Question about Intel D945GNT Motherboard

1 Answer

My computer just won't restart--I thought the switch had failed, so I just put the wires together for the momentary start button function, but no go. I can't think what else to check--I already put a new power supply in.

    I believe all the connectors are plugged in--there is just no way to even get the power supply started. I have way too much computer experience, and I have never run into this before.

Have you tried clearing the cmos memory? but put the jumper back to the correct position and the battery is not dead, then i would dissconnect everything so it would be left with psu plugged in to the m/board, cpu/fan,pwr switch nothing else except a speaker unless it has one built-in, you should hear some beeping from the speaker when you turn-on if not it`s dead R.I.P.

I plugged in everything and the computer won't start. I'm sure the buttons are working and so is my power supply. It's a new board it can't be broken.


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

I recently got a Vibe keyboard and mouse as a gift. Both are wireless and use one USB plug together. The model number is Kb-262. I can get the mouse to connect, but the keyboard will glitch and suddenly...


yer you are,switch the computer off, then plug in the keyboard & mouse...i'm thinking the GREEN ps2 port for the mouse & USB for the keyboard...
put batteries in them both,make sure their not dead batteries, then locate the little connect button on the bottom of them both, & the one on the receiver as well.
get a pin or something of the sort, so you can press these connect buttons.
switch the computer on, then once its booted up..press the button on the receiver @ the same time as the connect button on the keyboard,if not then the receiver first then the keyboard.
once connected, do the same with the mouse......receiver button then mouse connect button or both @ the same time...
you'll get it in the end,you'll need to do this ever time you change the batteries.

GOOD LOOK!

Mother board power switch


I don't know what you are asking for exactly, so I'll through out possibilities.

A) The Power On switch located inside the plastic Power On button assembly is a Momentary Contact Switch.
It is an ATX power on switch.

This is a generic example of a Power On switch that fits Many models,

http://www.amazon.com/Power-Motherboard-Cable-Switch-Button/dp/B00345WH4A/ref=pd_cp_e_2

B) The plastic front of the computer is a Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

Intel Support > Intel D865GLC motherboard > Product Guide,

To find out if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply, perform the simple test using a jumper wire.
If you do not know how to perform this test, and wish to, post in a Comment.

The power switch has broken to my k7sem motherboard. Can I jump the pins to get it to work? Do I need all the switch and led leads on as well? I just need to fire up for a breif time.


if the power button has broken, for an emergency fix you can cut the cables and touch them together with-out a problem, just touch them mind you, dont twist them together or anything (it is a momentary switch) just make sure they dont touch the casing anywhere.

Case switch connected to motherboard is messed up. i need a new switch for the case or the configuration for the pins on the motherboard to be able to use a new case/new switch


The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.

It is a Momentary Contact Switch, and is named an ATX power on switch.
This ATX Power On switch I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The plastic front panel of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The pin area on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the computer, or tell me the manufacturer name, and Model Number of the motherboard, and let me see if I can find a Pinout for it's Front Panel header.
(What pins the cables connect to)

My compture workes sometimes and sometimes it dont.the power button was dented in after a rock fell on it. it seem like it may be a short in the power button . i am using the end of a pincle eraser to turn...


The motherboard has a pair of pins that is connected to the switch. The switch is a momentary contact, and when depressed the motherboard detects the momentary contact and starts up.

You can use any momentary contact switch as a replacement

Where to plug in start button wires, i have nothing on the screen


here is a direct link to the motherboard manual that will have the pin layout for the power and reset switches on your case: http://dlcdnas.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s133/e1025_p4s133.pdf

just plug the labeled wires coming from the front of th case into the pins shown in the manual and if the power switch still doesn't work try reversing the way it is plugged into the pings (switch the positive (+) and Negative (-)) and then try it again.

HP Pavillion 400 Power switch problem???


Could be your power supply is broken. That is a very common problem. Sometimes the computer will keep on restarting when the power supply is about to give way. I doubt it's the motherboard that is causing the problem, but then again i have never had a motherboard fail on me.

ASUS A7N8X-X RESET SWITCH


Well now.
A7N8X-X board. The reset switch is not needed to start the PC.
One does not need the reset switch to shut down the PC.
So you think it may be the Power switch that is not functioning?

What version of windows is being used? Please list the typr od hard drive being used? Serial ATA SATA or IDE?
