Intel desktop board DP55WB motherboard for gaming?

Q: Intel desktop board DP55WB motherboard for gaming?

So I recently had my main computer crash and break to the point I need a new computer so I figured I'd make it worth it this time.

Here's the deal: (add the www to see it)

Everything on there seems decent but I am curious about the board itself. Would the Intel Desktop Board DP55WB Motherboard be good for gaming, which I wish to use my computer mainly for. I have at most a 700 dollar budget and this seems like a nice deal for it. I plan on putting a Geforce GTX 580 graphics card in it as soon as I get the money as a little side note if it matters.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'd suggest looking at the same chipset, but in either Gigabyte or Asus brands. Intel boards are fine, as much as it goes, but the BIOS is very limited as to configuration for different memory, and overclocking options. Intel really markets it's boards as mainstream items, intended for average users and businesses, they're not really aimed at the enthusiast.

The feature set can vary widely from board to board, and you should have a look at these pages to see which board has the capabilities you need;

Asus P-55; 600008216&IsNodeId=1&name=Intel P55

Their should be ( on the site where you found the update) information as to what issues it specifically addresses.Most of the time it is advisable to update chipset drivers. They control all the way everything your MB does, from the Ethernet to NB to Sb and ram communication. Where as a bios update should only be done if it specifically addresses issues you are experiencing, or new support for your CPU. This is of course my opinion. There'll be others I'm sure.Fabe

I have a INtel Desktop Board D945GCCR, and everytime I boot it up with the hard-drive i get a black screen, no intel logo, nothing happens to it just freezes up, when i remove the hard-drive (160 gb sata) it boots up to a screen still without the intel logo but it shows media failure and that it is quiting boot agent and that is all.

Has anyone had this problem before? This happens when there is no Windows installed on the hard drive. Can anyone help out? Thanks in advance.

Do you have another hard disk you can try?

If not, do you have a floppy drive you can boot to or maybe a CD-ROM drive and a bootable CD?

Hi Guys! I am new here.

Well I am in trouble regarding Intel D815EEA main board of my uncles PC.

The problem is, the PC had Segate ST320423A 20.4 GB HDD which no more works. Now as we all know its almost impossible to get 20 GB HDD in the market so I thought to buy at list 80 GB, BUT, I am not sure if D815EEA will support 80 GB HDD or above.

He dosent have mainboard manual but I downloaded from but with no use. In the manual its not mentioned what is the maximum GB HDD would D815EEA support.

So please, if any one could tell me how and where can I find this info, it would help me a lot.

I would say no or at least very unlikely as intel discontinued support for this board late 2006, running windows 7 on a Pentium 4 board is possible but for anything more than very basic tasks it's going to become painfully slow

your next problem with that age of motherboard is lack of ram

I would suggest save up and get a dual core motherboard to get you started

Hi, and thanks for looking at this problem. Hopefully you can help.
I was awake untill 4 this morning trying to figure out what the problem is with the motherboard i have just installed.
The problem is, i have installed the motherboard inside the case securly, connected the IDE cables, Floppy and Power Connector cables to the motherboard and the part i am confused on is, the front panel connecters. I cannot figure out which LED goes where, however i had guessed which is the power connector as i can power it on, but get no LED display on the front of my case, and no display on my monitor. I looked over the motherboard manual on the Intel website, and followed their instructions and still no luck.
Anyone who can help me, i would greatly appreciate it.
Many Thanks, Ant.

Hi everyone

I`ve been trying to install the 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate version on an Intel Desktop Board DZ77SL-50K using a 3TB Seagate HDD. Somewhere along the road, I learnt the motherboard must be switched to UEFI mode first in order to install the OS on a 3TB internal HDD. However, after enabling the UEFI mode in the BIOS menu, the mobo no longer recognizes the Windows 7 installation DVD although the Pioneer DVD drive appears in the boot menu and I can select the DVD drive to boot to.

Please someone help me figure how to boot to the installation DVD successfully in UEFI mode.

A:Three long beeps on Intel desktop board D850MV/D850EMV2

I think three beeps on Intel is a memory issue. At least that what it was when I had a stick of cheap RAM crap out on me.

I'd run Memtest and go from there

RAM can fail from a number of causes. Heat exposure, flaky transistor junctions, who knows. I seriously doubt plugging the TV in had anything to do with it.
You could go into BIOS to ascertain if the RAM voltage is set correctly. Over-volting is a DIMM killer.

You should be able to get documentation for that board directly off Intel's web site. Intel used to give BIOS beep codes ion the board/chipset manuals.

