Question about EliteGroup 945GZT-M (V1.0) Motherboard

2 Answers

POST issues Hey all,I recently purchased an EliteGroup 945GZT-M motherboard with a Celeron 420 processor from Microcenter. I'd put everything together (all the drives, fans, etc.) but when I went to power up, nothing happened. No fans, no lights, no beeps, nothing.Assuming it was the power supply (a cheap-o Microcenter brand 300 Watt ATX), I returned it to the store, where they gave me another one. This didn't help either, so I returned it for a 550 Watt PSU. Initially, this was no help, but after following the tips on the Microcenter website telling me to build it outside the case with only the essentials plugged in, the fans spun, and a red light lit up in the case faceplate. I assume the red was because I hadn't plugged in the system fan, or something to that degree.Elated, I re-installed the motherboard within the case where it again worked as promised. I moved the case over to my monitor and keyboard, but found that it wouldn't turn on for me again. I really have no idea what to do here, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same prob, but found if you do not fit all 6 screws there is no power. So try fitting all 6 screws.

Hello please take the motherboard back to place of purchase. This sounds like a bad board. I have had about 13 of the same board customers would call me on. there is a hairline crack somewhere on the board.

Upgrading power supply

No, it wont hurt your processor. Actually it will probably be better for your processor. The more power you have, the better off you are.

Will not post


Unplug and remove everything from your motherboard, memory, PCI card, Hard disk, CD, etc…

Only leave the processor, its fan and the power supply connectors. Power up and listen for some beep. If you don?t hear any beep there is an issue with the processor or the motherboard. If you hear any beep start installing the memory and try again adding one more component until you discover which one is causing the issue.

Check that cooler on CPU is turn on (to connector on mobo). If it not connected - CPU will overheated and system shut down.
