Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Response to MSI question

Thanks for the response. First hint, I have no video signal at the monitor. (Possibly blown ATI Rage 128 card?). But I also have no power light on the front of the machine, or any activity on the hard drive light. I have tested both hard drives in another machine, and they are both, thankfully, fine. DVD drives are still searching, and I get 12 volts on the hard drive power lines, so I'm guessing the power supply is OK. Can't test the motherboard power leads 'cos I can't turn on the power supply with it un-attached - I don't think I can anyway.

Thanks again,

Michael

I would assume you have double checked all the connections to the motherboard from the power supply, and all other wire connections as well.

How many watts is the power supply? Perhaps there is too much for it to handle?

Try connecting only the HDD and the motherboard/cpu/fan and graphics card and see if it boots up, If it does, your PSU is being overworked.

I will continue to think up some more things...

Computer Does not work correctly with Radeon 9250 Graphics Card


Hmm? Everything except replacing the motherboard, sometimes it does not get any better, but...go into your BIOS and turn off the Gateway splash screen. It will be an option in maybe the first or second menu choice. Make sure your on board video device is disabled and save your options when exiting. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

After Power Out No Video (AT ALL) Upon Reboot


Plug a PCI VGA card into one of the PCI slots on your motherboard and connect your monitor signal cable to this add-on PCI VGA card and turn on your system . If your monitor shows the usual startup screen then you continue booting your comp and let the OS load , thereafter you BACKUP your DATA . Use a PCI VGA card from TRIDENT or S3 etc., so that your OS will use built drivers to display at 256 , 16 bit or 24 bit colour depth . These motherboards have problems around the GMCH or the Northbridge chip which has Graphics & Memory Control integrated . The refresh signal to your monitor does not indicate proper working of these GMCH . The memory of your comp needs attention and a check .
