Question about Intel D945GTP Motherboard

1 Answer

General inquiry This is the motherboard i have, it is powered by an unknown brand LPG6 - 500W PSU. I have one 512mb DDR2 667 module, but I'm budgeting on adding another for at least 1 Gb in all. I'm running XP 32bit on the system, and have a Pentium IV 3.2GHz CPU installed. I know its not the ideal gaming machine and its not worth drooling over, but i got it for a real bargain (R2500.00) and am working with what i have till i can one day start my practice as advocate and leach off my poor, unsuspecting clients, thus making enough money for something better... -vampire- jj. With what i have, I'm considering a PSU upgrade, RAM addition and graphics card upgrade (my old ASUS 7900gt fried, i feel the generic cooling solution wasn't adequate though it wasn't under warranty to get a replacement - ...3rd party dealer) Anyway, I'm now considering buying a new graphics card, as I'd like to play some of the high gfx games out currently, Oblivion (yes i still like it, worn out as it is) Far Cry, FEAR, DOOM3, Crysis (if possible), BioShock etc. Now, my question is, what make is best to buy for this purpose, considering my specs? NVIDIA or ATI? eVGA, BFG, Sapphire, XFX, Gigabite, Leadtech, ASUS...? Your insight is greatly appreciated, thanks

Foxconn motherboard with no display and bios

1. Try re-seating your ram, video card, other pci cards, and cpu.

2. Check that all the cables are plugged in correctly.

3. Take the cmos battery out for 30 seconds to reset the Bios.

4. Just because the motherboard is getting some power doesn't mean it's not faulty. Check to make sure your power supply is good with a psu tester like one of these:

If you do these things and your psu checks out to be good then your motherboard is dead...

My P4 VMM 1.0 with win 98 and XP always restart after shuting down. Please help me to solve the problem

This is most commonly an issue of either the ACPI instruction being sent to an ATX power supply being misinterpreted as a restart command, or the controller in the power supply being faulty in general.

The root of the issue can be either your motherboard, or your power supply itself. To test this, try using a different power supply on the motherboard. If it works fine, try testing your power supply on another motherboard. If your power supply works fine there as well, then there's simply an incompatibility of some sort between the motherboard and PSU.

If on the other hand it doesn't work fine on the other motherboard as well, then you know the PSU is faulty.

The degree of fault in the PSU can be anything between harmless and severe; for safety's sake, I would recommend replacing the PSU entirely if a new/different PSU resolves the issue, as your PSU burning out may cause damage to your motherboard and/or (other) connected devices.

1GB seen as 512Mb

I think you are right, you have to update your BIOS, or try to change your Kingston to Super Talent or other compatible with your motherboard ram. Good luck!

Auto restarting,

I think a general cleaning including the contact points of the RAM and checking that all wires are snug tight including all jumpers are properly seated. If required clean the PC power switch with a spray of alcohol/spirit. After all these I hope your problem disappears.................sodeep

Motherboard shuts down before booting !

You should clarify this a bit more, but please make sure all of your fans are plugged in and the no jumpers are set to over-clock the processor.Also, double check that everything is fundamentally compatible.

Non response from tower

If you're hoping for a bargain out of it, it depends how much your time is worth. Given that the PSU was dead, and other components are showing problems, one or more of them were probably affected. Could be the fan is spinning slow due to damage, and the motherboard is refusing to fully init because of the fan... but I doubt it. The CPU may or may not be okay, but the value is likely to be low. The RAM is probably okay, but again, value is likely to be low. Your best bet would be if you had a second similar computer, to try interchanging parts and see which are damaged/working. In general, though, the system probably is of very low value when working. It looks like it may be model T3624; if so, a model recently went on eBay for $140 (including shipping), in working condition and with 512mb RAM. (item 190155139483) Personally, I would try to sell it as-is for $75, with the dead PSU, or the amount you paid for it (if applicable). Depending what the PSU cost you, you could also add that to the price and ask for that, with the working PSU. At the end of the day, the question becomes, how much would it cost to buy this computer (or a similar model) in known working condition? Is the value of your time, or replacement parts, going to exceed that?
