DFI LanParty 875P-T issues

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
On behalf of a poor guy who has to waste his time tonight studying for semester finals rather than solving hardware issues (read: wowza), I'm starting this thread with the hopes that someone may have had a similar issue and can help him with his problems.

He is currently building a system around this mobo and a P4 640, and everything started out fine. During the course of installing XP, he noticed his mouse wasn't working and figured the connection was loose. He unplugged the mouse, and plugged it back in, which resulted in the system turning off. Upon restart, nothing happened other than a small red light in the lower left part of the mobo came on (it appears from the manual that this light is the PCI standby Power LED). He tried changing PSU, mouse, keyboard, and RAM with no success. He also cleared CMOS and tried booting the system outside of the case. The best success was the red light mentioned above and the LAN power light.

I think that more or less sums up his issues tonight. If anyone has any useful suggestions, they would be much appreciated. I'm sure his studying would go a lot smoother if he wasn't worrying about a potentially fried system.

Is this a newly built system?

If it is tell him to check all connections
Check cpu cooler and cpu paste connection and installation

Those are usually culprits - it sounds like his comp froze up maybe due to heat (see above) or potentially nonstable. Although im guessing he never got around to overclocking this system yet.

Yeah, it's a newly built system, and since it only got halfway through the XP install process, it was definitely not yet overclocked. I think he checked all of the routine little things that can cripple a system such as the cooling options you suggested. I let him speak for himself on that, though. I'm sure he'll be stopping in during study breaks.

Using the front case usb ports? Ive heard from a few people that when you hook up usb ports to the board using the available pins, the first time you plug something in etc, the bios chip fries. I guess its just a general board bug that was never fixed.

I had a front USB port issue a while back and lost my Southbridge as a result. In this case, I believe he was using a PS/2 mouse, though I suppose it could have been a USB one. I'm almost certain he was using the back ports, though.

Good thoughts, guys. Keep 'em coming.

First, thanks T for making this thread
Ok, well, i sneeked out early this morning to talk... Ok, to answer a few questions
I checked my CPU and waterblock right after this happened, I thought it was a dead CPU at first, but everything looked normal (took the cpu out, looked at it, and looked at the motherboard pins, they were all good)
I checked all the connections, PSU + HD stuff like that, but there all in firm and I don't think the lights would be on if the PSU wasn't plugged in correctly.
I am not using the front USB ports just the rear ones on the mobo.
I also tried using that monitor LED thing that came with our mobo BigV, but that thing doesn't light up.

When I get home, i'm going to rebuild my computer, make shure all the connections are in snug, call DFI and see if they can troubleshoot if it doesn't work. If any of that doesn't work, well i might have to RMA with DFI..

Any other suggestions would be sweet.

I always hate to say this - but Ive seen it too many times. It sounds like a dead motherboard. . Try setting the system out on your desk with the essentials plugged in to see if you boot.

Try just one stick of ram with your cpu, mobo, videocard and cooling. If that wont boot up, you can try changing out the videocard and ram but I think its a dead mobo aswell. You have tried clearing the CMOS right? Make sure to unplug all optical drives and hdds.

I tried resetting my CMOS to no avail, Also i tried the onboard powerswitch for the board, but that didnt work either. I wouldn't think the board would be dead if it had the LAN power light and that red LED light on. Ok, ill try all the basics and see if it will boot. Hey val, when your computer is off, is that light red on the lower left hand part of the board? or is it green?
