Question about ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard

2 Answers

PC not booting up- no signal, HDD not engaging.

ASUS P5GD1-VM
When i turn on the PC i do not get a signal to my mointor.

The green power supply light is illuminated and there is power to the PC.

Also the HDD (light) does not seem to engage.

I do not hear any beeps when starting the PC other than the DVD drive engaging.

I tried putting in a new CPU as i thought this may be the problem but it did not help.

has anyone got any ideas?

    just to highlight



    There are no beeps.



    The PC used to work fine then all of a sudden i get "no signal" message.



    I have tried to take it to a PC shop (cowboys) but they couldn't diagnose the problem.



    CPU fan works fine- LED motherboard light comes on, but the HDD doesn't seem to engage.



    Have tried to unplug other cable and plug them back in but i have no joy.



    any ideas? is my pc unfixable and should i just get a new one. only 3.5 years old.?

    Have you tried disconnecting everything except for the power supply, CPU and Memory and see if you get video?

You mentioned that you hear beeps. These beeps gives you the answer of what is the problem. It could be RAM, videocard or maybe the main board itself. It depends on the BIOS that you have (e.g. Phoenix, AMBIOS, etc.) you can see it on the mainboard. You can look on this website on how to identify beep codes:

It might usually the problem of either power supply or your RAM. So make sure you installed them correctly..

    yeah i guess you might consider a new one. You will spend more than on repairs than considering a new since it is time already (3 1/2 years is enough on this computer generation)

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

My geforce 6600 wont give a signal when used with this mobo, why?


Open you're manual to page 2-22. Make sure, Booting Graphic Adapter Priority is set to:
[PCI Express/Int-VGA]. Save and exit the bios. You're system will auto reboot. When you're screen goes black, press and hold the power on button until you're system shuts off. Install the 6600 video card. Double check the 6600 card. Most PCI-E cards need additional power connected to it to run.
If you need the manual you can open the link provided; http://dlcdnas.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5GD1-VM/e1881_p5gd1-vm.pdf

Hope you find this helpful!

Dont't boot anymore since my power supply died


When the power supply failed, it took the motherboard out at the same time. Time to replace it.

ASUS P5GD1-VM motherboard not booting when powered on


First are you sure it is the CPU fan and not the Power Supply fan? Open up the case and make sure the power supply cable is snug into the slot. Make sure that Pin 1 is lined up with Pin 1 on the motherboard. There should be a notch or red dot or different looking Pin to show you where pin 1 is...sounds like it may be a connection problem from power supply to motherboard...try that and let me know what happens we have other options but have to start somewhere..

ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard Problems-ok i just got a new borad because my other ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard did not work. i put every thing back but it is not working, the green light come on the motherborad...


did you make sure that all the Correct power connectors were in the correct position Different processors and mother boards use different means to get power to the board. On this particular board there are only Two that i can see. there is one in the corner near the CPU that can easily be over looked it is 4 pin and only fits one way(keyed). only having the 20 pin ATX will show power to the board but may not have the juice to power it.

So double check the four pin axillary connector in the corner near the cpu ( upper left) let me know if you already have done this.

I Don't have video signal


If this is onboard video, plug in a separate video card.
If it's already a separate card, try a different one to narrow down the cause.
