Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer wont start up

Today we took the ram out to replace it with another but it wasnt compatible, so we put the original ram back in and now all we get is a flashing light on psu, when we disconnect the power supply from the motherboard the psu light stays on, then we try to connect power cable to motherboard and psu light flashes and no power. could this mean in the short amount of time it took to change the ram over, the mb has shorted out? i have tried all the steps on the hp website, but to no avail, any help would be appreciated.

Nahh, ramstick cant short our a MoBo, the pc wont start and it beebs loud but no more than that, but your hands can do that if you had a lot of static electricity on you when you touched the Mobo.
Therefore always touch some metal before geting inside a pc.

Did you try to pull out the battery and put it back on the Mobo?

Make sure your motherboard supports that speed of RAM. Your board is listed as accepting up to 1333 DDR3 with a maximum of 4 GB of RAM. Check which slots you put the RAM in, especially if you have 4 slots. Also, make sure the RAM is properly seated in the slots. Sometimes, taking them out and putting back in can make it work. There is also the possibility you didn't ground yourself properly and damaged another component on your motherboard through EMS. The best way to check would be to put the old RAM back in to see if the PC works. If all else fails, its possible you just have bad RAM or the RAM simply isn't compatible with your board.

Everytime i try to turn on my computer it beeps continuously i just installed new ram and a graphics card took them out put original back in and still does it.

The particular issue of beeping continuously is the RAM you need to check if the RAM is correctly installed. Make sure that the RAM you have install are compatible to you RAM slot. It will cause continues beeping and will not display the monitor.

Another thing you should check is the graphics card. Check this also if it is correctly installed. Install also the graphics card installer.

Sounds pretty much like a motherboard problem. The problem you describe sounds like a RAM problem, probably they are loose in the slot or not snuggled properly. However, since you seem sure its not the RAM, I would consider replacing the motherboard.

PC want start after replacing memory card


1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.

2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.

3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.

3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.

Hope that this helps :)

Cpu can not boot

I don't think it is a ram issue.Try this when the computer is booting,hit the F8 key. That boots you into safe mode where only the most necessary drivers and programs load. If it loads in safe mode that is good. A little bit of daignostic work can locate the problem after that.

Plugged the wrong RAM and now the motherboard only lights up HDD LED

try leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. if that doesn't work, then turn it back off, remove the ram completely, reboot without it in there, then turn it back off, then reinstall the original ram, then turn on again. (might sound ridiculous, but the computer is just not recognizing the ram) you'll want to be sure that it is completely pushed in also. otherwise it will fail
