5-year-old motherboard died this morning. Went and bought a new one and Celeron 440 LGA775 processor. Yanked my old board and made the switch. All went quite well.
I followed the jumper guide for the front panel header to the "T". No power, no leds. When I unplug the power cord from the back, I hear the speakers softly pop.
I have tried every possible configuration of jumpers and my front switch and reset buttons still don't work, no do the leds.
I really can't believe the problem is the power supply, since it has worked perfectly all day throughout my CMOS struggles until I gave up and declared the mobo dead. And the thing is less than 6 months old. My suspicion is that I'm horribly blond here.
I would deeply appreciate any thoughts from you resident geniuses...

Re: 945GZT-M-Jumper Woes, No Power
Hi Deborah, if you have checked and double checked the front panel header connectors (inserting the pin headers the opposite direction helps sometimes) then it does indeed sound like your PSU is faulty. You would really need to try a known working PSU to verify this and take it from there.
Please let us know once you have tried swapping the PSU.
If you have the components spare, you could also try the motherboard/ram/cpu in another system.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

2) The Intel D850GB motherboard only supports Single Core processors. Not Dual Core like a Pentium D. Must be an Intel single core processor, that fits in a Socket 423 processor socket.
Intel only made processors to fit the Socket 423 for about 2 years. Intel had a deal with Rambus, for memory to fit Intel's motherboards, for this period of time. The deal fell out, and Intel moved on.
The Intel D850GB motherboard Only uses RIMM memory modules, ('Stick/s') made by Rambus. (RIMM. Rambus Inline memory Module)
