H/W Monitor reports Abnomality/Voltage Problem

Dear Lovely Internet Helper People,

I am running a ASUS p5n32-e plus with q6600 quad core (NOT OVERCLOCKED) 4Gig of 600mhz RAM and nVidia 8800Gtx BFG. These all seem to be running fine (apart from inevitable nVidia driver instability).

I came back from holiday yesterday and turned on my computer to be greeted with a cmos error. I rebooted and then the problem deepened as I was was welcomed to my pc with a boot error and 4 bleeps telling me I had an hardware monitor abnormality. I checked the Voltage Monitor and was told that my Vcore 3.3v 5v and 12v are all too high and in the red. This is accompanied by a temperature of 120c.

I have read a bit on the interweb and it seems I may have a PSU problem. But I think it is something to do with the actual mobo software due to the fact I got the cmos error, I upgraded my nForce driver a few days before and Its pretty new. I also have no crass hes or slow down to report.

If anyone could shed some light on my problem I would be in eternal gratitude.

Thanks very much in advance.

Henry (If there is any information you need just ask)

New Viewsonic LED monitor displays No Signal on two refurbished Dell 2950 servers (both front and back VGA adapters embedded on motherboards) but monitor works plug & play on three different laptops....

Well you ruled out the monitor
Most server have a detail error report system in most cases shows combo of led lights that tells you what its doing and where it is hanging
I sugest to find a manual on it and see if it goes to the post without a hitch

No video when pc is turned on. Monitor says no signal. I disconnected hard drive and I and finally got the motherboard specs on the monitor. Hooked hd back and finally booted but started to reboot every 3...


Reboot every 3 seconds?

Sounds like a problem with Electrolytic Capacitors, on the motherboard. (Or in the Power Supply)

(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be more specific)

Capacitors are used as Filters, and Voltage Regulators; on the motherboard. (Electrolytic or Solid Polymer)

The one's used as Voltage Regulators are in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

Part of what the motherboard voltage regulator circuit does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor (CPU)

The Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage; and it MUST be kept within the tight voltage tolerance range, for the Processor.
Too little voltage, or too much voltage, and the Processor turns off. (BIOS turns it off)

(Starts at 0:04)

[FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures!]

Otherwise the problem is the Power Supply.
Yep. Same Ol' Electrolytic Capacitors, are USUALLY the problem.

My usb ports stopped working shortly after i tried to download photos from my digitatl camera using a usb cable connection. I ran the trouble shooter and checked the root hubs and usb ports on device...

You can take it apart and test the voltages on the USB ports. If your motherboard has the little "helper" connectors that go between the cable connector and the board connector (the little plastic thing with pins that makes it easier to read and hook up the connections) something may have become jogged loose...other than that, something on the motherboard may have shorted happens. Surprisingly USB errors on the motherboard are the most common failures I think (in my experience) I don't what it is about the electronics associated with them, but I have seen a few go bad.

When powering on get no input to monitor board nu a7n8x-e

Make sure you have connected into the correct video port. DVI should be used for LCD monitors and VGA should be used for CRT monitors. Since both ports look the same people often get confused. Try it and let me know.

Hardware monitor found an error

First I would make sure all the power plugs are properly plugged into the motherboard and all other devices.

If that does not solve it then I would get the Power supply tested at a local PC shop. Or just get a new decent power supply. Looks like the Power supply without a doubt is defective.
