Question about Gigabyte GA-7VRX Motherboard
I just bought a new motherboard and processor (the cpu is an AMD XP 2500+) but when installed, the system won't boot up.
What happens is this:
The CPU fan turns for a second but then stops, nothing else is booting up either.
After that failed, an orange LED is lit up and stays lit up on my motherboard.
Power jumper is where it's supposed to be, but I don't know what the problem could be.
Thank you for our help :)
Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike

The CPU failure was possibly due to a Power Spike, if that was the case then the Memory or Motherboard may also be damaged, it may be best to test the CPUs and the memory on a known working system, to see what is working & what is not
