Question about Gigabyte GA-8PE800 PRO Motherboard

1 Answer

Where can I buy a GA-8PE800 Pro motherboard?

A couple capacitors went out on the old one. Need to replace with exact board to avoid re-saving all the data. Can't seem to locate one on the net. Any assistance would certainly be appreciated.

    I was told to replace it with same or all programs etc. would have to be saved and reinstalled. Is this bull?

    Jason:

    You've been very helpful. The problem is that I wouldn't have any idea how to install an OS.

    Resaving all the data? "The data" is stored on your hard drive, which is typically unaffected by a motherboard failure. Is there some motherboard specific data you have that is irreplaceable?

Sorry Jack, I exhausted most of my resources and did not come up with one. This mobo will be a big pain to find. I would say buy a new board and unforunately reinstall your operating system. I know it's a pain, but I don't think you're going to find this board without some extreme luck.

What you could do, is find a similar board with the same north and south bridge, same chipset. This will allow you to not have to reinstall your OS.

It is possible to keep your current data set and still install a different motherboard. It requires disabling all plug'n'play support built into the OS before swapping the board. Then you install the new set of chipset drivers for the new board. I have made it work before, but its certainly not the cleanest way to do this, as you well know.

Sorry for not being anymore help. I can usually find old mobo's fairly easily, but this one must be a needle in a haystack.

    While not reinstalling your operating system can be done, it is highly recommended to do so. It can be done, as I described above, but again, I do not recommend doing so.

Hi,#
Yes they can be replaced if you were thinking of doing it yourself, desoldering the old ones is the hard bit, however if you were looking to get someone to do it for you I suspect the price may well go at least around the same price as simply replacing the board as its available

Hi,
The ATX 12v ( 4 pin Connector ) is For The CPU Power.
This could Indicate, either A Faulty CPU.
Or a fault To The Motherboards ( BGA ) or CPU Socket Holder.
Or alternatively, The Actual PSU Itself is Faulty.
You can obtain A CPU Socket Tester from e-bay. And A PSU Tester.

Hope This Helps Mike @ Compurepair.

Gigabyte actually has a very good website. I pasted a link below to the CPU support list.

As far as what would be the best to buy I would say the closest to the top that you can afford ignoring the P4-Extreme CPUs.
