I had this mother board in my computer then it had problems. out of no where my screen would go black and my computer would shut off or restart. so i took it out of the case it was in and bought a new case power supply etc. all new parts. now i want to try hooking this motherboard back up and see if it still has the same problems as before. it is a biostar m7viz ver8.0. that is what is says on the motherboard itself. on the onboard printer plug thingy has a different sycker of numbers. if that matters please let me know. i do not know much about bulding computers but i can follow directions on hooking one back up and if i have to i can get my cousin to actually program it but i would like to see what i can do. thanks, wendy
Ok so from what I have read you want to rebuild your computer by putting in the old mobo back in? If that isn't what's going on then I am sorry this won't help much. http://www.wikihow.com/Install-a-Motherboard There are some little Brass stubs that come with most cases. They have a threaded pole on one side and a threaded hoel on the other. You need to make sure that they are lined up with the screw holes on the motherboard. ONLY USE AS MANY LITTLE BRASS THINGS AS THERE ARE SCREW HOLES IN YOUR MOBO. These act as grounds for the mobo. AND DO NOT PLUG IN THE POWER TO THE MOTHERBOARD UNTIL YOU HAVE SECURED ALL OF THE SCREWS INTO TEH BRASS NUBS. IF YOU DO PLUG IT IN AND TURN IT ON BEFORE THEN IT WILL FRY THE MOTHER BOARD. Sorry about the capslock but I really need to stress those points. Hope that helps

The mother board name would be helpful. The name of the computer also.
A quite a few things can be the problem here. The mother board could be bad with something wrong on it. The memory should be checked. Possible problem or defective CPU can also cause this kind of problem. Not to be overlooked would be a possible problem with one of the cards. So... I would recommend (with power off and cord removed from power supply) for you to remove all cards. Try by turning on the computer. If at this point you get no power as you did at the beginning, then you need to check the CPU by either using another one (if possible) or have a friend try the cpu in another computer. If that does not work, then the problem is more than likely in the mother board. At this point if the motherboard is not good (should be checked by another person or friend) , also do not overlook the power supply.
Next... Remove all drive connections such as cdrom, hard drives and floppy. Turn on the computer and see if you can get the bios to come up...if it does, set the bios to default settings. Next put each drive in one by one and then turn on the computer after each one is connected. If you are still able to start the computer, then put in the cards one by one and try the computer again after each one is put in the slot it came from. This is the process of elimination to see which part is at fault.
my goodness.. you have spent a lot in your computer i think.. i dont think changing mother board and installing a new vedio card will solve this problem. as u have said that u have installed a new card make sure that you are giving the connections of your monitor to the gforce card and not to the mother board again.
if connection for monitor is going for gforce properly your RAM is the problem. as per your configuration its single 512mb ram. i would advice you to go and get another DDR RAM(same 512 prefrably) from any of your friend and put it in you mother board in by removing the normal RAM you had. this will work for sure i think. if this is not working dont rate me in-approtiate. i just triend my best. sorry and tahnks.. good luck
remove ur power supply socket from the mother board short the pin green and black in the connector if the smps start no problen with the power supply then the problems lies with ur mother board wiring or fault in your mother board if your mother board has secondry power fix it correctly to mother board sock et with has 4 pin if its not working cousult a chiplel engineer the fault lies in the power supply of the motherboard
