Question about Intel D845WN (KD845WNPAK10) Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot failure pentium 4

When I start my computer: A Pentium 4 - 1.8ghz on a Intel D845WN Mother board. Sometimes it loads up fine. But more often than not it just does nothing once powered up. The light is on on the motherboard showing power but the only way I have managed to get it started is by removing the cmos battery for a few seconds while unplugged then when I plug the power back in it works fine. When I restart via windows it seems to have no problems, but if I shut down and turn off power at the wall the same problem again until I remove the cmos battery as above. I have replaced the battery with a new one but the same thing happens. I have tried leaving the power on between shut downs but no difference. Please help me, arggg

Re: Boot failure pentium 4

Here is a temporary fix, but you may like it as a permanent one. Use the Windows hibernate mode. It actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now. I think your system is trying to reject the power-saving features selected in Windows or at CMOS settings. Try turning off (or disabling) one feature at a time. I still think hibernate is the way to go. Here is a useful tip: to force hibernate (after it has been enabled) select START-SHUT DOWN and hover over STANDBY button and then hit the SHIFT key. The STANDBY button will turn into the HIBERNATE button. This is a quick way to enter hibernate. Remember to enable SYSTEM RESTORE mode so that if anything goes wrong during this "experiment", you can easily restore Windows system. I also use RESTORE but I also "clean house" once a month by turning it off and Disk scan and defrag and turning it back on.

Pls provide new processor's will match KOB 845GL NDSMx board

It uses a Socket 478 for an Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 400MHz. You are somewhat limited being this a older (in computer yrs) model. This is the fastest and for some reason the cheapest I could find.
