Question about Gigabyte GA-8I915P Duo Pro Motherboard

1 Answer

Toasted? I have the ga-81915p pro.On a beautiful sunny day(sarcasm),i can't seemingly turn on the pc.the power led only light up for a tick of a second,and there is this weird smell in the Power supply unit.I decided to change the PSU but this one has the same smell.after I tested the psu on another mobo,it does work,but for some reasons minedon't only works(even with the old psu) when I pluck out the 12v CPU fan supply(works here means the power led light up),but i can't hear any beep nor any indications on the monitor that my computer is working or broken. Somebody please tell me the solution to the prob(and fast)? Please and thank you

I would check the connector from the psu to the motherboard where it plugs in and check that there isnt any plastic melted socket on the terminals as it may be shorting on the motherboard and the fan is drawing the fumes out making look as if its the power supply

    I didnt suspect the psu, i said to check the psu to motherboard connection as at the motherboard connection, that is where the smell sometimes comes fron because the connector melts in the motherboard, either that or the board has shorted at some point.

Why does my seiko sne039 only work in direct light and the second hand advances 2 seconds with each movement

Its ticking in two second intervals because it is very low on power. It should keep correct time and eventually settle down. It needs a long exposure to a nice bright sunny day and it will be fine once it has a good charge for definate.

I got Gigabyte GA-81915P PRO Motherboard. Swich on the power there was a bang - power supply caps were blown. Got new power supply when I switch it on it immediately switches off - nothing on the monitor....

Have you tried checking if you motherboard had been damaged when your power supply exploded?
Cause theres a big chance that your motherboard will be damaged, cause explosion of power supply will trigger excessive voltage to your motherboard.

So if your motherboard is damaged,there will be no chance for your computer to turn on even if you change your Video and Memory Card.

i think you mean upgrade and yes, if you want to run latest games and good performance you need to change your rig. the gigabyte ga-81915p is very limited, in case of processors used most are old like P4,celeron D and P4HT you need something that can support core 2 series.

You will have to download a software and install it so that your sound device can work.
Try this link directly to the manufacturer's website:
GA-81915P Duo Pro

Download the Microsoft UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) Bus driver (Full Multi-language version ) first and install it. Then download the C-Media Function driver for Intel 925/915 family.

Good Luck to you!
