Gigabyte Motherboard won't post

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am rebuilding some old PCs and one of my motherboards is acting a bit strange. Normally, in my experience, if a motherboard is dead you dont really get power to anything. When I start this one up all peripherals come online, hard drive spins up, CPU cooler spins up (and remains spinning) and GPU fans spin up. There is no beep, but that's because there is no on bored speaker on this system. At them moment I have tried multiple GPUs from a 8600 gt, GTX 1060, and a Vega 64... all with the same results. 

 

I have tried CPUs from another machine, AMD Athlon x64 duel core

 

I have changed the motherboard battery. 

 

I have tried multiple PSU units

 

I have tried multiple monitors

 

I have tried running the RAM in every configuration possible including duel channel and quad channel. 

 

All seems to do the same thing. 

 

The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 

 

Any ideas?

Try using the on-board graphics, if there are some. You may have a dead pcie slot(s).

Try a different pcie slot for the graphics card?

This board has no on board graphics.

You can buy a motherboard speaker, for example here, and see if you get any beeps/error code.
