Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard

Blinking Green LED on Dell Dim. 2350 won't let system stay on.

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.

    First, I'ld like to say a big thanks to FixYa for their wonderful site. I barely found it and it's great. Thanks again FixYa!

    Thanks a lot Sudheer 1011 !! When I read the e-mail, I had already switched to the new Ethernet card which I dicided to install as the computer was booting up. It detected it right away and now it seems to be working fine, even though I don't know if it will continue doing the same thing after I'm done using the internet and the computer has been on for a while. I have already turned the modem off and also disconnected the ehternet cable, and it did not shut down. It kept going smoothly; nevertheless, I'm going to do what you suggested I'ld do with the ram card. I hope what you suggested along with the new Eth card I installed will take care of the problem for good. Thank so much again Sudheer and FixYa. God Bless. M.B.

Dim green light on power supply blinking

If the Power supply LED dims and flickers its either your motherboard circuit has been cut or there is a short in the laptop. The AC adapter is not the cause.

Try this:
Remove the battery, then press power button to drain all the current, then re-install battery and plug to adapter.

If that doesn't work, then it's most likely the motherboard.

I got dell optiplex 755 desktop computer in the power supply unit at the back there is a small button and a green light what are these for??

It help diagnose problems with your computer

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow:- the power is operating fine but your computer not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPU or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light: power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode

My dell inspiron 1525 power light is blinking amber???

Most newer models of Dell computers now have a diagnostic LED surrounding the power button on the from of the computer. When you press the power button to boot the PC, the light should be green and remain green under normal circumstances. Any other lights will help you troubleshoot the power issue you are having.

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them. Also pay attention to any unusual beeps or sounds coming from the computer. Then join us in our free computer tech support forums and we'll try and help you solve your PC problem. Sometimes, however, a service call to Dell will be required. If your system is still under warranty, you should always just call them first, as tampering with your computer may void your warranty.

Hope this helps!

If you are referring to the green light on the system tower and is blinking the problem could be the system is in stand by mode.

Turn off the computer by pressing on the power button on the system tower for 10 seconds.

Disconnect the black power cord at the back of the system tower and then again press the power button on the tower for 10 seconds. There would be no activity on the tower when you do this.

Reconnect the power cord and then power on the computer to see if the issue is resolved.

Thanks for using Fixya

John, pull the power cord and leave the system off for 30seconds. Then reconnect and attempt to power on the system. If it still doesn't boot then listen to hear if there are error beeps. The number of beeps indicate what the possible problem could be. You would check this is the troubleshooting section. -Ravi Shanghavi

Dell Dimension 2350 reboots every 3 secs

Could be a couple of things.

Disconnect the C drive and see if the computer will stay turned on. If it does (you'll get an operating system not found error), then reconnect the c drive and see if you can get into the BIOS. If not, you'll need to replace the hard drive.

Could also be a faulty power supply. As soon as it tries to boot off the hard drive, it puts too much strain on the PS and causes a reboot.

Finally, if neither of those fix the issue, then the problem is motherboard and at that point it is more cost effective to replace the computer unless you can find a cheap, used motherboard. Good luck!
