Question about ASUS M2A-VM (0610839149438) Motherboard
Brand new m2a-vm installed with new power 650W and try to boot with onboard vga to monitor. I see and hear nothing. Would I get beeps from just the motherboard without a speaker attached? I unplugged everything internally to try to isolate the problem. I've remove the memory and only have the processor and m/b connected. I get nothing on my monitor. I tried reseting the bios but still nothing. anyone know what the default video is supposed to be? Is it supposed to be DVI? Thanks for any help.
I had a similar issue after I upgraded the bios. It would clear when I would reset the CMOS using the instructions in the manual.
1.) You have to power the system off completely, making sure the light on the motherboard near where the power, hd light and other jumpers are, is off.
2.) Move the jumper to the 2-3 position and count to 10 slowly.
3.) Move the jumper back to the 1-2 position and power the computer back up.
You should get the default Asus splash screen and you can hit F2 to get into the setup to configure.
Now once I upgraded the BIOS to v1901, if I disabled the Asus splash screen I would get no video, so I had to leave that enabled. It isn't a real big hassle, I just like not using anything I don't have to.
I believe you can save it as a file and transfer it to a USB pen drive, or burn it to a CD.

I fixed mine today. I took out both the clock battery and the memory sticks at the same time. I waited a minute and put them back in. At that point I had video. I went into the bios and and reloaded the default setting. That took care of it. I am using the PC now.
Now I am trying to make a boot disk and a back up disk of the current bios. However, without a floppy drive and only a dvd writer I can't figure out how to do it.

First of all, I'd like to congratulate you for purchasing an M2A-VM motherboard. Yes, I mean it. It is one of the best motherboards available for te price band.
For getting display, you must have four components,
1. CPU (alongwith cooling fan)
3. RAM & of course
4. Power Supply (SMPS)
They must be connected properly and after attaching power supply unit you must ensure that a 24pin connector as well as a separate 4pin connector are connected to the Motherboard.
If the display doesn't come, the trouble may be with any of the four devices connected together. for advanced trouble shooting, please elaborate exactly when and how the problem has been generated. If the problem arised at the stage of initial assembly of the components, please check the components individually, if possible, replacing with another prouct of the same type.
If the problem arised on a running machine, please remove the RAMs from the slot, wipe the connectors of the RAM with a softe clean cloth and re-attach. If possible, you may wish to clean the RAM-slots on the board with a vacuum cleaner. In most cases, cleaning the RAMs do the needful.
Please try & reply.
