Z50-70 - Buying a new/used working motherboard

Q: Z50-70 - Buying a new/used working motherboard

Hello everyone, I am looking to buy a new motherboard for my Z50-70, as I see this as my only option for my SSD/HDD to get detected in BIOS. I have gone through many lengths to get it working by WINtoUSB and reflashing the BIOS, but to no greater avail.So now I am looking for a new motherboard and it is virtually impossible to find one, Lenovo/Medion directed me to their site and it was out of stock. I have scoured eBay, I could not find one.My question is: Does anyone have a spare/not used or a Z50-70 lying around they would like to sell? I live in Denmark. Best regards,Rasmus.

i want to buy a GOOD motherboard,

a fast, and able to overclock motherboard my budget is $55.. do you know a good motherboard that will do the trick?...

For a 478 socket, DDR, 1 AGP 8x, and all possible pci slots, (up to 7 or 6 slots)

oh yea.. and im new to overclocking, can someone hook me up with overclocking guides, or hints, and warnings please?.. thanks..

A:Buying a motherboard

Your budget is too low for the things you described. Here's one that would do the job quite nicely, and it's not too much more than your budget:

IMO - You really don't want to go super cheap on your mobo. You'll regret it later, especially if you're pushing your components hard by overclocking.

A:Buying a new motherboard

From the sound of it, you may need to upgrade more than just your motherboard. You could just get another one but it would have to be second hand as you wont be able to buy a brand new motherboard that would work with your 1Ghz Processor.
The cheapest upgrade I can think of that would give you a decent upgrade for the money would be the following: (You didnt say if you were UK or US based, sorry)
1 x Socket 939 motherboard with an AGP socket (you should be able to get one off ebay but make sure it has IDE hard drive connections and not SATA) it should come with an integrated sound card anyway, so you wont need to buy a separate sound card. (Approx $20-30)
1 x AMD Athlon 3200+ Socket 939 (approx $30)
(Optional but maybe necessary - New DVD RW Drive, approx $30)

You will be able to use your New Hard drive and RAM with the above items and although it should give you some better performance without breaking the bank account. $50-60 for motherboard and processor together, or $80 if you get a DVD RW drive too.
It's possible that the old hard drive is causing problems and because its so small, id be tempted just to remove it.
You can also upgrade your graphics card as it is ageing, but if you are on a budget, you dont have to do that - its probably not causing any problems for you.

first of all please excuse me if this is in the wrong forum and if what l say loose you as l am new to all this. l want to build a computer that has more balls than a wild pack of dogs. l have been told that if l buy a supermicro X7DBE+ Motherboard With Extended ATX which runs dual processors, front side bus speeds of 1.333Ghz, Front side bus uses a 64 bit wide 1333 Mhz data bus that transfer data at 10.7 Gb/sec for a total bandwith of 21.3 Gb/sec. Total memory bandwith of 32.0 Gb/s for DDR2 667. And build the rest up from the motherboard l will never need to upgrade.This all means nothing to me so l thankyou all who help in advance. Also does running dual processors mean that you will have twice the speed.

A:Need help on buying new motherboard. PLEASE!!

I think you might be asking more of your $200 than is possible. After buying the CPU you will only have $40 left over. You will not get a good complimenting motherboard for the processor with that much left over. Plus you need to remember that you will most probably need to update the memory, and possibly the power supply in the case. You will more than likely need to expand your budget or go to a more discounted processor. Look at and the Celeron socket 478 processors. A drop below the P4 but a better buy at the same speed. With money left over !! YOu could get a nice motherboard and processor and stay below $200 maybe have enough left over for memory. As far as M/B go I reccommend either ASUS, Gigabyte, or Soyo. They have done well for me in the past, stay away from ECS have never seen M/B with more problems than those seem to have.

