    No display in D945GCPE

    Sandeep Sethi

      Hi, I am using D945GCPE with core 2 duo E7500 2.93 with win XP SP3. Recently while working all of the sudden the display went off though the system was still having power. I restarted but the display wasn't there. I have checked the wires and monitor and they are working fine. The problem is that if I start the system after a gap of 10-12 hours, the display comes for a minute or so (windows starts loading) and then suddenly goes off. If i restart again, the display doesn't comes at all (unless it is given a time gap of few hours). The repair person told me, its a problem of some socket heating and I need to replace my motherboard. As D945GCPE isn't available anymore, I was suggested DG941TY as replacement.


      I wanted to know if there's a way out or I need to change my motherboard. If I go for a change will I need to reinstall XP and will I loose my data in C drive.


      Will appreciate your help.
