Question about ASUS KFN4-D16/1U Motherboard

3 Answers

ASUS KFN4-D16/SAS doesn't start

Start as i turn on the power supply, no need to use the server's power switch but unfortunately nothing happens on screen, no way to go in bios mode, the green led on the board is on and both cpu's fans are running full rpm. Very noisy but very unfunctional. The recovery bios function doesn't work. All the jumpers and wires are OK. This is the first server i worked on, maybe i have missed something. What is solution to have it run ? May you help me ? Thanks.

    Thanks for your advise. I really appreciate how fast i got options to look over from you guys but it looks like a bad assembly in the board itself or maybe a corrupted bios or non-programmed bios and i don't have a replacement chip to follow up so i'm going to exchange it at the supplier i got it.

Hello, I would start with the power box, check to see if you have the right one, if power box works then the only other thing is the motherboard may need to be replaced. make sure you dont have a screw shorting the motherboad out. it sounds like a short on the motherboard.

I HV PURCHASED P5BV-E/SAS EARLIER BUT TODAY I SWITCH ON THE SERVER BUT THEIR IS NO DISPLAY


Hello you can download the manual here:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=5&s=13&m=P5BV-E%2fSAS&os=23&hashedid=zuljCoD6sSH3WpYx

By selecting your windows system.
Open the manual folder and click on global for download.
You need adobe reader to read the content.

This is usually a hardware problem, Video card, power supply, memory sticks or mother
board. To nail down the problem, try the following workarrounds:

1. Does this computer work well before? If yes, what new hardware did you install recently? Remove it and try.

2. Insert one ram module, and turn on the
computer, if the computer POSTs or you hear beeps, try to add one memory
stick each time until you add all your memory sticks.

3. Clear your CMOS by removing the battery or short the jumper.

4.
Swap your hardware from the motherboard, for example, reseating your ram sticks, move video card from PCI slot 1 to PCI slot 2, etc.

5. Reseat your processor, check the CPU for damage.

6. Verify that you have all the power connectors connected properly.

7. Make sure the power supply is working, even test it on another pc.

Remember
to restart your computer after you try any of the above steps. If all
the above does not work, it is very possible that your motherboard is
bad.

The LED in my motherboard is on, but if i turn on the switch, their is no response. the power connection is correct. but it doesn't work


Try swapping the power button connection with the reset button connection. Then to turn on your computer you will need to press the reset button. If that works you have a faulty power button. Otherwise try using a different PSU. One that you know works. If that doesn't help the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Compaq proliant 5500 server wont power up


In my experience when a server/computer does absolutely nothing when the power button is pressed it is a dead processor. That may not be the case in your situation. It could be as simple as a defective power switch. Is the switch a soft touch or does it push in and click? Does the switch feel normal when pushed? One of the power supplies could also be bad. Do you have any good power supplies to test in the server? Were there any power outages recently that could have caused damage to the PSU? I would start with checking the switch. You could hook up a circuit tester and see if the switch completes the circuit when depressed. Also take a look inside the server and look for any loose connections on the mainboard. It is possible the wire for the power switch has come loose.
