Hi,

I encountered a problem today
Till morning everything was fine.
But in evening when i started my PC no display was shown.

I restarted again same problem persisted.

I opened my cabinet replaced RAM again started but no display not even BIOS

I took out BIOS battery for sometime and again inserted it again no Display.

I used Jumper to clear BIOS but again no Display.

I checked different SMPS but still same problem.

I detached every hard disk RAM and Battery then attached one by one and tested still no beeps and no display.

3 Beeps came only once when i removed everything and put Jumper in reset mode.

Post that after putting Jumper in Normal Mode it didn't made any beep and no display too

Kindly help what to do in this case?

It will help to know your system model or specs.
Besides the beeps, is there any other signs of life...lights, fans spinning, etc?
Yes Fans are spinning lights are on in motherboard but no display and no Num Lock
I think POST is stuck.

Specs
Processor Pentium D 805
RAM 2 GB DDR 2 X 2 No.
Hard Disk 1 TB
Motherboard Intel D945GCL inbuilt Graphic Card
No external Graphic Card

I wouldn't spend a cent or time trying to fix that PC. You could get a working hand me down (free) system newer that one.
I have Laptop
It's just my old PC, which i want to be running.

Can CMOS Battery do this?
I mean if it's dead would it prevent BIOS from booting?

Nope.
If the CMOS battery dies, you just get a message about Date/Time reset or something similar.
I took it to expert he tested all IC in motherboard
He told me that BIOS chip has gone mad
So he replaced it with another
But the problem is i have Pentium D 805 Processor and new BIOS only supports processors above Core 2 Duo

I wanted to ask can i downgrade BIOS or entirely flash a newer one by downloading it from Intel Website?

Kindly help in this
 
On Intel D945GCL, to downgrade a BIOS to an older version you perform, exactly the same steps as for upgrading to a newer version.
A newer BIOS, usually supports previous released CPUs on a motherboard.
Do you know the BIOS version on the chip installed?

Download and place the BIOS file on a USB flash drive.
Power the computer on.
Press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup.
Go to the Boot > Boot Display Options menu.
Enable Display F7 to Update BIOS.
Press F10 to save and exit.
The systems reboots.
During boot, when the F7 prompt is displayed, press F7 to enter the BIOS Flash Update tool.
Select the USB flash drive and press Enter.
Select the file and press Enter.
Confirm you want to update the BIOS by pressing Enter.
Wait for the update to complete.
Remove the thumb drive.
Restart the computer.

True it should support previous CPU too

IDK what that vendor did
My Old CPU is not showing display it is working fine on other motherboards
Vendor says it's because of BIOS flash i did
Now it will support only Core 2 and higher

I'll check again and see whether i can bring it back to life

Thanks for reply bro
