Gigabyte G1Assassin 2 Motherboard/Corsair AX 860i won't power up

Q: Gigabyte G1Assassin 2 Motherboard/Corsair AX 860i won't power up

I have put together a new build with the Gigabyte Assassin 2 m/board and a Corsair AX 860i PSU. On start up the PSU clicks out and won't run. The PSU Self test is good - green light and the fan is running, however when I connect all the peripherals the PSU just drops out and will not run. I have double checked all connections from the CPU, M/board, memory, graphics cards. This is all in a Thermaltake Level 10 case, my next check will be the hard drive connections - hot swap bays. Any help will be really appreciated.

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.)

Hi guys,
Just got a new Gigabyte GA-7VRXP motherboard and tried to run it with 256meg Corsair XMS2700 DDR, but it is giving me major problems. Reformatted the h/d (Maxtor D740) but Windows 2000 would not install AT ALL (blue screen errors on every attempt), Windows 98SE did go on eventually but again it keeps crashing and locking up, can't install anything else (ie directx 8.1!)
Any ideas? I feel it could be the memory or else the power supply (also have a Geforce 4 ti4400) which is a new 300watt model (supposed to be a good brand... but cant remember the name as Im now at work)

Anyone know of any incompatibility issues here?
Thanks for any comments

A VERY frustrated Donk3.

Seems to have the same problem as you, but other people have it working. Also seems the GA-7VRXP has some RAM compatibility issues.

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

This is not me forte,
When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the summary of the blue screen.
Several members study the mini dumps and can tell you the culprit/s.
They ask for 5 or 6 mini dumps to see the trends.
zip them down and attach to post or if too big U/L to a website and

Hi there,

I've recently got this baby up and running but I've been getting LOADS of blue screens, some I can see as "Memory_Management" and some I don't recognise. I don't do any overclocking and everything is left at default, FSB, Voltage, Ram Timings, etc.

I also did a Prime95 Blend Torture Test and it came up with one error after I think around 2 hours or so of testing.

I've monitored the temperature closely and the System and CPU temperature never got above 50C. The GPU runs hotter but I think never more than 100C. I have no idea about RAM, PSU or HD though but I mean it's not boiling though its warm after hours of load.

I've also tried upping the CPU and RAM voltage to 1.35V (From 1.325V) and 2.1V (from 1.9V) but no improvements.

Anybody have any idea what's wrong?!


A:C2D E6300, Gigabyte 965P-DS3, Corsair XMS2-6400 5-5-5-15 & WD3200KS Problem..

You might email Gigabyte. The way I'm reading this:

You might need the 5-5-5-12 timings rather than the 15.

The DDR2 800 boards have been pretty picky with RAM. Some more than others. I've heard about this board being extremely picky.

hey guys, does anyone if there are any other drivers for this board? i'm looking at this page after selecting 'driver' and 'win7 64 bit'. i only see 'audio', 'chipset' 'LAN' and 'RAID'. on the other boards i've seen, the driver software was much more comprehensive and contained several different pieces of software.

what's the main driver i need to install after installing win7 for the motherboard? just wondering if i'm missing something and need to install something else for the 'main features'? or are there main features found in the BIOS before win7 boots up? how does win7 recognise the board btw? does the board have drivers built in already? how can winxp recognise mboards that have been made very recently?

thanks guys

A:Gigabyte motherboard: P55M-UD4 some questions on motherboard software

Those are all the drivers you need, and really all any motherboard needs to work. You also have some Utilities under the drop down menu of "Download Type" but these are optional tweaking and similar utilities not required for proper operation of the system. Any version of Windows will have limited driver support, enough to install and run until the correct drivers are installed, or for a SATA or RAID controller under Windows XP drivers are loaded via the F6 prompt during the initial stages of the XP install to allow it to detect the hard drive. There are no drivers built into the hardware itself.

A:Power Supply Wont Power up - Gigabyte ga-ma790fx & AMD Phenom 9850

if I read the specifications right on your mobo... it implies that it has the 4 pin PCI-e input(power) but it also has the 8pin ATX power conector. (it may be simply removing a cap that is actually right next to the 4 pin connector, thus making it an 8 pin connector (thats how it was on my mobo)

Try using the 8pin power with your new PSU, see if that works.

Does the HX850 support 3rd generation Intel processors? I see in the specifications here that it is fully compatible with 4th gen intel processors but what about i5-3470.

Does it have the power connectors to support this microATX motherboard - MSI H61M-P31-W8?

Also, will this power supply fit in this mid tower case - Cooler Master Silencio 452, dimensions and specifications here -

Hell all!

I just finished building my new CPU and am running into some issues... this one is regarding my evident trouble with Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x 4gb) RAM and my Asus M4A89GTD PRO MOBO.

