Question about ASUS A7V8X-X (90-M7A690-W0EAY) Motherboard
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?
