Question about Intel Motherboard
I have an Intel BOXD945GNTL motherboard. There is no power until I pull the 12Volt 4 pin power connection from the Motherboard but I get no video and the DVD drives do not open. Is the Motherboard bad or the CPU chip? What does the 12Volt 4 pin power connector do anyway. Thanks, Rhytheman
As you say,the motherboard or the cpu may be the problem, as you need to connect the 4 pin connector as this is the independent 12v power supply for the cpu and not the ZIF socket like older cpu's. You may be getting power to the board when the cpu is not connected, but when it comes to the cpu taking over because the bios has not been checked, nothing else will run, including drives. If you do not get as far as the bios showing on the screen there is a good chance that the cmos chip is damaged on the board normally either from new or because of the board being stressed from flexing when fitting components to the board which is easily done unless the motherboard is supported by something underneath when attaching parts. If the board is already fitted into the chassis of the pc, remove it and double check that it is not shorting on the chassis of your tower.
