Question about Biostar Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I purchased a K8M800-M7A Motherboard, 2 mths ago. It supported a AMD Processor, but it has since shorted out. It shorted when I tried to add memory. Of course because of the short-out, I no longer have an operating computer. Now, I do have a warranty on this motherboard, and I would like to know what I need to do to have your company honor this warranty? Ido have a purchase receipt, and will be happy to produce it when or if need to. My name is Barry L. Reed, my e-mail address is brryreed3@aol.com. Please, I would like to have a solution to matter as soon as possible. Sincerely, A Troubled Consumer. please reply:

Not sure how u shorted it out installing ram. Theres only 1 way the put it in and there should have been NO power on the board at the time. AND I'd like to know how you think the board is shorted out. What is happening? It's a very rare occurrence and there are other easy fix issues that might make a person think the board is fried. Let me know your answers to these questions so I can help further.

SOURCE: motherboard problems??

If all the peripherals are working in other machines then it sounds like the chipset or the bios itself would be suspect.

Did anyone Flash the bios with an upgrade?

I have a motherboard that the northbridge is affected. All components seem to work fine except no USB ports or CardBus work.

    Chip up grade options!


    That
    is a socket 754 motherboard. It will support AMD Athlon processors up to Athlon64 3400+. It is a bit long in the tooth by today's standards, and only uses DDR memory, not DDR2. You may get more of a bang for your buck by buying a "barebones" system, which can consist of a motherboard with processor and memory, depending on how much you want in the barebones package.

    Typically you use the case, power supply you already have with the new motherboard and processor and ram (memory).

    At any rate, if you only want to upgrade your processor, keep in mind that your board only supports up to the Athlon64 3400+. It will support up to DDR 400 ram. You would probably benefit more by buying 2 sticks of 400 DDR ram at 2 gigs each, if you don't have much ram now. If your processor is close to the 3400+, then another processor in that board isn't going to change things much.

    Good luck, and write back if you'd like more help.
