Re: cup fan erro

Firt remove the covering of the cabinet then locate a battery take it out rub it for few seconds.Place it back the way it was.Now if you have another cpu fan port on the mother board then plug your cpufans cable to it.Now restart your computer start pressing F2 ie bios settings.Now check the time and date. restart it again. See if it fixes the problem.

ASUS M2N VM DVI trouble

You must replace the processor cooler, the fan on it has aged and it's no longer doing its job properly. And use a good thermal paste.
BTW that software was designed to notify you of the temperatures and nothing more, reinstall it immediately.

Power Reaching the MB but NOT reaching the cpu fan

Either replace the line to the fan (or get a new fan with a longer cord )or leave the side door of your CPU off a bit and maybe put a fan beside it.

Once installed Asus A8N SLi will not boot up in Vista 64 bit


Make sure that you have the lastest Firmware installed in your BIOS.

Also run Windows Vista Upgrade Wizard before installing Vista to check for compatability.

Need help with pci express on my mobo I can’t get the PCI-E X16 slot to work on my new/old 939 mobo. It’s an old socket 939, but new, right out of the package. Might be presumptive of me to dump all this info here, but the computer is for my homemade lab and I teach high school in a poor neighborhood, so any help you might give is for a good cause. Here are the build’s specs: CPU: Athlon 64 Fx55 Mobo: AN8 VM with Nvidia 6150 onboard, with a pci-e x16 slot Mem: 2x 1gb sticks of DDR 400 PSU: 600 Watt Corsair When I tried to install a new pci-e x16 card, Radeon HD 5450, the monitor gets no signal. The computer comes on, does not post (keyboard does not light up), cpu fan and PSU fan both turn on, but nothing else happens. When I then take the pci-e card out and plug the monitor cord into the onboard video card, everything works fine, but ONLY if I take the pci-e card out. When I leave the pci-e card in and plug the cord into the onboard card there’s still no signal Things I’ve tried already: I plugged the card into another computer. It works. I plugged another pci-e x16 video card, an 8800gt, into this build and the same things happen, no signal. Tried with both the onboard card’s manufacturer’s driver and the standard window’s driver and tried both of these with them enabled and disabled and uninstalled in device manager Did most of the trouble shooting here with each of the three latest versions of bios available for my machine. BIOS settings I tried: Under Northbridge configuration there are a few seemingly relevant categories of parameters that can be tweaked, “VGA Options” and “Primary Graphics Adapter” are the ones I adjusted, but to no avail. Under “VGA Options” the choices are ‘Enable’ and ‘Auto’, the descriptions in BIOS of what they do is somewhat muddled. For ‘Enable’ it says: “enable onboard VGA, this should be chosen only when nvidia external VGA was installed.” The Auto description states: “disable onboard VGA if external”. The other parameters of interest, “Primary Graphics Adapter” has two options: “PCI->PCI-E->IGP” and “IGP->PCI-E->IGP” Mostly I troubleshot with “Auto” on and “PCI->PCI-E->IPCIGP” as that seemed to make sense. Other BIOS parameters that I didn’t try to adjust, but might be relevant are: OnChip VGA Frame Buffer OnChip VGA Trap Enable Under Hypertransport Configuration LDT to Geforce frequency Repost video on S3 resume Then there’s the IRQ stuff, under which there’s an option to “Allocate IRQ to VGA.” I think the choice3 is to have Bios do so automatically. The mobo is right out of the package and everything else works like a charm. My two 1 gb mem sticks might nit match. Everything is clean and all connections have been checked and double checked, what’s more I’ve tested the cards and monitor and they work. It must be either the pci-e X16 slot is broken somehow but hopefully I’m missing something in BIOS which someone here can shed some light on. Thanks in advance.
