Sorry for the delay in help. If you haven't gotten your pc running yet i suggest you check the cpu. It sounds like it is over heating.

    You said the cpu was very hot & that you tried to reseat it. The cpu is like the heart of your pc & if it's not running properly then you will have very irratical behavior. Does your pc shut down after a min. or so? It's a safety feature to try to keep the mother board from frying. I'm not positive but I would say that if the processor or mother board is having problems then your hardware will be affected. The green light on the mother board will stay on even if the board is fried. It just shows that there is power going to it. The beeps you can pretty much disregard because pc's may not have the system speaker installed or it doesn't work leaving beeps unheard. So try to learn to not base much on them. They are convient tho! It can also be *********** board mike54. If possible try to swap out cpu first then mother board. If cpu doesn't help it's most likely *********** board.

    Good luck & please try to let me know.

No power through mb. CPU and case fans start then stop. Monitor does not come on, HD does not kick. HD access light is constant. green light in back stays on, but computer does nothing else.

make sure this hard drive is getting power

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit

one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

No beeps, no video, fans working,

no the floppy disk is not faulty, it is normal and required that the floppy disk drive light blink to indicate that the drive is working. And about the power on the power button might be stuck inside that is why it keeps turning on immediately you connect to main power

Power to everything but CPU fan and case fan - won't boot

Hi this is tech crazy

The solution to the problem is as follows

The main reason for CPU fan overworking or not working is due to the load we put on the syatem while operating.So,the first reason for fan not working may be due to the SMPS malfunctionality.Better check out for it.The reason if fan is working but Overworking is due to viruses is system.So go in for format

Hope this solution helps you

Asus motherboard p5b-mx wifi won't display vga

this can be caused by a number of issues the leading being RAM (no post beeps at all). before you do anything else pull all existing RAM and install a KNOWN GOOD STICK in their place and try again.if that doesn't work try resetting the mb (see the owner manual on how to do that) bios settings to defaults (this generally selects onboard video). if you have an installed video card within the system also remove that (even though you aren't using it). is that memory compatible you have there with the board? if its too slow the stick may be fine but mb may not "think" so. do you have keyboard "flash"? is the hard drive indicator constantly lit? how about cdrom drives and/or floppies? can you eject same? all this points to incompatible or "bad" memory as the main culprit.
