Question about ASUS P4P800SE Motherboard

Asus P4P800 SE used to work, now it doesn't boot

Asus P4P800 SE used to work flawlessly, now only the green led on the motherboard is on when the power cables are connected. When the power switch is pressed nothing happens (neither CPU fan, nor Power Supply Fan start rotating). I've tried circumventing the powerswith by connecting the appropriate connectors on the motherboard with a piece of metal (eg a screwdriver), but the computer just won't boot up.

Does anyone now a solution to my problem?

    I have the same problem. The old ATX PSU wasn't able to give enough power, the LED on the mobo was blinking. So it tried a not ATX PSU and voilá the LED lights green. But it doesn't start anything either. How comes that? Is the motherboard dead or my Non-ATX PSU not enough?

    On the back of the power supply is an off/on switch. Switch it to off. Watch the standby green led. Wait for it to go off. Switch the power supply back to on. Press the power on button on your case. Does the system boot?

Asus gives this as the board memory spec:

-4 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 4GB DDR400/333/266 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory

I suspect you bought DDR2 type memory.

I'm trying to boot to USB from my P4P800 SE. The problem seems to be that I have to enable some type of emulation in the BIOS. Is there any way around this?

some bios are able to boot with the (f12) key and then you pick which device you wish to boot with otherwise you must enter the bios and set the first boot device to boot your usb

Start up problem with Asus P4P800

How old is your power supply (PS)?

You are able to boot by removing the two HD since they are consuming much from the PS. Try a 500 watt PS.

Hope this helps!

No. Your board can support any AGP video card.
But it does not support any PCI-E cards.
