Have you tried a new power supply???

You may have a high end video card installed, which will need a big
power supply.

Try removing all parts except the CPU and video card, your system
should still boot to the bios post screen, If still no go try a new video card, cpu. you will need to keep swapping parts around tell you find out witch one is causing you the prob, its the only way
to sort out a hard ware issue.
Hope this helps
Have a nice day.

Hi, maybe you should download a manual.

From here:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_478/P4P800VM/#download

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.

I would need to know what all you are trying to run in your computer to offer much assistance, but hot plugging power cords in computers is a good way to fry the motherboard. It sounds like you don't have a big enough power supply for everything you are trying to power, so that when you connect enough of the power plugs, the supply shuts down from trying to draw to much current.

If you post your hardware specs, I will try to offer more assistance.

Thanks,
John Vickers

Hello
It almost sounds like a mistake at the pc start switch and reboot switch.

Check that you have your pc start wires from the front start button of the case, in the correct spot on the motherboard.

Also remove the memory sticks and reseat them.

The green light on the motherboard is good it means your getting power from the power supply.

The start and reboot switch wiring can be tricky if one plug is in the wrong spot on the motherboard.

Not booting up


>Start with the power. Is the power cable plugged in correctly into a UPS, surge protector, power strip, or wall outlet? Is the wall outlet where the power comes from controlled by a wall switch that was turned off accidentally? Is the power strip turned on? Is the light on the UPS or power strip on, indicating that it has power? Is the power cable plugged into the back of the computer correctly? The socket on the back of the computer where the power cable goes in is part of the power supply in your PC. Some power supplies have a separate on/off switch, usually labeled 0/1. Is that switch turned on? Check the voltage - most power supplies have a switch to change between 115 and 230V - and make sure it is set correctly.

> Is the power cable for the monitor plugged in correctly? Is the monitor turned on? Is the cable from the video card to the monitor plugged in correctly? Is the video card seated properly? Take the cover off of the case, remove the video card and insert it again properly, then try again.
If everything is connected and powered up correctly, push the power button again and pay close attention: do any lights on the front of the PC blink or light up? Does the fan in the power supply start whirring? This could indicate a hardware problem. Try to think what happened right before the problem started. Did you add a new piece of hardware? If so, it might be faulty or not installed right. Remove it, then try again. If everything is fine without the hardware, try to reinstall and configure the hardware again. If that does not help, try exchanging it and see if that corrects the problem. If the error persists, narrow it down systematically. Remove everything but the CPU, memory, keyboard, and video card, then boot again. Does the error still occur? If not, then add one piece of hardware and try again. Repeat until one new component causes the error and you now know who the culprit is. If yes, then reseat your CPU, memory and video card and try again. If the error still happens, try replacing the CPU, video card and memory one by one to see if one of them is the troublemaker. If that does not help, you could have a bad motherboard. Check the motherboard carefully for any signs of damage. Also check for shorts, a metallic object could have found its way onto the motherboard, or the motherboard is not installed correctly and touches the case somewhere.

First, make sure you plug the power from the fan back into the motherboard & try it again. Did you do anything else besides just pulling out your old hard drive & putting the new one in? The CPU fan is completely independent of the CPU fan. You can start up you system without ANY hard drives & the CPU fan will come on if it's plugged in & the power supply is working etc. If you make sure the fan is plugged in correctly & the fan still doesn't come on, I suggest you temporarily put your old hard drive back in & firing things up. I'm sure you will find that the fan still doesn't work.

All that said, if the CPU fan isn't working (& everything else is), then it's a bad fan or motherboard. It's not necessarily a bad motherboard. Sometimes there are jumpers that control that sort of thing. I'm not sure exactly what that motherboard does. I have had this exact motherboard for years & as long as the fan is plugged in (& the power supply is working), when you start things up, the fan comes on.

One last thought, try flipping the power supply switch in the back to reset the power supply before you press the button in the front. Good luck...

Won't boot....fans start, then stop right away


check if your power source is ok. it may be broken and this is why you hear the fans start and then stop right away. they are working about 3-4 seconds, aren't they?
remove and put back the jumper for clear cmos after you test your motherboard with a new ac source

Gateway 507gr wont power on but looks like ps unit is good


Make sure you are plugging in your P.S. to Motherboard properly. This can happen if you are off by one pin on a 20 pin Supply on a 24 pin Motherboard. If you never opened the case and it just started happening, maybe one of your cards came out of its slot or your CPU Fan is not running.

I am wondering if you had been doing some work to this when this problem started. Did you take the wires off for the power switch? I have noticed that sometimes if you pull the wires off of the motherboard and put them back on and you put the connector on backwards (assuming that its a 2 wire cable for the front panel) it may not work. Also, if you have a screwdriver handy which Im sure you do, take the plug off of the motherboard and jump the 2 pins that start the system. If it makes the system work then change the switch. If that does not work then try checking the power supplies. Just because the light is no does not mean that the power supply is working correctly. Will the system work with just one power supply hooked up. If so try one at a time. I have also had luck with re-seating the processor and the system then booted correctly. Try reseating the ram. Bad drives, cards and cables can make the system not start. Unplug everything that you can and if it starts, plug one thing in at a time and see if you can eliminate the bad part. Hope this helps...

Nothing on my Emachines computer will turn on.


I would recommend rechecking your connection to the motherboard. All wires from the power supply to board and making sure the front panel switch connection are correct. Also, make sure the power supply is compatible to the motherboare. even though a 20-Pin ps will connect to a 24-Pin board, it still does not work. Good Luck
