Question about EliteGroup (ECS 915PL-A2) Motherboard

1 Answer

Shutdown at Windows Log-in or Desktop

I just installed this 915PL-A2 MB and have a problem with the system crashing at either the Windows Log-in screen or when it gets to the Desktop. Replaced the Power Supply, removed PCI cards (IDE, Wireless) and even Graphics Card systematically to isolate, but problem continues. Even remove Memory SIMs and no help.

775 Socket, P4

Any ideas or something I am missing?

Thank... Keith

Hi kpspero, I gather you can get into you're bios? Once there go to hardware monitor (page 26 in you're manual, which should allow you to watch the motherboard temp & CPU temp. You're CPU may be overheating. (Keep the case closed when checking this). Normal operation. Did you add thermal grease between the CPU & heatsink? Go to page 4 & 5 of you're manual. Check that you have connected number 21, Auxiliary 4-pin power connector.
Two more thoughts. If everything is connected correctly & you're system is not over heating, try updating the bios. Click on this link which will take you to ECS's web site for you're board.

After flashing the bios, re-check you're bios settings. There are many updates for the 915PL-A2 MB & for windows. Did you hear any beeps from the PC during boot up? Did you connect the motherboard speaker? If you do not have a motherboard speaker you can get one from this site:
http://store.cwc-group.com/casp.html Lastly, since you can get to you're desktop, from time to time. Is this a fresh install of windows XP? Have you installed windows more than once? If you said yes to either. Download the hard drives manufactures bootable floppy disk setup software/tools/utilities & use that floppy to format the hard drive & setup the drive. Do not use windows to perform the format. Install ECS's CD software/drivers after windows has been installed.
If you're system continues to has this shut down problem, post back & I'll go from there.

Good Luck!
Mike

Cannot install printer on Windows XP home as administrator. Message says: "you do not have permission to modify the settings for this printer"


Log-into your desktop screen as you usually do. Then click start followed by Control Panel. Once you are in the control panel double click Users. Now select the option to change how users log on to Windows. Options appear, I want you to select the option to enable administrative rights. Once selected click Apply followed by ok. Now shutdown your computer and power on again. Log in and now try to install your printer. Please if you need more information give me a shout.

Take care!

Describe your (ECS 915PL-A2) Motherboard Problem do not detect hard disk and dvd rider in the bios


1. Check if both drive data and power cables are correctly and tight fitted.
2. If both are fitted on PATA (IDE) on the same port/cable:
The harddisk should be the MASTER and DVD the SLAVE device.
3. Recheck.

4. If not OK, Power OFF the computer (also from the wall outlet).
5. Place the mainboard jumper for CMOS RESET to the other position for a few seconds and place it back.
6. Turn the computer Power ON and check.

if you download and install tune up 2010, it may fix your registry automatically for you however if it fails to, your operating system will continue to fail to shutdown. Device drivers are very well known for causing this error and if you have installed a new device and your computer is not picking up the new device properly, then the computer will not shut down. There are several forms of viruses that cause the system to stay on, power problems may cause the system to crash during a storm and thus damage the computer registry. A system defragmentation, cleanup, along with a registry clean would be the first best ideas.

Cannot find the SATA hard drives for my ecs 915PL-A2 mother board. All connections have been checked


Did it just stop? Or is the a new system?
Did you check your BIOS settings?
ECS is not known for excellent quality - if you have a bad board hopefully it is still under warranty.
