Intel D945GCNL has no display though ram, hard disk,power supply, processor is fine


Okay.

Provided you have checked out the simple stuff; monitor, AND monitor cable, suggestion would be to install a graphics card, and connect the monitor to it.

You won't have THE drivers for the graphics card installed yet, as you have no display, but you should get a display you can see well enough, to install the drivers.

I do need to ask a few questions before this is done, however.

1) Do you know the Power Supply is good?
Your LED lights may light, fans may spin, and it may sound like the harddrive is spinning, but the Processor may not be on.

Why?

A) IF, all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

{ The Intel D945GCNL mobo has an LGA 775 processor socket.
Front Side Bus support is 800MegaHertz.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 945GC (Part number 82945GC)
Can use up to an Intel Core2 Duo processor, with a 800MHz FSB.
These processors can use up to 65 Watts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

I'll go with the chipset info, and not the stated 1066MHz support,

http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/Intel-Essential-D945GCNL-Desktop-Motherboard-Intel-945GC-Express-Ch-Refurbished/6113423/product.html

Stated facts from Intel,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945gcnl/sb/CS-026727.htm }

2) How do you know the;
A) Processor
B) Harddrive
C) Ram Memory
D) Power Supply
,is fine?

Connected them/it to another working motherboard? Won't work with the harddrive, unless Windows Activation screen comes up, and then the harddrive will be for THAT motherboard, and not the original one.

Post back in a Comment.

When i start up my dimension 3100 dell desktop instead of a green light i get a flashing amber light. people say it is the power supply but the light wouldnt even come on if it was. can you please help me?


No, the light WOULD come on if it was a Power Supply problem.

1) If ALL of the LED lights on your computer were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer?
An Intel Pentium 4.

Intel Pentium 4 model 640.
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 3.2GigaHertz. (3.2GHz)
Fits in a Socket 775 processor socket. (Also know as Socket T)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_2M_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Can use up to 84 Watts.


You have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1 out 50 times I turn on my Dell Dimension E520 there is no signal to the monitor. I have tried to install a new PCI express card instead of using the integrated graphics but the result was the same e.i no...


The problem is the Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

You've taken the right steps with your diagnosis.

1) Start with the monitor cable. If removable use a known to be good monitor cable.
Checks okay, go onto the graphics 'engine' of the computer.

If the monitor cable is not removable, use another monitor, and cable for a test.

2) If you are presently using Integrated Graphics the next step in diagnosing is to install a graphics card.
See if the problem is the Integrated Graphics 'engine'.

[ Just to add:
Intel GM X3100 is the graphics 'engine'. It is integrated into the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset.

Intel G965 chipset is the motherboard chipset. The Intel ID number on the Northbridge chip is 82G965.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8, or ICH8R, or ICH8-DH,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_Chipsets

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergrated_Circuit }


The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI Express are High-speed graphics.

A graphics card in a PCI slot is not High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
PCI and Integrated Graphics being two of the slower capabilities.
SATA, IDE, USB, and Ethernet, are also some of the slower capabilities of a computer,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another name used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

3) Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

The Power Supply has enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) ALL the LED lights on at once will consume less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan consumes 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can consume (Maximum) 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

The Dell Dimension E521 desktop computer's motherboard, has an LGA 775 processor socket.
(Processor has the socket holes, processor socket has the pins)

The Intel processors that can be used in this processor socket, can be an Intel Pentium 4, (Version that uses an LGA 775 processor socket), Intel Pentium D, or Intel Core2 Duo, AND Intel Core 2 Quad, with a maximum FSB of 1066MHz. (If the BIOS version will support Intel Core2 Quad processors)
{Front Side Bus of 1066Megahertz}

Wattage consumption can be as much as 105 Watts.

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible Power Supply available, to use as a test unit?

{Compatible being that the Power Supply case fits, (ATX), has the right amount of power cables, and the correct power cables. (Needs to have a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, for one)

Perhaps there is an unused computer that has a Power Supply you can borrow.
Maybe someone has upgraded to a better computer, and has an unused one with a compatible power supply for a test unit.

Gateway 550GR Still Not Booting Up


Have you tried a different power-supply?
A power-supply must emit a few different voltages; if it fails to output one of those voltages, the fans still may spin, and the CD-drive-tray may still open, but the motherboard may not be getting the correct voltages.

Disconnect the AC power, and then open the case. Look at the capacitors (those black/silver cylinders with an X in their silver-coloured top).
Any capacitor that is bulging, i.e., does NOT have a perfectly-flat top, is leaking. Any capacitor that seems to have rusty-brown "sand" on top also is leaking. Either way, it's time to replace the motherboard.

Computer will not boot to windows. the screen displays phoenix - awardbios v6.oopg, an energy star ally copyright(c) 1984-2004, phoenix tehcnologies, ltd p4m800-m7 (pm48m309 bf) main processor: intel(r)...


