I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it have possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed. I’m attaching a photo, in the hopes that this might expose my problem. So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – the CPU and the memory.

The nforce4ma had standoffs already, I don’t know where I would need spacers, or what “knobs” refers to. I seem to be having the same issue with my Old P4 2. If I connect both the 4-pin connector and the pin connector to the MoBo, the board seems to power up for about 1 second and then immediately powers off.

Uggghh, I was hoping we were onto a solution here However, if I disconnect either the 4-pin power connector, or the 4-pin power connector that is part of evs pin connector, the mobo will power up and remain powered up.

I had pretty much come to the conclusion that my mobo nforce4m- a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last week. It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each one.

I will reply back soon with my success or latest failure Joined Jan 29, Messages 9, 1. I would try putting it in the slots closest to the CPU first. Joined May 24, Messages 1, 0. Joined Mar 20, Messages 10, 2. Yes, I’ve read the mobo manual about 50 times, and that doesn’t really help.

I tried to more changes today – I disconnected the speaker no changeand I purchased a really heavy-duty power supply, thinking that maybe the W PS might be related to the problem. But I suppose if I get a replacement mobo I nforcs4m-a have to deal with this anyway.

I can’t seem to get customer support from the mobo mfg ECSand the supplier I got this board from is horrible about returning calls when I call in, they are always “on the phone with other customers”. Forums New posts Search forums. Joined Oct 6, Messages 1 0.

Viddo I pull the 4-pin power connection off the mobo, the fans spin up and stay up, but I ces the board is getting full power, and I don’t hear the speaker beep. Is it time to return the mobo for a replacement? Joined Apr 23, Messages 3, 0. So checking the connections, I do in fact have the 3-wire lead from the CPU fan going to the 4-pin connection on the MoBo, and there are plastic parts on the connector that only allow it to mate up one way.

ECS NFORCE4M-A – – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2 – nForce4 4X Overview – CNET

Could some sort of memory incompatibility account for nfroce4m-a type of behavior? I then hit the power button and got the exact same results – the fans spin up for maybe half a second at most, then everything shuts down. Has anyone ever seen or heard of anything resembling this? I’m attaching a photo, in the hopes that this might expose my problem. Can anyone offer suggestions!
