Question about Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot-Problem After several years of work the PC makes some noise that i thought the HDD was defect. I did not regard this so after a while the PC decided not to boot any longer. I changed the Memory and the PC bootet until the the monitor freezed with the message : press F1 to go on or ? to enter bios. Pressing F1 does not work and so did bios. After this event the monitor showed no further signs. So i changed the battery of the board - without any effect. I payed over 200 Euro for this board - and i am not willing to give up hope that one can help me with this problem. So if you have the solution tell me and be shure i am gratefull.

    Thank you for your hint!. Yesterday i tried another mainboard (FSC D1875) an the drives worked well. The only sign that there could be a problem with the HDD`s was a double beep when i started first. A the second start the PC booted without trouble. So i believe there must be a problem with the Gigabyte-Board whatever it is.

    If anyone knows what else it could be .... please tell me!

Laptop can not boot,noisy hdd

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

It is obvious that the hdd of your laptop is defective. The HDD has some bad sectors which is most likely beyond repairs.

You need to replace the HDD of your laptop because the noise you are hearing is an indication that the HDD is defective.

I hope the above information is clear. If not clear, please let me know.

My desktop has a 6 year-old motherboard which will not start up if the external USB HDD is turned on. So I have to make sure the HDD is off before turning on the PC in the morning. After it starts booting I can turn on the HDD and everything works fine.

Does your machine work this way?

Error message Non system disk error replace and strike any key wh

Hi !

This error means either there is no disk (or disconnected/wrong connected) or your HDD is gone (which I don't believe) !

I can't find a reason why you pulled out your HDD when it was (I assume) working good before ?!?

Anyway, . . .now, please check carefully the connectors - both sides, to the HDD and to the Board(if any), if they are properly fit!
It is an IDE disk and there are two groups pins on the HDD. Check the pins if they are all going to plastic male connector (and then to the board.
A group of 4 or 6 pins on HDD should not be connected. There is one pin missing in (about) middle of the second row of pins - it is o.k.

Put your ear close on the chasis of laptop and find if there is a spinning noise when you turn your laptop on.

If there you can hear noise, then check in BIOS if your HDD exists.

If not, try to check it on another Laptop/PC.

Unable to boot os after power supply change

I would make sure you connected the Power to the main switch correctly it is usually a 3 wire connect, check all connections on the HDD, motherboard, and CD's. also check the WATs rating on your old power supply against the WATs on the new power supply, if the new one is less that is probably your issue.

PLZkeep me posted.
