Re: Motherboard will not boot
The first question; is there power to the board? If so what lights are on and are they steady? Are the fans running, Have you tried hooking it up to the onboard video port. Ensure to unplug and remove anything that is not essential to boot. If these ideas don't help keep me updated with details. Thanxs

First boot the computer without connecting Graphic Card, then go to BIOS and find for VGA option change the option to compatible mood, save the setting and come out of it. now off the computer re connect your graphic card and start the computer.
Could be a bad monitor and if not, then the graphics card if it has one, if not the motherboard connection. Try it with another monitor to rule out the monitor, then if you ave a graphics card, remove it and reseat it.
If your PC doesn't boot up then it means that your system is not posting. This could mean that eaither your CPU or your motherboard is faulty. If you get a series of beeping sounds then you will need to replace the RAM. If your PC boots up but you get no signal to the monitor and if you were using a graphics card it now means that it may have become faulty and you will need to use onboard graphics. If you were using onboard graphics then your motherboard VGA has malfunctioned.
All in all I suggest you take it down to a PC technition to see which components are faulty.
If you have no signal to your monitor, ther are generally three parts that can cause this: the monitor, the DVI/VGA cable (from PC to monitor) or the graphics card. If I were you I'd try to replace those first, then the motherboard. I'm sure there still are socket 939 motherboards out there, so you will not have to replace memory or processor. Just let someone at a local computer store take it apart, install the hardware on a new motherboard, put the harddisk in the system and reinstall Windows.
(the latter because drivers for the old motherboard may conflict with the new ones. If you don't have any problems with that, don't)
Go to page 2-30 section 2.4.5 in your manual. If you are using the onboard graphics for your display set this to [PCI]. If you are using the PCI-E video card, set the bios to [PCI-E]. Save & exit the bios. You should have display after the system re-boots. If you still have no display & you are 100% sure your monitor functions than the video controller on the board is bad. This can not be repaired.
Do you see anything on the monitor at all when you boot up? If not, then the graphics card or onboard video is bad. If you have onboard video, then you just need to purchase a graphics card that will go into an available graphics slot inside your PC. If you have a graphics card already in there, then it will need to be replaced. If you can see the boot up screen but stops displaying video when you go into windows, then the resolution is set outside of your monitors capabilities; you will need to boot into safe mode, then reset the resolution to 800 x 600 and reboot; then you can set it to perform within your monitor's capability.
If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card. There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card. First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card. Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software. If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.
Hiw can u say's its display problem,Have u checked the signals on k/b ? If not check the Num lock status in keyboard. Press the Num lock key ,if the light glows and stands for sometime display is ok,but ur vga adapter is the problem.
