First double check your front panel Connector it is laid out as follows


The power switch should attach to pins 6 & 8. The Pins for the reset switch should attach to pins 7 & 9 if its a two pin connector if it is a 3 pin Connector add in pin 5

The power LED connects to pins 2 & 4 The HDD activity LED attaches to pins 1 & 3.
If either or both of these LED's don't light up when the PC is running then reverse the pins for the respective LED(s)

Once the connections are confirmed
Check that the CPU is properly seated, the RAM and Video card connectors have lock down latches. Make sure they swing up and fully seat into the notches on the Ram modules and Video card

Make sure that both power connectors are attached there is a 20 pin ATX connector and a 12V connector (a 4 pin square connector) next to the CPU they should seat until the plastic clip clicks into place.

If the Video card you have chosen has a seperate power connection make sure that has been attached.

You should now be ready to give it a try again. If when you try to turn it on again you see a light on your Motherboard you know the board is OK. If not you may have a damaged Motherboard (Which you should get replaced under warranty)

If the light comes on but your PC tries to come up and it shuts down again immediately, you likely have either a damaged CPU or bad Ram modules. Which you should also replace under warranty.

If you have any further questions please post a comment here and I will try to help you further

My pc mother board is intel d865gbf/d865perc. It starts and faile and turn off. It will not start soon. So what would be the problem?

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit preferably with a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage remembering that with any added hardware your computer will use more power/wattage eg:more RAM ,bigger hard drive,slave drive

One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

You can start with the CPU. Here is a list of supported processors for your motherboard.

Then your RAM can be increased. See this page for approved/tested RAM modules:

If you should install 4 1GB modules, you will only show 3.5 if you use a 32-bit operating system.

The third thing you can do is to add or upgrade a video card. This board has an 8X AGP slot. It is compatible with 0.8V or 1.5V cards only. Install one with the greatest amount of memory you can afford. Suggest 512MB or 1GB.

Those are the main improvements you can make to this, or any board for that matter.

Good luck. Thanks for using Fixya.

D865GBF download page is here.
D865GLC download page is here.
Unfortunately, Intel doesn't list Vista as an operating system choice for either board.

Check if you hooked all the plugs from the power supply. There is a small one people tend to forget

Need Help !! D865GBF / D865PERC Intel Motherboard No Pictures

While the system may be emitting a memory error beep code, that obviously is not the only issue here. If there is onboard video and it isn't working, try this:

1: Unplug system
2: Open case
3: Look for the CR2032 flat watch-style battery located on the motherboard, usually around where the front panel connections are
4: Remove this battery using a flathead screwdriver to push on the tiny 'hook' of metal holding it in. DO NOT PRY THE BATTERY OUT.
5: Let system sit for 10 seconds and put the battery back in.
6: Power the system back up

What this does is drain the system's memory completely. If it was perhaps set to use the AGP video card (which isn't installed, hence no video), this setting should be cleared and you should get onboard video.

Failing this, really, your only choice is a new motherboard, or to install an AGP card and see if it works. If you don't feel like hunting down a replacement board, I'd just order a cheap AGP card. If the AGP card works, use it. If not, then your motherboard is really pooched and you'll need a new one anyways.

About the memory beep issue:

You can google memtest86 and download that program. Burn it to a bootable CD and run the memory test; it should tell you if the memory is good or not.

hope that helps!
