3 AGP pins smashed down

Is there any way I can repair 3 AGP Motherboard connector pins smashed down?

  • BS UCLA Electrical Engineering

    Thanks for the help, I managed to get the 3 pins up (took an hour of surgery) but then cover the pins with a tin sheet of plastic that I could pull out after carefully inserting the AGP card. Not sure if it was worth the effort, but it worked! I will never install a card so carelessly as I did again. I have finstalled literally thousands of cards with no problems but have been getting more and more careless. Thanks for the insight to watch for re-smashing. Take Care!

Not very likely even if you manage to pull the up and flatting them .
they will crumble again when inserting a card.

My motherboard has fried: Albatron KM18G Pro 2003. It no longer seems to be available. For the computer to be exactly as it was before disaster struck, do I need exactly the same motherboard?


Well you do not need exactly the same motherboard. You need a motherboard that has the exact CPU socket, DDR slots and AGP or PCI slot.
Here are the specifications for the motherboard: Processor
- AMD Athlon/Athlon XP/AthlonXP Barton/Duron Processor
- FSB 200/266/333MHz
Chipset
- North Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 IGP
- South Bridge: NVIDIA nForce2 MCP
- I / O Chip : Winbond W83627HF
Memory
- 3 DDR Sockets:
-
DDR200 to 400 non-ECC DDR SDRAM up to 3GB (Single Channel) or up to 2GB (Dual Channel)
Expansion Slots
- 1 x AGP 8X/4X slot (1.5V Only)
- 3 x PCI slots (PCI 2.2 compliant)
IDE Connectors 2 ATA133 channels (up to 4 ATA 133 IDE Devices)
Onboard I/O Connectors
- 1x Floppy Connector
- 2x USB 2.0/1.1 header (4 ports USB cable optional)
- 1x CD_IN header
- 1x COM Port header
- 1x S/PDIF in/out header (S/PDIF in/out cable optional)
- 1x CPU fan header with fan rotation detection function
- 1x System fan headers with fan rotation detection function
- 2x 5 pin system panel header (Intel spec)
- 1x 3 pin Power LED header
- 1x 4 pin Speaker header
- 1x Front audio header (Intel spec)
- 1x Case Open detection header
- 1x Wake on LAN
- 1x 4 pin TV-Out header

So you have to buy a motherboard that has Socket A, that support DDR I memories and has an AGP slot (for the video card).

If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa.

Be sure you have the ATX_12V 4-pin connector pluggedin to the mobo. This supplies the power to the processor.

Be sure your using compatible memory.

Try resetting the CMOS, CLR_CMOS jumper, short pins 1-2 to clear CMOS and short pins 2-3 for normal operation.

You may be having a problem with the on-board video adapter. If you have an AGP video card, try installing it and see if it works.

Hope one of these helps you.

What video card can I upgrade to MSI Part No: MS-6566E-010


Here's the best recommendation I can give you:

Your motherboard supports both AGP and PCI. Because of the fact that you have AGP, you could go that route for a video card. If you look at this link, you'll see different types of video cards that will work with the AGP slot. The other thing to consider is the output. If you don't have a monitor that supports DVI (white wide connector with 24 pins) then your choices are narrowed to VGA (blue 15 pin connector. First let's look at the AGP cards:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318

You'll notice that some have more memory than others. The ones with more memory are better with respects to being able to process more video within their own GPU(graphics processing unit)
Some of the cards have DVI and VGA video out. Some of the cards have only DVI out. Not to worry because most cards have a DVI to VGA adapter. It won't run in true DVI output, but that's okay. If you have a DVI monitor, then you're in luck!

PCI - PCI cards are getting more rare to find since the newer technology is all PCIe or PCI-x, which your motherboard does not support, so your choices will be more limited. You can look at some options here:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319&name=PCI-Video-Cards&
Again, any of these will work too. It's going to come down to basically preference. AGP is just as good in MY opinion as PCI. Things to consider when buy the new card are:
1) Reputation of vendor/manufacturer
2) Price
3) Warranty
4) How good is their support is you have an issue (Of course you always have us here at FixYa)

I would be glad to give you a yeah or nay once you narrow it down. Also, if you like, you can read a little bit more about DVI here: http://www.connectworld.net/cis/digital-monitors.html

Monitors that support DVI are more affordable and offer superior output resolution as opposed to VGA. I hope I've helped and if you need any clarification, just add a comment and I will be glad to respond.
Best Regards...Jerry

Since I have been unable to find a User Manual for a Chaintech 9BJA motherboard, does anyone know where I can find the pin layout for the 9x2 Front Panel Connector to connect the case front panel...


