915PL-A2: no post, no beep, no keyboard lights

Starting a new build: no case speaker beep, no lights on keyboard. Case fan and PSU fan spin. PC speaker emits a tiny click on power-on, and nothing ever shows on the monitor. Please help.

You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.

Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
Good luck!

New build with this mono and I'm not getting it to post, no beep. i do not have a chassis speaker plugged into the mobo. should i be hearing a beep if hooked up correctly? sorry, first build, complete


I don't know too much about this. Here are some suggestions:

You don't need a hard disk connected to get the system to POST.
It would be helpful to have a m/b or chassis speaker connected to help with diagnosing problems.
Have you connected up the 20/24 main power connector (I guess you have), but have you also connected up the separate CPU power connector (8 pin on this one I think) ?
Have you connected the power switch properly (or otherwise ensured that the PSU is working properly) ?
Have you made the proper stand-off arrangements for the m/b ? (some m/bs need either conducting or insulating stand-offs to isolate the m/b from the case except at the proper places - like by the connectors)
Have you checked your CMOS battery is in place ?
CPU PnP cap removed, and CPU inserted in the correct orientation ?
It's unlikely to be memory (it would beep - ensure your (internal) speaker is connected - you may need to connect the 'Chassis Speaker Header')...but try with only one DIMM inserted in A1 slot nearest the CPU. (I think your m/b has the option of a beep-on-boot feature)
Check all the jumpers are connected/NC as appropriate.
Does your case have a CASE OPEN warning feature ? (I guess that even if it does you have connected it appropriately because you have power).
I can't find a 'troubleshooting section in the ASRock manual, nor anything what beep codes (or lack thereof) mean.
Finally, if I have got this right you m/b has an 8-pin ATX/CPU connection socket, but the Silverstone PSU which comes with your case has only a 4 pin ATX/12V connector...ensure that you have connected the appropriate 4 pins !
Sorry I have just provided a bit of a random check list. You may have to (if you haven't already) just take it all apart and reassemble it to find that it works.
When you get it working, please let us know what the problem was/and how you fixed it.

Cdc-m computer will not come on the on light works case fans comes on but that is all


Do you mean that your computer does not turn on just casing light lit on and Fan runs only? What means new, memory and case?

If just lights on, fan runs but no image on monitor or blank screen, you should hear some kind of sound form inside of the CPU casing. This is called beep code. If you hear continuous beep or 3 same beep with same length, it means your motherboard is missing RAM, just connect it properly. If does not work or stop try a good RAM installing to see the result and plug your this RAM to a working machine that have the same kind of RAM.
If you hear one long beep with two short beep After PC switching on, or Two long beep with one short beep following - that means your Graphics card is not connected properly, or damaged or miss matching. If you do not have any beep code after switching on the machine, your motherboard may not have build in emergency speaker. Try to clear this things first. Please mention details of your computer with model number of your motherboard. Let me know updates.

On start up fan runs, no beeps, black screen, no response from keyboard & mouse. Unplugged everything for 30 minutes, then tried again, start up began then went to black screen, no keyboard, no m


in your case, there might be some problem with the main board.
usually no beeps will related to the processor error / mainboard error / ram error / PSU error

to check the processor : try to exchange the processor with the same type.

to check the Memory: try use rubber eraser to clean the cooper plate of the memory. then plugged it again.

in case if there is a power supply error, then try to exchange the power supply using other PC PSU.

if all steps above are checked, the problem might be at the mainboard. in that case, replacement will be the best option.

What does it mean when the red alarm lite is flashing?


As for the red light on the motherboard, thats just there to let you know that the power cord is plugged in and the PSU switch is ON. (It is in the manual somewhere, just in small type)

When you press the power button, does anything happen? Do the fans spin for a second then stop? Do you get any POST codes? Have you tried with the board out of the case and only the video card/RAM/CPU plugged in?

Unless you are hearing beeps from the PC-speaker there should be no real danger i recon.

Refer to this guide if you are hearing beeps and take the nesessary measures:

Shutdown at Windows Log-in or Desktop


Hi kpspero, I gather you can get into you're bios? Once there go to hardware monitor (page 26 in you're manual, which should allow you to watch the motherboard temp & CPU temp. You're CPU may be overheating. (Keep the case closed when checking this). Normal operation. Did you add thermal grease between the CPU & heatsink? Go to page 4 & 5 of you're manual. Check that you have connected number 21, Auxiliary 4-pin power connector.
Two more thoughts. If everything is connected correctly & you're system is not over heating, try updating the bios. Click on this link which will take you to ECS's web site for you're board.
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=533&DetailName=Bios&MenuID=44&LanID=0
After flashing the bios, re-check you're bios settings. There are many updates for the 915PL-A2 MB & for windows. Did you hear any beeps from the PC during boot up? Did you connect the motherboard speaker? If you do not have a motherboard speaker you can get one from this site:
http://store.cwc-group.com/casp.html Lastly, since you can get to you're desktop, from time to time. Is this a fresh install of windows XP? Have you installed windows more than once? If you said yes to either. Download the hard drives manufactures bootable floppy disk setup software/tools/utilities & use that floppy to format the hard drive & setup the drive. Do not use windows to perform the format. Install ECS's CD software/drivers after windows has been installed.
If you're system continues to has this shut down problem, post back & I'll go from there.

Good Luck!

My first PC build....gone horribly wrong =(


Hi,

Please CLICK HERE for more info on your power supply.
My guess is that your power supply is dead. If the fan doesn't spin it may be that the fan died first and the PSU overheated.
Now, if you are fortunate nothing else got damaged. You can remove the PSU (the mounting screws are on the back of the case, there should be four) and buy a new one at your friendly local computer parts store. Get one rated for at least as much power as the old one. We can give you a hand on this if you tell us what the lable on the side of the PSU says.
I should caution you that there is a chance that when the PSU went it damaged other parts of your system.

Goodluck..

New computer won't POST


have you tried different memory as no matter what the board says they don't like some memory .
also take the board out of the case and connect pwr supply.
cpu and fan ,video card , and 1 memory stick

no cables ,keyboard ,mouse or drives connected.
this is called bread boarding.
reset the bios jumper, then put jumper back.
and power up.

had a similar problem with a box i built. Your power supply has two connectors. One long one and a 4 pin connector. Make sure that four pin connector is connected.
