Question about ASUS Ai Lifestyle M2N-E (ASKU49311) Motherboard

5 Answers

No video signal on boot

I just built my first system and for about 2 months, it ran just fine. Then, once day after shutdown, I started it back up and after showing the Ai Lifestyle logo and the Windows loading logo, my TV showed "No video signal".

I have tried scanning for viruses, as well as a general systems diagnostic with the Advanced SystemCare program. I reinstalled drivers from both Nvidia's website and the software that came with the graphic's card. I have tried to reinstall and repair Windows both. I have also pulled a regular PCI video card (Nvidia 6-series) and replaced the current video card, but after that I didn't even get the logos so I put the original one back in.

I'm really not sure what else to try, so any help would be greatly greatly appreciated.

ASUS Ai Livestyle M2N-E
AMD Athlon 62 X2 Black Edition
2 GB (2x1) RAM Corsair
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Running on a Tobshiba Regza. (No problems with either displaying the computer in safe mode or displaying television.)

    I appreciate the advice but I'm looking for either a method that will fix the problem or something else, such as a definitive error that I can use to justify a return of the board.

  • Jen Dec 23, 2008

    Twin view is disabled, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (manually) from the ASUS setup CD, the graphics card CD and the Nvidia website.

  • Jen Dec 23, 2008

    Thanks for your reply. I have already tried installing another video card, in a different slot, to no avail.

    This particular motherboard has no on board video.

    There are no BIOS failure beeps.

    I have tried replacing the PSU with an upgrade which is running smoothly. The old PSU from this computer is currently powering another of my computers, with no problems so I don't think it was the PSU to begin with.

  • Jen Dec 23, 2008

    By definitive error, I didn't necessarily mean a system message with an error on it, just something definitive other than knowing it's a general problem with the motherboard.

    However, in answer to your question about how I would be able to see an error on a system with no display, I am able to run the computer in Safe Mode.

    Once again, I appreciate the replies.

First, if possible, try to connect another monitor then check. othewise it is likely your Video has gone (Which is possibly on the motherboard) alternatively you can try installing a new external video card in the PCI slot and run the machine if it works fine. If everything has failed then possible their is a chance of your video card failure. -------- its better first you try it with external Display card install it in the PCI slot and test your display again,
------ maybe you have your onboard video card disabled or your AGP or PCI video card is disabled in the bios.. try pressing del.. den F5, den enter, den F10 den enter.
------- If you have integrated video and you do NOT have BIOS hardware fail beeps, then you have either turned something off OR your PSU has failed.
----------------- .or possibly the power supply isn't correctly connected. If you constantly need to reseat the card, then the shifting of the card is wiggling something on the board which causes a "good" connection to take place.. So, you might start by completely reseating the motherboard so all setoffs are right.. Make sure all power connections and cables are reseated.. Things like that.. If the computer still doesn't work, try replacing the powers supply.. And if still no joy, I'd replace the motherboard.

Initially, pls try:

  • lower the Screen Resolution of your display;

  • lower the Color Quality;
  • reboot.
  • alternately, pls verify if the Twin/Dual view is enabled in the Display Properties.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Would it be possible to try connecting the NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS to the Toshiba Regza by VGA and not DVI (or the other way around).

Hi there
Sounds like the display drivers have become corrupt, boot into safe mode by hitting F8 on start up, once in the system go to "device manger" and un-install the display drivers.
reboot the computer and the display drivers should reinstall themselves

kind regards

    problems in safe mode too.................... clear the CMOS by either removing all power from the motherboard and take the battery out for 10 minutes or use the jumper as shown here, when you clear the CMOS you will have to set the date and time again, also make sure the memory is seated properly and is free of dust

    regards

U have a failure in the motherboard, it happens.

    Well what do u think is wrong? I still think this motherboard is the issue, you eliminated the video card, so what else is their, windows has basic software for the video so u don't even need the video card software installed for a monitor to display, this means a motherboard issue.

Car wont start. took a fuel injector out and put the same one right back in and it ran for 2 days fine now wont start again, what is the problem?


A possible fuel pump pressure issue. You will need to have a garage check the fuel line pressure. The engine requires more fuel on cold start and a failing pump may not be able to cope with supply. This may also be apparent at high revs, but not as apparent as cold start.

Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.


Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio

My Dell Inspiron 1525 with Vista shutdown spontaneously


I think you may have a virus? I recommend that you do a System Restore to the time, you say about a month ago? anyway, restore it to that time & hopefully the problems will be gone.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 Shutdown Spontaneously


Generally with laps the reason for a spontaneous shutdown is power. Either your battery is low or the transformer for power is going bad or is bad. There is information under the control panel, then power options which show the power settings and a meter to check the amount of power left and what is being used for power. Check those two items and you may fine your problem. Also make sure the battery is properly inserted into the slot, if it is loose a bit of movement may trigger the shutdown.

If either of these work please leave feedback.
