There are two or more slots present to install ram on the motherboard.
It doesnot matter how many slots you are using to install ram just keep this in mind that the amount of ram which you are putting in must be supported by your PC.
Hence you can use one slot to install ram.

Most modern motherboards dont have removable BIOS modules. However they can be updated in the Windows. Visit the manufacturers website and download the appropriate BIOS update. Here is the link.


In the above picture i cannot tell you exactly which is the BIOS chip but it is surely among the three big chips near the RAM slots.

check your RAM and your VGA card (if any). If the ram is not recognized by the motherboard, there is be no display at all. Also the VGA card.

So, remove the ram, clean the ram slot on your motherboard s there might be dust on it, check your VGA card if it is well fixed. Also check your VGA cord, is might be damaged, Check the pin on the cord to be sure its intact.

Do general troubleshooting your the motherboard and there should be a difference. But if there is not difference, then I think its high time you got another motherboard.

Lastly, test all the components of the motherboard with another motherboard in other to know precisely where the problem is coming from.

Be more patient with the motherboard and you will definitely get a solution.

Good luck.

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.

Maybe you overlook to "save and exit" the settings. Also do check the connection of the cd rom or its read capability. Do check also the disc is bootable when the CPU doesn't find boot command and system on cdrom it will find to next drive.

Hope this help.

Did u dismantle the processor too? Check the processor´s vent, is it well placed? System turns off when it doesnt, cuz processor overheats really fast if its not well attached to its vent.
Try checking the RAM too, if u are using more than one card, check one at a time.

The ECS PM800-M2 only supports SATA 1.0 hard drives. If you are using a newer SATA 3.0 hard drive, there is a jumper on the hard drive which has to be set to SATA 1.0 in order for the VIA 8237R chipset southbridge (which Is on your ECS PM800-M2) to recognize the newer SATA 3.0 hard drives. This Is applicable to all motherboards with the Viatech PM800 / 8237R chipsets. Note: the location for the SATA 1.0 / 3.0 jumper varies on each brand of hard drives. Also check If SATA Is enabled In the BIOS and select IDE mode.
