Ok David

I have the same problem with my mobo but it doesen't give any beep codes.
The first thing that you can do is to check that you have properly and firmly connected the power cable to the mobo.Secondly check if you connected the additional plus12 volts 4 pin cable into the mobo.After that turn on and check if the cpu fan is spiniing and as well other external cpu fans are spinning that way you'll now it's not the PSU(simply becouse is giving power to the cpu
Second step if that doesen't help try to remove all the devices exept for the memory you put only one memory stick into difrent mem slot,also good idea is to try and reseat the cpu take it carefully out and insertit back into the socket
also make sure that you firmly atached your monitor cable and grafic card firmly into the slot
Try it .If that doesen't help check this page

Hi im josh in cebu phils.Did you add any new hardware? Remove any unessecisary external devices, such as external hard drives, Printers, USB Memory Sticks, Joyticks, or similar items. Your beep may be what is called a beep code, in which beep codes indicate problems with certain hardware, such as the motherboard, RAM etc..or ]

If you are getting a beep or a series of beeps I would check the beep code listing. Beep codes vary by BIOS provider. The following website lists beep codes for several BIOS providers. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

You've removed the drive and it booted normally. Have you reinserted the drive. Make sure the power and IDE/SATA cables are securely attached to both the motherboard and the drive. If the PC won't both with the drive installed, I would try another hard drive if you have one or can borrow one. If it boots with a different hard drive installed, then I'd say we've identified your problem as a faulty hard drive good luck hope i helped you.

Hey,

Start by unplugging components from the motherbard, start by disconnecting all extra ram, leave only one module, disconnect any extra devices connected. just have the minimum, motherboard, memory, video, powersupply. Connected try starting up.

Do you hear any beeps at any point? have you tried another video card?

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. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org 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

Gigabyte motherboard GA-8KNxp will not power up


If you have just installed a new mother board, refer to your manual and double check your connections for pwr switch. If this is a machine you've had for a while and it just stopped powering up then your power supply is probably broken.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

Gigabyte GA-8KNXP not going to POST


You can find leaky caps...
Anyways, those boards have very small inductors that look like caps and are used as pico fuses on most all peripherals and controller chips. Check that they are not blown and replace them with something from DIGIKEY or MOUSER
Also starting with the most simple, check that the power supply itself has not gone into SHOCK. unplug it from mains and TOGGLE the voltage selector switch, MAKE SURE it is back to 110 or whatever you need. 
I know it sounds weird but I have resurrected MANY PC's that way.
Other then that it sounds like you are well on your way to finding the defective component on your own. just thought I would throw in the fiew things that have caught me off guard in the past.
