Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

1 Answer

No video at startup

My problem started a while ago when i tried to boot my pc and it failed to post. After 15-20 seconds of the computer being on you can hear the speaker (on the motherboard) display one long and two short beeps. There was no video being sent to the monitor. So after removing/re-installing the video card, checking connections and testing the monitor still found nothing. I know there is power to the video card because the lights light and the fans spin. After taking it to the local pc store and having it diagnosed they said it was the video card. so after purchasing a new card and installing it, resetting cmos still nothing works. help please!

The beep code you mentioned is either a video problem or RAM problem, that is what the beeps mean. Check your RAM one by one in case you got a bad stick, making sure they are properly seated in the slots. Since a new video card did not slove the problem then it also could be a motherboard issue, video slot dead. If your motherboard is still under warranty contact the manufacturer to see if they'll send you a new board. These are the common problems for the symptoms you describe. Hope this helps.

Compaq nc6220 freezes during POST


Start in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Then...

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.

This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

My acer veriton desk top is not booting up and giving a beep continues beep also moniter is not displyaing omething


This is likely a result of the computer not recognizing the monitor. During the POST test during startup,the computer will check for a video output. It can range from the video card failing to just not having the monitor plugged in. I would check you connections, perhaps try a different monitor, even a television that has either HDMI, DVI, or VGA input. If that does not fix it, it is likely your graphics card or on board graphics from the motherboard. Is there anything new since the last time the computer worked? How old is your PC?

Imed 1402 wont boot up


Your computer is not completely booting (it's failing the POST).
You need to identify the problem by disconnecting everything but the CPU, video, and memory. See if you get something displayed on the screen. If not, there is a good chance the problem is in the video card. Just to be sure, if you have 2 sticks of memory, take one out and try a boot. Then swap sticks.
The monitor is blinking yellow because it's not getting a video signal.

"Windows failed to start. A


Hello,
It sounds to me like the harddrive has errors on it. First, I would try completely reinstalling windows with the windows disk. If that does not solve the problem there are several pieces of software that are much stronger harddrive repair solutions than the built in Windows one. Try this one, it is free for 10 days. You will need another computer (friend's computer?) to download and burn this software onto a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot to it by pressing any key when it asks you to.

My Dell optiplex 170L keeps turining off and then


Possible that it's caused by a faulty hardware or a computer virus on your computer. For us to isolate the issue we must start troubleshooting with the hardware

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer
2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the computer each time you plug a device)
4. If it keeps on doing that, open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and power cycle it to avoid static electricity)
5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
6. Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing
8. If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot, remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to other memory and each slot
9. If all else fails, restart the computer and keep on pressing F8 before the window welcome screen comes up - to go to advanced boot options
10. Boot to Safemode
11. If you are able to boot to Safemode
12. Login as administrator
13. Click start
14. run
15. type msconfig then press enter
16. click on startup tab and click on disable all button at the bottom part
17. Restart the computer and let it start normally
18. if the same thing happen, boot to safemode again
19. Login to administrator again
20. Right click my computer
21. Click on properties
22. Click on Advanced Tab
23. Click on settings button under Startup and Failure
24. Uncheck the Automatically restart under System failure
25. Restart the computer in normal mode
26. Tell us if you see any blue screen error, if so, post the error here

if all else fail, your operating system needed to be reinstalled and you should have the cd for the operating system if it's XP or Vista or Windows 7.

The desktop won't reboot. The power light stays yellow. I hear a fan running, but the monitor says no signal.


If your fan runs and the hard drive spins up, then you have a video card problem.
I'd do this: Disconnect everything inside the case but the CPU, memory, and video. Now try to boot. Also observe the fan on the CPU--does it spin?
If this fails, then your video has probably gone bad. Also--does your computer usually give you a "beep" when it starts up? If so, is it giving you a beep now? If not, you're failing the hardware startup test (POST).
So, your problem may be the video card. If your video is part of the motherboard, then you need to replace the motherboard.

One beep at startup - System does not bootup


You have what sounds like a RAM problem. Try known good RAM as a test. If it still fails, remove add on cards except video. Make sure that video card works. If it still fails to boot. Replace motherboard.

My home pc trouble in windows xp professional


Hi chirutha,

Which version of Windows are you running? I would suggest running System Restore to a point maybe a week ago and then trying it again. You can find System Restore from your Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools menu. System Restore for Windows is non-destructive and won't delete any data files (music, pictures, documents) that you've put on the computer. It's also reversible.

You can also access System Restore directly from booting into Safe Mode (after the system POST startup messages run when the computer is booted up, press F8 until the Windows Boot Menu comes up and select Safe Mode).

If you can't power your computer down, hold your breath and then hold the main power button for five seconds and it will shut down.
