    Sorry, new here. I thought it was for search. Well, that's awkward... I have a problem with the installation of a new CPU. It's an Intel Q9400 on a Gigabyte motherboard GA-965P-DS3. My computer starts (fans and hds) but I have no bips from the mobo. I updated my bios to the last update (F14). Here is the link to the mobohttp://www.gigabyte.com/products/product... . I finally reinstalled my old CPU and everything still works. Please help me. I'm desperate.

    (Note* If you only have two ram memory modules, install them in Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3. They MUST be the same ram memory modules, though. If so you will be using your ram memory in a Dual Channel capacity. Both ram memory modules team up on the task. Helps, but isn't anything to write home to Mom about. You get a 1 to 2 percent increase in ram memory 'power'. NOT up to 30 percent as people seem to think ) I'm looking at the manual, and specifically the BIOS Setup utility. (Full name, hardly ever used) Page 31. Note the navigation options listed. The BIOS Setup utility automatically opens to the Main menu. Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) Press the Enter key. (You are just looking around right now. Don't worry) Page 46. MB Intelligent Tweaker. Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight System Voltage Control. By factory default settings it is supposed to be stating - Manual. Press the Enter key. You have two options; Manual, and Auto. Use the appropriate key, and highlight Auto. Press the Enter key. You will now be asked if you want to Save Changes. Yes. Use the appropriate key, highlight Y, or Yes. Press the Enter key. The computer should now restart, and BIOS should automatically set all system voltages. Let's see now if the Q9400 is recognized. ALSO: Before you change anything, write down ALL of the settings in MB Intelligent Tweaker. If something goes wrong, you have the original settings to go back to ) Apologizes for what may look to be rambling, and mispelling. I am typing in a 'ticker-tape' format now. (Su-cks)

    So, I changed System Voltage Control to AUTO with the old CPU, restarted, and then installed the Q9400. But I have the same result, black screen, fans and hds start a first time for 3-4 seconds, then everything goes off. Then restart on its own (hds and fans) but no bip from mobo, and nothing more. If you have any other idea, I'm ready to try it. But, I don't know, it seems hopeless. Maybe I should get another Mother Board...

    You ARE following Anti-Static Precautions right? I know that seems like an innane statement at this point, and after shuffling CPU's back, and forth. I think that Q9400 is no good. Where did it come from?

  • Neek Gerd
    Neek Gerd Oct 28, 2012

    Yeah, I'm very careful about Anti-Static Precautions. I had no problem with my old CPU neither. The Q9400 comes from amazon, I got it from this vendor :http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aag/main?ie=UTF8... don't know if the link will work, anyway, its name is BetterChoice, and I bought it from amazon.ca. Its ratings were pretty good, so I was confident. I might be wrong though.

  • Neek Gerd
    Neek Gerd Oct 30, 2012

    Just a heads up. The vendor gave me a refund for the shipping, to send the CPU back to them. They'll have techs running tests on the CPU.

CPU Support List

Intel Core2 Duo - Model Q9400
1) Yorkfield Core technology
2) Built on the 45nm architecture
3) Natively uses a 1333MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (1333MHz FSB)

4) BIOS version -> F14

Uses the Intel P965 motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Hmmm, states support for -> 65nm architecture processors

The Q9400 is based on the 45nm architecture.
I'm guessing the F14 BIOS version will allow support.

The voltage range of a Q9400 is .085 to 1.3625 Volts (DC)

What is the 'old' processor model number, and do you know the voltage range?

Did you get the Q9400 from a reputable source?

Have you been following Anti-Static Precautions?

Using CPU-Z from CPUID.com, and the old processor installed, is F14 reputed to be the BIOS version that is installed? Just want to make sure.

Sometimes it takes 3 to 4 times of a 'Hard Start', for BIOS to recognize a new Processor.
(Computer turned all the way off, not Restart. WAIT 1 minute, turn back on. Hard Start )

Still no?
What is the frequency rate ('Speed') of the DDR2 Sdram ram memory, you have installed?

Post back in a Comment.

(Bet you're going through some Thermal Paste, huh?)

    Thanks for these details and your answer. So the old processor was an Intel Core 2 Duo at 1.83 GHz, one of these :http://ark.intel.com/products/32427/Inte... or http://ark.intel.com/products/27254/Inte... so voltage was VID Voltage Range 1.075V-1.250V or 1.0375V-1.300V. I'm a total newbie with this voltage specs. Also I got the new CPU from an Amazon saler, he has a good rating and answered me less than 24h later, with a few solutions. None has worked, obviously, but I'm still in contact. I did the mountage 3-4 times, each time being careful with esp and with new thermal paste. For the DDR2 speed, I have no idea for now, I'll look on the web where I can find this info. The saler told me I should reset the CMOS, that's what I'm doing right now, will see. I'll get back with more.

  • Neek Gerd
    Neek Gerd Oct 26, 2012

    So... I tried to reset the CMOS, and installed the new CPU. Nothing new. I never changed much in bios anyway. I checked for my memory frequency, is 667 possible? (seen in bios menu).

  • joecoolvette
    joecoolvette Oct 26, 2012

    When looking at what the processor is read the Part Number on the top;http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_2/TYP... andhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Int... Yes, to 667MegaHertz. The processor's Front Side Bus, (FSB), is 667MHz. Your DDR2 Sdram ram memory (SO-DIMM), could also be 667MHz. PC2-5300. There's something about the 65nm architecture the Processor you have been using, and the 45nm architecture of the Q9400, which makes me think this may be the problem. Out of curiosity; is the CPU Voltage changeable, or the Multiplier for the CPU (Processor), changeable in BIOS?

