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

Monitor will not awake from sleep mode. Pilot light is amber when asleep. If the monitor is turned off pilot light goes from amber to off or black or nothing. Turning the monitor back on the pilot light...

That means your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card.

A couple things to check:
*Make sure your cable is ok - unplug and replug the cable to see if it is a loose connection. Or try a different cable.

*Make sure your computer is not in sleep mode - Move your mouse or otherwise ensure your computer is awake and sending a video signal

*If you have another computer, try the monitor on the other system and see if it works.

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?

Monitor not activating

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

Monitor doesnt come on , but the power light goes from amber to green. then comes on after 20-30mins maybe.

Maybe update your display drivers. PC appears to be slow.
Make sure you don't have a bunch of apps that auto start.
Do you hibenate your PC?
Same issue if you connect monitor to another PC?
If issue follows you to a different PC it says monitor. If it doesn't it says the first PC (that monitor is currently connected to) had a cpu/memory or a driver issue.

Good luck
