Question about ASUS P5B-E Motherboard

2 Answers

Using an Asus P5B -E Plus motherboard for 2 years now with no problems. But when I boot up my computer now i get 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps and no display on my monitor. I have to reset the CPU to get the same series of beeps, but then I will get the display back and the computer will boot up normally. However, it seems I can no longer run the game I play properly, World of Warcraft. I get stuttering, cracking sounds and very bad frame lag when I try to tab out of the game. I am unable to pinpoint the problem I have presently and need assistance. If possible please explain step by step as I do not have alot of experience or knowledge on troubleshooting my CPU.

    I apologize, but when you say my chipset is failing, do u mean the graphics card or motherboard?

    Also, what do u mean by the 'onboard' in the bios? I am unable to find that option in my bios.

This beep code is described from ASUS as a video card issue. Perhaps your chipset is failing. if you are using a 3rd party video card. try removing it or re attaching it. If you are not using a 3rd party. i suggest you do. and disable the onboard in the bios.

    if you dont have an option in your BIOS to change from onboard video to PCI or PCIe then all you have to do is install a new video card and the drivers that come with it. and it should solve the problem.

    where you plug your video cable into the back of the PC, on the inside...is it a connection directly onto the main board or is there a card in a slot ?What kinkjc is reerring to, is if the video is attached to the mainboard,purchase a video card that goes into one of the slots,but you may have to disable video in the BIOS for the"onboard video" altho that has not been my experience

3 beep at the start


Thats a standard mother board warning...back when i built a few computers i got this all the time it meant "no Memory" or no ram chips were installed or that the memory was not compatible it should just beep three times with about a second delay in between each beep...then thats your problem...your ram might be dead! if it has 3 short beeps and boots up fine it could just be a start up beep i know of older computers beeping quickly 3 times before booting....though ive never delt with asus boards only Intel. but i doubt it would be much different
hope this helps,ben

Asus P5B -E Plus motherboard Beeping during bootup (Repost)


If you are hearing the code right. 1 then 3 you can have a cpu bad or bad memory, remove memory or find (borow) new. try that, also try a new battery Time error. Then start from scratch - take everything loose from the board nothing but the board, one stick of memory, no hard drive, no video card, if you get the same code your cpu is going. If you get different code try the video card if you get the old code thats the problem. Clear as mud? Yep clear as mud.

No boot and beeps


The exact fault code indicates RAM or a problem accessing the RAM.
Check that you are using recommended/Approved RAM as ASUS and ASROCK (the budget arm of ASUS) are notoriously fussy with RAM.
If it all checks out then your northbridge could be dead and it will probably be scrap.

ASUS MOTHERBOARD P5B-MX WIFI WON'T DISPLAY


Are you sure the onboard video is working? Try an external card and see if this works. All the beeps when you remove the memory is good because you know the processor is working.Are you sure you have the right memory? Some machines won't boot or anything when you have the wrong memory.

Asus p5b-mx motherboard not showing display but every thing is on


Hi camlamm, check out Asus CPU supported list link;
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-MX&os=17
See if your CPU is in the list.
Bios not booting? If you are receiving any display on your monitor the trouble is not the graphics card. Suggest you clear the cmos jumper. See page 1-26 instructions your manual. This Asus board is warranted for three years. If nothing gives you access to the bios, suggest you call Asus tech, M-F, 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST at: 1-812-282-2787.

Good luck camlamm!

2 Sata Hdd not supported


Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB.
There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port.
The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual.
All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu.
At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

4 seconds long beep


I think that either you have a bad power supply or it is not connected properly. I suppose it could also not be supplying enough power.

Try disconnecting all of the connections to the Motherboard and reconnecting them. Make sure they seat properly. Try a new power supply. You can get a good one from Newegg.com

Have you installed RAM? If not the machine will not boot. You may also need to enter the BIOS setup to set the CPU and DRAM voltages and multiplyers etc. Follow the instructions in the manual for setting up the CPU info in the BIOS. Are you sure your PSU has enough guts to run the setup? Many times have i seen setups fail because a cheap power supply has been overstretched.
