Question about Asrock K7VM4 Motherboard

1 Answer

Video failure I believe my K7VM4 to be failing due to age. After a while running the display will disappear, but I can tell that everything else inside the box is running. Have swapped display adapters (nVidia FX5200) but result is the same. Do you have a recommended or suggested "drop-in" replacement? for this micro ATX board. I have read that the K7S41GX is good. I really don't want to have to change components and spend hours (days) configuring. Thanks Peter Rawlins

    Hi Dileep,

    Sorry I have been a while to reply.

    In actual fact I have tried swapping video display adapter cards, but the symptoms are the same. My question comes down to this really : which is the easiest microATX M.B. to replace what I believe to be an aging ASRock K7VM4? I think th ASRock K7S41GX looks suitable but would like other peoples opinions.

    Thanks

Green line on lcd monitor screen


Unfortunately, a solid line that runs across an LCD screen is due to failure of the display panel, and the only way to repair it is by replacing the display. There is a large amount of electronic driver circuitry built into the display panel, and when something fails it can leave a row or column constantly lit (white or some other color) or constantly dark. There isn't any way to get at that internal circuitry to fix it, so all you can do is replace the entire display.

My board does not turn on and its beeping. Ive counted 7 beeps. i tried replacing the memory with known good ones but still the beeping persist.


MSI states that 7 beeps means "Virtual mode exception error "


Explanation: Virtual mode is one of the different modes that the processor can run in. The system is reporting an error when testing this mode.
Diagnosis: There is a problem related to the processor or motherboard. Note that this doesn't mean that the processor is necessarily dead, since the system won't boot at all with a dead processor.


Not knowing the price of either your processor or the board it is hard to say what to do for the best

Good luck

What is U16 on K7VM4 Rev. 1.03 MoBo?


Changing the CD54/74HCT365. M is rated 25 on quality and MT is 100 and M96 is 2500 and probably cost a little more too. But, what bothers me is that something else could be wrong and driving it to burn up? Asrock k7vm4 Rev. 1.03 16 Ghz and K7VM4 is the BIOS

My computer doesnt boot


Hi Ashish

There is no problem with ur system board.
Actually you are getting this problem because of Monitor problem.

The possible cause would be:
1. Your data cable connecting your board failed.
2. The display IC of your monitor failed.
3. If you have Video card then remove video card and try connecting data cable to monitor port other than ur video card.

most probably u are dealing this problem due to failure of ur display IC.
Troubleshoot first by connecting other monitor with ur system if available.

gimme ur acknowledge by rating me

Thanx

Your list of suspects:

1. Processor is cold dead.
2. Power Supply has got a problem. Just powering a fan is not a guarantee that it is powering everything normaly. Try a different one as you test agai.
3. I suspect your MoBo is good, but try a different video card also with your new DDR.
4. Do you hear the HDD cranking or whining when you turn on the PC? Keep ear near HDD and listen. It it whine-starts, it's a fair sign.
5. Try a different monitor while you test these.

Let us know what you find in clear detail.
