Power but doesnt start

Hi!

I just got a new mainboar (asus p5kws) and a new pc-case (arctic cooling silentum t2). I installed everything and the first halfhour it worked just fine, but then the pc shut down and couldn´t be restarted. If i open the case i see that the mainboard gets power (the green light is on), but if i press the power button the only thing that happens is that all the fans spins 2 millimeter then it stops.
Please help me!

Change the power supply. I know that is ''special'' power supply but this is the problem. I have the same problem with 90% of this cases in work! Try with another Power supply you will see.

Sounds like you are not getting a "power good" signal from the mobo telling the power supply to turn on. Something is probably wrong with the configuration or installation of parts. Try removing the RAM and all interface connectors and then see if will power up.
Make sure the power supply is set to the correct A/C voltage for your reigon.
Could be the motherboard is cmoing into contact with the chassis or something else.
Make sure the processor is inserted correctly and seated.

If it powers up. begin connecting the RAM and try again. Keep connecting something else one at a time until it fails. That will be the problem.

I want to upgrade the motherboard in my Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G PC Desktop. Is this possible or does sony use a nonstandard configured motherboard?


Hi:
I have only worked on one of these Sony desktops, and it is really very proprietary, where you would be better off buying a new case to install a new motherboard in. The sony looks really slick, but everything about it is odd: The power supply, the cooling fan for the cpu, etc. It would be a lot easier to save what you can and move it to a new project!

Video card shut down


you probably need a higher watt power supply in your case. Most stock ones are only about 350 watt. you'l need like a 450 watt or better with that power hungry card.

Video controller problem PLEASE HELP !!!


Hi bullterrier0,
The Asus P4S8X-MX uses an onboard video controller, (SiS Real 256E graphics card).
There is an order of sequences that must be followed when adding another video card on to the motherboard. If these are not followed your new card will not function correctly. Shut down the system. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case.
Please remove any graphics cards you may have added into the system, (For now). Once removed leave your case open & plug the power cord back into the PC. Press the start button. Start pressing the Delete key every two seconds as the PC starts up.
The bios main menu will load. Instruction on how to move about within the bios is listed at the bottom of the menu. You will need the P4S8X-MX manual. (If you no longer have the manual you can download it from Asus by clicking on this link:
http://support.asus.com.tw/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4S8X-MX&SLanguage=en-us
Click the plus sign next to; Manual. Find the English manual.
Create a folder on you're desktop & name it Manual. Download the manual. Save the manual into the folder. The manual will need Adobe pdf reader to be viewed. If you do not have Adobe you can download it for free from this link:
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Once into the bios go to the title Advanced, page 2-17 in your manual or page 59 in Adobe pdf viewer. Open Chipset sub-menu.
Than find, Primary Graphics Adapter page 2-21 in manual, pg 63 in Adobe.
If the TV turner card is an AGP set this to [AGP] & set AGP Fast Write Control to [Enabled].
If you are using a PCI TV tuner card set this to [PCI]. Save the bios & exit. The PC will auto restart. Press & hold the power on button until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Re-insert you're AGP TV video card. Double check all internal connectors for good connecting before closing the case. Plug in the PC's power cord & start the system. Once windows has finished loading install the TV video cards driver software.
If you installed software drivers for the P4S8X-MX other than driver software provided by Asus please uninstall that software through Add/Remove programs. (If at all possible).

Since you want to use a TV video card you can not use the onboard graphics card at the same time. This is why windows was restarting. Windows did not know which card to load. Once the onboard card has been disabled by telling the bios to load the AGP, (Assuming you're TV card is an AGP card) windows should run fine. There is always the possibility I interpreted your trouble incorrectly. If this is the case, please let me know & I'll adjust my answer to fit the issue.

Good luck bullterrier0!

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up


It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?
