View Full Version : KM3M-V mother board still won't run -Help

I pulled the board out as suggested and run it. The outcome was the same.

Press the switch ON, evrything spins for 15-20 seconds and goes off. to restart the system I have to unplug the power cable from the sucket as before. I tried several times - same result.

Does anyone have another solution?

PLEASE dont open several threads on the same subject it'll just confuse people who are trying to help you .........have you checked he manual because I recall one mobo I had which needed a jumper changin in order for it to recognise the athlon cpu's rather than the semprons, (or something like that cant quite remember the detail) what I DO remember is that it woulnd't run until i had changed that 'cpu recognition' jumper.........

Sorry for the new thread, I didn't know that. this is my first time to use this system and I thought I was replying to myself.

the manual actually says that the mother board supports AMD Athlon/Athlon XP/ Duron. from 1100MHz up to 300+ @266/333MHz.
nothing is mentioned about the jumpers.

I have 2 x 512 MB memory and I tried them one each time same result.

just don't wonna give up.

Any idea?

ok you need to do a process of eliminationn theres most likely no other way.......you'll need to swap the cpu for a different one, (known good one), then perhaps swap the hard drive, then the powersupply, in fact i'd start with the psu first i think........process of elimination.......if after swapping all those things out it still does it's little shutdown trick then it could be a bad mobo.....
