Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard
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?
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.
