Motherboard not booting

New gigabyte ga-m61pme-s2 , amd athlon x2 processor, 2 sticks of 1g ram.
Nothing comes up on the screen tries the dvd drive then the hard drive but nothing comes up. Is a old hard drive sseagate 160 g with xp pro and data already loaded, less than 12 months old and was working.
Have checked and double checked all connections, reset the ram etc etc but not so much as a sound or any thing on the screen

    Can you at least get a POST screen to enter BIOS?



    Do you have the XP CD available?



    Have you tried to boot from the XP CD?

Ok do you have an internal VGA card installed? If yes remove it and try to boot using the onboard VGA.

Also I recommend you disconnect the HDD for the moment too. Lets see if we can get it to POST as a start. There are a number of issues to consider when we try to get the XP to work later

Is a Trident TGUI9680-1 graphics card compatible for a Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 motherboard?


These cards were new back in 1995. It WILL work installed in one of the PCI slots, but you will probably have to settle for the default VGA drivers since there most likely won't be anything available for the newer OS's. Don't expect great video quality of fast performance either since machines of that vintage clocked around 200 Mhz, unlike the 2+ GHz machines of today. Good Luck!

That is an error code for the video card / device.

Turn off and unplug the computer.
If possible remove and reinsert the video card.

if you have a shared video ( connected permanently attached ) remove and reinsert the memory chips.

Hi,#
Yes they can be replaced if you were thinking of doing it yourself, desoldering the old ones is the hard bit, however if you were looking to get someone to do it for you I suspect the price may well go at least around the same price as simply replacing the board as its available

Have you updated the BIOS for the motherboard? AM3 processors don't usually work correctly in an AM2 board without a BIOS upgrade. Also, did you remember to check the BIOS to see that it was set to use the onboard VGA? Likewise when you tried the graphics card (set to PCIe)? Another thing to do is plug the monitor in a known to be good computer to make sure it's working OK, perhaps a monitor setting is misconfigured.

2 GB DDR2 on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H Motherboard


Hello

That's normal condition. Probably your RAM shares it's capacity with internal video card (which uses the whole 256MB)
