My motherboard (intel DG41WV) is starting but not giving output to screen. I have cheked cables sokets. Even i have cheked to other screen. but problem is still. all peripherals (fan, cd-rom...etc) are...

Motherboard installed in computer case;

A) Keyboard Jumper Block

3-pin jumper block, Top of motherboard/ left side. Near the mounting hole, and 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable connector,

GENERAL example of a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

[ This power cable MUST be plugged into the motherboard.
It is power for the Intel processor ]

3-pin jumper block.
Starting at the TOP coming down;
Pins 3, 2 and 1.

Jumper cap should be on Pins 2 and 3.
(Enables the Keyboard wake-up feature. Factory default setting is Enabled. Pins 2 and 3)

B) Clear CMOS Jumper Block.

BOTTOM right corner of motherboard. 3-pin jumper block.
It is to the Left of the bottom/left SATA connector.
It is immediately to the Right of the motherboard mounting hole.

Starting at the Top, and going down towards the bottom edge of the motherboard;
Pins 3, 2, and 1.

Jumper cap should be on Pins 1 and 2.

When you changed the SMPS, do you KNOW for a fact it is a good one?
Did you plug the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?

What COMS setting/s did you change?
I would go back into BIOS Setup, and set that menu screen back to the factory default settings.

My motherboard is getting power from a 450w smps coz the board LED gets on when I switch on the ups. But pressing the power button on the cabinet does not switch on the system. Please help!!!!

From your diagnoses you may have a bad Power On switch, or a bad Power Supply.


An ATX power on switch is connected to the motherboard's Front Panel header.
From there the circuit is continued through the ATX main power cable, and into the Power Supply.

The Power On switch connects the Soft Power On wire, to Ground.
(The Soft Power On wire is abbreviated as PS_ON. The wire is Green)

If the Power On switch is bad the Power Supply will not turn on.

A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail, (Or more than one)
Enough power to light LED lights, and perhaps spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
No Processor operating, no computer.

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.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.
(Older Intel Pentium III's, and comparative AMD processors used less than 51 Watts)

You may have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough to spin fans, or turn the Processor on.

There is a simple test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch.

A jumper wire is used to temporarily connect the Soft Power On wire to ANY Ground wire.
The connection is made at the Back of the ATX main power cable's connector, with the ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and computer plugged into power.

1) The Asus M2N-MX (And SE version) motherboard uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

This is one example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

Looking at the photo to the far right, shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard.
This is the position for the test.
(Computer also plugged into power)

The BACK of the connector is where the wires go into the connector.
The jumper wire is used on the Back side of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
(Soft Power On wire)
The other end of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire.
The jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole far enough to touch a metal terminal.

At the end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable's connector, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down in the socket hole.

The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip.
The paper clip's diameter is small enough, to go right next to the existing wire in the socket hole, and touch the metal terminal.

The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The 'legs' of the U-shape go down into the two socket holes.
The middle is wrapped with a few wraps of black plastic electrical tape.
The taped area is for your finger, and thumb to hold onto.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
There may be a small spark when you make the connection, advising you in advance.

The connection made is no longer than 2 seconds.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

Computer comes on, (Power Supply actually) you know you have a bad Power On switch.
Computer does Not come on, you know you have a bad Power Supply.

I Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.

There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

My Mother is Intel D945GNT with Intel D Processor. Ipurchased it in 2006. From that time till 2007 it works properly. After that there is hang problem comming, and during hang also the display became hazi...

The onboard video chip is dying. Since it's a part of the chipset, it might be also dying. If you're lucky all you need to do is to add a separate video card, disable the onboard video and your problem will go away.

No Video (Intel D945gnt) from boot

I'm having the same problem with my ECS K7S5A ver 3.1. The problem is that that I reset my FSB to an unsupported frequency using a 3rd party BIOS.

Unfortunately this is not the solution you're after, yet probably the only option. To fix the problem you're going to have to contact the manufacturer of the motherboard and let them know that you need a new BIOS ROM chip. You'll have to send the board to them and they will replace the chip for you. Depending on if you're still under warranty or not there may be a fee involved.

Sorry to see it happen to someone else, it is quite devastating.

Open your chassis (cabinet) and look for the bios jumper on the motherboard. It is located near the SATA ports next to the Front Auxiliary Fan connector. Put the jumper in 2-3 to enable maintenance mode. This will allow you to enter bios settings. Then redo any changes that you had made, i.e. reset the memory configuration to auto and save the changes and exit.
Now replace the jumper in 1-2 position. Reboot. And your system will work fine.
