Question about Chaintech Slot 1 CT-6ATA2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard Problem I have a chaintech 7aja2e motherboard, and when I start up I have nothing on the screen, the monitor stays in standby mode. There are no beeps when I start up, the cpu fan comes on, it checks the cdrom drive and shuts it off, and the floppy light stays lit up. I have checked the ram, the video card, the monitor and the cpu. I was just wondering if anyone could throw some ideas my way to see if I could get this hunk of crap running, thanx.

    This is the first time using this motherboard, a computer place around here was going out of business and the owner gave it to me, along with 4 new hard drives, some new ram and cdroms and stuff, so I thought I would throw a comp together. I tried all of that stuff already, it won't post even without any memory, I've tried without the harddrive. I know the monitor is working, it's the one I'm using right now on a different computer. I have tried replacing everything with parts that I know work and I still get nothing, no beeps or anything, monitor just stays in standby.

Were all these working fine together before or did you just replace something? Did you try connecting the monitor to another PC? Try the pc on another monitor which works. try unplugging the video card and plugging it back in. try without the memory, it should post and beep looking for the memory. try without the harddrive.

Is my computer in standby mode?

Make sure you have the cable that plugs into the back of the computer from the monitor screwed in tight. Also make sure the cable on the back of the monitor is screwed in tight and also that the power cord on the back of the monitor is pushed in all the way.

I'm almost certain you're not in standby mode. Does the computer stay on when you get the no signal message? Do you hear the fan blowing, do you hear the disk drive spinning? If not, I think your system has completely shut down. I'm thinking maybe a virus or some hardware/software conflict is stopping it from completing the boot cycle.

Try getting into the Bios or System Setup to see if the LCD Stays on and the computer stays on. Turn the computer off, then hit the power button to turn it back on. Look at the lcd screen and it will tell you what key to hit to go into the Bios or System Setup. Go into it and let the computer sit for 10 minutes or so to see if it shuts itself off.

If you are successful with the computer staying in the Bios or System Setup lets try getting into Safe Mode and see what happens. Turn the computer off and hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select the Safe Mode option and let the system boot up. Safe mode will look different to you. The icons will be bigger and the lcd screen darker, but that's normal. If you are able to see the desktop in safe mode just try opening up MS Word and maybe let it sit for a few minutes to see if it shuts off.

If safe mode was successful, then try booting it normally. If it fails, we know we've got an issue.

My chaintech skt600 bios doesn't show an option for 8x agp. How can I fix this?


The motherboard has a 4X/8X AGP port. Probably, it _automatically_ detects an 8X video-card, and uses it in 8X mode.

Screen goes into standby mode after a few seconds. Screen will not stay on. Started after the computer was on and coming out of standby mode. Computer works fine on external monitor.

Depending on the options you purchased the laptop with, it either has an integrated video circuit into the motherboard or a plug-in video card to the motherboard. If the laptop works fine with external monitor, your motherboard or video card is defective. Your LCD display is probably O.K.

Monitor stays in standby

The different messages from the two monitors are because they just operate differently. There is no video signal from the motherboard. Something is preventing the system from starting up. This can be due to a bad power supply, dead processor IC or failure of the mother board itself. If you don't have access to spare parts to try so you can isolate the cause, a service shop should be able to check it out for some small diagnostic charge. Then you can either have them do the work or get the replacement yourself and install it. Parts just plug in, so once you know what needs to be replaced it's not difficult.

Hi, check the cable from your computer tto monitor, then check that the video card is installed properly.
If these fail your video card is most likely dead and need to be replaced.
