Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard

1 Answer

No Video DG33PR

Yesterday I installed this mobo and everything worked fine. It ran all day going in and out of screen saver with no problems (but never getting to hibernate). After leaving the house for a couple hours I assume it went into hibernate, and once I got home, the video would not come back on. I reluctantly cut the power and rebooted, and still nothing. I have tested the screen, swapped out the power supply with a known working one, swapped the ram, reset the cmos jumper, and still no results.

Does anyone have any idea why this would've happened? I have read about the BIOS not being up to date on this mobo, but why would it work first with no problems, and then stop a few hours later?

    Hey Rod, thanks for the comments. Since this post, I have done some of those steps. Definitely not the monitor or cabl comp (works fine in other computer). Not power supply (known working one in there). Got a known working stick of ram in. But with only those things in (Ram, Power supply, screen, processor, and mobo), fans run, lights are on, but no display. I have read that this mobo has a very out of date bios, so I am attempting to update that with no display using a CDROM update disk in recovery mode with a recovery (.bio) file on it.

    This has been driving me nuts as this is brand new, and the install went off without a hitch! I'll let you know if I come up with anything.
    Thanks again for the reply.

Maybe it takes the system to get use to it new settings, here something you dont want to hear from me its a lot of troubleshooting on your part, disconnect everything except one know good stick of ram, one good working monitor, one good working power supply, and remove all other wire connectors, extra cards, start from basics and add one peace at a time until you find the bad peace of equipment or bad vedio adapter, sound card.

also set motherboard and software back to windows default setting until we resolve the issues it may not just be one you may have 2 or more problems,

it is alot of work or work on vedio partion of the problem, the card of overheated, the power connection maybe fualty, monitor cable may have a short in the power cord or the adapter plug in the cable or card itself shorted the vedio out, make sure every thing is set 120v not 220v, smell the vedio card for burnent or overhead part, check the curciutry, try a different lot unless it is a agp card than i would say its the mother board itself.

bois never go bad, the overclocking and alot of power is the biggist killers for motherboard, some one shorts it out.

make sure all the chip are seated firmily.

I have dh55tc, i7 860, 4gb transcend ram, xfx hd 5770, tagan stonerock -u37 600w psu, Its assembled in March 2010 & ran fine for 5 months. One day while watching movie it suddenly froze, i restarted...

3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.

Black screen on boot on biostar mcp6p m2+

That board has a built in video card if I have the right info. If you are using an external video ie plug in card then you need to make sure the onboard video is disabled or that the plug in card is designated as the main video card. Not doing either of those will cause the black screen.

No video display

hello mr,carrera :) ...

i think u have only two choices u have to do :

1: you disconnect the power cable from you PSU , then reset the BIOS using the jumper pre-installed on your board , check the manual for this " Clear CMOS " ,,

then try again , if not then

2: u will have to replace your bios with an updated one of the exact motherboard model , you can do this easily cause Biostar have the socket of Bios ,not mounted in the motherboard ,,,

so, i am pretty sure that its a bios issue , like 95% ,,,,
the 5% u don't wanna know it ,,,,( Bad PSU might affected the power ct. of your Board :( ,,,, but try Bios 1st....

D102GGC2 Mobo MDM & NetWk chip problem

This is the link to the manufacturer's website and the Vista drivers for that model.

The network is a Realtek 8139, which Vista should automatically install, but using the manufacturer's recommended drivers might be the best thing.

The T-5082 does have a few expansion slots for a new modem or network card.

No sound device in Sounds and Audio Devices after Realtek Sound Driver install

Download the attachment I found, unpack it into your folder of choice.
Then move over to the control panel and select that "PCI Device". Rightclick and install the audio bus drivers I provided for the PCI Device. During installation Windows should find something like Microsoft UAA Bus driver, I don't know the exact name. Do a restart after installation and everything should work fine.

ECS GeForce6100SM-M powers off without warning.

The problem was the onboard ethernet controller.Use a different PCI network card and disable the nVidia controller in your hardware profile. Flashing bios only caused me to detect a PCI device that was not there! The bios also has a "soft-off by power button" function that cannot be disabled so setting window's power button setting to do nothing could help depending on your computer case design and is also recommended as part of the solution.

Pete, did you try the onboard video, also?
When you tried the add-on video card, did you change the setting in the BIOS?

Wont send anything to screen

You tried two different video cards and you still don't have any video. But everything else works fine. Have you tried the video cards in other slots? Take out all the other cards, like modem card, etc. If you have two memory chips, take one out. Now try it. If none of this works It maybe the monitor. Make sure it has power to it.

Desperate for help with boot problem!

Unfortunately you haven't given enough information. I will assume that this unit was working at some time and that you tried to improve it in some manner. Actually what this sounds like is an overloading of the power supply. If you recently added any hardware I would start there (i.e., remove it). If that doesn't work then try a different HDD (that is properly formatted, of course). You could also start from your last step and add hardware one at a time until it works.
