As you said the system is restarting because of power section problem.
Try to change SMPS and see the difference. Even though if it fail.
Try using single ram if problem repeat change with other ram.
Load bios defaults.

If Not Ok

Contact Intel Support:

With your bill No, Serial No & model no.

or you can mail to:

Hope this will work...

Intel 946 mother board

You need at least 1GB of Ram Memory, and should have 2GB.
[512MB + 512MB = 1024MB or also stated as 1GB ]

The - Intel 946 - designator you have listed refers to the motherboard chipset.
It is either an Intel 946PL, or Intel 946GZ motherboard chipset,

You can see the list of processors it supports. Also look at the Front Side Bus speed it supports (FSB), and note 65nm architecture for the processor.

As for office work, or surfing the internet; more Ram Memory will help.
For editing videos, or intense games though, you need a decent graphics card.

How to check my gigabyte mother board under warranty?


i read from your information and picture about your motherboard type..i think yours is not under warranty from factory anymore (GIGABYTE)

for additional information your mainboard (MB) is using old type of intel chip set (Intel 865 series) and only support intel processor type Pentium 4 with 478 pin with 533 MHz bus processor..

talking about warranty from factory GIGABYTE only give 3 years warranty only for MB with minimum chipset intel ICH 7 and up..that's mean MB must be support processor minimum 775 pin and 1155 pin or support intel Pentium D,Dual Core,Core2Duo or Core i series...

hope this is can help to solve your problem..

Like to upgrade I have DG 965 RY LGA 775 Socket

Hi, your motherboard supports several different kinds of processors. You have a choice of two for the fastest performance. You could go with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor #E6700 that runs at 2.66 Ghz with a front side bus of 1066 Mhz and 4 Mb L2 cache, or you could go with an Intel Single Core Processor #670 that runs at 3.80 Ghz with an 800 Mhz front side bus and 2Mb L2 cache. The Core 2 would outperform the Single Core, but it is more expensive. Hope this helps! Hal

1333 FSB processor ( E6850 ) on a 1066 FSB motherboard, DDR2 667 memory

Hi proenza. you're making good sence! You're D945GCL MB should be able to run 1066 FSB. Not 100% sure you're memory will keep FSB up to 1066.
Here's the trouble though. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 will not run on the Intel D945GCL motherboard because it is not supported. Look here at Intel's web site. Supported CPU's.

Intel E6850 specs sheet.

Intel E6700 spec sheet.

This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor BX80557E4700 - 2.60GHz.

In order to get 1066MHz (CPU can run at), you'll also need the memory support at 800MHz. The D945GCL MB can only run DDR2-667MHz.
Many people buy a CPU to run MB's specs (1333MHz) just to find the same MB does not support DDR2-1066MHz or DDR2-800MHz. Motherboard Mfg's are lagging. DDR3-1333MHz is out there now to support the 1333 MHz CPU FSB.

I hope this has helped you make a decision proenza.

Good Luck!

A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.

Good luck.
