Hello, I´m trying to repair P4M-915G/PD1. I could enter the BIOS once when I had no operating system anymore (virusses?).I didn´t change any settings in BIOS setup though. Then I rebooted and since then I have nothing on screen anymore. Fans are turning, that´s all. I did a CMOS reset by switching the jumper and removing the battery. No difference. The system won´t load anything at all. Nothing on screen. I checked the screen which is ok. I changed the video card. Nothing.

Re: P4M-915G/PD1 no screen, no BIOS, only power.
Do you hear any beeps at all? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? If not, plug a 2-pin system speakers onto the motherboard where it says "speaker" and listen for some beeps.
You may have a fried CPU or dodgy RAM on your hands. Possibly even a faulty AGP/PCI-E slot, to name a few.

Intel's link will not load the bios link. You're board is still an Intel & should be compatible with any Intel board with the 915 series chipset but it is not. After running a comparison with other boards as shown below. You're board was made for FIC. As a member of Driverguid I found nothing & also check every user who suggested a site for you as well. Nothing! Tried softpedia, nothing.
Not enough to support you're board.
Sorry, but it may be a good idea to find a board that will handel you're parts.
Experience a similar problem with a FIC MB. I cleared CMOS then removed MB battery for 1 hour. Restarted the unit with just the video card and hard drive installed. After unit rebooted I added sound card, network card, etc.
You should always try a new power supply if possible. After all, it is one of the most likely components to fail - it's got moving parts (one or more fans), just like your hard drive (spinning platters), one of the other most likely parts to die.
That said, in this instance it probably is the mobo. FIC made great motherboards, but they got out of the business so you won't find the same one anywhere. If you have to replace it, you may be able to get out of a Windows reinstall by getting a motherboard with the same chipset, which looks like a 915/G, though any 915 based board might do. You may still need to do a repair install, but in many cases the same chipset allows you to boot and then just load all the new different drivers for the new board.
If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured.
Did you hear 2 beeps(not together)
Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings'
and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'.
Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is.
Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.
