I want to install a new motherboard what should i buy


Your motherboard is the main component to your computer, so if you're thinking of re-using your RAM and CPU, you'll have to make sure you get a motherboard with the same RAM type (ex. if you have DDR2 RAM, you'll have to get a DDR2 motherboard) and the same CPU socket. My recommendation is that you find a motherboard that fits inside your tower, and buy a processor and RAM that is compatible with your new motherboard. If your hard drives are SATA connections, you should be able to reuse those on a new motherboard, but if they are IDE (big, flat wire) then you'll need to made sure the new board can accommodate your IDE hard drives. CD ROMs are also mainly SATA now, so if you have an IDE CD rom drive and IDE hard drives, it will be difficult to find a NEW motherboard with more than one IDE connection, meaning you'll have to change jumper settings, or simply buy a SATA CD-rom drive.
As far as software goes, you'll most likely have to reinstall your operating system if the upgrade is a substantial one. Video card is another thing to consider. Your motherboard might be using the older AGP technology, whereas new motherboards are useing PCIe connections. So to sum it up, when you upgrade your motherboard, it affects a lot of other hardware, but if you simply swap your motherboard with something compatible with the rest of your hardware, it isn't really an upgrade.

I have a server mother board I can get it to past post and it does not display anything when I turn it on this is the 4th motherboard and 3rd processor also got a new stick of ram and still same problem....


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
or it might be your graphics card make sure its securely seated and there is no dust built up
on and around the graphics card hope this helps

I added 2x4G mem to the Asus M4N98, but the computer doesn't see it. Help?


Here is the memory spec for your board

4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel memory architecture
*AMD AM3 100 and 200 series CPU support up to DDR3 1066MHz
**Due to OS limitation, when installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended.
***Refer to www.asus.com or the user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists)

Do like this, start the installation as you did before, when your pc restarts, get in to bios again and change the first boot from cd/dvd to the HDD. That will solve your instalation problem:)

Good luck to you

Motherboard problem


Hi Conor, every SATA drive is a master drive. With that in mind you're SATA must have windows installed on it. Please disconnect the data cable & power cable's from the IDE drives.
(Do not reconnect either IDE untill you have finished).
Install windows on the SATA drive. Install all the needed drivers, than update windows. When finished Check the pin setting on the IDE drives. Set one as the "master with a slave" & the other as the slave. Than you can add both into the system. If you had windows on one of the IDE's just delete the root files on that drive so it does not conflict with the new windows on the SATA drive. Go in the bios make sure you have the SATA drive as the boot drive & not either of the IDE drives. If the system still shuts down after all this, try replacing the data cable for the IDE drives (Both should be on the same data cable). Swap the power connector from the CD-ROM drive to the IDE.
Next, if you're system still shuts down after adding either of the IDE drives, than swap the ports. Connect the CD-ROM to the primary IDE port on the board & the IDE hard drive to the IDE slave port. (This is for testing only). Double check all power connections from the power supply to the motherboard. Leave the case opened. Look at the board when booted. Watch for the the case LED's lighting up & flashing cr-rom's LED flashes, look at the CPU fan. Make sure all fan's are running & listen for the drives running.
Let me know if anything changed or not. Post any thing odd or if any thing did or didn't work & I'll go from there. Everything is a test & error soulation. One change at a time.

Pc starts up and shuts down repeatedly and no video


First be sure that the ram (ecc)you have purchased is compatible with your motherboard and that it will take a total of 4 gig,make sure you earth yourself out on the case before going inside the pc (static electricity can damage electronic components)check that you have not accidentally loosened any data or power cables, check cpu & fan is seated correctly and working : then

  • put back the old ram and try booting up,(if still no good),
  • put things back to the way it was before the changes,
  • make sure everything is working as before (refer to the above)
  • trying the new ram, if ok
  • change cpu
  • this will identify if it is the ram the cpu, or some other problem
it is a good idea when upgrading the pc to do one thing at a time so that it is easier to identify any problems that crop up.

let me know how you get on
good luck

Turns on, then shuts down before anything shows on monitor


So its a Foxconn Mb. Few things I can suggest. I do hope you installed the cpu before installing the motherboard & didn't forget to add thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink. One might say that you might have a short between the Mb and the case! Same problem two boards.... Did you connect the 4-pin ATX12V cable into the board which is loacted to the left of the cpu & up close to the edge of the Mb. Goto this link and follow the testing of the board.: http://www.machspeed.com/tech/isolate.htm

Silly question perhaps...


Ooh! That motherboard uses RIMMs, not regular DDR memory. And you'll need a matched pair to get it to fire up and permit access to the BIOS. Checking eBay I see you can get a pair of 256 MB modules for less than $10, so your curiosity won't cost you too much.
