No Video (Intel D945gnt) from boot

Once the pc is powered on I don't hear any beeps. All fans inside the pc are running. I have attempted to get a video signal from on board video connector and also pci video card without luck. I have disconnected power to hard drive and also remove memory at this time and I do get (3) beeps from my motherboard but still no video. I have attempted to remove remove and reinsert cmos battery and reconnected everything afterward still without any luck.

    I have 4 gig of ram, I test one by one still no display. Ram was not replaced just the motherboard. When I do not insert the ram I get (3) long error beeps,which are correct for my motherboard. Now can defective ram cause not to get to post without any errors ?

    I have the same problem with the same board D945GNT... Same f... problem.

  • MiniMoke70 Feb 27, 2009

    Exact same problem with me. 've alsoI tried a PCI-E video difference.

    PC had been running fine until about Dec 08. I'm not sure if it had Windows update enabled? Sinec then it has not started. It is a test PC and I've only got around to trying to fix it now.

    It is interesting that this is quite an old board, but yet 3 people have expierenced the same problem at roughly the same time.

This is the solution for your problems,

Just downlad the 2007 BIOS version iso. Burn it to CD and let this process update the BIOS. If your board does not display video, remove all componet (Hard Disk, CD-DVD, external sound card, PCI Express card) and use the integraded video card. Also move the jumpers to reset the BIOS and turn on the PC.

If the PC doesn't diplay video don't worry, do it again once it turn on. The use the CD to downgrade the BIOS. Also try using the PCI Express video card o another PCI video card.

Only need the PC turn ON to upgrade the BIOS to 2007 version. Download it from Intel website.

It work perfect to me,

I'm having the same problem with my ECS K7S5A ver 3.1. The problem is that that I reset my FSB to an unsupported frequency using a 3rd party BIOS.

Unfortunately this is not the solution you're after, yet probably the only option. To fix the problem you're going to have to contact the manufacturer of the motherboard and let them know that you need a new BIOS ROM chip. You'll have to send the board to them and they will replace the chip for you. Depending on if you're still under warranty or not there may be a fee involved.

Sorry to see it happen to someone else, it is quite devastating.

    Rather odd, have you tried a different monitor?

  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert Feb 11, 2009

    This is really strange. If dell replaced your motherboard this issue should have cleared up. You might consider taking it to a local shop and get their input on the issue. If they get the same idea as i did, Dell probably never replaced your board.

    Okay. It's still odd that you're encountering the same issue. How many sticks of RAM does that system have? Was the RAM also replaced?

  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert Feb 12, 2009

    I don't know. It probably can. It is rather rare for ALL of your memory to fail, and especially at once. Have you tried a different Power Supply? It is possible the Power Supply is no longer pumping enough power into the system so it can POST. While the system appears to be online, it's not doing anything.

Intel D945GNT not booting


Aug 16, 2014 | Intel Computers & Internet

1 Answer

NO DISPLAY on screen but processor fan is work

If it seems like the computer booted up all the way except the screen is blank.

If so try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok and works, then the video card inside the computer is good, but the original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If it does not seem like the computer booted up all the way try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Maybe your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan turn on or hard drive spin.

Desktop will not boot at all. Turn it on and it will begin once and quit. Second attempt it begins to run ( fans ) at what seems half speed. Occasionaly it will start with fans at full speed. It will not...

IF you are sure its not a problem with the monitor--and from what you say it IS getting some power and if you are not getting any beeps--Can you boot to the BIOS? If not ,could be a problem with the power supply-check output voltage and/or test with known good one (cheap on Ebay).

Hardware Monitor not working- Intel D945GNT

Not sure what chip you are using, but your problem is one which I have had and solved by the most extreme heat dissipation methods possible...I even went to the extremity of packaging dry ice in Plastic and using an external fan to literally produce arctic temperatures inside the case.
It did attenuate or reduce the heating problem and the Intel hardware monitors took note of that, but I also notice some degradation in the extent of the graphic presentation of the on screen diagnostic display of temperature, fan speeds, etc.

So, with your new problem, since you apparently responded to the three long beeps by adding a keyboard or other peripheral, and solved it, a full statement of that problem with all specs would be appropriate, unless you can no longer read the display.

Intel Motherboard D945GNT Booting problem.

Sounds like a power supply problem - these really are a hands-on situation to resolve successfully.
Power supplies can 'appear' to be performing right, but once a load is put on them, they can not supply enough power; they're tricky to test accurately.
ANY desent computer repair place would be able to test it in an instant - take you machine in (maybe with the covers off ready to inspect, make it easy for them) and they should have a power supply tester at the ready they can wack on and see what's going on.
If you certainly don't want to have them charge you labour for any fixing, make sure you stand your ground - some can be pushy. If it was not the power supply, tell them you will check out some other ideas you have before leaving it with them.
We'll help you as best we can - like I said, dicky power problems are usually more a hands-on solution.
