I/O ports and Ps2 issues

No joy, definately not a grounding issue. I fear it maybe something simple that I maybe overlooking as I am still relatively a novice when it comes to PC builds.

Can I ask ( it may sound silly to you but) when installing a new motherboard and processor does the required DDR have to be brand new/clear of residual memory in order for CPU to initiate?

    Nope, no video. The mother board doesn't pick up the monitor/keyboard/mouse or speakers or anything connected to the PS2/USB ports to the rear.

    I do have "feet" between the motherboard and case too.


    Nothing wrong with the motherboard, having replaced it for another identical one only for the same problem to arise!

    I have a 20pin ATX power connection in a 24pin socket, but there is also a Secondary 4pin ATX power socket for which my PSU (ATX) doesn't have a cable supplied. Should or would this affect the motherboards power supply?

Not at all. you can put any memory stick as long as it's working.

Arcam alpha 10 only one channel works, how can i check it or fix it

Swap the speakers. If the problem follows the speaker, then it's a speaker issue. If it stays on the same channel., then it's an amp issue.

Try other source inputs. Is it the same on them? This tells you if it is a source/input/cable issue or a problem with the amp itself.

Fixing it depends largely on what the issue is, and how skilled you are with electronics. The issue could be something as simple as a bad cable or poor connection. Or it could be something age related such as dried out capacitors in the power amp stage, or maybe a blown output transistor pair. Go for the simple troubleshooting tips above and eliminate any basic problems before looking at more complex solutions.

If you're expecting as "press this button and all will be well", then sorry, you can forget that.

Stereo amps are old skool. There's no resets or apps or microprocessors. If something doesn't work then it's because a thing is broken. That means lifting the hood and getting dirty hands.

Have you checked the ground? Verify power at brake light switch connector, and if so, verify power to tail lamp? Start with the simple stuff, most issues are easily overlooked.

I am have passthrough issues with Procurve MSM710 Controller. I have to allow mac based authentication for let say Xbox live or PS3 to be able to go online. Is there a way I can define ports (port...

Hi Perry653,

If you do not want to use mac authentication - are you using an AP that supports VLANs? If so - then create an SSID tagged to a VLAN, with WPA security - and have these PS2 type of devices connect to that SSID - then create a VSC with that VLAN as ingress, and disable authentication.

If that is not an option, then your login web server can detect the UserAgent of the device, and do a NOC based login - this is subject to spoofing of UserAgent (but MAC is also subject to spoofing).

Finally, you could disable authentication, and use Tools/Trace to capture the packets that the Xbox uses, and whitelist in the ACL those ports, then re-enable authentication. I suspect the Xbox also uses port 80 (http) and if so, this method defeats the entire login page redirection.

So mac authentication really is the best method. We operate / manage / installed over 2000 of these type of devices, perhaps we can help you with your project.

Have a Dell Dimension. rebooted cpu and says keyboard failure hit F1 or F12. Mouse works and keyboard works in bios mode, but will not boot to XP Pro desktop. Tryed 2 sets of keyboards and mice. What do...

First, I would try booting to Safe Mode and see if that gets you to Windows. If it does, then it's a driver issue that can be relatively easily fixed by "Uninstalling" the keyboard in the Control Panel/Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the system reinstall the driver.

If that doesn't do it, then it sounds like the (assuming you're using a PS2 keyboard) PS2 keyboard plug port may be compromised (ie., damaged). Try using a USB keyboard instead and see if that solves your issue (as trying to repair a PS2 keyboard port is not practical).

Hope that's helpful.

Attach HP PS2 Keyboard to Dell Laptop

hmm, Interesting
Because the Laptops mostly do not have the PS2 Port,
if you are using the converters connecting the USB to the PS2.
then It may be the junction related issue.
so find a USB mouse and connect it directly or try with another Converter.
that should work.

USB Port Problems

Hi Jen Storm,

It is probably dirty on the inside. My guess is that Dust has built up on the motherboard and some moisture in the air has turned it to a conductive dust. This will casue a probably like you are seeing. Either Clean it up real good yourself or send it to a repair shopp. If you are looking for arepair Shop, Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, and Click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop in your Area, or Nation.

I'm wondering how old your ps2 is. unfortunately as with anything, electronic, age tends to make things break down. have you tried loading just a normal cd or dvd that isn't a game. if you try that, and it still dosn't work, it could be as simple as a loose connection on the inside of your ps2... or as complicated as the laser in the drive being screwed up. could even be another issue that dosn't come to mind. I hope you figure it out though, sorry I'm not more help. Good luck
