Smps on but display not showing

A) Check the monitor cable on a KNOWN to be working computer,
Use the monitor cable from the working computer on yours.

Monitor cable does not remove?
Use the monitor, AND monitor cable; on a KNOWN to be working computer.

B) SMPS may have a weak voltage power rail

[There are 3;
A) 3.3 Volts
B) 5 Volts
C) 12 Volts
ALL are DC Voltage.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC ]

1) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor (CPU) can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

This is why you may see LED's light, and maybe fans spin, but NOT enough power to turn the Processor on.

Use a multimeter set to DC Voltage, and check the 3 power rails.

ALL Orange wires you see are 3.3 Volts
ALL Red wires are 5 Volts
ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volts
ALL Black wires are Ground wires

Use a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply; for a temporary test unit.

Also, FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures, with your unplugged from power computer.
DO NOT reach inside your computer if you are not.
Do not know what Anti-Static Procedures are?
Post back in a Comment.

PLUS, remove the Ram Memory modules ('Stick'), and reinstall them. One of them may be bumped loose.

NO. You cannot see it by eye alone. Remove, and reinstall.
This way you are ASSURED they/it, are installed tightly, and correctly.

Cooler Master 1000w Silent Pro M not compatible with MSI MS-7548 (Aspen) motherboard?

So you're using the same CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable on both rigs?
(One of them)

Yes, I see it's a modular cable design, and the CPU 4+4 Pin x2 power cable, can be used as a single 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

ALL Yellow wires are 12 Volt (DC) wires.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

ALL 12 Volt wires go to ONE single 12 Volt power rail, in the Power Supply, BUT; there is nothing saying an individual Yellow wire may be bad.
This is why I wondered if you are using the SAME power cable CONNECTOR. Same power cable.

Then suggest it has something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

Not aware of any setting to change in BIOS Setup utility - Power.

BUT, I do not know everything! lol!

IMHO there is no reason it will not work, unless as said; something to do with the Active PFC circuit.

From here let's hope someone who really knows what is going on, will post.

I purchased a ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO motherboard and a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition.... i have everything plugged right and its not getting any bower, it's a 480W... Do i need more?


The Power Supply Unit might either be faulty or under-powered, or their might be another cause.

Eliminate the posibilities one-by-one.

Remove the motherboard and make sure there are no misaligned mounting points or loose screws under the motherboard, shorting the solder points under the motherboard when you switch the power on.

Reinstall the motherboard carefully, making sure the Power Sopply Unit connector is fitted correctly and fully pressed into its socket. If it is a 2 part connector 20 + 4 pins, make sure the 2 part fit together in the correct orientation.

Make sure the Front Panel Control Header Pins are fitted in the correct orientation.

Make sure the CPU and Heatsink are fitted correctly.

Make sure the CPU fan is connected.

Make sure the RAM is properly in the RAM slots.

Make sure the Graphics Card and any other PCI cards are properly in their slots.

Connect only the CPU Power Cable, the Hard Drive power cable and any Graphics card power cable (if you have a separate Graphics Card and it has a power connector) and, leaving the computer open and flat on the floor so you can see all parts inside, test the computer again.

If it works, shut the computer down, add the CD/DVD drive power cable, and then the case fans, testing as you add each extra device.

Upgrade to a 650W PSU if you experience any failure or slow spinning of fans.

Afre installing the new PSU, clear the BIOS by disconnecting the power cable and removing the small, silver CMOS battery for 2 minutes and then reinstalling it and then restarting the computer.

If none of this works, then the Motherbard might either have a BIOS corruption or a power management fault and should be returned to the supplier under warranty for like-for-like or higher specification replacement or a full refund.

What do I need and what wires should be run to be able to run a VCR/DVD player and a laptop to a single projector?

RCA cable - will be used for the DVD player. pcsyke_17.jpg

VGA pcsyke_18.jpg DVI pcsyke_19.jpg
VGA/ DVI cable - can be used but it depends on the projector inputs. you can run DVD player and laptop to your projector but simultaneously only.
Kindly give feedback if I helped you. Thank you for posting.

Plugged old an older HD into my custom pc and now no video appears on screen.? I was trying to help my wife retrieve old photos from her ancient 800mhz hp computer so i took the hd out of her pc and put...


What you need to do is put the old HD in as a spare drive, not replace the one in the computer. Each drive can be either a Master or Slave. The pin settings are usually written on the drive. Once the computer boots to the regular drive, the OS will recongize the spare drive and give you the ability to open it and get your photos off of it. Make sure that when you start the computer that the cables are seated correctly on the board. The Master drive once you set the pin settings on the drive should be plugged into the Primary IDE controller, which is the plug closest to the edge of the board. Then the secondary drive, or slave once you set the pin settings, should go in the secondary IDE controller, which is the one right behind the primary. Then give it a try. Also, the older HD, what is the brand and model, maybe it's not compatible with the Intel board?

Thanks Mark

I can't find how to connect my dvd writer to the Asus Rampage II Extreme motherboard. The missed pin in the connection cable is in a different location

If you are trying to connect your DVD Writer using an IDE cable, then:
1. First, make sure that you are connecting the IDE cale in the correct direction. Make sure that the Red (or colored) wire in the cable aligns with pin 1 in the connector.
2. If the cable & connector are aligned correctly, then try to find a replacement IDE cable without a missed pin or with the missed pin in the correct position. This can cause no harm to neither the DVD Writer nor the motherboard.

Wont boot.

normally this happens if your MB sensor circuitry is not detecting the correct speed of your fan or the correct temp of your system and proc. Try to Load the default settings of your bios and test again. if still having same problem what I suggest is check the 12volts output and 5 volts output of your PSU. To check it you need a Multimeter set to DC volts and put the negative probe to the black wire in a standard PSU plug and the red probe to the yellow cable (for 12v) and for the 5 volts just transfer the red probe to the red cable. If you have the correct voltage output, you have to hot wire your Proc Fan to get DC supply directly from your PSU. Your Proc Fan normally runs using 12volts DC.

Hope this helps.

Dvd rom wont register

thats maybe due to the data cable thats the flat cable that transfer the data from your motherboard to the dvd in the back of your hard drive and the back of your dvd there are some pins and a little block made by plastic . that is call a jumper and thats what does the settings for your drivers and on top of the hard drive it has a diagram to set them the dvd has that one to but is on the back next to the power conexion so your hard drive needs to be set as master and if they are using the same data cable the dvd needs to be set as slave

Just purchased this motherboard, can't get bios to boot

just be sure...
take out everything, except the the power cable and the little speaker. try to turn it on. there will beep sounds. if not, the problem is the board. if there's sound, check connections.

also tell me the model of it, if possible.
after turning it on, check the power and hd leds, if they are on, or blinking.

check if hd and dvd are both jumpered as master. try removing both, just to try to get the bios working.

and one last thing, check it there's a intrusion jumper on board, if yes turn it off.
