Question about Intel D945GTP Motherboard

1 Answer

I have not been able to get my desktop to boot since yesterday. The light on the monitor is yellow and nothing is happening with the cpu. If I unplug it, hold the power button in for a minute or so and let it set for an hour or two, when I retry, I can get the Gateway welcome screen but then that goes black and nothing else happens. The monitor light stays green.

    Thanks for the information. I did clean the system yesterday and had to remove two memory modules. I reseated them, but will try that again. I think the power supply is ok, but that's just because it hasn't made any noise or such. If this doesn't work, I will take it to a repair shop. I've got to get this project finished, or my client will kill me.]

    Thanks again

    It looks like I'll take it into a pro to fix it. Nothing has changed and nothing has helped.

Have you ever taken a computer apart? I would suggest to reseat your memory modules and try them one by one on each memory slot and see if it improves.

If not the issue is most likely the powersupply since you said that if you let it sit for a hour or two it might turn on, that sounds very much like the faulty powersupplies that I've had myself.

if it doesn't solve the problem then it could be the motherboard thats faulty. - but if you are able to turn on the computer and get the gateway screen up over and over again then the computer is working and the issue may be your hard drive, or your windows installation is corrupt, might need to be reinstalled or the bios settings for booting / starting up might be set wrong, that may happen if the bios resets itself to defaults.

Overall its a fairly complex issue and I would recommend taking the computer to a local professional who can troubleshoot the issue.

No signal displayed

hi,check the CPU of your computer if it is booting can try to push the caps lock of the key board pressing the keyboard once the LED light indicator lights up then press again the light will turn off .This means that the CPU boots up and functioning properly.Check the data cable connecting the CPU and the monitor there must be a broken line there you can replace the cable or you can re insert the cable a loose connection can cause the problem.IF all are good and still same problem try to re insert the video card from the main board make sure to turn of the power before removing the video card...try this solution and post back if nothing happens after doing these solutions..good luck!

Imed 1402 wont boot up

Your computer is not completely booting (it's failing the POST).
You need to identify the problem by disconnecting everything but the CPU, video, and memory. See if you get something displayed on the screen. If not, there is a good chance the problem is in the video card. Just to be sure, if you have 2 sticks of memory, take one out and try a boot. Then swap sticks.
The monitor is blinking yellow because it's not getting a video signal.

Intel D815EEA2 mobo won't boot - no clue to why not.

I know, this is a very frustrating situation...
Unfortunately, the only reasonable way to find out what's wrong is to swap components with a reference system, until you found the defective part. I hope you have another P3 system available to swap parts.

I would do it this way:
  • First check that the power button is connected correctly.
  • Swap the memory from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If ok, put it back into the faulty system and connect the power supply from the reference system (or some other known good one) to the faulty system.
  • If this doensn't help, swap the CPU from the faulty system to the reference system.
  • If the CPU is ok, the motherboard seems to be defective.

Cpu can not boot

I don't think it is a ram issue.Try this when the computer is booting,hit the F8 key. That boots you into safe mode where only the most necessary drivers and programs load. If it loads in safe mode that is good. A little bit of daignostic work can locate the problem after that.
