My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

Biostar Tpower x58 LGA1366 motherboard will not start or post


"I sent it for repair but it came back in the same condition!"

That means to me, spiritual_sky, that there is operator headspace.

Motherboard was fine when they tested it, and problem is on your end; Or they didn't test it, and shipped it back.

Going to go through the basics, so be patient. Mistakes are often made by those of us who are technically qualified, due to simple errors.

http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=390

A) The Support Plate the motherboard is mounted to, can be a separate plate, or is an integral part of the metal frame, of the computer case.

1) It looks as though there are 10 mounting 'holes'. (Manual gives no details. Looking at it right now. Going by Biostar Support page, and main view)

Is there a metal Standoff on the Support Plate, that does Not line up with the mounting holes? If so it is touching an exposed solder joint.
This = No

B) Have all the power cables needed connected to the motherboard?

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable. (Hooked end of Lock on power cable hooked over Tab on motherboard connector)

2) 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
Has 4 Yellow 12 Volt wires, and 4 Black ground wires,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

Has a Lock on the power cable connector also, and Tab on the motherboard connector. When plugged in properly, and tightly, the hooked end is over the Tab.

Connects to Left Upper corner.

Not to be confused with an 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

[NOT an inference towards you, but I have seen people who could destroy a steel ball bearing in a sandbox, with a rubber mallet. They would try to cram an 8-pin PCI Express power cable, into a connector on the motherboard for an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable ]

Three Yellow 12 Volt wires, FIVE Black ground wires.

A 6-pin PCI Express power cable will fit, and work, in a connector for an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
Problem is it does -> Not, deliver the power that an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable will deliver.

A graphics card senses whether a 6-pin, or an 8-pin power cable is being used.
SOME graphics cards will not work unless it is an 8-pin.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

[See the power adapter cable on the right? Notice it uses TWO 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables. Some people make the mistake of only using one. This = NO ]

3) 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. (Misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable)
Provides auxiliary power for the graphics card.
Manual states,
"This connector is an auxiliary power connection for graphics cards.
EXCLUSIVE power for the graphics card provides better graphics performance."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

May be reaching here, but if the graphics card you are using does ->Not require an additional power cable connected directly to it, but does ->max out what the motherboard can provide, not connecting that additional 4-pin power cable may be the problem.

May need it even if the graphics card does have it's own power cable/s.

Graphics card requires a power cable? Better have it plugged in.
Requires TWO power cables? Better have two power cables plugged in, and Not just one.

Graphics has a problem? The motherboard will not start, or P.O.S.T.

Using a single Graphics card.
HAS to go in the PCI Express x16 slot next to the Northbridge chip, under the processor socket. (PEX16_1)

The PCI Express slot that is the same length at the bottom, is a
PCI Express x4 slot. This = No.

[Top slot next to Northbridge, {Copper finned Heatsink is on top of Northbridge chip},

PCI-Express x16 slot. Slot 1.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x16 slot. It is Slot 2.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x4 slot ]


C) Simple error; Front Panel header pinout.

Front Panel header (JPANEL1) is at the bottom right corner.
Pins 1 through 8 are on the Bottom row;
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Pins 9 through 16 are on the Top row;
9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16.

A) Pins 1, 2, 3, and 4 are for an Internal speaker. For BIOS Beep Codes. Pin 1 is for the Positive (+) wire. Pin 4 is for the Negative (-) wire.

B) Pins 5 and 6 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 5 is for the Positive (+) wire.

C) Pins 7 and 8 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

D) Pins 9 and 10 are N/C. Not connected. There is No Pin 11.

E) Pins 12, 13, and 14 are for a dual color Power On LED.
Pins 12 and 13 are for the Positive (+) wires, Pin 14 for the Negative.
If just using a single color Power ON LED, use Pins 12 and 14.

F) Pins 15 and 16 are for the Power On switch.

Make sure the Power On switch is good. Remove the wires, touch a Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver to the two pins - Briefly.

Comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

Do you KNOW that the Power Supply is good? Tested the three main voltages?
(3.3 Volt power rail
5 Volt power rail
12 Volt power rail )

Need to know how post in a Comment.

Just to ask; What is the maximum rated Wattage of the Power Supply, what is the Amperage of the 12 Volt power rail/s, and what is the manufacturer, and model number of the graphics card?

How do i know were to put and how manny power cables i need too insert on msi 990fax-gd65


Let's take a look at the MSI 990FXA-GD65 motherboard, and I will tell you, AND show you;

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD65.html

To the right under the bold heading - AMD 990FX chipset based,
there are views of the motherboard.
I would like you to click on the second from the Left view.
(Shows a Top view of the motherboard) It is turned to the Right.

Turn the view 90 degrees to the Left, and this is how it will be sitting in your computer case.
If you move your mouse cursor around on the view, you will see a magnified view of what the mouse cursor is on.

I will do better than this in a moment, and you will download the Motherboard Manual.

A) Requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable. The connector on the motherboard has a Locking Tab.
The power cable's connector has a Lock with a hooked end.

