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. 1 pin on the CPU dock was bent ever so slightly. Straitened it and monitor works fine. Thank you for help.

    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

I have a Samsung syncmaster 2233ws monitor every time I turn my monitor on it stays on for about 2 to 3 seconds and then it goes black I checked all of the capasitors on the mother board and they all...

I would still lean toward the computer being the issue. A lot of newer monitors will pop up something like "no signal" for 2-3 seconds and then enter power saving mode by default. If your getting at least this for a few seconds I would say the computer isn't working. Please note a computer can still have fans and lights going and still be bad. If you have lights and/or fans going I would start by replacing the power supply on the computer.
The easiest thing to do to narrow a problem down is rule out as much as you can. For the monitor if you have another computer, laptop or a friends laptop hook up the monitor to it and test. Monitor works then you have narrowed your issue to your computer. If the monitor still isn't working (you need to toggle the display generally on laptops [fn + F7] usually) then you know its the monitor.
By the way Samsung generally has a 5 year warranty on monitors.
If you have ruled out the monitor and power supply I would then try the following
  • If you have a dedicated graphics card, remove it and plug monitor into on-board video. If it works you know its the graphics card if it doesn't then it's most likely your motherboard.
  • Also can try completely unplugging the computer (pull power cord for 30 seconds) computers don't really turn all they way off usually they sit in S5 power mode)
  • Can also try pulling (if you have more than 1 stick of ram) pull all but one out and try powering on, repeat for each stick until it works. I have seen bad memory prevent computers from booting

My screen is not working although the computer turns on with all the lights

When you
When you power up your computer and the monitor screen remains dark, the problem can be either be associated with your monitor, or your computer power supply/video card/motherboard or CPU. Perform the following tests to isolate the problem to either the monitor or the computer.
1. Turn off you PC and monitor. Then verify that the 15 pin video data cable connectors are fully inserted into their receptacles on the rear of your PC and on the rear of the monitor and they are tightened down. (on some monitors the data cable is hard-wired to the monitor). Then make sure that both your monitor power cable is securely plugged into a working AC power receptacle. (You can temporarily plug a lamp into your AC power receptacle to make sure you have a good source of AC power).
3. Turn on the power switch on your monitor. The amber colored LED on your monitor should come on. Then turn on your PC. The fans in your PC start to run and continue to run and the LED on your monitor should change from amber to green.
Now if the monitor led remains amber and the screen stays dark you either have a bad monitor or a problem with your video card, motherboard or processor.. Try using a different monitor. If that doesn't solve the problem, you need to have a PC technician test your computer.

I have a va703b monitor that when turned on immediately displays NO SIGNAL then the green light turns to orange and the screen goes black. What's the problem?

That is usually a sign of a video problem, but first you should try to use your current monitor on another computer to see if it works there and/or try to use a different monitor on your computer. If your current monitor does not work on another computer and a different monitor DOES work on YOUR computer, then your monitor is broken and needs to be replaced (I will be utterly shocked if it's the monitor though).

Anyhow, going on the assumption that it's a video issue, Turn off the computer and unplug it from the wall and unplug the monitor from the computer. Now open up the computer tower. There are two things that you can try that won't require you to buy new hardware.

1.) Remove the video card (if you have one) and blow out all of the dust in the computer and off the video card. Look the video card over for any blown capacitors or any melted silicone (it will be obvious what you're looking for IF it's there). Put the video card back in, close the computer and plug it back into the wall and plug the monitor back into the computer and try to start the computer.

2.) You can remove the video card, blow all the dust out, and remove the CMOS battery (It looks like a shiny nickel that is sitting in your motherboard) for a minute or so. HOWEVER, if you do this, your BIOS will go back to it's default setup, which is fine if you never changed anything. Put the Video card back in, put the CMOS battery back in, close the computer, plug the computer back into the wall and the monitor back into the computer.
-------------- If you removed the CMOS battery AND you now have video, you're going to have to go into BIOS (setup) and change the date to the current date and time. (when your computer starts up, you'll see on the screen something like "PRESS DELETE TO ENTER SETUP" at that point press the delete key, or whatever key it says to press and you'll enter BIOS)

If you're still not having any luck, then your best bet is going to be to change out the video card with a compatible video card that you know is in working condition and if that works, then that means you will need to purchase a new video card because your current one is broken.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button

it seems to be an issue with the power supply as you already tried replacing the motherboard
power supply will be less expensive do try to get it replaced first

do check that monitor iss fine
unplug the blue VGA cable which connects your monitor to the tower
if a 4 colored box moves all over the screen the monitor is fine
and if it doesn't
get the monitor either repaired or get it replaced.

No Output to monitor, no beeps, fans all OK

Hi karanda,
The green led on the board shows green letting you know there is power to the borad.
Does your GFX card have dual outputs? Try plugging into the other output.
If your monitor light goes from green to amber than your PCI-E is not putting out signal. Pull & re-seat video card.
Did you check Asus to see if your CPU is supported & check what bios version you may need to run CPU?
Chcek here: Check what your M2M-E supports.

Your board only supports these two CPU's
Phenom 9500 (HD9500WCJ4BGD),2.2GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core
Phenom 9600 (HD9600WCJ4BGD),2.3GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core

You need Bios version 0802 in order to run the above CPU's.

Good Luck & kind regards!
