|Maybe newegg could put in the description of this item that it does in fact require a 24pin+8pin connection. Seems to be a good choice for the price. Truly a good Mobo, but a pain when starting. Also, it be nice if ASRock gave you a list of the "beep codes" for the Mobo.|

Chapter 2 Installation
G41M-VGS3 / G41M-VS3 is a Micro ATX form factor (8.9" x 6.7", 22.6 x 17.0 cm) motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it.
Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure to do so may cause physical injuries to you and damages to motherboard components.
2.1 Screw Holes
Place screws into the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the chassis.
Do not over-tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.
2.2 Pre-installation Precautions
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings. 1. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any component. 2. To avoid damaging the motherboard components due to static electricity, NEVER place your motherboard directly on the carpet or the like. Also remember to use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle components. 3. Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs. 4. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that comes with the component.
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or components.
2.3 CPU Installation
For the installation of Intel 775-LAND CPU, please follow the steps below.
775-Pin Socket Overview Before you insert the 775-LAND CPU into the socket, please check if the CPU surface is unclean or if there is any bent pin on the socket. Do not force to insert the CPU into the socket if above situation is found. Otherwise, the CPU will be seriously damaged.
Installing an expansion card
Step 1. Before installing the expansion card, please make sure that the power supply is switched off or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation. Remove the bracket facing the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screws for later use. Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely seated on the slot. Fasten the card to the chassis with screws.
Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
2.7 Jumpers Setup
The illustration shows how jumpers are setup. When the jumper cap is placed on pins, the jumper is Short. If no jumper cap is placed on pins, the jumper is Open. The illustration shows a 3-pin jumper whose pin1 and pin2 are Short when jumper cap is placed on these 2 pins. Jumper Setting PS2_USB_PWR1 2_3 1_2
Description Short pin2, pin3 to enable (see p.10 No. 1) +5VSB (standby) for PS/2 +5V +5VSB or USB wake up events. Note: To select +5VSB, it requires 2 Amp and higher standby current provided by power supply. Clear CMOS
(CLRCMOS1, 2-pin jumper) (see p.10 No. 18)
Note: CLRCMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup, please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on CLRCMOS1 for 5 seconds. EUP LAN / EUP Audio Jumper
(EUP_LAN1, 3-pin jumper, see p.10 No. 22) (EUP_AUDIO1, 3-pin jumper, see p.10 No. 21)
Default (Enable EuP)
Note: EUP_LAN and EUP_AUDIO jumper design decreases the power consumption of this motherboard to meet EuP standard. With an ASRock EuP ready motherboard and a power supply that the 5VSB power efficiency is higher than 50% under 100mA current consumption, your system is able to submit EuP standard. The default setting (short pin1 and pin2) is EuP enabled. If you want to disable this power saving function, you may short pin2 and pin3. Please be noticed that when EUP_LAN jumper is set to enabled, the Wake-On-LAN function under S3 (Suspend to RAM), S4 (Suspend to Disk), and S5 (Soft Off) will be disabled.
(FSB1, 3-pin jumper, see p.10 No. 26)
If you adopt FSB1333-CPU and DDRmemory module on this motherboard, you need to adjust the jumper. Please short pin2, pin3 for FSB1 jumper. Otherwise, the CPU and memory module may not work properly on this motherboard. Please refer to below jumper setting.
2.8 Onboard Headers and Connectors
Onboard headers and connectors are NOT jumpers. Do NOT place jumper caps over these headers and connectors. Placing jumper caps over the headers and connectors will cause permanent damage of the motherboard!

ATA/IDE Configuration Please select [Compatible] when you install legacy OS (Windows NT). If native OS (Windows 7 / VistaTM / XP) is installed, please select [Enhanced]. When [Compatible] is selected Combined Option It allows you to select between [SATA 1, SATA 2, SATA 3, SATA 4], [SATA 1, SATA 3, IDE 1], [IDE 1, SATA 2, SATA 4] and [PATA Only]. If it is set to [SATA 1, SATA 3, IDE 1], then SATAII_2, SATAII_4 will not work. Likewise, if it is set to [IDE 1, SATA 2, SATA 4], then SATAII_1, SATAII_3 will not work. If you select [PATA Only], then all SATAII will not work, only IDE will work.
Because Intel ICH7 south bridge only supports four IDE devices under legacy OS (Windows NT), you have to choose [SATA 1, SATA 2, SATA 3, SATA 4], [SATA 1, SATA 3, IDE 1], or [IDE 1, SATA 2, SATA 4] when the installed device is used with legacy OS.
