Question about Gigabyte GA-8IHXP Motherboard

1 Answer

GA-8IHXP won't boot... VER 3.0

HI
THIS IS NOT A NEW SYSTEM, IT'S BEEN UP AND RUNNING FOR YEARS WITH NO PROBLEMS. THE PC WAS RUNNNG AND THE SCREEN JUST WENT BLACK (NO SIGNAL). NOW AS I TRY TO BOOT, THERE IS NOTHING AT ALL ON THE SCREEN WITH THE SCREEN INDICATING NO SIGNAL.
THE ACTIONS I HAVE TAKEN TO REMEDY THIS PROBLEM ARE AS FOLLOWS
1. CHANGED POWER SUPPLY & TESTED THE OLD ONE WHICH IS OK.
2. CLEARED THE BOARED OF ALL CABLES & CARDS EXCEPT GRAFICS CARD, KEPT ALL DRIVES POWERED UP
3. CHANGED GRAFICS CARD - TESED OLD CARD WHICH IS OK TOO.
4. CLEARD CMOS & REMOVED BATERY

SUMMERY
THE POWER SWITCH IS GOOD AS PC IS TURNED ON, THE M/B LIGHT COMES ON BUT IT HANGS IN LIMBO WITH BLACK SCREEN (NO SIGNAL ) PC IS TURNED OFF ONLY BY HOLDING DOWN PWR SWITCH OR CUTTING OFF POWER VIA POWER SUPPLY ON/OFF SWITCH.
IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS, PLEASE SHARE THEM WITH ME.
THANKS GUYS
TONY

    HI

    THE ADVISE YOU GAVE IS SOUND, UNFORTUNETLY I FAILED TO MENTION IN MY COMMENT THAT ALL CAPACITORS LOOK GOOD. THE (BUBBLING EFFECT) WHICH WOULD APPEAR ON THE TOP SIDE OF A BLOWEN CAPACITOR DOES'NT APPEAR ON ANY OF MINE. JUST TO BE SURE I WENT AT IT WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS. ALSO I HAVE NO WAY OF TESTING THE RDRRAM SO I REPLACED THEM WITH THE RIMMS, 1 PAIR AT A TIME AND THEN BOTH PARES, NO CHANGE, THE PROBLEM IS THE SAME.. I'M NOW GOING TO RESEAT THE CPU, JUST ONE MINUTE AND I'LL TELL YOU THE RESULTS OF THAT TOO. NOPE, HAD NO AFFECT. PC IS STILL AS BEFORE. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO RESPOND. I AWAIT YOUR COMMENT / ADVICE.

    SORRY. YOU ARE CORRECT, MY MISTAKE THEN. IT JUST DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM.

    DO YOU THINK THE M/B GONE TO HEAVEN. AS THIS M/B IS VERY HARD TO FIND NOW A DAYS, I FOUND ONE ON EBAY VER 2.1 AS MINE IS VER 3.0. I KNOW THERE'S A SOUND DRIVER DIFFERENCE BUT THE RDRRAM SHOULD BE INTERCHANGEABLE RIGHT??

    THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND ADVICE. I'LL CONCIDER MY OPTIONS.

    HAVE A GOOD ONE.

The next thing I would check is a close inspection of all the bad capacitors on the board. If you need an idea of what they look like check here.

    The next thing I would do is fix the rating you assigned. You said in your comment the advice was sound, but you left out information in your post. You will see the CHANGE RATING link on this page, most likely just under my answer. If you review the ratings FAQ you will see my answer should have been rated helpful since it was sound advice but did not fix your problem.

    I do suspect the motherboard is dead. Yes, the RIMMs will still work in the older version of the board.

    Also keep in mind that sometimes the capacitors will blow out on the bottom. But it would be pretty unlikely that you would not notice any of them bubbled on the top if bad caps were the problem. Might be worth another look if the board is that important to you. I would just replace the whole thing.

GA-EP43 -UD3L motherboard will not boot with 16 GB of memory


Time to RMA, sounds like you have a faulty memory channel on the MB. Possibility the slots are not getting enough power to handle all 4, you try to see if you can increase power in bios.

Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.


When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

I have had a variety of problems since 2007 a few months after I puchased this gateway laptop from HSN. Big mistake. Customer service for Gateway is terrible! The battery will not charge, screen fails...


Let's think about this. The computer is 3 years old, probably running Vista. It needs a new battery, not surprising on a 3 year old system. The screen doesn't work for some reason.
A battery & screen will run you $150-200. It may still have a problem.
A new computer with Win7 is $400-500.
I know what I would do.

move the sata connection for your bootable HDD to another port like 3 or 4 and the bios will detect then run bios setup to boot from the sata 3 or 4 and it works like normal, must be a bug in sata 1 and 2. had same issue trying to install win7 x64. Win 7 refuses to detect sata DVD drive, moved it on the MB and it installed fine.

Its a resistor. The colored bands show exactly what the specs are.
