Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

PC will POST, but no monitor display

Asus p5ql pro intel 2.6 core 2 quad sapphire radeon 3870 g.skill 1gb ddr2 1066 raidmax 500w psu This is a new build, but I cannot get the monitor to show me anything. 1) I've swapped the monitor, video card, psu, and the ram from a working rig with no results. 2) Mobo is touching nothing on the case except grounds 3) CMOS was reset with no results There is no onboard display on this motherboard, so the display has to come from the PCIe x16 and I'm out of ideas. Is there anything i missed?

    Thank you for the responses. I borrowed my buddy's antec 750w psu and the display is finally up. Apparently this board needed more than 500w. Thanks again for your time.

Maybe you forgot to connect extra power to the graphics card? On that card I believe it is a PEG connector, some older cards used standard molex but this is a rather new card.

Also, some mainboards have extra power connectors for the pci bus to provide extra stability (mostly for SLI/Crossfire configs). Never hurts to check if this is the case and then plug in some more juice even if you are not using dual gpu's.

Good kuck and please come back with more questions if it didn't help-

    Minimum requirements for that card is a good 450W power supply with a 75W 6-pin pci-e connector for that card. Add a hundred watts if you have a power-hungry cpu.



    I don't know about the quality of your PSU but as a side note, I
    immediately fried a 430 W Antec PSU when setting up a similar system as
    you have.

    After installing a better and stronger PSU the system worked
    perfectly. I chose FSP Epsilon 600W, a no-nonsense high quality brand
    that I've had very good experience with earlier, relatively inexpensive
    for what you get.

Try these....
Overheating problem in your PROCESSOR!
Check the temp in your BiOS and the setting of your processor!
Check also the power supply and upgrade it to hifgher wattage!
Clean your processor HEAT SiNK, dust and dirt might have acumulated!
Check the HEAT sink position, if its flatly fitted on top of procie, and scrape the old silicon paste between ur proci and heat sink and put a NEW ONE!

Encountered this kind of prob.. the prob is in the PSU unit(Power Supply Unit)!

These might help you!

Want to konw that will new graphic cards work on my pc??


I suggest that you need to buy the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5770 1GB graphics card. It is compatible to your ASUS motherboard. It will display and work faster.

Specify a suitable board for intel quad core 2.66


Obviously the p5q-vm is a better mobo as it has a faster FSB and supports up to 16G of RAm vs 4G on the p5ql-cm.  If you are looking for a gaming PC then certainly the p5q-vm is the better choice.  With that said, you may also want to consider another video card.  While the 9600GT is a fantastic card, it will soon be on the bottom of the dogpile when it comes to gaming.

My pentium d 925 3.0 4m/800 processor decrease its core speed


It is absolutely normal if the processors speed and multiplier fluctuates. It doesn't mean that the processor is damaged. This technology is called Intel Speedstep. When your processor is not used on 100% it reduces its speed, so the power consumption decreases. When you need more power, the processor will automatically clock itself to higher speed.

for more information check here.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpeedStep

If you want to turn off this feature, you have to do it in your motherboards bios. You can find it in advanced ---> cpu settings ---> Intel Speedstep, you have to choose Disabled.

Thats all
