Brand new A-Bit NF7-s2 MoBo. Will not post at all.

  1. PC Had a soltek board & went out. Bought the new A-bit board NF7-S2. Nice board, so I'm told. I have an A-Bit board in another machine & has proven to be rock solid for me & what I do on my PC.

    I install the new A-Bit board & she will not post. So the older Soltek board will not post & now the new A-Bit board will not post. I wonder if there might be some issue with the case to make the board go out ???

    I could really use some assistance. If any of you might be able to help solve the mystery, would love to hear from you. Feel free to respond here or via e-mail. Please mention "Motherboard Problem" in the subject due to a lot of junk mail from day to day.

    It sounds like a common problem with DIY PCs. I'd check any stand-off's shorting the mobo and the case. The best way to deal with it would be to remove everything from the case, and test the bare bone on anti-static bag on a desk. Only mobo, cpu, ram, video and psu.

    BTW, what PSU are you using?

    sorry fo t the delay, it is a 400 watt psu. I have a new board on the way...going to make sure it will post before I mount it & then change over to the plastic stands to mount the board to the case.

    Also, when you install a different mobo, you need to re-install your Windows. It will not run with the drivers from the old motherboard.

    If you can boot it up, press F8 before XP to boot into safe mode, uninstall old drivers.
