From what I can see that motherboard does not implement S/PDIF audio; evidenced by the lack of a S/PDIF (or any digital) output on the back panel (just has three 3.5mm "phone" jacks), and the fact that the manual and specs on MSI's site make no mention of S/PDIF. Since there's no digital audio output supported, the connector you're looking for will not ...

3 pin fans are voltage controlled only, feed less voltage to them to get them to slow down. An older fan that the lubrication had not been maintained, or just the usual cheap Sleeve bearing fan would have trouble starting up at lower voltages, although it might start-up properly at full voltages. Once started (as you noticed) it will run. Antec has/sells ...

This is baffling since—if what you are saying is true—the M.2 mounting screw being fused makes no sense; it should simply be a standoff with a small screw in it. Looking through the official ASUS Z97I-PLUS manual doesn’t help much either. The only thing I can glean from all of this is your motherboard can handle 2242, 2260 and 2280 sized SSDs; 22mm is the ...

What you listen is the power on self test, POST for the friends. The computer power-on self-test (POST) tests the computer to make sure it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. You said something like... well the like is important, it is the message that ...

Colleague “A” is 100% correct: Wake-on-LAN (WoL) functionality dependent on the motherboard and related BIOS settings. The NIC should be able to support WoL and the BIOS needs to be able to make sense of the NIC saying, “Hey! This is your NIC and my WoL has been triggered! Do you care do do something with this info, motherboard?” As explained very clearly ...

I think the other suggestions about the PSU may be going down the right path, but it's better not to just throw parts at something without doing some more troubleshooting. I noticed that your new motherboard has onboard video. Did your old motherboard? I ask because the 9600GT (older card, so I assume you used it in your old system) requires 400W. The new ...

There are often settings made to the bios/uefi that are off from the defaults that can be critical to booting. It is good to write down settings prior to resetting or flashing a bios. Removing the battery resets everything to defaults, any of the needed changes would have to be remade. This can be things like: The Boot Order Default IDE RAID AHCI settings ...

The y-adapter is reasonable, and something you can calculate beforehand. The HDD manufacturer should provide a product specification listing the maximum amperage draw for the rails it uses (example). A power connector supplies a total of 4.5 A for each voltage, so knowing if you have enough power is something you can check Usually 3.5" drives use the 12V ...

This is not possible. The motherboard will choose one of the cards as the primary and the POST information will appear there always. What might be possible, assuming you have 2 monitors, is if your secondary monitor has two inputs, you could either take a second output from the primary card (if it has 2 connectors) or use a splitter cable to feed the ...

Since you can ramp up fan speed by playing other games, we can rule out fan failure and motherboard's inability to control fan speed. I can only guess that this specific game is doing something weird with CPU that unintentionally caps fan speed on this MoBo. I can think of few unfortunate combinations of game's behavior and driver/MoBo/BIOS bugs that could ...

Disable passive cooling in windows if you can Unplug and plug in your fan Disable any passive cooling options in BIOS You can try a very low target temperature on BIOS AMD used to allow CPUs to work in higher temperatures. You can try underclocking your CPU. (Just decrease the multiplier by 1 or 2)

The PSAUX connector on Intel server boards is used when interfacing with a compatible 'intelligent' redundant power supply system. It should also be usable with non-redundant supplies, but I've never seen it implemented (even with Intel's own chassis/PSUs). The connector is an I2C signaling line so the motherboard's system management bus (SMBUS) can ...

It's most likely a RAM problem as that code (2B in hex) falls into the MRC (Memory Reference Code) range. George Chen, a research and development (R&D) director at ASUS, described [MRC]in 2007 as follows: "The MRC is part of reference BIOS code, which relates to memory initialisation in the BIOS. It includes information about memory settings, ...

Not enough rep to just post this is a comment. Have you tried the card in another slot? I've had motherboards that only let me put my graphics cards in either the closest or farthest slot from the CPU. In fact, my current system only boots with it in the farthest away slot. Otherwise, the only obvious answer would be that the graphics card is dead. The ...

Your CPU cannot talk directly to DIMM's. The motherboard is in between the two. In particular, the motherboard is responsible for figuring out which DIMM to talk to, when the CPU asks for a certain address. If the CPU gives an address past 4 GB, and the motherboard doesn't understand that address, it can't find the right DIMM. (More modern CPU's work ...

No, your motherboard will not support either of those processors. The XFX 750i is a Socket LGA775 motherboard (source) but those processors use Socket LGA1150 which is much newer. The Pentium and Celeron brands have been reused many times since the 90's even though different generations are not compatible.

Responsiveness is really only significantly affected by five things: The total amount of RAM, more is better. The speed of the CPU, high end is better. The speed of the primary storage system, high end SSDs are better. The cooling, it must be sufficient to let the CPU run at full speed continuously. Drivers and resident programs. Stick to common hardware ...
