Question about ASUS A8V-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Lights, no action

my board (a8v-mx) is just over a year old (in purchase). a few weeks ago, I noticed the system would just freeze up every now and then. I dont use this as my primary computer but there are things I only do this computer (copyright stuff). Recently, I went to start it up to begin transferring licensed/lease numbers to new pc and all the lights comes on, fans (all five) working, power light on board is working, power indicator light on. Drive light stays on about 10-15 seconds then go out. Nothing at all is ever displayed to screen nor at any time any series of beeps occurs. If you have no solution to this problem can you suggest a simular board replacement that I can power up and transfer all that I want from the old drive? Many thanks in advance.

I m not able to hear the sound after shifting my computer with asus a8v-mx mother board then installed the o s again with real tek audio software

start with the obvious - your connections in the right holes - ie: green/black etc correct configuration to speakers
does your pc recognise an installed audio card ?
sound muted ?

Always visit the manufacturers website for the latest audio drivers for your OS ie:XP/Vista/Win7

Asus k8v-mx will not boot up

Try removing the memory cards and leave them blank. Turn on the power. If you notice beeps, the memory cards may be at fault. If not, there is a problem with your motherboard

A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.

Good luck.
