Question about EliteGroup ECS 945GCT-M/1333 Motherboard - v3.0, Intel 945GC, Socket 775, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express

1 Answer

New system - unsure if chirp sounds indicate system is live - also no video

Setting up new system with this board - not sure if 'beeps' are happening - only hear quiet chirp sounds - tried without memory/video card/disk - tried resetting CMOS - tried starting board outside case. No video

Does this board make only a 'chirp'? It seemed to run POST faster without memory plugged in so we think it's the right sound. But no video signal.

    No BIOS prompt is presented to the monitor when power is turned on. To test the M/B only power (Thermaltake 430W - 24 pin ATX and 4 pin), CPU (Intel Core 2 with fan) and RAM are installed. We will add the other system components after the base system works. Looks like something basic is wrong.

    Power and reset switches work as the system responds to both switches. The LCD monitor never receives a signal from the motherboard yet works fine on another system.

D845GVAD2 no bios screen no beep no boot


Hello here is the intel homepage:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+845+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D845GVAD2

Try to renew the power supply, with one you know is working.
I think that`s the problem.

The problem could ofcourse also be the mainboard itselves failing.
There is not much to do about that, other than renew the mainboard or buy a new pc.

Good luck

New motherboard GA-p67x-ud3-b3 no video on boot


  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

No video with or without a new video card on an asrock p4i65gv motherboard


So you can no onboard video when using the onboard connection right? and no video using an external video card also right? In this case, the promblem lay with the motherboard/ram/cpu and not with your video card. Try resetting the bios via taking out your cmos battery or shorting the cmos pin to see if a miracle would happen and the system would post. If not and if you have another board with compatible hardware, then you can try testing out the cpu, the rams. If you hear beeps when starting up the system, try to take note of it and look up on the internet via what bios make it is, and decode the beep error for what is wrong. If you don't her any beep, the other way only to know what is wrong is having another compatible board to test your cpu/ram, or make sure the ram and cpu you are using is supported by the asrock motherboard. If you do have another board to test your cpu/ram and even the video card, and they work, then your motherboard is scrap and needs to be replaced.

Soyo k7v dragon plus motherboard continuous


Hi Jopav1,

At the age of *********** board, I would recommend physically looking at the board, in particular, the large upright capacitors. If the tops are bulging, or have anything leaking out of them, send the board to a recycler, and look for an exact replacement on the used market, or replace with new. I just bought the same board you have today for $25, with AMD 1800 CPU.

At 10 years of age, the battery is probably past due for replacement too. It is a standard CR2032 3Volt battery. If you replace it quickly, you may not loose your BIOS settings.

If you have a volt meter, you can check your power supply voltages. Again, your manual will show what voltages to expect at each power connector pin. A range of +/- .05V is generally allowable on all sources.

Also try unplugging all boards and powering it up. The beep should change to a sequence of 2-1-3-1 beeps, indicating that it's not able to see the video card. If you still only get a repeated long beep, It's possible that the CPU itself may have died. These are also available very cheap at this point. The fact that you are getting a cycling beep indicates to me that the CPU is OK though.

I looked up beep patterns and did not find anything for one long repeating beep for the Phoenix BIOS on your board. There is no mention of them in the Soyo manual either.

Last resort is resetting your BIOS settings to "First Birthday", and try again. This will require you to re-set any manual settings you had set previously (probably 10 years ago). This is done by moving the jumper located between the green LED, and the battery, to the two pins nearest the LED, for a second, and then back to the position nearest the battery.

Good luck

Soyo KT400L-2AA5 Dragon Lite Motherboard - Lost Bios?


Kinda sounds like a short, have you made sure youre motherboard is screwed in with ground case screws? Ive done this one by mistake and got these same errors, also a fried board after a while. You also need ram in it as well before it will give a display, also if you have a second video car dinstalled you may have the monitor in the wrong video card slot, common mistake. If your bios is hosed then you will need to by a new board if you dont wanna solder a new bios chip to the board

Computer on, but no video output


sounds more like your motherboard,

unplug everything so all you have is ram (1 piece), cpu + harddrive(essential parts) no sound card, use on board graphics if you have it and if no luck then more likely the motherboard. Ihad a works machine go down before christmas with the same symptons and the problem was the motherboard

hope this helps

System wouldn't Boot


If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first: http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