A:Need help buying new motherboard


1. I don't think you will be able to keep xp installed and just switch motherboards, you probably will have to plan on just formatting(back up first) and doing a clean install. What do you mean by the ide controller has you confused? What are you wondering?
3. No, all atx aren't the same size, but the maximum size is about 12x9.6". My chaintech vnf4ultra nforce4ultra 939(I'd recommend it, but you already have an awesome agp card ) mobo is "atx", but actually like 12x8" or close to that. In smaller atx, like mine, they are just missing the outer edge of screw mounting holes. Your case should have the right standoffs already. I didn't use magnetic screw drivers, but it sure would have been handy at times. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry.
4. Using your existing install, will probably be problematic, if it works at all. I would think that you could use you existing xp cd. I mean it isn't like you'll be using it on 2 computers, you just want to transfer it to your new system. You might have to call microsoft to see for sure though.

My laptop has been overheating. I've tried literally everything from checking for viruses  to reapplying thermal paste and I can't fix it. Here is a link to my forum post about it.  But that is not the topic of this post. I've decided to replace the motherboard thinking it may be a problem with the processor or some other piece of hardware. I found this forum post about replacing the motherboard on my model laptop. I actually found a motherboard with a higher model processor (AMD A10-5745M 2.1 GHz) for $50 cheaper on ebay and I wanted to make sure it is compatible. The motherboard product number is 763424-501. My laptop's serial number is 5CD426279F and product number is G4V48AV Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello everybody.

I am planning on getting a new CPU and motherboard this Christmas. However, I'm a little low on budget. Could you guys please recommend a CPU + Motherboard combination at under $200 ($150 if possible)?

My current specs are:

Motherboard : Asus P5B-MX / WiFi-AP
RAM : 2 GB (Transcend)
Graphics Card : XFX 9800 GT
Processor : Intel P4 2.93 GHz
OS : Windows XP Professional

Would it be a good idea to go for the AMD X2 6000+?

A:Buying New CPU And Motherboard help At that price, wow, why not. It certainly would give your old P4 quite a thumping!

Is your copy of XP Pro a retail copy? If not and it's an OEM copy, you might run into trouble trying to migrate it to a completely different machine. Since, cost is an issue, this might make the Q6600 in the old board the best choice.

A:buying motherboard

Yes, the board will work.  Given that replacing the hard drive on this model requires a system board removal, if the drive you have is original to the system, consider replacing it along with the mainboard - you'll be doing all the labor anyway, so you may as well take care of the potential for a hard drive failure at the same time.

I am looking to buy a new motherboard, reason i want to do that is to get 8gb ram atm my motherboard only supports 4gb ram.

never bought a motherboard on its own before so not sure what is best and what ones i can have, i want a motherboard that can work with my ram/graphics card/hard drive etc so i dont have to buy everything again.

been looking at that one, fairly cheap and good reviews. if you know a better motherboard at a better price link me to that,

do i just buy that motherboard and connect my other hardware and its good to go? or do i have to do other stuff?


A:buying a new Motherboard.

No way we can answer that since you haven't told what hardware you have. What processor, memory, graphics card, case, etc do you have now? What motherboard do you have now?

Do you have a 64-bit version of Windows to support more than 4GB of RAM?

You may need to reinstall Windows if you replace the motherboard.

Personally I wouldn't buy an motherboard based on an old 700 series chipset.

A:New motherboard worth buying?

hard to say

I don't know what your system has, but there are things to consider, If you want better game play, yeah, you'll want a mobo to handle AGP/PCIexpress, etc., but then- will your power supply handle it? RAM? CPU?

Just changing mobos alone involves quite a bit- new installation of operating system, which means you want to back up your current data, and then you start upgrading video cards, almost everything else will probably need at least SOME upgrading/tweaking, so there are lots of things to consider.

Some of the guys around here who know gaming will be more help than me, but I'm sure there'll be more to it than just a mobo change. Good luck!! :knock:

"Dual" in the model name means it supports either PCI ex or AGP graphics, also it supports dual ram technology which you will have to install in identical pairs.

