Re: trobble booting

My guess is that your cpu or other major component fried. the same thing happened to me. check for proper connections, thermal grease properly applied, ect. there are many many problems that cause this however. try listening for beeps and matching them on a "beep chart". you can find them on the internet. good luck and hopefully this helps. im assuming you recently obtained the parts, so if any parts are broken you can simply return/exchange. nice build btw.

I have an asus pn5sli mobo with 8 gig ram, nvidia 9800gt gpu,running windows 7 and am having crash issues.can you update bios using a usb as I have no 1.44 floppy installed and can you increase ram voltage...

Hello download your files here:

Download asus update in the utility for 64 bit system
Next download the latest bios
Please unzip the files before you install.

Install asus update and select update bios from file.
This can be done while the system is running.
Select the bios file you have downloaded
and the program does the rest.

Remember to download the right bios.Flashing the bios with a wrong file will damage the mainboard !!!!!!!!!!!!
And you need to set up bios when the job is done (the boot sequence)

Good luck

Power to the mobo

Without having the specs on the motherboard or knowing how old it is, it's difficult to say if it is beyond repair. Although my experience with computers shutting down that quickly while attempting to boot have been a problem related to processor overheating. Processors get very hot within seconds of powering on. If the processor cooling fan or the thermal paste is not working as intended the system will shut down quickly. You may want to check those two possibilities before purchasing a new motherboard.

Boots up for ~15 sec. then shuts down

Usually a motherboard will shut the system down to save itself. So check that the fans are spinning and that the heatsink is properly seated. You should also test in a minimum configuration be removing all add in cards, disconnecting all drives and unnecessary cables, and removing all but one memory module. If this doesn't point out the faulty components then either the motherboard (most likely) or CPU (less likely) is faulty.

Pentium D problem

Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!
