Question about Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard

2 Answers

Replaced CPU fan, now it won't boot up.

Well I have done this several times on PC's and never had this happen.
I changed out the CPU fan, PC case fan and CPU fan started when I powered up, but that's it. No video output and it doesn't appear to have any hard drive activity either.
Power supply feeds are all good, no loose cables, reseated CPU several times and the same with memory. There are no beeps when booting either.
I had another AMD Athalon in an unused PC, and that didn't help. So both CPU's work in my spare PC and so does the RAM.
Cleared CMOS according to manual, no help.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
David

    Thanks Styme, I figured as much. Just seemed kinda strange that it died by having a fan put in it. Oh well. I found another K7 board and I am going to try and do a swap without losing all my data on the hard drive..



    Any suggestions on the swap? The replacement board uses different North/Southbride, but that's the only difference I can see from the spec sheets.



    Thanks,


    David

Wish that was an option, I have not yet been able to find one.
It's an ASRock K7VM2 ver 3.0.

If anyone has one, I'd love to chat.

    If you want it all to work like nothing ever occured best thing I can suggest is to use same exact motherboard . Make sure you use artic silver between heatsink and CPU . A good thing also is to make sure the fan is as good or better then the fan you replaced ( more RPM is always a cooler idea )

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My HP desk top shuts down during boot. I've


The CPU cooling fan usually sits on top of a heat sink which is held tightly agaist the core of the CPU by the clasps you refered to. It soumds to me like the CPU has oveheated and will only function for a few seconds. If it's a fairly new CPU, you may be able to buy one online at places like http://www.tigerdirect.com. If it's an older model, you will have to try & find one at places like E-bay.

If you install a replacement make sure the CPU fan/heatsink clamps the CPU flush against the heat sink (apply a thin coating termal paste to the top of the CPU core).
NOTE: If the plastic clamps attached to the motheboard which hold the fan clips are broken - forget it! A new CPU will just ovehat again.

I put the computer in hibernate this morning now it won't boot up. I removed the power supply from the pc to test it. On the 24 pin connector all my voltages were good to the motherboard. I reconnected...


Good work. Reseated memory and all? Try booting with minimum attachments (old known good videocard, no floppy, even just one stick of memory) and/or resetting the BIOS in case a bad timing value was somehow programmed or a soft failure happened there. You can leave the HD detached if you tell the BIOS (once it's sensible) to boot a LiveCD (e.g. WattOS, Fedora 14, etc.) and thus be unworried about the hibernated state coming up with the system minimized as it is for service here.

It's rare to have to reseat the CPU. Less rare to need its fan plugged in to allow booting. It's a good time to flash the BIOS in case a new version is around, too.

Hopefully your newly optimized BIOS will let you come up with a faster machine and make up for your time and trouble.

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot


Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

Boots up but only runs for about a minute. Then fan runs at full speed constantly with no video. Also front panel popwer switch appears shorted. i.e as soon as you plug in the PC starts


Very well could be overheating or powersupply problem. Most Definately Hardware related. You can try opening up the case and blowing air into it from compressor. (Make sure to do this outside away from clean items). Also, check CPU fan and heatsink to make sure fairly clean. CPU fan may also be old and need to be replaced. Don't put case back on and try again. Look at CPU fan to see if moving (or struggling). If computer stays on longer then CPU fan most likely the problem. If off in same time as before then most likely the main power supply problem, in which case the only way to check this is to replace the power supply. Hope this helps, Best Regards,
