Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard
A couple of nights ago i found my pc had frozen. i pressed the reset button to find that my computer would not boot. my fans come on and it sounds as though the hdd does kick in, but i get nothing on the screen at all. no beeps or anything. i switched power supplies and same thing. changed mb's as well. then tried ram followed by cpu. what am i missing. i have nearly made a whole new pc. the only common parts are the case, hdd and opticals. can you assist?
Hi, First of all, your hard drive is what this computer needs to boot up. Try to see if you can POST, that is, only plug in power supply to motherboard with cpu and memory in there. Don't put any hard drive or other device into motherboard as yet. see if it reaches past post. If it does, then plug in hard drive and see if the problem occurs again. If it does, then the problem is the hard drive. But for now try reaching past post with only the bare necessary components for startup. Then let me know what happens.

Missplaced computer passwords are retrievable by attempting to reset the device with the buttons provided. Usually the computer would allow to change passwords that inappropiate either as compromiseable or missing due to several reasons. Click insert the passwords that find appropaite until the computer asumes that user has forgotten passcodes. A reset button should display in place of the prior insert pass area. Changing passcodes however require the alternatetive references to achive success. For example, a computer may have had several backup passwords where lossing one makes way for key inputing the next once. Also, usually the computer password established may have allowed another entity to have the backup passwords. For example, lossing passwords to computers that derive control from server main frame computers may require contacting the systems administrator to restrive the password or reset to another passcodes.
