If you can assist thankyou.
My pc stopped working. I get no beeps and a blank screen. I checked the memory, changed the cmos battery and cleared it, tried both video cards, swapped power suppy and nothing.
I see the light on for the wake on lan, i hear the hard drive, fan for the cpu turns on,fan on the video card turns on as well. I tried the onboard video plus 3 other video cards.
I tested the monitor on another pc and it works.
It sounds like the pc turns on but no bios comes up and no beeps sound.
If i press the power button on for about 5 seconds the pc shuts off.
If i remove the fan that sits on the of the cpu then i hear a few clicks and then the pc shuts off.
Anybody know what could be wrong?
Seems like the mother board has juice but i don't see what can be wrong.
Thanks in advance
I have the same problem although mine came when I used a Linux HDD cloning tool and next thing the PC would not start at all, I am not sure if it just coincidently died at when I rebooted or if it lost the Bios or something due to the cloning I tried.
The Cloning was on 2 USB drives and the internal HDD was and is still disconnected and the 2 USB drives are removed, still same behavior.

To exclude a possible short, remove the MB from the case and place MB on to a couple phone books thats covered with a non static MB bag. Connect power supply, keyboard, mouse, primary hard disk drive, monitor and internal speaker. Also leaving CPU/heatsink assembly and memory connected.
Short the power-on pins by using a pen. See page
1-34 in you're manual, PWR BTN. If the system boots ok than there was a short with the MB while in the case. If the system does not boot than the MB is bad or the bios needs flashed. Keep the MB out of the case and follow the instructions on page 2-2 section 2.1.1

Suggest you enter the bios and make a setting change. Open the manual to page 2-24. The M1573 RAID function set this to [Disabled]. (This will stop the bios from loading the RAID controller.) See boot menu page 2-31 section 2.6 Set section 2.6.1 Boot device priority as shown. (The drive with windows installation on it should be in the boot order). You can also unplug either the data cable or power cable of the slave drive to assure it does not boot. If you still receive a blue screen with the primary drive suggest you re-install windows or boot to the windows CD and create a new partition within the free space of the primary drive. Install windows complete including updating. When finished you'll be able to copy you're data to the new windows. Use windows disk manger program (diskmgmt.msc) in the run window to delete the old windows partition. Some programs will need to be reinstalled.

From the description of the problem, it seems that either the power switch of your PC or the power supply cable is faulty. Also, please let us know if the motherboard LED is glowing or not. Do reply for more assistance.
Hi shuter. Your Asus P5RD1-VM has an integrated video adapter ATI® Radeon 9600 GPU. You need to enter your bios & change the video start up order. Pg.2-22 in your manual.
Configuration options: [IGD] [PEG/IGD] [PCI/IGD]
Boot Graphics Adapter Priority [PEG/IGD]
Save & exit. Check system at boot up for correct memory count.
Thanks for using FixYa & if you need more help just re-post here. Have a good one!
More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.
Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
