Question about ASUS P4V8X-MX Motherboard

2 Answers

No video ok first this board was in a case i bought off e-bay. i bought just for case but it had motherboard in it. supposedly good board. when i got it ,it already wired with everything but the hard drive. so i double checked connection and plugged in my hard drive . when i hit power button the cpu fan runs,hard drive spins, cd-rom and cd-write and floppy light stay on. no video, no beeps. i double checked all connections ,changed memory ,disconnected cd-roms and floppy and still no video. Removed battery cleared cmos, still nothing. i suspect board is bad ,but im no computer genius either. power light on board lights up. hdd led or power led light up.

This solution may be a bit late, but it sounds like the motherboard is bad. This might also be the symptom of a power supply that can't supply enough power, though. If you have access to another supply for testing, plug in the main (20/24 pin connector) and CPU (4-pin) cables. Install one stick of RAM, the processor and fan, and try it out. If the system starts, you know then it's the power supply. If not, you've proven the mainboard is at fault.

Go to the Asus website and download the drivers for this board. It's most likely that it did not come with drivers installed. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Good luck.

How to check the motherboard ASUS P4B8X if it is fried??


Quick and easy way to test. Take the motherboard out of the case and place it on the box it came in, with nothing more than the CPU, ram and video card (or use onboard if it is there). Connect the appropriate power connectors from the power supply and see if it boots.

Should get one beep and then the bios or possibly a Manufacturer's logo

if it boots, then put the motherboard back in the case taking care to make sure that all standoffs (the little brass nut type things) are where they are supposed to be and not making contact anywhere but where the mounting holes on the motherboard are.

If it doesn't boot while out of the case, there is a good chance that the board is dead (doesn't happen often, but duds to occur) and time for a replacement.

I recently bought an old dell optiplex sx 270. I


You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

Bought agp video card x1550 256mb ddr 2 by visonek not working freezes at bio


Hi skinnypim210,

Did you buy the visontek x1550 256 ddr 2 agp 8 x video card your self or is it attached already in the mother board you bought? Coz if you buy the original one, it should be mother board only.
Here are my analysis to your problem:
1. The visontek video card which is agp is not possible to be compatible to *********** board. If you just key in your product online the compatible video card is really PCI video cards. it is really dam video card for now. But may be you can re sell it for those motherboard owners that has agp slots.
2. The speed of the video cards are the same but we are talking here of compatibilities.

I hope you're enlighted. just rate my solution so that I will know if you have solved the problem.

Thank you,

New computer won't POST


have you tried different memory as no matter what the board says they don't like some memory .
also take the board out of the case and connect pwr supply.
cpu and fan ,video card , and 1 memory stick

no cables ,keyboard ,mouse or drives connected.
this is called bread boarding.
reset the bios jumper, then put jumper back.
and power up.

Not charging


Try a diferent cable or try to clean to ports contacts. It could also be that the port has been desoldered form the motherboard.
