ASUS A7N8X-X Motherboard Will not power up...

My computer just died and I can not figure out what the problem is. I have tried different power supplies and nothing. The green light is not coming on. If I barely touch the power supply to the motherboard the green light will come on and the fan in the power supply and the cpu fan will start spinning, but if I seat it in all the way then nothing. I am pretty inexperienced in this but if there is a way to fix it please let me know.

    I have tried different sticks of RAM and still nothing, I have also tried it out of the cabinet. Also, the fact that the fans start spinning without me hitting the on switch seems odd to me?

The memory could be the problem.  Do you have memory that you can swap in from another computer?  If not, try removing the RAM and then putting it back in (called re-seating).  This may help.  
*** Please make sure that you have the power unplugged and that you have hit the power button to drain any residual electricty before removing the RAM.  Also keep in contact with the case chassis so that you remain earthed to it.  RAM is very easily damaged by tiny amounts of static that you wouldnt even notice. ***

Need sm bus controller and ethernet driver for a7n8x-vm motherboard

Go to the Asus site:

Choose :
"Socket A (465)"
in the dropdowns.

Enter your OS

Choose the "IDE" driver, that is actually an "all-in-one" chipset driver that should get you taken care of.

When powering on get no input to monitor board nu a7n8x-e

Make sure you have connected into the correct video port. DVI should be used for LCD monitors and VGA should be used for CRT monitors. Since both ports look the same people often get confused. Try it and let me know.

Normal shut down on pc, now it will not power up.

if you can figure out what pins your power switch is plugged into you can try and bypass the switch as for the power supply itself i know theres a way to trick it and boot just the power supply but i cant remember what pins on the plug it is try and google the power plug layout it should tell you what pins to connect to boot it

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?

Asus-A7N8X-X problems

Hey there,
My name's Chris, from Scotland.
I have a graphics card on one of my computers, that needed one of the power cable from the powerpack to be plugged into the end of it. Just open up your computer and you'll see a few of these power cables free for plugging into various devices, such as hard drives and disk drives. Take one and plug it into the video card itself, there will be a slot that fits. Push it in firmly.
If you think that there is already one plugged into the card, then replace it with a different one.
Now reboot.
It should work now.
Hope this helps
