Hi all. Not sure where I went wrong, I have an ASUS p4pe Black Pearl Motherboard with 2.0 GHZ processor. Up until a week ago it was working fine for 2+ years. Now, The motherboard shows green light when power supply is plugged in, the cpu fan spins immediiately when the power to the supply is turned on, but the computer will not attempt to boot whatsover. I have tried running with known working components and have run barebone but it will not attempt to boot up--- no hard drive spin, no warning beeps or anything. I'm not sure where to start. I even took all components out of case and ran like that with same results. I am using ATI AIW 7500 AGP card for the vid card. I'm not sure when the computer last worked as it is not one I use all the time. BEFORE all this happened i tried downgrading the vid card (I was having capture errors but that's a whole nother story) to a ATI 128 pro. The computer worked fine with that card, I updated drivers restarted and left the computer for a day or so (again not a computer i use a lot)When I came back to it is when this non booting problem began. I tried going back to the AIW vid card and even tried another card but to no avail? Where should I start? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!!!

this will depend on HARD
DRIVE whether ide the ide will have 40 pins or sata the sata will have 8 copper
slat type also PSU power supply unit ide or sata power connecters these days
they usually supply both next MOTHERBOARD if has ide and sata plugs the ide
will be a flat ribbon type with 40 pin plug ends the sata will be 8 copper slat
type usually a bit thicker most power supply units will fit but to make absolutely sure you could take some measurents inside you computers frame to make sure it will fit also you might need to get a heavy duty with plenty of wattage if you have added more ram another hard drive or a bigger one or any other devices cd/dvd drives then you will need more wattage to boot up hope this helps
6 PCI slots, supports Socket 478 processors up to 3-GHz, two IDE, on-board
Cons: Only supports one diskette drive
Line: Good for building a modest system. It is still useful today. Reliable
performance. 6 PCI slots make is very expandable.
I would recommend booting your pc to Safe Mode and restoring your system back to a date BEFORE the crash happened. When you power on your pc, press F10 or F8 until you hear a beep. This will bring up a command function for you to select what you would like to boot to . Choose Safe Mode.
you need to check in your bios settings for the amt of physical memory setting. alsoexamin the board for defect. if all that is good then follow the following instructions
3.)switch jp1 to clear ( the jumpewr that clears the bios is called jp1 its located close to the battery and it has 3 pins and 1 jmper) the pin set will be on 1 and 2 , simply set it to 2 and 3)
4.) Hit the power button 5 times to clear all remains of eletricity
5.) REPLACE JUMPER TO 1 AND 2
6.) replace memory
7.) boot up system
8.) on the main boot screel it should say no bios settings enter setup
9.) enter setup and load optimal defaults
10.) save and exit
The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
