          Hi Vaibhav,


          Does your system boot? If no, then


          Check if your processor is on the compatibility list and make sure to check which bios version does the board

          requires for the cpu to work properly:

          Then make sure that the memory you are using has the features as mentionned on this page:
          Website: http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gsa/sb/CS-025924.htm
          Note: Changing the memory voltage and speed may affect the board and void your warranty.


          If both of these components meet the requirements, then continue to the next steps.

          1. Remove the memory
             Does the board issue any beeps? If yes, how many?


          2. Then try a bios recovery using a formatted USB media.


          Instructions for Recovery BIOS Updates
          In the unlikely event that a BIOS update is interrupted, it is possible the BIOS may be left in an unusable state. The recovery process requires the chassis to be opened to move the onboard BIOS Configuration Jumper. WARNING: This process is intended to be performed by a trained technician.

          Recovery with Formatted USB Stick

          1. Copy the recovery file (*.bio) to a formatted usb disk.




          2. Place the usb disk in the target system.
          3. Shut down the system and unplug AC power.
          4. Open the chassis and remove the BIOS Configuration Jumper. See the Technical Product Specification for details

          including the location of this jumper.
          5. Power the system on.
          6. Wait 2-5 minutes for the update to complete. When the usb drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery

          code into the FLASH device.
          7. System will either turn off when the recovery process is completed or it will prompt you to turn off the

          8. Remove usb disk
          9. Replace the BIOS Configuration Jumper.
          10. Restart system.

          If there is still no boot, switch the bios jumper to the Maintenance Mode.
