Put new vid card in pc it will boot but no pic put another vid card in it boots just fine

I have a asus p5n-e sli motherboard with a p4 ht 3.0 gig dual core processorm, a xfx 8600 gt 1 gig fatal1ty vid card running 2 sticks of 800 mhz pny gaming ram and a 400 watt power supply and windows xp pro. I have 5 fans 3 out 2 in. I am experiencing 2 different problems. The first is that 4 weeks ago I started having a problem where when I would run a game . like cod4 or AA the pc would freeze, lock up and need to be rebooted. The third week it would just boot up and after 5 min s of use it would permantly hang. I replaced the vid card i had with the 8600 gt 1 gig card. It worked beautifully for 2 weeks. Yesterday, when i went to reboot the pc it booted but no video. not even the bios would come up. I took the 8600 gt back to best buy and exchanged it for another one but the same thing. the pc boots up with no video. I put my old vid card back in ...its a 7300 le nividia card and now its working fine./ but now my nvidia 86oogt wont. any htoughts on that? also my 800 mhz ram used to show up as 800 mhz and now it only shows up as 667 mhz been all thru the bios ato no avail. I am very knowledgeable with my bios and did everything to get my ram bacjk to 800 mhz....any thoughts on that ?

    What kind of fan do you have installed? Cpu wise? it sounds like your cpu is overheating when your playing games. Due to high graphics. Try getting a better cooling system to stop the shutdowns.


    With the ram, is it because your Gpu shares some of the ram?


    This is common with chipsets and some GPUs.

I was having same problem that the memory wasn't recognized as 800mhz. My suggestion would be to look up the default voltages of your cpu and ram. Look up the default timings of your ram. Set all those in bios. I had to mess around with all the settings before getting a stable system. The end result was cpu overclocked at 20% at 2880mhz, ram at 800mhz, voltages on both cpu and ram upped one step,,,and i had to back off on the timings of the ram to 4-4-4-15-t2

Sounds to me a hardware problem. It seems to me your CPU's most likely having the problem where all sorts of high-end video adapters that you connect seems to give in. Try to consider to add a heatsink and use a thermal grease in between the CPU and the sink. After that, use a cooling fan wherein the heatsink dissipates heat the fan takes care of the heated air.

The CPU is actually the hard working hardware within our system unit. The faster it works the more heat it produces. The Power supply also is another factor when producing unwanted heat. So better use the fan on your enclosure also by connecting a molex into it to give power to the fan.

Asus p5n-e sli will no longer stay on for more then a few seconds


You go to AVIRA dot com and download the boot tool, or go to BITDEFENDER and run an online scan, you don't put in a new HDD just because you had a virus, it sounds like you had a problem and thought it was a virus.

Read you manual, plug in the Sata drive into Sata 1.

Do you mean BIOS post, if you don't even see the BIOS post, check your monitor with another PC.

There is only one correct power switch pin, a , + and - pin, how can you switch, there is no such thing as switching.

I have a p5n sli motherboard which refuses to boot


Go to page 2-30 section 2.4.5 in your manual.
If you are using the onboard graphics for your display set this to [PCI]. If you are using the PCI-E video card, set the bios to [PCI-E]. Save & exit the bios. You should have display after the system re-boots. If you still have no display & you are 100% sure your monitor functions than the video controller on the board is bad. This can not be repaired.

Good luck!

Usb device over current status detected will shutdown in 15 sec


You can upgrade your motherboard's BIOS with the latest version (downloadable at: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=KyHOsOKWujC2QguJ&content=download). This might help resolve the problem.
If not, then the problem you are having might be because of a bug in Windows 7, since it is not yet the final version.
If possible, you can test whether this is the case or not by backing up your system & installing Windows XP or Vista, and test to see if the problem will persist or not.

P5N-SLI


HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E%20SLI

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1474/1474_10.pdf
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.

Hi jlg371,
Did you know that Asus warrants their boards for three years?
Why buy a new board when you can have yours' replaced by Asus!
While inside your case, look at the parallel port. There is a white sticker there. Write down the information onto a piece of paper. Call Asus tech at: 1-812-282-2787 M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST.
It’s best to call in the morning. Get a case number from Asus. The way this works is you'll strip the board including the CPU. Box it & ship it back to Asus. You pay to ship it to Asus. (Signature Requested)!
Asus pays to ship back to you. Expect 2 weeks, 10 working days (Min) to pass before Asus ships your MB back to you.

Good luck jlg371!

Asus P5N-E SLI Mobo will not boot or post.


Hi bart, please re-check you're memory. See page 1-17 in you're user manual. (Read everything)!
You're Asus board can not use 184-pin DDR DIMM's.
Also check the QVL list for supported memory page's 1-18 & 1-19.
I did not see Corsair on either page.
You're board can only use 240-pin DDR2 memory. Please read the "Notes" at the top of page 1-18.
If everything (Regarding memory) is within the Asus specifications than clear the cmos/bios & re-boot again. If you're system still does not boot than remove one DIMM & try again.
Asus warrants their boards for three years. Call Asus tech at
1-812-282-2787 EST, IL 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The call is on you but the service is free. It's worth every dime.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
Would you be kind enough to let me know what Asus suggested? (If it comes to that).

Mike
