Question about Intel D946GZIS Motherboard

1 Answer

Hung PC Hello, I have recently noticed that my pC stops booting until it reches a stage where it displays some kind of sequence at the bootm right hand part of the screen. It stops at EB (wonder what it means). However it starts only after repeated attempts ( 10 or 15). Is my mother board or some part of it is dying.

    Thanx for the guide and links.

    Been thru the manual

    Though it didnot help me much but it did give me some info on the codes EB. EB is mentioned at two places in the manual.



    port 80h post codes - EB means - calling DXE drivers- Legacy option ROMs.



    port 80h post sequence - EB means - calling Video BIOS.



    I donot understand the meaning of the above.



    All I know that a series of codes appear at the bottom right hand side of the screen when my PC boots. At times it gets stuck on EB (whatever that means).



    Can u help me in interpreting these codes, I am sure they must be meaning something.



    I have also noted that the fans in the computer also donot start when this happens.



    thanks in anticipation

    I have EXACTLY the same problem. At first i thought it was my Primary HDD which coincidentally had a problem and got him replaced. But the problem still exists!

    can you write down the series of codes that appear at the bottom right hand side of the screen when your pc boots & post them here?

    Is this a fresh/new build? Have you flashed your bios. Can you tell me what was the last thing you either installed before this error started?

    If I know what transpired before there was trouble & the series of code listed I can search my data base. If the screen goes by too fast try pressing the pause key on the keyboard to hault the screen.

Eugene, how are you? Not a problem, firstly have you replaced the motherboard CMOS battery? If you have the next step is to boot into the BIOS, most of the time it will mean pressing the delete key, or F8,F10, F12 and or ESC upon turning on your syst. It all depends on what kind of pc you have.

Once you are in the BIOS setup screens go through each one and just remember to save and reboot your syst. This should set you straight. ;)

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!
Mike

UPDATING BIOS FOR ASROCK M266 A MAINBOARD


In order to update your Bios, you need to have a bootable diskette.
First make sure your 1st boot sequence is Floppy Disc. Place a bootable floppy, if you don't have one just do it by using unused floppy. Right click on 31/2 Floppy (A:), choose Format, then tick the box "Create an MS-DOS Startup Disk". Once finished use this disk to boot your system. After the system completed the boot process, replace your boot disk with your upgrade disk. Type the require command to update your bios.
Good Luck

PC won't boot


Is the case speaker connected to the motherboard?
If it is, do you get any beep sequence? If there is no display, the power speaker output an audible beeps sequence. For example, 3 short beeps mean a problem with memory.

Keep posting here to zoom in on the solution.

Help nothing on display


Are you able to press F8 and try safe mode? Did anything change as far as video when it stopped working? Do you have another monitor to try? A bootable CD is an excellent idea. You may need to go into the BIOS and change the boot order but usually putting a bootable disk in the drive will make it boot off the CD. Look around the BIOS settings and make sure everything looks ok there too. Probably not a solution, just things to try.

Odd boot


A "hung" system usually tells you that you have registry problems and/or buggy drivers and can include a virus (It can also include a corrupt boot sector). Well, there's a easy fix for this and a really difficult fix for this...And then there's the reinstallation of Windows. Ok, the easy fix is to goto: Start -> Programs -> System Tools -> System Restore Run the restore program back to the time where you were having no problems. Voila! If it is a virus, this will not get rid of it as some of the viruses make their way into the system restore. Then there's the difficult way to do it which is kinda like the installation of Windows but instead you hit "repair" (This is known as the Recovery Console and it's in DOS just to warn you...) Then you can type the following at the dos prompt: fixmbr - Fixes corrupt master boot record fixboot - Fixes corrupt boot sector bootcfg /rebuild - Fixes corrupt or missing boot.ini
