Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard won't power up past the onboard green light

I just purchased the ASUS P5LD2-VM and installed it into my system. everything was working fine until I tried to power up the hard drive. My system prior to this motherboard shut down during an upgrade to my Windows XP Home Edition. When I installed my motherboard, CPU and RAM, it wouldn't run the XP program. I compelted all the tasks required to try and get it to work, but ended up having to reformat my disk. Then the system wouldn't re-install the program. I kept getting a STOP Error message related to the XP program. I was n the process of completing all of the steps suggested to get the system to work. As I went through the steps, the CD-ROm wasn't recognized, then the floppy drive. This was preventing me from updating anything as of course I had no access to the drives where I would install needed drivers or software. I thought maybe there was a conflict with my IDE and so I reserved IRQ 14 thinking the computer would automatically select the IDE for the IRQ. This resulted in an overclocking problem and I immediately reset the BIOS to the default settings. Within five minutes of that the system shut itself off and it won't power up beyond showing the onboard green light and running the CPU for one second. What does this sound like is happening?

Re: Motherboard won't power up past the onboard green...

I have only had this kind of problem in the past with generic *white box* computers, never from Dells, HPs or other name machines. I have always believed that this was probably due to the equipment not being adequately tested and thus not appearing on Microsoft?s hardware compatibility list. More recently problems like this have worked out to be problem processors, motherboards and sometimes memory. As you would suspect all the diagnostics tests worked out fine, but never the less replacing them made the problem go away. Since the motherboard is new I would suspect the parts recycled from your old machine. If this is not part of a Windows business network a trick you might try is installing the hard drive on another PC and install XP there. Then remove the hard drive and reinstall it on the original PC. If it works all you will have to do is install your drivers and you?re good to go. I?ve done this on two PCs, giving full warning to the owners. Years later the machines are still running strong with no problems. Good luck, let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

The driver can be downloaded here:

Select your windows system 32 or 64 bit.
Click on audio and hit global for download.
Unzip the file before you install.

If the driver does not work buy a sound card to add in the pci slot.
Just make sure it supports your windows.

Good luck

Hi, maybe you should download a manual.

From here:

Just to check you have connected everything right.

First select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global for download.
The file has to be unziped before you can read it.

Have you installed the ram module and cpu correct ??
If you have installed a wrong type of ram it will not boot at all.
Does it makes any beep sound ??
Is the powersupply ok ??

If you are useing the onboard graphic check for loose connections.
Check with the manual that all connections are in order.

Check your motherboard version. Note:
Only PCB R2.0(or higher) support Intel® Core™2 processor

You should find the information between the pci slots Or close to the asus heatsink next to the cpu.
Its quite small text, eg 1.01 1.0 2.0 etc.

If the number is difrent from R2.0 or 2.0 then your motherboard does not support the cpu.

If it is so then you have to change to a difrent motherboard.

Yes, your mobo Asus P5LD2-VM support CPUs with Conroe-core ("Core 2 Duo"). But for new CPUs strongly recommended use last BIOS version - 1401 from 2007/08/14.
