Open the PC and try reseating the memory and processor before condemning the motherboard. Also, as an FSC computer, check the processor is not one of the batch which had the incorrect heat sink fitted - if it is, you will be entitled to a free processor replacement form the FSC helpdesk.

Pc won't boot


Can you get into the BIOS at all? Not sure what your motherboard is, but usually F1, ESC, DEL, or F10 get you to BIOS.

Without a diagnostics card, or built in diagnostics like some gaming or server boards have, the beeps may tell you what is wrong if you go to the manufacturer web site and look in your product manual.

If you can get to BIOS, some have a restore function to get you back to a different state, but even if that is not the case, you may be able to see something like a bad drive or memory chip being unrecognized that will identify the problem. If no to the BIOS or the BIOS was no help continue on:

At each step, if the same beeps happen, reconnect the device and move to next and reboot. Power off completely between steps and unplug the PSU.
1) Disconnect cd and hard drives, try to boot.
2) Remove memory and try to boot.
3) If motherboard has built in graphics, remove video card.
4) Lastly, remove everything one at a time till you get to the BIOS with no beeps. If nothing but your monitor is connected, and you still get the same beeps, the motherboard or CPU may be faulty.

If removing one item, ie the CD drive, allowed the PC to boot, then try a different cable, or IDE/SATA port. If memory removal allowed boot, then try one at a time in your main memory slot until you identify the bad module and replace it. If the motherboard boots with no VGA card, then that is a likely culprit, but switch to a higher power PSU and see if that allows you to boot. (some cards like the 6790 give messages to say you don't have enough juice, while the 4870 just makes the motherboard beep because no video device is attached technically)

Motherboards aren't the easiest to debug, but if you have patience, you will be able to eliminate all possibilities and identify the root cause of the problem.

Hi,
Do this, first disconnect your memory into motherboard slot and then power on your PC. if you hear repeated beeping means no memory installed, the motherboard work fine. try to insert again your memory. if your memory are two pcs. insert only one memory and then power on again your PC. (only one by one insert memory for testing so you can trace if one of your memory was defective).
Try this,
Motherboard beeping troubleshooting guide.
(Note: before touching computer parts like motherboard, memory, video card and specially hardisk the very important parts of PC. discharge your static electric into floor ground or the case of your power supply. need also external PC speaker. if no onboard PC speaker ).
No beeps means short circuit, no power, bad processor, open parts or defective parts specially capacitor parts.
See this sample picture of capacitor leakage and defective.

One beep means everything is normal the motherboard work fine.
Two beeps means cmos bios error and defective.
One long beep, one short beep means motherboard need tracing defective parts specially capacitor.
One long beep,two short beeps means videocard problem need tracing of parts CPU and blower fan for working good, also capacitor parts for leakages.
Three long beeps means keyboard error some key press stock up or modules parts defective.
Repeated long beeps means memory not detected, loose of defective
Continuous Hi-Lo beeps means CPU overheat or loose blower fan with heatsink into motherboard chassis.
Try this solution for your motherboard troubleshooting solutions.

Hope this information can help you.
Thanks for using fixya

first make sure the RAM is securely seated

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Asus P5RD1-VM. Auto-power up, not boot sound and cannot power off


First of all you want to reset your BIOS. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the manual which is provided in the following link, the manual calls it "Clear RTC RAM" which is on page 35. While you are inside the computer, make sure all cables/connections are firmly seated.

Manual:
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5RD1-VM/e2440_p5rd1-vm.pdf

If this fails to clear up your boot issue, you need to go a little further into the computer. Make sure your computer is off and unplugged from the wall before continuing.

Next you need to remove ANY hardware that is not needed to boot. This means any add-on cards (expansion cards), hard drive, RAM, video card, CD/DVD drive, USB devices, firewire devices, speakers/microphones, keyboard and mouse.

After they are all disconnected, try booting. If it acts the exact same as it did before, you have to go further into the computer again. If it does something different, one of the components you removed was causing your boot problem. Replace them one by one, trying to boot between each component you hooked back up, I would first start with the RAM.

But, if the computer still does nothing upon boot, you need to bench test it. This means you remove the motherboard from the case and set it on a hard non-conductive surface (kitchen table or a work bench). Then you hook up the Power Supply correctly and attempt another boot. If now you hear beeps from the motherboard, your motherboard had somehow shorted to your computer case.

If you still get no beeps, your problem is either the motherboard or your CPU (processor). To narrow it down between those two, put your processor in another computer to see if it works.

If you go through all of those steps and get nothing, I would be looking mostly at the motherboard.

Hope this helps.

Keyboard and VGA port does not work,i think it's a motherboard


i think your board is dead you must wait 15 seconds to reboot your pc or you will over surge it with power my buddy did it to mine and blew up my graphics card your board might be dead but does it make a clicking sound when you try to start it or any beeps if not your board is dead you could try to clear the cmos just take out the round watch battry on the board for about 5 min and then put it back in and start it up but theree should be a jumper you can use to clear the cmos cmos is your pc's boot options you know when you hold the delete button and shows your boot options it will reset itself try that if nothing works your board is dead

Computer boot problem


Temporarily swapping-in another power-supply is the first thing to try.
Don't connect the disk-drives, CD/DVD drive, nor 3.5-inch drive.
If the computer "beeps", and shows the POST (Power On Self Test) screen, then changing the power-supply is the solution.

Look at the motherboard -- any "blown" or "bulging" capacitors?

check your jumper settings. You can probably view jumper diagram online. Make sure all drivers are downloaded and up to date. Try placing windows installation disc in before booting pc. Also check boot setting to make sure hardrive boots second and cd boots first. Also make sure your hard drive jumper is set to master.
