Question about Motherboards

Au-31 mother baoards E machine

We have had 6+ E machines with the Au-31 mother boards go down, just won't boot. Not the Disk drives, not the processor and not the power supply.
They were all turned off the way we are supposed to. All other E machines not with the Au-31 no problem. I am using the power supply and the disk drives in a case I had with a new mother board and had to reload system info. on a spare drive to get going again, really need to get the old machine runining. Any Ideas, ps. did try tech support and they gave me 3 pages of try this and that no luck.

    Volto,



    You are so right, I read over the net that capacitors were a problem and in checking I found the resistance of this leg was about 20 ohms. I have not fould the one yet that is bad 9or more then one but that would explain why the rebout was always on, the line never went high. I am going to be using a different mother board so this may be as far as it goes right now, the new one is one I'm using at home so it will be a copy and back up.

    Thanks Again.

Tony, check and see if any of the capacitors are bulging or seeping brown stuff. Especially near hot places like the heatsink, or the memory.

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

1999-2000 compaq processor board is not responding


Get a boot disk and try booting using disk. If it boots the mother board works. If you boot to a:\ prompt then type dir C:\. If your hard drive is working you should see a list of files. if not replace hard drive and load new OS.

The peripheral devices as Hard disk and cdrom is not connected with the IDE cable or has loose contace. Even power cable of devices is not properly done or left out. So you need to check the IO IDE cable connetions and the power cable connections of the devices being connected to the mother board.
