Question about Intel Motherboard

I replaced mother board now I can't access files on old HD

My old eMachines mother board died , so I replaced it with a new one it is a
PCCHIPS M848A (v5.0) , SiS 746 socket A ,w/ a AMD Athlon XP 2100 cpu . I initially reconnected every thing to the new mother board , but the computer will not recognize my new mother board .
I then removed he old HD , installed a temp , realized my old back up disc , was a bundled OEM disc which will not recognize my new mother board either , so I went and replaced the old XP Home Bundled restore disc , and bought XP Pro to get the computer basically running .
I then installed my old HD as a slave drive , and the temp as Master .
Now I am being told access denied , I was set up as computer administrator and had my account password protected , is there anyway I can regain , old software , settings , and files ?

1 long beep 2 quick flashes on power button


Flashes & beeps indicate a start up failure on the motherboard. You'd need to google the trouble codes for your particular make & model to determine which mother board system is the problem. It might be simple like a mother board battery failure or something more complex like unreadable bios. If the computer is a few years old, it's not good. If you are curious, bring it to a repair shop but I can tell you 95% of the time you end up buying a new computer after you pay the shop fee. Why? Because you find out the repair costs almost as much as a better replacement on Amazon. Do yourself a favor. Get the replacement and have the computer shop recover your files from the old unit or pay $23 and get the DIY kit on EBAY. Good luck.

Cmos clock will not set !


Is the cmos clear jumper in the wrong position? if it is it will drain the battery and mess up the clock, You may have to flash the eeprom with a newer version BIOS obtainable from the manufacturer, check their website on this to see if it is a known issue ( I have seen this on multiple other manufacturers main boards). If this isnt it it is possible you have a bad clock chip

Try clearing the bios/cmos using the jumper on the board, page 10 in you're manual. Than try booting. See if you're keyboard allows you to get into the bios/cmos. I'm guessing you tried another keyboard? You can also buy a PS2 - to -USB Y adapter. This is what one looks like.

If you bought an AGP graphics card lately you might have also received a single PS2 to USB adapter free. Like this one.

It's not uncommon for the the lights to function & yet the keyboard not function. A single pin within the PS2 on the keyboard could be bent or bad or not seating correctly in you're new board.

Emachine solution


I don't see the previous post. Why do you need to replace your memory and mother board? How old is the emachine? Some of the P1 and PII systems had mother boards riveted in. If it is older than a P4 it would be best to replace the computer.
