Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

Getting over voltage error in bios , tried new cpu , reset bios . Checked power supply and all checks out fine with volt meter . Removed cd-rom , hdd , ram etc... that are not needed to boot with same results . Took out motherboard and check therm paste , cleaned motherboard of any dust etc... , checked for burnt out diodes etc... everything looks fine . Is this a bad motherboard or something else I am missing ? .

    I don't think it is incorrectly reporting the over voltage the cpu gets hot very fast which would lead me to belive that the 13 volts it's reporting for the 5volts its supposed is true .
    As it gets hot so fast I don't even think I would have time to flash the bios without causing damage to the cpu however I will try and reset the bios back to default and see what that does .

    Thanks for the comment I appreciate your time in posting your response .

    ok just tried the bios flash and still same results . I will be trying a new motherboard here in the next couple of days and I will post the results then in case anyone else with the same problem is wondering how I fixed this .

    Thanks to all that have responded to this question .

Hi, this is'nt a solution but more of a suggestion, if your sure there isn't a hardware fault (voltage regulator?) then perhaps a bios flash may be needed. I've come across Asus mobo which have incorrectly reported temperatures and this has been fixed by flashing.

Best of luck

    It's reporting 13volts going to a 5v component!!.

    Ditch the board my friend - too many other items to burn out if that continues.



    Best of luck.

Back up a little bit and tell us if the screen shows anything at all. If it does not coupled with the lights that are flashing, you have a loose cpu or the cpu is bad.

Hello, I recently bought a CX500 PSU, and i have an issue with it. When I unplug the wall power cord and then plug it back, the PC turns on by itself and all my BIOS settings are reset with a MemOK!...


Did you check the battery on the motherboard? The battery should read 3.3 volts with a volt meter. If you don't have a meter you can try swapping the battery from another motherboard. Or have the battery checked at a Radio Shack store. Also if you still have the Seasonic try hooking it back uo temporally outside the case to check if it is a power supply issue. If the old power supply failed while being connected to this motherboard it could have damaged it.
Thanks for using FixYa

Dell latitude laptops cpi cpx won boot up just blinks


If you don't get any fans from the CPU spinning, then there is a problem with actually tripping the power supply in the laptop.

The normal boot sequence is as follows:
1. Power is applied, fans spin
2. CPU receives power and then BIOS is checked
3. RAM then is detected and rest of the system components are quickly checked by BIOS
4. Hard drive is checked for boot sector.

Ask somebody to check the laptop to see if the voltage and amperage from the charger is within tolerance. If it is higher than 130% higher than listed in the voltage or more than 15% higher in the amperage, then the laptop is damaged.

If it is within tolerance, then try removing the actual battery first. If this doesn't help, have somebody check the hard drive. If this boots up in another laptop of the same model, then there is a problem with the transformer in the laptop.

Blank screen on start up


Try removing all cards with the exception of the video. Remove all memory leaving (1) to boot from.
Disconnect power and reset the processor.
If you have a boot disk or copy of XP on disk, try to boot from the CD or DVD.
If the unit boots at all the problem may be the HD.
If not try downloading the BIOS update for your chipset.
Remove all extra drive, like secondary CD or DVD drives, Floppy or Zip drives.
You may have burnt the processor but I don’t think so.
Power supply is OK or you would not power up. Their are 3 or 4 supply voltages from supply, +- 12 volts, +- 5 volts and +-3.3 volts.
You may have a secondary 12 volt 4-pin plug but that is for on board video.
Try a boot disk and flash your BIOS, if you can.
Hope this helps.

Asus p5s800-vm MB has complete power lets monitor know


Disconnect the hard drives, cd/dvd drives and any expansion boards you have plugged into the mainboard. We want to remove as much as possible to see if we can eliminate the problem.Using the onboard video, start it up again, and see if it comes up. If it does, then its one of the items you disconnected. Power down and reattach one of the disconnected items and power up again. Did it come up? Keep in mind that we want to see the bios start up screen. Once you have attached all the items you will have found the bad component. Replace it. But lets say you didn't get a good system when you disconnected everything. Well, that narrows down the suspected bad items to: the mainboard, the power supply, the memory, or the cpu. The power supply has many voltages coming out of it, keep in mind that the drives, cd/dvd rom drives and fans use 12 volts for spin up. There are 3 other voltages used by the mainboard. I would replace the power supply next with a known good one. Then it gets a little costlier, the memory, then the cpu and then the mainboard. Stick with it. You'll find out which it is. Good Luck.

Error Message on 1st page boot up


Hi Chris,
Reset the bios jumper on the board. Use your manual, go to the bottom of page 9. Please unplug the power cord from the PC.
Clear the cmos/ bios & remove the bios battery as well. (You may use a small flat tip screw driver to help lift the battery out). If you have a voltage meter check the battery for 3volts DC. (If you have a voltage meter suggest you check the battery for 3volts DC while its out).
Re-place the bios battery & reset the bios jumper back to Normal. Re-connect the power cord to the PC. Boot the system & enter the bios menu. Adjust all your setting as needed.
(DO Not over-clock anything)!
If you still receive an error message your only other option would be to flash the bios. Even if you have the latest bios software already installed. The current bios software may be corrupt.

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

Your CPU may have a problem


Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim
