Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a P4M800PRO M V1.0A. I have removed all RAM and not getting any beeps. I have disconnected HDD and Video Card and no beeps. Have cleared CMOS and no beeps, replaced Motherboard Battery and no beeps. I am getting a small click sound every 3 seconds and the HDD light flashes when this happens on the front of my case. Would this mean the Motherboard is faulty and need to replace?

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/ boot up a computer 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 they could be 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 electrical 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 even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap hope this helps

Pc boots but no display. tried a new video card, still wont work. ram or motherboard?


Hi.
To start the troubleshooting,
Do one thing.
Clear the cmos.
To clear the cmos, remove the battery and the cmos jumper. You will see JCC on the mb and it is attached to pin 1&2
You can Short it to pin 2&3 or remove it completely.
Don't forget to remove the power-cord from the power supply while clearing the cmos. together with the cmos bat & jumper.
After that try a different ram and a different vga card.
At times dust get accumulated in the slot that prevent firm contact with the vga slot or the memory bank.
Use a clean paint-brush and blow away the dust on the card, the mem and also the slot in the mb.
Fix it firmly.
try this
If you need further assitance revert back
Good luck

Ive got a long continual beep and it emits orange light from the front and back of the computer how am i to fix it?


Turn the computer off.
Unplug the power cable.
Remove the video card.
Remove the RAM.
Re-insert the video-card, ensuring that it is "seated" properly.
Do NOT re-install the RAM, just yet.
Connect the power cable.
Turn the computer on.
If you get a different "beep", the lack of RAM is the problem.
If you get the same "beep", the video-card is the problem.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cable.
Re-install one stick of RAM (two if it is RAMBUS/RDRAM).
Reconnect the power-cable.
Turn the computer on.
If it beeps "normally", then the not-yet-installed RAM is the problem.
If it still "long-beeps", turn the computer off, disconnect the power-cable, and remove the RAM, and insert the "other" stick/pair of RAM.
Reconnect and start it up.

If still a problem, change the video-card.

If not the RAM then it's your Video Card, try to clean it and properly connect.
For possible if still not open then put only one memory ram to make sure that the problem is taken with another parts inside.
And last try to reset the BIOS.
Good luck!

My pc doesn't boot anymore.


This code usually refers to a Video card or RAM issue. Try reseating both the video card and then RAM to see if it fixes the problem. If not then try removing the video card and rebooting. If the system starts without the beeps then you'll know the video card is bad and you can replace it. If it still beeps then try removing the RAM one stick at a time, rebooting after each removal. When it boots you'll have the bad RAM stick isolated and can replace. Hope this helps.

Single Beep on boot... repeats after 2-3 seconds, no video


This is a tough one. On some system bioses one beep means a problem with the RAM. On most it means a succesful POST. Are you getting any video? Have you tried booting to a boot disk? Have you tried a new hard drive? Have you tried to clear the CMOS? Good Luck!

Hp motherboard startup problem!!


hmmm my sussgestion in yourr case is that, don't attach all things at once. do the following step bye step.

Step 1). Attach SMPS (power supply to the board), Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)

Power on and watch/Listen carefully:

Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then your CPU and board is OK

Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.

Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.

Power on and watch/Listen carefully.

Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.

Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.
