          What PSU do you have?


          The Q6600 that is supported on the DG33FB is the SLACR not SL9UM.


          Check that the RAM is in the right slot(s) DIMM 0 (blue).

          Take out TV tunner and Graphic card and try with the on Board Graphic.

            i am fuel's psu



            i have taken out both tv tunner and graphic card

            but no use

            and i also have checked by inserting one by one

            problem is still exists


            do you think that it is due to overheating of psu?

              Its junk then get a better make one with 80% Efficiency from:




              Cooler master (not Elite or eXtreme models)


              Thermaltake (mainly the Toughpower models)



              PC Power and Cooling


              And as I said check what Q6600 you have the SL9UM sSpec Number will not work in the intel dg33fbc only the SLACR sSpec Number will.

                  may be


                  The power supply is damaged


                  not enough Power Capacity


                  very bad Power Efficiency


                  I recommend buying a new power

                  If possible, high Value Product(expansive ...)
