Some help with Asrock P4i45GV motherboard

Good day Experts...

I have a Asrock P4i45GV motherboard that wont display with a 2.0 ghz intel celeron processor. when i change it with a 2.4 ghz it runs normally. When i insert the 2.0 ghz in another motherboard with same socket 478 of what i have, it runs normally. My question is: why does the processor which is the original one won't run normally in my board but would run in another motherboard...

    I replace it with a intel celeron 2.4 ghz which is the one that run normaly. The original processor of the motherboard that is intel celeron 2.0 ghz wont run in my motherboard but would run when you insert it with another mother board.

    what i got confuse of is that, the intel celeron 2.0 runs normally before, infact i was still able to use it.

    the 2.4 ghz is only a testing so that i could verify if the motherboard is the one has the problem or the cpu itself...what i found out is that the processor which is the original one (2.0 ghz) processor would run in other motherboard but not in my motherboard. When try it with 2.4 ghz it runs normally. What i got confused with is that, why does it run normally before with its original intel celeron 2.0 ghz processor but it didn't, but would would run in other motherboard. I have socket PGA478 slot and the other motherboard that would run my processor is mPGA478b.

Hi friend,
replace RAM OR clean the ram .or remove all motherboard connections .take out from the cabinet just connect the monitor cable and check the display.if it does not come refer beep code and solve the problem by checking hardware component.

If you were using the cpu before and works right then it still has a problem with the board setting. if you did not make any changes in the bios setting then it is really strange why it will run normal with another same type of board and not with yours when it is the original CPU. anyway, if you know how to reset your bios/cmos and you know how to put back to the right setting then i would suggest that you reset the whole system. remove the hardisk power cable and put it back only when you are ok with the CPU.

Compatibility issue only. the 2.4 you replace is it celeron? or P4?. Bus speed check also. if you are using WIN XP OS, you go to control panel, systems, then general check what is the processor type. it will still show 2.0G but running at lower speed. That would confirm incompatible cpu with your board.

    your problem seems to be strange, opposite result. you shud be having problem actually on the 2.4G and the original 2.0 shud be normal in the 1st place it is the original. you did not chnge any setting in *********** board.

    what i can only see is possibly the bus speed of the 2.0 does not match the board. Thats why i said in my prev comment to check when you are in win xp, controlpanel, systems, see the general tab below what does it show on the CPU type, the operating speed that is along wid the ram capacity.

    it should show you the PCU still 2.0G but the speed it is running is lower as you saw in your POST. in that case you have incompatibility. unless...unless maybe your 2.0G is defective, still running but does not process at 2.0G.

    when you replaced the CPU to 2.4 was it just upgrading or your are experiencing this problem already?

What would be the best compatible 512 MB GPU(with shader 3 or 4) working with P4I45GV 3.00 /P4 2.4 GHZ/1 Gb ram ?

Any of them Shubham.

If we are to discern by a few known statements;

1) It is believed in some 'geek communities', that using the same manufacturer of motherboard chipset, and graphics chipset; to be a good thing.

For example an AMD motherboard chipset 'plays well' with an AMD ATI graphics chipset;

Nvidia motherboard chipset 'plays well' with Nvidia graphics chipset.

Intel motherboard chipset with Intel wait,....... there is no Intel graphics chipset, unless it is -> Integrated Graphics.
[ Intel GMA ]

(Integrated Graphics is also said as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD)

2) DOES NOT MATTER what graphics memory type is used.

Motherboard can use DDR Sdram ram memory, and graphics card can use GDDR5.

Because the graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.

Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU; is the Processor,

Graphics memory is the ram memory.

Operates independent of the system resources.
Processor, and Ram Memory.

The graphics expansion slot on the P4I45GV (P4 i 45GV), is an AGP slot.
Accelerated Graphics Port,

It will use an AGP 4X, or AGP 8X graphics card.
Use an AGP 8X.


1) ALWAYS follow Anti-Static Precautions.

2) INSTALL the software for the graphics card F-I-R-S-T,
(Drivers and 'control panel')

THEN unplug the computer from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions, and Physically plug the graphics card into the motherboard, and install.

3) L@@k at the system requirements (Minimum) for the graphics card.
Specifically the Power Supply requirements. You need a Power Supply with enough Wattage, to handle the graphics card.

[ Handles the graphics card, and -> Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and peripherals; Internal and External.
{Harddrive/s, optical drive/s; Internal
Mouse, Keyboard, external harddrive, etc; External ]

ASrock P4i45GV Motherboard

Hi sandesh8, did you know you can increase the memory size of the onboard AGP card above the 64MB? Page 26 in you're manual. If you install another AGP card into the opened AGP slot, please go to this site & only use the recomended AGP cards in the Asrock list. Click on this link:
This is one of very few video cards found on the list with 256MB of video memory.

Good Luck!

Cannot turn on motherboard

Either the power button itself is bad, or the mainboard is bad. You can test the power supply and mainboard by using a paperclip to short the green wire on the middle of the power connector that goes to the motherboard to the black wire next to it on the same connector. This will force the power supply on. If the mainboard still won't do anything, then it's dead, Jim.

Hope this helps!

No display on monitor

Can be a problem with any of the components.

Do the power supply, cpu fan and disks start to spin after power up?

Does the PC speaker sounds a sequence of beeps? Can you identify a pattern, like 3 short beeps indicates a memory problem.

Keep posting so we can zoom in on the problem.

Upgrading Processor

You can not put a dual core processor in there because the board will not support it. However, you are able to place any socket 478 pentium 4 processor in there. Let me know if this helps.
