Question about Intel D945GNT Motherboard

1 Answer

Alienware Desktop will not boot

I have a Alienware desktop that will not boot, I have no video displayed. I have replaced the motherboard and I am having the same issue. My motherboard is a Intel D945gnt. When I boot the pc I dont have any error on the display or beeping errors. I have attempted to disconnect my hard drive and dvd rom and only left one stick of memory installed to troubleshoot this issue. But still have not figured this out ?

    Thanks for your help. Power supply set to 115v , P4 connector & main connector are both connected to motherboard.

    When I remove the Ram I get (3) long beeps but still no display. Please provide me with some general troubleshooting steps, I am at a lost. What else could cause my system not to boot to post ? Intel has already replaced the motherboard for me.

    I have tested with (2) different monitors and have also attempted to use a pci video card , but still I have no display. Keep in mind this is a new motherboard from intel. I have no error beeps ! What could be causing this ? I have disconnected all other device from pc and now I just have one stick on ram connected to motheboard (dvd rom and hd are disconnected) Thanks for you help again.

    Try a different CPU and make sure the pins aren't bent on your CPU that your using now.

    Does your power supply have the p4 connector on it plus the main connector that goes to the motherboard? If so maybe try connecting both the main connector and the P4 connector to the motherboard and make sure the power supply is set to 115v and NOT 230V

Try removing the RAM as well and see if it beeps...

    When you power on the system without a RAM it should give long and continous beep, in that case your motherboard is most probably ok. Try using another RAM. It should work if everything else is fine with the motherboard.

    Good luck!

Double check cable from the motherboard to your hardisk likeIDE or SATA together with the power cord
just make sure if its fully inserted. boot up the pc press delete to check UPTHE BOIS IF THE HARDISK is connected. RAM( Random Access Memory) maybe defective. replace it to thenew one and boot up your desktop. sometimes if the onboard /vga, (video graphics adpter) are defective its also beepingrapidly. also try to clean up your ram using pencil eraser.

More than likely your on-board video card is bad, buy a PCI video card or an AGP card and replace the video board. when you boot up go into bios and disable on-board bios so the computer will detect the new video card. hope this helps.

Foxconn Motherboards Led Boot display

Without more detailed information, I really can't help you decipher that code... Since you don't know which specific Foxconn motherboard you're working with, it might be best if you contact Alienware Customer Support for detailed information:

Good luck; let us know what you learn...
