If the processor is considered the “brains” of computers, the motherboard should be considered a “heart” of life on the PC. As a component that bears the “heavy burden” just a little damage can make the PC will not work.

In the early generations of computers, components such as processors and Ram directly attached to the motherboard without being able to be changed or added again. Semcam model is called the backplane. The new design is modular which allows the replacement of some components that are easily attached to the motherboard, while providing flexibility providing opportunities for improved PC technology itself.

However, convenience is always menggandeng risk. So it is with the motherboard. Since the motherboard to become a “hotbed” for the main produce optimum PC, we are faced with complexity, complexity increases. Let’s point to some examples. Increasing need for powerful processors make motherboard design should follow the demands of the development of the processor.


The need for faster data transfer requires a motherboard design is constantly changing. Recent developments such as technology-Fire perkembangan Ware, USB 2.0, RAID System, Smart Card, Secure Digital, wireless, all converge on the same land: the motherboard.


Although for now the technology is not all popular, but to give the attractiveness of a product motherboard makers were no less resourceful. They provide a space abuzz upgrade it, without having to include it when it was manufactured in bulk, to keep him still economical.


The number of chipset on the motherboard is a benchmark for technical support are also increasingly making the user confused to choose which is best. Not finished with this one issue, we are also faced with many concerns, how to overcome the problem occurs bilaman PC motherboard as the heart, little problems can make the PC crashed.


It is precisely with the number of options, the first key that we still do not get lost delam wilderness art of architecture is to understand the mother board, and to equip themselves with practical skills that qualified. Here are the steps.


Repair or Replacement

The decision to repair is determined by the degree of damage to a motherboard. Meanwhile, measures the level of reimbursement depends on the carrying capacity of the technology or the economic capacity of your motherboard in the computer goods spending. The problem is what if the motherboard is still relatively new, while we are not able to detect damage or specify a way out? follow the first two steps before deciding to buy a new one.


Preliminary examination:

* Check all connectors. Of course, this step is necessary to ensure that no one ever connector is disconnected or not plugged in correctly.


* Check that all components are attached. It is important to mendeteksi, whether the installation of the processor, RAM, VGA Card is correct or not. Also to ensure that the physical IC-IC on the motherboard is not damaged or loose.


* Check the power source that goes through the power supply. To be sure, first check the power supply from the powerline, then check the power output on the power supply wires using a multimeter. Make sure that the output of each cable is in accordance with that recommended in the manual.


* Check, is there any foreign goods which interfere with the line motherboard. Wires, screws, dirt, dust can also affect the breath of life motherboards. These disturbances are, in addition to data traffic is interrupted, when the strategic position could cause a short circuit short-circuit alias.


* Check the jumpers, DIP switches, or pin-pin control every feature carefully and correctly. Make sure that you are referring to the manuals do not use rote knowledge. Incorrect settings can make your motherboard does not want to live.

* Check the motherboard sections are attached to the casing. Short circuit due to locking without an insulator between the casing, screw the motherboard will make the electricity stops every time the power button is pressed.


System does not work after replacing the processor

This incident is very often the case when you want to upgrade or downgrade by using a processor that has a different front side bus. For example, when you were with Pentium 533 MHz FSB you replace it with an air-FSB 400 MHz, while your BIOS settings to the system is still working at 533 MHz FSB.

So that the system would work again, there are two ways this can be achieved. The first way is to enter the system BIOS and change their use of the FSB is 133 MHz 100 MHz widened. This is a note that the system motherboard and processor you can still tolerate the use of the FSB is much higher than used.

Another way is to clear CMOS. If this step is already done. Go into your BIOS menu and make sure the FSB is already used to working in accordance with the FSB on your processor. This step is guaranteed effective to overcome the problems of this kind.

System does not work after replacing DDR memory modules

There are several possible causes of an issue that may be Why did this kind of problem occurs. The first is the compatibility of the motherboard that is used to the new memory is installed. Cause there are two, namely the problem of memory chips that are used or problems encountered type of memory used. Some motherboards require strict secar yang chip type used. If it is not appropriate, the motherboard will not detect any memory that results in no operation of the system. While some motherboards do not want enable memory type single side or double side.

Again this motherboard compatibility problems on installed memory. If the problem is a memory chip, BIOS update can sometimes be a surefire solution.

The second possibility is the type of installed memory has a CAS latency lower than the previous memory CAS latency, while the latency is still in BIOS, setting the CAS-2. the only way is to do a reset or clear the BIOS. After that go to the BIOS menu to set the work on memory latency and change in accordance with its memory capacity. The safest is to change the latency is working on a CL-2, 5.

System does not work despite all the power has been installed

It could be the problem arises because some of the causes. First check if there is electricity that goes on the motherboard. It is important to make sure there is electricity flowing on the motherboard. On most motherboards, an indication of the electrical current flow is indicated by LED lights are lit. If the lamp is not lit, there can be no electric current flows.

Second, the possibility of power supply are not that great alias does not have the appropriate personnel. The only way to change their power supply is that you have the better.

A third possible cause of their installed graphics card is not right. This is usually happens when you recklessly put add on graphics card. To fix this, you can fix the mounting position. Try to keep the position perpendicular to the motherboard.

The fourth cause of which is often not pictured is the destruction of the power or connections that connect the front panel with the power button on the front casing. It’s cause you can not turn on the system even though all is installed correctly.

System suddenly hangs when in overclock

There are several causes for this problem. The first cause there are some components that require a higher operating frequency. This example happens to AGP or PCI installed. To do this, you can get into the BIOS and increase its frequency. This, too, with a note if you use a motherboard that supports it.

The second cause is the lack of voltage is used. For that, you also get into the BIOS menu and make raising the voltage, either the processor or memory. But it is risky to depend on the ability kaerena and durability of motherboard, processor, memory, or graphics card is installed. This kareena voltage rise will affect the work of some of the attached peripherals.

System does not work due to the hard drive not detected

This problem often appears on some motherboards. Own fault occurred rather than on its motherboard, but the data cable you use. These errors usually occur because you use a secondary port and not the primary port even if you do not use it for CD-ROM or other drives. On some systems, the motherboard will not detect because of the use of such data cable. Solutions that can be done is to use the main port on the IDE cable to secondary hard drive temporarily to CD-ROM drive or the other.
System does not work when the CPU fan cable is not installed
This is common on some motherboards that have a sufficient level of safety tub. At such a mother board, the system will not work if the fan cable is not attached to the corresponding pin is also the CPU fan. It is intended to ensure that the fan works to protect the processor from overheating. Well, if you do not install the fan cables to the power pin fan, or even put on one pin, the automatic system will not work. The only step taken was to install the CPU fan cable to the appropriate pin.
When booting the system disk fail state
This problem occurs if you do not have a floppy drive in the BIOS while this feature is enabled. The only way is to enter the BIOS menu and turn off the features of this one.
System does not work all three primary graphic adapter is replaced
This is common on motherboards that have onboard VGA feature. When it will be replaced with an add on graphics card, either PCI or AGP berebasis. When the setting is not installed in accordance with real conditions, the system will not be able to boot.

The only step that can be taken is to do a clear CMOS or even if you unplug the CMOS battery to clear CMOS jumper is not there. This is to force the motherboard back to the default position.

After booting can be done, enter the BIOS menu and change the primary graphics adapter setting according to the type of graphics card installed. When you installed the AGP-based graphics card, setting this feature to add on AGP.
