    Problem with GAMA78GM-US2H. This is the second board from Newegg. It won't POST. CPU fan spins up. When in the case, the case fan spins up, but no video. Screen remains blank. Does not post. I tried two different Athlon X2 CPUs,(4400+, 5400+) three different brands of memory (corsair 800Mhz, Crucial CT 12864AA667 8FG, Acer brand memory), 3 differnt power suplies and tow different monitors. All these components worked in other systems.

    Is there an issue with this board or something special that needs to be set?

    My case is older. I connected the Power switch, HD LED connector, reset switch and speaker (but not the message connector) there were no beep codes at power up. I returned the first board and now I have the same issue with this board. I have tried one stick of memory instead of two and tried all 4 memory slots in various combinations and singularly. I also reset the bios by pulling the battery and puting a jumper on the CMOS reset.

    Is there something I am missing? could I get two DOA boards?

    I’ve been trying everything to get my new MB to boot Windows XP SP2 from one of My CD/CCRW drive (Liteon SOHR-5238s). I also have a DVD/R-RW/CD-RW combo drive that will also not boot. I would like to do a clean install of XP.

    I’ve set the BIOS to boot from the CDROM first, then HDD, then floppy. I get the message to press any key, which I press, and then BIOS just re-posts. If I ignore the press any key message, Then the OS boots from my hard drive – Seagate SATA II. I want to clean install windows on this drive where the OS is now. It’s booting fine from the HD, but then it’s loading all of the old drivers from my previous MB. I’ve had to get work done so I loaded the drivers from the new gigabyte MB into my current Windows system on the HD.

    I’ve tried disconnecting both of my SATA disk drives, I’ve tried different cables from the CDROMs and drives. One of the drives, which is where I would like to boot from is an IDE drive. The other CDROM is a SATA.

    I even tried booting with Windows XP startup floppy disks (six of them). I get clear through the process of putting each disk in and then get a blue screen telling me Windows cannot complete installation or I’ll risk equipment damage, that I should update BIOS, check my video card driver and that I have enough space on my disk drive to install. At the end of the message there are 4 different “Stop” errors.

    I updated bios to most current version F5F and tried again. Same thing.

    How do I get this CDROM to boot?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    System specs:
    MB - GA-770-UD3 (Rev 1.0)
    AMD Phenom II AM3 720 CPU
    160 GB Seagate 7200.9 HD (SATA 2) (Where WinXP SP3 is installed now)
    80 GB Seagate 7200.7 HD (SATA) 3 partitions
    Lite-On SOHR-5238S CD/CD-RW (IDE)
    Lite-ON DVD-CD/DVD-RW/CE-RW Combo drive (SATA)
    4GB Kingston DDR2 800MHz memory (2x2GB)

    I just assembled a system using a Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H motherboard, Phenom II 720 processor, 2X2GB Mushkin DDR2 1000 RAM, Xigmatek HDT-S1283 heatsink and 365W enermax power supply.

    The system was running fine for two days, but when I turned it on the next day it didn't POST. Only the heatsink fan was running. I have tried resetting the CMOS, switching power supplies, and using a single stick of RAM in various slots and nothing changes. When I hooked up a speaker I got 3 long beeps followed by 1 short beep.

    Also, while the system was working if I set the integrated video to use sideport only, windows would fail to boot if I had the catalyst drivers installed.

    Any suggestions on what to do? I don't have any other AM2+ motherboards or processors to test with.

    thanks

    So you cannot even get in the BIOS at all now? Just checking since you mentioned GFX Drivers, just wanted to see if you could not post to the BIOS or just could not load windows.

    Your PSU worries me, what was the other you had tested with? What GFX Card are you using when not using the onboard?

    How did you try clearing the cmos, and for how long? I suggest you try my method outlined in Post # 2 of this thread and see if you get any further >>>

    Do you know what BIOS you are using? Can you record the Beep code and upload it and post here for me to listen to? Thanks, hope you can

    That is about normal, I think mine is 56 right now. Pretty warm though, I dont like the new Heatsinks I think the material is too thick. The "Fins" like on the P45 ones cooled much better

    Thanks for your response.

    That is correct, I can't get into the BIOS at all (The comment about the drivers was referring to when the system still booted).

    I have tried two other DELL power supplies around 300W.

    The graphics card I used was an ATI Radeon X300 PCIe.

    To reset the CMOS I tried shorting the jumper for several seconds (many times) and left the battery out overnight. I will try the method you suggest tonight.

    I'm pretty sure the board has F1 BIOS, I don't think there are any other available.

    thanks again for your time
