Question about ASUS K8N Motherboard

No power and blinking green LED

Hi all, my computer just went to sleep by itself for the first time and and since that nothing. => my k8N doesn't start. When the power is on there is only a blinking green LED and no beep, no fan activity, nothing. I switched the supply and with the other one, the LED is still( no more blinking) but nothing else. I am thinking something heated to much on my K8N and died. Do you have a solution ? Thanks for your help.

Re: No power and blinking green LED

It may not be that the bios needs clearing, take the left side panel off and look for the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put jumper cap from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. start the pc then set the time and date when prompted ans save settings.

Pc not starting from pressing power on. Green LED for SB_PWR is on and when power switch pressed, fan & cool fan flicker momentarily but nothing happens. They do not spin. No LED light appears on front...

> PC had been suddenly powering off several times intermittently for a few days leading up to this state. Does this mean the PSU or Motherboard is at fault?

Yes, either CPU or PSU or motherboard are the likeliest culprits.

It's easier to try a different PSU than to try a different CPU or motherboard.

HI. If you are a gamer/producer type. I would go with the Western Digital Veloci Raptor. You will not be disappointed with that monster. Now; If you are a moderate user that dose not crave for power and speed, and want a power saver/green drive, I would go with a Western Digital WD10EARS Caviar Green Hard Drive - 1TB. The green drive will save power and run quite well.

Asus K8N-LR power problem

This is a problem within your ATX power supply . Better to get it repaired or replaced , otherwise each switch-on surge would damage your comp components eventually .
