Question about ASUS P5B-VM DO Motherboard

My A7N8X-VM Mobo won't power up

The fan comes on briefly and then stops.  Replaced CMOS battery as I did manage to get into setup once and saw that date/ time and other settings were lost but mostly I can't get machine up.  I am open to all suggestions! Some of the solutions I have seen for other mobos seem to suggest a bios upgrade but I don't understand how to do that if you can't power on the machine.
Thanks in advance!!!

    This machine was running for about 2 years without issue. This problem just started, no changes were made to the machine prior to the issue starting. I did reset the CMOS, but that did not help.

    Has this system been running for a while or is it a new build?

I do have a question - was this memory functional in your board before or is this a new install/upgrade?

Many times the issue you've described can be memory related. This is a link to the types of memory your board will support - pay close attention to the voltage, if the memory you are trying to use right now has the wrong voltage you will get no post and/or video (and on occasion error beeps).

The other thing you can try is resetting the CMOS (via the onboard jumper which should be near the battery). Instructions on how to do this should be in your mobo manual.

....and of course, ensure that both power plugs are connected to the mobo.

Post additional info or your results back here.

Note: I am not affiliated with the company who's link I've posted, it's for illustrative purposes only.

Probably your BIOS battery, replace that and setup you BIOS again and it should be fine. BIOS batteries look like little round watch batteries.

Any more questions just let me know.

Oh, you need to go into your BIOS, for that Motherboard, you should press alt+f2 while it boots up and that should load you into BIOS (or it might be called Setup). Once you're in there you need to change your Date and Time to the current date and time. Hope that helps!

Normal shut down on pc, now it will not power up.


if you can figure out what pins your power switch is plugged into you can try and bypass the switch as for the power supply itself i know theres a way to trick it and boot just the power supply but i cant remember what pins on the plug it is try and google the power plug layout it should tell you what pins to connect to boot it

CPu fan turns for 1 second and then stops.


If all was working fine before, then, you have either not connected the cpu power cable, as is sometimes required other than being powered by the processor socket, or your power supply unit is not pentium 4 compatable and is unable to power the processor.

No power up


Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!
