Check firstly the cmos battery isn't flat, then it's down to te processor being faulty.

Computer won't power up unless I jump pin 16 and 17 at the 24 pin connector at the motherboard. After I jump it, it runs till I shut it down. It will power up on a few more start ups but soon goes back to...

a real answer. not bs above.
you proved the PSU is ok, why go there?
the why this works is the chip called South bridge.
does all this (this is how (also) the windows start button and shut off works, called SOFT POWER OFF)
the button on the front panel is a N.O SPST switch.
normally open momentary and shorts a specific and non world standard pin on that mobo to ground, (adjacent pin)
this sends a logic zero state (0v) to the South bridge
then it turns on a transistor on that mobo and that grounds pin 16 to PSU, and PSU magcially turns on.,
end theory101....
the problem can be ; the switch is plugged in wrong. or bad.
HP uses vast numbers of MOBO in PCs so have all different pinouts. and hard super hard to trace and learn that.!
all mine are keyed, and the mobo is silk-screened painted, Front panel.
the other possible is that the PSU is not putting out standby power
on pin 9, with PSU plugged into the wall pin 9 must be at 5vdc.
if not the South Bridge will be dead.
as will the power switch it supports

The South bridge runs power. managment.
the 945P must have PSU standby power and the switch most reach its power on pin, or there will be no working switch ever.

The PC can also force the PSU off if one of the onboard
power regulators are reading wrong (say too high)
The power management is complex, but not that one pin,.below.

Power management,
wake on LAN, sleep, hibernate. and more.
but all we care is the power switch but if the above features work then the switch is bad, and why I mention that.

my PC can even self turn on at 6am if I want, (a bios features) self power on...

now the list of simple..tests,etc.
1: PSU pin 9 must be 5vdc at all times, wall plug aC connected.
and if read of PSU has a switch, set to logic 1 , (1/0 labled)
means on.
2: the correct working switch in front panel,
2b< that switch must be on the correct jack on the mobo and not off one pin or some other ERROR. there.
3:the PSU good ... some are not, (complex reasons) skip i will.
4: the MOBO most be good, (and not overheated)
will the PSU turn on if dvd/cd drive and HDD drive cables pulled.?
even pull RAM. sticks? it will beep like mad but will turn on.
and be dead but turns on. like that. well most do.
5: jump the pin below, does that turn on the PC? as it must!

A DT PC 12 years old now.

m7480n this PC is now retired at HP means zero support.
no service book but it lacked the power jack info in most cases

DATA: (first know what is there, the mobo is clearly labeled. look?
this is the best search I did for you,at HP real, yours
  • Manufacturer: Asus
  • Motherboard Name: P5LP-LE
  • HP/Compaq motherboard name: Emery-UL8E

ive owned many P5 in my life, not now but am an ASUS guy.

but this old board we can do research on it,
I like HP and HP likes ASUS as do I. both.
knowing this fact
we see
Asus Leonite P5LP-LE User Manual

then we find the book on it next like this, (took me 1second )
page 5 shows layout

bottom right shows, (F_panel) Bingo, on jack.

page 25 covers that jack
so pull the jack there pull plug from jack
then jump pin gnd /pwr pins with screw driver tip.
if PC turns on the switch was bad or plugged in wrong,
if not the PSU is dead, Standby power is dead, pin 9

p25-0kaf4dlf4nbtfyx5ejcudwbi-5-0.jpg Asus books always show all this, but never HP for some odd reason. (details like this)
good luck

Asus mobo flashes on startup, no video

You should unplug the power cord from the power supply, pop out the cmos battery, switch the bios reset jumper to the 2 and 3 pins, wait about a minute, put the jumper back to 1 and 2 pins, put cmos battery back in, plug in power cord to psu and turn on pc. If you have any issues with this process please refer to your owner manual for the motherboard or look one up on their website. Please let me know if this fixes your issue.

Problem with ASUS P5GD1 mobo

Try taken the bios battery out for about 30 secs, replace it and then reboot, after post press F8 untill you have a screen pop up with a safe mode option use the arrows keys to navigate to safe mode and press enter. In safe mode goto my conputer c:drive(boot drive) windows. In the windows folder look for a file called prefetch, delete all it contents. Exit out of everything and restart the pc. If same thing happens post back.

Asus p4s800 beep codes. I get one long beep. I

The one long beep, this has something to do with the video card.
Can't really tell without the BIOS you are using !
Anyway, try removing the card and replace it. ( with anything, just to check. )
This is a good board, I have a ASUS P4C800 and you can't beet it.
P.S. Make sure all your memory is the same freq. and clock speed.
Good luck.

Computer automatically restarts after shuting down

Did you install the drivers for the motherboard already? If so check the connections from the power switch to the board which all should be on the bottom right of your mobo. I switched a + and - one time and it went into a infinite look of turning on and off = / Beyond that ASUS Customer support sucks and I would just try to RMA it and start over.

Computer won't turn on.

This sounds like an overheat problem, is your cooling fan working properly, also the processor you are using is a powerful one, so needs a cooling fan much more powerful than the lesser powered athlon 64 processors.

My Asus mobo P5ld2 cant turn on

Did you try to unplug all AC Power; remove internal surface battery; and then jumper the 'reset' pins from 1-2 to 2-3 ? Leave in this state for about 5 minutes- then replace battery; re-jumper back to pins 1-2- replace AC power cord. Sometimes wiping out the BIOS setup information and restarting/re-setting it up will do the trick!

So if i'm getting this correctly your computer will not boot even with just the basics.  Have you tried directly shorting the pins on the mobo instead of using the power button?  Unlikely problem but it would be an easy fix.  You might also want to take your power supply out and get it tested.  The geek squad at best buy will usually do that for free, or you can buy your own tester, or buy a cheap power supply.  If both the switch and power supply are good and you get nothing trying to start it up it means you probably have a bad mobo.  If your memory or cpu was bad and nothing else it would still boot up just without anything on the screen and might give you a series of beeps.  Well I hope i've helped and that you can get this fixed soon.
