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?

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!

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.)

Emachine won't boot. when first turned on, get 2 beeps, floating error "Self check, check your PC and signal cable, monitor is working" on black screen, fan runs fast and loud. machine not connected to...

I am an emachine specialist. These computer suffer with problem motherboards which often blow the power supply unit. Replacing the power supply on it's own does not solve the problem as the motherboard processor socket is the cause of the problem, the fault in turn blows the power supply. The same applies to all Advent and Medion computers sold via the high street stores.

Trouble shooting of motherboard

Hi thayal, systems shut down because of over heating. This is normal so nothing burns up. Try opening the case & clean the CPU fan. Remove any & all dust from the fan blades. Use a clean non used paint brush to help loosen any dust build up. Than blow the entire system out with canned air. Blow out the power supply as well. When finished put the case back together & see if the system shuts down.