  • joecoolvette
    joecoolvette Oct 26, 2012

    WoW! I don't believe I have done that in 8 years! We're talking about a DESKTOP motherboard, and you posted two examples of laptop processors. I went off in left field, and based my added comments on them! Bahahahaha! Hoo-Kay! Let's go back a step. What is the Part Number on the top of the old Processor? (Sleep? What? Oh yeah I've heard of that!) Your Ram Memory could be 667MegaHertz, though, lol!

  • Neek Gerd
    Neek Gerd Oct 27, 2012

    Well, I think I am the one to blame to misled you, due to my lack of research on my old CPU, I did this by memory. But now I'm more prepared, I did an imgur album of screencaps of CPU-Z, I think it will be way more easy.http://imgur.com/a/H0dBM I did say a lot of things that appear to be wrong. I'm really sorry for that, I hope these caps will help you more than I could. Thanks again for your help. And for the CPU Voltage, I have no idea, I never get in the BIOS that much, except for changing boot order one or two times.

  • joecoolvette
    joecoolvette Oct 28, 2012

    Great! CPU-Z automatically opens on the CPU tab. Starting from here; A) Intel Core 2 Duo E6300. Core technology - Conroe. Architecture - 65NanoMeter. Core Voltage - 1.264 Volts (DC) Bus Speed -266.6 MegaHertz. (Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'. 266.6 X 4 = 1066.4 Here we can see all the parameters for the E6300,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Int... FSB is rated at 1066MHz. Voltage range is 0.85 volts to 1.500 Volts. (DC) Multiplier is x7. Again, the difference of the 65nm architecture of the E6300, compared to the architecture of the Q9400, (45nm), concerns me. I think it is time you went into BIOS Setup, and manually change the CPU parameters, WITH the Q9400 installed. This may take a bit of 'back and forth' communication for us. I have seen where after the solution was rated, that the communication may stop soon afterwards. Let's hope it doesn't until we are finished. (Your ram memory is seen by looking at the Memory tab, and Serial Precense Detect tab. DDR2 Sdram is 'Double-pumped'. 333.3 x 2 = 666.6MHz, or rounded off to 667MHz. That is for ram memory Slot 1. FSB to DRAM ratio is a 4 to 5 ratio. (FSB:DRAM) Makes the 666.6MHz bump up to around 800MHz. (Double-pumped so shows 400MHz)

  • Neek Gerd
    Neek Gerd Oct 28, 2012

    Well that enlightens me a lot. But I can't change any CPU parameters with the Q9400 installed, because there is nothing on screen when it's in, and even the mobo doesn't seemed to boot. Though, I'll try what you wrote on top, changing to AUTO the system voltage control. It seems straightforward and easy to do. I'll get back once it's done, and tested with the Q9400 installed. Fingers crossed. Thanks again, I'm really glad about what you're doing for me.

The chipsets don't match. The mobo is P965 and the CPU listed is LGA775.

    Happens. But for a tech such as yourself it's no big deal. All one has to do is look at your solutions, and see you KNOW what you're 'talking' about. Glad you are here. Follow along with this one also if you would, could always use the extra knowledge. Regards, joecoolvette (It's never about 'points'. It's about helping )

Asus motherboard a8v-vm jumper setting motherbord on but cpu fan not ON


You do not use a jumper to run the CPU fan. There will be a small 3 or 4 pin plug near the CPU mount and you can plug the wire from the fan into that plug only. If the one on the motherboard has 3 pins and your plug has 4, you can use it anyway; just be sure the slot on the back of the plug matches the side of the one on the board.

After changing power supply, motherboard still doesn't start


Asus huh.. okay your problem is one of the following ^_^
1- either the CPU Fan is not attached well or loos, that will cause the CPU to melfunction
2- BIOS damaged, well if the mother beard doesn't start at all then this is your problem, Change the BIOS at any ASUS local agent
3- CPU damaged, if the computer fan starts working but the screen doesn't and you are suer the fan is tightly and correctly attached.. then this problem remains in CPU.. @_@ I really hope its not.

Motherboard will not start


It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.

Hookup all case wires start reset hdled start led and all other wires from power suply still can not get the motherboard to start up no fans no ddr2 no internet lite fan on cpu will not start cpu is new...


Hi waltbarber,

Determining if it works is like detective work. What I do, is take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd or otherwise) the CPU, and one bank of memory. (tha's not a required eliminate, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. Now, you should get the power supply on, and the cpu. If those don't power up, it's then either one of the five elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, or motherboard. The next step is to replace each one of the first four to see if you get any change. If no change, then I usually get another board that I can test the first four, and make sure that they work. After that, then I know it's a DOA board.

Good Luck,

Mark

CPU FAN ERROR PROBLEM


Check to make sure the CPU fan is plugged into the motherboard CPU fan power pins. Should be a 3pin port on the motherboard near the cpu with a white piece of plastic on the one side of it to show you are to plug in the cable correctly.

See if the fan spins at all on start up, or even when the computer is off, spin it with your finger and see if it gets hung up anywhere while it spins.

When the computer gets zapped, virtually any part can be damaged, including RAM, disk drives, connectors on cabinet (eg USB), PCI cards, etc.

Usually the CPU stays safe, as the motherboard blows before CPU.

When you get this kind of damage is always better taking the computer to a repair shop, instead of DIY, as there is need to test all parts.

Ensure that you assembled Motherboard, CPU , and heath-sink properly.

Try first starting the computer with a minimal set of devices plugged to the motherboard, with only PSU, RAM (1 module), Video card if needed and CPU/Fan.

If there is no power at all then it is likely a bad PSU, if it starts but not screen, it is either a bad RAM or the motherboard had not been assembled properly, or had been damaged during assemblage.
