Question about Intel D945GNT Motherboard

1 Answer

Hook-Up EZ-Swap2 removable hard drive rack to D945GNT MB

Reading the directions that came with the EZ-Swap2 removable hard drive rack it says - along with other instructions - "Connect the red and white HDD Access/Activity signal cable to the HDD signal pins on your system board."
Is this instruction saying to look for an extra set of pins somewhere on the board or will the set presently used by the internal HD be used by the removable rack activity indicator?  
Maybe it's necessary to splice the wires so both can use the connector or maybe just not have the internal drive indicator function.
Thanks in advance, Tommy

Will the Intel D945GNT motherboard run Windows 64 bit OS, and will I need to change the RAM. At present I have Two Transcend 512 MB DDR2 Mhz modules on it. Please advise. Thanks.

Trying to run W7 64 bit with only 1gb of ram will make the system really slow. I suggest you purchase 4gb of PC5300 (667mhz) of ram which will cost about £30. Your system will then fly compared to what it is doing now.

I have an Intel 945GNT Motherboard along with a Pentium D processor running at 3.4GHz and 3 sticks of 1GB RAM at 533MHz. I have given it to one of my engineers for repairs and he said that the motherboard...

The D945GNT appears to have been discontinued - however, processors are always made to fit a certain standard socket type. In this case, you will be looking for a motherboard that uses socket LGA775 and has a FSB (Front-Side Bus) speed of 533 Mhz in order to use the same processor and RAM.

These motherboards are still available through the internet, although they are getting older and may be harder to find, but any one of them would work properly. My recommendation would be to read as many reviews as possible before deciding on a certain one.

Motherboards that support 533MHz RAM seem to be harder to find these days, but boards with 800 MHz FSB speeds are pretty common, so you might have to buy new RAM sticks to go along with the new motherboard. The good thing is, RAM isn't all that expensive these days. I would advise checking well-known internet retailers to see if you can find a board that suits you.

Hope this is helpful!

The onboard video chip is dying. Since it's a part of the chipset, it might be also dying. If you're lucky all you need to do is to add a separate video card, disable the onboard video and your problem will go away.
