Altering memory settings may sometimes result in this type of behaviour and in some situations, the motherboard becomes un-recoverable and there is no other solution than to return the board to your reseller.
However before you do so you may try the following:
( In some situations when the board - not same model - was totally dead this has worked for me)
Clear CMOS by removing the motherboard battery and power supply and put them back about 30 minutes or so.
Check if the motherboard is booting now.
If the system starts at least and the fans are all spinning and the led lights on the board is all on, then you may try to do a bios recovery.
Download the bios recovery file from this link:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/license_agr.aspx?url=/17806/eng/ID0107.BIO&ProductID=2930&agr=Y&sType=&PrdMap=&DwnldId=17806&strOSs=38&OSFullName=OS%20Independent&lang=eng
Copy the file onto an empty non-bootable cd or usb disk. (Note, the .BIO file downloaded should be the only file on the media, and it shoud not be a bootable media)
Insert media (usb or cd) in the system, power off the system. Remove the bios configuration jumper completely.
Power up the system and the system will boot automatically through the media and you can see the blinking activity light on the usb or on the cd drive. In some situations you may have a video output on the screen and you will be able to see the progress.
When prompted, shut down the system, put the bios jumper back to the normal position, and power on the system.
From here everything should work fine. Remember, once you managed to get to bios, set the bios to default settings, save and exit.
Note: The bios recovery may take some time 2-15 minutes.
If the above has not work, try with different usb pen drive.
If still nothing, then there is not other way. Better you contact your reseller and RMA the board.
Hope this will be useful.
hi hakan! thanks for your response to my memory issue regarding changing the memory settings on my DG45ID. strangely enough, my mate (who doesn't know the board and it's known issues) suggested that changing the memory settings may have burned out the RAM cards and said i should get another set of RAM and try it again. this corresponded with your advice, so i will purchase the same RAM that you got and give it another go. i'll let you know how it works out. thanks for your help and advice, i am very grateful! dave, london.
I found solution ,If you get CAS Latecy 6 800 MHZ memory,It will turn on it.
I bought KVR800D2N6K2/4G and it is boot.This memory is listed under compatible memory list on DG45ID and DG45FC
After memory install;i made bios default and 667 memory work again

I have the same story as a lot of people changed DG45ID memory settings to manual.
Well, as to your advise about LC6-memory I bought Patriot PSD22G80026 that is LC6 type.
I istalled it and... NOTHING!!! The same s..t!
It seems that only KINGSTON can help with their VALUE RAM LC6.
I just want to notice all others to try to use ONLY KINGSTON.
I will try again when I will return from vacation.
If KINGSTON will not help - I will just change the board to a new one...
Good luck to everybody!

What did you buy,was it in Intel compatible memory list?Because I bought PNY memory,it didnt work .I checkedthis list and order it.It worked.
Hi, I tried Kingston KVR800D2N6/512, 256 Mb (I thought same series will help independently of memory volume). Just didn't want to buy expensive modules...
It didn't help...
Finally, today I gave back my DG45ID to computer shop for warranty investigation.
I hope they will replace it.
Good luck, my friend!
Hi all. Same problem with my board. I have a KVR800D2N6/2G and its the reason why I changed the settings to 800mhz (manual). if anybody has the solution, kindly post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I think INTEL should do something about this issue.
The seems to be fixed in Intel BIOS revision 117. Make sure you are using Intel BIOS revision 117 or higher.
Check out release notes of Intel BIOS revision 117 at:
same problem from URUGUAY , no solution
INTEL MUST BE RESPONSABLE FOR MAKING A PRODUCT WITH NO RECOVERY
OPTION AFTER CHANGE JUST ONE MEMORY PARAMETER
THIS IS INCREDIBLE, MAYBE THEY NOT GIVE THE USERS TO HAVE THE CANCE
TO CHANGE ENY VALUES OR PUT A LABEL WITH WARNINGS OR SOMTHING
I TINK WE MUST PRESENT A PUBLIC COMPLAIN SIGNED WITH ALL USERS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM
MY OPINION TANKS
