Re: my pc doesn't boot up

Did you have onboard video before? What is the video card? AGP8x, AGP4x, PCIe? If you had onboard video, you'll need to change the settings in the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You'll have to plug in at the onboard to access the BIOS.

After post screen monitor goes into standby and cannot boot from dvd

Not picking up video card, or rather losing communications. Use VGA port if available on you card, and make sure monitor is set to same connection port.

Motherboard booting problems...How do I solve?


Try to boot with 1 stick of ram then swap it with the other and try again. Next unplug the case front connections from the mobo header (pins). Draw a sketch where they all go so you don't forget. I'm talking about the power switch, reset SW, HDD LED etc. Also remove anything connected to the back panel printers etc. Also remove the mouse and keyboard. Carefully, momentarily short the pins that were connected to the power switch and note results.

If it still doesn't boot, remove all parts from the mobo except 1 Stick of RAM, graphics card, PSU, and of course CPU. Leave the mouse and keyboard unplugged. Try to boot by shorting the mobo pins again. If it doesn't boot it is most likely either the PSU or the mobo. It could also be the CPU or RAM but it is less likely.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

How to fix a motherboard that does not turn on at all.

Make sure there is power at the outlet, surge suppressor, power strip. Be sure any connected UPS is on. Try again.

Remove any recently installed hardware and go for boot. If the PC boots, check to make sure that the new hardware does not overload the old power supply - if it does, replace with a higher capacity power supply and go for boot.

Open the PC. Look for indication of power - LEDs, fan, etc. Replace the power cord between the outlet and computer if one is available, and go for boot.

If possible, obtain a power supply tester to determine if the power supply has failed. Replace any failed Power Supply and go for boot.

Disconnect power. Disconnect all non-required cables and accessories. Leave only the power and data cables for power supply, boot drive, video card, mouse, memory and keyboard connected - everything else should be removed (with the exception of the small cables that go to the MoBo headers for LEDs, and switches on the case). Everything means both data and power cables. All controller cards should be removed as well unless using on-board or built-in controllers. Reconnect power and try for Boot.

Add devices, cables, etc one at a time to determine which is causing the fault. A PC that boots and shuts down shortly after could be an indication of overheating / over load. Clean dirt & dust from case, ventilation slots, etc. Make sure all fans spin freely - replace any that do not.

Those are some things to start working on.. hopefully, you'll find the problem and not have to go further. Good luck!

P4VM890 + new videocard! No boot up!

welcome to fixya

Well i never did it that way but ok

your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,

once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card
this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards
Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,

i hope this helps you out have a good day:)

Asus TXP4 Motherboard will not turn on

Most likely you are looking at a bad motherboard, there is probably a break somewhere in the connections. Check for blown capicators that would be a smoking gun. You can use a different motherboard but it has to be one that is compatible with your CPU. Most motherboards will come with a driver CD so you should be ok. It shouldn't be a big deal with your Operating System or Hard Drive if you replaced your motherboard. Otherwise, you could upgrade to a new system and do a image copy of your HDD to a new computer/HDD. I recommend Acronis True Image makes it really easy.

Geforce fx5500

Please remove the geforce fx5500 video card. Blow out the AGP slot with some canned air. Re-seat the video card & make sure you install it with even pressure (front to back) with slight rocking motion untill the card is completly seated. Try running the system again. ( I'm thinking the card was not completly seated).

If your system freezes again re-set your cmos / bios. In your user manual pg. 2.
Boot to the bios & re-setup all your settings. Save & exit.
If your PC still freezes, try another AGP card because the 5500 seem to be defective.

So hate giving out bad news........

I'm going to assume you supplied the proper 8pin 12v connector besides the necessary 24pin, right? Unplug all cables to any internal peripherals, even data cables. Since you're getting random LED errors, I would remove the video card, open up one of those ancient computers to remove a PCI video card, install it on this board and boot to CMOS. I'd also prepare a Memtest86+ boot diskette and check each memory stick individually (that is if you have a PCI video card output). Keep monitoring/logging those LED errors (to note any type of pattern). The onboard MOLEX power connector, used to provide additional power to the PCI-Express slots when using x16 cards in SLI mode, is located between PCI slot 2 and the board's edge, as a last ditch effort, try powering it up when the Single SLI card is installed. Otherwise, you have either a mal-performing power supply (regardless the total wattage), a funky video card or a DOA motherboard. Always need to carry a known good PCI video card, I use a Matrox Millenium. OH... and take a good slug of your favorite liquor. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

My pc still won't boot up

The beeps are beep codes. Were they short or long? Also do you know who makes your BIOS?
