Question about ASUS PC Desktops

2 Answers

I just put together a new computer using ASUS Motherboard P5Q-E. When I turn it on to boot it up for the first time the Onboard Switches P5Q-E Power on switch and the P5Q-E Reset switch blink. The power supply fan and the Cpu fan and the case fans are not running. The external speakers beep beep. I unpluged the dvd and the hard drive. They still blink. Please help.

    I have a brand new ASUS M11BB - after attempting to power up on the 2nd day of ownership (after shutting down the previous day), I could not get the computer to power up. How likely is it that the power supply failed already ? Or the power switch ? I tried a power cord from my previous computer, but no luck.

Put another power supply in and it worked fine. The power supply was bad. Returned power supply to dealer for a new replacement.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

How to check the motherboard ASUS P4B8X if it is fried??


Quick and easy way to test. Take the motherboard out of the case and place it on the box it came in, with nothing more than the CPU, ram and video card (or use onboard if it is there). Connect the appropriate power connectors from the power supply and see if it boots.

Should get one beep and then the bios or possibly a Manufacturer's logo

if it boots, then put the motherboard back in the case taking care to make sure that all standoffs (the little brass nut type things) are where they are supposed to be and not making contact anywhere but where the mounting holes on the motherboard are.

If it doesn't boot while out of the case, there is a good chance that the board is dead (doesn't happen often, but duds to occur) and time for a replacement.

How do i use asus motherboard features in ubuntu linux .where do i get asus linux drivers for asus p5q motherboard?


Linux Ubuntu is fully automated. It is backward compatible with old hardware. You should have no problem installing and using it.

It will look for any drivers it needs. It has a vast repository of drivers and software. I have run it on a variety of machines and virtual machines with no problems.

Replaced power supply on T2240 emachine now cant get onboard video" or any video,also tried PCI video card with no results. Need video to see if machine can boot


the fact that your not getting any video is that your computer is not booting or it can't boot right now.

might be best if you found someone to test and help you with it or if you took it to someone.

I'm not exactly sure what you are explaining but to disable in Windows go to: My computer: Properties: Hardware: Device Mgr: Graphics Card and for the one listed that is not your AGP card click: Disable This Device. It's just that simple. Also, in some BIOS,maybe all, there is an AGP: enable/disable box. This of course should be enabled.

I have a problem, I've bought a P5Q-E Asus motherboard, and I've bought a 1066 Ddr2 ram, P5Q-e Supports ddr2 1200, and I'm scared what if 1066 won't work on this motherboard? Or will it, please help me...


It will most likely work, but it will make your computer run slower because the RAM you are inserting is slower then the one that is already installed.
