P4i65G - brand new want start.

Bought new ASRock P4i65G mobo. Using Tested CPU Intel p4 3.4 GHz, 2x512 MB RAM, tested, matched. PSU 500W atx class. The first try - mobo with cpu and ram conected just monitor and kb - not in case, as I always try first before assembling box. No power connected yet,
1. Remove cmos battery, discharge cmosram. Battery back. Power cord in, and ... would not start.
2. Try again, again ... started with cmos error ... great! Changed bios settings to deafault, set time/date. Power off. 
3. Power UP, start ... nothing,  start again ..nothing several times

Repeat step 1 than step 3. Nothing. Got upset, returned mobo to shop. Got replacement - brand new in box.
Mobo not in the case.
4. Cpu/memory as above. Start - it did come up with bios - great.
5. Set time date ...look at other options ....
6. Power down.
7.Connected DVD drive - power up ... start .. bios come on asking for disk.
8. Used Live Linux CD - it has Gentoo, PCLinux and memory test program
9. Reboot ... OK ... selected ram test ... running for few hours ... perfect.

QUESTION - Memory FSB 800 but during test runs 400 is normal ???

10. Power down. Now I am sure is OK to put mobo in to case.
11. Just to test again ... power up, start .... nothing ..... crazy mobo or ???

And it never stated again ... send e_mail to ASRock ... answer "take to dealer for inspection" I thought it is a joke .. (mobo looks OK but has no QA stamps .... funny, I am electronics eng. with >20 years experience).
 I can see one solution take to dealer with e_mail from ASRock, and get money back ... AND NEVER EVER even look at ASRock.

ANY other help, solution(s) appreciated .......

Re: P4i65G - brand new want start.

Try getting a slower cpu, I have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 512mb of ram and it works great, I emailed them about upgrading ram and they said: "Upgrading the memory would not affect the Video card, unless the memory is not compatible with the motherboard, then the computer might not turn on at all."

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...

Hi, you can download a manual here:

This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

I would like advice on upgrading my Graphics card

Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.

Connecting my PSU to my Motherboard

The bare essentials to start a computer are PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Video.

Its possible the PSU arrived DOA. Though I've only had 2 DOA PSU's in the 15 years I've been building custom computers.

Hope this helps.

PC wont boot, not even to bios

Maybe the mobo is shot for u and he has his PSU shot.......Check for any burnt smells from the mobo. See if the cable from the PSU is properly connected to the mobo. Try removing all drives like graphics cards, RAMS one by one and see if it works.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

To answer you're question. (Yes it will fit). Both boards are Micro ATX.
