Thread: Possible GA-P35-DS3L problem

    Default Possible GA-P35-DS3L problem

    So I just got brand new parts to upgrade my whole PC; CPU, mobo, GPU, memory, the works.

    Exactly what I got:

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
    Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
    Memory: Corsair 2x1GB DDR2 sticks
    GPU: EVGA GeForce 8800GT 512MB
    HD: some Western Digital 500GB thing
    PSU: Corsair 650TX 650w
    CPU Heatsink: Arctic Cooling Pro 7

    Now, when I got it all hooked up into my case, the computer would not power on. I thought perhaps the PSU was bad since I wasn't getting any kind of signal out of it. Fiddling around with some plugs that I thought I might have messed up, I managed to get some response out of it.

    I powered it on through my main computer's power switch, and my motherboard emitted a very high-pitched, long BEEEEEEEEP and after two seconds my CPU fan kicked on. Fiddling around some more, I turned it on again and got another beeping, only with continuous multiple beeps while my CPU fan did a start-stop-start-stop thing.

    I've ruled my PSU is actually working properly but now I think my motherboard is the culprit. I have no idea why it could be acting this way.

    I still can't power on my whole PC properly and it's really frustrating me. Does anyone know what possibly could be wrong?

    1 short: System boots successfully
    2 short: CMOS setting error
    1 long, 1 short: Memory or motherboard error
    1 long, 2 short: Monitor or graphics card error
    1 long, 3 short: Keyboard error
    1 long, 9 short: BIOS ROM error
    Continuous long beeps: Graphics card not inserted properly
    Continuous short beeps: Power error

    So which of those is it?

    And does your board support 45nm CPU's out of the box? What Bios rev is installed?

    P35-DS3L supports 45nm out of the box perfectly. Mine is one of it. Have almost identical setup with 4gb of Wintec
