K7N2 board just purchased.I recently replaced my MSI K7N2-L motherboard with a K7N2 board that is a bit longer.I have connected everything up, but there are no jumpers on the board.Can you tell me where the jumpers across the board need to go to get this running?AMD Athlon XP, prescribed RAM. Thanks
HiWelcome to Just Answer and thank you for your query.Please can you clarify why you need the jumpers, is the PC not powering up?, what symptoms are you seeing?RegardsShauqat
not powering up. I have replaced and verified the power supply. The seller recommended the jumpers, and that is when i noticed that the board had NO jumpers in place.I am currently looking at both boards trying to compare and translate the jumper placements,lol.thanks
it wont be the jumpers, please can you check the cable from the power button to the motherboard, ensure that it is in the correct place and if it is turn it around as it has polarity on it so the positive and negative may not matchRegardsShauqat
Ive done the check with the power connector, and verified it with the old board as well.
this is the connector from the power switch not the psu the little 2 pin black connector
yes, the new board has it in a new location, and without labels of polarity.I looked it up and got board drawings for that specific section of the board to show exact placement and polarity.This is my first board replacement, but I noticed jumpers in place on my board that seem related to the power.There is one labeled JBAT1 next to the 3V battery. And there is a jumper set next to the connector labeled JPW1 for power to the processor. Im about to test it out with those jumpers transfered to the new board.
Please dont touch the JBAT this is to clear the cmos and should only be used when you want to clear it WITHOUT power going to the boardJPW1 is the 4 pin power connector coming in from your power supply do you have something plugged in there?RegardsShauqat
not right now. I plug that in when setting up the board. The old board used the same connector and jumper placement.the JBAT jumper was in place on my old board and had been throughout its life.Are you saying that the jumper shouldnt be there?
no, still no power on.
there should be a jumper on jbat and if there isn't you need to put the jumper on the bottom 2, so looking at the motherboard the CPU should be at the top and the jbat should have 3 pins with the top one being closest to the cpu this being pin 1 the middle being pin 2 and the last being pin 3, the jumper needs to go on pins 2 and 3RegardsShauqat
the old board had them on the top 2. Which is where I put them when moved.no power.I did try moving to the bottom 2, and still no power.Is it possible I have damaged the board?
Well if the CPU is in both the 20 pin (ATX) and 4 pin power connector (JPW) is in properly and the ram isAND you have turned the 2 pin power connector from the case both ways then its very fair to assume the board is faultyPlease can you try this wire everything upRemove the power cableMove the jbat jumper to pin 1 and pin 2 for 30 secondsmove it back to pin 2 and 3press and hold the power button on the case for approx 30 secondsPlug in the power cable and see if it powers upif this fails i would say motherboard is faultyRegardsShauqat

nope, no power up.
i would say it would be safe to assume that the motherboard is faultyRegardsShauqat
