Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
Can Someone Please Help? I have noticed that when the green LED on the motherboard next to the power supply cable is blinking and the DSL modem is off on my Dell 2350 desktop, the computer starts for a min.or two, and then shuts down. I try to start it and it does the same thing over and over. A couple of times it stayed on until I finally shut it down to where I was not able to keep it on again.
The other weird thing is that, whenever the green LED is not blinking, but is on...solid green, I can turn the computer on, but only, only if the modem is also on, and the ethernet cable is plugged on to the back of computer and to the modem, for as soon as I unplug the ethernet cable from the modem, or from the back of the computer, or, if I turn the moden off, the whole system will immmediately shut down, and most of the time when that happens, the LED will start blinking again. Once this happens, it will shut down again if I try to start it. It will not stay on.
I want to stop using the ethernet intergrated connection and replace it by installing a new EthrNT.card, but I was thinking, that in case that is the source of the problem, I'm afraid to install it because the new card will still not be detected, and since it shuts down as soon as I turn off the modem or unplug the ethernet cable, I'm afraid that having the new Ethernet card connected, it will act as when I had shut down the modem or when I unplug the ethernet cable, which, most of the time causes the green LED to go on to the blinking mode. So, if I installed the new card , it troubles me that the green light will be on the blinking mode and the time it stays on will not be enough for the new Eth card to be detected, which would leave me no other choice but to plug it back to the same built-in Eth connection....unless you can help me get around all this some other way? Can I install the new Eth Card while the computer is on, with the modem turned on and connected to the intergrated Ethernet, because, as I explained, the Eth cable must be connected to the turned-on modem for the computer to stay on? Would there be a conflict if two ethernet connections are being detected, at the same time? Would the new one be detected but unused until I switch to it? Can You help? Anyone? Any Suggestions; Ideas? Weird symptoms, I know. Maybe you are already familiar with this symptoms? Could it have anything to do with the (wimprvse.exe) file, which I had not seen on the Task Manager window before I started having this problema? Hope it was detailed enough for you to maybe know or have an idea as to what is going on here. Anyway, Thanks for taking time to read my long (?). M.B. El Paso, Tx. God Bless and best regards.
