P4 Titan GA-8ST800 Motherboard USB Power Failure

The motherboard USB connectors are not supplying power to anything connected to them. Any USB device connected to them that is connected to a USB externally powered hub are working well.Is there a fuse ( probably SM ) on the motherboard that may have failed? The computer has no other issues and runs great.

    It is very interesting that this motherboard has a suppy voltage but no fuse. I am now wondering if there is a regulator onboard that has failed. Are there any images or documention that could lead me to a SM regulator for this? I would like to repair the board before going with a slot card but that idea would "repair" the problem.

    I ended up finding a bad SM fuse on the motherboard and replaced it this afternoon. While I was at it, found the 5 volt regulator for the USB DC supply.

    Ended up working like a champ and my computer is working fine again.

You can also install a PCI USB add-on card in your machine, that will give you more usb port, it happens a lot that the usb's fail on a motherboard, there is no fuse to reset them...soryy

Hope this is helpfull...Good luck

Cheers

Had a Bio Tech Motherboard installed with 2 G DDR2 Memory used Intel Celleron Chip (2.4 Gig HZ) . Problem-on Board Video goes blurry. USB ports after a few seconds hold no power. Tried memory, all cords...


The only common denominator is the computer power supply.
It is also possible that a power regulator on the motherboard is bad. I suspect its is the 5 volt power rail. The two common supplies on your motherboard are 12 volts and 5 volts. USB uses the 5v supply.
The simplest solution is to borrow another similar power rated computer power supply and put it in yours to see if the problem is fixed. If your power supply is rated at (for example) 250 watts or even as large as 400w, make sure the replacement is the same rating or even larger ie replace 250 w with a 250 w or a 400 w, but do not use a lower rated power supply. ie dont try a 250w to replace a 400w supply.
If the problem is still there another motherboard is the likely next step.
Before spending bucks, you could try disconnecting anything not really required to see if the power supply is indeed failing (often a burning smell from the rear fan is a good indicator). Disconnect things like dvd drive, cd burner, anything on the USB ports eg printer, external hard drives, modem, extra cards inserted into the motherboard on PCI slots etc etc, but leave the mouse and keyboard if they are USB devices. This will ease the load on the power supply and/or the motherboard power regulators. Basically you want a motherboard with only RAM memory, a processor and a video card with only a keyboard, mouse and monitor and the main bootable hard drive connected, and nothing else. See if you can get it working without the extra bits attached. you could then try shutting down and re-attaching devices one by one until the problem occurs. This could either prove the last connected device is drawing too much current, or more likely the power supply is failing as the load increases.
My bet is the power supply and they are cheap to buy. Make sure you buy the right supply. It might be an ATX supply with a 20 pin main connector which attaches to the motherboard (big chunky white connector). There are 24 pin models which don't generally work on the older motherboards that use the Celeron chips.
Good luck,
Steve

Asus A8N-VM CSM wont boot, no fans come on or anything, green light comes on the motherboard, is the CPU dead? tried different ram still the same. any help would be great!


CHECK ALL JUMPER ON THE BOARD AND MAKE SURE THE BOIS RESET JUMPER IS ON JUMPER 1-2, SOUND LIKE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM NOT ENOUGH WATT TO RUN THE SYSTEM

2ND OPTION, REMOVE ALL WIRE AND ADDTIONAL CARDS, MIN. MEMORY, LEAVING 1 STICK OF RAM, VEDOI CONNECTION , AND THE POWER TO THE BOARD, CONNECT ONE WIRE AT A TIME AND RESTARTING THE MACHINE EVERY TIME UNTIL YOU FIND THE PROBLEM.

Graphics card issue - GA-0ST800 Motherboard


Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.

Good luck

12v 4-pin connector issues


Sounds like your board has some issues (might of even caused your power supply to fail) try unplugging all IDE devices, removing pci slotted cards and anything else plugged into the board so you are only left with the Motherboard, Processor and Memory. Try to start the board now to see if one of your devices was causing the problem. If the board now comes on, try installing the devices back one by one to see which one is causing the problem. If that still doesn't work, try to further test your possible to see if they are working correctly. If all that fails, your board is probably the cause and needs to be replaced. Good Luck.
