I am trying to refurbish a PC with a 8IPE1000 PRO2 mother board.
At between 33 and 35 minutes to finish of the installation it stops working and has to be turned off - with XP Pro and Home; also with Vista it stalls part way through but with Windows Me it fully installs (I think it is because Me does not check for Devices).
I have removed all peripheral devices, exchanged all possible hardware with known working hardware, used genuine Windows CDs, taken the CMOS battery out overnight, redone the BIOS - but not Flashed it as I do not know how.
Gigabyte Support have suggested it needs to be taken to a repair shop, but I would like to get it going if at all possible.
Is there a mother board diagnostic program to find faults?
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
Make sure your BIIOS ver is up to date (go to Gigabyte website to confirm)

Here is your boards Manual on page 27 it tell how to clear CMOS. Basically turn power off and unplug remove battery for approximately 30 seconds put battery back in plug in and turn on'

To flash your bios use Qflash... Before flashing BIOS,please read: BIOS Flashing - A "How To ~ Qflash Guide"
try with bare minimum hardware,one stick of memory onboard graphics(take out graphic card) one hdd ect,disable floppy drives from the bios and drive a,even if you dont have floppy drive and see if you can install windows

Wazza I do not have an onboard graphics connector (as far as I can tell anyway) and I have tried all of your suggestions except that - thanks again. Conners I have now cleared CMOS as described and retried to install, but to no avail. Very hesitant about Flashing/updating BIOS and will read carefully before doing it as many people warn against it for people like me. Will reply when I do it. I also have to check more carefully the correct BIOS update as the Motherboard has Ga-8IPE1000 PRO2 on it and the product page has W after the PRO 2. Regards Waga
[QUOTE=waga;430521]Thank you Conners and Wazza300 for your replies,
Finally I tried and was successful to Flash the BIOS to F10 from F7. But to no avail again - same problem with installation stalling at about 34 minutes.
Also: 1) The PWR_LED is not working on the motherboard; it is connected to the PWR_LED on the motherboard - but in the manual (which is for the earlier model) it is connected in the 10 wire front panel connector.
2) The 10 wire front panel ribbon colours do not match the manual.
3) There is not a NB_Fan connected.
4) I have changed again from the AGP8x slot to a PCI slot and graphic card, when I did this I got a "Checksum Error" message with F1 to continue - this took the installation to 9 minutes to go instead of the usual 34 minutes (this was before the Flashing of the BIOS), but after a restart it was back to 33, 34 or 35 minutes again.
5) I have been reading about "SetUpapi.log files" (M/Soft kb828267) to detect which device was being installed before stalling - should I try this do you think?
6) The PC was used for gaming before me and has not worked since, is there any "gaming settings" in BIOS that would not be reset to standard by Clearing CMOS and Flashing the BIOS?
7) Are there any BIOS settings for SATA that I should check after using the ÷ptimised settings?
If you have any other thoughts I would appreciate it.
Might just try letting it set there for a while when it seems like it stalls.
