    I do have a speaker connected and hear nothing. I took my machine to another tech. Pulled the cpu and found at least 2 bent pins in the cpu socket. Says that this is the problem. Also suggested that the problem might have fried my cpu.

    What do I do next?

  • richcook Apr 24, 2010

    Everything was installed properly. I don't have another board to try the cpu in, but this brand new biostar board obviously has a problem. It's not going to work with bent pins. How do I get a replacement

  • richcook Apr 24, 2010

    I did not bend the pins. I will be contacting Tiger Direct. This has to have been a manufacturers problem. I've been building and repairing computers for 12 years, now, and have never had a problem.

Hello and welcome to FixYa.
First, do you have the small speaker connected to the motherboard inside the case? Do you hear any beeping?

Can you get such a speaker and do you know what im talking about?

Also the brand and model of the board and details about all the components that you have connected to it would be helpful to me.

    Try the cpu on another board or another cpu on this board, make sure you put it on the right way.

    it is possible since you don't hear anything.

  • Ekse Apr 24, 2010

    Talk to your dealer. this probably does not go into warranty, they will probably sell you a new board, you may also have to get a new cpu is this one was fried.

    The thing is, this is not a manufacturing fault, you must have bent the pins somehow or something.

  • Ekse Apr 24, 2010

    that would be very rare. They do test the boards at the manufacturing facilities that they work before they are sold out as brand new with warranties.

    Frankly, the pins must have been bent while installing the cpu, possibly the wrong way. I don't see it being a manufacturing defect.

    But please do contact them and sort it out, I can't sort this out for you.

PC runs for about 10 seconds then powers off

A) The first thing to check is the Power Supply.

Cannot depend on LED's lighting, or fans spinning; to include the Power Supply fan.

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, will have enough power to light those simpy LED's, and maybe spin fans; but NOT enough power to turn the Processor (CPU) on.

1) If ALL of those LED's (Light Emitting Diode), were on at once; they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses about 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical CPU (Processor) can use 51 to 130 Watts. Just depends on what Processor it is.

(Not trying to slam your motherboard Chris, but $219 bucks?
You couldn't GIVE me that motherboard..........jus sayin')

Uses the Intel 865G motherboard chipset,

Scroll down a little

Can use Processors that need Up To 115 Watts. (Maybe higher)

Did you test the 3 Main voltage power rails?
3.3 Volts (DC), 5 Volts (DC), and 12 Volts (DC)
What were the voltages?

Or did you use a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply?
How do you know it's good?

Moving on..........

B) I suppose an inspection of the Electrolytic Capacitors, should really be first. It is a visual inspection,

However, you have replaced the motherboard. So we in good faith, have to assume the motherboard is good........(Or do we?)

This would lead to the Thermal Paste, on top of the CPU (Processor), has dried out.

Top of CPU, and bottom of finned Heatsink needs to be THOROUGHLY cleaned, and fresh, new Thermal Paste applied.

C) No? Power Supply has been deemed to be good?
Processor and bottom of Heatsink cleaned, fresh new Thermal Paste applied?

(4-pin ATX +12 Volt wire plugged into motherboard?
Power for the Processor, )

......The motherboard is mounted to a Support Plate.
The Support Plate can be a separate sheet of metal, or an integral part of the motherboard.

Mounting the motherboard to the Support Plate, is accomplished with either plastic Spacers, or metal Standoff's.

IF, a Standoff is NOT mounted to a motherboard mounting hole, and is just standing out there; there is a good chance it will touch one of the exposed solder joints, on the bottom of the motherboard; and short the motherboard out.

Removing the 'offending' Standoff, or moving to an open motherboard mounting hole; may result in the motherboard working again.

Along with the Standoff's are Fiber Washers.
Rule of thumb is;

Motherboard mounting hole has metal ring around it? No fiber washers are used.
Motherboard mounting hole does NOT have a metal ring around it?
Fiber washer is used on both sides of motherboard mounting hole.

Let's consult the Intel D865BGF Product Guide,

Doesn't say.
Statement is, "Refer to your chassis manual for instructions on installing and removing the desktop board."

Motherboard may get it's ground, from those metal ringed motherboard mounting holes. IF PRESENT.

D) Motherboard is bad.
Electrolytic Capacitors are bad. If they do not show outward signs of failure, the Electrolytic Paste inside could be dried up. Would show no outward signs of failure.

Computer design engineers know this. They know the Electrolytic Paste inside is a chemical, and has a chemical reaction.
The chemical breaks down over time.

This is why computer design engineers use Electrolytic Capacitors, that are rated at TWICE of what is needed.
When the capacitor breaks down to 50 percent good, it is still 100 percent good for the application.

Now...................New/Old Stock, or not; that mobo is OLD.

E) Processor (CPU)
Very rarely one goes out. Overclocking, and getting it too hot?
Oh yeah. Bye-bye CPU.

