Take out the graphics card to see if she will boot with the on board graphics. If not take out all but one stick of memeory to see if one stick is faulty try with them individually.

    Sounds good so far, so now you can set bios to boot from cd/dvd and get your os installed.

Just installed a new Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, 4 GB RAM (Corsair DDR3 1333), AMD Phenom II multi-core processor (X6 1055T), 750 W power supply, Maxtor 500 GB hard drive and a Blu Ray DVD Drive. ...


motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

Hi, A couple of possibilities/things to try: 1. After reset & remove battery, go to the CMOS/BIOS setup and load default configurations; 2. "...loading windows ... screen goes black..." are you installing a fresh clean Windows or are you using an image/recovery of your old Windows. If it's an image/recovery, it is possible and very likely that the OS is no longer recognizing the motherboard as the old motherboard because of the BIOS update. Perhaps you should try a clean fresh install. 3. try booting in to a simple bootable diskette/CD of FreeDos or Dos 6.2 or variants, just to check if the motherboard will finish POST and BOOT. Post back that we can figure out other possibilities or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

The motherboard starts up with fans spinning but monitor gets no signal and cant turn off motherboard


If your fans power up but you see no image, then your computer has failed its startup test.
Now you have to find out what the problem is.
Start by opening the case and disconnecting everything but the keyboard, CPU, memory, and video. Now try to start it. If you still have no signal, it might be your video card if the monitor shows a message telling you there is no signal. Memory could also be a problem.
If you get a message telling you there is no boot device, then turn the computer off (push in the switch for about 7 seconds) and connect the hard drive. Now try to boot. If it works, then suspect the CD drive.
If after doing all this you still get no signal no matter what you do, and if the video is part of the motherboard, you're probably looking at a new motherboard.

The cooling fan for the interior of the cpu case froze up and now the computer will not boot up. I replaced the fan but the computer will still not boot. I can see the lights on the front of the unit come...


It's the power supply, the cd drive door will open in all cases if it has power - 12 volts to be more precise. Simple test: take the cd unit and the power supply out of the case of the pc, connect them  and start the PSU (connect the green wire to a black one) - if the door opens now it means that there's a big short on the motherboard, if not the PSU is fried.

Add Memory In Compaq Deskpro 6000 P2 Shuttle PC?


No, it is in the actual box which contains the power button. You'll need to open that box and take a peek inside. You will see something similar (not exactly the same) to what is depicted in this picture. Now, in your particular instance one or two of the slots will be occupied by memory-sticks.

That is where your memory will be inserted to add extra RAM. Now we need to find out what type of memory you have right now, because we will need to match it. Download this utility and install it onto your computer. Afterward open up the area for system-memory (Or RAM) and determine what type of memory you have. Is it DDR, DDR2, or some other type? Once again, we will want to try to match the speed, type, and possibly even the brand to ensure the RAM will work with your system.

Once you have that information head online to this website. Once it loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Memory. On the left select, "Desktop Memory." Afterward use the, "Guided Search" to narrow your search to the type that is in your system, that way you're looking at memory types that your system supports aiding you ever so greatly in your choice.

Now just to clarify. This will increase the system-memory not storage-space. With storage-space I mean a hard-drive which contains all your files, personal data, and the Operating System in your computer. If you want more storage-space we will need to buy you a new hard-drive. This won't be as difficult, we just need to know if you have ATA or SATA. Most likely you have ATA since your computer appears to be oldler, so I would recommend a Seagate ATA hard-drive from this website. Once the website loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Hard Drives. Afterward, on the left under, "Hard Drives" select, "Internal Hard Drives." Afterward on the left under, "Guided Search" select the, "Interface" type, "IDE Ultra ATA100." Afterward make a pick on a hard-drive that has the storage space you're after. (The only seagate doesn't have a lot of space, so the ultimate decision is up to you.)

So get back to us with your choice along with the information on your RAM and hard-drive types and we'll let you know if you made a good decision.
