Hi Ivematthew,
Usually, that red light is simply an indicator that the mainboard is receiving a 5volt supply from the power supply and you must NEVER install or remove any mainboard components whilst this light is on. In fact, dont touch the instde if the case or the mainboard if this light is on.
If you are getting a no signal on your monitor, try turning off at the mains and pulling the plug out, then touch the metal chassis of the case BEFORE you touch anything inside the case.
Then carefully remove your video card and re-install it into the same slot, you can even do this a couple of times. Then try booting the system up.
Also, check that both ends of the video cable are securely connected and that the cable appears undamaged.
I have to ask, Is the system booting up?
Are you getting a single beep at the start of the boot or is your system beeping more then once?
If it is beeping more then once, count the length and number of beeps and go to the ASUS website where you can use the beep code to locate the particular fault the mainboard is signalling about.
Let me know how things go and email me if you are still having issues OK?

This is going to sound vague, but currently a friend and I are working to get this desktop PC working that has a KN9 SLI motherboard installed on it. Currently, the issue is: The computer turns on, a red...


Try checking the jumpers on the motherboard. A lot of the SLI compatible boards have jumpers that need to be configured properly. You can find out the positions by checking the motherboard manual. Are you using an SLI capable video card or is the video onboard? I just ask because I had the same problem once while trying to install an SLI video card. I had no picture on the monitor and I couldn't figure it out for the longest. Finally I found the answer in the motherboard manual and it turned out to be a jumper that was set wrong. Hope this helps.

No Monitor signal and no ethernet light on modem


please test the power source that the computer is plugged into and confirm it is working with a lamp or something.
If power source is confirmed working and the computer is plugged in and it is turned on and there is still no signal to the monitor and the ethernet lights are not on when the cable is plugged into it. Also check that all cables from the monitor to the computer are connected properly and secure. if the above has been done and still no signal then there are some Possible Causes
1. Mother Board failure (video card on motherboard is defective)
2. Monitor Failure (computer is sending video signal but monitor can not process it)
3. Video Card failure (if the video card is not designed into the motherboard)

Troubleshooting and repair
See if you can get access to another monitor to test the computer with to see if it sends he video signal ok to that monitor. If you can not get access to one then the only option is to get a video card and either you can install it yourself, or have it installed at a repair station.
If you purchase the card and install it yourself most stores will let you return the cards if they do not work or they are not usable. If you do go that route just make sure to ask about return policies prior to trying it.

I would really consider replacing the video card first you can get them from 30.00 and up and there is ony a few screw to remove to install them. Most of the video card manufactures also have tech support for helping people with the installations of the cards.

I would not worry about the lights on the modem or network card until the monitor issue is resolved so you can then see if it is indeed making a connection to the internet.

Monitor stays blank power light blinking


In this case if you monitor say no input or no signal it means the monitor connector cord are not connected properly to the motherboard. Or if you have a video card you need to plug your monitor connector to the video card. Because if you a video card and the monitor cord are connected to the motherboard the monitor will not be display. So check the monitor connector if it is correctly connected.

Sounds like your video card is bad. You will need to purchase a new one. On some machines there is 2 video connectors -like 1 on the motherboard and 1 other mounted in a slot just verify that you have tried both connectors if you have them before buying a new card.

NOTE: Usually the slot mounted video card will over-ride the motherboard video by default.

Good Luck!

Red Light (on) on my motherboard


The red signal is for the motherboard which indicates it has powered on. It has nothing to do with the video card.

In the no signal problem, please make sure that the video card is firmly pressed on the its slot.


Detach and reattach your memory [RAM] or put it in a different slot right beside it.

No Video Output - HP 6635 Desktop minitower - CPU Intel CELEROM 533Mhz


if you have changed the monitor and the same no signal have you noticed a beep sound? or can you see the green and red light in front of cpu? if both of this doesn't light it's power supply and if there are led lights (green&red) lighting but there is a continous beep sound the problem is the on board video card. if a sound short beep, beep the problem is your memory card.