There is one other way, though.........

A CPU (Processor) is the MOST, susceptible hardware component to Static shock.

If whoever has been handling it has not followed Anti-Static Procedures, drill a hole through it, and put a chain through the hole.
See? You've got a snazzy(?) necklace......

Motherboard can be used for a Frisbee, too.

F) Are you running a graphics card?
Power Supply has enough power for it, and the rest of the computer system?
Motherboard, Ram Memory, Case fans, CPU fan, optical drives (CD/DVD drive), and Harddrive/s.

G) IF, the graphics card requires a power cable, does your Power Supply have the necessary power cable?

Cpu didnot run ,i cant find any signel on my cpu every thing is ok but there is a problems in motherboard what should i do ?

A) With great tact and diplomacy;
Do not refer to a Personal Computer as a CPU.

CPU = Central Processing Unit.
Another term is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
CPU = Processor

B) Because of the method you used to refer to the Computer, I do not know if you're talking about; the PROCESSOR did not start, or the Computer.

C) If I we are to believe this is a reference to the Computer;

1) Check the Power Supply voltages,
2) Substitute the Power Supply; with a KNOWN to be working, Compatible power supply, for a temporary test unit.

A) If ALL the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, will not have enough power to turn the Processor on.

However I am still confused by the statements;
1) "CPU did not run"

Does this mean the COMPUTER did NOT turn on, which implies the Power Supply did not turn on;


Does this mean LED lights came on, fans may be spinning, but Windows does not load?

2) "I can't find any signal on my Computer........"
Signal = Voltage.

To see if there were voltages going through the motherboard, you wouldn't be posting on here. You would know how to take a multimeter, and test them.

Means to me you see No Signal on the monitor.

D) Are you FOLLOWING Anti-Static Procedures?

E) Power Supply voltages prove to be good, or you are using a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply?

Disconnect EVERYTHING from the motherboard.

NO cables to the motherboard, EXCEPT the 24-pin ATX main power cable,

[NOTE* Color of connector does NOT matter ]

,and the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

Disconnect the data cable AT THE motherboard, for the Harddrive, and optical drive/s. (CD/DVD drive)
Disconnect the power cables to them also.

Disconnect ANY USB front panel cables.

LEAVE processor fan wire connected to motherboard.

You want the Processor, finned Heatsink sitting on it, and the Processor fan.
ONE stick of Ram Memory in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

Leave graphics card in, IF used; or monitor is connected to the VGA port on the motherboard. (D-Sub connector)

Turn the Power Supply on.
You should be able to bring the BIOS Setup screen up.

If no, consider the motherboard to be bad.

Post back in a Comment, as to the information I need.
CPU = Processor
PC = Computer, or just use Computer.

My Acer Aspire M5100 get power but will not turn on

Does the CPU fan come on ?
Does the power lead that plugs into the cpu fan on the motherboard supply the required voltage ?
This one is a bit harder and once you check it you most likely need to apply thermal paste - but is there sufficient thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink on the CPU ?
Does the power supply box in the tower case have its fan spinning when power on ?
Is the motherboard bent ?
I have seen this one - poor installation with different sized mounting screws. When motherboard gets hot the motherboard went faulty.
Some motherboards need a rubber insulator under the screw maybe there is a short under one of the mounting screws !

Voltage not going to cpu

Not sure just what you mean. If your computer is plugged into the wall and the power is turned on, the power supply should be on and the cooling fan turning. Also, the CPU fan should be turning and the hard drive should spin up.
Note that the power supply is the main component that must be supplying the power. If you don't hear or see the fan turning in the power supply and the little power light on the front of the computer does not light, replace the power supply.
If your power supply is running and nothing else is running, I would unhook all devices and leave just the CPU and video and memory in. If you get nothing, then the motherboard is probably bad.

I had a loud fan noise coming from inside my desktop box for a while. One day (& ever since,) when I went to turn the box on, absolutely nothing happened: no fans, no BIOS, no LEDs. I made no config...

This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Good Luck

If that problem is happen check the monitor cable if it is correctly plug to the motherboard, if your motherboard have video card attach try to remove the video card, if the same things happen thee problem is the processor, you need to check the processor, remove it and clean then put a thermal paste so that the heat from processor will absorb by the heatsink, and be sure that the heatsink fan it working to prevent the heat.

Good luck !!!

Cpu fan wont come on after new power supply put in

what made you change the power supply to begin with? Most cpu fans run off the motherboard, but the motherboard initially gets all voltages from the Power supply to begin wth. Did you assume that because cpu fan wasn't running to begin with, that the original power supply was bad. Not a bad assumption but one that needed verification before changing out a power supply. So it seems at this point that you have an unverified bad power supply, a possible bad motherboard, and a known good cpu fan. Plus at ths point you really don't know of the new power supply is good yet until you see something electrical run with it.

Not posting

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
