problem with gigabyte mobo

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.homebuilt (More info?)

anyone using the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI, ATX, DDDR400, PCI-E, Gbit Lan, USB
2.0, 1394, AC'97 Audio, 8 x SATA, Raid

just everything I start up from cold it restarts again. I turned on errors
and it blue screens to say IRQ must be equal or something ? any ideas ?

    Yes power supply 5 volts is not stable enough, you must have a good 400
    watts or greater PSU which can supply at least 2.0A on the 5volt rail.

    I have a good PSU, it is +5v and is says 30A ? there is a gigabyte power
    add-on I have installed with blue lights - but as you can see I am a techo
    idiot so can not describe these things well.

    Many board now ( maybe yours too?) use more 12V power than
    5V. An amerage rating on a label may not be evidence of an
    actual capacity as some makes have deceptive labels/specs of
    only peak capacity (and even then seem overrated). If this
    is a generic power supply the odds are good it needs
    replaced. Take voltage readings with a multimeter.

    Yes +5 volt VSB should be 2.0A not the +5 Volt rail. other than the actual
    external drives CD/DVD/HDD the mother boards draw very little on the 12v
    side really, I have some 650 watt N+1 dual hot swap PSU's here and they are
    unable to power an Athlon 64 system or the LGA775 P4 as they only deliver
    1.0a on the +5 Volt VSB. Symptoms are exactly as you describe, yet a single
    680 watt Thermaltake W0049 PSU has no problems at all if you follow the link
    you will see the +5 Volt VSB is 2.0A.

    I too am using this board and I’m having the exact same trouble using
    XP with SP2. I’m yet to try a reinstall or other things, but nforce4
    platform drivers from the nvidia site have proven to be innefective of
    curing this problem.

    The fact it’s bringing up an IRQ not equal to or something means it’s
    an IRQ thing i know that, as to what’s causing it I’m yet to figure it
    out.
