Question about Intel Motherboard

BIOS wont load

I just installed the motherboard and all components, when I try booting the PC my screen stays blank, the fans and all the SATA drives start running but not any signal to the screen. I've tried switching to another graphics card, used 2 different monitors, I've triple checked all the cables but I can't find anything wrong. Is there a way I can find out what component is malfunctioning?

    Thanks, but the RAM cards have also been checked. This is the first time an error of this kind has occured for me. Could there be a problem with my CPU, and is there a way of finding out if it is that? would a picture of the motherboard help?

No beeps, right?
Well, if you have a floppy drive in there, remove it. Also, when searching for a problem, you should allways start with a barebone config. Start with the board, vga and RAM only, and see if there's a problem. Keep adding components until it freezes again. Then you have the guilty one.
Good luck.

    You could take the CPU out and check for any bent or broken pins. That will do it too.

Try resetting the bios to defaults by clearing the cmos.

First switch off at wall and remove power leads. The push on button to discharge capacitors on board.

The jumper will be located near the bios battery and chip usually at the bottom right of motherboard. Move the jumper to the clear position and leave for a few mins. Then put back into normal postition and start pc up.

If that fails to clear it then repeat but remove the battery from the motherboard too and wait longer.

Hope that sorts it for you?

Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf

Comp will not boot after installing a SATA DVD-RW


Perhaps your bios is set to boot from the 1st device it 'sees'.
When you add the dvd drive, maybe the device order gets shuffled up, making the dvd drive 1st. So, you need to check this by looking at the boot settings on the bios screen and change the boot order if necessary.

I have an msi ms-7390 k9n sli ver 2 motherboard and I updated the bios to the latest ver. 1.2. After that when cold booting the motherboard does not initialize usb you have to press delete to enter setup...


move the sata connection for your bootable HDD to another port like 3 or 4 and the bios will detect then run bios setup to boot from the sata 3 or 4 and it works like normal, must be a bug in sata 1 and 2. had same issue trying to install win7 x64. Win 7 refuses to detect sata DVD drive, moved it on the MB and it installed fine.

I have an Acer 5670 Laptop, I replaced the HDD with a new SATA drive and when I powered up the laptop, the Video card fan starts, the CD drive cycles once, the drive light flashes 3 times, then it stops....


Sounds like it. Try taking out the hard drive, disconnect all usb devices and anything attached, and try to run POST again...Being a laptop, there is not a whole lot else you can do if it won't POST. YOu can try swapping in some different RAM that is known to be good also.

Power on emachine T6420 and moniter is blank. The moniter soon loses contact with the computer. The fan run and power is OK there is no beep code.


If you mean after the computer performs the self test the screen goes blank and stays blank, eventually turning off you are having a hard drive problem. When the computer boots you should see an E-Machines logo and/or a self test on the screen. That is done by the motherboard as part of every boot up. After that the motherboard passes control to your boot device and loads your operating system. If your computer stops booting at that point, your boot device is not working properly. That could be caused by many things - virus, hardware failure, power outage. If you really mean you see nothing at all on the screen when you press the power button your computer simply is not working at all. Open the case, blow all the dust out of it and reseat all components you can, then try again.

Boot failure asus a7v 133 motherboard installed a pci sata raid


Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.

Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.

First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
If you do not have a floppy disk drive than make the first boot device your DVD writer.
Save the bios & exit the bios. You should not receive "boot disk error message anymore".

Run into a problem, post here.
Good luck whistler1410!

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!


May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.

Asus m2n-mx se plus windows xp wont boot


All you need is the hard drive manufacture's setup software. Flashing you're bios is not the answer. On each drive (SATA & IDE) is the name & model number. Go to the Mf's site & download the free setup software, tools & utilities. Most sites will list software you can download to creat a bootable floppy disk or software to creat a bootable CD. Run the software on the SATA drive. Than unplug the SATA data cable & connect one IDE at a time. Again down load the Mfg's setup software. Do the same for the other IDE. Disconnect the data cable for the IDE drives. Do a fresh install of windows. (DO not allow windows to format the drive)! Just install windows & the motherboard drivers. Than update windows. Durring reboot press & hold the power on button on the PC untill it powers off. Connect the two IDE drives. Check the pin settings on the IDE drives. Set AS; Primary IDE drive 1 as master with a slave. Set IDE two as a slave drive.
Check the bios Boot setting. Make sure the SATA drive is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the PC. Windows should boot just fine.

Good Luck!
Still have an issue, post the trouble here with a description.

Boot difficulties Seagat Baracuda 7200, 300 GB


Could have something to do with the IDE being set to master.. It has been known that sometimes the SATA drive will take over as the master.. Try changing the IDE drive to cable select, and see if that helps.. If not, change the SATA to slave.

If that doesn't work, post your motherboard model# along with your bios name/version.. and we'll go from there.

As a side note: When they are connected the way they are now, does the bios show both drives?
