Re: monitor wont come out of standby

You got two outlooks, a fried motherboard or a fried component. If you have integrated graphics then its probably your motherboard, if you have your own, separate graphics card installed then it could have to do with your graphics card.

Google is your friend. It might not be damaged hardware, just some bug.

No video after boot up


Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device in question is the graphics chipset.

The Operating System is now Windows 7 64-bit.

You were running Windows XP -> 32bit

(Have you got audio? Sound)

This is why I repeatedly try to tell people;

before trying to upgrade to frickin Windows 7!

Yes sir; sure are.

+ VGA (3)
Suggest use the oldest version -
AMD VGA driver V8 631.0.0

The reason Windows XP blue screened is because the Integrated Graphics of the Asus M4A785TD-V motherboard couldn\'t handle the game.

You need a graphics card. A PCI Express graphics card inserted into the BLUE PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

(Remember; Install the software F-I-R-S-T, then unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions; and THEN physically install the graphics card.
Software; The Installation Disk for the graphics card.
Has the Drivers, and user interface.
User Interface: Catalyst Control Center for ATI graphics cards;
Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia graphics cards)

M4A785TD-M EVO Motherboard will not boot.


From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue

Please try the following

1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed

The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do

I hope this helps

First Hello. Before few days,when I turn on my PC(but I was unpluged my machine from electricity) and on monitor displays CMOS wrong set date/time,cpu frequensy.I hit BIOS set up sittings and Windows xp...

Replacing the bios battery was the correct thing to do. Answer me this. The Asus motherboard should have a green LED light lit (Standby power LED), when the system is turned off. Also keep the power cord for the power supply connected at all times. Though it is possible the replacment bios battery was all ready low on voltage or dead. When you're system is turned off the power supply continues to send 5volt DC to the motherboard which maintains the bios 3volt DC.
If the green LED is not lit than there is no power charging the bios battery and every time you boot the system the bios will have lost its settings. If the green LED is red in color, than the problem is within the standby switch built into the motherboard. The standby circuit can not be repaired. Double check all power connectors from the power supply to the motherboard. If everything has a good connection and you're bios settings continue to reset you should consider replacing the motherboard. At this point you have nothing to loose. Install the latest bios update,
(Beta Version 1010.005). 2006/02/14 update.

Good luck!

Computer continiously ask for reboot

DFirst thing to do is to UNdo everything you have just done: Memory Upgrade and CPU Cooler. If normal operation returns, try the upgrades, one at a time, to narrow down the source of the problem. I suspect the memory, as a DIMM chip not correctly set up will cause this problem. Let me know what it does, please?

Computer won't boot up

A long beep code often indicates the video card is kaput. If this has onboard video (i.e., the monitor plugs directly into the motherboard) then purchasing an inexpensive video card that will fit into your computer will take care of the problem. If you already have a video card, just swapping it with another one will fix your problem. Oh, and another thing, please rate this solution with a fixya rating, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

After Power Out No Video (AT ALL) Upon Reboot

Plug a PCI VGA card into one of the PCI slots on your motherboard and connect your monitor signal cable to this add-on PCI VGA card and turn on your system . If your monitor shows the usual startup screen then you continue booting your comp and let the OS load , thereafter you BACKUP your DATA . Use a PCI VGA card from TRIDENT or S3 etc., so that your OS will use built drivers to display at 256 , 16 bit or 24 bit colour depth . These motherboards have problems around the GMCH or the Northbridge chip which has Graphics & Memory Control integrated . The refresh signal to your monitor does not indicate proper working of these GMCH . The memory of your comp needs attention and a check .
