There could be many things that could stop the board from turning on, Determining if it works is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or otherwise) the CPU, and one bank of memory. (that's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Also, if your going to load a ide drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the five elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, or the motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the first four to see if you get any change. If no change, then I usually get another board that I can test the first four, and make sure that they work. After that, then I say you have a DOA Board

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

From the manufacturer's web-site:


select either the 'P4VMA-M 7.x' or the 'P4VMA-M 2.3' motherboard, and click on 'MANUAL'. Click to download and "save" the '.EXE' file to some folder on your computre. Run that '.EXE' file to create a PDF file in the same folder. Open the PDF file, and scroll-down to page 10, which has a large annotated diagram of the front-panel connectors.

have you had problems with your computer being slow? if this is the case, chances are you have a big virus and the computer can no longer read your hard drive. This will also make it much more difficult to to reinstall the OS. I would suggest taking it to a local computer store, not a box store, and get them to reinstall the OS. It sounds like you may have a boot virus. If this is the case, it also means you will not be able to retrieve any information you had on your hard disk prior to this incident. Let me know if this is the issue. If not, we'll try to figure out something else.

Check the mains power supply cable. Try to Connect with another cable. Or, the SMPS power supply unit may be at fault.

Dear Sir; without an instruction manual of your motherboard, I don't suggest that you, ever connect the wires, or attempt to turn it on, ON GUESS ONLY. From what I see you have all the info you need. Go to Biostar and buy a manual. They only cost about US$ 10.00 and then follow instructions to an iota. You are playing with fire...

If your trying to install it over the current installation then select Format at the installation screen of XP setup. In order to do that you would have to boot from the disc, that way you don't have to load windows. Also when you have completed and installed XP, try to locate some software to detect what drivers you need. I use driver detective and it worked fine for me, or alternately send me a message and ill run you through how to check the motherboard for the version manually.

good day,

have you tried unplugging and replugging the cable connecting from the monitor to the video card? if after trying that it your video card is still not functioning, try installing a separate video card in its appropriate slot and try if this will work. better yet, have it checked by a competent technician in your area to verify other possible causes of this problem.

i hope this will help
