Question about ASUS AI Lifestyle P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe (P5N32SLISEDLX) Motherboard
My computer used to work just fine untill a couple of days ago when I tried to boot it. All the fans started spinning at top speed, the led of HDD activity went on, but it wouldn't go into my BIOS screen. So I shut it down and tried again, but this time the led wouldn't even go on. I left it on for a while, but no progress. Since then it won't do anything but turn on the fans at top speed. I have no good understanding of computers, except for the basics so I wouldn't have a clue what is wrong with it. I know that everything is compatible since it was working fine before. Any suggestion would help.
This is a sign that the bios is corrupt and you will have to remove the side of the pc tower and on the motherboard look for a 2 terminal commector, this can be labelled CLRCMOS, CLRRTC,or a 3 pin JBAT1, there will be a plastic cap if its a JBAT1 terminal, put from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back again, if its the others then they have to be shorted by placing a cap across the two terminals. restart pc and press f2 to reset time and date and save and exit, it should then boot back up. If your problem continues to not allow you into the bios, the chip is faulty and you will have replace the motherboard.
