Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard
Purchased a custom built computer over a year ago and it worked fine up until I turned it off last night. But, when I turned it on this morning it would not boot. It halted at screen saying to press DEL for setup. It wouldn't go to setup. After trying several times, I unplugged everything, removed the battery and moved the reset jumper for 10 secs. per manual instructions and returned it to normal state. Now, I don't even get video. The lithium battery CR2032 has 3+ volts. Any clue as to what happened?
Hi rwbta, from your description it sounds like a bios issue.
The bios only displays: (Press the Delete key for setup) when there is a problem with a device.
(Hard disk drive, video device, over clocking settings, ECT). After resetting the bios (As you have done), display should resume. Since it did not suggest you plug the monitor into the second VGA or DVI port on the graphics card & check for display. Try another monitor, (Just to be sure). If you are running in SLI, disconnect the primary PCI express card (Blue slot) & replace it with the second PCI express card. Boot the system & check for display. No display? Move to the second port on the card & check for display. Still no display? Than it is possible your bios may be corrupt.
You can buy a new updated bios directly from Asus estore online, click this link;
http://estore.asus.com/shop/ There are currently 217 pages to search through in order to find the bios chip for the M2N-E SLI board. (Your board is still under warranty).
You can save time by calling Asus tech at; 1-812-282-2787 & talk with a tech. If you choose to do so please write down the S/N found on the parallel port. The tech will want this & check to see if the board is still in warranty. After a short talk with the tech he or she may include another suggestion or you can just ask for an updated bios chip. In either case be sure to get a case number. The average cost for a bios chip is $5.00 not including shipping. Since this board is still in warranty this item should be free for you. Asus store hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 AM. To 6:00 PM PST, excluding weekends and / or holidays.
Good luck rwbta!
