Question about Albatron PX865PE Pro Motherboard

1 Answer

The heat sink on one of the support chips came off and wedged between the graphics board and the thermaltake cpu cooler after the PC was knocked over. The resultant short circuit to ground has blown the motherboard and probably the graphics board as well. I have tried another graphics board but the system is dead, not even a beep from the speaker. Power supply is ok. I have software on this PC that is licenced and although I have all the licence details, re-installing on a new Windows 7 based PC fails due to incompatibily. In order to export data from this software I need to resurrect the old PC. To do that I need another compatible motherboard. Can you help in locating an Albatron PX865PE Pro please?

Clue no 1
all of the operating system, files , folders and data are on the hard drive not the mother board
you can fit a new mother board then refit the hard drive and it will be capable of restarting up again
discuss that with a computer repair shop where you buy the new mother board and graphic board
next time use the heat sink adhesive between the cpu chip and the cooling fan heat sink and install it properly

SOURCE: I have Albatron PX865PE Pro

I have found that if using a previous used hd and just reformatting the drive wouldn't allways work with some software and some pci cards.
I found out that using a data eraser first on the hd,then installing windows fully,then add the add-ons(pci Boards) and software as directed works fine.

(data eraser) my software overwrites with 00 all of the drive including the system files.

Hi

The 300W Power Supply Unit is still somewhat under-powered 550W is required so that the computer is powered by a PSU working under minimum load strain and well within its power output capacity. 300W is the original Specification, See here:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/inspd531/en/OM/appendix.htm

See here:

Sometimes, positioning the base unit directly on a carpet with a thick shaggy pile, or enclosing in it, during use in a poorly ventilated under desk cubby hole, next to a radiator, or in place receiving direct sunlight, polarised by glass in the nearby windows or some similar place can have a underestimated impact on the base unit's ability to cool itself when in use. Cooling is essential for the CPU, Motherboard Chipset, Graphics Card or onboard Graphics Chip, Hard Drive and RAM Memory. All need to be as cool as possible to work at optimum efficiency and the performance of each suffers drastically when exposed to over hot conditions, particularly the CPU which, from stone cold, can reach the temperature of boiling water within seconds of the computer being powered up and will underperform, overheat and shut down at the merest incidence of over hot conditions. So review all the salient cooling issues, then consider adding a separate, dedicated, fan cooled graphics card, its GPU Fan adding to the efficient cross circulation of cooling air to more of the interior and, also, its own built-in GRAM freeing up the 16Mb, 32Mb, 128Mb or 256Mb of System RAM that the on-board graphics chip borrowed from the RAM Modules. RAM that has to work less hard, works at a cooler temperature and thus more efficiently. The CPU works more efficiently as it no longer has to compensate as much for the loss of System RAM previously commandeered by the on board graphics, so it also generates less heat in doing so. Consider removing the (usually) green coloured, plastic Heat Conduit over the CPU and changing the CPU Heat Sink for a more effective, higher quality one, the leaving the conduit to one side. Cooling is about the rapid movement of vast volumes of air. The conduit works against itself by unnecessarily confining the hottest component in the case - the CPU. See an example here:

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-RR-910-HTX3-G1-130-Watt-Hyper/dp/B0028Y4S9K/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1315114816&sr=1-1

Consider also Inexpensive but beneficial, cooling Motherboard Chip and RAM Heat Sinks for the RAM Modules. Inexpensive, underside fan powered Hard Drive Coolers that screw to the underside of Hard Drives. See examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-TMG-HD1-HDD-Cooler/dp/B000ZM8D4I/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1315115079&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B0009YIJ2I/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_3?ie=UTF8&index=3

The 550W PSU is necessitated by the extra cooling devices you contemplate installing

sounds like its had a knock and one of the heat sinks on the CPU or graphics chip is loose and overheating. It needs to shut of so as not to damage the CPU/graphics chip.

