Gigabyte GA-7vtxe+ Motherboard cannot boot up

I have a computer with the above motherboard.  the computer will not boot up.  The fan on the CPU spins for about a second then nothing.  There is a little light on the motherboard near the main power connector that lights up after the fan quits spinning or so.
I've already tried the video card, RAM, hard drive, etc.  Nothing.  The power supply is good as I've tried another with the same results.  Any Ideas?
I've read about capacitor problems.  the unit was built in 2001.

My cpu fan is not working in my Gigabyte GA-8ST667 system can anyone tell me why am sure the cpu fan is good

Hello elscomputers: If you are sure that there is no other issue with the motherboard -- It was working before the CPU Fan/Heatsink stopped working. Other than making sure that it is correctly connected as shown below -- attached to Pin 1 with all three pins connected (not off to the side by one pin), you can assume it's bad (they do wear out). The cost of a new cooler is pretty minimal and I would just replace it.


Good Luck and Thanks for inquiring at Fix Ya.

I have a problem with my board Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L, encounter no display & no beeps even though I remove the RAM in the board please help me to solve this problem?

Do the fans still start spinning ? And did you do a CMOS clear ?
You should also try booting it without a graphics card and/or any other audio/network card, etc, so you only have the CPU and motherboard (and also try it with 1 RAM bank and without). When it beeps, it's probably alright (implicating other failing hardware).

When you hear no beeps at all (but the fans spin), it's pretty likely that the board is gone. You might want to doublecheck the powersupply and CPU nevertheless.

No display by gigabyte GA8i915me motherboard

It sounds like your CPU might be overgeating. Check the CPU heatsink fan to see if it is spinning. Also, make sure that you clean out any dust, as this can lead to overheating also.

GA-7VRX Motherboard won't boot

Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike
