Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Amature in distress!! trying to put PC together


I think I have everything plugged in correct places, with help from fellow gamers in Belgium and Chile and my brother here in Aus, and I have looked at all sorts of "help" things on the internet.

When I switch on, ther is power to the fans, but the MB won't boot. I unplugged anything extra ( which means DvC and Harddrive), still no joy. Afraid i might have a dud MB.

Can't find anything useful that gives clear pictures so I can double check everything for THIS motherboard.

    MotherBoard AMD AM2 S940 Gigabyte GA-M52S-S3P V2.0

    I backed out of submitting this - didn't realise it had still gone thru - lol! I got frustrated when I pasted the model and found it was considered invalid!

    Anyway - there it is. I strongly suspect I need my son's friend's younger brother to solve the problesm - 13year old whizzkid already running a business!

    This irks me. I like being self-sufficient. However, it's all a learning curve.

    thank you for responding. All thoughts are welcome.

No one can help you if you do not list the motherboard model number & or any version number. A tech will download the manual for the correct Gigabyte board & go from there.

I have the ASUS PTGD1-LA Motherboard, anyways, i recently took out all the components inclucing the motherboard, to look at the bottom side looking for the id number..Anyways, I put everything back...

Hi there , THis sounds like a CPU issue...Make sure you correctly put the CPU fan , and heatsink back on .... otherwise your CPU will overheat and cause your PC to turn off , so that it wont damage your CPU.Try making sure those are correct.

My computer just won't restart--I thought the switch had failed, so I just put the wires together for the momentary start button function, but no go. I can't think what else to check--I already put a new...

have you tried clearing the cmos memory? but put the jumper back to the correct position and the battery is not dead, then i would dissconnect everything so it would be left with psu plugged in to the m/board, cpu/fan,pwr switch nothing else except a speaker unless it has one built-in, you should hear some beeping from the speaker when you turn-on if not it`s dead R.I.P.

Computer won't boot up

Make sure that your power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. The LED you see lit may be the stand-by power indicator saying it has power and is waiting for the signal from the power switch.
