Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard
For some time my computer freezes and only thing i can do is manual restart. But, few days ago, even that didnt help. Now i cant power up my comp. When i start only i can see is black screen and no sounds that something is wrong. I did clrcmos and manage to start comp but when i turned off next time i wanted to start up same problem happened. I tried with other memory, power supply, graphic card.
Current configuration: Asus A8N-E, AMD Athlon64 3200+, ATI HD2400, 1GB Ram Apacer, Maxtor 80GB HDD
Your problem is very common with old computer.
The reason might be humidity or dust.
Please consider taking your m/b out of the case and the rest of the components (like video card and memory simms) and with a brush dipped in alcohol clean the whole m/b everywhere you can (both sides) scrub it hard especially places you see dust or rust.
I use it all the time although I have to say you need to do it at your own risk.
Good luck and thank you for using agadycom.
