Question about ASUS M2V Motherboard

2 Answers

My pc is going insane and so am I!

I just bought a M2V mobo because the video card port on my od one burnt out. I tried connecting everything together but something is wrong somewhere. When I power the computer up it just continuously restarts itself. The red reset button stays on constantly and the green light doesn't come on at all. The dvd drives continuously make a clicking sound. I tried connecting just one dvd drive and set it to slave. When I do that the red light blinks instead of staying solid but then the dvd drive keeps opening and closing on it's own. Can someone please help me out? I've been without a computer for way too long!

You need to reinstall a new operating system because you are using different motherboard especially if the chipset of your previous motherboard is very much different from your present.
you need to go to the bios set-up upon booting and make sure cdrom is set to priority boot and insert your bootable OS installer on your cdrom because if your sytem will boot-up from your hard drive with Operating System from different motherboard, it will continuously restart.

You need to go back into your manual and take a good look at the pin configuration connected from the Mb to your case. ASUS has a great site to help installing a new board. Check this out:

Powers up, fans work, but nothing happens. Can not even get into the Bios. red light on between the power connection and the IDE connections?

I will assume that you have everything connected properly and are using the integrated video on the motherboard (not a separate video card installed in a slot). Usually the red light on the motherboard (mobo) is a power-on light, meaning that it is plugged in to a power socket.

First try to clear your CMOS settings:
Unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for 15 minutes. If your mobo has a BIOS reset jumper, move it to the Clear position and back to normal. If you aren't sure what these things are, it will be in your manual that came with the mobo. Now re-connect everything and try again. Make sure that you are plugging the video cable into the proper socket and your monitor is working. If you can use a DVI cable on that board, try that connector. Make sure your monitor is working.
>Visually check for failed capacitors; caps that have ruptured are increasingly common and can stop booting.
>Your CPU may have failed; this is a typical situation then the chip fails. Everything works except there is no video on the monitor.

My inno GeForce 9600 GT gives a blank screen when used with my Asus M2V Motherboard. Is there a fix?

Simple test: try to boot in the BIOS - if you can't then the defect is hardware, either the video card or the motherboard have failed.
Another simple test to find out which: take out the GeForce , connect the monitor directly to the motherboard and try to go into the BIOS: if you can it's the video card, if you can't it's the motherboard.

No video after replacing chip fan

Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

After all your troubleshooting, I think this is likely to be as a result of your processor over-heating, maybe because of your environment, or because the fan is not cooling the processor properly again. Therefore my suggestion would be for you to unscrew your system (If you can do it by yourself), and try to clean, or better still replace your processor fan.
If you cant do it by yourself, you can easily get a technician to do it for you. This solution is actually if your processor is not yet burnt.
But if your processor is burnt, then you might have to change it to a new compatible one. but before changing it, try to test the motherboard with another working, compatible processor first, just to be more sure.
Then always make sure that your PC is in a well ventilated, cool environment and that the environment is free from dusts.
Hope this helps you out.

Motherboar fail, no video, power supply ok help

Firstly, remove the RAM and turn on the system, if you hear the beep sound continuously that means everything is perfect expect RAM.
Clean the track of RAM at both sides by pencil eraser completely.
Also clean the port of RAM.

Secondly reinstall the CPU with CPU FAN and also clean the FAN.

Third one is that remove all the add-on's card and than turn on the system.

PC Not Starting

When you say "...put computers back together..." what does that mean?

Check video cable pins. Check disk drive connector...make sure they are pushed in tight on mobo and drive connector.

Ga-k8ns pro motherboard/ pc self build

Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?
