PC Chips M848A Motherboard

New install in a new case. Old hard drive and Floppy along with CD. Replaced burned out EMachines board and PSU. Used the Athlon XP CPU from old unit. System powers up and appears to go into setup screen, but will not respond to keyboard commands at all. Lights on keyboard flash at startup to indicate process is working. Can't figure out how to get beyond this point.

    Didn't think it was possible, but after the eMachines board and PSU fried, I think it took the keyboard and mouse with it. I tried a known good board and it worked, but my right mouse button didn't. Got it all straightened out and working fine. Thanks for the response.

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.

Sir,My system already formatted,than i installed new OS for W xp. but my system it is not boot any divas.Pls suggest me.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Pc chips a33g no boot windows


If you have a SATA hard drive your windows disk needs SATA drivers on it.
Download Driverspack from this site
http://driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/
Mass storage one
then copy windows CD to hard drive and use "Nlite" to install driverpack into it then burn windows to new CD and try again.
This should solve your problem

PC Chips M848A dead, no screen output or blips


I had the same problem. I bought the M848A from Newegg in an attempt to save my trusty Athlon 2600+ CPU and a fancy Raedon 512mb AGP card which I salvaged out of my old broken down system. I thought it would be a good time to update the RAM so I bought 2 gigs of OCZ 3200 DDR400 to go with.

Problems:
(1) First the damn thing wouldn't boot past the post screen. It would simply cycle thru post over and over. Fixed: The microsoft XPpro operating system was corrupt. The new board hated the old configs from the previous system. After trying (and failing) a os repair, I ended up simply doing a clean intall with great results. Board was stable worked great for a week. Only had one glitch...

(2) The board would only recognize and post ONE of the 2 gigs of ram I bought. I raided all the CMOS settings, and downloaded all the user manuals I could get a hold of and found no answers to this curious problem. On a whim, I opened the case and switched their locations back and forth which led me to...

(3) Lights on, no one home. All the lights came on... power, HDD, cd drives... all the fans worked: case, CPU, graphics card... but the screen would remain blank/unpowered and no post menu would come up. Seemed like it wanted to work, but simply stopped short of booting up. THIS WAS YOUR PROBLEM?!?? On a hunch, (more an angry impulse) I reached over and popped an old Mushkin Technologies (PC 3200 400DDR) 512mb out of my old dead mobo and slammed it solo in the primary memory slot. Bingo. Fired right up.

The board appears to be testy with its RAM... If it fails its initial memory test, it will not post. The screen will not come on. I'm not 100% certain this is the final solution to the problem... I'm still playing with it. My questions now are.... do I have dead RAM? Chip compatibility issues? Perhaps the PC Chips support techs on their website have some practical advice on this issue. I'll keep you posted if you like.

Cannot get motherboard to boot from hard drive


Have you checked the Bios to see if its actually recognising the hard drive?

Turn on the computer and I think on your bios it should be the f2 key to get into the bios, if its not detecting the hard drive you may just have a jumper on the drive set wrong

Let me know if I can be of further assistance

Motherboard will not boot from Hard Drive


Go into your BIOS with the appropriate key (printed on the screen when you first turn the PC on).

Look around the various menus for a "boot order" or something to that effect.

I'd usually set it for CDROM then HDD... but as long as the hard disk is actually in the list before anything else with a bootable disc in it, you should be fine!
