Question about Gigabyte GA-8ST800 Motherboard

1 Answer

System not on

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.

Self having the following configuration on Home desktop PC. INTEL 1.7GHz, P4, D845GBV motheboard with AGP ATI Radeon 9000 graphics card, RAM is 2 x DIMM DDR2 266 Hz, 1 x 1GB + 1 x 512MB total 1.5GB RAM....


Power down and disconnect AC power from your PC. Remove the AGP card and DIMM again and use some "canned air" or dusting spray to get any dust off the contacts on your motherboard and your memory and AGP card. Wiping the AGP card contacts with some isopropyl alcohol (also known as IPA or "rubbing alcohol") and a clean, lint-free cloth can also help. When everything is dry, put your card and memory back in and try powering up again.

I have not been able to add any AGP card to my PC.
My PC is a cube PC so I have been trying to install a "low end" AGP video card without a separate power connector. My only really requires are DirectX 9.x support and a minimum of 128MB (and no power connector)

The card I am currently trying to install is a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9600Pro with 256MB.

I have also tried a ATI Radeon 9550 with 256MB and a Nvidia card

I have done all of the usual things, such as disabling onboard graphics, removing old video drivers, verified latest chipset drivers are installed, I reviewed the graphic adapter and don't see any conflicts etc.

I wonder if any of the cards I am trying to install will work with my AGP slot.
The manual for this Gigabyte card states "AGP 3.0 Slot or greater is required"
Unfortunately, this requirement wasn't on the Gigabyte or NewEgg web sites or the back of the box. Only in the install manual.

My Motherboard manual states "AGP 1.5v Card is required".

I got great AGP information from www.playtool.com. I used some of the tools suggested there such as Sandra Lite and other tools to try to determine what version my AGP Slot is. These tools don't seem to clearly state what

My PC is a Small Form Factor PC with 220W Power Supply.
It has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics
gBox P4 Blue CF-986L
Motherboard is a CFI-968L with last bios released (1.04)
www.american-media.com
Pentium 4 3.06Ghz
1G RAM
80G HD
Chipset is Intel 845GE
Intel Extreme Graphics
Windows XP Home

This is a awesome PC and I really would like to extend the life of it my adding any AGP card that supports DirectX 9.x

I have armor command but can't get it to work on xp sp2 despite trying every setting combo in the compatibility window. how do i get it to work?


WinXP SP2:I've tried other systems too with no luck either. However, I've had this working (almost properly = every once in a big while it would hang and reboot was the only recourse) using an Intel D845GEBV2 motherboard with a 2.0GHz intel P4 w/ 1GB ram. I've found that the trick is the AGP card. The system stayed up long enough to play for hours. I had a Rosewill AGP Radeon ATI 9200SE video card. Apparently the 'rage' :) was AGP at the time this game hit the streets (1998) and this game is very AGP touchy.
I've also tried to run this on my P4 641 OC to 4.0GHz with 2GB ram with a Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis AGP 8x video and ... no go. Similar issues with hand and config.
Right now I have it working on a just built Seattle 2 PII 440BX ATX motherboard (aka MICRON PC). It has a PIII @ 650MHz and 768MB ram. Boot to MS-DOS or Win98SE2. The video card on this one is an ATI Rage Mobility-L. A dinky little card, you can find one easily on EBAY for really cheap, but mine (bought on EBAY years ago for like $48) was out of an older MICRON system (not this Seattle 2 MB). Works fine. Really had to look on web hard to find a video driver for it ...This config also works great for these DOS games that I miss ... DOS Protected mode box within Win98 works perfect for Commander Keen and the original Duke Nukem!

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.

To install graphic card on Intel Motherboard D845GVSR


as a rule any Pentium 4 motherboard would not support a CPU let alone a video card that could play Crysis at any level that would be enjoyable. It's likely you either don't have a video card card expansion slot or that the one you have is AGP.

If you don't, sorry nothing you can do. If you have AGP you could in theory add a sufficiant card to meet the minimum spec and load the game but the store would have done you a disservice by selling it to you as your processor and RAM would barely alloww the game to load and even if a 1GB 9800 could be supported by you PC the performance your CPU could offer would leave the game lagging significantly on the physics side which would really mess up the game.

Frankly I work days in a retail computer store and have played crysis on several PCs, In my experience the minimum PC for "good" gameplay is a tri core AMD at least 2.1Ghz per CPU with 4GB of RAM and a 9600 512MB, and I have tried it on several machines.

My personal recommendation would be bare minimum:

Q6600 or AMD 8000 series Quad Core
4GB RAM
9800GT 512MB or ATI 4850 512MB

This will get a decent frame rate and support at least 1680 resolution, in gaming though, more is always better, frankly it would be cheaper to scrap that plan and by an Xbox with a copy of it's version of Crysis for under $400 unless you plan to play other PC only games in which case you can build what I recomended for around $1000US less if you already have a decent monitor or plan to hook up to a 120Hz LCD TV


Hope this helped,

I have a 256MB DIMM RAM and want to upgrade my video.


Yes it will work the speed of the ram on the video card is for processing on the video card, and is independent of the speed of the system RAM, as long as it is compatible with the AGP type on your motherboard you are good to go, some 8X speed cards will not run full speed in older Motherboard with a max speed of 4X, check your motherboard info and it should tell you what the max is for yoru board.
Hope this helps, Have a great weekend

Intel P$ 1.8 mhz on a D845HV/D845WN board


Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
Here is one site: http://www.colordrives.com/sapphire-ati-radeon-9550-256mb-ddr-agp-4x-8x-video-card---retail-box.html
When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
I hope this helped.

Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?
