I'm having trouble getting a brand new, bare bones Intel D845GVAD2 board to boot. Have tried 2 different power supplies (atx12v compliant) & 2 cpu's - (2 x Celeron 2.2 ghz, 400mhz).
Currently, with second new 500w supply, power supply fan won't even turn on when connected to board. It does when connected to old eMachine IM845GL board.
It occurred to me to check the battery on the new intel board, as reported shelf life is 3 years, and the board may be older than that. I read 3.00v on a new batter in the old board, and 2.85v on the battery that came with the new intel board. Could that be the reason the board is not booting?
