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!

    The chipset is the same from my old mobo. It doesn't even go to the bios so that won't work. The reset button just blinks red. The green mobo light goes on but the hard drive one doesn't come on at on. Would it be the hard drive? I thought the bios would at least come on if it twas the hrd drive and display an error message but nothing comes up. Could it be the cpu?

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: http://support.asus.com/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or

If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

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.

Make sure power is connected to video card, Check standoffs, make sure no extras shorting mobo, Make sure video card is plugged in slot properly. Post mobo - cpu - ram - video card out of case. if all ok then mount with proper standoffs.

Motherboar fail, no video, power supply ok help


Hello,
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.

EMachine stopped displaying video (card not working, just mobo)


Hi there

I would say it's the graphics card that's failed. You might get the same beeps for faulty card as removed card....

Take it to a shop where they can test a compatible card, before they sell you one or install one for you.

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?

New pc won't boot


Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem. hope this helps
