I needed a parallel port for an older printer, and this worked easily- http: Jan 6, Posts: Several pins on the CPU were bent during this process; however, none of the pins broke off, so I bent them back into line using a dental pick and verified that the CPU still seated correctly in the socket. Fri Apr 25, 9: Thanks for taking the time to write. Before I open the box and make the new CPU un-returnable, I would very much like to confirm that I am performing all the necessary steps to allow the system board to power on such as jumpering certain pins, etc.

Gigabyte AMD 690G chipset GA-MA69GM-S2H User Manual
Wonder of wonders, the fscking thing fired up like a champ. With the Gigabyte board no matter which of the 4 ports I plug the 2 devices into I can’t get them recognised as the ma69mg 2 chanels. I use Sabayon, Mandriva, Mint as they seem to give the most out of the box support.
The hd is connected to the top right sata port on the board and the optical is connected to the top left port. Introduction and Specs Page 2: View this thread in our forums! Final Thoughts And Conclusion.
Try removing the power switch connector and using a screwdriver to briefly short the pins together. Test Setup Page 5: Fri Apr 25, 4: Thanks to shmooster, Jhhnn, cshenderson and especially Rave for taking the time to comment and helping me to figure this out!
Before I open the box and make the new CPU un-returnable, I would very much like to confirm that I am performing all the necessary steps to allow the system board to power on such as jumpering certain pins, etc. The bottom right is where we find the AMD Data north bridge. Sat Apr 26, 1: Gigabit lan is supported with the Realtek SC controller.
Originally posted by shmooster: The hd appears to be working correctly but the optical drive is not recognised by the OS. They satx been turned on their sides, which can pose problems if you have a small case, as getting to them may be an issue, but it depends on the case. That is also where we find both our IDE and floppy connectors.
Greetings all, Apologies in advance for the long post, but I could really use some system build troubleshooting assistance here. You could always use the LiveCd option on another distro to compare. I have 2 of the giga-boards in service, and they’re excellent so far. What I am hoping for from this post is to get some help putting together a step by step plan to put together a working system out of these components. When I had the first system board in the case, it did appear to be resting correctly on the standoffs, and I was able to screw in all five retaining screws into the standoff holes without ms69gm strain or flexing.
For next steps, I’d check the standoffs, put the board back in the case, make sure the speaker is connected and listen for beep codes. Eata and all guidance will be very much appreciated.
I’m not familiar with your board, but know when I select AHCI mode on my main Controller IC9r all my drives bar those on the Jmicron controller disappear from the bios Standard option page.
Need help troubleshooting Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H POST failure – Ars Technica OpenForum
Gigabyte did a good job placing things on the board. Join Date Apr Posts Jhhnn Ars Legatus Legionis Registered: I don’t know whether sataa not this is an issue but I have a suspicion that that is what is causing linux not to find the optical drive. At this point, my haphazard troubleshooting has led me to conclude that there is most likely an issue with the CPU, which may have happened when I originally installed it or when I bent the pins during transplantation to the second motherboard.
