Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a used D865GBF / D865PERC Intel motherboard installed on my computer. I don't have AGP video card installed. After installation, cpu is running. But no picture on monitor. I heared 6 beeps during BIOS booting. I found from mb menual that 6 beeps indicate memory failured. I use a pair of 256 mb DDR 184, 533 and I strictly followed mb menual to installed memories on mb.
I don't know why no video on mb.
1. Do I have to use a AGP video card instead mb video card?
2. Do I have to switch another pair of memory?
3. Any suggestions to fix the problem?
Thanks very much.
While the system may be emitting a memory error beep code, that obviously is not the only issue here. If there is onboard video and it isn't working, try this:
1: Unplug system
2: Open case
3: Look for the CR2032 flat watch-style battery located on the motherboard, usually around where the front panel connections are
4: Remove this battery using a flathead screwdriver to push on the tiny 'hook' of metal holding it in. DO NOT PRY THE BATTERY OUT.
5: Let system sit for 10 seconds and put the battery back in.
6: Power the system back up
What this does is drain the system's memory completely. If it was perhaps set to use the AGP video card (which isn't installed, hence no video), this setting should be cleared and you should get onboard video.
Failing this, really, your only choice is a new motherboard, or to install an AGP card and see if it works. If you don't feel like hunting down a replacement board, I'd just order a cheap AGP card. If the AGP card works, use it. If not, then your motherboard is really pooched and you'll need a new one anyways.
About the memory beep issue:
You can google memtest86 and download that program. Burn it to a bootable CD and run the memory test; it should tell you if the memory is good or not.
hope that helps!

Try installing only one memory module and check the display.
Make sure you have connected the P4 connector of SMPS to the Motherboard.
When you Switch ON the PC just check if CPU is getting too much heated.
I hope this steps will help you resolve you problem
all the best
