Question about Gigabyte GA-8S648-L Motherboard

1 Answer

Switches on but doesn't load.

My motherboard's been having a few problems.
It started when I had a power cut. The machine was switched off but pluged in. When the power was restored it didn't beep and fire up straight away. I had to turn it off and on a couple of times.
It then started up ok but it had loaded default BIOS.
This was fine until I had another power out. Now it won't recover. I've changed the battery and unplugged practically everything from the board apart from memory and hd. Still no joy.... any ideas?
Powers up, runs drive check nothing more.

-take out the ramm dimms,than put them back.
I guarantee you this helps.and do it with the power cable out of the power supply
-make a bootable cd with a new bios  form the manufacturers site and under dos mode rewrite the bios.This is to be done in case you didnt manage to solve it with the ramm dims.
good luck..bye bye

Will a Tricity Bendix AW1000W Washing Machine run on a clock timer?

hi your machine will remember prog if there a power cut and restart from where it was interupted. So if you load the machine and start it then turn the power off on the timer it will continue when the timer switches back on (yes is the answer)

Motherboard shuts off

You may want to try using another power supply rated at 300W plus. Also make sure your RAM is unbuffered and non-ECC. To set the switch correctly, you need to goto look at the exact model number of the CPU. Because CPU with similar marketing name could have different front side bus speed.

One more thing to look for, make sure there is no metal standoff sticking out of the bottom of the case shorting out the mother board. But my first guess is the power supply.

Washing Machine will not turn on

Check the fuse braker (box out side) The lid switch may be stuck with soap and etc stopping the plunger from operating properly. Lid and door switches stuck, see if not pushed in and release out when lid or door opens. Hope this may help you.

No power when pushing the power button on my washer

try a resistance check on the input and output connections on the switch,the thicker feed wires going in and out of switch, when its plugged out,these switches carry heavy loads and can fail often,follow local safety guidelines when working on electrics hope this helps

Dear User. to plug in the AGP card you dont need to check or see the CMOS. if u have pluged an AGP card and problem still persist then the problem is at *********** side or in RAM. just plug out RAM and other hardware except Processor and cables of switches. the switch on it and if it gives beep then your motherboard and processor is OK. there would be problem in your RAM so change RAM. and if it dont give the beep at startup then the problem is in your motherboard or power supply.
