    sure have... but thats not the major problem...

    MY computer does nothing other than fans on when i push the button.... now this is in NO WAY the first CPU i have built, this is just the first time i have ever encountered this problem, unless i could easily determine if it were a bad stick of ram or processor...

    this is not the case. there is no post and no display... thats the priority here... the disk read error is of no concern ATM just merely a symptom

  • PMenace Jul 14, 2008

    Well... I have tried that already... and I can in no way believe that, 5 seperate sticks of ram are bad...

    Any other ideas?

Have you checked your jumper settings on the primary hard drive to ensure they are set to master or cable select

    I would lean more towards the faulty RAM side. I have had this issue before and typically if the CPU is bad the fans won't even start up.

Hi! I just made a cpu swap on my asrock p4 combo from socket 478 - 775, the new cpu is the 570J 3.8 ghz 800 mhz fsp 1 mb chache ofcourse i looked at the manual and changed the jumper settings from...

According to the Asrock site, the CPU you chose should work in your board. You are going to have to check the jumper settings, (see the manual page 11) jumpers J1,J2,J3,J4,J5,J6,J8,J9,J10,J11,J12,J13,J18,J21 only. You indicated that you also changed J7,J14,J15,J16,J17,J19,and J20 since your statement was "i looked at the manual and changed the jumper settings from J1-J21"

Also make sure you do not have a jumper block on the CLR CMOS down near the battery. If you left a jumper on, it will not boot

Also, make sure you installed the CPU correctly and did not accidentally bend a pin on the underside. see 2.2 on page 12 Installing the 775.

My acer has a blackscreen , will not boot up. A disk read error occured

Disk read error indicates your hard drive has failed. You will have to take it in for service to have a new hard drive installed, or perform the repair yourself.

It does not boot but only makes abeep sound when trying to load windows

This issue is due to Hardware. The reason for the same are as follows :

1. I dust accumulation around the processor and CPU fan. resulting in overheating of the system.

2. There might be a lose RAM in your system. A firmly attached RAM is needed for the system to boot up.

3. The hard disk is not firmly connected to the system giving the beep.

4. There might be lose data cable connection(the one which connects Hard disk to Mother Board) resulting in no detection of the hard wares.

5. CPU fan might not be working. Or the processor fan is not working.

Please check for all the reasons for this problem.

If need more help please post back.
