Motherboard Installation Problem

I just installed the Intel DP35DP with an Intel Core Duo processor, I also added the required DDR2 RAM. I also upgraded the power supply.  When I turn on the computer nothing happens.  The monitor says No Video Detected and the USB ports don't work (i.e., I plug in any USB device like my lighted keyboard and nothing happens).  I also have a new GeForce 7600 PCI-E graphics card.


The first time I turned it on after installation the initial Intel screen asking me whether I wanted to use F2 to configure the system. I couldn't do it because my USB keyboard, USB mouse, etc doesn't work. When I powered off and on again I get absolutely nothing but the blank video screen.

    Progress. I can get past the F2 screen. USB working (both mouse and keyboard working). However, I'm in an infinite reboot loop. The computer, whether I choose Start Windows Normally or in Safe Mode, will continue to automatically reboot itself.

    Removing the 2nd stick of RAM allowed me to get to the BIOS/F2 screen. However, I'm in an infinite automatic reboot loop, whether I choose Start Windows Normally or in Safe Mode.

    Windows Vista was already installed on my computer. Yes, it's the same hard drive.  Just the motherboard, RAM, GeForce, and CPU are new.

    Makes sense, I think. I've been trying to "repair" for the last 2 hours, but still doesn't work. Should I just reinstall Windows Vista?

How annoying... I guess my last message didn't make it.

So lets start with what you got. Forget the USB problem. Your pc doesn't get to that point.

Here are the things you should do.

Remove ALL extra devices connected to the pc including:
Hard drives
Expansion cards of any kind

The ONLY thing that should be connected is:
Power Supply
1 Stick of Ram
Video Card

Now REMOVE the Power Cable from the PSU
Remove the BATTERY from the main board.
Let it sit for about 5minutes.

Place the battery back into the board
Plug in the pc
Press the power button

What happens?
Do you get any message on the monitor now?
Sounds ?

You should get at minimum another chance to press F2 and reset the bios.

Post your results and we can get you going.

    Also if you still get nothing, use the other stick of ram.

    have you installed windows on this hardware configuration yet?

    Or did you just put in this harddrive from another pc?

    Then it wont work :)

    You cant change the main board. If you use a new board it needs to have the same chipset. Otherwise you will get "restarting"

    So you need to do a repair install with your vista disc. You will need to also reactivate vista after you are done.

    Their is NO way to get around it. The only thing you can do is get a board with the same chipset as the old one.

What type of RAM is compatible for my desktop pc for increasing speed ?

Your motherboard can support up to 8 Gb of ram, of type DDR2 667 MHz or 800 MHz. In practice 667 would do I believe as the performance difference is not great in practice. The board has 2 DIMM sockets for this.

It depends somewhat on your OS and what you want to do. I'd try 4 Gb first. Bear in mind that added ram doesn't actually speed the computer as such, only a faster CPU does that, but it will allow more windows to be kept open, and cut down on data swapping to virual memory on the hard drive.

Motherboard DP35DP Installation Problem

You should try a regular ps/2 mouse and keyboard.  You probably don't have the USB drivers installed for the new board.  After you get booted into windows you'll be able to install those.

I have a laptop of compaq brand whose modle no is presario C700 in which intel celeron microprocessor is installed. 512 MB ram is installed i want to update it 4 improving its speed. i want to setup a...

I found the manual on the net that gives you instructions on replacing components if you're not sure how, it can be found here.

RAM upgrade
The Compaq Presario C700 uses DDR2 Laptop RAM as shown below.
slasher_x_11.jpg The motherboard of the Presario C700 has two RAM slots, one of them will be occupied by the 512MB RAM (running at 667MHz) module you have at present. This leaves one more that can accomodate a DDR2 667Mhz card of up to 1GB or you could get two 1GB DDR2 800MHz (the faster DDR2) cards and remove the 512 leaving you with a wopping 4GB of memory, that'll definately speed it up. Just remember the Presario C700 can only have up to 2GB of RAM so don't go higher than that or Windows will not boot for some reason.

Processor upgrade
The Presario C700 supports any Socket P, Core 2 Duo or Pentiun Dual Core chips. The fastest processor you can get is the Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB

For a full list of compatible processors go to page 9 of the user manual found here.

check HDD and RAM, make sure your HDD new formated

9600 gt compatibility with ddr2 RAM

sure, the only thing that matters is that you have a PCI-E slot, which you do. You processor is plenty powerful so enjoy your games.


Still Doesn't Work

You needed to configure bios (F2) when you first installed the processor,


now the Bios hangs before anything can happen,  You need to remove the Bios Battery (looks like a coin on the mobo) for about 30 secs (with the power disconnected)  then re-insert the battery and power on.


you should get the same power on message as you did the 1st time (maybe with a missings settings error too but this is expected)


Enuro12 is right about legacy USB in that your keyboard should work in BIOS (setup)
