Question about Matsonic MS8137C Motherboard

1 Answer

No power at all

My friend lives in CA and built this computer from scratch for me. He used this mother board. I was getting an error on boot up that keyboard was recognized and floppy disc error (80).
Now the computer won't power up at all. I went out and bought a new power supply, but that did not help.
any suggestions?

    The CMOS battery is the round battery on the mother board, correct? If so, I replaced it and still nothing. I guess I should try replacing the power supply now as well and perhaps both of them being new is the answer?

Hello,
Maybe your cmos battery has died. Buy a new one for about $5.00 and replace it. It is the battery that saves the settings for the motherboard but if it is dead the motherboard will get absolutely no power.
When you replace it, leave the power plugged in to the cpu for a couple minutes to charge up the battery and regain the settings and then try to power on the cpu again. If this still doesn't help then check the power supply.

Thanks,
Lolita

Display problem due to mother board not accessing the RAM


Motherboards that have an on-board video card/chip, uses part of the main RAM module for its video RAM. If the RAM module is faulty then there isn't any video RAM available and therefore the computer won't boot up.
Try re-seating the RAM module first and see if the computer boots up.
If not, remove the RAM and take it to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If the RAM is faulty then replace the RAM.

I have an Intel E210882 mother board. Within a week, it was starting to become hard to boot, then I had to boot in F8 mode, and now when I turn on the power switch, the LEDs light turn on and the cpu fan...


If you have another computer that will hook up to the internet, download a copy of any live Linux CD (UBUNTU) and see if the computer will boot with that (you download a image file that burns to a boot able cd). If it will boot with a live CD, then you have a Hard drive / operating system problem. If it will not boot from that, you have a mother board problem. Start removing things from the motherboard, unplug and remove everything then plug hook up things one at a time.

Mother board asus a7v133


Hi there.
No i doubt its the chipset but rather the system memory.
Pull the power cord from the back, open the side panel, get a clean dry soft paintbrush, take out the system memory and clean the brass pins and the ram slots of any dust that may have built up, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place nice and tight and try to boot the computer up again.
If you still get beeps count how many there are and if they are long or short and post back here.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Asus k8s mx mother board problem


To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS.
Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE.
Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.
