Intel(R) Desktop Board D865GBF Crashed and now won't power up

  1. Friends,
    I just posted this on Intel's web site. Maybe someone here has had similar

    Intel(R) Desktop Board D865GBF Email Support Request
    "PC shut down during normal operation but then wouldn't even do post or
    beeps. Swapped out Intel P4 2.6 CPU for identical unit, then swapped each
    CPU through D865glc Mboard with same results for all. Unplugged all cables
    except power and video. No beeps or display, only fans running. What did I
    miss?, and what now?"
    Also powered down and removed battery for an hour, but with no improvement.
    Removed memory all but 1 in Slot O Channel A, but no change.
    Everything had been functioning well prior to crash.
    Thanks for any thought you may have.

    Try removing all the memory from the board, and then power it up. You should
    get a beep code indicating no memory present. If it's still silent, then you either
    have a defective mb, a bad CPU or a bad power supply. If it beeps, then all of the BIOS
    including memory timings, will be set to their default values. Sometimes this is
    the only way to reset an Intel mb after playing around with BIOS settings and
    rendering the system unbootable.

    I don't understand what you meant by "...swapped each CPU through D865glc
    Mboard with same results for all." Do you mean that every CPU you have,
    including the one from the non-working D865GBF, works in a different
    D865GLC you also have on hand?

    The last time this happened to me, it was a bad power supply that wasn't
    completely dead, just a deficient 5V line (so the fans still worked).

    Also, since this is a P4, make sure the 4-pin CPU power cable is plugged
    in firmly to the mb.

  4. Hi Bob,
    I mean that I took my friend's formerly working CPU removed from
    another, upgraded MB and could't get even a beep. Ditto for spare D865GLC
    MB, and even swapped out a spare power supply! I did remove all memory and
    power up. I get no beeps at all under any conditions, and no video at all.
    This "Midas touch in reverse" is driving me crazy!!!
    Thanks for your thoughts,
