From the description and serial number this model uses a fairly standard Intel® Desktop Board D945GPM. You can get a picture of all the connection from the following website: http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/pm/pm_con.htm

Please keep in mind that some of the connections are optional so you may not have all of these connections on your board; such as the parallel port for example.

Why is there no picture but sound?


Can you tell us a bit more about the problem? It would be helpful if we knew:
1) What device are you using to connect to Netflix (computer, DVD player, TV, etc.)?
2) When you use that device for something other than Netflix, do you see a picture? So if you're using a DVD player, can you play DVDs? Can you watch TV?
3) Can you log into your Netflix account on your computer and watch movies on your computer? Can you login from someone else's computer and try that?
3) When did the problem start?

Some shot-in-the-dark steps that apply to all electronics:
1) Turn everything off. Turn it all back on.
2) If that doesn't work, unplug everything. Wait 30 seconds, then plug it all back in.
3) Check all the cables (from power to your TV and Netflix device, cables coming from your peripherals to the TV, etc.). Even if they seem to be well-seated, unplug them and plug them back in.
4) Try new connections. If your TV was connected by HDMI, and you have a different way of connecting your device (DVI, component, RCA, s-video, coax, whatever) try it. If your device connects to the Internet wirelessly, see if you can get a wired connection. Swap cables wherever you can.
5) If you can, try interchanging components. So, for example, try connecting to a different HDMI port on your TV. Try other devices on your TV. Take your Netflix device (if it's not your TV) to a different TV.

Those last 2 steps may solve the problem, but are more likely to isolate the problem. (For example, if your DVD player doesn't work no matter what TV it's connected to, then the problem is the DVD player.)

Update us with as much info as you can.

D945gtp how to connect cd-rom hardware


1) IDE {PATA} DVD burner drive:

For an IDE { PATA } DVD burner, connect to the 40-pin IDE header on the motherboard. This is located to the right side of the Ram Memory slots.
It is the longer header that has 40 contact pins. {39 actually}

( The shorter connector on the motherboard is for a Floppy Drive.
{34 pins} It is above the IDE 40-pin connector )

NOTE*
The IDE connector on the motherboard should be keyed. Should have a cutout on one side. This is so the Number 1 pin in the flat IDE ribbon cable, will line up with Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector.

Some flat IDE ribbon cables, do not have a Locating Lug on the connector. (Small rectangular 'bump')

Number 1 pin on the IDE ribbon cable will be on the side that has a faint RED stripe on it.

Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector is at the Bottom, with the motherboard installed.

The side of the flat ribbon IDE cable that has the faint red stripe on it, goes DOWN, when installed in the motherboard connector.

If the DVD drive does not have a cutout for it's circuit board, the faint red stripe of the flat ribbon IDE cable, goes towards the power cable connection.

2) SATA DVD burner drive:
You have 4 Serial ATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard.
Your SATA harddrive should be plugged into the SATA1 header.

You can choose any open available SATA header, to plug your SATA DVD burner drive into.
BIOS will see it once you turn the computer on.

3) If you somehow have been using an IDE {PATA} harddrive, and have it connected to your IDE connector on the motherboard, you SHOULD not use a DVD drive on that flat IDE ribbon cable, also.

BIOS has to find which device has the Operating System on it, (Windows), and then hand the computer over to the Operating System.

To state again, BIOS will look at both devices connected to that flat ribbon cable. The Harddrive, and the DVD drive.
It will then determine that the Harddrive, is the device that has Windows on it, not the DVD drive.

This slows the computer down, and could result in a blue screen.

If you have an IDE harddrive plugged into the motherboard, it would be best to use a SATA DVD drive.

