The motherboard needs RAM to operate- the beeping is the motherboard reporting unusable RAM- in this case no RAM

How many processors supports my motherboard p4m80-m4 biostar ? specially can it support dual core processor...??? also tell me about supported graphics card please help me>>>???


You have a very old motherboard here. It only supports the older AGP 8x video cards. Good luck finding one of those anymore that is worth the price, and don't expect anything you find to be new in box. This is probably where your HD video woes start, although the board was never designed for the higher frame rates that HD requires to be viewable.

As far as the processor goes, this board has the Socket 478 for Intel processors. There are no dual-core processors that are supported by this socket. Here is a link to an article that shows what processors are supported by the socket. Be advised, however, that depending upon the BIOS revision on the board, some of these may not work properly, if at all.


Socket 478 Socket mPGA478B


Really, if you want to view HD, it's time for a real upgrade.

Have a replacement motherboard. After about 1 minute it powers itself off. Sometimes it does it sooner - sometimes later. Have replaced the Power supply, removed the graphics card, unplugged all...


Your motherboard is manufacturing defective. If the motherboard still under warranty, take it back to the computer shop where you purchase and demand for an exchange.

Hi

There could be many things that could stop the board from turning on, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or HDD or whatever as long as it's a drive) the CPU, graphics card (if required) and one bank of memory, unless the board requires dual matching chips.. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Also, if your going to load a ide drives, make sure you set your pin settings for master/slave/CS are set correctly on it. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan spinning. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the six elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card or finally the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the elements with another to see if you get any change. Also, on the drive, try a different cable to make sure it's not that. I usally start with the drive, then move to the memory chip, next CPU, Last PSU. I also make sure that my replacements work on another machine first. If no change, then it's save to say you have a bad Board. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
Please don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

No Video Output.


Try without any RAM and see if there is a beep...if there is then mobo is ok. If no beeps still. Check the CPU. Also check the PSU if its giving adequate power to all the added cards. If possible try with another PSU. Try clearing CMOS as well. If all these doesn't do any good to the mobo, I think its time to RMA the mobo. Have a great day!

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside


If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.

This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!
