Question about Motherboards

PC wont boot with fast POST anymore

If I set PC (ECS 845gv-m3) to fast POST it will boot to "verifying DMA pool........." then restart. This problem seemed to begin with installing Vista Ultimate, it has always been fine with fast POST before.

    Even if I set BIOS to failsafe options it still wont post fast. I put in another gig of RAM and soundcard/ vid card. It was happening before this though. I'm sure the problem began when I was trying to install a Powercolor 9600 card (which turned out to be incompatible) and even when I removed card it continued. its as though the bios/Cmos expects a different amount or different type of memory???

Hi findads,

I'm sorry to hear of your problem. The good news is that I don't think that VISTA Ultimate is responsible for the problem, as at the POST time the OS has not yet launched; the MB is still in control.

My suspicion would be that something else might have changed at the same time. For example, did you change any hardware when you upgraded? I'd also guess that the best chance for solving the problem would be to flash the board's BIOS to its latest version, and to make sure that no other BIOS settings have changed that could be causing the problem.

I hope this information is helpful. If you think it appropriate, I'd appreciate a Fix Ya rating on this solution. Good luck!

    Hmm, maybe the video settings in BIOS are wrong (AGP?PCI/PCI Express and multipliers/window size).



    I still think I'd flash teh BIOS to the latest version if you haven't done so, and make sure that somesetting in the BIOS didn't somehow get changed --rogue electron or something :).

I need a vidio driver


I prefer to get the drivers from the chipset fabricator (here it's likely Intel's site--Intel onboard video(?))--not the motherboard fabricator's site.

Only extremely rarely is the chipset fabricators' drivers not the best solution. Nowadays, though, the board fabricators site likely offers decent and workable drivers--board fabricators have become far better at upgrading them than in the past.

I installed win xp but the drivers for 845gv-m3 v10 does not work that i download from your site? Please help


btjunkie.org is my resource for all of my XP drivers I answer this question a lot from folks that need drivers. If you can I suggest upgrading anyway to Win 7 they are downloaded mostly for you during the install process which makes it a lot easier these days to fix machines. Less time in any event go to that site make sure that you have U torrent a torrent file down-loader program software. Type in the search box once at the btjunkie site XP drivers you will have thousands of them to download on one disk insert the disk then go to devices seek the drivers needed to be found point the seek to your drivers disk and hopefully it can be had. I never have an issue with drivers using the software downloaded from there site. I hope this assists you. It is also for those of you who read this post to keep your driver files with your purchase when you bought the computer. If this is not the case then you will have to hunt them down.

No display


Have you installed your display driver, it might be a problem from that. Install your proper display driver and check it may solve your issue. It might also arise from your display card if it is not functioning properly. And the last check your monitor that it is in proper condition or not.

HI findads,

You need to make a change in your bios. Still have your manual for the 845GV-M3 motherboard?
If not you can download it at this link: http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=465&DetailName=Manual&DetailDesc=845GV-M3%20%20(V1.0)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=82&LanID=0

If you have already installed the 9600 AGP card, please shut down your system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Open your case & remove the 9600 AGP card. One must follow an order of sequences’ when changing graphics cards. Once removed, reconnect the power cord to the power supply & boot the system. (It’s ok not to close your case). As the system starts to boot, press the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds. The main bios menu will load. Read the instruction at the bottom of the menu which will show you how to move about in the bios.
(The mouse does not function while in the bios).
Using the manual to help change a settings.

Go to Advanced Chipset Features page 35, than into Integrated Peripherals, page 37.

Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Install the AGP video card. Make sure it is completely seated & even in the AGP slot. Screw it down. Before closing the case, re-check all internal power connections to every device & all data connections. (Snug fit). Close your case & reconnect the power cord to the PC. Boot your system. You should have display & windows should load.
Install the CD software for the 9600 Pro video card. Restart the PC. Go to power color & check for any driver updates for the 9600 Pro card. http://www.powercolor.com/
Before installing any update from PowerColor check windows for updates.

Everything should work out ok.
Good luck findads!
