I recommend that you formatt your HDD to a FAT32 system probably by using another pc then you should also ensure that your bios is setup for the appropriate operating system. maybe just download the appropriate bios files off the gigabyte web site.

    It sounds like you have a CPU or a Motherboard problem. these are the only two things that causes your monitor to not display anything during startup first install the RAM and then replace the CPU and see if you power it up anything dispplays if nothing then the problem lies on the motherboard or graphics card if you have one installed

I have GA-6BXC motherboard, came with a Pentium II 400 mhz, I upgreded it to a P3 550 mhz,lastest Bios F3 is loaded, ugraded the memory to Kingston ,from there website. No when I turn on the computer I get...


A couple questions:

1) I assume you have the manual. 6BXC Manual

2) Just double checking...the BLACK boxes marked in the manual for the switches are the white switch "levers" for lack of a better term. So switch 1 should have all 4 levers up. (Toward the CPU.) Switch 2 should have the left-most lever down and the other 3 up. Are those correct?

3) The RAM modules have a max of 256MB in each slot. Is that good? (Try with only one module at a time.)

4) Does JP10 have the jumper on pins 2 and 3? (Page 16)

5) Is the battery good?

If all that is good, clear the CMOS. See page 17. Take the jumper from pins 2 and 3 and place it on pins 1 and 2 for about 15 to 30 seconds. Then place it back on pins 2 and 3. Try to reboot.

Also, what kind of graphics card are you using?

Awaiting your response.

try to remove and place to another slot your bios like the jumper near the battery and put it back again. see what happens next. see also if the wires from the switch of your cpu is correctly connected to the motherboard.

Lan card

Use a different PCI slot and reinstall the drivers for your LAN card. If this does not fix the problem there may be a compatibility issue between the network card and some other software (eg. irq conflict etc.), or the LAn card may be slightly faulty and have problems on some motherboard.
In this case you can try troubleshooting the problem.
If you cannot find out the problem at a glance, checking in device properties, you may be forced to reinstall Windows. In this case I suggest to just replace the part. The Ethernet (LAN) pci card is quite an inexpensive part, and you can still use this one on a different computer.
