The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel
Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte
Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56No Version4BFF1P40 Have you tried installing the no version bios?In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference. 945G7MA-8EKRS2945G7MA-8EKRS2H Update at your own risk.. hope this helps, thanks for posting.
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.
You're Foxconn board uses the Award bios. The long beeps you are hearing are telling you there is a problem with you're memory. You're pic does not look like the Foxconn P9657AB-8EKRS2H MB as shown in the user manual. Found on This link. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-us0000297 The pic on Foxconn's site does but not the manual listed. The motherboard uses four 240-pin slots with 1.8V for DDR2 memory only. (Question? Did you're ECS MB use DDR2 memory)? If you have more than 1 DIMM installed remove all but 1. Move the DIMM into the closest slot next to the CPU. Boot the PC & check for beeps. If still presant move the DIMM to the next slot & try again. Continue this through all four slots. Than try another DIMM. If the mother board continues to beep as mentioned than call Foxconn. (There is a bios update mentioned below for memory). The CPU may come into question. (It’s revision). You may have to call Foxconn for this information. (580-272-0035). They do not place this information in their user manual. Most users have to call. The rev of the CPU may conflick with the memory causing you to receive the bios beeps. (I have had to return 2 boards for this reason). I picked an Asus board over Foxconn. I have come across this with Foxconn motherboards these past two years. Suggest you update you’re bios. Foxconn has a revision dated, 3-28-2008 for memory before you call. After bios update test the memory again for beeps. Still there? Return the board is my suggestion. It’s a guess that the red led will go away after the memory issue has been addressed. Normally there is a green led on most motherboards. This means standby. The board has power connected. I could not find any reference in the user manual * .pdf, for R450. Good Luck ninjo61! Mike
Hi, I run a foxconn mobo myself and yes its a great board. But dont go to the foxconn site looking for downloads. instead go to the VIA site they make the chips and you will get more sense there. If all else fails Foxconn do have a "Contact us " link on their home page. This will give you the company email address and you could request directions to the update site there, the only trouble is it could take weeks to get a response.
