Question about Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 AMD Phenom Socket AM2+ 3000 MHz Motherboard Retail

1 Answer

Motherboard GA-MA790FX-DQ6 no monitor

Hi,

Please help.

I have purchased the above motherboard and have encountered a few issues.

I currently have the Phenom 9500 quad core processor, the Zotac 9800GT Graphics card, 1TB of harddrive and 8gb RAM 4x2gb.

The only generic output on the motherboard is the serial output (motherboard has the female output), when I turn on the PC there is no input to the monitor (which works with 2 other PC's I have connecting in the same way) there is no beep from the speakers to state that there is a problem and there has never been any sound at all.

I have tried another CMOS battery which didn't help, the rear USB slots do not work or give power to mouse or keyboard although the green and purple inputs will. I have tried a working and compatible AMD dual core processor as I have read that the motherboard only comes with F1 Bios and F5 is necassary without luck, I have tried connecting via the graphics card via HDMI without luck, I have tried without the graphics card using the standard nvidia on motherboard. There is power as all my fans work fine, the blu ray dvd drive turns on etc

Please help

Do I plug in BOTH the 20+4 ATX power connector AND the 8 pin 12V connector on a gigbyte MB (MA790GPT-UD3h)?


Hi

You only need to plug the 20+4 ATX power connector and how about the 8 pin 12V connector? Well that is use only for legacy type of motherboard that use to require it.

Hope it helps..

Thanks for reaching Fixya

GA-MA790FX-DQ6 Mobo not POSTing Should i reset the bios??


no beeps, indicates you have faulty CPU or mainboard.
  • remove all components even RAM and CPU.
  • insert only CPU and Speaker (without RAM or any other componet).
  • Boot and try to hear, there must be long beep for missing RAM, if not then try to re-insert the CPU or change the CPU/Mainboard.

Thanks and Good Luck

Motherboard is not booting!!!!!


Hi Jay,
Is you're memory installed in the two yellow slots?
Try using only 1 DIMM in DDRII_1 slot.
Page 17 in you're manual. When using only one PCI-E graphics cards you do not need to plug in extra power to the board, as shown on page 19. (Only need this additional 4-pin Molex when running two PCI-E cards).
Check internal connector is plugged in item,
1 ATX_12V_2X (Pg. 23 in you're manual).
(System will not boot without this).
Also item, 2 main power 24-pin Molex cable is securely connected. Chassis Intrusion Header (By default is opened/no jumper). I don't like the CPU getting hot. It shouldn't. Do you have a spare heat sink & fan for you're CPU? Are you 100% the cooling system is running correctly?
Lastly, here is Gigabyte's Qualified Vendors List (QVL), for you're board. Corsair 2GB is not listed.

Case fan runs on standby


Hi neezels, go to page 53 in you're manual. Scroll to the bottom of the page to ( System Smart FAN Control). This is you're case fan. This is why you're system fan is running while in standby.

By enabled you're case fan will still run but adjust it's speed acording to the motherboard temp. Even though you're system may be in standby you're case fan will continue to fun to maintain temp. (Pretty smart noard)!

Troubleshooting


How long have you had the system in that configuration? It doesn't seem to be a heat issue running around 45 degrees unless that is the idle temp. I need you to try something, when it shuts down, immediately restart the system in bios and look at the temp for the processor again. I solved my issue by taking a side off of my case and putting a small desk fan blowing directly into it. My idle temp went from 45 down to 27 degrees celcius. In a perfect world, the cooler a CPU runs, the better the system will respond. Find those temps readings for me, and let me know. Also, there may be a small monotoring program in your mobo set up disc to help monitor the temp while windows is running. And also, double check to make sure your processor fan is plugged into the correct spot on the mobo, mine is mislabeled, another issue I had found and corrected.

Trobleshooting


I had the same issue with my AMD Athlon 3800+ dual core. I found that I wasn't getting enough airflow to keep the system and processor cool. You may want to check the heatsink and fan rating for your processor unless it was sold in a bundle. Also, On AMD's of such power, they tend to run hot if overclocked. Look into, if you haven't already 2 case fans to go along with the processor fans. I recommend a 90mm in front and a 80mm in the rear of the case. If this doesn't help, let me know.
