Fixed it by replacing the memory with a different brand.

Crucial Ballistix didn't work, Corsair did.

I've got a new Gigabyte Ga-M68Mt-D3 mobo paired with a cooler master 460 watt power supple. Cpu is Amd phenom II 3.2 ghz with 4 gig of DDR3 ram. I powered up the supply attached to my ATX power supply...


Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:

pgh_pa_guy_1.jpg

The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.

Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:

New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.

When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

Area where CPU is placed is broken


it's hard to repair these, as some motherboards are multi-layered, and some of the circuitry in other layers may have been damaged.

X38a windows nt


You'll have to use Win2000 drivers that is the only thing close enough that the manufacturer supports. I would suggest Win98 drivers, but they do not exist. Here's the link, good luck.

Newly built system will not power up!


It seems like you have bad MOBO. I recently ordered all the stuff to build 2 new systems. Built the first one, no power, just like yours. Moved everything to the 2nd MOBO, everything worked. I did a RMA on the DOA MOBO. Got the new one and it fired right up. Sometimes you just get bad stuff.

Please don't forget to rate this solution.

Motherboard shorted


Unless you have about a $3000 soldering machine and lots of skills soldering, i would say just get a new mobo. the cost to fix it would be lots more than its worth

Post issue


I can't get Foxconn's website to pull up ATM, but I had this sort of issue once before, and felt completely stupid once I figured it out, and this is going to sound strange, but, remove your CPU fan and try to power up. If it does power up, then your CPU Fan is shorting out the system. If that doesn't fix it, then it is possible that your processor is not supported by the motherboard.

Hope this helps!
