Question about PC Chips M955G Motherboard

1 Answer

Thanks man Thank you so much for the manual. I think I have connected everything up but when I connect the power lead up and attempt to turn it on, there is nothing! no lights or sound! Would I need a bigger transformer? How would I know if I need a bigger one? Thanks again man!

Follow the PWR cable from the case to the mother board, and make sure it goes to PW_ON, and the PWR LED, goes to PWR_LED on the board (see page 33 of the manual). Additionally check that BOTH power cables from the PSU are plugged into the board (see page 18 and 28 of the manual, ref PW1 and PW2)

No boot, no bios, cpu not initialized


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive 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 they could be 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 could be faulty
computers need data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty power connection or faulty fan lead can cause you problems

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer ram modules make sure they are securely seated
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue

hope this helps

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your 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 could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket
hope this helps

That connector is the CPU power connector. Plugging it in and having the problem surface signifies either the CPU is blown, or there is a short in the power lead. The only way to make sure is to either try a different CPU, or connect your power supply to another motherboard.

Response to MSI question


I would assume you have double checked all the connections to the motherboard from the power supply, and all other wire connections as well.

How many watts is the power supply? Perhaps there is too much for it to handle?

Try connecting only the HDD and the motherboard/cpu/fan and graphics card and see if it boots up, If it does, your PSU is being overworked.

I will continue to think up some more things...
