Which type of wire's are they? If you are talking about mobo onboard speaker and front led cables. It should be written on motherboard itself. You need to take it to bright light and try to find out. If it is speaker cables it should be in spkr word. If iti s front LED then it should be colour coding on motherboard. Good luck with that.
I know, this is a very frustrating situation... Unfortunately, the only reasonable way to find out what's wrong is to swap components with a reference system, until you found the defective part. I hope you have another P3 system available to swap parts.
I would do it this way:
First check that the power button is connected correctly.
Swap the memory from the faulty system to the reference system.
If ok, put it back into the faulty system and connect the power
supply from the reference system (or some other known good one) to the
If this doensn't help, swap the CPU from the faulty system to the reference system.
If the CPU is ok, the motherboard seems to be defective.
you may have dislodged something as you carried out the upgrade - Check all the cables are seated correctly - also check the memory is correctly seated
does the machine bleep at all this will give an indication of what the problem may be ------ the number and pattern of the bleeps
the next step would be to remove all unnecessary devices, like the CD , DVD , spare drives - getthe machine to a minimum state of just PSU, MOBO, CPU, Memory, harddrive, graphics and see if that boots
also as you have upgraded the video card can you put the old one back in....
If you changed out the power supply, and checked all the cables, checked and made sure the power switch was on, checked the switch for 110/220 on back of computer, confirmed it was plugged into a good socket, check the cable that connects the motherboard to the power supply with a voltmeter that may help in isolating the problem. The small motheboard light is on beause the CMOS battery is still supplying the board with some electricity.
On the jumpers, couldn't get you a diagram they are not avabilable; cover pins 1-2 is normal mode; cover pins 2-3 is to configure BIOS; none the BIOS will attempt to configure itself but you have to boot from a cd rom or diskette. Hope this helps. If none of those works then its the motherboard.
Pls rate this solution.
I have built quite a few PCs and I have often found the same problem when trying to boot for the first time. An old trick that might help is to repeatedly energize then drain the PC electricity. Do this by plugging in the PC momentarily then unplugging it then immediately pressing the power button on the PC while there is no power hooked up. Do this several times over and over again in quick succession. Finally turning on the PC with the power connected. If the power supply on the PC has a switch on it you may use that instead of actually plugging and unplugging. Also you might try pressing and holding down the "ins" or "insert" key while powering on the PC. Hope this helps.
Same configuration? (Same: Mobo, Processor, Hard Drive?) Just new case and cables? Do you have onboard sound, are you running a sound card, or perhaps you're plugged into a fancy graphics card sound port?. Try these configuration tips before you tear it all apart: Check your device manager in the system section and make sure your intended sound device is operational with no (!), or (?) alerts next to it. Reinstall any mobo, graphics card, or sound card drivers which run your sound device. AND finally, if you have more than one sound device on your computer (mine has all 3 options I described), make SURE you have the right one selected in your sound manager!
try to look on the jumper settings on the motherboard before you upgrade your proccessor maybe they need to be adjusted.tryb to put back the one wich was there and see what happens.how many beeps does your computer makes when you switch in on?if it makes more than one then your proccessor is not compatible with the board.a computer should beep once whenevever its switched on
