Question about AOpen (S661GXM-U) Motherboard

1 Answer

The desktop will not boot. When powered on, the fans start, and the optical drive cycles repeatedly. Nothing on display - light on display stays yellow. I have tried unplugging rhe CD drive. No dice. I have tried unplugging the hard drive. Still nothing. It seems as though it is not getting far enough to notice the keyboard either. Lights on keyboard do not flash. I am concerned that the mother board is toast. no foul smell coming from machine. How can I test the motherboard?

Bios is checking to see if the components are recognised.. usually keyboard is "seen" first. I have to concurr with you that given the things you mention, the mobo is indeed toast, especially as there are no beeps on boot up that would indicate a specific error

Acer M1100 Desktop w/ a different HDD and Optical will not boot


Disconnect the hard drive and dvd from the motherboard
Power on
If you get video and cmos access power off and connect dvd
repeat and connect hard drive
getting video and cmos access has nothing to do with the hard drive...with no hard drive or optical drive you still would have access to cmos

Getting power but wont boot up or anything


pull out everything in the computer except what's required to boot...so any pci cards or video cards (if you have onboard video). you can also try pulling out the ram (while unpowered AND unplugged) and then booting to hear beeps...if you pull the ram out and the computer doesnt make a sound, its probably a bad motherboard and needs to be replaced. if you hear beeps, try replacing the ram or disconnecting other parts...like harddrives, optical drives, modems and what not.

There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up? Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board. Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