After plugging the hdmi cable, we have the sound but no video


Some ideas:
  • Make sure the correct input is selected for your display device.
  • You may need to change the video out setting on your video source device (Blu Ray player, cable box, etc) to turn on the HDMI output port. See the video source's manual.
  • Devices connected to HDMI are sometimes picky about the order they turn on. Try turning off the video source and video device, then turn on the video source, wait a few seconds, then turn on the display. If that doesn't work, try reversing the order that they are turned on. If this is the problem, you can buy a universal remote, like the Harmony, that will start devices in a specified order.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

In order of best to worst quality, and depending on which connectors both have.
1. Hdmi ( Video and Sound in one cable )
2. RGB also known as color stream (Red,Blue, and Green RCA ) Sound Seperate ( Red and White RCA )
3. Composite ( Yellow RCA ) Sound Seperate ( Red and White RCA ) sometimes mono (single sound RCA)
4. COAX (cable) which most DVD players don't have.

All RCA connections on devices should be center color coded And grouped by connection Video 1 Video 2 ect.

HP Pavilion 7955 main HD failed; my data is on second drive (Maxtor ATA/EIDE) - still good. I want to install this as a second drive in Dell Optiplex 620 which has SATA main drive. The only IDE cables are...


Most IDE cables have THREE connectors:
* one to the motherboard
* one to the "primary" device (CD/DVD or disk-drive)
* one to the "secondary" device (disk-drive or CD/DVD)

If your IDE cable only has TWO connectors, buy a cable with THREE connectors, and connect your disk-drive to the third connector.

No sound


Either the sound driver is not installed or
Your player doesn't support the DVD's audio extension or
There are some audio options (like in the case of VLC player you have Audio--audio track--track1,track2) causing the trouble.

I would like to suggest you to use a software that can handle most of the file extension like VLC.
Secondly,to check if the driver is installed or not go to Control Panel--Sound,Speech and audio devices--sound and audio devices--see if you can slide the Device Volume and if it's dimmed than the driver is not installed also check if Mute is unchecked.
For downloading the driver,note down the Motherboards model no. and search the specific driver on Google.

Missing bios, and power supply/switch problem


Hi Jim!
First of all I'm from Sweden and I'm writing this 3 o'clock in the morning so there might be some spelling errors ;)

Yes, the powerswitch can be a real pain. since you need the schematics of your specific motherboard... to get this you need to know what model your board are. typically its written somewhere on the board with slightly larger letters/numbers than the rest, OR, if it's a typically brand computer (HP, COMPAQ, DELL, IBM etc.) with its original board you should be able to get the model number by just looking at some number on the computer case. example: DELL OPTIPLEX GX270 and seaching for that computer model on ther website. can't promise that they will give out any schematics though...but its worth a shot ;) If you cant find any schematics for your motherboard just post the model of your motherboard here and ill see if i can provide some feedback about it...

About the CD/DVD, try to boot with just 1 device powered up at a time, since basically CD's and DVD's are the same when it comes to interfaces like IDE. so either go with the DVD player OR the CD-ROM player to make it easier to find out whats wrong. After you have installed XP successfully you can try to connect/add the other device and boot up the computer again -XP should install it automatically.
Furthermore with the DVD or CD (whichever you want to try installing XP with). the cable connecting it to the motherboard and the DVD/CD should be in the SECONDARY IDE port on the motherboard (PRIMARY IDE port is for the HDD -Hard Disk Drive) and the jumper or "plug" on the dvd should be set as MASTER (should be a sign like "MA" or something, usually theres just those two pins that needs to be connected) there should also be others like SL for SLAVE and CS for CABLE SELECT but you wont need to bother about them. Master means the primary drive (the one that boots first on that channel, when installing win xp for example, this drive is the one that should contain the CD or DVD) Slave means a secondary drive - works as normal once in windows but is not preferred to install the base OS from. Cable is meant for the motherboard to decide wheter the device should be master or slave depending on which port on the cable it is connected to. also with the IDE cables; the port that are farthest away from the motherboard connector is the MASTER port. a rule which is not so clearly described.

You might need to enter the BIOS too to select the DVD drive as the default booting device in the boot order... usually its ranked from the top where the device on the top of the list is the one booting first.

Regarding the "NTLDR missing" (NT Loader) problem its just a file in the windows structure that is not recognized since you installed the OS (Operating System) in another computer.
Installing Win XP to a harddrive in anoher computer will most likely not solve your problem, as Win XP is based on the NT (New Technology) it isn't as flexible as older systems eg. Win 98. Your only real shot of succeeding in this matter is to simply install on the very computer that should hade this drive by default. (read: the computer your having trouble with)

Hope this helps out somehow, it would be nice to hear how this project ends up.

