Question about Gigabyte GA-8ST800 Motherboard
I have this motherboard with Intel P4 2.8Ghz and 2.4GB ram, (2x1GB DIMM and 1x256MB DIMM), connected to an ATI 9600 AGP video card and DVD drive and hard drive. Everything runs ok since I upgrade the RAM to this. But yesterday, after I change the BIOS setting to Top performance, and reboot, the system half and it did not display anything. The screen was completely black, the signal was sent to the monitor. Usually, there was a beep sound after power on and then the screen appear with memory check ... Now there is nothing. I tried to isolate all cable and plug from drives, also I remove the AGP video card and replace with a PCI video card that I know is working in another system. Nothing change. The CPU fan is still running, power seems to go through the hard drive and CD/DVD drive, I can hear them spin. So I think my motherboard is still alive. But how can I reset it or bring it back to the normal condition?
If anybody have a solution for this, please help me. Appreciate that.
You'll probably need to reset the bios to it's defaults. This should be done with the computer off and the power cord unplugged. You can either look in the motherboard manual and find the reset pins to short or easier still...Look on the motherboard and find the bios battery. It will probably be a flat battery that looks like something out of a calculator. Pull the batter out and wait a few minutes and put it back in. After you power up, the computer should boot directly into the setup, if not enter the bios setup on post-up and restore the settings to what you normally used if it wasn't the default settings.