I found the Motherboard Manual for it. It comes as a Zip file.
At first my zip extractor seemed to have problems with it. Unzipped it anyway.
Comes as 8 small files. (Sheesh!)
I'll give you the link to the download website. I'll also tell you how to connect up the Front Panel header, just in case you have problems unzipping the files like I did!

Download website for the Motherboard Manual for the Chaintech 9JBA.

http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/Archive/Chaintech/manuals/index.html
Scroll down the list on the left. In blue it's -> 9jba0 <- (No, I don't know what the zero is for)
Takes you to another page. Under -> Filename, click on -> 9jba0.exe <- It's 4624KB in size.
(That's about 4.6MB's. Not very big)

It will ask "Do you want to save this file?" Click on Save.
Then the Extraction Wizard will come up. Click on unzip.

If you don't have your downloads going to your My Documents folder, it will pop up these 8 files on your desktop. They're PDF files, and you have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer, so it will open these files.

Now, in case you can't download these.

Not to offend, but the manual is a piece of junk. Good thing I've got years of experience with computer motherboards, and reading crappy motherboard manuals.
Hardware setup is in file -> 9bja0-2.pdf (By the way. You can enter the CMOS Setup utility by pressing the Delete key, right after the Chaintech 'splash screen'. { Logo screen)

I am looking at file -> 9bja0-1.pdf now.
I had to expand the PDF file by 800% to see the Front Panel Header. IT IS ->16 pins. 2 x 8

Orient the motherboard, so we're on the 'same page'. Processor is up towards the top, expansion slots, (PCI) are to the left. The Front Panel header is down to the very bottom right corner.
It has -> FTP under it. To the left of it is another header. It has Smark Card under it. (No I didn't misspell it. That's what the mobo manual states) Do Not connect anything to the pins in the Smark Card area.

The Front panel header going lengthwise, there are 7 pins on top, 8 on bottom. Across the top there are 3 pins, NO pin, then 4 more pins.

Pin 1 is on the Bottom all the way to the Left. It doesn't state if it goes Pin 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15,
for the Bottom row of pins, or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

I'm going to number the pins across the Top as Pins, 2, 4, 6, NO Pin, 10, 12, 14, and 16.
Bottom row of pins is Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15.

Top Row
Pins 2, 4, and 6 are for the Power On LED light. The Positive attaches to Pin 2.

There is No Pin 8.
Pins 10 and 12 are for the Green Power switch. Suggest you DON'T connect anything here.

Pins 14 and 16 are for the Override Power Button. Suggest you DON'T connect anything here.

Bottom Row
Pins 1, 3, 5, and 7 are for the internal speaker. Pin 1 is for the Positive connection.

Pins 9 and 11 are for the Power On switch.

Pins 13, and 15 are for the HarDDrive activity light. Pin 13 is for the Positive wire.





More info:
This Chaintech motherboard uses Pentium 4 processors, that use a Socket 478. The processor FSB is 400MHz. (You can't use P4's with a 533MHz FSB, nor ones that use a 800MHz FSB. Go to Wikipedia.org
In Wikipedia's search bar, type -> List of Intel Pentium 4 Microprocessors <-
Look through it, and you'll see P4's that use the Socket 478, and have a 400MHz Front Side Bus)

Has the Intel i845 Northbridge chip, and the ICH2 Southbridge chip. This is the 'motherboard chipset'.
Actual name is Northbridge/Southbridge chipset.

Has 3 ram slots. Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram is 3GB. Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB. Uses PC133 ram. (SDR Sdram. Commonly just known as Sdram. ALL ram from Single Data Rate Sdram up to DDR3 Sdram, IS Sdram. That's why just stating just ->Sdram is a misnomer!)
Has to be Low Density ram, and Non-ECC.

The AGP graphics slot is a Universal AGP slot. BUT, it only uses AGP 2X or AGP 4X graphics cards.
They must be able to turn down to 1.5 volts. Using a 3.3 volt AGP graphics card, will result in System Boot up failure, malfunction, etc.

Uses IDE harddrives. (IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA)
It's an ATX form factor motherboard.

Problem


there are many things that can cause this, first obvious causes would be bad ram, dead mainboard or hard drive.. i say dead motherboard due to the fact you say there is no post beep on startup, easy way to tell, remove all the ram, and turn it on, if it squeels at you, you know the motherboard still at least is somewhat operational, next thing try replacing the ram.
