Question about Intel D915PCY Motherboard

2 Answers

Computer won't power on right away

Nothing happens when I push the power button... no lights, no fans, no nothing. Eventually, if I push the button repeatedly (could be up to 50 times), the computer will power up. Found that if I remove the network card from the motherboard, computer will power up on the first push of power button every time. New network card produced same results. Moving card to another PCI slot also didn't help. Do you think the motherboard has a problem?

    I like your answer, but could the PCI Controller be bad even if the computer eventually DOES start with the network card installed? I guess it could be an intermittent problem. Note that the computer works fine once it is started... internet, programs... all work fine. I will try flashing the BIOS, and let you know what happens. Do you recommend a BIOS update off the Intel site, or should I just leave it with the current version? Also, if I do buy a new motherboard, should I stick with the same model?

    I tried flashing the bios...no luck. Motherboard time?

  • ericdeere Jan 27, 2008

    I updated the bios...it didn't work, so I ordered a new motherboard. I found a D915PCYL...same board but with built-in LAN. I'll let you know if it solves the problem.

    I put a new board in, and the first time I tried to power up the computer I had to push the power button a bunch of times before it finally started up...same as before. However, once I shut it down it powers up on the first push of the button every time now. I was concerned as to why it didn't start the first time...is this normal with a new board?

Hi,

Your problem should be solved with a new board.

Wll it could be your pci controller is damaged.. (In thic case the only solution is to buy a new board)

Or you bios might need flashing..

Unplug your system
Open up the system,
put back in your network card
remove the battery on the main board
hit the power button 7 times
replace the battery
plug it back in and try to boot now

When it boots, you need to enter the setup and load your default settings then save and exit..

    yep sure seems that way.

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 25, 2008

    yes sometims the pci controller does infact stall on the booting,, or it refuses to boot at all.. after the pci goes then its the ide and sata ,, by that time usually it causes damages to the processor and ide deives,, i'd suggesst you change it asap.

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 25, 2008

    as for the bios update, you can try it and see if it helps,, the main board i recommend is MSI.. i stick to MSI main boards and AMD processors,, if you wish to try thr bios update and see if it works by all means please do, it could save you some money if it works, but pasically your problem is the PCI controller isnt authenticating the NET WORK CARD.. Let me know what happens

Computer won't do anything, keyboard does not light up, screen is blank


So there is not so much as a BIOS message on screen? Any beeps?
If there is no life at all, you have a CPU/motherboard failure. This may be direct or indirect (e.g. no power to MoBo). Check your connections.
Otherwise, your boot device may not be operating. This is usually a dead or disconnected HDD. Check that it is plugged in. Does it get warm? Can you feel any vibrations from it? It should spin even if your cpu is dead but MoBo is alive.

How do I know if the power supply is bad on gateway gt5676 computer? I push power button and nothing happens. I unplug it and the green light flashes on the power supply( Bestec ATX 300 12 EB3). Plug it...


u can buy power supply testers, just a device you plug the power supply into, or try a new power supply. but if nothing is happening no fans etc theres a good chance its just the power supply.

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
