Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Fried Motherboard I own a Compaq SR1817CL desktop. I purchased this about 1 1/2 yrs ago. One day all is well the next day all I got was a blinking cursor on a blank screen. I thought it was the power supply box but after replacing that I still had the same problem. My daughter has a few "geek" friends but they believe it is the motherboard. As usual warranty has expired. I run Office Pro and Quickbooks Pro simultanieously alot of the time. What would be a good replacement board? The hard drive has a usb type(?) connector (not the pin type)

    Before you go the motherboard route, what leads them to believe it is your motherboard and not something like a hard drive issue? Have any of the "geek" friends checked your computer to make sure it is not anything other than the motherboard?

If you are sure the entire thing is fried, and you have to be sure, i would reccommend a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3R motherboard, if your processor is an intel, it does down to pentium d, and ddr2 ram. i bought one of these and i can still upgrade to core 2 quad if i wanted. (does not support AMD processors,or ddr1 ram). will work for a long time, 5 year warranty at some places

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.

there are several possibilities. 1. replace the ram, make sure that its a good working ram module. 2. review all your work from system board to power supply. 3. try running it temporarily without the cmos battery. 4. check your monitor. 5. check your VGA. 6. retry and retry.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.