PS. For the record, my haircolor is blonde ;)
Hope this doesnt discourage you too much after reading this confession.

Best regards
Dan

Hard Drive Installation


Hi emceedrive, I gather you are using ATA/PATA IDE hard disk drives? Each hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. Listed there are pin settings to set the IDE to Master or slave & Master with a slave. (We want to leave you're drive with windows on it alone). Not changing its jumper or not adding a jumper for now. We are not hooking up you're second drive just yet either.
Oh, please you're not an idiot either.
Unplug the power cable from the PC & open you're case.
Please open you're ASUS P4P800 SE manual to section 2.2.3 Motherboard layout. We want to connect the data cable to SEC_IDE1 first because once PRI_IDE1 is connected you will not be able to connect SEC_IDE1's data cable up to the DVD drive bay.
So grab a data cable for you DVD drive. It may have three connectors on it. Plug the connector that is the furthest from the other 2 connectors on the cable into the motherboard slot named SEC_IDE2. The data cable only goes in one way. Run the remainder of the cable up to the DVD player but do not connect it to the player yet. It is ok to fold the data cable which will help in routing it upwards to the DVD bay. Than connect the data cable to you're primary master IDE drive. (The one with windows already installed on it). The data cable should look just like the DVD data cable. Again you want to connect the furthest connector on the data cable into the MB slot named PRI_IDE1.
For now it’s best not to install the drive into the drive bay. Stand it up next to your case or lay it down flat with a sheet of paper under it. Connect the power cable to the drive. Plug in the PC's power cord & power up the PC & start pressing the delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads. You should see the Primary Hard disk drive listed at the main menu. Now go to the title Boot in the bios. Open boot order. The boot order of the devices should be as follows.
Boot device 1. (Floppy Disk Drive)
Boot device 2. (DVD Disk Drive) [None shown it’s not connected to the system].
Boot device 3. (Model number of your Primary IDE Master HDD).
Once this is set, save the bios & exit. The system should auto restart & windows should load. Let windows finish loading. Than shut down windows normally.
Unplug the PC's power cord. Since you had to remove a DVD drive you'll need to set the remaining DVD player's jumper on the drive to a Master & connect the data cable & power cord to it. (You may have to remove the DVD to see where the Master pins are located. It will be marked on the DVD player near the pins).
Now take you're new drive, do not insert it into the drive bay. Look at you're Master drive's white label. Set the jumper on the master drive first. It should be set as a Master drive with a slave.
Connect a jumper for this.
Go to you're new drive. Again look at its white label. Set this drive's jumper as a Slave drive. The Master drive should be connected to the end of the data cable. The new slave drive should be connected to the next in line connector.
Once all data cables & power cables are connected plug in the PC's power cord & boot the system, again pressing the delete key every two seconds until the boot main menu loads. Now you should see the Primary IDE Master drive & you're new Primary IDE Slave drive listed. You should also see the DVD as the Secondary IDE Master. Go to the title "Boot" again. Set the boot order as mentioned above. Save & exit the bios. Windows should load as it did before. Once windows has finished loading open windows Explorer & see if you're new slave drive is listed.
Shut down the system & unplug the power cord. Unplug the slave drive & mount it into its drive bay. Take a black marker & mark the side of the drive as slave. Disconnect the Master drive & connect it into its drive bay. Reconnect the data cables & power cables. Check all connectors before closing the case up. Re-connect the PC's power cord & boot the system. Everything should be fine. If you have a problem getting the data cable connected to the slave drive because its closer to the DVD drive as opposed to the Primary IDE Master drive you can make the slave drive a Secondary IDE Master (Change its jumper setting according to the drive’s label for Master with a slave) & connect the DVD player as a Secondary IDE Slave. (Change its jumper to slave). Change the Primary IDE Master drive’s jumper as a Master with no slave, single drive. That all.

Good luck emceedrive!
Take your time. Any troubles please post here.
You should be fine though.
