Question about Gigabyte GA-8ID533 Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer stopped responding ! Nothing appears.

Hi
I have a GA-8ID533 Motherboard. Nearly one month ago my computer started to reboot again and again. When it came up , after 10 minutes of operation it showed a blue screen showing the progress of dumping RAM or something. Now it does not boot at all. It just turns on and the green light is on , but nothing appears on the monitor. Also there is no drive activity. Just fans work! I think the motherboard is burnt. Any other possibility? Please tell me.

    Thank you man!
    I did that BUT it did not make any difference. You know ? I think it is damaged. I mean the motherboard. Any other suggestion ?

  • Gr8MP Dec 18, 2007

    Hey Tom !
    I should appreciate you for caring. Anyway I should clarify one thing: When the computer starts the system does not perform POST ,as I know, and nothing actually happens except turning on of a lamp and fans. Thats it. Considering this please answer to my question. I do not think RAM can make the system perform the POST or otherwise stop its operation.
    What is your idea ?

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    Yeah! Two of them look the same as pictures. So what should I do now ?

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    Oh man I changed the two capacitors and the system did its POST. BUT in the middle of the setup of windows it shows that blue screen dumping the RAM .... . So what should I do now ? You mean even now I can not do anymore?! Please help me. I was getting hopeful!

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    Thank you man. I will do that. In the mid time can I test other caps ? I am doubtful about them. Can you tell me how can I test a capacitor ?

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    I can get into BIOS and did the same as you said and tried everything there. But nothing changed. Just after a few minutes (1 or 2) the blue screen of memory dumping appears and the computer stops responding. As for the update, I have not added anything new to my computer, so why is the need for update. It worked well formerly. Any other suggestion please ?
    Thank you.

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    Thanks. But how I can test the RAM? You know I can not install anything on it because that dark blue screen comes in. Also I do not have any other computer able to accept SDRAM!

  • Gr8MP Dec 19, 2007

    Thank you. I have a friend who can provide me a used one. I will test it within the following three days.

  • Gr8MP Dec 22, 2007

    Hi
    I tested another Ram on the motherboard and the results did not change. Nevertheless I could install windows 98. However from time to time it shows windows 98 blue screen instead of the one of windows XP . That when it comes is unpredictable. You don't think another part of the mainboard or the system is damaged. Please help me. Thanks.

  • Gr8MP Dec 22, 2007

    It is different every time and each time shows a different group of numbers.

  • Gr8MP Dec 22, 2007

    Yes, it shows everything.

  • Gr8MP Dec 23, 2007

    I scanned the hardware using a program. It says there are some problems in the disk. Can it be the cause of stop? I want to know that is it so important.
    One thing , the computer never ever stops responding unless I do a hard a semi-hard disk activity or system activity. Please respond to me.
    Thanks.

  • Gr8MP Dec 23, 2007

    Here is one of the errors:
    A fatal exception OE has occured at 0028:c0041AC1 in VXD VFAT (01) + 0000A1F1

  • Gr8MP Dec 23, 2007

    I actually think I have not installed that with Windows 98. Anyway I will change the HDD and inform you.

  • Gr8MP Dec 23, 2007

    I know. I checked the HDD on another system and it worked fine. So it was not the problem. So the things remain are the CPU and the motherboard itself. Can you tell me where is the problem and whether it can be fixed or not?
    Thanks.

  • Gr8MP Dec 23, 2007

    So you think I should replace the motherboard , I mean buy a new one or the current one can be repaired ?

  • Gr8MP Dec 24, 2007

    Ok . Thank you. I go and look for a used one.

  • Gr8MP Jan 09, 2008

    Yeh
    I finally got a new one and that worked!
    Thanks for your help anyway.

    How many ram sticks do you have in there?

    If you have more than 1 take 1 out and/ or switch it around.

    If you have 1, then it should be closes to the CPU.

    Let me know!!

    Thanks.

    Gr8MP, look at your board closely. Are any of the caps. leaking or tops popped up?

    Sorry to say that it is time to get a new board.

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 19, 2007

    If you can get into BIOS, change to default configuration.Or if it is an old board update the BIOS.

    With a memory dump you should be looking at the RAM. Try running memtest to check it. Maybe a bad cap took out a stick



    Let me know!!
    Thanks

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 19, 2007

    There are some places that check ram. I dont know where you live, you may want to call an electronics store near you.

    Or,

    you may want to get a new one anyway, just for the heck of it..

    Does the blue screen have any error codes on it?

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 22, 2007

    Does the bios show everything that is attached to your board?

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 23, 2007

    Gr8MP, OE is Outlook Express. The part of the disk that Outlook Express is on could be bad. Do you have another disk that you can put in?

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 23, 2007

    OE comes with Win98

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 23, 2007

    I am still thinking it is the motherboard.

    Maybe the ide controller.

  • Thomas Christopher
    Thomas Christopher Dec 23, 2007

    I think that you are due for a new one.

How to reset the bios p4 titan ga-8id533 motherboard


Hi,
As the computer starts up hit the Del key, that will take you into the BIOS utility, once in the BIOS load optimized defaults, this will reset the BIOS configuration.
Failing this just remove the power cord from the back of the computer and take the motherboard battery out for 20 minutes, this will fully reset the BIOS so you will have to input the time and date.



Regards.

Hi
I had the same problem. Mine was because of the mainboard capacitors. I quote some part of my post and ones of Tom.
"Nearly one month ago my computer started to reboot again and again. When it came up , after 10 minutes of operation it showed a blue screen showing the progress of dumping RAM or something. Now it does not boot at all. It just turns on and the green light is on , but nothing appears on the monitor. Also there is no drive activity. Just fans work! I think the motherboard is burnt. Any other possibility?"

If yours was like mine , you should just buy the caps and replace them or get them replaced by an semi-expert or something. Good luck and keep me informed.

PCI GA-8ID533 V1.1


there is no PCI lock on any retail boards. But there are IRQ sharings and conflicts. Set IRQ to auto, if not, then manualy and if so, then disable a few things, just to free up some IRQs. All depends on the board, best is to consult the manual for the IRQ sharing table and work with that. (disable one SERIAL, IDE port or USB port if you need an extra IRQ) Also check for onboard equivalent to the card you are adding, disable the onboard part...
