A8N32-SLI : fan works but doesn't boot

Our 1 y/o son toppled over our 1.5 y/o home-built computer and now it is kaput. All the fans start up, HD powers up, DVD opens/closes, but system doesn't boot (no beeps), keyboard lights do not toggle on/off, no video.

I have checked for loose/missing jumpers. I have reseated cards.

    Thanks for your reply. Why would part of the motherboard not get power but the fans/LED/HDD/DVD still power up? I reseated the 4-pin ATX12V and 24-pin EATXPWR power cables but I did not thoroughly inspect them for damage, thinking that since everything else powered up they must be okay. I can check them tonight.

Have you checked the power cables that connect to the motherboard? Assuming it was not mechanically damaged in the fall it sounds like it's not getting power.

    The fans, HDD, and DVD all get their power from individual connectors, but you're right about the LED's. They get their power from the motherboard. I was just thinking that the power connector might have dislodged in the fall. I don't think the connectors would be damaged by the fall.



    Another unlikely problem (but worth checking) is the processor. Could it have been dislodged in the fall? Take the CPU fan off and verfiy the processor is still securely in it's socket.

Hi,
It seems you have not made the second SATA the slave of first SATA. You'll have to fix the jumper pin in the designated slot to make the second SATA the slave. a1d66e3.jpg

Fan not working on a8n-sli delux


Hi wilson756168,
Here is the link to buy a new replacement chipset fan:
http://estore.asus.com/shop/category.asp?catid=131
You'll need to become a member & sign into Asus to order a new chipset fan or you can call Asus directly. I know there are four black pins with tiny springs on the back side of the board under the fan. Its been so long since I changed one of these. It may be best to wait until the new one comes in before removing the bad one. Another option would be to call Asus tech at 1-812-282-2787 IL M-F 8-5:00PM EST and ask for "How to remove fan" from a tech.
Or you can buy a better chipset fan that will last longer & cool far greater than Asus fan.
(Best option).

Good luck wilson!

New build computer wont turn on (ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939)


The ATX power supply needs to have pin16(PS_On#) to be connected to COM for it to work. When you press the power switch on the front panel of the computer, you are essentially making this connection. Check that the cable from the power supply to the motherboard is making good connection. You can verify operation of the power supply by shorting Pin16 to pin17 on the powersupply output, with a paper clip. Pin16 is usually a green wire and 17 is black. Hope this helps. -Vish

Motherboard not starting Bios but fans start


Yes, had exactly the same problem earlier this week, the bios chip may be faulty, as you know all other components work, so it's down to the motherboard and a replacement is required
