Question about Biostar A770E3 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard (4712795652215)

1 Answer

I just bought a complete new system, including a770e3 mobo, athlon II 3.2ghz x 3 CPU (am3), EVGA GTX500ti video, 2gbx2 Gskill 1333 memory. I am currently using a 430w antec PSU. The CPU is seated and with HSF installed, ram is seated and latched, Video is seated and powered (PSU has 6-pin aux). The computer will not POST. the case fans, CPU fans, and HDDs spin up, the KBD flashes once. No video. no beeps. I've tried with no HDDs, no memory and with memory in different slots, and with no video card, reseated CPU with no results. I have no spare parts in which to swap to narrow down the trouble spot. what can you recommend? -John

Check bios settings to insure the right video section is enabled and or try using hdmi cable and hook to a tv that has hdmi and see if you get video.

Is the Am3+ socket also possible for sapphire AM3RS890G2?


am3+ socket is what the socket is listed on the motherboard, so if you have a CPU that fits only AM3+, the CPU wont fit it unless directed by the CPU manufacture seeing that AM3+ is for AMD processors only if you have a older AM3 CPU it might fit the AM3+ motherboard if listed, this paticular model only lists AM3 and fits Sempron, Phenom II X3, Athlon II X2, Phenom II X2, Athlon II X4, Athlon II X3, Phenom II X4, Phenom II X6

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

What motherboard will replace a msi k7t turbo2?


This is an obsolete part; as such, you will have a hard time finding it at any retailer, whether brick and mortar or online. However, all hope is not lost-try E-bay

http://computers.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=socket+a&_sacat=1244&_trksid=m270&_dmpt=Motherboards&_odkw=&_osacat=1244

You will have to look for a board that supports S-Dram memory, because that is what your MSI K7T Turbo2 uses.

My advice would be to skip this entirely; I would replace the whole board/CPU setup, and pick up some memory. You can get an Athlon II quad core and mobo for $165.98 USD (Asus /AMD). Pick up 2 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM for $56

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134790

and you essentially have a whole new system for $222

Just my opinion on this-I don't think that spending the amount of cash you would have to in order to replace an obsolete board is worth it.

You might try this, instead:
AMD Athlon II x2 Regor (2.8 Ghz, dual core) @ 56.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103688

ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD mobo @ 59.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148305

Total $174.97 + shipping USD

Given you 3 ways to go and my advice-good luck!!

I bought a MSi 790gx-g65 mobo and an AMD Phenom II x4 940 which is am2+. Everything I've heard about this mobo is that it's am2+ and am3 capable, will the Phenom II am2+ I just bought work in this mobo?


Yes it will, but you'll need to update the bios to the latest one in order to be sure the processor is recognized. The 790 chipset will make that board an excellent performer with the Phenom 940. Give it as much dual channel ram as you can afford, up to the max of 4 gig for a 32 bit O/S or 64 gig for a 64 bit system.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

Memory +cpu upgrade


No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.
