Question about ASUS CUWE-RM (CUWERMSWA) Motherboard

1 Answer

CUW-AM no power

I was having problems powering up my pc. It has a CUW-AM motherboard. It would power up one day and the next day it was dead. So y unplugged everything and cleaned up and tryied plugging in again. I used a Thermaltake Dr. Power to see if the power source is working. The ATX PWR makes all the leds in the Dr Power green except -5V. The rest of the cables seem ok. Now (shame) I don't know if I'm plugging in everything the right way. The first I am doing is just with the ATXPWR and the fans (both) to the mother. It won't start. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!!!

    Thanks for the input... tried a new power supply. Plugged in just the 20 pin to the motherboard and the power button... it still won't start :'( The strange thing is that it would start one day and all of a sudden wouldn't start and then it was ok again.

Try you system with a known working power supply. Your power supply could have an intermittent problem. It could be a lose wire or a capacitor problem. Putting back your system, Plug the 20 pin/24 pin power connector to the motherboard, plug the 4 pin extra CPU power in place, plug the panel connectors(Power button, reset button, LED...).

    Check all the sockets of power supply, processor, memory, and video so you wont have to buy any extra. Goodluck with that

No power or power light when plugged in. dead

Remove main battery and try to power up, next have the power supply charger checked for output voltage, after this point you are looking at motherboard issues, however! sub out the ram one at a time as a last resort.

Acerpower sv wont turn on, the fan only keep spinning with no display. And no signal beeps

Good day.
Primary culprit is your motherboard and the processor. But just to be sure, check your power supply cables going to your board and the voltage. Next, to isolate the problem and the board/cpu, remove all the device (cards, memory, drives, etc.) then power on, if there still no beeps then your board is dead, no way to check for the processor unless you have a good processor.
Good luck

First Hello. Before few days,when I turn on my PC(but I was unpluged my machine from electricity) and on monitor displays CMOS wrong set date/time,cpu frequensy.I hit BIOS set up sittings and Windows xp...

Replacing the bios battery was the correct thing to do. Answer me this. The Asus motherboard should have a green LED light lit (Standby power LED), when the system is turned off. Also keep the power cord for the power supply connected at all times. Though it is possible the replacment bios battery was all ready low on voltage or dead. When you're system is turned off the power supply continues to send 5volt DC to the motherboard which maintains the bios 3volt DC.
If the green LED is not lit than there is no power charging the bios battery and every time you boot the system the bios will have lost its settings. If the green LED is red in color, than the problem is within the standby switch built into the motherboard. The standby circuit can not be repaired. Double check all power connectors from the power supply to the motherboard. If everything has a good connection and you're bios settings continue to reset you should consider replacing the motherboard. At this point you have nothing to loose. Install the latest bios update,
(Beta Version 1010.005). 2006/02/14 update.

Good luck!

Swap from an intel cuw-am motherboard to amd mcpsp m2

How many holes on the power-block on the old motherboard?
How many holes on the power-block on the new motherboard?

Examine the sides of the old and the new power-blocks.
One side should be smooth, and one side should have a "bump",
in order to hook to the "finger" on the power-connector.
Align the "finger" with the "bump".

Also, notice that the holes in the power-block are not "square"; they are D-shaped, to ensure that ONLY the correct posts on the power-connector will fit into the correct slots on the power-block.

Two months old dead no power

Hi there,

Check the Power cable of your PC for any damaged or burn/cut. Firmly check the connection on the slot of the CPU Power Supply,

Check the Electrical outlet , or better plug the cord on a different electrical outlet.

If all of this has nothing to do and the problem was still there, possible problem on the powersupply are, it is advisable that you have to replace this part, a possible burnt or a short circuit has happen inside, due to some electrical malfunction on your area.

HOpe this helps.

Let me know for any clarification
