    I have the same problem. I checked the memory, video card, and powersupply with a Intel gigabyte board and everything worked fine. Its either the AMD 6400+ CPU is bad or the ASUS motherboard. Since I don't have an extra AMD CPU its going to be tough to figure out which one is faulty. I just built my computer 6 months ago and I never had any of the computers I build that went bad within 2 years. The Asus motherboard I have has a built in safety off feature if the board gets too hot. The quickest way for you to find out is to purchase a new CPU and pop it in to see if this corrects the problem. If this doesn't, it has to be the motherboard. Well I'm going ahead and purchase a new CPU and motherboard because I did wanted to upgrade my computer. FYI........its very rare that a CPU goes bad before the motherboard unless you didnt have a proper heat sink to keep the CPU from overheating.

    my asus m2n-mx could not start up no visual or sound ,powersupply turn on and off for a sec but board remain lighted. have change power supply with same result

    were you grounded to the case when installing hardware? It is possible there was an ESD and part of the system has been damaged. It is also possible that the POST or BIOS is not passing a test, remove all components except your cpu is you get a steady beep its ok, then install the memory and go from there

I guess your problems are solved, but for anyone else reading this thread, here is the fix that worked for me.... *when i pressed the power button, all fans would spin up for less than a second, and die, nothing else happened* so i tried many things and this is the only solution i found; Isolate the power supply from the case, or try just holding the power supply when running the computer. I found that if i held my power supply in my hand, and made sure there was no cnotact between it and the case, my computer worked! Hurrah. So now have cable tied my psu to the top of my case, insulated by a layer of foam. And it's working fine.

If you have cleaned out the dust with compressed air, then I suggest you look at the processor cooling. Is the fan running up to speed? Is the heat sink tightly in place on the processor? Feel the fins of the processor heat sink when you power it up and if they get hot your processor is most likely over heating and shutting down. If all is well at the processor, check the power supply fan to see if it is running and the only other suggestion is to try another power supply. Dust is your worst enemy in a computer.

Hello
Sounds like you need a new cooling fan.You may be able to save yours with some electrical contact cleaner spray.
Remove fan and spray.
The cpu will heat up quick and shut down everything to protect itself.Im sure once you get a new fan you will be up and running again.
You may consider reapplying new conductive paste to the processor while you have the case open.

The controller will not turn on. Green light on back comes on but when we turn on the unit, the fan starts briefly and then the power cuts off.


Bad Power Supply. Weak Voltage power rail.

Not enough power to turn the Processor on, and keep it on.

1) ALL those LED lights together, use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is. (Older Processors use less Wattage)

The Compaq Presario SR1810NX desktop computer, comes with an AMD Sempron 3200+, processor.

(Uses the Socket 939 processor socket)

[Maximum operating capability is a 1.8GigaHertz frequency rate.
1.8GHz

Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.
Frequency Rate is correct computer speak for 'Speed'
The AMD Sempron 3200+ processor, can operate at a maximum frequency rate of 1.8 Billion Cycles per Second ]

The AMD Sempron 3200+, can use up to 62 Watts,

When you press the plastic Power On button, you are contacting a Power On switch inside it.
(Typical ATX Power On switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html )

When an ATX power supply is plugged into power, there is a 5 Volt Standby power, present inside the power supply.

Pressing the momentary contact power on switch, closes a circuit that directs the 5 Volt Standby power to 'excite' the power supply, and turn it on.

The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.
BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System]

BIOS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS ]

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

The LED lights receive power, so do the fans, and the Harddrive. When it's time for the Processor to kick on, there isn't enough power, and the Power Supply 'falls to it's knees'.

Replace the Power Supply.
It's just one of the basic ATX power supply's that are readily available in a multitude of places.
The Wattage is 300 Watts.

The ATX form factor for this power supply, (Size and shape), is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.

MY AMD PHENOM QUAD CORE HEAT SINK FAN IS NOT


First, check for dust. Compressed air works to clean it out.
Second, if the fan is not spinning at all when the computer is turned on, make sure it's plugged in - a wire should connect somewhere
If neither of those work, you may just have to look into a replacement fan, at the least, or a new heatsink/fan assembly. Make sure you get one for AM3 (as Intel sockets - usually designated with a number like 775, 1136, etc. - are secured differently.) They can run from cheap to over $100.

Can you hear the system fan running? If the fan fails, the PC shuts down itself to protect the processor from FRYING.

System freeze for a few second then back to normal


have you tried running benchmark software with both the 5600 and the 6000? if you run say aquamark or 3dmark 06 or 07 and compare the scores you will see which is faster then what... if the 5600 is in fact showing that its faster then you may have to update your bios so it recognizes the new cpu some mobos i have messed with had this problem but after flashing the bios it corrected the issue esp if the cpu was released say a year later from when the mobo was released. make sure you have amd driver software installed too this gives you a performance boost if you install the amd driver software rather then running windows drivers that automaticly installs on your computer when you install windows most forget about the drivers for the cpu because only recently amd started making drivers available directly from their sites. here is the link

make sure you download the model series you have in your computer

Suddenly quit and won't start.


Could be a processor failure, but try changing the cmos battery first on the mobo and locate 'JBAT1' terminal on mobo and put jumper across pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2 and try starting up again.