Hello, I have recently decided to get a new graphics card for my HP Compaq Presario CQ5320Y. After opening it up I only see one PCI slot and 2 black slots that are unkown to me. I have done a little research and some sites say that there are PCI express slots but i am not sure which ones those are. Anyways after looking around, I decided on this card but am still not sure if its the best i should get, an suggestions? I am looking for a card for mostly gaming and am willing to spend up to $100 - $150 tops. This is the one I have decided on so far. Galaxy Technology 512 MB DDR3 GeForce GTS250 Graphics Card 25SFF6HX1RUI (sorry about no links unable to post links or images for now)

A:Deciding on buying new graphics card and need help with motherboard slots

The HP Compaq Presario CQ5320Y does have 1 PCI-E x16 slot and 1 PCI-E x1 slot. The best option for you would be to purchase an ATI Radeon HD 5770. It will give vastly superior performance compared to the GTS 250. However, for either card, your PSU will be insufficient. Presently your system has a 250W PSU. You will need one in excess of 400W with sufficient amperage on the 12V rails. The Corsair 400CX should be good enough but the 450VX is a safer bet.

A:Motherboard not working

HP will do paid out of warranty service but it is very expensive. Your best bet is to procure the motherboard and either do it yourself, which I understand most people do not want to do or take it to a local independent service shop. Expect the whole thing to cost perhaps $200-300. HP would charge at the top end if that range or perhaps slightly more. I do not speak for them however i recommend  you should call. They will quote you a price for motherboard replacement.   Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Whenever I start up the pc, this message appears:
"Chip-fan failed or is too slow".
I noticed that the fan of the motherboard is not turning, not when using windows, internet or playing games. Is it necessary to replace the fan, because other than the message at start up, i do not notice any difference. Or could there be overheating issues?

In the attachment is the result of a program i used, sensorview, which checks temperatures and fans.

Hi, There is an issue with the motherboard in my Pavillion dv6-6c00 CTO Quad  Edition and I was looking to repurchase it. Does HP offer motherboards to sell for this product? How do I know which one to buy? I know that usually there is something on the motherboard itself that tells you what kind of motherboard to purchase but I don't want to open my laptop just for that. I have an Intel Core i7-2670M with a GDDR5 graphics card. Thank you very much!

A:Motherboard is not working

Hi, Please use part number on page 79 of the Maintenance and Service Guide from the following link: It is a CTO machine therfore no available specs. You said it has a GDDR5 graphics card. Which one is it ? You need to find out the right part number from the list and order from Part store or from Amazon Regards.

I just did my first pc build and successfully installed windows 7 home edition 64 bit. Immediately after, I inserted the CD that came with my motherboard so I could update the drivers. While trying to load the CD, I get a box that pops up and says DVDSetup application has stopped working and only gives me the option to close it. Now I am unable to update my drivers from the CD and my PC won't connect to the internet so I can't go to the msi website either. Just looking for some help if anyone has ever experienced this problem before. Thanks.

You can download the LAN driver from MSI's website on another PC and transfer it over to your new PC via USB stick. Then once connected to the internet run all rounds of Windows updates until no more are offered.

I got a new motherboard when my power supply fried my old one. It was the exact same board and when I got it it wouldn't post or anything and it would come on whenever I turned on the power supply without pushing the power button. The fans would just stay on at full speed and there would be no display. I just got another motherboard (the same one) and it's doing exactly the same thing. This still happens with another power supply in my working computer so that's not the problem. I was thinking it was the cpu but everyone on here said there is no way the cpu is fried. The only two things it could be are the cpu and ram. Would either of these cause the problems I described?

what i plugged to it.
10GB hdd
CDrom drive
nvidia riva TNT
10/100 ethernet card
256 mb ram

basicly my problem is that i shows nothing when i turn it on.. i hear it boot and i heard the harddrive work for a few sec and then i just see black screen. i used the onboard VGA port and the one on the graphic card still i see nothing. i have no manual for the board so i have no idea if ive connected everything correctly, even so if i had it should atleast show SOMETHING? at the moment my main problem is that it does not display a single thing.

what should i do

btw it also says "sis 5595" on the board in smaller print

A:Switched Motherboard and OS is not working

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You OS won`t work with your new mobo, because your hard drive still has the old mobo drivers.

You might be able to get away with doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE.

However, if that doesn`t work, you should be prepaired to do a reformat and reinstall.