3 of 4 rings were red, now no lights at all


ok the three red rings was lit to notify you that your board, cpu and gpu have experienced a significant source of heat. So much in fact you really should bring it to a repair shop. I see these at least 4-5 times a day your 360 needs to be disassembled and the heat sinks removed this will allow you access to the cpu and gpu both sides of the board need to be heated with a equal amount of heat to heat up the solder and reseat both chips.

My heat sink got dirty and caused a thermal event alarm (overheated) the computer will shut down when the cpu is taxed. do i need a new cpu


No, if the computer will start and it run bios screen and boots into windows
the cpu is fine, you need to get a better cpu cooler.

Buy a better cpu cooler for your socket, coolers are designed for the Socket that the processor plugs into.

Go to Newegg.com and llok for a cooler, you will see reviews by people
and if they liked the cooler, there are little eggs next to the product
is it has high ratings, you will see what I mean when you look at the site.


The page I posted is already on the cooler page, just llok to the left side
and look at sockets and pick your socket out to look at coolers for your system.

Our 18 bottle vinotemp cooler quit cooling, the electrical is ok


Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

Processor heats up while processing heavy graphics


The only way to keep it cool is a bigger heat sink or more airflow.

We have mounted fans into the top of the side panel of a PC to draw air out of the chassis which seems to do the trick

Get a QMax cutter and put some holes in the lower half of the right hand panel

Cover the holes with stainless steel mesh glued on with a hot glue gun

That way you create a chimney effect causing cooler air to be drawn in at the bottom and the hot stuff out of the top

If the fans can be mounted above the level of the processor then you have the optimum

Over heating and how to change admin password


Assuming yours is windows xp.

go to start->control panel->useraccounts->
select the admin account. side list see change the password.
you have to input the old one to change the new one.

and overheating is caused by damaged heat sink interface material or even damaged heat sink.

if interface material is damaged then replace it with the intel original heat sink interface material or cooler master material.
if heat sink is damaged then select the appropriate heat sink for your cpu.
my recommendation other that original cpu coolers is cooler master cpu coolers. very less cost but superb effective against processor overheating.

Intel D865GBF Motherboard


Hi Jharper91,
There is no easy way to explain how to remove your Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with out some pictures. Intel does have a site showing how to install. Once you understand how to install you'll be able to remove. Try looking through this link from Intel.
http://www.intel.com/support/processors/pentium4/sb/CS-007988.htm
Newer Intel Pentium 4 processor use 4 plastic pins to hold the retention clip onto the board. To remove them you will need to lift the motherboard out of the case. Using a needle-nose plier to squeeze the plastic ends together & pop-out the plastic pins.

The north bridge can be glued onto the chipset & have
2 pins bent inwards on themselves. Bend them in and push them through. If glued, use a hair dryer to heat the cooler, thus making the glue soften. Each board can & do use different methods to hold coolers to the chipset's. You might want to keep in mind the total db of adding a bunch of coolers. It may get very noisy for you.

I hope you find this helpful.
If I can help you more just post you're question's here.
Good Luck Jharper91!

Motherboard is not booting!!!!!


Hi Jay,
Is you're memory installed in the two yellow slots?
Try using only 1 DIMM in DDRII_1 slot.
Page 17 in you're manual. When using only one PCI-E graphics cards you do not need to plug in extra power to the board, as shown on page 19. (Only need this additional 4-pin Molex when running two PCI-E cards).
Check internal connector is plugged in item,
1 ATX_12V_2X (Pg. 23 in you're manual).
(System will not boot without this).
Also item, 2 main power 24-pin Molex cable is securely connected. Chassis Intrusion Header (By default is opened/no jumper). I don't like the CPU getting hot. It shouldn't. Do you have a spare heat sink & fan for you're CPU? Are you 100% the cooling system is running correctly?
Lastly, here is Gigabyte's Qualified Vendors List (QVL), for you're board. Corsair 2GB is not listed.
