Question about ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard
Hi, i started getting the BSD a while back and after testing my RAM
(memtest), came to the conclusion it was my northbridge overheating
(replaced the fan with a heatsink about 1 year ago).
So i decided to re-thermalpaste it.
After plugging everything back in (i had to remove my mobo from the case to get at the spring-screws for the heatsink), i booted up and no image displayed (the monitor did not think there was any input).
(Not graphics card)
I swapped my graphics card into my friends computer and it worked.
(Not a power issue, PSU)
I swapped my power supply into my friends computer and it worked.
The light (green) turns on on the mobo at boot. And if the graphics card works... i don't know what else there is except for a problem on the mobo itself.
Can you think of anything else i might have missed? Have you heard of any common problems with other components of the mobo i can replace?
Thank you so much in advance.
Sounds like your system is not booting, that may be, obiusly you just have power but that's it...no boot routine. hope somebody else could help on "how to make sure your system can boot again, then the rest.
