Question about Computers & Internet

New product failing

Just purchased a Core 2 Duo processor E6550, Gigabyte m/b (GA-G31MX-S2), and 2G OCZ Gold Series RAM (PC-6400). Installed all items into case. Upon start-up, components start but cpu fan immediately slows & quits. I noticed that with 4-pin ATX plug in place, problem occurs. But when I remove 4-pin ATX plug & only use 24 pin ATX, cpu fan will run. Tried with 2 different power supplies (1 being an Aspire ATX-A500W). Same problem with both P.S. Is this a faulty m/b or some other problem? Also hear no system beep on start-up. If help is possible, I would appreciate it. Hate to send it all back if problem can be narrowed down. Thanks in advance. Bill

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

i think you mean upgrade and yes, if you want to run latest games and good performance you need to change your rig. the gigabyte ga-81915p is very limited, in case of processors used most are old like P4,celeron D and P4HT you need something that can support core 2 series.

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to :


First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

Will not display anything when booting up.

does your motherboard has a builtin video card? u probably connected your monitor to it which supposed to be connected to your new installed video card.
