Question about Intel Desktop Board D845GLVA (BOXD845GLVAL) Motherboard
I am having the computer with Intel 845GVSR motherboard,P4 Processor,128 MB RAM Configuration. When i switch on the system, three beep sounds come and the system is not booting. But the RAM is in working condition.No problem in RAM. One day there was a melting smell from my system.Immediately i switched off it and i felt some heat in the first end of the memory slot. Because the RAM is not in the position at the time. Fromthat time onwards it gives this problem? I am not using PCI slot or any card.
That means a short in contacts on memory slot, or a component on board melting down.
If this happened it is possible that the motherboard is faulty.
If you are lucky the motherboard will read memory on one of memory slots, more likely it wont read memory at all.
Due to the cost of labor required to test and fix the motherboard usually it is worth replacing it rather than fixing it.
A P4 motherboard starts from around $50, on Ebay you can find tested and guaranteed second hands from $20.
