Question about Computers & Internet

Advent T9400 dead motherboard

Pentium IV 3.4GHz HT (prescott processor)
Trigem 865PE motherboard (MSI?)

I plugged a USB peripheral in and it blew the PSU fuse.
My pc is on a surge-protector plug which didn't blow, neither did the fuse in the plug. I have a working PSU but the board still does not come on (the psu won't either).

I have a good knowledge of electronics and am probably capable of carrying out a repair if it can be diagnosed - perhaps its a common problem with these boards, which are quite old now.

As always, finding the problem is 9/10ths of the solution, so if anyone can give me some pointers i will report back here to the community if and when its fixed to report what the problem was.

Regards, jason

ps - please ask if more info is required. I have a multimeter and so can check various inputs outputs etc.

    hi - psu has been replaced and checked. Works fine (tested via shorting relavant pins etc. and testing with multi meter).

    Perhaps the chipset has blown. Can it be replaced? I'm suprised the motherboard doesnt seem to have any on-board fuse - is this something that newer motherboards have?



    The 865 was a powerful board for its time. I've checked for bad capacitors etc... all seems fine on the surface. No motherboard scorch marks either.

    Hi and thanks for your help!
    psu is fine (its new and has been tested).
    I find it strange that the board has no on-board fuse. Is this something that newer boards have? It seems a shame to abandon the board when ive checked the capacitors etc. All seem ok (no leakage/bulges etc. There are also no scorch marks on the board.

    If it is the chipset, how could i tell (are there any tests i could perform) and could it be replaced?

First replace the PSU, (it might be badly damaged - not only the fuse) and if you were unlucky enough to blow the chipset too it won't start even after the PSU replacement.

Which fan/heatsinks can be used on an MS-7174 Ver 1 motherboard? It seems there needs to be clearance for some capacitors to fit beneath it.


Heatsinks are dependent on the type of processor that you have, I recommend that you call Microcenter or fry electronic

Specs on this cpu process


MicroStar International (Inc) Support > 865PE Neo2-P Platinum Edition (MSI MS-6728) Main Support page,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/865PE-Neo2-P-Platinum-Edition.html

Click on Specification
(Overview / Specification / Download / Support / etc)

CPU (Processor) Support;

1) Intel Pentium 4 processors that have;

A) Use a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Northwood Core, or Prescott Core

C) Front Side Bus (FSB) of 400MegaHertz (400MHz) for Intel Pentium 4 processors that are based on the Northwood Core.

D) FSB support of either 533MHz, or 800MHz, for Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core.

Processors that have an 800MHz FSB can be used, that have UP TO a 3.6GHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Indication that higher 'speeds' can be supported. (Overclocking?)

Now let's look at Intel Pentium 4 processors, that are based on the Northwood Core, and fit a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Front Side Bus = FSB
The M/Ts listing means MegaTransfers per Second.
Believed to be a more accurate method of stating the FSB, than MHz.

MegaHertz
Mega = 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second. Was named after a man with the last name Hertz.
Example; 400MHz = 400 Million Cycles per Second )

Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core, and utilizing the Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

sSpec Number will be on the processor, as well as the Part Number.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/index.html

Scroll down for photos.

CPU support can be attested to looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset, on your motherboard.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 865PE chipset.
Intel 82865PE northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH5 southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Scroll down to 865PE in the left column.

The part number on the Intel ICH5 southbridge chip, is Intel 82801EB,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Southbridge_8xx_chipsets

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is the AGP technology, or PCI Express technology.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

If this is a question of what CPU is on your motherboard at present, and the motherboard is in a working computer, suggest use the free tiny program CPU-Z from CPUID.com,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Need to know how to download, install, and use CPU-Z, post back in a Comment.

Msi p4n sli board


The Only CPU's that board supports are:

  • Supports 90nm LGA775 processor package
  • Supports Intel Pentium Processor Extreme Edition
  • Supports Intel Pentium D Smithfield processors
  • Supports Intel Pentium 4 / Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology ready

  • So sadly no I am sorry. However it does Support a P4 with HT which is still a very nice CPU
