Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

Why won't my computer boot?

I have bought an 'ordinary' Asus P5E3 motherboard and an Intel Q9450 Quad core processor. But there is no POST when we turn on the compuetr - that is: the monitor stays blank although all the fans turn and motherboard LED lights up. We have put 2GB of DDR3 Ocz 1333MHz memory in all configurations and-nothing! We tried the memory in a Gigabyte board and it's fine. Then we tried the processor in the Gigabyte board and it would not POST. The graphics card is a Gigabyte PCIe x16 but there are no signs of rejection. Is it possible that I need DDR3 Graphics card? or is the processor faulty?

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

Asus rampage 2 extreme no beeps on first boot, does not enter post, i.e nothing shows up on screen, with the 8 pin power connector in the motherboard the pc will boot then shutdown for 2 seconds and reboot...


1 - Test the memory in another pc; if it's at fault change it completely.
2 - That 8 pin connector is there to provide extra power to the processor sources - either one or more of them are fried = replace motherboard or the processor itself is gone =  test it in another pc and replace it if necessary.

No boot up / no post for new CPU (ECS G31R-M7) with Intel E5200


i have a ecs g31t-m with a pentium e5200 dual core. i bought the board from ebay and the bios needed to be flashed before it would reconize the processor. after flashing the bios i still had the same problem. i found that in the user manual there is a list of "qualified" ram. before looking at this list i tried some ram that was not on the list and it wouldn't boot. after changing the ram to one that was on the list it finally booted up. however, after getting it to boot and reloading win xp, i cant get any drivers to load for the onboard equipment. so now i'm stuck. i hope this helps and if someone can give me direction on the drivers i'd be in good shape.