Upon system startup if I let it go itself it freezes very wuickly, before Windows can even load. Each time i start up I have to hit my MemOK! function on the MOBO and it will load without issue, thus why I am here now.

So obviously the RAM works and works well with the CPU build but I am trying to find a way to get it to load correctly without having to leave my case open to hit the MemOK! function. Ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I would disconnect/reconnect the mobo power cable...seeing if it may just be a loose wire (please do that with the system OFF and unplugged...we would like to see you post back here...). Otherwise, have you had any power surges in your neighborhood recently? Do you keep the system on 24/7?

Packard Bell, when it was here in the States, was very propietary as far as their case designs. Not sure whether an off-the-shelf motherboard will fit into their cases. That power supply might be questionable also. You can contact PB Europe here and ask them before spending your hard-earned cash.

Are they overheating cpu's
you don't say if the fan comes back on
does the board at least boot to bios
If the answer is yes to first one
If you have a spot for another fan to plug into try that get it running so you can get to bios
I tried to get manual from gigabite site no go there
so I can't say if there is a bios option for fan controll
next check to see if this dealer stuck some bad program on machine that is shutting down the fan settings may be goofy

A:Gigabyte motherboard won't boot

ok, your psu seems to be the only thing you haven't swapped out.
the 24-pin thing is the main connector that supplies power to your mobo so it DEFINITELY IS NEEDED. However your mobo may only have a 20-pin port, so assuming your psu has a 20-pin and a 4-pin attachment to give you the 24-pin option (for newer boards) then you should connect it.
The knock could well have damaged the ram slots though.

So I have a gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 5.0) and basically in the bios utility I click update bios from Gigabyte Server and there comes up my model name and then an option of "AMD 760G, award bios, VER.FA" and really i just wanted to know if this is an update for my bios because naturally I do not want to mess up my computer.

So yeah any help would be appreciated.

A:Gigabyte Motherboard Update Help

Download and run Speccy as linked in my signature, click on the Motherboard on the left hand side then expand the BIOS section. That will give you your current BIOS version, unfortunately I'm having trouble getting on the Gigabyte website to check the most revision recent available. Is there any specific reason you're contemplating updating your BIOS? If all's working well I'd just leave it as is.

A few things to consider

when you are adding a second hard drive to the comp you have to tell the computer which is the primary and which is the slave. Its a lot more than hooking another one up and "let 'er rip" situation.

A:Corsair PSU upgrade does not post, powers up 5 seconds power...

I have an addendum to add to this thread.  To refresh, my questions focused on a possible mis-match of PSU and motherboard specs:  Is it an ATX 12 Volt 2.0 and above spec problem or a Wattage cap problem?  I posted my questions to the Corsair PSU Forum concurrently and I paste here now, a response to RAM GUY.   "Hi RAM GUY,Sorry I could not reply until now.  Thank you for clarifying the difference between the ATX 2.0 spec and 2.01spec in that the Negative -5 Volt Rail is not present in the 2.01 spec andbeyond.  As I mentioned previously, the Thermaltake PSU that has beenrunning in my 2009, HP i7 Tower for the last 7 months says 12 Volt ATX 2.2on the case and even though the OEM HP power supply says 12 Volt ATX2.0 in spec literature I found on Google, the actual PSU I have does nothave any ATX spec rating on the case.  So I think it is safe to say, mymotherboard does not require the Negative -5 Volt Rail in that it playednicely with 12 Volt ATX 2.2 spec up until recently.Though theoretically there is supposed to be no limit on the amount ofWattage you can use to power your motherboard because the motherboardis suppose to use only what it needs and cap the rest, it appears that OEMscan dial up Wattage limitations if they deem necessary.  Could be as simple HP, not wanting to compete with some of it's HPsProfessional Work Stations, thereby caps Wattage on some Pavilion EliteSeries models to prevent them from becoming a much less expensivesolution.In any case, I think with all available information digested, it's not aboutATX specs, but rather my HP motherboard has a Wattage limit of 650 Wattsthough I think I read someone else got the same motherboard going with750 Watts but I don't remember where to find that posting."I am back up and running, yeah !Thank you again Lasvegaswireman !

My board have dual BIOS so I guess it means the spare(?) BIOS is the backup in case of crash. If that's the case do I have to set it up or is it loaded with the defaults?

A:My Gigabyte B75 motherboard with dual BIOS

Yes its basically your spare tire as far as motherboards go. Lets say you are flashing your BIOS and the power goes out. In most situations with a single Bios, this will mean your MOBO is basically dead. If this happens, you simply restart the PC and it does it automatically.

I'm recently built a HTPC utilizing the following motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard. Everything works great with the exception of the audio. I am trying to run regular 2 channel stereo to my television, but the volume level is extremly low. I have to turn the tv up all the way to be able to hear anything. I used the same wire and connected it to my laptop and everything works fine.

