Question about Gigabyte GA-8SG800 Motherboard
I have an old pc here that has died i can't determine if its the processor or the motherboard (or even the ram) i'm not getting any beeps or indication from the board so i'm assuming theres an issue with the board however the ram could also be causing an issue unfortunately i don't have any spare ddr memory lying about is there any other ways i can determine the cause? the screen went black and the pc never posted again after a reset
The best way to test which component is causing the issue is to strip down you mobo to just the CPU. Then try and boot. If it boots, you know the CPU is okay. Start adding components until you reach the point where it won't boot. The last item added will be the item that is not functioning. If it won't boot with just the CPU, and all of your jumpers are correct, then your mobo is your problem.

Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.
If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.
Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.