They also have hardware monitor software as a free download. Look up "Intel Desktop Utilities Lite".

A:Recommend Desktop Board for Intel« Pentium« Processor E5200

Hello avishnashrawat mate that is a fairly old CPU being a 775 socket and you will be looking at getting a used board unless you find something local new which I am doubting very much. Now I can only find the specs for the CPU and I cannot find anything of any use except it does support 64bit stuff but I cannot make out or see what memory is supported so.

Sorry but if it were me and I had this processor that is just what I would have to do. Now there are some good 1150 socket boards at a reasonable price out here at around $88 for the ASUS B85M-F Motherboard, and coupled with say a Pentium such as the Intel Pentium G3240 ($79) or Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition G3258 ($89) or even a Intel Celeron G1840 at $59 then you would have an up to date board and processor albeit they are quite basic but I would suggest they are superior to the CPU you have now. Plus you then just need the other components to suit ie RAM.

Now I understand you might be tied to a budget but truly I think you would be better off doing that than throwing good money after bad, because using used components is like playing Russian roulette - you just would not know what you are getting.

Anyway perhaps things might turn out and you find something that you are asking after - good luck

I have a Intel 815 Desktop Motherboard that I need the jumper settings for. I already checked out Intel and they didn't have them and I don't have a user's manual. Maybe someone can help.

Ok, the jumpers for this motherboard are NOT like the jumpers on modern mobo's or on hard drives, CD Roms etc. The jumpers on this mobo are on a blue rectangular box with numbers 1 through 5 on it with switches to go up and down(ON and OFF positions). Now this is what is written under it:

J24, J27, J28, J29, J39

Hopefully someone can recognize what all that means and please tell me what configuration I need those to be in so my motherboard and power settings and CPU settings will all be correct. PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you

Does anyone here actually have, or know someone who has, one of these computers?
It sounds like a good buy (WalMart), and I read the various reviews but of course I have no way of knowing if they are real/true or not.
The sealed liquid cooling, does that mean no maintenance ever?
I do not normally do a lot of internal work/replacement other than upgrading video cards and so the limited upgrades would probably not bother me very much.

Can someone verify for me that the chip in question is not supposed to look like this. I believe the 5v puple wire on the power supply ( currently putting out 9vlts) has overloaded this section of the board. I believe this to be the section of the board that's damaged and the reason why the computer won;t boot . You can see in the picture how it looks bubbled,

when i plug a 64mb pc100 (kingsington value ram) into the connector and boot, the system does not recognize the newly added ram. if i remove the two simms, the system doesn't boot. i took the ram and plugged it into one of my systems and it worked fine. open for suggestions.

Hi Dj-mike

The newer Intel based boards do support Midi port connections which would give you what you need for your biz.

I dont know if that answers your question but there you go ...

There are alot of options for maximising your midi setup when you build your own machine .

A:Intel Celeron D Mother Board Compatibility?

There is a good chance your CeleronD is not compatible with that board. I ran into this problem when we switched over to the CeleronD at work, we had to make sure we were getting the newer revision of the board (Albatron PM266 Pro), as the older one looked identical, but was not compatible (and no BIOS update would fix that).

It's true that they overclock well, I got my 2.66GHz one up to 3.4GHz without even needing to increase the CPU voltage.

Pin compatible? The sockets look identical, if that's what you mean. But boards may require hardware changes (e.g. improved power delivery) to support a Prescott. You aren't likely to damage a board by plugging one in, it just won't boot.

No, the motherboard supplies the voltage to it. The CPU tells the motherboard the voltage it wants, but some boards (including mine) allow you to increase the voltage.

Converting an Intel server (Win2003) to a Win 7 Pro workstation. During the install the drives are not recognized. Tried driver from Intel - intel_ichx_msft_raid_v.4.4.0630.2006_whql_updated - but still not detected.

The BIOS is still set to SATA but I have IDE and ACHI? as other options.

Any Suggestions on how to get the drives recognized during the install of Win 7 Pro?

Thanks in advance,


A:Need drivers for Win 7 Pro for Intel Server board - se7230nh1-e

it seems that that system does not have any drivers for windows 7 as it was never designed for it and as such neither does it have drivers for 2008 or r2 so using r2 drivers are out of the question your best bet is probably AHCI and software raid once in your OS, you may need to break your current array to set it to AHCI i'm not familiar with that board's raid setup. i mainly use a s5000xvn in my office. To get windows to see the drives for that at install i had to load drivers manually after picking custom install for 2008 r2.

Hi there,

Tried in vain to find an answer to this one.

I have heard that maybe some versions of Windows 7, such as Starter or Home Basic, will not permit the automatic switching to a stand alone graphic card (Nvidia or ATI Radeon).

I wish to find out if this is correct and if so, which versions are restricted? I use Photoshop and play HD video files up to 2GB in size, so I want to ensure switching is performed for improved graphical performance. Based on this finding, I can then decide what O/S to buy with a new laptop I'm about to purchase.

Thank you,

A:Which 7 works when switching from Intel on board to Nvidia/ATI gfx?

There is no such restriction. It is a function of the hardware and drivers. But really why would you chose to use Starter or Basic in the first place? That would make no sense. Home Premium should be the lowest version you should go for.

Hey all, I'm trying to set up dual monitors on my machine. I've got an ATI X300 Radeon card, and I'm trying to enable the onboard video card on the mobo for the other output. I've done it this way on other systems, so I'm hoping it's doable in this case, but I can't seem to get the onboard card enabled.

It's an Intel D915GSN board, which I've been unable to find a manual for. Intel's site has documentation for 7 different 915G-- boards, but none of them are "SN."

Anyone know offhand how to do this, or where I can find a manual?


A:Enable onboard video on an Intel D915GSN board

Is this from a Gateway computer? If so refer to the Gateway manual for yoru system.

But many of these don't allow you chose to enable both at the same time.

The solution to this is to run both monitors off the add-in video card. Most X300's support dual monitors but you may need a DVI to analog VGA convertor for the card.

I'd like to upgrade a PC which so far was running on WindowsXP to Windows7. The Microsoft Upgrade checker told me that the hardware is okay for Windows7 (2 GB RAM, CPU Intel Pentium4 2x3GHz).
To be on the safe side, I checked the Intel homepage regarding the mainboard D875PBZ and found out, that there seems to exist no driver for Windows7 (or 8/8.1).
What I am surprised about though is that the upgrade checker did not warn me in this regard.
I would assume that if there is no mainboard driver for Windows7 I definitely cannot upgrade this system from XP to Windows7, right?
On the other hand, what is the Microsoft Upgrade Checker good for if it does not recognize such essential things?
Any ideas as to what I can do?

A:XP Upgrade to Windows 7 - no driver for Intel board D875PBZ ?


Theoretically your board is capable of running "Windows 7" ( BIOS and chipset is okay ) and that is why "Upgrade Adviser" reported it to be compatible. I have successfully installed and managed to tun "Win7" on systems which has lower specifications than yours - such as one with 865 and 845 chipsets. However performance will be marginally low when compared to a modern system. SO i would highly recommend to upgrade your CPU (you can keep the old monitor and save cash )or buy a refurbished CPU which can run 7 fine.

However if you really want to check whether your system is capable of running 7, you can download genuine "Windows 7" install media from "Digitalriver" ( a Microsoft subsidiary ) and use that to do a test install on your system. Both download links and performance optimization tips are covered in the tutorial Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Hi I own a Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80Ghz running on 2 core processers it is a HP PC m7360n. And Running on Upgrade Version of Windows Vista Home Premium. I have 300watts Powersupply running with Radeon x1600 512MB PRO Version. Then I "want to upgrade to 700watts" Powersupply with out any issues from "300 watts power supply". Is it safe enough to install the powersupply? Also I gotten today Radeon HD 3870 512MB wich is require to upgrade 450 or higher? Is it ok go and head install the power supply? Or can my HD 3870 can or can't? run 300Max which I know is unsafe. :/ I don't want to take any chances. Or not I just goto a local computer store and pay for them to install it.

A:Installing 700w Power Supply to Intel 4 Board

I would go ahead and install the new power supply. You should have no issues as long as the new power supply has all the proper connectors your equipment needs such as a PCI-E connector (for the graphics card) and a 700W should. If you are worried about a 700W being too powerful for your old setup, don't be. Your PC will draw only what it needs from the power supply even if you install a 1200W PSU.

Each type of PSU connector can only be connected to its own type and they are keyed so it is hard to install them backwards. After installing all the new power connections, double check the data cables. Sometimes they can get loose by accident when you are installing the other cables.

If you haven't bought it yet, make sure you get a good quality PSU. This is one piece of equipment you don't want to go too cheap.

A:USB Board connecter to Motherboard??

Please clarify your problem and explain what you are trying to do. Are you trying to install this DIRECTLY to the mobo (not through anything else, like an existing USB port or a PCI slot) into the connection on your mobo? I don't think you are supposed to have 5 different wires for that but I can't really remember. I am lost please try to explain it and I might have some ideas for you.

