Compatable gigabyte ga 81915pm motherboard

I have a gigabyte ga 81915pm motherboard which has stopped booting up ( doesnt even load BIOS) I thought I would buy another motherboard and put my old Pentium 4 processor in it. But what type of motherboard is compatable with my processor?

    It died after I tried to clone the drive using Norton Ghost 10.0 .

    Gradually got worse until now it tries repeatedly to boot up BIOS but just bleeps and then tries again and again . all fans running , etc

    Not H/drive as have tried no drive and other drives and different SATA sockets.

    PC does not get as far as F8 so thats a no go.

    Just 2 bleeps and then it dies , occasionally the screen will flash the Packard Bell logo but only for a second.

    Havn't added memory or any other hardware.

    I was getting blue screen of death with some instruction problem in Outlook Express for some time before the PC finally died. This was probably the mother board getting sick and nothing to do with Outlook Express, it just so happened thats the program that I run all the time.

    So back to my original question(s) ( and thank you everyone who took the time to respond to my problem )

    Is a Pentium 4 a LGA775 socket ?

    and will any MB with LGA775 socket do.

    will I have to format HD? Or will my HD work with new MB?

You may not have to format
you should be okay
are you sure power supply is not going
remove cd drive and boot see if you can get to safemode
Are you sure you have'nt had pc opened and maybe loosened a memory
I still don't think it's the motherboard.I would go more for a memory or power supply problem
let me know

I had a problem similar to this with my old Gigabyte motherboard. What happened, was that somehow, the motherboard's hard drive mounting points were corrupting.
I was able to solve this issue by changing where the hard drives were plugged into the motherboard. It's merely a bandaid solution and may not solve the problem permanently, as I had the problem occur about 3 times.

I would suggest removing one drive (hard drive, CD drive, etc.) at a time to see if it will boot the BIOS when the drive is unplugged. If this does not work, I would think that the motherboard may be dead.

I think you can try all LGA775 MB.
BTW, it worked before? or you changed anything?
Maybe you can try other memories.

How to boot from cd in ga 6wmmc7

When you turn on the computer and BIOS just begins to load, the computer will display something like..." Press (some key) to enter Setup". This key is usually "DEL", "F12", or something like that. This would bring you to the BIOS Setup Menu. Explore the options there, there's an option for boot device order. Make sure that CD comes before HDD. Of course, your CD must be bootable in order for it to actually boot.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops

Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike
