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 )

No video


Does it appear that everything is booting up, hard drive spinning? But a blank video screen with nothing at all? I had this several times happen to me and it's always been a bad CPU.

PC won't boot (no signal and no beeps)


check the board for blown capacitors. I have found many boards from power circuits to motherboard with popped capacitors over the past 5 or so years. replace them and tada, it lives again. I've been successful several times with this operation. Please see the picture below for a guide to finding bad caps.

I replaced the heatsink fan it booted up like three times.tryed put load xp wouldnt boot up from cd rom.Iset boot priority to cdrom.I tryed to reset jumper took out bat all night.the first time it booted...


Well, first you should check wether the fan actually starts when you turn on the pc. If it doesnt your cpu will be overheated in no-time, causing the pc to reboot. That fan then probably has the wrong voltage, or requires to much power, which your power supply may not be able to provide.

If it works, you should try to find out how powerful this fan is, meaning how much air it moves per minute. If this fan is less powerful than the previous one, your cpu will be overheated.

If neither of these solutions apply, I guess you should contact your vendor and request replacement. It may be just the fan that's broken.

Buzzer sound from intel d101ggc motherboard


Check the fans in your pc, it sounds like at least one of them isent working properly and your pc gets overheated. When a pc going to warm it gets really slow and hangs.
My guess is that the CPU-fan dosent work properly and your CPU gets overheated, but check all the fans to be sure. The CPU fan runs cantantly, check so it dosent stop now and then.

Good luck

No beeps on boot up with asrock mobo? help plz


While booting BOIS goes for POST check for detecting the all the hardware .

Disconnect all the connection to DVD, HDD, FDD from MOBO.
Rmove all RAM and start the ssytem from testing RAM Serviceability. If you listened a long intermittent beep place a single pices of RAM in MOBO ( repeat test with other RAM also).

Other wise your video card is unserviceable, if you have any addon plugins like NVIDA graphics card you can check

1. check the cpu fan is properly working with normal speed..

2. go to bios setup and restore all settings to default.

3. if windows start and problem comes after some time , then it might be virus. so, go for a virus scan.
