Try putting in a PCI vid card. Just an older one. Not a PCI- Express unless you have one.

I had the same problem. And the dipwits at ECS programmed the BIOS to default with an PCI vid card. Not on-board.

Then, just go into BIOS and change the boot 'Init Display first' to "on board" or something like that under PnP/PCI Configurations.

Under "Advanced Chipset Features" 'Onboard GPU' make sure it is {Enable if No EXT GPU] or always enable or something like that.

Believe me I had the problem. Was ready to dump it, or do a RMA. Messed around for a year and 1/2 then as a last resort put in an old 2mg PCI card. And it booted right up. I was pissed as hell that they would set the default to an EXT card on a board that claims to be ONBOARD video. Believe me they are going to hear about it.

Also depending on the ram installed. As I am having this problem. Now. It defaults to single channel DDR2. And I can only get 1 533 stick to work. For some reason, the board refuses to post when I have the second of a matched pair in the slot. So if you have that - try taking out the second stick. But try the video deal first.

I agree on external VGA. Had same problem and ECS told me to go talk to my reseller about reprogramming ROM. Put ext VGA in and got to boot sequence only to find a "CMOS not programmed, press F1 to enter setup" notice. Went to BIOS, set time, boot sequence, F10 to save and then exit. On next boot got the same "CMOS not programmed" notice. So frustrated that I can't get through this. Another message to ECS but don't expect much there. Any ideas?

sounds like a RAM problem or a card short or CPU clocking issue.

I'm faced with a black monitor, no boot beep, with an operating fan and green light on. XP OS with an ASUS P5P800S motherboard, Thanks Jose


Remove all components from your mb and bios battery. Place jumper to clear cmos and make short to battery cmos. Leave 1min and after place cpu and one ram in mb. Replace jumper from clear cmos in normal position and verify. If not display, change ram.

MB keeps beeping 1 long beep no boot.


Hello try to download the manual:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=4&m=CUSI-M&os=&hashedid=n/a

Select windows xp and open the manual folder
Click on global for download.
Unzip the file and you need adobe reader to read the content.

Here is a list of beep codes:

This mainboard uses SD ram and it sounds like a ram problem.

If there is room for a ddr ram block you can`t use SD ram and DDR ram simultaneously.

Try to insert the old cpu again and upgrade the bios to support a bigger cpu. Not all cpu is supported.

Good luck

Cpu fan running but the mother board does not respond


Remove/disconnect everything (Ram, Cables, Power Supply, Battery, Processor, Pci cards, Display cards if there's one, etc.) from the motherboard, and after while, reconnect/put them on the motherboard again. Make sure you correctly installed the Ram and it's working. Also don't forget to connect both the power supply cables (20 pins connector and 4 pins connector) to the board. Now reboot your system, can you hear anything (beeps)? If this doesn't help, your nearest culprit to the problem is Display card. Good luck

Aopen ax34 tamper alarm--how to reset????


I don't think that board actually has a tamper alarm in the bios, password security yes but I saw no mention of a tamper alarm. Besides, a tamper alarm won't stop the pc from booting, it just lets you know that the case has been opened....sorry. I think you likely have a mainboard/ram issue.

First thing is to clear the bios. Here's how. Right beside the floppy connector, there is a jumper labeled 'JP14'. Please do the following

  1. Turn off the pc and remove the ac power cord.
  2. Remove the atx power connector from the mainboard (from power supply).
  3. Locate jp14 and move the jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Put jp14 back to pins 1 and 2
  5. Reconnect the atx power connector.
Or you can just unplug it from the waal and remove the bios battery for an hour.
sa code
Try to fire it up again. If it still won't boot, then let me know the number of beeps it makes and the pattern to the beeps ie: one long beep then another long beep or 1 long beep then 2 short ones. These beep are actually telling you what the problem is.

Hope this helps! Post a comment and let me know how you make out.

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Won't power up


It has to do with the KT-600 series "anti burn regulator" and how it has a hard time with the XP2600 thru 3200 CPU's because they get so hot so fast... Try pressing the power on button again immediately after the long beep ends. Your computer should boot right up. Or, you can disable the ABR by removing the jumper from the pins on the motherboard. I haven't tried this because I like knowing the ABR works so good. It only takes a second or two to fry a CPU.

I have a blank screen


so are you asking if there something wrong with your mobo?

Dead Mobo?


Do you have both power connectors from the PSU hooked up?

You need both the large one near the ram, and the smaller square 4-pin one near the printer port

Do you hear any beeps at all? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? If not, plug a 2-pin system speakers onto the motherboard where it says "speaker" and listen for some beeps. You may have a fried CPU or dodgy RAM on your hands. Possibly even a faulty AGP/PCI-E slot, to name a few.
