Question about Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 (890552602964) Motherboard

1 Answer

Not booting up.

Hi, I have an A64 3000 venice cpu, 1 gb corsair ram, 6600 gt video card and my power supply blew which was an Apevia AS500W. I bought a new one and replaced it. My computer turns on and everything powers up but the GA-K8NF-9 Mobo does not beep like usual and nothing happens, also keyboard, mouse, cd rom etc does not turn on. Is that a bad motherboard problem?

    No I cannot get into anything. Nothing comes up at all.

  • thumper61713 Nov 02, 2007

    Ok...yes all of the cords are on correctly. The power supply is not exactly the same power supply as the one before it...would that matter? It is the same Wattage and it is powering everything up fine. Its just not booting though. ok...well thanks for your help.

I have bfg 9800gt it wont boot .. just puts monitor to sleep ... am2 biostar mother 450 watt power supply 3gb ram triple 3.0 amd cpu

ive had a similar problem before. in the BIOS there somewhere, there is an option to make your computer use the ON BOARD VGA, or to use the PCXI. which ever one is selected is the one that the computer will use. if you can change this option in the BIOS, you might be able to use your video card.

No Display on boot up

When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU. Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board? Is your power Supply Good? Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in? Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination. Can you try a different power supply first? Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it. If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU. Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares. Good luck

Hi i just bought an asus m4a88td-m i instaled it with a amd phenom II x4, 500 watts corsair power supply, ati radeon hd 5700 1gb ddr 5 , 6gb ram ddr3 1033mhz and im unable to boot my windows 7 64bits , it...

With all that power, you need a better PSU, the CPU alone draws out 125 watts, the video card can get upwards of 50, RAM takes it down another 25, and that's half of it right there. I would suggest AT MINIMUM a 700 watt PSU. Newegg has em for you (you sound like you can find what you're looking for after all those specs you've given).
I hope this helps!

My computer shuts down when i play or when i exit 3d games

Hi, has the problem recently started after the installation of sp3 because it has been known to cause problems like your having. If the computer is a new build it could be one of two problem, the asrock motherboard which i personally wont use anymore because of constant failure, or your power supply is not powerful enough. i would recommend nothing less than 500w power supply for gaming pc`s.

Hope this helps,

Motherboard problem

Hi Fabio,

Nice system you have.

I would change the timings on your RAM in bios setup pages to a slower set of numbers, especially the last one in the timing from say 12 to 15. If that doesn't help, your cool RAM chips may be slightly defective if you purchased these as a Matched Set from Corsair. And were these RAM Chips in the approved list from Asus for your system board?

Corsair has lifetime warranty for their RAM so getting those replaced shouldn't be a problem.

What you want to do is download and burn a Bart PE bootup CD that has Mem Test 86 on it and run that test on your RAM to verify that the RAM may be defective. Corsair will want to know if you have run a RAM test on those chips.

So, try the slower timing settings, even though you are not overclocking them to start with.

Also, can you put each video card on a separate power rail instead of populating one power rail with both video cards?

Lastly, you stated that you can power off, leave the system off for a half hour and the system will boot. This, as you may know, indicates something is getting hot.This could be your Power Supply or your CPU. Have you used canned air to blow out the power supply and CPU fan and heat sink?
