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.

Fitting an external PCI graphics card ... issues.


Go into the device manager find the card you do not want to use then disable it do not delete it. Restart the computer making sure that your display is plugged in you want to use and it should show up. The way your doing it is allowing both monitors to or both drivers are active. John

When switching on PC it does not boot up fully


Hi Craig

From what you are descrbing one of the background services is preventing start up from completing

Please try the following

1) Switch on PC
2) Continuoulsy press the F8 key until a start menu is presented, choose safe mode from this menu
3) Once safe mode has loaded up go to Start>Programs>Systems Tools>System Restore
4) From the system restore menu choose 'restore my computer to a earlier time'
5) From the calendar presented choose a date in bold when this fault wasnt happening and then click on next and follow the screen through
6) Let the system restore complete and it will automatically reboot and take you back to the mains windows screen
7) This should hopefully let the hung service be able to run

I hope this has been useful

Boot hung up


The NIC is fine, however it hangs because it is searching the network for boot information. This NIC's boot timeout is a lot longer than most.

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
