If you take the Ram out and power the board with no RAM does it have a 3 beep pattern (or somthing similar)

If it does beep (complaining of no RAM) then your board should be okay and try different ram,

if it doesnt then its either your board or CPU,
remove everything from the board (RAM CPU IDE devices etc) and power it,

again if it does bleep (complaining of no CPU) try changing the CPU

If it doesnt beep your boards probably had it.

Let me know...

You do have ram istalled? Pul the power cord remove the bios batt wait 3 min and try again. Make also sure your cpu is properly istalled. Check on board for faulty caps usualy swallen. Hope this helps have a nice day

My computer does not start, but the ld motherboard lights up, I've tested, and the source is ok.


Hi,
I don't know how computer technical you are, but it sounds like you know a thing or two about them. So here's the best way to find the problem:
There could be many things that could stop the board from fully booting, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is open up the case and take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd, hard drive or otherwise) the CPU, a graphics card (only if required) and one bank of memory. (which is not required, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. If your going to load a IDE drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it, meaning the drive (IDE or EIDE) your putting on the board is set to Master, or Cable Select if your using the cable placement method.
Now, turn it on, and you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan going. If they start, then make the next step to have the single drive be your hard drive, and see if it boots. If it boots, then great, open Bios and make sure Bios is reading the board and all things are fine with it. If so, what ever you put on next make sure it one at a time so you can identify what it doesn't like.
In the case where the CPU or power supply don't power up, it's then either one of the six elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card (if required) or the motherboard.
The next step is to replace each one of the first five, starting with the Ram Chip, put another like chip in and see the results. Then do the same thing to each of the remaining 4 components, the graphics card (if required), then the drive(cd, hard drive or otherwise), on to the CPU, and last the power supply. Hopefully something will show it's ugly way to make a change. Also, on the drive (IDE, EIDE or SATA) , try a different cable to make sure it's not that,
Now If no changes happen after all that, then I take it one step further and usually get a like (doesn't have to be exactly the same, but a board that the components can be tested on) motherboard that I can test the first four, and make sure that they really work. If after that and you have tested all of the components and they all work, then it's save to say you have a bad Board my friend. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
 
Good Luck

Will motherboard will support winXP pro


Hi gimondor,

The motherboard really isn't your worry. Windows XP pro requires a 300 megahertz or higher processor. You motherboard can take from 100 to 400 megahertz, so you need to know what your CPU is. If your running an intel P4 chip, and at least 128 mbs of ram, and you have at least 2 gb's of hard drive space left on your hard drive, then you can run XP Pro.


Good Luck,

And please leave a rating based on my solution.

I HAVE P5RD1-VM ASUS BOARD NOW COMPUTER STARTED PROBLEM


Hi,

several reasons for this.

1:) CPU Overheating.
2:) RAM Overheating.
3:) Motherboard Component Overheating.
4:) FAN not operating correctly.

These are a few things that can shutdown a computer after a few minutes, also viruses/trojans et,c.
can shut off hard-drives. and even instruct the bios to change settings.

Check that the CPU And case fans work correctly.

Mike @ compurepair.
