Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
Well, i got this computer and the motherboard is an Asus P5S800-VM and the power turns on and but there is no display in the monitor. Ive tried several monitors i still have the same problem and also i have tried using a AGP video card that has a slot where u can plug into a monitor but i get the same problem. Can anyone help me out?
Hello owners of the Asus P5S800-VM motherboard. This Asus board uses an integrated PCI graphics card. (That means it’s built into the board, you can not see it. Its part of the north bridge SiS661FX chipset). Everyone will need their manual so you can follow my instructions. If you no longer have your manual, please click on the ASUS P5S800-VM link below. A pop-up windows will open & you will need to choose the operating system from the dropdown menu. Than click Search.
This downloadable manual can only be read with Adobe reader software. If you need Adobe's software, you can download it from Adobe at this next link: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Shut down your systems; unplug the power cord from the PC's power supply. Open your case.
Please remove the AGP video card from the board; if any have one has one installed. (If you do not you will not receive display on your monitor. Once removed you now need to clear the bios/cmos.
On the board find the cmos/bios jumper as shown on page 1-21. Move the jumper to cover pins 2 & 3, count to 15 & move the jumper back to pins 1 & 2. One this is done. Close your case. Plug the power cord back into the power supply. Now we need to enter into the bios. Boot your PC & press the Delete key on your keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will open. Read the instructions at the bottom of the menu. This will show you how to move about while in the bios using your keyboard. (Can not use the mouse in here). Go to the title Advanced. Open "Chipset" page
2-17. See manual section 2.4.3 page 2-20. Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [AGP]
Save the bios & exit it. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the case power on /off button until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Open your case. Insert your AGP card. Make sure it is seated evenly & fully. Re-check all power connections & data connections before closing the case. Re-connect the power cord to the power supply. Boot your PC. You should have display. Install your graphics cards software. Check windows for any updates.
Life should be good. The ASUS P5S800-VM can only use a 1.5volt AGP card & nothing else. Check the manual for your AGP card & make sure it is 1.5v compatible. If its voltage is higher you will not receive display. This next link will show what a 1.5v graphics card looks like. Notice the copper contacts & its separation. Turn to manual page 1-20 for another 1.5v card with more than two separations.
Good luck everyone!

dr-afacan, You unfortunatley are not giving me a lot of info to work with. There could be several things to try. First check your cases front panel to Board connections. Then if they are correct I would swap out the power supply with anything compatible to check and see. If that PS is really OK. If you do not have the info for the board go here http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5S800-VM/e1767_p5s800-vm.pdf
Next step would be to either check the processor, possible BIOS settings or update. Or you unfortunatley just have a dead board. Asus has a good customer RMA system... Just some thoughts.....PCdok
