Question about Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (683562472159) Motherboard

1 Answer

System dead except for one light

My system seems to be dead. When i hit the power on button i get nothing. the only light that works is the +5vsb. no response at all. i removed part by part to see if there was a short or anything. i couldnt find a short. i checked all the cables, re-seated all the plugs and still nothing. i thought it could be the power supply that went bad but when i used a different supply on the same board all i get once again is the 5vsb. Do you think i should just go and invest in a new motherboard ?this is my second foxconn board, the first i recieved got on fire the first time i tried to boot it up. so i'm not concerned with warranty replacement as i will never use a foxconn motherboard again. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps your power-on button is bad. Try a different power on button.

try cold reset by removing the battery including power adapter then press power button for approx. 20 secs. then plug your power adapter then press power button again. press the numlock/ capslock button if there is response showing that your motherboard isnt dead yet. please check also when fan is running momentarily then suddenly stops then post another question here.

Dell T3500 Power button blinks yellow 3-5 times and the 1 and 3 numbered lights blink as well - then they go off together and computer will not turn on

Blinking Amber - System fault error condition including Power Supply (only +5VSB working), V reg (Voltage Regulator) failure, missing or bad CPU etc.1 and 3 LED"s indicatesMemory configuration error.
Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

I was working in a computer with the same problem, when you remove the keyboard and the keyboard cover at the right side of the power button you can see an small plastic cap with two wires, is the num lock led, when the wires are under the top cover and the screws of the keyboard or the cover are too tight the wire is damage and make contac with the earth shuting down the power supply, check the wires, repair if broken and take care that its not under the top cover when you assembly.

When pushed the on button i got lights and fans sounds but the hard disk seemed not running and no further response from any keystroke or mouse click

if I understood correctly, you are trying to power on your laptop and nothing happens.

assuming that it worked before, try the follow:
1. try to turn it on with the power cord connected- if it works it means that your battery is dead
2. take out the battery and try to power it on with only the power cord
3. put back the battery and see if it works

Can't turn on computer

you may try:
1)open cover take out all exterior devices like cdrom/HD/PCI card/AGPcard then power on, go next if nothing change.
2)open cover see any fan turning when power on , if nothing run, check biger power supply plug pin(Ps-on and 5Vsb)all at 5V are OK, less than 3V or nothing is power supply box damage. change new power box to test. still same trouble go next
2)open cover you can see a LED light on on the motherboard
and check power on button is working well(switch).
3) check all biger capacitor top, any one bulged shows motherboard DC damage and need to repair by PC specialist.
4) nothing change above, you have to change motherboard.
