Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of things that you could try:

  • verify that the power source is active. check the breakers, try another electrical device on the outlet, try the computer using another outlet/power source;
  • some power supply have a master on/off at the rear, pls check;
  • with a voltmeter (DVM/VOM), check for the absence or presence of voltages from the power supply;
  • alternately, remove the big connector from the power supply to the mother board, jump the green wire to any of the black wires. The fan of the PSU should turn. If not, it is a defective power supply; if yes, then it would be a motherboard /devices problem. try unplugging everything except the motherboard and try again.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

First thing I'd try is check and see if the power supply has a reset switch (Some have circuit breakers) and see if it powers on. (Some reset just by removing the power plug, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then wait 3 minutes of the reset, then plug in power. If still no power try an different power supply.

You have a dead power supply. One big test you can do to test for sure is take out the cable big cable that runs to the motherboard. Take a paperclip and make a U shape. Stick one end in the Green wire and the other in the red. If the fan turns on then the problem is not the power supply. If it does not turn on then the power supply needs to be replaced.

Computer won't resume after standby (os: vista)


Make sure all Vista updates have been installed, and check the ASUS website for any bios updates. I believe that motherboard had a known issue with stand bye.

Asus p5b-mx motherboard not showing display but every thing is on


Hi camlamm, check out Asus CPU supported list link;
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-MX&os=17
See if your CPU is in the list.
Bios not booting? If you are receiving any display on your monitor the trouble is not the graphics card. Suggest you clear the cmos jumper. See page 1-26 instructions your manual. This Asus board is warranted for three years. If nothing gives you access to the bios, suggest you call Asus tech, M-F, 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST at: 1-812-282-2787.

Good luck camlamm!
Thank you for using fixya.

Help!


Have you installed RAM? If not the machine will not boot. You may also need to enter the BIOS setup to set the CPU and DRAM voltages and multiplyers etc. Follow the instructions in the manual for setting up the CPU info in the BIOS. Are you sure your PSU has enough guts to run the setup? Many times have i seen setups fail because a cheap power supply has been overstretched.
