Not booting up

Purchased this motherboard as a bundle with cpu already fitted. Once all connected i can only get to the first stage where it asks to start normally or in the last known best settings. nothing will boot it up but works perfectly once reconnected to my old board again from the same page. i am running XP pro with sp2. what am i missing, is there something i should be doing or have done?

If you are using the same HDD from your old PC then you will have to do a format/overlay install due to the boards being so different.
Best to use your old board if possible, backup all the data you want, then do a clean install with the new board/cpu combo.

The OS doesn't like all the changes that were made. To keep people from cloning hard drives and putting them in whatever machine they want, microsoft winxp recognizes even subtle changes, upgraded cpu, memory video cards etc.

  1. put the hard drive in the old machine
  2. run link
  3. Software
  4. click on Installed Program
  5. click on licenses
  6. .click on report
  7. quick report licenses html
  8. click on print
  9. select page 1
These are the key codes for your machine,
now put hard drive in new machine, boot with xp pro cd and choose repair option. re-enter key code when prompted and telephone Microsoft in activation wizard.

The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

Motherboard starts but no signal in the monitor


Hello here is the cpu list:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i45G/?cat=CPU

Other cpu`s than them on the list, does not fit the mainboard.
This will cause the mainboard not to boot up, when the cpu is wrong.
The (wrong) cpu will fit the socket, but it does not fit the cache size, fsb, and so on.

Look also in the manual:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i45G/?cat=Manual

The problem could also be the power supply failing, try to change that.

Did it boot up before you changed the cpu ???
Any beep codes ??

Look also at this page:

Good luck

Installed new motherboard, but system would not boot. What is the problem. Did not receive a manual with motherboard at time of purchase.


Hello Dch,

After replacing the mother board if the system is not booting up then check the power connections on the mother board. The wires of power, restart buttons are properly connected to the motherboard. Also check the thermal grease which is used between cpu fan and cpu. If the thermal grease gets dried then clean the grease and apply the 2 drops of new thermal grease and properly lock the cpu fan.

Novideo or keeboard


You need to do some trouble shooting. First you need to disconnect you hard drives, optical drives or any other unnecessary components. The only thing you should have connected is the 20 or 24 pin power connector for your motherboard and the 4pin cable to power your cpu. Then try booting the system, if you see your bios then you know that the problem is with the components you have disconnected.

Does your monitor show anything at initial power on and then go blank, if so try booting into Safe Mode...Right click on your screen, select Properties and reset your video settings

I already installed the software the hdd, video card, 2gb memory card but still mo reaction on the monitor. the power was there, the processor functioning well


If you are not getting the visual boot sequence on the screen (bios and video bios info display etc) you cannot be certain that the cpu is operating. I would unplug everything and plug them back in one at a time and boot the machine between each fitting. If it now boots, great but if it stops booting after you refit something (ram stick or drive cable etc) then that is the item which is preventing the system from booting. Also, just a reminder, make sure you have connected the ATX12volt connector on the mainboard and the 20 or 24 pin power connector correctly.

Wont boot


Check all connections. If you connect your pc to the mains supply and the fans run straight awayeven before turning on the computer switch ( and no beeps, no video). Well this could indicate a dead CPU. I have experienced this on 2 systems. I replaced the CPU and the motherboard and ram were OK .The CPU was totally dead and ended up in the bin!

No pwer to my system until I pull the 12Volt 4 pin power connection to the Motherboard


as you say,the motherboard or the cpu may be the problem, as you need to connect the 4 pin connector as this is the independent 12v power supply for the cpu and not the ZIF socket like older cpu's. You may be getting power to the board when the cpu is not connected, but when it comes to the cpu taking over because the bios has not been checked, nothing else will run, including drives. If you do not get as far as the bios showing on the screen there is a good chance that the cmos chip is damaged on the board normally either from new or because of the board being stressed from flexing when fitting components to the board which is easily done unless the motherboard is supported by something underneath when attaching parts. If the board is already fitted into the chassis of the pc, remove it and double check that it is not shorting on the chassis of your tower.
