PC not booting up

I have a Intel Quad Core 2.4 GHz processor on this board, with a Radeon HD2900XT Graphics Card and 1GB 800MHz Kingsmax Ram. When I power the machine up everything seems to be booting up, and all fans running, but no display on screen. The Power Supply used is 500W. I have tried to connect up the 8 pin ATX 12V Power connector to the CPU, with a 4 pin power plug as indicated in manual, but then the PC does not start up at all. Only LED's on for a split second and then Auto Off.

What could be the problem? I have already changed the graphics card with at Nvidia 8500GT, but still the same effect. I have 2 off exactly the same PC's build up, and both giving the same problem.

Re: PC not booting up

Yes this motherboard accepts the quad core i use it, but the power supply is underrated for the quad core you will need somethng a bit more meatier I would suggest at least 700-800

I have a 512 DDR2 (533 FSB) RAM in one of my slot in Intel D102GGC2 Mother board,can i put a 2 GB DDR2 ram in another slot.If yes then What FSB will match and what is the maximum capacity of ram per slot?

This motherboard will support maximum 2 GB of total system memory. so configuration is should be 1GB + 1GB or one 2GB in one slot. If you attempt to install 2GB + 512MB, this is unsupported. but you can try if might the system can read it or not. there is no serious problem for installing memory exceed than maximum system memory...
Memory supported is DDR2 533 Mhz and DDR2 400 MHz...(sometimes on the market DDR2 533 will described as module name PC2-4200 and DDR2 400 as PC2 3200)

I have a laptop of compaq brand whose modle no is presario C700 in which intel celeron microprocessor is installed. 512 MB ram is installed i want to update it 4 improving its speed. i want to setup a...

I found the manual on the net that gives you instructions on replacing components if you're not sure how, it can be found here.

RAM upgrade
The Compaq Presario C700 uses DDR2 Laptop RAM as shown below.
slasher_x_11.jpg The motherboard of the Presario C700 has two RAM slots, one of them will be occupied by the 512MB RAM (running at 667MHz) module you have at present. This leaves one more that can accomodate a DDR2 667Mhz card of up to 1GB or you could get two 1GB DDR2 800MHz (the faster DDR2) cards and remove the 512 leaving you with a wopping 4GB of memory, that'll definately speed it up. Just remember the Presario C700 can only have up to 2GB of RAM so don't go higher than that or Windows will not boot for some reason.

Processor upgrade
The Presario C700 supports any Socket P, Core 2 Duo or Pentiun Dual Core chips. The fastest processor you can get is the Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB

For a full list of compatible processors go to page 9 of the user manual found here.

Need a prossesor for motherboard

You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

No display

Beep codes are usualy heard when there is a problem with either your display card or your RAM.

Your problem could possibly be a faulty CPU.
Does your CPU work in another board, or can you try another CPU in your board?

Reseing the bios shouldn't be a problem go ahead, or is there something I don't know? does it void the warranty? I don't think so.