Hello guys, I assembled my desktop three years back with I5 650 processor - Socket LGA1156 | 4 GB DDR3 RAM | Intel DH55TC Motherboard. Recently I started having issues with my motherboard and system does not start. When i gave it for service, I was told that I need to change the motherboard which would cost around 8-10K. I was also suggested that Motherboard plus Fourth Gen Intel processor costs around 15K and its better to get a new one as the I5 650 is relatively old which might stop working soon.

Appreciate any suggestion.

About 2 weeks ago, I turned on my computer and none of the ports on the motherboard where working. The monitor showed no display, my Ethernet cord wasn't blinking green and the lights on the keyboard and mouse were not turning on. However, the computer would turn on.

Does anyone know what the problem might be?

The only thing I can think of is the K7N2 memory is fried or the extra power output required for this board is fried on the PSU.

A:16 GBs of RAM not working on ASUS motherboard

Hello Randomrocket. Welcome to the forum.

I assume you have already checked to be sure all RAM you are trying to use is the same specs as the current RAM, most importantly the voltage spec, but also unbuffered, and the timings should be the same or very close.

That said, the first thing you need to determine is whether it is a bad stick of RAM or a bad RAM socket or a power problem.

The first thing to do is remove the old working RAM and add one stick of new RAM into the first blue slot (A1) and test. Test each new stick in A1.

If that works then install the 2 new sticks in the same locations as the old sticks (the 2 blue slots - A1&B1) and test.

Then, with the two new sticks still in A1 & B1, add one stick of the old RAM into the third slot (black - A2) and test. Then the second old stick in the last slot (black - B2).

Report back what you find.

What is that ASRock XFast USB Utility ver:3.02.30? Have you tried that?

I am not liking ASrocks idea of the "All-In-One" driver package. And it is for just this reason. What if you want to install or change just one of the drivers? You might try installing that package again if the above utility is not the one. Maybe it will give you options.

Also check carefully through the UEFI BIOS setup settings. Look for anything related to USB3. Maybe you need to enable something there.

I have an Antec 900 case and a Nvidia Nforce 680i SLI Motherboard and the power button has been going bad for the last few months. Last night I powered down and it won't restart.

I removed the power switch and swapped it with the reset, and still doesn't work.

I then cut off the power switch and made a direct connection with the two ends, still not working.

I then read an article that you can test it by directly making a connection by using a screw driver to connect the two pins on the motherboard. Still didnt work.

My question: Is there a way to bypass the connection on the mother board?

If these pins are dead does that mean I need a new motherboard?

Does anyone have any idea for a fix for this?

Thanks for any help and happy fathers day.

Today though when my boyfriend called to ask about the laptop, they told him that it had been the visual part of my motherboard that had died and it'd cost anything between £250-£400 to replace the motherboard. Now, I'm not an expert but to me this just sounds like a scam to get me to buy a new laptop because I don't really believe that if a part of the motherboard dies on a laptop, the rest will still work but I could be wrong. I could use some help so what do you guys think?

A:Visual part of motherboard not working?

well the motherboard is exactly that; the MOTHER board. If it goes, your pc will not work at all.

Hi so a couple of days ago i replaced my motherboard since my screen wasnt working. Now my screen works and everything on my laptop which is an Acer Aspire 5733 except my wifi. WHats weird is that the wifi available connections show but i am unable to connect to the wifi even with the correct wifi password. The strength signal shows two bars so shouldnt the wifi connect?

A:wifi not working after replacing motherboard

"Two bars" is really pretty meaningless, but it does imply that the signal strength may be too weak for a reliable connection. Did you double check to make sure you reconnected the antenna leads securely (assuming you are using an integrated wireless adapter)?

If you are running Windows you can check signal strength by ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

A:Gigabyte motherboard stops working

Try to boot it with minimum hardware, i.e. one RAM module, use onboard display and see whether system POST normally as it should or not.

Also, clean your system using air canister to get rid of any dust etc.

