Re: i have a gigabyte 965p-ds3 motherboard problem
What you may have to do is check if the HDD is operating. When the pc is started, listen in for the operation of the HDD. If it goes through the process of posting and no display but the HDD spinning. The motherboard may have a chance. Minimize what you have installed, or just enough to have it run and make sure the connections are on proper. I'd start with reseting the BIOS, or do what you can to make it show display. You can try to reflash the BIOS,there may be several ways, one you can try the floppy with needed file(s) and try that proceedure. If the BIOS chip on the motherboard is socketed and not surface mounted, find a replacement BIOS chip. I had a similar incident in where i flashed a gigabyte BIOS with @BIOS, restarted the pc, and then never came back on. Similar with what you've described with no post, quiet enough to determine since all i heared were just the fans. The motherboard was dead. Before you do this, make sure the PSU is working, that may be the problem.

The POST beep code - 3 short beeps mean RAM failure. Try reseating the RAM modules. If this does not solve your problem then remove all the RAM modules and insert one RAM module at a time into memory slot 0 (1st memory slot) to determine which is the faulty RAM module.
1. make sure that all motherboard fans are working especially the CPU fan. the motherboard shutsdown when it reaches a max temperature.
2. maybe your power supply is defective.
3. make sure that the CPU heatsink is properly seated in the processor
Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.
