    Yeah... I had replaced the jumpers to clear and then replaced it back. also put a brand new CMOS Battery. As I said, comp is not responding to keyboard inputs.
    Sometimes, The message comes to press F1 to goto setup. And Sometimes, screen freezes on the initial ASUS Splash screen. And most of the times, there is no display at all, and no start beep also. Computer constantly polls CD Drive(I guess so, because of repeatative click sounds in the drive).
    When I remove RAM and start, sometimes error beep occurs, but sometimes not.
    Keyboard, I have tried PS/2 and even USB.

    This is why I have a love/hate relationship with Asus boards. Am I correct in assuming this is not a new installation? And you haven't just upgraded to a new O/S? Then try booting again until the F1 appears and press that to go to set up. Go to boot configurations and set your optical drive as the first choice. Make certain the board recognizes all hard drives and optical drives. Set the hard drive for 2nd choice and save the settings. Put your Windows CD in the optical and boot up. (You'd be safer using a PS/2 keyboard right now.) It should say "Press any key to boot from CD". If you're lucky and the CD starts to load Windows, wait until it asks if you want to repair or install. Choose repair. It may reload the entire O/S over your old one, saving it in a file marked "old windows". But your data files will be saved. This all depends on several factors that I don't know about. If it loads Windows again, and reboots, be sure not to click on a key the second time around when it says click on any key to boot from CD. You will have to go back into setup and restore all your old settings, as they were cleared with the RTC wipe. And also, be sure to change the boot priority back to Hard drive first. Let us know what's happening. Sirwriter

    When you say you replaced the CMOS, did you open the side and pull the jumper off the first two pins on the RTC and place them on the last two to clear it? And then replaced them on the first 2 pins again? You then have to enter set up (usually by pressing Delete button when it starts up) and enter your booting sequence again, ie, hard drive first, then CD or DVD Rom, and make sure on the first page the hard drive is recognized.

Asus k50ij wont boot

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

AT POST motherboard hang at INITIALIZING USB.....

Several things you can try:
  • Remove the CMOS battery leave for 10 minutes and re-insert and try to reboot
  • If this fails to solve the issue, check the BIOS (F2 on boot) and disable USB legacy support
  • Then if that fails, try swapping out the RAM modules until you manage to get a successful boot.
  • If you suceed in this, download memtest and check the integrity of the ram modules, it may be you have an intermittently faulty ram module.
  • If this fails, it is likely that the USB controllers on the motherboard are damaged

Installed RAM and now monitor has no display. I

The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached

Asus P5RD1-VM. Auto-power up, not boot sound and cannot power off

First of all you want to reset your BIOS. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the manual which is provided in the following link, the manual calls it "Clear RTC RAM" which is on page 35. While you are inside the computer, make sure all cables/connections are firmly seated.


If this fails to clear up your boot issue, you need to go a little further into the computer. Make sure your computer is off and unplugged from the wall before continuing.

Next you need to remove ANY hardware that is not needed to boot. This means any add-on cards (expansion cards), hard drive, RAM, video card, CD/DVD drive, USB devices, firewire devices, speakers/microphones, keyboard and mouse.

After they are all disconnected, try booting. If it acts the exact same as it did before, you have to go further into the computer again. If it does something different, one of the components you removed was causing your boot problem. Replace them one by one, trying to boot between each component you hooked back up, I would first start with the RAM.

But, if the computer still does nothing upon boot, you need to bench test it. This means you remove the motherboard from the case and set it on a hard non-conductive surface (kitchen table or a work bench). Then you hook up the Power Supply correctly and attempt another boot. If now you hear beeps from the motherboard, your motherboard had somehow shorted to your computer case.

If you still get no beeps, your problem is either the motherboard or your CPU (processor). To narrow it down between those two, put your processor in another computer to see if it works.

If you go through all of those steps and get nothing, I would be looking mostly at the motherboard.

Hope this helps.

The CMOS, which stands for complementary metal-oxide semiconductor, is the hardware component of a computer that supports the BIOS, or basic input output system. The two terms are often used interchangeably, and the two technologies work together to perform the same basic function. They maintain the low-level settings on a computer, letting the computer know, even before the computer's operating system starts, what kinds of hardware the computer has available, such as hard drives and video display adapters. A special battery located on the computer's motherboard powers the CMOS. To reset the CMOS on a Dell computer, briefly remove and then replace the battery
  1. Turn off the computer. Disconnect all cables and detach all devices, including USB devices, from the computer. Press and hold the computer's power button for 10 seconds after it has been unplugged. This grounds the system board.
  2. Step 2 Remove the computer cover. All Dell systems have a cover panel on the chassis that you can remove so that you can access the system's motherboard and internal components. For some Dell computer lines, such as OptiPlex, the computer cover is held in place by a release latch located on the back of the computer. Pull the latch to release the cover and then slide the over up and away. Other lines, such as Dimension, have large, slotted thumbscrews. Turn the screws counter-clockwise until they disengage from the chassis, the slide the cover off the computer. Dell computers often ship with the computer's user guide in CD form or with the guide pre-loaded on the system's hard drive. You can locate the instructions for removing the cover from your particular system in the user guide.
  3. Step 3 Locate the CMOS battery on the system's motherboard. CMOS batteries range in size from size and thickness from about the size of a nickel to about the size of a quarter. The CMOS battery will generally be labeled CMOS on the motherboard and will be the only battery openly exposed on the motherboard.
  4. Step 4 Remove the CMOS battery by prying it gently up out of its socket. The sockets are specifically designed to allow the battery to be replaced.
  5. Step 5 Wait 30 seconds, and then replace the battery in its socket. This will reset the CMOS. Replace the computer cover to complete the process.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

It sounds like you have a dead battery on your motherboard.  Just replace it and your settings will remain.

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem

More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