To ENSURE the power cable is plugged in tightly to the motherboard, the hooked end of the Lock, MUST be over the tab on the motherboard connector,

Basic example of a 24-pin ATX power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

In the photo on MSI Support, the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector on the motherboard, is on the bottom of the motherboard under the Blue, and Black ram memory slots. It is Black in color.

B) Requires an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable. This power cable provides the 12 Volt power needed for the motherboard.
(DO NOT confuse it with an 8-pin PCI-Express power cable. More on this later)

On the motherboard JPWR2 should be printed next to it.
In the MSI Support view, it is at the top RIGHT corner of Military Class.
Black in color, 8 socket holes.

Basic example of an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out, to replace the 4-pin ATX power cable.
The Yellow wires you see are 12 Volt wires.

The 4-pin ATX power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires. (And two Black ground wires)
The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable has FOUR Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And four Black ground wires)

As more power was required from the motherboard, the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out, to replace the 4-pin ATX power cable.

C) IF, you are using a graphics card, the motherboard requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable ALSO.

This power cable provides more power, to the motherboard's PCI-Express x16 graphics expansion slots, (2)

[ To regress for a moment, you have TWO PCI-Express x16 graphics expansion slots, and TWO PCI-Express x1 expansion slots.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slots are used for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x1 expansion slots are NOT. They do not require additional power, either ]

NOTE*
1) IF, your graphics card requires an additional power cable plugged into it, USE IT.
Even with a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the motherboard.

2) IF, you do not have the additional power cable, from your Power Supply for your graphics card, AND are using a power adapter cable TO the graphics card, make SURE you use the required amount of 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that power adapter cable.

Look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

You will see it has ONE Yellow 12 Volt power wire. (Red is 5 Volts, Black wires are Ground wires)

Using a 4-pin Peripheral power cable TO 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, the 6-pin PCI Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress


Short solution?

A) You have to have an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
B) Use a 6-pin PCI Express power cable also, if you are using a graphics card.
C) Use the power cable/s needed for the graphics card, IF it requires one.

On the first link above to the MSI Support website, hover your mouse cursor on the Downloads tab.
In the drop down list that appears, left-click on - Manual.

Drop down to the bottom file, and left-click on the blue - E7640v3.2.zip
This is a Zip file. After you click on the file name (E7640v3.2.zip), a small window will come up on the right.

Click on Save File. In the small window to the left that comes up, write down the wording at the top. This is where the zip file will download to.
Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads.

[ If you are using a computer with Windows 7 on it, it is
Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads ]

Go to where the file is, DOUBLE-click on it. On the far left side click on
Extract all files. Then click on Next, Next, and Finish.
In the last window DOUBLE-click on the file name. (Next to the Adobe PDF icon)

Need emachines T3304 motherboard connection diagram


The eMachines T3304 Desktop PC uses an FIC K8MC51G motherboard.

First International Computers { Inc}

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/fick8mc51g.shtml

http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554nv.shtml

Click on Product Views, then on - M-Front Panel Connector

The plastic front of your eMachines is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes abbreviated as F_PANEL, or FP1.

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554mvr4.shtml

The above link shows the pinout, of the Front Panel header.
(Note* The Front Panel header may not be Orange in color)

It is the Second header over from the bottom/right side.
The pins are numbered.

Starting on the TOP row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2

Starting on the BOTTOM row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is in use, or active.

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch (Button), IF a Reset switch is used.


C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt power. I believe if memory serves, that it is ONLY used by the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) Pin 10 is N/C. Not Connected.
(Note it states - Key
It shows you where the pins are. What order they should be by the missing pin)

The FIC K8MC51G motherboard;

1) Has a Socket 754 processor socket.
AMD processors fit in this processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_754

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia C51.
It is part of the GeForce 6 series, and more specifically, the GeForce 6100 series,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Using this knowledge you can see what Processors are supported, and what Ram Memory is supported, (And how much)

AMD Sempron, or AMD Athlon 64 processors, with up to a 1000MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB) { That fit in a Socket 754 processor socket)

DDR Sdram ram memory that is 200MHz up to 400MHz.
(PC2100, or PC2700, {333MHz}, or PC3200)

{184-pins. 92 on each side}

OR,

DDR2 Sdram ram memory that is 400MegaHertz up to 1066MHz.
(PC2-3200, or PC2-4200/4300, or PC2-5300, or PC2-6400, or PC2-8500)

{240 pins. 120 on each side}

Your motherboard uses DDR Sdram. (184 pins. 92 on each side)

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

3) Has one PCI-Express x16 slot for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The PCI-Express technology used for the motherboard is
PCI-Express 1.1

HOWEVER, you can use a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

PCI-Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI-Express 1.1

You just will Not get the full capability of a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? No

the sound card is installed into the ISA slot not the PCI slot.
clear the cmos for a minute, set it normal again.
install the sound card to the ISA slot carefully - i mean a working sound card and couple the system unit and boot, surely you will have your sound card working.
