Question about Intel D945GTP Motherboard

1 Answer

Dead MB? Have a D945GTP system that has been running for some time. Unplugged it for a few weeks. Now, there is nothing when you turn the power switch on. Have the green LED on the MB when AC power is ON. While AC was on, I replaced the coin cell battery. Old one was 3.0 volts, seems OK. Still nothing. With new coin cell in place, replaced power supply. Nothing. Any suggestions would be great.

    Similar problem here. I can hear hd/cd drive pwr up. all fans working. no external outputs. (no light on usb keyboard, mouse) no vga. I do have lights on the onboard nic. But cannot ping machine, or remote into it.
    have tried swapping ram, drives, etc. did not try swapping pwr supply.

    My computer was working fine. At the time, I had created a new folder and was transferring some files from another folder into the new one I just created, when all of a sudden, in the middle of transferring a file, the computer lost all power. As if someone just pulled the plug out the back of it. I see the green light on the mb is still on but won't power up. At all. I've changed power supplies. Still nothing. I take my hd out, run it as a slave on another computer and it works fine. So I'm left with the possibility that its either my processor or the mb that doesn't work anymore. I think its the mb but dont understand why.

Most of the time the issue seems to be a bad power supply. I would test with a different one if possible. In rare cases I have seen the capacitors bulge and leak leading to a dead motherboard.

Intel D945GTP power comes for one second and suddenly off


open the tower/ ATX cabinet and then check the two small power cable pins that connects the power button on the ATX cabinet and the motherboard, remove the same from the motherboards end (make sure you note down from where you removed the 2 power pins and then using a insulated screwdriver short the power pins on the motherboard for a second until you see the power coming on let go of the pins as soon as you see the CPU fan moving if it stays on and works normally it is a faulty power switch on the ATX cabinet and then you can either replace only the power switch or get a new ATX cabinet to fix it

you can also check if motherboard stays on if you remove the RAM chip from the motherboard. if yes its a faulty Ram and replacing the same should do the trick

you can also try cleaning the dust accumalated under the CPU fan and between the heat sink as some motherboard cuts off the power depending on the temperature

also if nothing works you can try using a different power supply unit to see if that's the case,

if still no luck then its time to buy a new motherboard.

CPU: intel core i3 550, MB: Inel DH55TC, Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333Mhz, SMPS: 550 Watt. After first installation, this system ran for 3 months without any problems, suddenly, it became dead and assuming it...


How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz

Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer
A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g.
Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer)
Booting your Operating System
Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on

Replace your Ram

Mb have power but not start...


Hi, good day sir, there are several things you should do first.
1. Disconnect all connections to the motherboard.
2. make sure that your Power Supply 4pin 12volt molex and 24 pin molex connectors are tightly plug.
3. Clean the memory port from any dust, plug the RAM module, make sure also the module connector is clean.
4. Plug in the speaker and power switch.
5. Connect a VGA monitor.
6. Reset bios/cmos or simply operate the pc without the battery.
7. Plug the Power Supply to AC mains.
8. test the PC.
9. do this several times if you cant start the PC.
10. if every thing is OK, reconnect your PC and peripherals one at a time.
Hope this helps.keep me inform about your progress. thanks

D945GTP comes out of standby automatically


Check out all of your power options. Also make sure that none of your keys on your keyboard are stuck or mouse buttons. If anything touches yoru keyboard or mouse, it will come out of stand by.

Computer is not working, changed power supply and is sti dead


Try to unplug the power cable from the system for 2 minutes and then turn the PC on.

If that does not work, then look for the battery of the motherboard, it would be like a coin. Use clippers and remove it for 2 minutes and put it back in and power the system.

If that does not work then try and remove the one RAM at a time and restart your system.

If all the above steps does not work, then you would have to replace your MB.

Won't boot up


We cannot assume that your motherboard is dead, try these: Unplug computer power cable from the socket outlet.


First, check to be sure the power supply is switched to 120 V.
If it is, then do a minimum system configuration test. Turn off the ON/OFF switch on the PS back panel, and disconnect the cord. You don't want to work on the motherboard (MB) with standby power applied.
Disconnect all components from the motherboard (including floppy, CD, hard drive). Leave the power connector attached to the hard drive, as the power supply has a minimum load requirement (never run a switching supply without a load, unless it is designed to do so -- and few are). Remove the power connector from the Motherboard, then reinsert it (potential for bad contact in control circuit).
Remove the RAM, reinsert one stick (going for a minimal configuration).
Remove all PCI boards and AGP. The motherboard should be able to turn on and beep an error code even without RAM and video.
Plug the PS back in, turn on the back panel switch, and use your screwdriver to short the power button pins (ATX type of supply).
Double check which pins are the power switch pins in the documentation, as front panel attachment point functions are usually not obvious, and are easily mis-wired since the connectors come off so easily during maintenance.
When you touch the pins, the CPU fan should instantly start turning, and shortly thereafter, the MB should beep an error code.
If not, check the mounting for the MB. Some cases use a U shaped rectangular snap in receptacle for MB mounting screws. These commonly become bent or twisted, and can short out nearby traces sometimes resulting in dead board symptoms.
If the fan didn't start turning when expected, you probably want to repeat this minimum configuration test with the motherboard out of the box.
Put it on an insulated surface (e.g. pink packing foam or cardboard), being careful about electrostatic discharge (ESD) (however, my bet is ESD damage that disables a motherboard is rare).
Although I haven't seen it, your motherboard may require the video card to be plugged in to turn on.
I doubt this, though, as there is enough housekeeping to do before checking for the video card that the fan should have time to start to spin.
If it still isn't working, try the other memory stick, or remove all memory.
Double check all connections before applying power!

Intel MB D945GTP


give it 3 hours with no P/S plugged in, it might come back up. I just read a similar post. Dies when you unplug anything "active" from mobo, like fan, drive or floppy. MOBO senses voltage difference and shuts down.

Wont post.


Try a few things for me OK? From what you typed, turned on the psu "the toggle switch on the psu", pc seemed to be starting up. I need you to keep the toggle switch on the power supply in the on position. Press and hold the start button on the PC case to shut it down. Give it a few seconds & power up by pressing the power switch on the case. Notice a differance? Next, unplug everything connected to the pc expect the monitor, mouse & keyboard. Try to boot. Still no? Remove the side of the case exposing the board. Turn the psu off by flipping the toggle switch on the psu, wait till the green light on the board goes out. Grab the Mb ( I know it's tight in there) and see if you can move the board in any direction. Not loose? Re-check all data & power connections for a solid connect. Re-check your case to Mb connections. Also check the PSU, there is a red slide switch it should be set to 115v. Post your findings..
