It starts fine(POST, beep, memory and hardware recogn), checks load OS, starts loading win, and then the screen flashes, and restarts, now no video signal. I shut it down by powersource switch, turn it on, and all repeats. Then I enter BIOS setup, navigate thru the menus, and after a few seconds, the screen flash, turned off, and beep (self restart). Any help???

Re: problem with ASUS P5GD1 mobo
Try taken the bios battery out for about 30 secs, replace it and then reboot, after post press F8 untill you have a screen pop up with a safe mode option use the arrows keys to navigate to safe mode and press enter. In safe mode goto my conputer c:drive(boot drive) windows. In the windows folder look for a file called prefetch, delete all it contents. Exit out of everything and restart the pc. If same thing happens post back.

The first thing that I would do is check the MoBo's website and find a RAM compatibilty chart. Make sure that you Mobo doesnt have any know issues with your particular RAM. You may also check the RAM's website and look for compatible RAM for your MOBO. Rule this out first. The Sata F6 thing depends on the MOBO I think that most of the time you do have to f6 the drivers however on my ASUS this was not necsessay. My cut at this would be to take everything out of your system except for the few components that it requires to boot up and load the OS. RAM, Video Card, CD ROM, maybe the Floppy. Reformat your HD so that you can start over clean. Make sure that you have each cable plugged into the mobo correctly as well as the component. Reformat, then reload the OS. Start to load the system drivers one at the time rebooting after each is loaded. Pay attention to what you did last if the problem shows up again. This will probably point you to the issue. If every thing installs correctly without any problems then start putting the other hardware in one piece at the time loading the drivers andsoftware for each component then rebooting and ruung some stress test before moving to the next component.
check operating temperatures, check core temp of the processor and memory modules, you can do that by looking at its bios, and locate about system health, if the processor is to hot it would shut off, also check your drivers, if it is booting up to desktop the after sometime shuts off, try locating drivers that are not compatible. better yet re-install the os itself then this time try to load exact drivers for your motherboard
Is the cpu fan working, remove all the memory,but one stick, then try each stick you have. Then, When you get your post, enter safe mode, this does not use full video, so if you can, and it works in safe mode, it is probably your video, if not it is either your power supply or another piece of hardware.
Unless you installed something on windows just before this problem.
Post back if you need more help, any code errors would be great to post.
Try the following
Disconnect all components including all hardrdrives and memory.Only CPU and on board graphic if available. if not insert only graphiccard. start up and see error message on screen. Then restart and press delete to access bios setup. swictch off connect only Hdrive and start up. see if you can access bios. start connecting components one by one and go through the whole procedure. remember no power before you connect a component.
According to the manufacturer it will support P4/celeron 3.6Gz+ procesors. And memory should be Dual channel memory architecture
4 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support max. 4GB DDR 400/333 non-ECC memory. Hope this gets you up and running.
Hi Durmo, your troubles may be the SLI card. If you are using a single 8500GT make sure your SLI card is plugged into the motherboard as a single graphics card. See page 3-9 in your manual. If your 8500GT has dual out puts check both for display. Only one will show you display.
If you have this set correctly & you have tested your monitor on another system (& it is good) yet no display from the system than contact Asus. This board was make in 2007 & is warranted up to 2010. You can do this online or call Asus at 1-812-282-2787 M-F EST. Other countrys click the dropdown menu at Asus home page. http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=473&model=1474&modelmenu=1
You need to listen to your C400 as it boots for further hints as to wether your problem is hardware or software.
At power on a number of events occur,then if the POST (power on self test) completes you get a single beep. If you are getting more than one beep it is important to note how many.
This will aid in figuring out what hardware is involved.
After POST your system starts operating system input.
If you get to the point that it starts to load your OS then if you get a succesful load I would go back and figure out when did the problem start, (Have you loaded new software) if so you might have a restore point you can go back to.
( To access the System Retsore Wizard, click Start, and then click Help and Support. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Using System Restore to undo changes, and then click Run the System Restore Wizard.)
If you fail before the operating system loading screen then consider you might have loose memory chips (you did say it was a laptop and could have be jostled) Loose memory might affect the first 64 MB of Ram used for the load instructions.
If you get the blue screen after you OS loads you might want to reload your OS, but I would do Scan disk / Defrag First in that order. Scan disk will identify bad hard drive sectors and attempt repair. Defrag will consolidate your software. These two should be run monthly especially if you delete any files regularly.
