Question about ASUS A7N8X Motherboard

Do connections to the motherboard have anything to do with connectirng to the internet?

I recently opened my PC to blow it out with canned air. Ever since then, I have not been able to connect to the internet. My wireless network is showing connected but it will not let me acess the web. Is it possible that I disconnected a connection to the motherboard?

if you can get the model and brand name of your audio you can go and search is you sound built in with the motherboard? just get the motherboard model and brand search the internet for the website that supports your motherboard. your can download at their site driver updates.

Within 20 seconds of turning my computer on the computer shuts off. It recognizes the hard drive, memory and other accessories. Is my motherboard defective ?

This could be any one of a number of things, really. Disconnect everything connected to the PC that is not needed and boot. If you're able to boot OK, that tells you that there is a problem with one or more of your devices. This could be anything from a defective peripheral device - to having good peripherals, but simply too many connected to the PC. If you can get every device working at one point or another - but fail as more and more are added - if indicates a power supply unit (PSU) that is over burdened - and cannot supply the load. This is remedied by replacing the PSU with one that has a higher wattage rating than the one it is to replace AND has enough wattage to supply the connected load - plus 20%. Why plus 20%? That's because we don't want to run the PSU at maximum capacity all the time. 80% of capacity is a good starting point - and allows for a small amount of expansion. The more extra capacity you allow - the longer it will be able to work for you before becoming "too small".

The internet is loaded with guides as to how to go about sizing a PSU. Look through them and manufacturer's sites for help with that.. look for recent articles as there are many that are 2, 3, or more years old. Prices back then were high compared to now - so if you find info you like on an old page - don't be put off by the prices quoted.

Heat is another big problem. Especially if the PC is on the floor instead of your desk. There's tons of dust and dirt on the floor and your PC has several fans sucking it all up. Vents get clogged, fan blades get coated - basically - the entire innards of the PC is wearing a thick, furry jacket - keeping it warm. This is NOT a good thing. Disconnect everything, and open the PC up. With a crevice tool on a vac - vacuum all the dust and dirt you can. Pay particular attention to the CPU fan and cooler assembly. Remove the fan from the cooler to vacuum the jacket off of it. Clean dirt and dust that collects on all the fan blades - this reduces efficiency and throws the fan out of balance and will shorten the life of the fan considerably. Vacuum the power supply too - you'll be surprised how much dirt will be trapped inside it. Resist the temptation to blow out the case with a can of compressed air. Doing so will only drive dust & dirt deeper into the machine. Once cleaned up, consider moving the PC to your desktop (if it isn't already), reconnect and try again.

Pleas rate this reply - thanks & good luck!

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Whenever i start my pc fan's start's even monitor start's imediately but 'no signle' massage appears on screen & monitor screen got off

Do you get any "Beep" sound coming from the internal speaker, if so is it just one straight beep or numerous beeps.

If it's one straight beep then this indicates the PC has passed it's POST (Power On Self Test), if it's a series of beeps, some long, some short, it means there is some problem inside the computer, like loose graphics card, RAM, CPU, cable, etc. The beep sequence should be in your motherboard manual under beep codes. That will give you a hint as to what to look for next.

If it is one straight beep and PC passes POST then check your monitor connections, and monitor, it could be that the power saving/signal detection pin is either not connected properly, or damaged.

If you don't have the internal speaker connected (normally in the bottom or front of the case), you need to connect this to find out what is going on.

If you need to connect it you should look at your motherboard manual for where to connect it, normally if you look at the motherboard you will see a load of thin cables coming from the front of the case going onto the motherboard at a point, the 4 pins on the bank of pins at the end are normally the PC speaker (you also get a blank pin between them and the Power Switch pin), although check your manual first, or see if you can see the SPK connection on the motherboard (normally Gigabyte boards are very well marked for this, and colour coded.)

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?

This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?

Computer will never turn on

Odds are good your computer is quite dirty on the inside. If you have never opened the computer I suggest you simply buy a new one, to save time and frustration.

But since you are here, this is what to look for:
Dirty inside - Open the computer and blow all the dust out. Use DRY air.
Power supply - if you have power but no lights on your motherboard anywhere, check your computer's power supply. This may mean removing it and testing in a different computer or using a multi-meter and something to turn it on.
Power switch - Perhaps your switch is simply worn out. Open the computer and follow the wires from the button to the motherboard. Remove the connection and short those two pins for a moment. If your switch is bad, your computer should now be booting up.
Hard drive failure - If you mean will not boot when you say "will never turn on" your hard drive may have failed. If this is the case you can simply replace the hard drive. BUT, you will have to re-install all of your programs AND your operating system. Better to simply buy a new computer if that is the case, unless you have all of your original disks and a fast internet connection.
