Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
I've just swapped computer cases - straight swap, no new parts - and forgot to replug the 4 pin ATX power cable before plugging it in. I plugged it in for about three seconds - twice :-( - and now my computer is not booting up. I've no idea what to do now, I've disconnected and reconnected all cables again, I've tried a boot disk and I've tried clearing my RTC RAM. I didn't expect any of these to work, and wasn't disappointed.
My computer has been booting up for between 2 and 10 seconds, then turning itself off. The longest single boot followed the clearing of my RTC RAM, but this could just be coincidence.
How do you fix this mistake? Does anyone know of a solution?
Just a guess, but I had a similar problem with an Asus board. I finally tracked it down to the power on/off switch sticking on when I tried to turn the machine on. Under normal circumstances it only engages for a short time and is then released. If the button is held in continuously then the PC tries to start and almost immediately shuts down.
Not sure why though.
