Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard
P5RD1-V (775 socket) board had an 800 FSB 2.8 gig Intel processor on the board previous --but the machine quit - -and --the processor was O.K. and it was used on a different board--but , on the original board (P5RD1-V)
I put an old 1.6 processor , which did work previous, --yet the machine, then, would not boot , except , to momentarily , start the power supply fan, and heat sink fan --then stop --I changed the location of the fan connections,
or disconnected completely, --tried various power supplys --which worked on other machines, yet not on the P5RD1-V , - -and also , there was tried,
AGP video cards and also PCI cards - - yet , there seemed to be no voltage to run the PCI card fan --(slot #1 PCI) - -the monitor does not lite
when the momentary boot starts--but --when continous push of the 'reset button' - -and the start button--the fans continue to run --yet no monitor lites.
A best guess - -the Bios file is either corrupted, or the main board has a
short or open cirucuit. - -The memory on the board was also changed, to
eliminate that possibility. There is a possibility, that a file came from the net which corrupted the Bios file . At times--upgrade files don't always provide what the suggestion might be . - -Thank you for your concern .
To exclude a possible short, remove the MB from the case and place MB on to a couple phone books thats covered with a non static MB bag. Connect power supply, keyboard, mouse, primary hard disk drive, monitor and internal speaker. Also leaving CPU/heatsink assembly and memory connected.
Short the power-on pins by using a pen. See page
1-34 in you're manual, PWR BTN. If the system boots ok than there was a short with the MB while in the case. If the system does not boot than the MB is bad or the bios needs flashed. Keep the MB out of the case and follow the instructions on page 2-2 section 2.1.1