A customer of mine came by, he had no use for this old computer he said, so instead of throwing it out maybe i could use it for something. D theres ALWAYS room in my place for another machine, the live machine count is currently at 8, dead machine count: 12 ) ok so I open the case and immediately notice its an older board (case also told me that) After carefully peeking under the heatsink I find an AMD Duron Proccesor. There are 2 Memory slots, the look like the pc-133 slots on one of the other machines I have, BUT nowhere can I find a Manufacturer/model name/number I cannot boot it without memory (i did try tho)so Im at a loss, how can i find out what make it is, so i can find out what memory it uses, so I can boot it to see if its any good?

so please suggest me whether the ddr3 graphic card is supported or not....
and also i chose zotac and asus 210 NVIDIA Geforce graphic card, so please suggest which is good to use...

A:Intel board dr31pr does supports ddr3 graphic card or not

yugandhar welcome to the Seven Forums.

It doesn't matter what type of memory is on the video card as it has no relation at all to what is used on the motherboard.

As far as that card you have selected, it is OK for multimedia uses but terrible for gaming. It is the lowest of the low end and even when it first came out (back in 2009), it was barely any better than the Intel graphics of the time.

Hi, I guess your pc config is enough to handle the latest edius 6.5 pro, but could you specify your Graphics card first and which edius you at going to use.

At the moment I run dual display through VGA, one is monitor, one is the laptop screen. However, I'm looking to use an additional monitor on top of this. I know I have an NVIDIA video card, and onboard Intel graphics. Are both of these being currently used to run a dual-display setup, or not? And would there be a way I could run 3 displays (2 externals + laptop) based on what I have in my system?
Running WIN7 64bit if that helps.
If you require more info to answer my question just ask.

I want to take my hard drive with the files (win98se) from a hp intel 500mhz celeron system and put it in a 1300mhz AMD board.
Before I do this should I remove most of the drivers etc before I switch over or should i leave it as is? I was just thinking that there would be a lot of conflicts if i don't prepare it for the move. What is the normal procedure? Thanks. Ed

Hi,I own a HP Omni 27-1015t  with a GeForce GT 540M card.  Unfortenuately, I am not able to install windows 10 due to compatilibity issues. After contacting HP support some months ago, I finally got around to removing the card today (as they suggested), but when I switch on the computer again, the display is blank. Is there anything outside of removing the card I need to do for the mother board graphics to kick in?  Only thing HP support suggested was to remove the card, install win10 and then put the card back into the computer (it should be win10 compatible).  I did try to install win10 with the card in, but was not able to get the correct graphics. Hoping for some good tip here.  Thank you. RegardsAre

So, my intel d875 got fried

I have found a few AGP slotted mobos and this one is what I may be going with

My question is will my new card provide the same features as the old and therefore be compatible? I checked to the best of my ability but need to be sure before I pull the trigger.

Thanks for the help

A:Motherboard fried, is this board compatible?


Well, no. The product addresses I followed show the Intel board is socket 478, while the Asrock is an LGA775. So. best guess is it will take your video card, but you'd have to spring for a processor.
You could also consider Matx size boards as they usually fit into Atx cases.
I don't know if it's worth it to directly replace your 875 board, but I do understand limited finances. The ASRock board does accept 184 pin DDR and AGP graphics, the only addition would be a new CPU. With another board you might have to buy 4 things, (CPU, board, RAM, and Video Card).

My laptop is dead now and need a mother board replacement.

Please also provide you best suggestions for finding the online store for the system board. I searched for the part but unable to find it.
Thanks in advance.

All parts can be ordered from local Toshiba ASP.
Get in contact with Toshiba service provider in your country and order such compatible part.

But note; it?s not cheap part! The motherboard replacement is always a costly procedure?

I am wondering if i need to reinstall the chipset drivers for a motherboard that I replaced with an identical board. Everything seems to work fine with boot up and such, but going into programs, the pc slows down and freezes for a bit and them goes back to normal for a short period of time before slowing down again. if anyone has any i deas, it would be great to hear them.
the original board died, and since its not my machine, i got many excuses to what may have happened. i looked over the CPU and RAM and didnt see anything out of the ordinary.

Hi all - need your help.

Just bought GEForce 6600 512mb card, and trying to install on PC. I've a motherboard MS-7093. Card is PCI-E.

Did all the things told to do - took off old drivers, put in card, installed new drivers - system froze, and had to reset. Basically, something in my machine is clashing with nVidia's driver. I can only assume that I have to disable the on board graphics - but can I find them in the BIOS? No!!!

Can anybody help me out here please?
