Question about ASUS P4SP-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Boot up ishue

Hello, I have a problem and hoping to solve it with your advice.
My pc started to giving me trouble a month ago-always when I tried to restart, it want do it and it was giving me bios erorr beeps (1 long and 2 short). In manual I find out that is video adapter related erorr. Well, only way to start normaly my pc I needed to shout it down completly and leave it be for some 30 minutes. When I started it again in bios was a message - during your last boot up your system hung for inpropriate cpu speed.
I was tring to reset my bios setting to default but it didnt helped, as soon as I restart the same problem with the beep codes occured.
In time it got worse, and pc neded more and more time to be left powerless to succesfully start again. Finaly, i could not even get him start because the beeps started even if I left it be and even start it on botun.
I replaced the motherboard battery, checked monitor, all cables, memory,conections inside and all works fine.
Now I am wandering what could be the problem: cpu, motherboard or psu.
I got p4sp-mx motherboard with onboard grafic SIS 651, intel celeron 1.7 processor.
Some guys on net forums told me they suspect that psu is gone.
I hope you allredy incounter problem like this and will help me.

    I tried running it without a cover and fans worked but beeps kept going on. So its got to be PSU. Thank you for your time, cheers!!!

From the sound of it, the PSU is going. The long cool down time would indicate to me that is a rather large component that is not exposed to very much airflow. To help isolate this, you might want to try running the system with the cover off. If the problem stays about the same, I'd say it's the PSU. Check all the fans while you're at it.

Hi I have had my computer about 1 year now, I built it my self but now I have a booting problem. When I turn my computer on it dose'nt evan show the splash screen. So i turned it on and left it for about...

Your motherboard is apparantly having trouble with some hardware in your system. Try to remove as much as possible connected devices, including sound cards, firewire cards, secondary graphics cards etc. Try booting now.
Start adding devices, one by one, until the PC doesn't boot anymore. Obviously, there is something worng with that device. Try connecting it to another system, see if it works. If so, try updating your motherboard BIOS and reconnecting the device. If that doesn't help either, you're kind of out of options. That device is not compatible with that system. Period.
If the device fails in the other PC as well, it's probably broken. I'd return it for warranty even if it will function with the updated BIOS anyway. It worked with the older version before, so something must be broken, even if it appears to function without trouble.

I hope this solves your problem,

PS: Becuase you said you built the system yourself, I trust you can perform all the tasks I described. If not, please contact me.

Problem regarding booting

due to the increase in temperature inside the cpu for the protection of the motherboard and components it might not be getting started ..

this happens if the processor fan is not running properly or if it stucked due to some dust or obstacles ...

try cleaning it after separating heat sink and processor ....

after refitting the processor trying booting it should work ....

if needed replace the processor fan ..
