    hey,



    Thanks for getting back to me, i have tried different Ram modules but to no avail.



    However i think its my CPU that it doesen't like ... in the Manual it says Support for Intel Pentium- dual core in the LGA 775 package, which i have Pentium4 3.4ghz 550j - dual core - LGA 775, but on Gigabytes website the CPU support list says its not supported.



    I was kind of hopeing to use this CPU as i don't have enough money to buy a new Processor.



    Cheers.

    thats ok, plz try by resiting the ram and check all the cable connection, if you are using two ram module then try one at a time, if the problem is not solved then you can try with a new smps(just to know if your powersupply unit is ok) if the problem remains then *********** board is the culprit

This is a pentium 4 motherboard I believe. Check that you have connected the 2nd power supply to the motherboard which is often required due to the cpu being a higher power requirement. The PSU should have a smaller squarer plug with a clip that plugs into the motherboard. THis has caught me out before.
If not, sorry....
Cheers.

No video on new Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 motherboard


There are a couple things that you need to look at. The first is your power supply. I've had computers seeming to run fine with no video. Turned out to be bad power supplies.
Does your video card require a power connection? Many high-end video cards need an external power connection. If the card has a power connection, use it.
Have you gone in and checked the cmos settings? What does it say (if anything) for the default video?
Now remove all connections to drives (hard drive and CD and try for video. Try it.
Next, if possible, swap out memory.
After you've tried everything (including maybe burning incense), time to try a new motherboard.

Hi im David,

1. To start to buying a computer, you need a Standard ATX case, they sell only ATX cases so you can choose one at the shop that suits you. Then you might want to get a power supply because the pne that comes with the case will not supply enought power. You would want at least 550W. I recomment the Coolermaster 660W.

2. You will then need to think what Brand CPU your going to use. These days AMD is not making the best CPU's So i recommend Intel. Based on what you want to do and what the shop has, i would get the Dual Core E7200 (2.53 GHz 3MB Cache) or the E8400 (3.0GHz 6MB Cache). There is no point for buying a Quad core as it is expensive and not many games can use the full extent of the CPU.

3. Once chosen teh brand on the CPU you have to buy a Motherboard that supports the CPU, they only sell One type of Intel CPU and that the LGA 775 so any Intel Motherboard will work with your CPU. I would get Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3 at $125. Dont bother buying anything higher than $155 unless you got the money and really need it. I psersonally use GA-EP43-DS3 because it has all the features i need like Dual Graphics (not SLI), 3 firewire connections, 12 USB ports, 7.1 Surround Sound, 6 SATA Ports and 4 ram slots.

4. Once gotten your motehrboard you will need RAM. They sell Kingstom and Corsair DDR2 Ram at speed of 800MHz. Corsair is a much better brand but you wont notice much difference between the two of them. 2GB is more than enought if your going to run XP but you will need 4GB for Vista. get 4X1GB and you will get faster speeds than 2X2GB.

5. Getting a Hard Drive. Depending what you are going to store on your Hard drive, you can get different sizes. The bigger the size the cheaper it is per gigabyte. I would get a 500GB. Western Digital and Samsung is quieter than Segate but isnt as fast in speed but you wont notice the difference. Make sure you get 3.5" or if u want you can get a 2.5" but it wont fit anywhere in your case so you will have to rest it soemwhere. It still can be plugged it to your motherboard. I use a 2.5: with my Desktop PC because it reduces noise.

6. Getting an optical Drive. Make sure you get a DVD Burner, they are only $40. YOu may consider getting a Blu-Ray Drive so you can watch Blu-ray movies on your cmputer or use your Computer as a Blu-ray player and plug it in your LCD TV. Blu ray will cost $175 for LG or $215 for Pioneer. Pioneer is better.

7. Next you will need a PCI-Express graphics card. For your games the minimum i would buy would be Gigabyte Nvidia 8400GS. I recommend Gigabyte Nvidia 9600GT 512MB.

8. You may want to buy a monitor, you can choose since its just a monitor.


You can choose any preheripals such as mouse and keuboard. Wireless mouse is recommend but theres no point for wireless keyboard unless you plan to sit a few meters away from the computer.

Once bought you can get the shop to buid it for you or you can buid it yourself.
When building yourself, make sure you wear a Electrostatic Discharge Wrist band to prevent damage. Or simply touch the metal of the case to get rid of the static. Do not touch any electrical compunet pins such as CPU pins and CPU socket Pins.

Once made you will need to install an operating system. You can buy one or Download a pirated version.
