SOURCE: X7DAE at the time of boot stuck on logo

the broblem is probably your keyboard, since del doesn't work then this indicates that your keyboard could have some wires cut from inside the wire casing due to various reasons or the keyboard plug isn't well attached to the wires or have some bent pins.

my advice : go buy a new keyboard.

SOURCE: The mother board will not post nor will the

Is the on/off button on the front of the computer-casing broken?
Take a volt-meter, and run a continuity-test.

Are the two wires from that button both properly connected to a pair of pins on the motherboard? If you disconnect the wires from those pins, and use a metal screwdriver to very briefly "short" the two pins, to simulate the pushing of the ON/OFF button, does the motherboard post? Do fans start to spin, or at least "twitch" a few degrees?

Have you tried a different power-supply?

Is there any lamp on the motherboard that lights-up anytime that
the power-supply is connected to AC power? Is that lamp on?

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
or it might be your graphics card make sure its securely seated and there is no dust built up
on and around the graphics card hope this helps

Need Working X5DA8 Motherboard

Skip the Supermicro board. The cheapest used X5DA8 available at the moment is $800. If you need a dual Xeon capable motherboard, go with Asus Z9PE-D8 WS SSI EEB. It's cheaper and runs faster DDR3.

SuperMicro X7DB8 - upgrading from two dual core to two quad core CPUs , carefully installed the quad cores and duct taped it all back together ... no post , no anything ... havent connected a speaker...

SuperMicro Support > SuperMicro X7DB8 Server Motherboard > Main Support page,

Motherboard User's Manual download page,

[ MNL-0832 (English) ]

Dual Intel 64-bit Xeon LGA 771 Quad Core processors, or Dual Core processors, at a Front Side Bus (FSB) of 1333Megahertz, or 1066MHz, with a system clock speed of 333MHz, or 267MHz."
(266MHz geez)

Intel 5000P (Blackford) motherboard chipset.

BIOS should automatically recognize the new processors.
Sometimes you have to restart the computer, and it may be up to 4 times.
Do agree with Jose though, and you may have to go into BIOS Setup, and set the parameters for the Processor (CPU), manually.

1) What is the sSpec number on the top of the processors?
2) Have you been FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions?

3) You are scaring me. What is the reference for the DUCT TAPE for?

4) No post?
Better make sure the Power Supply is good, and I mean test the three main voltages. Do not assume because fans spin, or LED's light, that the Power Supply does not have a weak voltage power rail.
(An economical multimeter around here is $5 to $12)

Does the Power Supply have enough power for TWO QUAD CORE processors?

Looking through the charts at the Core technologies listed, you can see SOME of the models can use Up To 150 Watts EACH.
(TDP. Thermal Design Point. W = Watts)

Means to me you better have at least a 500 Watt power supply, and I could be seriously underrating.

Better than an intelligent guess,
[Yeah, okay. Maybe 'intelligent' is going overboard, lol! ]

5) Have the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable attached to the motherboard, (By the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector), and the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable? (Top right corner with motherboard installed in case)

6) Suggest speaker for BIOS Beep Codes, otherwise you are 'Flying Blind".

7) What kind of Thermal Paste are you using, and how did you apply it?

Not trying to be an ar-se, but if you do not answer all of my questions, do not bother to post back.

Post in a Comment.

Supermicro x6da8 won't post. Can't get into BIOS either.

disconnect all power connections to the board and take the battery out for a few minutes and then put it all back and see if you can acess the bios. If you still cant, try a bios flash and if that brings you no joy, board is done

Supermicro X6DAL-TG boot problem

I have 3 of these boards; however, they all have the Nocona Xeon with a Front Side Bus speed of 800MHz. The manual does not say anything about using a 533fsb. A second thought was if your power supply is an ATX with a 24 pin power connector and two +12 connectors one 8 pin and one 4 pin? The manual states all three need to be connected for the Xeon Processor.

All major motherboard manufacturers offer this support on most boards. The em64T indicates the processor is capable of running 64-bit operating systems and software. Do you already have a processor and if so what model is the processor? Based on the processor model you'll need to select a motherboard that has the correct socket type and bus speeds.
