Question about ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard
Hi, i just built a new PC with the following spec:
ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard
BFG GeForce 9500 GT Graphics card
4Gb (2x2Gb) Crucial RAM (right type for MoBo)
AMD Phenom 2.5Ghz Quad Core
SeaGate 500Gb SATA II HDD
Sony DVD/CD/Everything Drive
The problem i have is that when i turn the computer on, everything seems to start ok, but nothing happens on the screen. There is also no beep from the PC.
I have checked power connections, Fans are working, HDD spins up, CD Drive has power, LED is on on MoBo, put graphics card in other PCI Express port, other monitor, other port.
Please could you advise on whats going on!
I have the same board (M2N-SLI) with a BFG 9800 GTX with no video either. I have the card in the black slot and I have 2 mem sticks in the yellow. Shouldn't make a difference if I'm using a monitor not an LCD right? Everything spins up for me too, hard drive, vid card has power, CPU fan is on, post (green) light is on.

I also have a ASUS M2N-E SLi Motherboard
After my hard drive died, i have had various problem getting my system up and running again.
Anyway, i had exactly same the problem you describe yesterday.
I found that if i took out 2 of my 4 x 1Gb stick of ram it started up ok just as it used to. I have spent the rest of the day expirementing only to find that i can use only 3 sticks and not the 4 i had been using.
Its working fine now, i just glad it is but with only 3Gb as i thought the motherboard had gone down the tubes.
Hope this helps

I have the same mainboard, and, as far as I can tell the board does not support More than Dual core.
If you can find or borrow a socket AM2 Athlon/Sempron Dual or single core and see of it will post then.
Also, IF you can get it to post (probably with the other processor mentioned above) you can enter into bios and try Updating -- Asus does not ocifcally state that it can run Quad core on even with this update -- some people claim it works but I have not tested it to know for sure. Download the file from http://dlsvr.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM2/M2N-E SLI/1204.zip (or look to see if there is a newer one at Asus's Support Site.)
Unzip the file, place the 1204.bin on a flash drive, then get into the BIOS On the M2N-E Sli machine, use F5 to reset defaults (you probably have not had time to change them, but it is recommeded to set the bioos defaults before flashing) and Navaigate to the Tools menu and launch EZ Flash. From there it's pretty straighforward.
Only do this if you can't retun the mainboard at this point - Otherwise I would suggest you return it and find one that States it will support Quad Core Processors.

POST checks the motherboard, ram, & graphics card. You mentioned that the PCI-E card is connected into the black slot named PCiEX16_2. (I gather this is what you meant when you said, other). See the bottom of page 2-18. You must have the graphics card in the blue PCI-E slot (Named PCiEX16_1, see page 2-3 motherboard layout in your manual. Once this is done you should gain video display.
You must run your graphics card from this slot if you are running only 1 video card & you also need to make some changes in the bios as well. Turn to page 4-32 in your manual. AL-Selector. Set to Normal & set configuration to [Single video card]. After you change these setting save & exit the bios. Try not to freak out when you find windows does not show you all of the 4GB of memory you have installed. Please see the FAQ section on Asus web site. Click on this link; http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?model=M2N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us
As you read the above pages in your manual you'll find your x16 speed video card will only run at x8 speed if you install a single PCI-E card into the black PCI-E slot.
Everything should work out ok.
If you still do not gain video display just let me know & I'll go from there.
Good luck Will !
