Question about EliteGroup V7.5A (K7SOM+ V7.5A) Motherboard

3 Answers

I have a problem with my m/b k7som+ 7.5c. When I press the pwr button everything seems ok, all fans are working properly and I also hear the HDD spinning sound. However there is no POST beep or anything else. The monitor exits the sleep mode (the light turns on but nothing appears on the screen). How can I detect the problem?

    I did all these suggestions (taking out peripherals and RAM, battery for one minute etc but nothing happened) The video card is on-board so I cannot replace it. I also tried another HDD but nothing. I cannot unplug the CPU because it is soldered on this m/b. However thank you all for your time and precious advises!!

Hi Konstanti952,

When you started to turn on your computer and work ok and don't give any abnormal beeps (POST) into it. Motherboard works fine as well as components. You can actually test this by detaching your hard disk drive to motherboard. If system works and give display and it's simply looking for hard disk (Boot Failure). It must be your Hard Disk Drive spinning/singing problem. Normally, this hardware component doesn't give powerful sounds, of course you can hear them but in normal mode only unless your hard drive works overload or in full capacity. Sometimes, users may hear knocking or clicking sounds coming out from the hard disk in form of rhythmic sound that starts and stops at random time intervals. It could be the sign that the hard disk is getting old and might quit on you sooner or later. There are several causes of clicking/spinning sound of hard disk drive but most of them are mechanical nature, an electronic failure will usually fry the logic chips instantly, with no warning whatsoever. It is recommended to look for a warning either in the hard disk drive section of the BIOS or during the POST. You can enable SMART to be able to read your hard disk status by main board. If sound you hear is more like a grinding one, this could be the worst scenario. Backup your data immediately if you are still able to access data on the disk. And it might stop functioning anytime. Hard disk drive occasionally produces a spinning sound when it searches for a file which is heavily fragmented. This is caused by the spinning platters as the read-write heads zoom back and forth to access the different sectors where the data is stored. It is important to differentiate this spinning sound from the clicking sound. This spinning sound can be reduced by defragmenting your hard drive from time to time. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Try reseating the RAM and test again. If a no go, check that the RAM is supported by your motherboard as there are some configurations of RAM that the motherboard may not support. If it is supported and you are still stuck, take out the CPU and then reseat that to ensure a fresh connection to the pins. Then turn the computer back on and test. If a no go, check if you changed any jumper pins on the motherboard. I suggest changing them back to the default configuration if you did.

If still no go, I would send the motherboard back or get it checked on if still in warranty.

Have a great day!

There are a few procedures you can possibly try before replacing components.

I HIGHLY recommend you unplug power while trying these steps

1) Unplug power and remove CMOS battery (usually a small silver circular battery) on motherboard for 1 minuted then reinstall battery and see if it boots up.

2) Re-seat all RAM memory chips. If it doesn't help, then try booting the system 1 memory chip at a time, to rule out a bad stick of RAM

3) If you have a separate video card (not onboard video) then try re-seating it

4) unplug both data and power cables to all internal components (hard drives, CD-Roms, Floppies, etc) and also internal cards and see if it boots. If it does then reconnect one device at a time til you find the culprit

That's pretty much all you can do without swapping out parts.

I hope this help and I wish you luck!!

I don't think you know what you are doing. No computer will boot without memory! And no mo bo will work without the 4 pin connector being attached to mo bo along with the 20/24 pin mo bo connector..
Listen, keep it simple and just plug in another known working ps to see if unit works. If it still does not work, then your issue could be corrupt bios, bad hard drive, corrupt OS, bogus peripheral, bad memory.

Toshiba Tecra M3 will not boot, no video, pwr + hdd light on

If not beeps you didn't hear then it's your Motherboard. But, there other problems aside on it.
Laptop maybe have a problem with Power Connection, see to it that your Laptop Power Adapter is supply exact voltage to your Laptop, low voltage power also may cause not to give power your laptop sufficient, if it is does.
And if none of this then it's your Motherboard.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

Nothing happens when I press the power button. No

What about the power supply? I bet it's supply's issue. Otherwise make sure that PWR button wires are connected properly and to the correct terminals of the motherboard

You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.
