Question about Abit IC7-G Motherboard

1 Answer

I have an Abit IC7-G motherboard. Machine has died with no reaction from pressing power on and reset buttons. Power cable in is OK and when connected, green light behind IDE1 socket lights up (which says to me not a power supply problem?) but otherwise nothing. Is this a dead motherboard or could it be a battery/fuse problem? Many thanks

Most obvious problem would be the power supply. The green LED only indicates that the 5V rails os working enough to power the on/off circuit on the motherboard. First disconnect everything except the mother board from power supply. Then try switching on again. If this does not work, then disconnect the power connectors from the motherboard. ON the big power connector (P1) there should be a green wire with two black wires either side. This is the power on sensor wire. Use a paper clip or similar bit if wire to short out the green wire with one of the black wires. This should start the power supply and the fan in the PSU should spin. If this does not work then the PSU is definately faulty. If it switches on when there is no load connected then it is probably only slightly faulty (not able to provide sufficient current). Since the green LED is coming on, my guess is that you have bad capacitors in the PSU (they will probably have domed tops instead of flat). Try a power supply from another PC if possible.

How do I reset bios on this motherboard? I've tried to find a user manual to download without success.


This link to Abit will get you the manual for the IC7-MAX3 board, which may what you need.

If by resetting BIOS you mean clearing CMOS, just remove the battery.

Hi,
If you can locate the chipset on the mainboard for the sound card.
then download driver from other manufacturer ..
You will see for eg Intel ac97 or realtek audio something like that..
For your mainboard configuration it may be
Realtek Audio driver

OK

IC7-G MB after changing bios memory to F1 on reboot getting


You'll need to reset the Bios.
Take the battery out inside, it's usually on the lower right of the motherboard, it looks like a watch battery.
Unplug the computer and press the power button to get rid of any extra juice from your power supply.
Wait about a minute.
Put the battery back in and plug your system in, the reset should be complete.
Some motherboards have a pin setup to reset the system. If the jumper is in (oox, x being the free pin) for example, then just switch the jumper to (xoo), turn your computer on...nothing will happen, all good.
Put the jumper back from (xoo) to (oox) and it should be reset.
Keep in mind, doing this a lot isn't good for the system. Make sure you know how to switch up the options in your BIOS.
Good luck!

Try http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=IC7&fMTYPE=Socket%20478&pPRODINFO=Driver
However the IC7 does not have an integrated Vidoe card so you will need to go to the manufacture of the AGP card for this