My friend has an HP Media Center PC m n His old video card wasn t cutting it so he was going to upgrade it to a Radeon x Pro PCIe Didn t work He thought it was the refurbed card so then he bought a Radeon HD PCIe and a new power supply this one This is the motherboard he has on his HP The card uses a PCIe x slot and is PCIe I read that PCIe slots are backwards compatible so the card should work on a motherboard that has and a x slot which this one does Correct We know it s not the PSU obviously cause his original card still works with that PSU and in HD working Radeon motherboard 5450 with not this motherboard and because the PSU fits the Radeon HD 5450 not working with motherboard minimum power requirements for the it is w and has a available on the v rails a required When he turns on the PC the monitor says quot monitor going to sleep quot obviously not picking up any video signal As I said it works with his old Radeon x I Radeon HD 5450 not working with motherboard think that s what it is card We re just out of ideas no idea why this won t work Any help would be appreciated nbsp

A:Radeon HD 5450 not working with motherboard

Just some quick thoughts:
verify the voltage settings in bios match the card and that no turbo mode or option is set, also make sure no old never been used onboard video got re-enabled durring a defaults load or bad boot and tweak any slot settings it could have that indicate support for 2.0 etc..

My PS2 mouse and keyboard are not working after I have replaced the motherboard and processor. The keyboard works when I enter the BIOS screen but when I continue through to Win XP SP2 the mouse won't work and the keyboard doesn't either! The installation wizzard kicks in to instal all the new MB stuff but the mouse just sits there!! AArrggghh!!
It works fine with my old motherboard. Someone said it may be a CPU overheat but surely the system would shut down if this were the case. Another said it was a conflict but I don't fully understand this and what it means. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I am attempting to connect to the internet with a broadband connection after reinstalling Windows. It keeps reporting back with Error 651 (Modem or other device reported an error), so right now I'm running though WiFi. My motherboard has a built in ethernet port, which is what I am attempting to connect through. It also has a fiber optic circuitboard installed, but my router does not support it, so I can't do anything with it.

Whenever I try to set up a new connection, Windows tells me that my computer is not set up to use Ethernet, but that I can still try to do it.

Any help is appreciated!

A:Ethernet port on motherboard not working

Reinstalling Windows frequently does not the drivers for things like the Ethernet/Network adapter, have to download drivers for it then install.

You might also need to look in the BIOS to see if the Ethernet is Enabled.

Well, I just installed a new ASUS K7V w/onboard sound. I installed all of the drivers for the onboard sound that were included with the motherboard, and I've followed microsoft's step by step sound troubleshooter, but nothing seems to fix it. From windows, it looks like the sound is being played. But I hear nothing. I have checked my connections to my speakers. What's going on here? I appreciate any help.

Good morning everyone I have a ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC SABERTOOTH FX Rev and working Motherboard's fan Chassis connectors not last night I finished transitioning all of Motherboard's Chassis fan connectors not working my computer parts into my new SilverStone Raven case with the CoolerMaster Hyper EVO CPU cooler I went to plug in two air penetrator fan SilverStone Technology Co Ltd INTRODUCTION AP and when I went to change the speed on the fans like an on off swtich I heard a big ZAP sound and my computer restarted I finally found the problem with the wires being put in backwards not by me However the chassis fan connectors on the motherboard is no longer powering the fans and my BIOS no longer detects the fans connected to it for monitoring but computer is still working fine so I'm having to run an adaptor direct to my power supply for the fans to work Is there any way to fix this problem or is the chassis fan connectors toast now and nothing I can do about it Thanks

A:Motherboard's Chassis fan connectors not working

Well, usually a big zap sound and a restart signify that something went seriously wrong. I suspect that you've blown the regulators that provide power to the chassis fans. They are not field repairable, meaning that you can't fix them. I would suggest getting a commercial fan controller to look after your fans.

Hi, here's my situation... really weird but the thing is, i have a motherboard with onboard sound drive, it used to work when i used the lineout that my pc gives, not the one that is directly attached to the motherboard, but that little piece broke so i had to go connect my headphones to the back lineout wich is the one from the onboard card.. and to my surprise that lineout doesnt work =/ why did the other one, wich was basicly a replica gave by the computer box work... the soundcard is detected by dxdiag and using the same back entrys, the mic in is working perfectly, im out of ideas. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance =P

A:Motherboard onboard lineout - Stopped working

Usually colored green, the back sound ports can be reconfigured via your sound software.
Which means, try the other holes !

