My Asrock motherboard will not boot. I have A 2.4
processor and 1GB . The problem is nothing appears on the
screen when I turn it on. I have checked the graphics card and
concluded that is not the problem. It has to be the moterboard or CPU.
When I turn the Computer on it gives power to everything,then stop cpu & smps . check RAM SMPS HDD & DISPLAY CARD ok.

Re: AsRock Motherboard won't boot. Need Advice.
First check the power supply or swap another.
connect only power 20 or 24 connect and test power on. no off? (no video because no power to cpu by 4 pin or 6 pin connector)
plug 4 pin connector and test power on. if on and off check cpu power section (mosfets) if burned one pls remove ... you can test short by touch the mosfet by finger (burning heat)

Check this site for jumper settings. Download the manual. Go first to page 11 and find clear CMOS jumper. That will be number 17. Then go to page 24 for the correct jumper settings. Jumper should be on the pins 1 and 2. That's the default settings.
If the jumper is set already to 1 and 2. Clear the CMOS by putting the jumper on 2 and 3. It should be off when you are going to set the jumper. This is to make sure that the settings for your motherboard is set to its original settings.
If you are going to clear the CMOS settings, you will have turn the computer on after clearing it and then turn it off again. Put the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Now make sure that computer is totally off. Uplugged the computer just to make sure when you are doing this.
Note: To test also the motherboard if it is working, do not connect the other pheriperals such as network card, sound card, and other cards that is not buit-in. Also drives such as Hard Drive and CDROM drives.
Check for beep codes. Short beeps tells you that the Video card is not inserted properly. Long beeps tells you that the memory card is not in place correctly.
Just remove the Video card or Memory card and then place it back again.
Try chaning the bios battery to a new one. Then leave it plugged in for a little while and try starting it up. If it still doesn't come on, then it's down to either the motherboard or the processor. If the processor is bad, the motherboard will not power up. Also, check the motherboard to see if there are any signs of swollen capacitors or burnt items on it.
The Gigabyte website has drivers for the onboard soundcard available, but according to the specs for the Gigabyte GA8ST800 Motherboard there is not built in video card on that model so I'm guessing that is not what you have. See the links below as both have specifications and pictures of their boards that should help clear up which board you have. . The ASROCK P4i45GL does have the Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics adapter built in, do if that is the MB you have, you should be able to use the drivers linked below.
