Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard
I understand that this could be due to overheating. what can be done? is my motherboard damaged for good? this already happened before with my P5V800-MX motherboard and now it happened again with my P5PE-VM.
here are my specs:
Pentium IV 2.80 GHz 533 MHz FSB 1 MB L2 Cache
512 MB PC3200 CL3 184 - Pin DIMM
64 MB GeForce4 MX
I have 2 IDE HDD's:
a 40 GB Samsung
and a 20 GB Fujitsou
I have an LG 16x DVD Writer
2 aux fans and a floppy drive..
that's about it, is it too much of a load? oh and I have a 500-W power supply.. a mitsui AVR and an EMERSON UPS.. please help me.. what's wrong? what could be wrong? and an aditional info, these are all the specs I used with my P3V800-MX board..
I think its the power supply... i have the same problem right now. but i just cant get it right. me and my friend mark tried to fix my pc. we checked every wirings, clean the memory, check the processor, and everything. now hear this, we switct it on. the motherborad lights up, the cd rom works, the HDD run, fans are spinning, keyboard and mouse lights up... but no video output!
after a bit of trials and using the pcs parts to another pc to check if theyre work or not. yet all remoavble stuffs work in another pc. even the board. after a 2 hours of these.. we fix it all together then suddenly it just work! what was wrong with it? my power supply is 600watts with dual fan. my board is a asus pvp5 asus with 512 ddr and 40 gb hdd, no vdcard, dvdwriter.
im just sharingmy problem, just for referal. hope u can help me too.

Coincidentally, I am having the same problem, although slightly different. I can boot up after many tries, but once in Windows, it will freeze after a while. I had the CPU temperature error before for many months but ignored it and it was fine until now. My mobo is P5P800, which I think is similar to the mobos you have. And I have a Pentium IV 3.00 GHz. I have sent it out to some technicians to be diagnosed and still waiting for their response. After doing some reading on the net, i think it could be due to either the PSU or CPU fan (which I didnt realised before). My CPU fan was quite dusty - I believe your one is too, bLyCheE? might be worth a try to change it. If the PSU or CPU is not the problem, then i think my mobo is.

Try this. Re-seat the video card, reseat your memory modules. Unplugg all USB cables. ethernet cables, power cables, and reset your BIOS by finding the reset jumper on your motherboard. Now plug in your keyboard, mouse and power cord. NO USBs, now try and start computer, it if starts replug USBs one at a time after computer is working. If no power up, are you getting any beeps? Possible causes for computer to try and start for a second and immediately power off.
1. Short Circuit (Motherboard touching chasis)
2. Bad power supply
3. Bad/stalled USB device plugged in.
4. Bad connection on Video Card / Memory Module (Corrosion?)
5. Bad Video Card / Bad Monitor
6. Look at the pins on the VGA connector and make sure there are none bend creating a short.
I hope this works for you!

It could be the power supply, the motherboard, or the processor. And, unfortunately when the power supply goes it can take out the motherboard and processor too.
The easiest of these three components to test and rule out is the power supply. If you have another power supply around that has both the 20 pin ATXPWR and 4 pin ATX12V connectors you should try it.
If you don't have another power supply lying around, disconnect every power supply cable from the motherboard and all components and check out this link:
Try this technique and see if the power supply fan turns. If it does then the power supply is probably good. If the fan does not turn then your most likely problem is the power supply. Hopefully that's the case because it will be the easiest and most inexpensive thing to replace.
Good luck and let us know what you find.

So are you saying that there is no video on the display at all? Just completely black? I have ran into this several times and 95% of time it's a burned up CPU. Replace the CPU, you can probably find one pretty reasonable on ebay and it should work fine. It's possible that it's also the MB as well, but I would bet on the CPU.
