Question about ASUS AI Lifestyle P5N32-E SLI (P5N32-E-SLI-GREEN) Motherboard

No Posting Data to Monitor

The system will not send any post data to the monitor. The monitor is working properly and hooked up. The system is SLI dual identical G-Force 8800's. (Been working fine like this for a year.). I swapped out the monitors, no luck. Swapped out the video cards, again no luck.
Sounds like it is posting but I get nothing on my monitor.

    Thank you will give that a try, dumb question, where is the CMOS battery?

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    I did swap out monitors. That was one of the first things that I did. :)

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    Thank you, I can see it, but I cannot get it out. I depress the little silver clip at the bottom but have no way of grasping the battery to remove it. Any suggestions?

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    I have a WD WD500AAKS 500gig Sata HD, could that have gone bad? Would that cause this? God I hope not.

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    The computer is a Cyberpower Desk Top PC.
    500 GB Sata II 3.0 GB 16mb 7200RPM Western Digital WD500AAKS
    ASUS AI Lifestyle P5N32-E SLI Quad 680I 775 Mother Board
    Intel C2D E6850 3.00G 1333FSB Retail CPU
    4g (2x2g) 800 DDR2 Kingston HY Memory.
    Dual EVGA G-Force 8800 GT's - Drivers (Nov 08)
    Windows XP sp3 (Latest Update)
    Last virus scan was clean - performed Yesterday at 6am.
    Nothing is over clocked. The PC was operating properly when I put it into hibernation last night. Today when I tried to warm her up all I got was the blank screen. I rest, still blank screen. I powered off after 10 minutes, swapped out Monitors. Still nothing. Removed secondary video card. Still no joy. Replaced primary video card with secondary card, still no joy. Wondering now if my HD is bad. God I hope not. I don't have an adapter for it so I can not plug it into another PC to check.


  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    Sorry, yes, Both flat screen monitors, about 3 years old. Hyundai B70A, and Emprex 19" (Used on this PC). They are connected via an adapter. This system has been stable for a year now.

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    I only use the Emprex on this PC, no dual monitors.

  • cncraymond Feb 01, 2009

    Ok, CMOS Battery pulled, waited 10 minutes, put back in. Restarted. It posted and showed me the info. It booted up into windows, then abruptly BSOD and restarted. Upon reboot the system is working. Booted up no issues except I have to re-install video drivers. Running back up now will do that once my important data is backed up. THANK YOU. I don't know what else to say other than that. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I believe this problem was caused by using Hibernation mode. I will not ever again use hibernation on this computer. .

Try taking the CMOS battery out of the motherboard for about 10 minutes and then put it back in. It could be a handful of other possible problems but lets try this. You will lose any overclocking information by the way.

Hey rich you posted on how to clear the evap monitor and stuff......Can you send it to me please


You need to actually diagnose all your vehicle systems
& find a problem

Stop clearing data you need to work on it

Take it to a shop

When you clear data, the evap monitor won't run again for
several days & the problems will be back

You can waste your time by removing a battery cable or using a code reader

Neither is a fix for anything

Monitor no signal


Hello,

Thank you for posting your question.

Try checking your data cable. There are two cables in your monitor. A power cable and a data cable. The power cable is connected to the wall outlet while the data cable is connected to your computer. Try resetting the connection or checking the connection if it's plugged in properly. Make sure that you can check both end (computer and monitor).

If you need more help, please drop me a line.

PC SWITCHS ON BUT NO PICTURE


1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable.Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.Chances are your original monitor is working fine.Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8 Replace the monitor.

My pc does not give display ? Why


Time Required: Testing a monitor could take from a few minutes to much longer depending on the cause of the problem Here's How:
  1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.
  2. Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable. Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.
  3. Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.
    Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.
  4. Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.
    Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.
  5. Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.
    • If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.
    • If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.
    Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.
  6. Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.
    Chances are your original monitor is working fine.

    Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8.
  8. Replace the monitor.
    WARNING: A computer monitor is not a user serviceable device. In other words - do not open the monitor and attempt to repair it yourself. If you would rather have your dead monitor serviced instead of replaced then please let a professional do it.

Our computer screen will stay on for one second and then go black. Green button to signify it's on, is still showing, it simply goes black. What is happening and how can I fix it?


sir if u really love your computer, then take it to the nearest dealer. The problem is might be with the capacitors.

But my suggestion hence, is to isolate the power board (the one that has the socket for the power input), check if any of the capacitors (the tall cylindrical structures) have bulging tops, if they do, try to replace them (Novices please bear the polarity in mind when you play with capacitors) with ones with higher rated ones (especially the voltage rating, normally these would be rated for 25 volts, so try getting one that is one step higher.

Monitor does not display desktop


I'm not sure that you in fact have a dell, but take a look at this link and see if it helps.
Normally you should be able to use the osd (on screen display) by pressing the buttons on the monitor itself to change the monitor settings and get it to display properly. You need to make sure the monitor cable is connected properly, and perhaps check the cable itself by substituting another one in its place.
If that doesn't change the situation, you can check the monitor on another computer to be sure it's working correctly. In that case, perhaps a local tech could have a quick look at your new system and figure out why it's not sending a good signal to the monitor.
Best of luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Have abit - kn8 put 2 gig memm in powered up no picture think I have wrong video card do you know proper one


Hey there,

As per ur question, this problem occures due to following reason:

1. When ur data cable of ur monitor is bad : Try another data cable this causes only to blink LED of ur monitor which not allows any graphics to display.

2. Your RAM can also be responsible for this problem: If your RAM goes Bad then it doesnot allow any graphics file to load and thus causing not to display anything on ur monitor screen as well as ur system keep restart at POST (Power On Self Test) Operation (When VRAM driver is not loaded.

and the last reason is:

3. Your system is not able to recognise your Graphics card due to Either IRQ inteferance or ur graphics card hardware problem (caused due to bad of VRAM installed on ur graphics card): Remove ur graphics card from expansion slot (PCI-E/AGP)and then plug monitor data cable to normal serial port available in the motherboard (Resides back side of ur system).

Thanx

Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Mag monitor doesn't display bios post


The BIOS is sending the display information to the monitor but, when you turn your PC on, the LCD will be sleeping and it will take 1~2 seconds to wake up when receiving the display signal. The monitor is working and even if the BIOS messages aren't displayed, you can still press the correct keystrokes to get to the SETUP screen or press PAUSE in the keyboard to see what's going on in the POST.
If your LCD has a bicolor LED indicating the status (Standby/On) keep looking at it, when the LCD gets the video data, the LED turns instantly from amber to Green or blue even if the screen is still black. This way you can have an idea when the LCD gets the initial video signal and to press the keys accordingly.
Your PC will also delay the video output from the secondary video card because it's detected after the onboard card.
