No maxboxman they are not referring to the jumper pins on the harddrive.

Hi to you also maxboxman,

The reference is to jumper pins on the motherboard. There generally would be a jumper sitting on Pins 2 and 3 probably, and needs to be set to Pins 1 and 2.

(Pins 1 and 2 are the Run mode, Pins 2 and 3 are for BIOS reset. Just a General example, and does not apply towards your motherboard

[Inside the plastic jumper is a metal shell, or flat piece of metal. This metal creates contact between two pins.

However I'm looking at a PDF motherboard manual for the AOpen AX34-U motherboard, and no jumper pins are shown on the 'motherboard map', nor are any listed. (Anywhere in the manual, to include the BIOS section)
Just details how to enter BIOS Setup, and possible BIOS updates.

BIOS for AX34-U,

Click on the blue down arrow next to - select a product.
You have to wait for the page to load, watch the green progress bar.

After the page loads click on the blue down arrow to the left of Select a model.
Scroll down to AX34-U, and click on it.
Same thing, waiting game.

When this page loads scroll down to the heading BIOS.
To the right click on the download icon above 202.0 KB

Click on 2 at the bottom, (Page 2), and the English version of the motherboard manual is listed in PDF form on Page 2.

I don't think that board actually has a tamper alarm in the bios, password security yes but I saw no mention of a tamper alarm. Besides, a tamper alarm won't stop the pc from booting, it just lets you know that the case has been opened....sorry. I think you likely have a mainboard/ram issue.

First thing is to clear the bios. Here's how. Right beside the floppy connector, there is a jumper labeled 'JP14'. Please do the following

  1. Turn off the pc and remove the ac power cord.
  2. Remove the atx power connector from the mainboard (from power supply).
  3. Locate jp14 and move the jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Put jp14 back to pins 1 and 2
  5. Reconnect the atx power connector.
Or you can just unplug it from the waal and remove the bios battery for an hour.
sa code
Try to fire it up again. If it still won't boot, then let me know the number of beeps it makes and the pattern to the beeps ie: one long beep then another long beep or 1 long beep then 2 short ones. These beep are actually telling you what the problem is.

Hope this helps! Post a comment and let me know how you make out.

You're right. Your board is shot. Replace it.

It's a problem with the motherboard. Check out this link

1 Long Beep: Memory problem
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort related to the system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

if you installed windows with out formating the driver then nothing would change.

AOpen AX34-U... • Answered on Jul 17, 2008


Hi terry44,
Try this first. Open the case. Please ground your self by touching any metal surface. Than place your hand on the hard disk drive. Do not hold the underside. Start the PC & continue to hold & listen. You mentioned the system runs for a short time, let’s see if it will crack & shut down while you’re touching the drive.
We want to see if the system still shuts down & you hear that crack. If it’s the hard disk drive you will feel it as well as hear it.
If you feel like the crack came from the hard disk drive than replace the drive because its going to die. Your thoughts about the board could be correct. With the case opened you should be able to pin down where the crack is coming from.

Let me know if this helped & what you found.
Get back to me.
Good Luck!

Mike

NewEgg.com still carries 4X/8X Radeon 9250 cards in the $30 U.S. range. These will perform better than your GeForce 2 but your machine is still going to choke on the new computer games.
The PCI Express based video cards on the new systems outperform the older AGP cards by something like a factor of 10.

u change u r mother board early

AOpen AX34-U... • Answered on Sep 18, 2007


two possibilities, if you are in possession of the motherboard drivers you will need to install them as windows xp will be using generic ones and may not be suitable for your board, also try installing in a different usb port. The other is that the drivers you are using will probably be win 2000 and in your case it wont work with XP, so go to your printer manufacturer web site and download and install XP drivers.