But if your front connector is damaged, this may also be causing the back to stop.
Note: the front earphone and mic physically plug into the computer's motherboard via wires (as you know)

I recently put together a new system using a MSI K9NBPM2-FID mobo, Athlon 64 x2 5200, 2 Gb of Corsair XMS, and a Seagate 500 Gb SATA hard drive. I installed windows xp with no problem and everything worked. I then shut down the system and reconnected some old ide hard drives to transfer files that I wanted from the old system. After the transfer was complete, I shut down the pc and removed the old hard drives. I powered back up and there was no sound. I have checked in BIOS, tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers and audio devices/codecs, and tried reinstalling windows twice. I have also tried plugging the stereo into a different device to make sure it wasn't the stereo. Does anybody have any ideas if there is anything else that is fixable or is it most likely that the audio hardware failed after 1 day? Thank you for any suggestions or help.

A:Motherboard's onboard audio stopped working

If you re-installed Windows twice and sound didn't work: did you then go to device manager and see that all is O.K.? Do you have a sound card that needs drivers or still needs to be reinstalled? All that I know audio on my Pc's is Window's "multimedia audio controller"...Sound card and it's drivers and installing it...then your speaker system. I bet this will turn out to be a simple thing like mute turned on somewhere or something. Good Luck.

You say you are using two 256 chips and two 512 chips. Are you referring to the ram?

That could be the problem right there.

You can try to go into Device Manager and right click the Standard Enhanced Host Controller under USB and Uninstall it. Then Right click any device in the Device Manager and Scan for Hardware Changes, this should reinstall it. If it still doesn't work then go into the Bios and Disable USB and save then restart. Now Restart, go back into the Bios and Enable USB and save. When you boot up it will load fresh USB drivers.

Good luck, hope this does some good

I'm not quite sure on which board I should post this but this was the best one I could I recently tried upgrading my GPU from just running intel HD to a ASUS Strix GTX I have a w PSU which was the recommended amount and after reading various forum posts I thought it would be fine I managed to install the gpu without any issues However when I tried to run benchmarks or demanding games it would crash No BSOD or dmp files were created It was just a grayish screen and I had to shut off the computer manually After one crash the entire PC failed to start I got it to start again by taking out and putting back in each part and resetting CMOS However to properly upgrade not after attempt and working GPU. CPU Motherboard it didn't recognize my integrated gpu anymore and I had to put the back in to get screen feedback I tried reinstalling the drivers for the integrated graphics card but it still doesn't recognize it After a while of no issues I decided to run a benchmark FFXIV Heavensward benchmark maximum settings It completed the entire benchmark without any issues and I thought everything Motherboard and CPU not working properly after attempt to upgrade GPU. was fine However it did crash again when I started playing games I can still power on the PC but I cannot use the the power buttons on both the front or the motherboard The motherboard has no LEDs active the CPU fan isn't spinning and I cannot get screen feedback with or without a gpu installed I did not see any sparks fire or smell anything burned so I don't think Motherboard and CPU not working properly after attempt to upgrade GPU.

I think you can't get working both a dedicated GPU and the iGPU in the same time. You can try to enable the iGPU in the BIOS, search for it in advanced settings.

If you want to connect 3 monitors, I suggest you to upgrade to a new GPU (GTX 600 series) to use Nvidia Surround.

I have tried to place this jack into all of the audio connectors, including the front panel headphone jack, but the sound will not work. Is the sound card on the motherboard functional? Do i need to go out and purchase a new sound card? Please respond with all possible troubleshooting scenarios. Thank you.

Please more details

From your post, it is not clear if you simply replaced the motherboard and expected everything to 'just work' after that. Sorry if I underestimate your knowledge, but if I happen to be right, you MUST install your motherboard drivers .... the only exception would be if replacing with an identical motherboard, and that, given the rate of change, would be almost impossible.
