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!

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:

MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum NOT Posting + No beep + No display


try to test the CPU on another machine ...

or at least remove it and reinsert it.

But if u say that u reseted the BIOS an it still not doing the post, it just could be that the motherboard is out !

It can also be the PSU as u say, but i doubd it ! Try to remove all hard drives, cdroms, etc... to limit the power usage... and see if it passes the post.

U can also try to remove the motherboard from the computer case and put it on an insolating surface and than try to boot (sometimes shorts appeare betwen the motherbord- case - psu)

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!
Mike

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.
