Question about ASUS P4S533 Motherboard

2 Answers

Argh...this is a toughy!!

Ok, I have this computer that when turns on.....everything powers on but the video. There are also no posts sounds. I've already done all the basic stuff......HOWEVER, the hard drive said invalid system disk or something when I tried to boot it in another computer. BUT, I can access the hard drive as a slave. Anyway....I tried a windows xp cd....but got the blue screen trying to do a clean format....but that probably has something to do with the I would have to totally format that as a slave I guess.
Furthermore, on the other problem.....I'm sure it's probably the motherboard...but is there a sure fire way of telling if it's the MB or CPU? I took the fan and heatsink of the CPU and powered on briefly (couple of seconds).... the processor got really that makes me think that it's the motherboard...or bios. Any comments? Thanks,

    Actually that was the second thing I did...nope doesn't work. I've done everything....even taken the motherboard out and booted on the bench. I think it's either the motherboard itself mostly.....but I don't think it's the processor.

Dell 1800fp dead

Each monitor has a different response to "no activity" from the system. So for the monitor, if you get a chance, try your monitor on another machine that you know does function. At work, neighbour, or other.

For the computer, does the it (beep) or POST (Power On Selft Test) when you turn it on, do you see and hear what you would if the monitor was connected?

If it sounds normal, then everything should be fine and luck might have it, your backup monitor is not working either, try another one from the same friend or neighbour above.

If it doesn't POST, you could have a video or other card or ribbon connection loose in the computer. Either you or a friend, or the service center, whichever feels comfortable reseating all the external and internal equipment, bearing in mind static electricity and proper handling measures for the computer.

My ASUS K50IJ sound comes from only one speaker. I've tryed everything and the balance seems ok

One of the speakers failed or it has a bad connection.Most likely the non working speaker will need to be replaced.

Heard a pop while running ps3 then went dead. Have no red light or anything when turning it on. I've tried everything.

Unfortunately that sounds like your PSU (power supply) shorted, contact Sony to see about warranty replacement if it's still available...

Sounds like you've replaced everything but the backlight itself!
If you have another working unit, connect this LCD panel to the working unit and see if it works. If it's still dark, you need to replace the FL tube (backlight(s) ).

I installed everything the CPU, RAM, and everything else. Connected all switches at the right places and the BIOS is on normal operation. I turn on the computer and its a blank screen nothing shows up....

ok, looking at the specifications All I can recommend is the following. double check the Video card to make sure it is properly seated and that it does not exceed the capabilities of the motherboard. 2 Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and case wiring/power supply and turn the computer on. If the system completes the post test, you will hear at least 1 beep and should hear several for the video card not being connected, then start installing components 1 at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Start with the Video card and then the ram as these are most likely where your problem is unless you have a faulty power supply which will be the problem if you don't get a completed post with nothing else connected.

The fan speed is controlled by the processor and BIOS. It is on full speed when it starts, but the processor turns it down again as soon as it starts to run.
Could be loose memory modules or the processor heatsink has come loose. Try taking off the back compartments and check everything is fitted OK.

Flatbed scanner

take a volt meter and check the power at the end of the power adapter, sounds like it may be a power issue. if all is ok on that end does it still work on the old system? you may have to hook it back up to a working system and see if there is a firmware upgrade for it. Best of luck
