Intel Motherboard Guru Needed ASAP
Posted on 2004-04-03
I got a couple of questions. I ordered the D865GBFL (Or at least thought I did from Newegg, but the board says 865GBF/865PERC and Intel doesn't even list an 865GBFL on their site). Here is my configuration: I am running an Intel P4 1.6 400FSB Processor. I have 1 512MB Stick of Kingston DDR333 in DIMM 0 On Channel A (Closest to the Processor). The processor is a known good. Can't say that about the RAM. I Have two HDD's on the Primary IDE set as Master and Slave and A DVD ROM and CDRW on IDE 2 Set as Master and Slave. The Board was an OEM board so I got no manual for it, just an insert. I can find nowhere to connect the front speaker to hear any POST beeps and when I power the system up I get nothing. Fans spin up...CPU and Rear Chassis, HDD and Power Lights illuminate but I get no video signal to the monitor. Since I have no speaker I can't even begin to try to troubleshoot the problem.
So, I need someone to help me figure out where the front speaker connects to so I can troubleshoot why this board is not posting, Or do the post beeps come from the rear audio connectors? Is this board strictly dual channel? Do I have to have another stick of RAM in the B Channel slot 0? bigguy44 said he has used Intel boards for 2 years and they are rock solid. If this is my first experience I don't think I will be using them.
Does someone have a pdf of a manual for this board they can e-mail me or a link to d/l one? I couldn't even find one on Intel's site to d/l and their support leaves a lot to be desired.
