My brother uses DG41WV desktop board with Intel Dual Core 3.0GHz E5700 processor & 2 GB DDR3 RAM. The PC has SMPS of 450 Watt ATX-P4.
When turning on the machine by pressing Power Switch, the processor fan, on-board LED & HDD LED of chasis is turned on but there is no beep sound in in-built speaker & also there is no video in Monitor whether it is connected to VGA port of the board or to the VGA Card. I found all other components like HDD, RAM, Processor, VGA Card & SMPS are in ok condition. The PC was running till last Monday. I checked the parts in different machines. Then, I cleared the CMOS but the problem still exists. Now, what should I do to solve this problem? Please help...
Just because the setup works for a short time doesn't mean all the bits are compatible and will continue to work for an extended period without causing damage. Does the memory comply specifically with Intels requirements for this board as specified here: Intel Desktop Board DG41WV System memory ?
Additionally, how does the board perform without the discrete graphics card installed (ie just using built in graphics)?
Thanx for replying. It was Zion DDR3 1333MHz which was given to us from the shop. The machine was bought on 28/11/2011. Isn't it a long time? Anyway, from the purchasing date, video output is connected to the VGA Card, so the in-built graphics has not been checked & now it is not in the condition to check!
