Question about ASUS P5LD2 Motherboard
Need some help on how to troubleshoot. I have a PC which uses the Asus P5LD2-X/1333 mother with ASUS EAH2400 display card, plus a video compression card (http://www.thakral-it.com/en/cpxx.asp?idd=213) as it is a DVR machine. It's running WinXP SP2.
The machine run smoothly for several days, but suddenly the machine will become inactive. No signal to display, no response from mouse and keyboard. No response when I ping the PC. The HDD light is not blinking. I have to turn off and turn it back on in order to recover it.
After reboot I checked the Windows event log but found exactly nothing. I am desperate as this problem occur at least once a week. What can I check or do to troubleshoot the problem? Any help or hint is appreciated.
That seems to be an odd problem, my recommendation is just to check the basics. Test the power supply. Make sure the memory is well seated. Run memtest 86 and prime 95. And if you have more than 3gb or ram take some out and try it, xp gets touchy if it has over 3.
