Question about Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Spontaneous reboot I'm at wit's end; my system is rebooting on its own. When I got this system, it didn't happen, but lately it's happening more and more, and it's happening sooner after powerup. An odd sound accompanies this, from the motherboard somewhere near the memory slots, reminiscent of the sound a steamkettle makes before it whistles. I was concerned it was a problem with my CPU overheating, so I purchased a better heatsink/fan and replaced it, I've added fans to the case, removed two HDs for concern they were heating up the ambient in the case, etc. Then I thought it was the video card overheating, pulled it and ran off the motherboard's video... same thing. Runs for a while... BADOOP, reboot. Current thought it that the northbridge or southbridge is overheating, but I don't get why it would be doing that now. I did remove the heatsink from the northbridge, and take a look... reapplied new paste and reattatched. Currently I'm running with the side off the case, with a fan blowing into the side, but even that doesn't always work... and it sure is loud.

G31tm-p21 the lan controller wont detect at all. there is no device where a driver is required, and i did check to see if it is enabled in the bios.

The on board lan could have went bad. You can try disabling it in the bios and reboot, then look in device manager and at the top check "show hidden devices" and un-install the network card and the controller. Then reboot to the bios and enable it again and when you reboot windows should say that it has found new hardware and let windows try to install the drivers.
I have had that happen on a lot of computers lately. If it still does not work, I would install a separate network card in an empty slot.
Hope I was of some help ,Thanks for using Fixya

Every time i play games my computer is restart

Have you installed anything new lately into your P.C.? Graphics card , Ram, etc.. does this only happen when starting games?
Perform 'Disk Cleanup' and 'Disk Defragmenter' both found by clicking 'Start button', 'All Programs', Accessories', 'System Tools', then select 'Disk Cleanup' 1st and finish that before selecting ' Disk Defragmenter', When completely finished reboot P.C. and try your games. If it still happens it might be a simple thing like replacing the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The P.C. sounds like it's demanding more power when starting games and the P.C. restarting to protect itself.

Either the power supply is weak. ie failing under stressing loads. or the motherboard is failing. Look at your MB closly and look for capacitors with swelling tops or ooze comping out of them (looks like brown crusting)

Asus system will not stay connected to the internet

Sounds like a great system! I suggest you disable the local LAN on your computer (in BIOS) and install an ethernet card. They cost about $10.00 on

Could be ASUS had a problem with onboard Lan chip.

It's worth a shot...

PC spontaneously rebbots

Hi rogermx,
You’re temperature is great. No trouble there. You can try this with Windows XP. Open system properties. Click on the Advanced tab. Go down to, Startup & recovery. Click the settings button. Remove the green check mark next to: Automatically restart. Click Ok. Than restart your system. The next time you're system does a restart all by its self you should receive an error message on screen. Hopefully you have time to write it down.
Post the error message here if you can't find a fix for the error.
Windows may need the system to restart a few times before you receive an error message. Try this before I add more suggestions.

Good luck!
