Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Gigabyte Motherboard Hey guys, I have a Gigabyte Motherboard with a Pentium 4 Processor and RDRam on the board. I have had this board for about 4 years and it finally started to give me problems. When I boot up, it will make it to the Windows XP screen and then from there the hard drive light will stay lit but the screen stays black. I found that there was a bad capacitor on the board so I replaced that and the first time it booted up, it worked but now it still gets stuck at the same place. It will boot up if I use Safe Mode, but any regular mode it gets stuck. I have ran numerous tests on it and one told me that I had a bad stick of Ram, so I took out that pair and threw in some continual ram pieces for RDRam. I also have tried about 3 different hard drives and it happens to each one on the second boot. Any help would be appreciated.

If it worked when you changed capacitors only once and then broke again it might be frying them or something like that. I assume you have tried resetting CMOS and reseting your bios settings to default? the last thing to try would be a reformat. but this board has had a long life and if you can afford it i would just update.

How to check my gigabyte mother board under warranty?


hi.there...

i read from your information and picture about your motherboard type..i think yours is not under warranty from factory anymore (GIGABYTE)

for additional information your mainboard (MB) is using old type of intel chip set (Intel 865 series) and only support intel processor type Pentium 4 with 478 pin with 533 MHz bus processor..

talking about warranty from factory GIGABYTE only give 3 years warranty only for MB with minimum chipset intel ICH 7 and up..that's mean MB must be support processor minimum 775 pin and 1155 pin or support intel Pentium D,Dual Core,Core2Duo or Core i series...

hope this is can help to solve your problem..

I want to know that shall i put pentium 4/ 2.4 Ghz/ 533 Fsb/ Processor on this Gigabyte 845GVM-RZ board? will it support ?and i have 1 Gb ddr1 400 mhz ram will this work on this Board?


Yes for the Intel Pentium 4/2.4GHz/533FSB processor. (Socket 478)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Scroll through. What sSpec number is on top of the processor's case? {You are following Anti-Static Precautions, correct? }

Won't support better than a Prescott Core Pentium 4. (Next chart down)

The Gigabyte GA-8I ((Supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB)

NO to the Ram Memory.
The Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ supports DDR Sdram at 333Mhz. (PC2700)
IMHO it will not support DDR Sdram at 400MHz. (PC3200)

My reasoning is this;

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate of the Processor.

Processor FSB > MAXIMUM frequency rate is 533MegaHertz for the GA-8I845GVM-RZ
Ram memory at 333MHz is doable.
Not 400MHz.

No, you won't be able to overclock, and bring the FSB of the Processor high enough for PC3200 Ram Memory.
(The rest of the motherboard wouldn't work anyway if you did. PCI Express bus, PCI bus, etc., would not match)

BIOS problem!!


Why do you want to overclock it? Have you changed the cooling system? Overclocking might fry your processor if the cooling cannot keep up with the heat. Does your motherboard support overclocking? The option might be locked. There might be a jumper on the board that you have to mingle in order to enable that setting.

Hi all just precautionary inquiry, thank you.


do not plug in that processor as it is not supported by that motherboard. You will need to upgrade your motherboard to one capaple of running a p4 prescott chip(pretty much any sckt 478 board that has 800fsb). More info on your current board http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/mv/mv_proc.htm