I have double checked the installation based on the motherboard owner's manual and even tried connecting to other audio output ports on the motherboard. Nothing seems to work. Obviously the tv has it's own internal amplifier and will get plenty loud. I have updated all of the drivers and played with all of the settings for hours but nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have just re-installed an old PC with Windows Vista. Was running Linux.

I have not been able to find the driver for the 2nd HDD controller on my Gigabyte motherboard.

The main controller is working (3 SATA drives attached) but the motherboard has an onboard PATA driver with RAID1 or 0. I have two drives attached to that (no RAID) but unable to find the correct driver.

I believe the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-8I915P-MF. However, the driver from that page says my computer does not meet the minimum requirements.

Any advice on narrowing down the search for these drivers please?

I have a GA-M68MT-S2 Rev. 3.1 mobo. I am having problems with the computer locking up at times so I wanted to update the BIOS from FB to FC. I put the file to (got it from Gigabyte website for that board for the OS I am running) ... update the BIOS on a flash drive. I have it in the USB port on the mobo. When I go to Q Flash and ask it to update the BIOS it tells me drive not found. Can't do it while in windows either ... what can I do???

A:Can't Update BIOS On Gigabyte MotherBoard

1. Is the flash drive formatted FAT file system
2. QFlash

Updating the BIOS with the Q-Flash Utility

A. Before You Begin

From GIGABYTE's website, download the latest compressed BIOS update file that matches your 1. motherboard model.

Extract the file and save the new BIOS file (e.g. X79UD7.F1) to your USB flash drive or hard drive. Note: 2. The USB flash drive or hard drive must use FAT32/16/12 file system.

Restart the system. During the POST, press the <End> key to enter Q-Flash. Note: You can access Q-Flash 3. by either pressing the <End> key during the POST or pressing the <F8> key in BIOS Setup

So, I installed the BIOS through a software they have for WindowsClick to expand...

Windows based bios updaters often cause problems. A much better method for a gigabyte board is to use Qflash which is built into the bios. This removes windows from the task; it is the only way I update a gigabyte board.
With the gigabyte dual bios setup, it is not that big of a deal. If you had gotten a bsod while updating the bios, when you restarted, the backup bios would take over. It is a big deal when updating on other boards ie asus, asrock, etc without the dual bios.

In a previous post I had a problem with the memory sticks. I have installed 4 512mb sticks and system is up and running fine except system only shows 1 gig installed instead of 2 gigs. Is there a reason why I can't get 2 gigs to run??? I am using Linux Ubuntu 7.04 with and athlon xp2500 processor and memory is pc3200 running at 400mhz. 2 sticks which are in slot 3 and 4 are Kingston kvr400x64c3ak2. Slots 1 and 2 have the original 512mb dual sided sticks that I had from the beginning, and worked fine. Thanks

I am installing a Gigabyte GA EP 45c DSP3R motherboard. The ethernet ports on the rear I/O plate have metal shields covering the ports. Should they be bent back in towards the case or should they be bent forward extending from the plate? There are no instructions given in the gigabyte manual.

What is the purpose of the shields? If they are bent into the case they will contact the metal covering on the ethernet port modules. Are they providing a ground contact?

My mate just got his new pc. It has a Gigabyte M55SLI-S4 Rev 2.0 motherboard.
Basically, his sound is not working properly. We have updated all the drivers for the sound and it didn't clear up the problem.

Anyway, all his speakers are connected properly and produce sound, all but his front speakers (green jack). In this first screenshot, it says it's not connected properly.

So, he changed an option which changed the (green jack) to power speakers, which then recognizes the front speakers, but still no sound.(Screenshot below) We have no idea where to go to from here.

Hi people.
Can anyone tell how I would go about updating my BIOS?
I need to update it to fully support my AMD FX-4100 Processor.
This is the motherboard
I have gone onto where it says downloaded and I downloaded the latest BIOS
But when I clicked run nothing happened, Is this meant to happen?
and I don't want to have to flash my BIOS as a lot of places say its a bad thing to do, unless that is the only way of doing it?
Also, how do you find out what is your current BIOS? I thought it told you when you went in the BIOS but I couldn't see it anywhere?

Please could someone help me. Thanks!

my build is just going all over the place. first i was going with an AMD setup, and then i wanted to upgrade this and that, and now i'm finding myself buying an intel setup.

i'm going to be getting an intel GA-P35-DS3L motherboard. i have a very important question about it in regards to will it work with my setup.

I have NO way of telling if my dvd rom drive is supported. when i power it on, and it flashes, the bios drivers need to have my dvd rom drive supported or it won't recognize it on startup. and when i try to install anything like an OS or something, i'm screwed so hard. so i need to know if an HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8162B drive will be supported and recognized. if it isn't, i'm stuck with having to buy a drive that IS supported.

