Question about ASUS P5GZ-MX Motherboard
When i switch on the PC the motherboard comes up with no beep sound and the Processor fan spinning for seconds then the mother board automatically shuts down then.
Is it new? if yes, you probably connected the power supply wrong. most of these things are fine when they get shipped, there's just so many ways to not connect it properly that it's probably that. double check the manual of the mobo and the power supply and make sure youve got every connection right and tight. I have an engineering degree and I still forget to connect something sometimes, causing boot errors...
If it's not that, you have to think CPU connection or other peripheral connection is bad/defective/loose, and the motehrboard is just doing it's job by sutting down to prevent a fire. Doubel check your CPU connection. Did you use thermal paste? Is it snug/pproperly installed? An improperly installed CPU or other peripheral can cause spontaneous mobo shutdown, for good reason. The mobo manufacturer soesnt want you to fry your other components.
If not that, you may want to call your mobo manufacturer, you;'ll be surprised how willing they are to talk you through basic problems starting up. The lack of beeps or lights does bother me a bit in terms of pointing to a bad power connection, or a bad mobo. Usually you would rely on beeps and lights to diagnose what's wrong, as you know.
The mobo manufacturers are usually pretty good about shipping you a replacement if needed.

Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.

Tips for a great answer:
4 beeps (1 long-2 short- 1 long) is a Programmable Interval
Timer code (motherboard error). And 1-2-1 is a Processor Register Failure
(CPU). About your only hope with a
laptop is to pull the battery and (highly recommended if at all possible) pull
the RTC battery and then press down on the power switch for a few seconds to
totally re-set the BIOS. If no joy, you might
one at a time remove the RAM, hard drive and the CD to rule out a short in
those components. Next step involves
removing the keyboard, etc. to get to components such as the LCD and the
network card. Pull them one at a time and
try booting. When you have tested all
the peripherals that are plugged onto the MB, you can assume that the motherboard is toast.
