I have this issue where I bought a dz68db motherboard and I stalled it correctly I think... I have ddr3 ram from g skill 4 gb and an intel celeron 2.5ghz CPU, with an EVGA GeForce 9500gt series graphics card... Power supply of 750 watts by ULTRA. I configured it all right I think and I turned it on for about 15 seconds and then shuts off... No BIOS, no nothing... Please help me and I don't know what I did wrong I I don't see anything when I turn the system on and when I tried to move the ram, and unplug the unnecessary components, the plug where the psi connects to the motherboard started to smoke up so I turned off the power immediately and unplugged it... Other than that, all looked good... The standby light was on and I am really confused
Hi Danny, Looks fine with respect to compatibility of Board and Proessor. Not sure what is the speed of the memory you are using. Use DIMM 1 slot, if you are using only one stick.
Hi Danny, wrt compatibility it is fine. Try using DIMM 1 slot if you are using only one stick. Can you see intel logo once you switch on the system. Thanks, - Ravi
no... the intel logo did NOT show and my monitor has no signal shown in the screen... the computer would simply turn on, fans run, gueassing processor working, without the graphics card in, and i still didnt get anything... after about 10-15 second later, just like it turned on, it shut down... and now it has smoke as told before...
none of the help worked but the ram slots were in the wrong slot... i had them in dimm 3. i put it in dimm 1 and it started to smoke... really confused... i go to a technical school and bringing the computer there to get help... i have all the parts and if its the motherboard, what do i do? i bought it off of ebay, and do i talk to the company that sold me the motherboard or do i talk to intel? i dont know who to talk to and i am really hoping its nothing really serious...
alright... i found what was wrong.. the outlet was bad and it all works now, but after a little researching, my motherboard is dead... no beeps, no bios, no video, i didnt even get to flash the bios at all... it was a brand new motherboard and is it possible if i get a new motherboard at all? i bought it from ebay and the seller cant take it back because of the 15 day policy... is there anything i can do to get a new motherboard??? i didnt break it... i dont think so anyway...
Danny just relax & RMA the BOARD
Try not to mention anything about the bad outlet thingy or the smoke thing also. Just tell them you installed everything & it didn't boot. I would also check the cpu if its working also.
As long as there is no physical damage to the board itself they are OBLIGED to replace it.
Everything can be fixed don't worry
I didn't get what you exactly mean by outlet. In the future, be careful of static electricity. Also test the PSU
