Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

The red led light on the motherboard is usually an indication that it is not recieving enough power. Check your power supply and make sure that it is able to support the new motherboard. I always recommend at least a 450 watt, especially if you added any other internal peripherials such as video graphics, etc.

The good news is it at least boots to bios (which indicates the motherboard is good). Check the power and replace immediately if the above indications are true, as running short on power can cause surges and destroy the new motherboard.

Here is a link to the actual manual, not sure if you have a detailed one:

Unfortunately, they do not indicate the red led light as being a problem (no mention of it at all unless I overlooked it).

Please let me know if you have any questions.

    If I were troubleshooting,

    I would bring the entire computer down to basic! Pull the cables to the cdrom, floppy, etc. Try and start it up.

    It could be a simple bad EIDE cable. Try replacing one or swapping them around.

    Are you running a sata hard drive? If so, check the cable, these go out easily.

    Go into the bios and make sure that the BIOS is recognizing the new motherboard as well as everything else.

    The hard drive you put in there, does it still have the Windows from when it was connected to the other motherboard? If so, this could simply be a corrupted operating system. Microsoft considers changing the motherboard out as being a "new computer" and many have had trouble putting the old hard drive back on unless the motherboard is exactly the same as the old.

    After basic approach, reconnect one cable at a time and check all connections.

    Make sure there is no flash drive connected or a cd in the tray as this can cause the problem also.

    Let me know if any of these work and we can continue troubleshooting.

Means there is no boot-able device detected or cannot find a fixed disk or remove-able media check you hard disk cables followed by your cd/dvd rom witch ever it is. Make sure your cd rom is the first in the order of boot and you have a boo-table disk. If all those things are in order you might have a failed controller weather it be ide/sata

HOW to install windows xp on intel dh61ho motherboad

Hello here is the homepage:

In general, what you'll need to do is:
  • Turn off your computer.
  • Power on again
  • When you see the splash screen or BIOS menu (and before Windows starts to load), hit the Delete key.
This will typically either get you into a boot device menu or the BIOS settings where you should be able to select the device you want to boot from to adjust the boot order. In other words, your computer may normally try to boot first from the hard drive drive.But now you have to select to boot from the dvd drive. Save the changes, and then boot your computer again, this time without hitting any button and lay the windows disk in the dvd drive. If all goes according to plan, you should soon see a "Windows loading" message on your screen and press any key to install windows.You can follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows on your computer.
You also need to make a full format of the harddrive, and reboot again.

Look also in the manual how to setup the bios.

Here is some youtube video that shows how:

When the installation is done, you have to install all the driver for the mainboard.Graphic,sound,chipset etc.

Good luck

I got this computer off side of road and can't get windows to load it's try's then the screen goes black . here is what happens . I turn it on the screen comes up black it asks what I would like to do ?...

The first screen (start windows normally etc) appears because the computer ahs not shut down normally before. Since you choose to start windows (normally or last known...) and the Windows logo comes up with the loading bar, this means that the computer is starting to boot. Some hardware or software (windows) problem appears and the boot never ends. Possible reasons: motherboard failure or hard disk failure. A good idea is to re-install windows to check the results. Mention that in case of reinstalling the windows, during the procedure choose to reformat the hard disk so it will be checked for errors and reported.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Intel D865GLC computer problems.

Go back to what started the problem. You bought 2 1 gig ram sticks. My bet is they're either not matched ram that matches what you already had in your computer or is not compatible with your motherboard or the ram is defective and has bad memory addresses. If your computer has build in video card then it probably gets it's video ram from the system ram. A lot of the blue screens of death are caused by bad memory address although it can look like it's blaming the problem on a certain program or device driver because that is the program or driver that was atempting to use the bad memory address.

I cannot acces my computer stays at intel screen

Open the computer, and you will see near the bottom right corner a blue jumper on 2 of 3 pins. The pins are J9J4 and the jumper should be on pins 1 and 2.

Turn off the computer and the power supply, remove the little round battery from the motherboard, move the blue jumper to pins 2 and 3 and wait 40 seconds. Reinstall the battery, and then move the blue jumper back to pins 1 and 2.

Turn on the power supply, restart the computer and the BIOS settup utility should appear

Hi kjstenny, not sure where you saw the board E210882. This is not a valid Intel model number. The Intel D865GLC is a valid model number & you can download the manual for this at the link below:
Main Intel link for D865GLC:
MB layout page 14 & 15. Than see page 13 block D, J9J1 Front panel pins. Page 43 for jumper connections.

Intel D865PCD (Matched). Front panel, page 34 & 35. Download manual at this link:
Main link:

Intel D865PCK - (No Match). (Or no longer listed).
D865PE50 - (No Match). (Or no longer listed).

The most common wire color for each 2-pin connector will be negative, including the color black.

Good luck kjstenny!
