Re: no power up

Re- assemble the processor unit and try. then check your ram is installed correctly and firmly. Try it out with different ram modules. If it work on other modules, Then you have a bad ram.

My Gigabyte GA 945GM S2 Mother Board Staring & Turning Off After Few Seconds. At start time CPU Fan starts with a blinking. Whats the Problem?

Hello here is the gigabyte homepage:

Try to download the manual.

The fault could be the power supply, try to renew that.

Try also to renew the thermal paste, between the cooling element and the cpu, and make sure the fan and the cooling element is clean for dust.

The fault could also be a defect ram module.

Any beep codes ???
Or blue screen ???

Good luck

My gigabyte GA-G31m-s2L motherboard has while i am switchon the board CPU fan working but no other response happen in my monitor please give me troubleshooting method so as to avoid to buy new...

First thing when diagnosing a desktop computer problem, is check the Power Supply.


A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can also emulate software problems.

(Emulate software problems; The bad hardware (Power Supply), can also make it seem like it is a software problem. It isn't. It's a hardware problem -> Power Supply )

1) Is your computer dirty inside? This will make the computer not work, and also 'kills' Power Supply's.
They overheat, and components inside the Power Supply fail.
(Go bad)

Know this;

1) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L?

LGA 775 processor socket, and an Intel G31 motherboard chipset,

Scroll down to G31 in the left column.
Also go back to the Gigabyte Support page.
Click on the Support & Downloads tab.
(Overview / Specification / Support & Downloads / FAQ / etc)

Click on the blue - CPU Support List tab.
(CPU Support List / Memory Support List / Accessory )

Your motherboard can support Processors that use 35 Watts all the way up to 135 Watts.

If you have a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail; you may see LED lights light, and fans spin; but there will NOT be enough power to turn the Processor ON.

Do you have a multimeter to test the 3 main voltages?
Do you have a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply; to use for a temporary test unit?

When working on your computer FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
If you are not aware of what Anti-Static Precautions are, please post back in a Comment.
DO NOT work on your computer until you do.

Remove all Ram Memory modules. ('Stick')
Clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser.

If using an eraser on the end of a pencil; and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil; touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub across all gold plated contact pins, and up, and down. BOTH sides.
When finished use air to remove the eraser dust.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Handle the Ram Memory module by the BODY.
The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic,

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s. Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My cpu fan is not working in my Gigabyte GA-8ST667 system can anyone tell me why am sure the cpu fan is good

Hello elscomputers: If you are sure that there is no other issue with the motherboard -- It was working before the CPU Fan/Heatsink stopped working. Other than making sure that it is correctly connected as shown below -- attached to Pin 1 with all three pins connected (not off to the side by one pin), you can assume it's bad (they do wear out). The cost of a new cooler is pretty minimal and I would just replace it.


Good Luck and Thanks for inquiring at Fix Ya.

Actually my system is having the problem like motherboard LED is not glowing, powersupply fan processor fan not spinning sometimes it works properly by putting supply ON. All power supplies are normal from...

I would still say it is power supply! Check with power supply from another computer.

You have intermittent power supply to the fan, you have no power supply to the motherboard, processor fan is not spinning , not is indicator diod on the board, first instance and easiest to check is always power supply.

If power supply is not a reason, check on motherboard high volume capacitors, especially around processor, capacitors should have flat tops, if tops are buckled, that meant capacitor/s is/are gone and motherboard can be used as a decoration, if you do not have special soldering iron to replace surface mount circuitry, do not bother even to think to replace them.

Power loss after 2 seconds from booting up.

Best solution I can think of is Step by Step

Remove those items again and Step by Step, 1 by 1 install each item.

If each item installs ok one by one, then leave in one item at a time. Slow process yes, but you might find which item is causing the conflict.

If you install smething an the machine fails Remove it and the Item before it, then install the Item that failed and try it again.

If it fails then it could be the item not the PSU.

If it fails because of all the items... Then you may need to upgrade your PSU

I was using my asrock G31M-S destop when it went off. now when i turn on the system , the motherboard fan,and power supply fan spins for a few seconds and then stops. what do i do?

The power supply might be bad, or you might be drawing too much current due to a short elsewhere. If you can get your hands on a compatible power supply, I'd try that first. You can unhook plugs to try to pinpoint a short (in a CD, DVD player, etc. Get an estimate on an estimate from a computer shop, in case all else fails.

Mother board no display

Looks like the lights are on? Fans spin? Sounds like the harddrives spinning? The power supply is bad. has just enough power to light lights, and spin fans, but not enough for the processor. (No beep sounds, because BIOS hasn't done a memory count. It's not going to)

ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
The harddrive just sitting there spinning, uses about 5 watts.

Processors use 55 Watts to 125 Watts. Depends on the processor.
Not enough power to turn the processor on, the computer won't work. Computer isn't working there isn't anything to turn the monitor on. No Signal.
