    Default Foxconn motherboard RC4107MA

    I ordered a motherboard bundle* from Novatech 16th March, order number 3980033.
    *Motherboard Bundle = Foxconn motherboard (RC4107MA) bundled with an Intel Dual Core 945 3.4GHz LGA775 1024Mb DDR Memory, Heat sink and fan, stock code MBB-DC9451.

    Based on the technical advise received I also purchased from Novatech a 24 pin HIPER 425 WATT 18db Silent PSU.

    After examining the goods I found that the processor cooler was not seated correctly. I did my best to resolve this problem and then installed the MB bundle. The systems started, recognised the DVD player (XP disk in), attempted to boot from the DVD and then immediately powered off.

    On restart I was able to press delete and enter the CMOS set up but power off still happened after a few seconds so I could not check settings. I proceeded to minimise hardware, change/swap leads, reassemble system, but all to no avail.

    The MB Bundle was returned to Novatech and a new bundle provide, 30th March 2007.

    This time I did not install the MB. Instead I laid it on the bag it came in, connected the screen, keyboard, mouse and power cables and then switched the power on. The processor fan turned and the MB immediately started to beep continuously and did nothing else.

    I then disconnected all peripheral items except the power supply and used a metal-tipped screwdriver to momentarily bridge the two power switch header pins.
    Again the MB immediately started to beep loudly and continuous.
    Next I removed the memory and re-seated this. Same result.
    I then removed the battery and replaced this. Again the MB immediately started to beep loudly and continuous.

    Am I unlucky or can you advise likely problem based on these observations and beep code.



    How can/should this be remedied

    I think you may have fried your Motherboard. :shock: :shock:

    agreed. anti-static bags by design are non-conductive on the INSIDE. its definately not best practice to use the metallicy (technical term) surface on the outside.

    however, if you are getting a beep code, then the board is functioning to some extent. The question is, what are the nature of the beeps?

    For example, continuous beeping, where all the beeps are the same length and same distance apart indicates RAM generally, whereas a group of 8 beeps in 2 small groups (3 quick, 5 slow) is usually indicative of graphics memory.

    I am sure danno posted some beep code meanings many moons ago....
