Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Monitor will not turn on after booting computer

Hello and thank you.
I get the amber light on the monitor and it never goes green.
Had to unplug everything from the board to remove the board to
remove the old base on the board so the new CPU fan could just pop into
those holes. (old fan screwed into board)

I swapped the monitor and cables and get the same issue.

Connected old CPU fan and no monitor.

Unplugged the power for the fan and unplugged both dvd reader, burner in case issue was to do with not enough power supply (430 watts) and nothing still.

Reset monitor power, nothing.

Plugged directly into on board video and nothing.

Unplugged power cord, removed battery for 20 minutes, nothing.

Verified all cables are connected multiple times.

I have a gut feeling I did something to either the board or CPU.

I hear the hard drive doing its normal clicking when the computer is turned on and the green light is on on the motherboard, just no power to the monitor. I do not hear any beeps and do not ever remember hearing any at any other time anyways.

If I need a new cpu is there one better that is compatible with this board?

Stats are as follows.

Intel D945GPMLKR Intel Socket 775 MicroATX Motherboard

Intel Pentium D 840 3.20GHz OEM Processor (MBM-945GPM-840)

Chipset Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset family

Memory Controller: 82945G/GZ

Thank you before hand for any help given.

    Issue is resolved. One pin was sightly bent on the CPU dock. I had to use a magnifying glass to see the bend. Straightened it and all is working normally. Thank you all.

If you have onboard video try a video card that fits in PCI or AGP slot or try a different video card in place of the one you use
with everything else seeming to be correct this seems like the only thing you have not done

When I turn on the computer the monitor starts to come on and then it goes into safe mode and goes off. I first get a green light for a couple of seconds then it goes to amber.

Have you tried with another computer? I suggest to do it first, before assuming this is your monitor this is usually caused by most of computer problem not monitor.

I have an Acer AL1912 that when you plug in the ac, the green power light will blink for about a minute and a half then go solid. The backlight will come on and you can see a faint ghost of vertical lines...

If it is still in warranty call the manufacturer.
if not give more info May be somthing simple like a cable
shutdown computer unplug then disconnect the video cable on the computer from the monitor, plug monitor back in and turn it on, there should be a display that says no video source within a few seconds, if unit is working properly. shutdown and connect video again and then reboot computer. sometimes it just takes a compleat power disconect to reset things,

Exactly the same problem on boot-up with Likom (Futura) HD19A mon

ok, if your computer is able to boot until you able to use it yet the screen is showing none yet working too, i suggest you change your data cable from the computer to the monitor. i once had a problem like that. it must have been damaged by high input of charge and burnt off though it did not show.

Monitor Acer Problem

I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?

Sounds like will need component-level electronic troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section.
