Question about ASUS P5P800S Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard has power and fans turn but nothing else will

I have an asus p5p800s and evrything was working fine until i shut the computer down one day and turn it back on. The computer will not boot. The motherboard has power and the fans will turn on. Nothing else will come on. The hard drive will not turn on, there is no beeps at power on. There is no video. I have taken the compuetr apart and I still get nothing. I have tested the power supply and it is fine. If i disconnect the hard drive from the motherboard but leave the power connecter on the motherboard I can here turn on and the same thing with the DVD drive. If the dvd drive is conneted to the motherboard the tray will not open but when i dscoonect but leave the power connector in the tray will open. I had this problem a few weeks ago and after disconnecting everything from the computer and then reinstalling it worked and I do not know what I did to get it to work but it only lasted a few day and ten stopped again. This time I can not get to start working. Please let me know if there is any settings on the motherboard that would cause this. Ps I also cleared the CMOS after this happened and it did nothing.

I have an AsusP5P 800 mother board and the unit won't power on.

I had a very similar issue like this, how many RAM modules do you have installed? if you have 2 DIMM installed try removing the memory on at at time(try interchanging the RAMS), see if turns on. if not might be the motherboard itself thats possibly defective.

It could be that you have a damaged power supply which took out your motherboard. When turning it on, what beeps did it make?

Power shutting down

check your power-save settings they could be turning the computer off. it could also be a bad chipset that is getting shorted or a bad fan that is causing the pc to overheat and turn off. hope this helps.
