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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try:

  • lower the Screen Resolution of your display;
  • lower the Screen Refresh Rate;
  • 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.

How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz

Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer
A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g.
Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer)
Booting your Operating System
Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on

Replace your Ram

Almost too involved to list, but, here they are numerically as best I can recall. 1) Began getting BSOD's and system shutting down. Turned off the auto shutdown so I could read the codes. of which there...


Hi,

This might be helpful to you.

First to be able to see the error messages of the BSOD you need to disable the automatic restart to do this make sure that the computer is shut down, turn it on and hit F8 once you see Dell logo, then choose the disable automatic restart (you wont see this option if the computer is restarting). For this you wil be able to see the error.

For your issue right now since its not posting anymore the better solution is to isolate external or added peripherals,you can try to remove the video card ], sound card or any card expansion to your computer make sure its only memory are attached, if you wont hear any beeping codes, then the memory card is ok, if you have 2 video card, try to use one video card, if the problem exist try the card to another pcie slot, if the beeping occurs then its stated that the video card is the problem and try the other one. If you only have one video card the atleast you can try it to different pcie. However if only memory card is attachd and you still hear beeping codes then try one memory at a time to each slot sometimes it might be the memory is causing an issue. For the beeping codes that you provided mostly its a memory based error and memory and video card are the ones with the memory chip.

I hope it can give you an idea how to resolve the issue.

Thank you for choosing fixya.

3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.
