Question about ECS 945P-A (V3.0) Motherboard

4 Answers

Everything works, but no display

I just bought all of my components for this new computer. I'm using an ECS 945P-A Ver 1.1. Everything is connected and set, but whenever I turn on my computer, there is not display. Is this the motherboard or power supply? Thank you for your time.

    No beeps whatsoever. I'm thinking it's my memory or my power supply. I'm using Crucial 2 GB of RAM (2x1GB sticks) and a 550 watt power supply. 

    Also, my optical drive isn't working either. No lights or anything. All my fans are running, but no beep when it is turned on and no display.

    I have no video from the MOBO...pulled everything mem, ram, hd's and still nothing from the video

    Is this possibly a bad board? or is there an easy fix?

    try removing the memory and all non-essentials to barebone it then try again. if any good change noticed, the start adding one thing at a time until a bad change happens.

    Hi Mostrivu - Do you get any beeps? ( Is your pc's internal speaker hooked up?) Is the memory seated correctly, fully and did the clips click in place? Do the drives spinup, any lights come on?

Try to check the RAM and Graphic card...Is it really plug in or not...

Posted on Sep 05, 2008


I have pretty much the same problem. i had 4g of ram and a nvidia video card. i moved my computer to another room with a new monitor, and the monitor did not recognize a signal. i then reset and noticed my hard drives did not try to read, nor did my usb ports activate. my cd rom drive did boot up though, but that might only be because the power came on...which tells me the power supply isn't the problem. sounds like i'm going to need another 50 dollar motherboard... oh and i also have the 945 ver 1.1 same as yours.

Try a different stick of RAM. Like a smaller amount. try 512MB and see what happens. if 512 works, try the 1 of the 1GB sticks so you can still have atleast have 1GB.

My graphics card is not being recognized. Im using a ECS 945P-A Ver: 3.0 motherboard which has no on board video output. im using a Zotac Technology GEforce 7300 GT graphics card too. Do I need a powe

I don't believe that graphic cards of that level need PCI-EX power directly from the power supply (using a power supply cable with a PCI-EX connector). This is a good thing, but that's because this is a low-level card--one that likely needs nVidia legacy drivers: It's likely that active driver support has ended. (The same is true for legacy AMD/ATi cards--and other more ancient cards, as well. ((PCI or AGP) Sabre, 3DFX, etc.)

If you're using the VGA port--perhaps the card's DVI port is needed for initial install, instead--or vice-versa. (You'd need an adapter or different cord to run to a VGA monitor or TV's VGA port .)

Rarely, two VGA ports might exist on a card, instead. In any case, the port needed likely isn't the one connected (with a ribbon cable) to the PCB on the video card. (Once you get a workable video card driver installed, then you should be able to use either port.) Try all usable ports before finding another possible solution....

No display when starting after installing in new machine. I bought TWO ECS MCP61M-M3 motherboards for my kids for Christmas and have the same problem with BOTH. This is in a completely new computer...

you sound like youre familiar with computer. but have you checked your ram? back in the day there used be jumpers. i dont believe this newer model would have anything like that but doesnt hurt to check. also are the power supplies compatible (enough juice)? usually when i try and narrow down an issue i unplug everything cdrom, video card, one stick of ram at a time, etc.. i know this isnt a solution but hopefully it helps you to troubleshoot.