No video output on iGPU or GPU on Desktop. Motherboard not posting. GPU fan spins at 100%. I've tried removing all RAM sticks and tried each one by itself. I've removed all hard drives. I've reset GPU and tried without GPU. I feel like I've tried everything at this point. It's a new power supply. I've tried two other power supplies as well.

A:Gigabyte Motherboard GA-8TRC410M-NF (Memory upgrade)

I really think upgrading your memory now would be a waste of money. You would be better off waiting till you can afford a new motherboard, CPU, etc. & then get the amount of RAM that you would like then.

Your current RAM socket on the motherboard has probably been superseded, so getting new RAM now would mean it would not suit a new motherboard later, so whatever you would spend now would be wasted.

I am just wondering wether if i can put a Powercolor X50XT video card inside the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI motherboard? i really want this board because of its SLI ability down the track for upgrades and i also don't have to give up another precious PCI slot. (because the X850XT needs 2 slots cause of the cooler and seeing that this board has 2 PCI-Ex16 slots, and i can't run this card in SLI it would be perfect)

So is this possible or do i have to get a non-SLI motherboard to use My ATi card?


Does this motherboard support Seagate NCQ drives?


A:Powercolor X850XT in Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI Motherboard?

I don't understand the question. Ar you asking if the SLI board will operate with just one GPU card? If so the answer is yes. If that's not the question then clarify please. The nForce4 SLI chipset supports both the Seagate and the Maxtor DM10 drives.

I have a gigabyte motherboard and love to keep everything up to date. So when I go to the motherboards driver update page, I would love it, if they kept fresh onboard realtek LAN drivers. This motherboard uses the Integrated Realtek RTL8111E LAN driver. The driver gigabyte offers is from 2011. I was having issues with it, so I decided to go to the source. I went to and saw that my driver was past 2 years outdated . Luckily, has a download page with LAN drivers, so I grabbed a fresh batch from 2013 and the problem I was having seems to have been fixed. I will include two pics, one of the old driver, and one of the new. I was wondering if A. this is a common occurrence and B. what do you guys do about this?

A:Gigabyte motherboard update page sure is out of date

The drivers for my Gigabyte motherboard (and an ASUS in another PC) are dated 2012.

Many manufacturers do not update drivers unless there is a specific need, such to fix a problem, support new hardware, OS, etc. I used to do support (for 10 years) on the Dell forums and as a general rule Dell did not issue driver updates unless a device had a problem or did not meet their published specs. Dell like all PC vendors are in the business of selling new PC's.

Using non-vendor Drivers can be an issue with some PC's, as some PC vendors have custom implementations and custom drivers.

Each one has to be handled on a case by case basis. Finally the old adage "if it ain't broke don't fix it" applies to many.

"Just to put in here for nForce users, nForce boards do not support AHCI (with the exception of nForce boards that include onboard graphic cards), and also don't send the TRIM command for SSDs.
Also, they don't hav AHCI support, right? Is there a way around this?

MoBo ~ Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H on Windows 7
I have a Belkin USB Hub which is connected to one of the rear MoBo USB ports and works fine.
I also have a USB Wireless Adapter which is plugged into one of the Hub Ports and works fine.
To tidy wiring up a bit, I removed the Wireless Adapter USB plug from the Hub and plugged directly into MoBo USB and Wireless Adaptor stops working.
Even if I plug the Wireless Adaptor into the MoBo USB port which the Hub was using still does not work.
Plug the Hub into the MoBo USB Port and and the Adapter into the Hub again and it works OK.
Can anyone explain why the Wireless Adaptor will not work when plugged directly into the MoBo but works OK in plugged into a Hub which is plugged into the MoBo?

A:Strange USB Port scenario with Gigabyte Motherboard

As a start I would go to the Device Manager and look at the Properties of each of the devices and see if there is a "Ports" Tab, then see if there are any options to change the port location.

If the wireless adapter has any program settings I would check all of those to see if there is anything that can be changed.

A:Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2C Motherboard Problem

Test the RAM, one stick at a time using MEMtest86. It could be a motherboard fault, the RAM, or even the power supply.

DUAL channel will only work with identical sticks of RAM (ie: same size...and preferably same speed). Speed won't matter as much, as most motherboards will then simply run at the speed of the slowest stick.

A:OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro Power Supply V.S. Corsair Professional Series HX650W

Corsair is generally considered to be a slightly more reliable brand. I personally would suggest a single 12V rail with high amperage. Do you require a modular PSU? If not, then the Corsair 650TX is cheaper than it's modular counterpart, the 650HX.

I think that for a single PowerColor HD 4850 the Corsair 550VX will be more than sufficient. However, if you're looking to keep the system more "forward compatible" (not future proof because nothing is), the Corsair 650TX should do great. I would think that the 650TX would be the best choice for CrossFire with 2 HD 4850s.
