Bad luck, check also the memory modules that you have maybe its not compatible with the processor, check also your power supply it should be 350w to 500w

I have a Soya SY-7VCA mobo that hasn't been used for about 6 years. Upon bootup, I received a CMOS checksum error message, but was still able to load a copy of Windows 98SE that I had on floppy. After...


Probably your BIOS battery, replace that and setup you BIOS again and it should be fine. BIOS batteries look like little round watch batteries.

Any more questions just let me know.

Thanks

What are the functions of its parts?


1) Motherboard Diagram, (Proper computer speak for motherboard is Mainboard. I just use Mobo.
MOtherBOard)

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

2) Soyo SY-KT400 Dragon Ultra - motherboard diagram,

http://techreport.com/articles.x/4139


CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
The 'Brain' of the computer.

The Processor sits in a processor socket.
The processor socket for the Soyo SY-KT400 is a Socket A. Also known as Socket 462.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_462


The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip.

The motherboard chipset for the Soyo SY-KT400 is the VIA KT400 - Northbridge chip, and the VIA VT8235 - Southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A


The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of the computer.

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors can be supported, what Ram Memory can be supported, and High-Speed graphics.

High-Speed graphics being AGP and PCI Express, not a graphics card installed in a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics.

The Processor communicates with the Northbridge chip through the Front Side Bus. (FSB)
Think of the FSB as an 'Information Highway'.

The Northbridge chip communicates TO the Southbridge chip through the Internal Bus.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of the computer.

The Southbridge chip handles IDE, SATA, USB, Ethernet, Integrated Graphics, and the PCI bus.
(As in a graphics card installed in a PCI expansion slot, for one example)

Also handles information from the Super I/O chipset.
The Soyo SY-KT400 - Super I/O chipset is a VIA VT1211

There are 5 PCI slots. All connected to the PCI bus, which is connected to the Super I/O chipset.

Scroll down a little bit to the photo of the Soyo SY-KT400 motherboard.

A) At the top middle is the Processor socket. White in color, rectangular in shape, square hole in the middle, and socket holes on it.

To the immediate left of the Processor socket are 8 Electrolytic Capacitors in a row.
These capacitors are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors. (Used all over the motherboard)

These particular 8 are part of the motherboard voltage regulator circuit.
Specifically, voltage regulation for the Processor.

B) To the right of the Processor socket are three long Black Ram Memory slots. (Proper computer speak for Slot, is Bank. 3 Ram Memory Banks)

C) The Blue and the White connectors to the right of the Ram Memory slots are IDE connectors.
One for the Harddrive, the other one for the optical drive/s.

D) Underneath the Processor is the Northbridge chip. There is a clear fan sitting on it.

E) The large square Black chip with VIA on it, below the Ram Memory slots, and to the right of the purple PCI slots, is the Southbridge chip.

F) The 5 purple long slots are PCI expansion slots.

G) To the right of the bottom purple PCI slot is the CMOS battery.

H) Above the purple PCI slots is a brown AGP slot.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards

You might try switching the VGA cable if you haven't. If that doesn't work then I'd agree with you in saying the motherboard is likely fried.

check your pin packging. if it is 478pin packaging then you can upgrade only to that.

Replaced soyo mobo with pc chips m848, now windows won't load


I just put a PC Chips mobo in my computer.  You need to reinstall Windows.  Windows is still trying to loa dthe drivers for your old motherboard and is running into brick walls.  So it will not load.  If there is data on that hard drive that you absolutely must have and can not replace, bring it to a friends house and make a backup.  Then reinstall windows, then trasfer back over the files.  I am aware of the fact that you can "restore" windows without losing the files.  However this option still has currupted filed to the point they are non-readable for me and many other users.  Other than that, buy another small hard drive, install windows to it.  After that is done, all you have to do is hook up your other hard drive as a secondary hard drive and run the both of them in your computer.
