I have a gigabyte motherboard GA-965p-Ds3. i noticed ever since i bought the motherboard about 3 months ago that when you turn it on it turns on for a sec then pauses then continues to boot. i figured this was just normal. now 3 months later i go to boot up and it boots for a half second then shuts off and never trys to continue. I tryed checking all connections, i checked the powersupply and the switch. they all checked out good. I cleared cmos and still nothing. Is my motherboard fried????? ive checked pretty much everything. the processor is an Intel core 2 duo.

Hey this might sound like a stupid question but after the first try and it turning off did you try firing it up again, if you did give the motherboad manufacture a call. IT just sounds like you disconnected the psu cable and its turning on and then off so it should work after the 2nd try. Hope that helps sorry if its short but I'm on my phone.

ok

Processor - Intel E6400 2.13 Ghz core 2 duo
HDD- Maxtor sata 200 gig
Video card - Nvidia vcg7600gxpb
Pwersupply- ATX thermaltake 700watt 12v


I checked for it grounding to the case and its not, the powersupply i tested was good. hell its brand new. I honestly thing the motherboard or the processor is dead. i just for the hell of it unplugged the 4 pin connector and the ccomputer turnes on and stays on but when i plug the connector back in it does the same it just turns on for a split second then shuts off. Dont worry i have a ground strap and the computer is unplugged before i go in it :0)

you probably have a short then, and the motherboard or PS detects and kills everything before your fry something or overload the PSU. Its a good thing.

I had the same thing happen with a floppy drive, that was shorting. After trying to figure it all out I unplugged EVERTHING but the mobo and it booted perfectly.

I then began plugging everything back in, HD's, CDROM, fans, when I got to the floppy..., BAM! it would not boot just light up shortly and die. A SHORT!, bad floppy...., spank it,,,not really

i tried unplugging everything and seeing if it would boot. nope still nothing. the motherboard is about half an inch off the case so its not grounding to the case. i guess its internally dead. ill just break down and buy a new board and processor since i dont know which is bad and dont want to ruin a new board by putting a bad processor in it.
