Troubleshooting new motherboard installation

Issues with new motherboard ?

I just installed this motherboard into my chassis with an Intel 2.8 gHZ HT processor and all I am getting is the cpu fan spinning up. I first started with just the cpu, memory, and the cables from the chassis plugged in.I have taken it down to the bare minimum of just the cpu, speaker, and the power cables. I don't get any video or any audio from the speaker.

Some background on the system. The system went down when my wife went to power it on and she felt static electricity when pressing the power button. Ever since then, the machine would power up for approx 3 secs and then turn off. I tried a different power supply and it would do the same thing. I thought it would just be the motherboard that got zapped and not the cpu or RAM.

Any ideas?

What are some mid to high end compatible GPUs for this motherboard

instead of assuming a comparability issue, have you considered a power supply issue?

have you disabled the onboard video?

have you exchanged the card? have you tried a different brand

according to your boards tech support:

  • Some PCI Express graphics cards require more power.
  • Remove and reinstall the new card to make sure it is fully seated in the slot.
  • Try the card in a different slot, if possible.
  • Make sure other devices and cables inside the chassis were not disturbed or loosened when you installed the new card.

additionally, you need to make sure that you have more than 2 gigabytes of system ram; although, wwith an i7, i would expect yo have that already covered.

I have Intel HT 3.00 Ghz Processor and Intel D102GGC2 motherboard. May i expand RAM upto 2 G.B.and may i install Windows 7

The Intel D102GGC2 motherboard has two memory slots that will support up to 1G of DDR2 533 (PC4200) or DDR2 400 (PC3200) SDRAM in each slot for a maximum total of 2G. There is a note on the Intel webpage that states that the memory should support SPD (Serial Presence Detect), which means that it should conform to JEDEC standards. Here is a website that sells memory for that motherboard:

If the memory doesn't support SPD you will probably get annoying popups telling you such. See this webpage:

Sorry, the Intel D102GGC2 does not support Windows 7, which means the drivers for Windows 7 are not available from Intel. That motherboard will support Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Linux.

There is a free transformation pack available here:

Here is the Intel webpage for the D102GGC2:

I could use a diagram of the mother board for a Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz processor. I picked one up second hand to replace my old processor

If your processor 2.4 Ghz HT you need socket 478 motherboard,System bus 800.without HT you need 533 FSB Motherboard.You can buy easily.Where you live? I do not know.China are available made 478 PIN mother board.

Need a prossesor for motherboard

You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Installing sound drivers

First, visit this website:

Next up select Windows XP Professional as your operating system. Now click, "Drivers." The first result should be the Realtek drivers, which are what you're searching for. Download them. Once they finished downloading open the file and the drivers should be installed automatically.

If there's anything else I can help you with, let me know. If this solution solved your problem, please rate the solution.

Intel D865GBF hangs for error thermal event

The solution to your problem can be found at this webpage :
It guides you on how to solve overheating problems. Personally I think you need to unseat your processors and refix after cleaning and applying a fresh coat of the Heat Conducting Paste and re-seat it very, very carefully. Gently in the beginning and once u are sure that it has got into its slot smoothly then press harder until u hear two cliks, like a double lock. Fix the Heat sink &see that the retaining clips are snug tight. Try it & post the results........sodeep
Quote "High Temperature Alerts
If Intel Active Monitor or Intel Desktop Utilities alerts you about temperatures above set thresholds, there are a number of steps you can take.

Check for proper airflow:
  • Make sure the processor and chassis fans are running.
  • Check the cabling; make sure cables are not interfering with proper airflow through the chassis.
  • Check that nothing is blocking airflow into and out of the chassis' airflow vents. This is common in direct airflow systems (BTX). Chassis manufacturers may apply a dust filter in front of the CPU fan inlet. Check that the filter is clear and free of dust buildup.
  • Make sure that the air intakes for the external fans are unobstructed and are located at least several inches away from walls and other items.
  • Make sure that the power supply fan is running properly and any other external case fans are running properly.
  • Consider adding another chassis fan.
Other troubleshooting steps:
  • If your PC uses an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in the LGA775 package, be sure the heatsink is properly installed and 'locked'. Pay particular attention to the proper orientation of the locking pins and give a good push down on the pins (sounds like a double click) to lock them into place. For complete processor and heatsink integration information, refer to Boxed Processor Installation.
  • Verify the chassis/case and power supply are appropriate for the processor model and frequency and the motherboard you are using.
  • Verify the thermal solution for the processor is adequate for the processor and frequency of the processor.
  • Make sure the processor fan cable is connected to the correct fan header (specifically for the processor). Refer to your motherboard documentation for more information.
  • Make sure that the thermal interface material or the thermal grease is applied to the processor properly.
  • Update the system BIOS to the newest version. This will often correct problems with how the system measures temperature.
Fan Control Behavior Changes after BIOS Updates
After updating to the latest BIOS version on certain Intel Desktop Boards, the CPU fan may not go to full speed operation until the processor reaches about 72°C (162°F) and all system fans go to full speed at 75°C (167°F). You may see temperature alerts in Intel Desktop Utilities.
Previously, certain processors' thermal values were not available to the BIOS so the BIOS was unable to perform the appropriate fan control (the fans ran at 100% constantly). With recent BIOS updates, the thermal values are available and the BIOS will run the appropriate fan control. This means the processor may reach temperatures of up to 75°C (167°F) before the fan will go to full speed. The fan control now allows processor temperatures to rise to optimal levels while the slower fan speeds improve acoustics.
Setting Temperature Thresholds in Intel® Active Monitor or Intel® Desktop Utilities
By default, the temperature thresholds in the hardware monitoring software are set as follows: Zone Intel® Active Monitor
Intel® Desktop Utilities (ver. and earlier)
Intel® Desktop Utilities (ver. and later) Processor 75°C
Zone 1, Zone 2, or Motherboard Zone 50°C
If you've checked for proper airflow and performed the other troubleshooting steps listed above and you still consistently receive high temperature alerts in any of the temperature zones:
  • If you are using Intel Active Monitor, you may increase the temperature threshold. You can safely increase the Zone 1, Zone 2 or Motherboard Zone threshold up to 60 Degrees Celsius (140 Degrees Fahrenheit).
  • If you are using Intel Desktop Utilities version or earlier, upgrade the software to the latest version, which sets the zone default thresholds to 65°C.
  • It is not recommended that you increase the Processor Zone threshold.

Processor compatibility

looks like you limited to the p4 Prescott, this is a p4 list of the cpu support from asus. I also looked at their bios update page and found no bios improvement. if you can move to the 775 platform ,you can move from p4. otherwise, the p4's are still  good . I had the cpu that is the 2nd one down. 3.2ghz oc'd to 3.8ghz full time with a max of 4.0ghz on air[775 platform] quad-pumped gave me a 1001.3mhz FSB
