Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

No power my son turned off the power stripe to my computer, when I turned it back on nothing. My husband which knows nothing about computers tried to fix it. A friend of his told him it was the power source so we went out and brought a new one and nothing happened. we thought it was the motherboard but a green light is lit. When we push in the power button nothing happens. he stared disconnecting things to take the motherboard out and now has no idea the order of three little plugs labeled power led (blue and white) power s/w (black and white) and hdd led ( red and white). Can you help me with these problems?

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem. The computer does not turn on at all but the green light on the MB is on. I also disconnected the three little plugs labeled power led (blue and white) power s/w (black and white) and hdd led (red and white) and I do not know how to reconnect them back. My motherboard is Intel type D845EPI / D845GVSR. Can somebody show me how to connect those three plugs? Thanks

    I've just put together a Phenom Quad system with a ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe Series MB and 2G 1066RAM and powered up the system with the green MB power light showing and..... nothing...dead. At first I thought it could have been the new 1200W PSU due to problems with the CPU or RAM usual you get to the post at least. So I started the process of elimination by testing with a new working 650W PSU....nothing. To confirm I tried the 1200W with another system and it goes well. Then I tired a working power switch and still....nothing. Furthermore, I connected and reconnected to ensure all OK and have deducted it must be the MB. Does the symptoms sound like this or would you suggest I look at something else?

,Some months ago my computer stop lighting up, turning on and nothing is going on in the system, i think it is the fuse that blow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

change the power supply if that doesnt fix it then your motherboard has blown, there are no fuses in the power supply, you have probably blown diodes inside it. You have tried another power lead, that you know is working?

My computer will not start.

No way to tell for sure, but the "messed up image with stripes" suggests a video component. Unfortunately most laptop components are not replaceable, which means you probably need a new laptop. Save your hard drive, the data on it is still there and you will be able to either copy the files you need or just connect it to your next computer.

D102GGC2 will not do anything!

Hi there. Have you tried running the system as a barebone?

What I mean by this:

Disconnect everything from the mobo, all memory sticks, cables, wires, and any PCI/AGP cards you may have.

If you have more than 1 memeory stick, only put 1 back in. Connect the power switch to the mobo.
Now connect the power supply to the board.
Connect the monitor to the On Board VGA port.

Now turn it on. Let me know what, (if anything), happens.

Power issues

Was one of the tips on the HP site to unplug your Video Card?
The power supply might be having trouble pumping enough power into the card.
After you take out the card and get it to POST, go into the BIOS and turn on the onboard graphics and see if you can get it back to the OS screen.
If that doesnt work post again and ill try to help you further.

P4vmm2 doesnt boot,Y?

Hi yansky, When you turn the computer on do you see or hear any of the following: -Does the power LED turn on and if so for how long? -When you turn you power on listen closely for any sounds like hard drives or fans starting up. -Does anything show on your monitor, if yes what exactly? -When turned on do you hear any beeping sounds from the computer? If you do listen for the pattern of long and short beeps and let us know what they are. If you see absolutely nothing you should try testing the socket the computer is plugged into. Fuses blow, power strips die cords develop shorts so unplug the computer and plug in a lamp to verify you?re getting power. If that doesn?t turn up anything let us know the answers to the questions above plus any other observations and we?ll try to help.
