Question about Biostar P4M900-M4 Motherboard
There could be many things that could stop the board from turning on, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or HDD or whatever as long as it's a drive) the CPU, graphics card (if required) and one bank of memory, unless the board requires dual matching chips.. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Also, if your going to load a ide drives, make sure you set your pin settings for master/slave/CS are set correctly on it. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan spinning. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the six elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card or finally the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the elements with another to see if you get any change. Also, on the drive, try a different cable to make sure it's not that. I usally start with the drive, then move to the memory chip, next CPU, Last PSU. I also make sure that my replacements work on another machine first. If no change, then it's save to say you have a bad Board. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
