Asus a8n sli deluxe not powering up

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.

as in boot it with a single ram stick and try to determine if its a faulty ram stick

also if you can try another power sup unit

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.

SOURCE: does ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE support fan speed

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.

SOURCE: Odd PC Build Bootup Problem::

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.
CHA_FAN1
CHA_FAN2
CHA_FAN3
CHA_FAN4
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.

I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard


Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf

You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
4) USB front panel ports
5) Audio front panel ports
6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

Motherboard problem..


It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

You Asus board uses the Award bios. The link posted below will tell you what your beeps are saying.
