Question about ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard
Recently my pc won't turn on when I hit the button. After messing with it over the past couple days here is what I've determined is working... ram is fine and in the right slot cpu is fine vid card is fine psu is working properly switch on the case works and pins it connects to are fine I can even manually jump the computer to get it to startup and everything runs fine. But, when I press the switch on the pc there is some step in between the connection being sent from the switch to the board that stops it from powering up. Any and all help is appreciated! Ps. I've already tried resetting the cmos, didn't work. after windows has shut down the mobos lighs and fans keep going, then when i pull the plug it takes 3 or 4 trys to get windows going again, it keeps crashing on the windows xp logo at start up.
I've run across the same problem with this motherboard. It was the fan going bad on the chip cooler for the motherboard.. (the one labelled Asus on it). The fans are known problem . replace it a non Asus fan. It work fine after that..

Just try switching your power on connection plug to the motherboard the other way round, and check the other connections are the correct way around.

Try resetting the CMOS, to get the procedures on how it's done on your PC's motherboard, please refer to the image below.
Please reply if this has helped you. Thanks.

You can research *********** board and drivers at ASUS.com.
You may find a new BIOS update which controls the fan speeds and temp.
If not, you can find plenty of frreware which will handle *********** board.

Instead of connecting you're fans to a single 4-pin molex on the power supply why not use the motherboards 3-pin molex fan connectors coming off the motherboard. See page 2.2.4 in your manual. Though I agree you should still be able to run 4-pin molex connectors to all fans off of you're PS. Allow the mother board to supply the 12v current to you're extra fans.
You're motherboard will supply the needed power. Less wiring will also allow better air flow through out the system and less strain to the fan controllers.
