It sounds like you do not have a the correct RAM for the motherboard you have. The notch for each type of DDR is set at a different area so uses will not insert the wrong kind. Along with the DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 examples, you seem to have a FB-DIMM variant of DDR2 (Fully buffered). EDIT: (Due to your comments and the assist Of Davis Schwarz) New image of ...

You bought an FB-DIMM. Your motherboard takes regular DIMMs. You also need to make sure your motherboard supports 4GB modules. (Even if the motherboard supports 4GB, it may only support it as two modules.)

3 pin fans are voltage controlled only, feed less voltage to them to get them to slow down. An older fan that the lubrication had not been maintained, or just the usual cheap Sleeve bearing fan would have trouble starting up at lower voltages, although it might start-up properly at full voltages. Once started (as you noticed) it will run. Antec has/sells ...

After hours of searching I decided to trust this link (as Ramhound suggested) to update my bios. A great help was this little page over here !!! Also, the problem solved. I don't have black screen anymore. The problem is that the first link I gave you is in Turkish so you have to translate it. You could use Google Translate but to save you the time I will ...

Things to check: Make sure that you connect devices to one power cord. Try to rotate one of power plugs 180 degrees (exchange Live and Neutral). There might be some current going through signal cable. How long is the DVI-D cable? Try to change the cable, as it can have weak quality. Have you tried to run Windows and then to connect the LCD monitor? Check ...

Are the motherboards off-the-shelf products you can buy individually (and thus would have their manuals available online from the Internet) or some integrated ones (most likely inside a "branded" computer such as a Dell, HP, or some other big manufacturer - these may have limited availability for the motherboard manuals)? If you can find a manual based on ...

G.Skill "F3-2400C10Q-16GTX" is on the supported memory list for that board. It's the SAME RAM as what you have (G.SKILL F3-2400C10D-16GTX). The "Q" just means a Quad-Channel (4 sticks in one pack) and the "D" just mean "Dual Channel" (2 sticks in the pack). One thing to note this that RAM has actually have an SPD voltage rating of 1.5V, but it's been ...

You can remove the reset wire that is attached to the motherboard. It's possible the reset switch is stuck in the engaged position forcing the system to continually cycle. As well, unplug any USB devices or peripherals that you can to identify the device that may be causing the hanging, this includes CD's or DVD's that may be in a ROM tray and what not. ...

You could pull the battery out for 10 mins as a starter; then check everything is properly seated. Some mobo's, btw, don't have a beeper, though they usually have the header for one. I always carry a portable one, soldered to a header plug.

Your CPU is probably overheating. Check the CPU temperature when in full load to see if that is the case. It may require cooler/fan cleaning, new thermal paste.

Make sure sure your memory is compatible with the following: Dual channel, 2 slots, Non-ECC, 240-pin DDR2, Un-buffered Types: 667/PC2-5300, 800/PC2-6400 Source IPM31 Motherboard layout reference

Basically most versions of HDMI cables are able to transfer both Audio and Video. on-board HDMI port is available only when you don't have any discrete graphic card on your motherboard. so when you use SLI/Crossfire the on-board HDMI along with the build-in GPU in your CPU will be automatically disabled (assuming you have a Core i series CPU). When you ...

Yes, it will work. The 20+4 connector on your PSU means it can support motherboards that require a 20 pin or a 24 pin PSU. The last 4 pins are removable to support older motherboards.

The better question would be does the power supply support ALL the power pin requirements. Not only the 24 pin (and yes it does with the 20+4) but the 8-pin EATX 12V Power connector as well(see your mobo specs). In fact, your selected power supply does have that additional 8 pin connector. Be sure to plug it in or your new build will most likely not start ...

You could install a video card and run the monitor off of that instead. This may be your best bet. It may be a resolution issue. The 27” QNIX Monitor description through your link states that the PC graphic card should surport QHD(2560x1440). And the on-board graphics of your motherboard (again information available through your link) seem to max out at ...

The first set of RAM you linked to is buffered as well as ECC which means it definitely won't work. Buffered RAM is typically for servers so you need to make sure the RAM you buy is listed as unbuffered. The second set of RAM doesn't look particularly good quality to me, and it does clearly say it's for AMD systems so I wouldn't risk buying it. You might be ...

To be positive, you would need to contact Gigabyte. To be called DDR2 Ram, the ram chip needs to have an SPD chip containing JEDEC information which identifies the RAM Module to Bios. They also will contain extended information. On Intel it's called XMB and on AMD chipsets it's called EPP. If the PC Bios doesn't understand EPP or XMP it will fallback to ...

Yes and no. Its worth considering that the PSUs on a proper server are redundant - they are designed to failover one from another. The motherboards probably have two inputs (or there's a power distribution board of some sort). In short the systems are designed from the ground up to run two PSUs and switch between them with no interruption. Your adaptor, if ...

Generally speaking if it fits it should be compatible. Mix-matched chips of different performance ratings will have speed settings gracefully degrade until finding a common operating mode. When doubling RAM from 1 GiB this is probably a worthwhile penalty. It may not be compatible at all though. Usually, this is due to a chipset limitation regarding the ...

To your first question, no. The P4600 is not a general-purpose computing system, it's just low-end graphics, comparable to low-end discrete graphics cards (like an 8800 GTS) that also have little use for general-purpose computing. To your second question, yes, the motherboard graphics connectors typically do use the integrated processor graphics. ...

Make sure you attached the 4-pin black-yellow cable (goes in the corner of the MB). After that, if its not working, remove the RAM module and if everything else is ok it should beep (due to missing RAM). If it doesn't, the MB may be damaged. Why did you change the PSU initially ?

There are often settings made to the bios/uefi that are off from the defaults that can be critical to booting. It is good to write down settings prior to resetting or flashing a bios. Removing the battery resets everything to defaults, any of the needed changes would have to be remade. This can be things like: The Boot Order Default IDE RAID AHCI settings ...

The y-adapter is reasonable, and something you can calculate beforehand. The HDD manufacturer should provide a product specification listing the maximum amperage draw for the rails it uses (example). A power connector supplies a total of 4.5 A for each voltage, so knowing if you have enough power is something you can check Usually 3.5" drives use the 12V ...

This is not possible. The motherboard will choose one of the cards as the primary and the POST information will appear there always. What might be possible, assuming you have 2 monitors, is if your secondary monitor has two inputs, you could either take a second output from the primary card (if it has 2 connectors) or use a splitter cable to feed the ...
