    I have put in a working PCI card and still no video. I RMAed the unit back to NewEgg and the new unit works. It seems that the comments I've seen about PCChips MBs are true. There are lots of DOAs. Mine has now been running for a week without trouble. The original MB failed because of lack of ventilation. Needless to say, I added case fan on top of the one on the processor and in the power supply.

    Xtom, What do you think of FoxConn MBs? or better yet, what brand of MBs do you recommend? I'm not looking for bleeding edge, just reliable boards that will let me run a few server and workstations for my business on the cheap. I provide SOHO network services and want to keep a variety of systems running for testing, education and emergency replacement for clients. Thanks in advance.

Ok well the simplest answer is to get ahold of an old pci (not pcie) video card and plug her in. If this doesn't get you video I don't know what will. If you're not getting vid with the pcie slot it could be disabled (idiotic I know) in your bios.

    Well we do say, "Stay Away from the PCChips motherboards, hard drives, ram, and ide bays."


  • Kristoffer Martin Sep 19, 2008

    Stay way from Foxconn as well, they are worse than PCchips. You'll RMA your *** off. (and before you ask the same with Jetway). Good motherboards are elitegroup, Asus, Intel, and MSI. Always read the user comments too. They tend to be the truth about the motherboards. As for making a server, I'd actually go with a MSI 915G (which is what I'm running) its not that far out of date, is capable of great expansion, and has IDE Raid functionality for backing up your system. 

    However, Newegg has alot of great options for server based motherboards. In the 75-100 dollar price range they currently have Asus and Tyram. Now I know Asus is superb but I'm not so sure on Tyram. All of these are AMD Opteron based processor class. You can get these fairly cheaply as well. You'll just have to do your own research as to which motherboard is for you. 

    If it is a server you're looking for, pay attention to processor functionality (dual slot versus single cpu slot, will it run on just one slot even if it has two. Ram expandability, PCI slots etc. Pay special attention to SATA versus Legacy hard drive connectivity.)

Update for SiS 2615 Display Adapter to load windows XP pro


The PC Chips MB PCCHIPS SiS746FX M848A V5.0 462 motherboard does not have onboard video, correct? So if you can obtain the make and model of your video card, you can then find the Windows XP drivers online for download. Then you would be able to provide said drivers when the "system asks you to update SiS 2615 Display Adapter driver"

*Another quick fix would be to use a different VGA card, if you have one available?




*Now, I have never been prompted to update display driver before or during a windows installation or update. So that step I would require a little more detail on. I have only been prompted for mass storage drivers (as seen in screenshot).

OK, this is for all the idiots who reply and offer NOTHING. You need more info, model and ver? HE ALREADY GAVE ALL THAT INFO.
Type "M848A v5" in google and you will see it is a PCChips mobo AND the manual is here:
http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfilepcc/manual/848Av50.pdf
BUT the manual DOES NOT HAVE THE PIN-OUT, so the manual is worthless...
Here is the pin-out:
(2)(4)(6)(8)
(1)(3)(5)(7)(9)

...and thanks to guntotenmadm
"""
Aug 28, 2009 - The pin layout on the MB are color coded. There is green, orange, pink, and blue. I'll start with the green pins 2 and 4 these are for the power led wires, bottom pin #2 is the + pin (your green wire). Pin #4 is - (your white wire). Now the orange pins, pins 1 and 3 these are for the HDD led. The bottom pin #1 is the HDD + pin (your red wire). Pin #3 is the HDD - (your white wire). Now the pink pins, 6 and 8 these are for the power switch. Pin #6 is the + pin (your orange wire). Pin #8 is the - pin (your white wire). Now the blue pins, 5 and 7 these are for the reset switch. Pin #5 is the - (your white wire). Pin #7 is the + (your blue wire)."""

Cmos clock will not set !


Is the cmos clear jumper in the wrong position? if it is it will drain the battery and mess up the clock, You may have to flash the eeprom with a newer version BIOS obtainable from the manufacturer, check their website on this to see if it is a known issue ( I have seen this on multiple other manufacturers main boards). If this isnt it it is possible you have a bad clock chip

Video problems with wow


Sorry, but you need to provide more details about your system before a relevant answer to your question can be posted.

  • Is this a persistent problem? Does it happen after rebooting? Every time you play WOW? When did the problem first occur? Does it happen when WOW is the only program running? Etc.
