Question about Intel Desktop Board SE440BX-2 Motherboard

Board won't boot up.

Hello. My problem is that my board won't boot up. It is my evaluation that the bios somehow my be corrupted. I have removed all cards from the board except for video. The video card has been tested and does work. I have also replaced the microprocessor. It works too.

    The power light comes on but the board doesn't respond. I read an article which said that the SE440BX-2 model motherboards were shipped defectively. Apparently, there was a power supply issue with some of the boards which would send a signal that reset the bios or would wipe it out. It seems as if this is true.

    I have replaced the CMOS battery. I have used two different power supplies (I am not sure what SMPS means). I have tried different memory. Nothing seems to power the board up. So what this tells me is that the bios is deprogrammed. The defect that Intel created with the power supply issue has wiped out this particular board. It was never sent back in for replacement of new capacitors and tested by the kit that Intel sent out to the manufacturers of the computers using these boards. So if I can't get the board to power up is there anyway that I can take it somewhere to get it powered up and reprogrammed? Or is it worth it?

Is there a place that can reprogram a dead motherboard? The hardware is good but the flash bios has been wiped out.

D845GVAD2 no bios screen no beep no boot


Hello here is the intel homepage:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+845+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D845GVAD2

Try to renew the power supply, with one you know is working.
I think that`s the problem.

The problem could ofcourse also be the mainboard itselves failing.
There is not much to do about that, other than renew the mainboard or buy a new pc.

Good luck

Comp. will not boot power supply is ok drives and fans run but no bios boot or any action?


Did you refash the bios?, you may have corrupted the bios rom chip. They can be bought online if you google your brand of board, ebay has a lot of that kind of thing. That's the cheapest fix that you can try, if you overclocked it or somehow it just fried the main processor, it could be dead, Also check to see if you lost a jumper off the board, your manual or online should have a schematic, and make sure your processor is seated properlly, it may just have popped out. Make sure the wires didn't fall off the start switch also. Just unplug it and open it up and recheck everything to see that it's all plugged in right. Sometimes a wire or jumper will just fall out, hope that's all it is

Hi bob_snz:
If the bios is corrupted, as it seems to what happened, you may be able to fix it.
So, what you can do to restore this board, if the bios is replaceable is to buy a new bios module for this board. Be sure to get the exact model marked on the board with the version #.
u
The data is still on the hard drive. So, what you can do with the hard drive, if you decide to get a new board instead of trying to fix this one is to put the hard drive in another computer and set the drive as slave. Next is to copy your data to a DVD (s) or another hard drive.

In this case you have a couple possibilities. Try to fix this board with a new bios module (if it is removable).
Unplug your hard drive. Use another computer to download the correct bios flash version. Use a floppy if available, to try to flash the bios again. The floppy would be self boot to access the bios without booting the computer. Usually the floppy only boots what is necessary to get to the bios firmware and loads to the bios flashing it to the correct firmware.
Since the bios may be corrupted, this operation may not work, but may be worth a try. If you do not have a floppy on the computer find a floppy from a friend or if you have one, install it and proceed.
Again, it may not work if the bios is completely out of commission.
Hope it works.

P5NT won't boot


Have you tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery with PSU off and then shorting the 'reset cmos" (or similar) pins on mobo?

Also found this on the ASUS web site under the specs for the P5NT WS board...

01.gif ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support DVD. Users can reboot their system through the support DVD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process. ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

Have you tried this?

Hello,
The beeps can be either video or memory. Most likely it is memory. Check the memory.
