Question about Intel D915GAG Motherboard

1 Answer

D915GAG problem Hi All and thanks for place like this, I have run 2 years smoothly my computer D915GAG & Pentium 530 without any problem, even Vista has been installed 4 months without problems. One day I was tired to hearing Pentiums original cooler sound and bought Thermaltake Golden Orb II cooler and installed it. Couple day?s everything goes fine, after that computer doesn?t like to booting up, I have to press 2-4 times to power button after it starts and works correctly. Fans and led?s etc. powering up but nothing happens, sometimes I get Bios screen there, but still it won?t start. After I get it start, it will work without a problem. Any idea? Thanks!

This cant have anything to do with only replacing a cooler, unless when fitting it you have caused some sort of stress damage to the motherboard. Check all seatings of ram, graphics card and power connections in case they have been dislodged. I assume you have tried resetting the cmos settings in case there is a corrupt bios for some reason. The only other check is to see if the cooler is starting up straight away, as the processor may be shutting down if there is no fan running, or the motherboard is reading the temperatures incorrectly and not enabling you to boot.

Can I use Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6500 Processor for this Motherboard?

I don't think your motherboard supports Dual core processors. It supports only Intel Pentium processors and Intel Celeron processors. For full details, you can check out here.

Hi nestorjnk, if your question is in referance to the Intel D915GAG motherboard you can only use an Intel CPU. The supported CPU list for this motherboard can be found on the link below;

This is the highest CPU that can run on the D905GAG motherboard; (Click the link).

You must also have the bios version, 0391 or greater to support this CPU. Click on this link;

Your question of which CPU is better varys. I like AMD CPU's.
Others like Intel. Its more about personal likes. AMD's can take more heat than an Intel. Both require decent air flow.

Enjoy nestorjnk!
Thank you for using fixya.
