Question about Foxconn G9657MA-8EKRS2H Motherboard

1 Answer

BIOS versions with serious problems (Foxconn G9657MA-8EKRS2H)

Fellows, take a look at my complain that were posted at support site of Foxconn: ---------------------------------- That's the third time I try to get help from you and I'm not joking. Now I found some more people testimonials at internet talking about exactly the same problem I'm having with 3 of the same motherboard. ALL 3 I HAVE BOUGHT FROM A BRAZILIAN DISTRIBUTOR. It`s crystal clear that there is a obvious problem with you latest BIOS version , 631F1P50. First of all take a look at what ftwom says at the pros and cons at newegg ( Listen to me carefully and you are going to see what`s happening. 1) I bought the motherboard (3 of the same model) 2) I build my system (I'm an old system integrator with many years of experience) 3) The original bios version I found is 631F1P36 4) The system boots and works perfectly , setup, etc, etc. RAID configuration and so on. But there is a problem, I need to upgrade de BIOS to 631F1P50 because when I try to install Windows Vista 65 Ultimate it gives me a bluescreen with the message that the BIOS is not fully ACPI compatible. BELIEVE ME! 5) I need to upgrade to version 631F1P50 to install my VIsta 64 Ultimate.And I do it because there is no other option. THERE COMES THE HELL!!!!!!! 6) After upgrading to 631F1P50 the system starts to reboot, wait a few seconds, reboot, wait a few seconds, reboot, to the infinity. I notice something that I had already told you before. There is only one wait to get the system boot normally again and that is to remove the USB Microsoft keyboard connector and use only the PS/2 that is at the same cable Y. And it`s necessary to turn off completely the system and turn on again to get it working. PLEAS I HAVE 3 MOTHERBOARDS TO DELIVERY TO MY CLIENTS AND THEY USE VISTA! PLEASE HELP ME FOR GOD SAKE! --------------------------------------- Now take a look at their absurd answer that is at the link ( Dear, Thank you for supporting FOXCONN product. Pls try another CPU. Because this MB can't work well with Q6600. There are a few bugs need being fixed. Pls try a processor in the list. ------------------------------------- Are there consumer rights at USA that can help someone that bought something to work one way and it simply does not work and the manufacturer says "try another model" ??? OMG!

    That`s not the real solution that has already been done, but thanks anyone. It seams you don't really that much about computers.

  • Sergio Nascimento Oct 13, 2007

    It seams you don't really know that much about computer because what you said is not related to the problem. The CPU is at the list and the problem is not the CPU working is after the BIOS upgrade. The problem was solved some days after I posted this problem, and Foxconn made a new version of the BIOS solving the problem I reported. It all shows that I was 100% right since the very beginning. Thanks for your try, but too distant from reallity.

  • Sergio Nascimento Oct 13, 2007

    It`s easier to say try another model , even when the model you are trying is one of those supported at the site. OMG I tell you because if they corrected the problem with a new BIOS the problem was their problem, wake up man!

It sounds like the Manu is advising you that the Motherboard / Processor combination you are using is incompatible (at this rev of BIOS),  you should therefore be able to return the processors you purchased from the distributor as incompatible/not fit for purpose. (supply the distributor with the information provided by the manu)

you should be able to exchange the processors you purchased with compatible CPUs from the list.

Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest

Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
945G7MA-8EKRS2 945G7MA-8EKRS2H
Update at your own risk..

Exploding paper shredder - very dangerous

I'd call your lawyer and tell him you can't touch any machinery which contains an electric motor because you have been psychologically damaged. Maybe Fellows will settle out of court.

Otherwise ring your local 7:30 current affairs news program.

I don't know why their motor would not be shielded from paper dust.
It is no big surprise that it may be dusty in there.

I'm glad you did suffer any permanent physical damage.

Usb still dont work or appear in device manager

Hi noel06, I have read all your post. In order for you to install your chipset drivers use your CD to first uninstall the the drivers. If you do not your system will crash & burn.
(You were lucky on your first try).


When the CD finishes uninstalling you can than re-install the chipset drivers. Go to Foxconn and download your chipset drivers.
Fill in the three windows as:
Socket 462 A
Click the Search button.
As you will see many Foxconn boards use the same drivers.
As long as your board is within the list (which it is), download Foxconn's drivers (check the date of these files to your CD files.
The web site list newer drivers.

Good luck! Take your time....
