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.

Old hard drive died so now have a western digital wd5000aakx. have pins 5&6 jumpered but cannot instal windows xp as no drive is recognised even after loading the sata drivers that camw with the...


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.

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.

E Machine T6534 fails every 6 to 9 months


This could be caused by the processor or fan,But very unlikely to be the mother board.

Will not boot,bios does not show a hard drive,only two CD drives


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.

THE SCREEN SMEARS NAD SHUTS DOWN


Hi eakesj:
A number of things here should be checked.
First shut down and remove all cards, and power connections to all the drives such as cdroms, hard drives.
The power supply should also be looked at and tested for correct voltages on each wire. This can be done with a voltage meter.
Turn on the power and see if you can get the machine to start to the bios screen. (this will work if you have a video processor on board, if you have a video card, you will need it to use the monitor).
If that will not work, then you have more problems than you thought at the beginning.
If the mother board will not work at this point, then you have problems with either the mother board or the cpu processor. There is a possibility that there are problems with the memory modules.
So, if you have only one memory module, then I would remove the memory, carefully clean the contacts, (a clean pencil eraser can work, if you are careful, and do not press very hard) and then plug the memory back in and try again. Also if you have extra modules of the same type, try one for testing.
If you are still having the same problems, then the mother board or the cpu is the problem. At this point you should consider if you want to continue and repair or buy another mother board of the same size. If you buy another kind of mother board, remember you will have to re-install your operating system over the original one to get the complete setup and the bios to work correctly with it. Many times this can be done, but you risk losing data (you will lose all data in MY DOCUMENTS), and may have to completely re-install the OS. You may want to install the drive in another computer as a slave and back up any data you want to save before you proceed.
If you decide to continue with your original mother board, and still have problems, then the cpu or the mother board is suspect. To test the cpu, either test your board with another cpu which is compatible, or check the mother board with another mother board of the same exact model.
Hope you find the problem.

I have an HP Netserver LH3 with 2 processors, 512MB memory, and RAID 5 array. Someone took the drives out of the machine, and the sides off of the box, and tried to blow the dust out using canned air....


if you removed the drives in a RAID 5 array and did not get them reinstalled in the proper order and your OS was on your array .. your toast ... well leastwise a modest amount of testing will be required ... how many drives ?
if you have 3 .. there is 6 possible combinations; 4 - 15; 5 - 31 ..
If it were me and important data was on the system w/o a backup .. I'd go though the task of trying all possible combinations.
easyiest way .. put a masking tape tag on each drive each with a different number .. create a chart based on the number of drives .. like
3 - 2 - 1
3 - 1 - 2
1 - 2 - 3
2 - 1 - 3
1 - 3 - 2
2 - 3 - 1

go through all possible combinations and attempt to boot ..

if you have a backup and or the data is not important .. recreate the array and reinstall the OS ..

First, let it cool down. Try booting it without the extra ram chip in it. Make sure your laptop accepts DDR2 553 and make sure that the make of both chips are the same. If they're both different it can cause problems.
