Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard

2 Answers

Computer powers off during boot

Installed new ASUS A8N-E mobo last week and it powered on and worked great!
Now the computer will shut down about 1 second into boot! All lights go out! 
I have reset the processor, checked the cooler paste and reset the cooling fan. All fans power on when start button is pushed. Reset the memory (1gig) in the blue sockets. Reset the video (ASUS) card. Checked all electrical connections and plugs at fans, hard drive, CDROM's and neon transformer. All were unplugged and reset.
If I keep pushing the power on button for numerous times, kinda keeping the power to the system, it may start up. Sometimes if it does start, it may "click" and shut down anyway. Then I have to start over again.
Boy, any help on this one would really be appreciated!

I have everything installed in a case,but when I turn on the power,I get a blank screen.I have no os installed,this is just initial startup.What could be the problem?


With all installed you need to tap delete or f8 during boot to set up BIOS for the display type and other devices, also connect the mobo speaker so you can hear any possible error beep codes before it smokes...

A8N-SLI Deluxe asus motherboard wont boot


first you want to make sure
the power supply works, they can stay on for a week then die, then work again , then die

then disconnect the cd rom, and see if it still has the same problem,

next could be the processor , this would be the cheapest part next in line,
processors get warm when they work
if not , you would replace that before motherboard

you can also disconnect the hard drive a while
to make sure there are no config errors

Try another power supply. I believe you would have this problem if your 4-pin connector from the power supply is not connected to the board. Of cause, you might have a defective board.

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe Problems Booting


Sounds like the power supply is overloaded. Is this a new configuration? Start removing components until it powers up. If it still doesn't power up, check to ensure you don't have a short in any of the connectors that you installed components into. Sometimes when a video card, memory DIMM, or whatever, gets installed, there is a chance that a connector pin will get crushed and short out to nearby pins. If none of those work, you might want to try a larger wattage power supply. Good luck.
