Question about Intel D865GBF Motherboard

2 Answers

Motherboard reboots to nothing.


I have 2 systems at home with the same D865GBF motherboard. I was troubleshooting one of them with a single monitor. I took out the graphics cable from one CPU and plugged it into the other one (while both systems and the monitor were were switched on). I did this for a couple of times no problem, but then later on while I plugged it onto my main system, everything switched off and restarted to nothing (fans keep running, HDD has power, etc but nothing on my monitor). I also noticed a faint burning smell coming from the CPU.

I'm using 512MB DDR RAM, a 40 GB HDD, 2 DVD roms. I also have an external graphics card which I used in that motherboard and tried to boot it up. No luck. I even reset the boot settings.

I'm not a n00b and I know I screwed up. Any suggestions?

Re: Motherboard reboots to nothing.

Monitor is working with my other system, no problems with the cables.

I think something wrong with the motherboard (faint burning smell) because I was trying to plug a live monitor into a live CPU? The resulting short or spark or something might have screwed up my motherboard. Is this a software issue?

I just wanted to know if I might have blown up the onboard graphical component because of me putting in the graphics cable into a CPU while it was running.

Re: Motherboard reboots to nothing.

If the monitor is not working on both systems you could possibly have blown the monitor. Its unlikely that youv'e blow the two graphics cards. could you get a loan of another monitor and check to see if it works on the systems.

Hello here are the homepage:

But here is no drivers for win 7.

Try to use windows update, for drivers missing.

If you are looking for the driver for the sound, buy a sound card to install on the mainboard.
Just make sure the driver is available, for the windows system.

Good luck

Intel has no plans to develop a Windows 7 driver for your older, discontinued motherboard.

I have an Intel D865GBF motherboard in my PC, which stopped working. I replaced the power supply because there was no power to the board. Now I have power, but when I hit the power button nothing happens.

The exact same thing happened to my D815EAA2. In my case an overheating power supply destroyed the board. Do the following:

1. Check the power supply you replaced it with works on another system.
2. If it still doesn't work with your board, the board will need to be replaced.

Asrock P4V8+ freezes after ram checking

Try going into the BIOS and selecting safe or minimal settings/options save and reboot. If this works go back to BIOS and make changes one at a time until it may not work again, then you will know which option is causing the system hang ups. My guess is also your motherboard is SATA 1 capable (1.5
gbs) not SATA 2, in which you could purchase a separate controlller card for your HDD. Good luck.
