My only suggestion is that you may be drawing too much power:

can you try disconnecting CD-ROM drives, etc, and then powering the computer up again?

is the computer sharing a power strip with a printer or anything else that might draw large amounts of power?

how many watts is the chassis power supply rated for?

I have changed the motherboard from Intel to Gigabyte(GA-G32M ES2L) since then the problem of my pc freezing while playing games started. My configuration is Processor:Pentium D...


1) Make sure that your Power Source is giving enough energy to the new Mother Board and make sure it's compatible.
2) Make sure that the new Mother Board is compatible with all of your current hardware, you can check this in the webpage from the Mother Board Company.
3) Check the voltage requirements for the Mother Board, check the BUS speed of the Mother Board and compatibility with the transfer speed of each of your current hardware.
4) It's never recommended yo change only a Mother Board since usually there's going to be problems with the rest of the hardware if it wasn't changed, if the problem persists, you'll have to buy new hardware that is compatible with your new Mother Board.
5) If you know how a BIOS works and how to configure one, you could also check the configuration in the BIOS, not sure it will work but it's worth a try if you know what you're doing.

DOWNLOAD FREE DRIVERS FOR MY GIGABYTE MOTHERBOARD : GA-81865GNE-775-RH


Drivers?

Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

No video on new Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 motherboard


There are a couple things that you need to look at. The first is your power supply. I've had computers seeming to run fine with no video. Turned out to be bad power supplies.
Does your video card require a power connection? Many high-end video cards need an external power connection. If the card has a power connection, use it.
Have you gone in and checked the cmos settings? What does it say (if anything) for the default video?
Now remove all connections to drives (hard drive and CD and try for video. Try it.
Next, if possible, swap out memory.
After you've tried everything (including maybe burning incense), time to try a new motherboard.

Motherboard will not start


It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.

GA-81945P-G-RH does a memory test on every boot but i can not ski


Since the link I posted addressed the possible problem to be one of your peripherals, I am posting this as a solution that you may consider rating it as a Fixya. (It will also remove it from my Work Queue listing.)

For the record I had posted the link below from Gigabyte:

Long Boot Time FAQ

Glad it worked out for you and thanks for using Fixya.

Not turning on


You have no signal going to the monitor because your system is not passing the POST (power on self test). This particular board only supports DDR2 533, 667 won't work according to http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2471