The light you're referring to is the HDD Activity Lamp.
(HarDDrive)

It blinks green when it's operating, and orange for inactivity, or not operating.

You're getting to the BIOS Post screen, but BIOS is handing over the computer to the Operating System.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

When you press the Power On button;

1) A temporary connection is made from the motherboard to the power supply. A 5 volt circuit is made. This turns the power supply on. (Soft Power On)

2) The BIOS chipset, is the first chipset to receive power. (Chipset is a slang term for IC. Integrated Circuit)

The BIOS program, ( 64MB in size), looks to see what all devices are connected.
(Harddrive, optical drives, mouse, keyboard, etc.)

3) Then BIOS does a Ram Memory count,

4) Turns the Processor on,

5) Then hands the computer over to the Operating System.

It looks like BIOS has recognized your Intel Pentium 4 processor, (2.66GHz frequency rate, 533MHz FSB), but hasn't turned the processor on.

[Let me stop,and explain something real quick.
Where you see -
Intel (r) Pentium (r) 4 cpu 2.66ghz (133x20.0)

The r stands for Registered. Intel and Pentium are registered trademarks of Intel Corporation.

It's a Pentium 4 model.

2.66GigaHertz is the Frequency Rate. Slang term for frequency rate is 'Speed'.
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

At maximum capacity, your Pentium 4 processor can operate, at a 2.66 Billion Cycles per Second frequency rate.

133 stands for 133Mhz. 133 MegaHertz.
Mega = Approximately 1 Million

This is the Clock Rate. Intel processors are 'Quad-Pumped', so the FSB is actually 533MHz.
(FSB = Front Side Bus)

The 20.0 is the multiplier.
20 times 133Mhz = 2600 Mhz,
or 2.66GHz ]

Now, why is the processor not turning on?

Suspect the Power Supply.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1.ALL the lights for your computer use less than 1 Watt.
2.EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3.A typical processor uses 55 to 125 Watts!

(The Processor hasn't been turned on, so nothing else is receiving power yet)

This is the basic specifications for your processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Scroll down the left column of the list.
Where you see Pentium 4 505, Pentium 4 505J, and Pentium 4 506. Your processor is one of these three.

Scroll across. You will see 2667 MHz. 2667Mhz is rounded off to 2660 MHz, or 2.66GHz.

You will see 533M/T as you scroll across.
M/T stands for MegaTransfers. A more accurate description of FSB. Front Side Bus.

Scroll further across. You will see 20x. This is the Multiplier. (Look up)

Lastly scroll across a little further. You will see 84W.
This stands for 84 Watts.
Your processor operating at maximum load, uses 84 watts.

Why do I suspect the power supply?
Because it's the number 1 thing to fail in a computer.

Electrolytic Capacitors fail inside, or are failing.
They have Electrolytic Paste inside them.
The paste has developed a gas, (Hydrogen gas), and has popped seals for the capacitor's case.

This results in Electrolytic Paste slowly oozing out of the capacitor, and resulting in the capacitor failing, or has failed.

Electrolytic Capacitors are used as Filters in a computer power supply. They filter the incoming AC electricity from your house, and the outgoing DC electricity made from the power supply.

When capacitors are failing, or have failed, they create a bad power rail.

There are three main power rails in a computer power supply.
1) The 3.3 Volt power rail
2) The 5 Volt power rail
3) The 12 Volt power rail.

With a weak power rail due to failing capacitors, or a bad power rail due to failed capacitors, you do not have enough power to turn the processor on.

Solution?

Use a known, good, compatible power supply for a test. If the power supply is found to be bad, replace it.

Intel D945GCLF - No post, No video Signal


Sounds like your wiring isnt right on the on off power. Make sure your power supply can handle this MotherboardAdapter cables are available that allow the incorrect use of older ATX or SFX power supplies in place of an ATX12V or SFX12V power supply. Intel does not recommend the use of these cables. These cables convert a standard 1x4 peripheral connector to the ATX12V 2x2 connector. An ATX12V or SFX12V with the 2x2 connector is required for all Pentium® 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Boards. Using the 1x4 converter cables can lead to system component or power supply damage and/or boot failures. The ATX12V and SFX12V power supply design guides (http://www.formfactors.org/)* recommend a minimum of 8A at 12Volts to properly power any Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. Standard ATX and SFX power supplies typically provide approximately 5A of current, which is not capable of reliably powering the Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. And I think the motherboards going to look for a formatted hard drive wired to the motherboard It wont boot off that USB stick.

My computer won't start but power supply and Motherboard is okay


if i understand correctly you swapped the cpu to another computer and it did not work... you need to purchase or find another cpu that is compatable with your motherboard.
