black/green = power switch; and black/white = reset. But your case may use a different wiring spec, but should list somewhere which wire is for which function.
