Hi, Does it start to boot from windows and then shut off or is it before windows? Try removing the HDD and see if it will still shut down. If it does not shut then with the HDD removed, then the OS on the HDD is corrupted. Thanks, Mike

Gigabyte have good online support. Go to their website download center and select Driver on the left hand side. You will be asked questions about your product and taken to the drivers for that motherboard. You can then choose the ones you need to reinstall.

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Gigabyte GA-8IPEI000 pro-g DDR2?

Sorry your board does not support DDR2 memory. The dimm slots that you mention above are only showing you which slot is number one & number two. This does not mean the memory is DDR2. See your spec's at this link.
