Question about AOpen s760GXm-US Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer won't power up

Yesterday I got a new computer case so I transfered all the components into the new one, plugged everything the same way and when I powered the pc a black screen came on and said I think HLNDR not found. I manage to reboot and have the windows screen, the keyboard and mouse worked and about 5 min. later nothing worked, everything stopped. So I turnes off the pc and powered it back up and now nothing comes on the screen and it's like the pc is dead, the fans work but that's about it. If you have the wiring diagram for an AOpen S760GXm-US it would be very appreciated. If you have any clue of what's wrong please tell me!!! Thank you very much

The wiring isnt the problem i dont think, as the system wouldnt have started in the first place, the message would have read NTLDR not found, this means that the processor cannot find the system files to load windows and that there is either a hard drive fault or a system fault. If you can get into the bios you need to change the first boot device to cdrom and start the system up using your XP disc and do a system repair.

How do I connect the pwer,reset,pwr led, hdd led on packard bell iextreme m5730 motherboard, serial number PTU300X0109251007D


They have a crappy website. I couldn't even find a motherboard diagram in the manual. You can determine which is the power pins by trying plugging the power connector in on each set of pins and pushing the power button until it starts. It needs to be plugged in when you try pushing the power button of course.There would be around 10 pins in two rows the power pins would be on the same row. they should be near the edge of the mother board and usually the power button pins are on the row furthest from the edge. I can't guarantee that though

Power button not turning computer on


this is most likely a short in a computer component, You need to unplug everything from the computer incl CPU, Memory, Add on Cards, Hdds, the lot, just have motherboard plugged in and push power, if it powers up (there won't be a pic but you will know it's working) start replacing parts one by one until it won't start and that is the faulty part. If it does nothing with just motherboard plugged in the motherboard is at fault and needs to be replaced, If you have had the motherboard out make sure no of the metal mounts in the case are shorting out anywhere under the motherboard as this will also cause the same fault.

I built a custom computer about a year ago, i do not have room in my current case. I was wondering if i bought a new case and moved all the components to the new one, will i lose anything that is on my...


Hello,
As long as you are doing a complete swap from the current system to the new (empty case) you will not loose anything, just be very careful when transferring the motherboard and expansion cards. Use a static guard wrist band if you can get one to avoid shorting your components.

How to build a or assemble a computer and troubleshoot?


Building a computer will require: a motherboard, a processor, memory, a video card or motherboard with onboard video, a sound card or motherboard with onboard sound, at least one hard drive, a CD or DVD drive, a case for the computer components, a power supply, fans to cool the computer, an operating system, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, 2-3 hours to assemble the computer.
You must ensure that all of the components are compatible with one another. After receiving the parts, lay everything out on a large, clean surface. Make sure you are grounded by touching a metal surface; this will prevent the transfer of static electricity to your computer components.
Typically, the steps to install the components are as follows: 1. mount the power supply in the case, 2. mount the motherboard 3. lock the processor in the socket on the motherboard 4. insert the memory sticks into the slots on the motherboard 5. mount the processor fan on the processor 6. insert the video card into the applicable slot on the motherboard 7. insert the hard drive into a hard drive bay in the case, 8. insert the CD drive into a CD drive bay, 9. mount any fans you have to the fan cutouts on the case 10. connect all applicable data cables to the CD and hard drives 11. connect all applicable power cables to the motherboard, video card, processor, hard drive, CD drive, and any other components. 12. connect the front panel USB, power, lights, and reset connectors to the motherboard 13. close the case 14. connect the power, monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse to the computer
Because this process is rather involved, I recommend following a guide such as this one: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how-_build_silent_gaming_pc
It details the process, includes pictures, and even provides a list of compatible parts.

I have a PC that died completely - not reacting to the power switch at all. Over the last few months I've replaced the PSU and, more recently, the MOBO and CPU, but it's still dead. I ordered a new case...


connect the positive lead of a multimeter to one wire from the switch, connect the negative lead to the other wire. Set the meter to ohms. Push the button, does it go to 0 ohms? Let go of the button, does it go to infinite ohms? This should tell you if your switch is working without having to take it out of the case.

Okay , so there are some steps to figure out what is wrong with your external.

Firstly , if your computer makes a sound when you plug in your external , go to Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management , and see if your external drive is listed here with your local drives. If it is listed , right click on the drive and change the drive letter to make it appear in "my computer".

If your drive does not make a connection sound when connecting to your computer and also does not show up , please follow the next step.

Remove the hard drive from the casing if possible and install it in your computer case or another external case.If the drive works , the problem is with the casing and you can ignore the drive.

Now , if the problem is with the casing , there are still 3 possibilities.

  1. The USB cable between the drive and the computer may be damaged.
  2. The circuit board which connects your drive to the interface of the external may be blown.
  3. The power supply (if applicable) may have a blown transformer.
The latter is the easiest to diagnose , does your external light up at all when you plug in the power? If not , then this is probably your problem. On the bottom of the adapter is a label which you will be able to use to have a new adapter made at your local electronics shop and this will cost about $30 max. They will also be able to test the adapter with a clamp meter to see if this is really the problem and this should be free.

The second component you want to test is the USB cable. If you have a printer , swop out the cables and see if your printer functions normally. Most externals use the same connector so you should be able to test it in this manner. If the cable works go on to the last step. If the cable is defective , replace it with a new one which you can find for about $10 at most electronics and chain stores.

The last component to test is the circuit board. This is a bit of a grey zone as you probably won't be able to spot the blown component unless it failed really badly. With the casing already opened , locate the external's circuit board and check to see if you have any blackened components or fluids leaking from some components. If all the other components of the external worked perfectly , then this is the faulty part. It is not really economical to replace the circuit as most of the time it is out of production by the time you need to replace it and it still costs a lot even if it is available so if your drive is working perfectly when connected via sata or IDE on your computer , the best is to buy a new casing and place your old drive in the new casing.

A casing costs about $50 and you could get it at most tech shops and big chain stores like Best Buy.

I hope this solves your problem and please reply if you need more help.

Kind Regards

Re-installation trouble :(


the problem wasnt with the case,rather with the motherboard.common cause is power leakage in the Earthing Point of the power source.get the board checked.also make sure all the components like memory graphics etc r seated properly.

did u make sure the new case has the same power rating on the power supply?

No power


Well try laving the power of the drive for about a day so the device can reset. Before using it again turn off the computer and plug the hard drive into the computer and then turn everything on at the same time. If nothing that please post for more help.
