Question about Foxconn 661MX Motherboard

1 Answer

No boot, no video

Just bought the board. Had to break seal on anti-static pack so I assume it's new. It's supposed to be. Installed P4 2.4a CPU. Two sticks Kingston 512 333 ram. Board powers on (CPU fan running) but no post codes and no video. I can feel HD spinning up.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your reply. I have already cleared the CMOS. And the post codes show no error. Nothing. No beeps. It appears that the onboard video isn't working. I have tried a ATI Radon9000 AGP card as well as an Orcid PCI video card, both of which I know are good. Still no video. But I can hear the A: drive squawk and feel the HD spinning up as in a normal boot up. Front panel leds are on
    too. I bought this board at auction as new. And appearently it had never been opened. But I have a real "I got burned feeling".

There is a jumper near the board cmos battery try to clear cmos by changing the jumper to the other position for some seconds (while power is off) so smos is clear.
if the problem still exist hook up the board spkr pins to the pannel at the board edge if a beep is heard upon starting the board then RAM is either not working or not positioned properly.
one more possibility :
CPU could be not working. sometimes currupted power supply could be causing this.

Memory Problem


bad sticks there,
BSOD screens?

finding good memory for such and old PC is not easy
did you buy them direct from Crucial or Kingston, ? or off fleabay.?
memory must match the MMC, chip, memory managers.
and the specs are not trivial. at all.

if it runs on the old sticks and not on the new,?
why wonder why, ( answer wrong sticks or bad sticks.)


#1 reason for this is memory
#2 is XP (and bad drivers to it)

bsod-nqnsjpy5mxjchhsl14xy30wr-1-0.jpg
buy from Crucial?
btw, why not test the sticks 1 by 1,
see which one is bad, and if all are identical (new set) then
all can be bad if using wrong sticks.
speed (too slow, faster is ok)
density rules, lots,... the older the CPU the worse this gets.

HP dropped all support on A-nnnnn PCs
so the pages showing all memory that work is gone now.
leaving only top memory makers are authorities no same.
I say ask them. in all cases this old PC.

I tried to upgrade my acer aspire one A150 to a 2 GB stick of ram - didn't work so reinstalled the 512 stick I had (SHOULD be a total of 1 mb counting the 512 onboard.) It is NOW only recognizing 512. ...


Try swapping the ram sticks with each other and see if it still reports 512. If it does...then it sounds like you damaged one of the seats for the RAM somehow. Did you have any static shocks occur?

If new processor supports your old motherboard then you will upgrade system with your old motherboard.

If its not supported to new mother board then you have to buy new motherboard to upgrade your system.

ECS PT800CE-A 3.4 P4 HT CPU and DDR400 (PC3200) problems


I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.

A7N8X-E Dlx, 3200+, Kingston Valueram, setup problem.....


there are two parameters that control the cpu speed, one is fsb and the other is the frecuency of ram, make sure your cpu supports what you have and i dont remember where exactly are the options in the bios, but i had the same motherboard and i know they are arroun there just make sure to select 200 mhz for your memory if it is 400 mhz ok? and then make sure cpu supports fsb 400 so your fsb must be 400 in the bios... if you change somethings in the bios and after saving changes and rebooting the motherboard does not respond you just have to take the lithium battery off for 5 minutes and disconnect power cables or move the cmos jumper to reset position and you will be back in zero to keep trying, you cannot damage anything by just trying, but never try to give more tension to ram or any part.

Kingston valueram 512mb


How do you mean nothing is showing up?
The fact you can get into BIOS usually means that something is right.

This board can go upto 2GB RAM

look at the kingston configurator page for info and compare it against the memory you bought (exact part numbers are a must). With Windows VIsta Ultimate you should be using 1gb Sticks not 512.
