It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

    In your picture I do not see the front panel wires. You should have a small circuit board behind the lower drive cage, bottom of your pic. There should be wires coming off of it for the front panel power, usb ports, & any other jacks you have on the front. These wires need to be plugged into the proper place on the motherboard. Looking at your picture & being familiar with asus boards they are usually located on the side closest to the bottom of your board. They will be marked in small lettering on the board with the names of what the pins are for. Make sure these are plugged in & retry. Hope this helps.

    Ok. Then there may be a problem with the cpu not being seated properly. Check the cpu to make sure it is installed correctly & fully seated. Make sure you use a good thermal paste between the cpu & heatsink. Try rebooting after this is done and see if it boots. Good luck.

    When you installed the chipset fan it may have unseated the cpu.

Need instructions for replacing and wiring Motherboard


Luckily that is pretty easy with modern motherboards.
1. Remove power and unplug all devices hooked to computer.
2. Open case.
3. Write down the location and orientation of all wires connecting to old motherboard.
4. Disconnect all wires from the case that are plugged into old motherboard.
5. Uncrew the screws holding the motherboard in the case.
6. Carefully remove old motherboard.
7. Install new motherboard and secure it to the case (probably using the same screws as the old MB)
8. Refer to diagram you made earlier to plug in all the wires to the proper places in the new motherboard.
9. Check and make sure the new motherboard works before closing the case.
10. If everything is working correctly, close up the case and you are done.

Sd card wont show up on my gateway gt5228


You are missing the drivers for the card reader. They usually come with the chipset driver installation. I looked up your driver downloads on gateway support and it says there is also a driver in the "others" section caller "motherboard driver"

So, what you want to do is go to there site at the link below and download the "chipset" driver and the "motherboard" driver and install them. that should fix your problem.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530. Was getting 2 quick beeps on start up and loud fan noise. I replaced the cpu fan but the one I bought did not have the right plug for the motherboard connection. I had to modify...


This model (as well as many other Dell desktops) has a DUAL SPEED CPU fan. If the motherboard detects that the CPU temp is running hot it will increase the speed of the CPU fan to lower the temp of the CPU. You should do a Google search for the correct CPU fan and purchase it and install it back into your computer.

My custom built computer has a the m7vig400 installed and i can't formatt my new harddrive because the fan on top of my processor will not come on why ? it came on with a 16 head hard drive how do i...


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...

When I turn on my computer, nothing appears on monitor


Somehow, if you've been messing with your computer, uv put static through the motherboard. This has ither damaged the processor or chipset, the chipset is the part that makes the usb, display and everything work.
Theres no way out of this except replacing the motherboard and processor. If you went inside your computer, you've obviously damaged something.

Next time wear an antistatic wristband!

Monitor will not turn on after booting computer


if you have onboard video try a video card that fits in PCI or AGP slot or try a different video card in place of the one you use
with everything else seeming to be correct this seems like the only thing you have not done

Motherboard upgrade


The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.
