Question about Shuttle MK40VN Motherboard

1 Answer

Cmos wrong This board is giving me fits! I got it to see the cpu by changing a jumper on board. I also got it to see the 80gig drive with the jumper on the drive. I am now getting a cmos wrong message. I put a new batt in it it still won't retain the cmos settings. I did flash the bios with the windows utility. Everything seemed to work until I tried to format the drive with fdisk. After that the cmos issue happened. I tried to go in and boot from cdrom but won't boot. It gives me the option of go to setup or load default. If I choose to load default screen will go black. Help! cfuller77

Imperial gl ve 20020930 SPECS


TriGem (Company) Imperial GLVE (Model)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=bph07813&lc=en#N779

http://www.trigem.co.kr/tgservice/econsult/faqProduct04.asp?cls=0&Page=&ID=4237&C1=1&C2=68&C3=359&C_N=IMPERIAL-GLVE

Hmmm, I'm at a stalemate.

Looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset;
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip,

Intel 845GV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Supports CPU's with a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a
533MHz FSB.

Naturally I can't get a clear picture of those jumpers, but they look to be 3-pin.

If we are to assume that the jumper pins set the CPU FSB support, from 400MHz to 533MHz, then the jumper cap is moved from either

Pins 1 and 2, to Pins 2 and 3; on J2 jumper;
Or Pins 2 and 3, to Pins 1 and 2.

I know !O_O!
Sort of a guessing game, as to where the jumper cap goes to what pins, for 400MHz FSB support, or 533MHz FSB support.

Do you have any idea of what the FSB is for the old CPU (Processor), that was in the motherboard? (Or is)

Let's say 400MHz.
You now know if the CPU you are wanting to use, needs 533MHz Front Side Bus support, you need to move the jumper cap to the opposite pins.

What happens if it's wrong? Nothing. processor just won't work.
Change the jumper cap back.

(NOT plugged into power when you do. Also FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)

Yes. I'm 'out there on a limb'
I am assuming after looking at the TriGem support page, for the Imperial GLVE motherboard, that the J2 jumper is used to change the FSB support for the Processor.

It MAY be that J2 has Nothing to do with CPU Support.
It may be that there is no jumper for changing CPU FSB support.

(Cleared that right up, huh? Geez!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

J2 = CPU FSB jumper

Intel d845gvad2,Motherboard getting on green light is coming but without ram board does not giving any beeps and processor fan and smps fan are running but does not giving any display,then which one may be...


you can try taking out CMOS battery from the board and try to reset BIOS jumper on the board. once you can also try removing and reconnecting the CPU Fan and CPU from the board.

All the best

After replacing on board lithium cell, computer will not boot up. Goes through BIOS ok but no further, even tried replacing hard disk and booting from removable media drives (after setting BIOS...


Did you swap the Cmos jumpers from 1-2 to 2-3 to clear Cmos before replacing battery and if so, did you return them to their original position (normal as opposed to clear cmos)? If the jumper is still in the clear Cmos position, the board will not boot.

Try changing the Cmos battery, it may appear to work but may not be suited to the board

Disconnect all drives except the hard drive, unplug usb and sound cables, if fitted, remove graphics card and either test with another one or use the onboard graphics.

Intel E210882 video issues Had a dual vid card...lost it. onboard vid does not work. power supply 100% no blown capacitors I can see. other pci vid cards do not work. no sounds or beeps...just wont work....


The possibility that the video setting in the bios is blocking your video seems to be what could be wrong.
To reset the bios, turn off all power to the board or remove the power cord from the power supply. Find the bios and the jumper next to it, short the jumper for a few seconds, then replace the jumper to it's original position, and then try the computer with a pci video card.

I did some research on the Internet for this board. It seems that the cpu can have video problems, and if that is the case, you will never make video work unless you change the cpu.

Possible fix: Either change the cpu, if that is the problem, or change the mother board to another one which can fit or is a replacement for yours.
you may find a replacement of either one that fits or one which is an exact replacement on Ebay. Do a search for the board you desire. Prices vary, and are not too expensive considering. Prices are from a few $$ to over $50.00. Get one which is known to work correctly and try to get a cpu at the same time, if that is your final choice. One example on Ebay

My suggestion, if I had to do this would be to get another mother board with a cpu which will fit this computer, then re-install what is needed and make the operating system work. A complete restore should not be necessary, if you change the mother board, but many things will have to be re-installed.
A note: It may be a good idea to back up your boot drive on another computer and set it as a slave drive. This way you can save any data which may be destroyed when you re-install, if it is necessary to do that.
Remember, a Windows OS in which you have saved a lot of data to "my documents" will be all removed, and destroyed should you need to re-install any of the operating system. That is why you should consider to backup your original data before starting a new mother board.

I'M TRYING TO SEARCH IN THE WEB BUT I CAN'T GET


Normally Checksum errors mean that the Battery on the board may not be holding a charge any longer. Best suggestion that I can give is to replace that battery. You can buy it in any electronics store. Just make sure to buy one with the EXACT same size. If that still does not work you may ahve to update your BIOS you can message me about that.

Cannot change cmos settings.


Try this.
Open case somewhere on motherboard will be (reset BIOS) or word to that effect. it will be a small 2 pin connector with a jumper on 1 pin connect the jumper across both pins for 30 seconds remove jumper fit back over 1 pin (not get lost) reboot your BIOS should have reset to default hope this helps post comment if does please

My computer won't boot! It keeps restarting before Windows screen.


Make sure the cmos jumper is plugged in. Turn off your pc, unplug the power source. Remove the cmos battery for 30 seconds then put it back. Reboot your pc. Give us feedback! Hope that helps :-)

CMOS checksum bad 0085


the problem might lie in the fact that the mother board and cpu cannot be handled at the speed

or it requires the jumpers to be set by so that the cpu can be clocked properly if you got a mother board spec guide follow the guide for *********** board to set up 3.2

you might also have to set the bios to the cpu speed cause if mother board doesnt do jumpers no more the setting would be in bios
hit the delete key direct are power up this will take you to bios
its not the battery

No boot, no video


there is a jumper near the board cmos battery try to clear cmos by changing the jumper to the other position for some seconds (while power is off) so smos is clear.
if the problem still exist hook up the board spkr pins to the pannel at the board edge if a beep is heard upon starting the board then RAM is either not working or not positioned properly.
one more possibility :
CPU could be not working. sometimes currupted power supply could be causing this.

No screen display at all and no short beep for post-intel D845WN board


Try the old memory back in and see if you get the bios screen showing up, if not find the clear cmos jumper either marked JBat 1, clrclk, clrcmos or similar and try again. If neither your old memory or new no longer allows the pc to boot, i would say that the motherboard has been stressed when you have fitted the memory by forcing a flexing in the board and damaging the cmos chip, only replacing the board can resolve the issue if that is the case
