Question about Gigabyte Computers & Internet
I have install the above motherboard into the case and wired it up, but it will not boot, the CPU fan is running so I assume that their is juice going to the motherboard, the case lights-up, the lights on the keyboard light-up, all the cooling fan are running, but nothing on the monitor, it's blank. I wonder if my putting a 4 pin 12v connection to the boards 8 pin connection would make a difference????. I am baffled.
I have had a Gigabyte mobo not boot due to a pushed pin on the 24-pin mobo connector. I fixed and it booted normally. In your case it seems to be the video card. Are you using the DVI or HDMI output. Use the DVI first to setup your card on a monitor not a TV. HDMI is notorious for not working on a new build. Also reseat your video card and be sure non of the pins on the board itself are pushed in, or stuck in the out position it can happen. Also be sure your card is in the top slot or the 16X slot for the first boot. The one closest to the CPU. This may help. -Devin

SOURCE: I've got a new Gigabyte
Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:
The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.
Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:
New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.
When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

Testimonial: "Thanx - cleared up the confusion about P1. Additional tests are pointing to a d.o.a. motherboard."

no this is not normal
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your
"((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and
are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
