Question about EliteGroup P4VXASD2 Motherboard

Computer will not boot

When I turn the power on, both the CPU fan and power supply fan spins but the system does not "beep" and perform BIOS POST check.
If I then connect a power connector to my video card (Geforce 7100 GT), the CPU fan will not even start.
Is the motherboard fried?

    I cleared the cmos through mobo pins, but fans still won't spin.

    I disconnect power to video card and fans spin, but no BIOS POST check.

I just had the same problem with the same setup... it was due to bad memory.
I also thought it was a bad video card and swaped one out of a working donor. The issue persisted.
Borrow some ram from a friend or a working system and swap, as a test... this worked for me. running great now.

Good luck

Why is power up for intel DQ965CO start up unreliable?


"No bios screen" If you mean that the screen is totally dead with no response at all, but when you power-up you DO hear the normal system beep, then first check your video cable to make sure connections are tight. Take the monitor and plug it into a different computer to make sure that the monitor has failed or not. If the monitor tests good, your case cooling fans and the CPU heatsink fan do spin up, if you do not get the usual system beep when booting, then you have a low-level failure of a component. This could be caused by only one of three things: your CPU (processor) has failed, the motherboard has failed, or possibly there is a problem with the power supply. I hang out at www.suggest-a-fix.com which is a free computer help forum. Post in the Hardware section and I will be along. This forum is not set up for complicated problems that require back-and-forth, in-depth communication.

My msi ms - 7352 ver :1.0 won't display but wen i plug the power cable on the power supply the cpu fan and power supply fan spin but wen i turn the pc on it doesn't display


Auto power on the mother board means there was not found RAM or VGA adapter. If you herd Beep tones
follow this link to identify the error
https://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/bios-beep-codes

if not pls check the power supply 4pin connector correctly plugged .

Also need to check the cpu and post error codes by post diagnostic card to identify the eror.

Abit av8 bios post codes 8.3 - 8.6 - 9.c What is failing on boot ? I get one long beep followed by 4 short beeps. I have swapped video cards and reflashed the bios with no help. If I reboot 2 or 3...


I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.


Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

After power on Fans are running but no Videosignal, no bios startup.


Could be 3 things Memory or CPU or Powersupply. are you getting any beeps if so how many, how long. try taking all the memory out and powering up see if it beeps if so try to put one stick of memory in at a time and see if it will boot. if you get no beeps with memory out check powersupply some PS's have a red switch on back for current input. switch back and fourth about 20 times uning a pen and set it to the right current for you location. put ram back in see if it will boot if not its trial and error of the PS and the CPU replacement and it still could be the RAM giving false readings. yea i know sounds like a ball of fun.

L7VMM2 wont boot (no post) plz help


Sounds like the CMOS battery on the motherboard needs replacing...i would try clearing CMOS first, replace battery and test voltage at the CPU (through the BIOS) If that dosen't help you likely have faulty capacitors.
If you get it to boot, im sure drivers and BIOS will need updates if it's been stored 2 yrs.

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

Problem booting up


This is a well-documented issue on GX280 Optiplex machines for which there is no permanent fix - at least there is not one I came up with or found elsewhere. The symptom is that after power on, the CPU fan spins faster and faster until it tops out at rather impressive RPMs. Swapping power supplies, memory sticks, CPU, the heatsink and fan assembly, or adding more heatsink grease does not make any difference. There are no beeps, no video, nothing. The problem is related to a CPU temperature sensor, and some machines may display a message on the screen stating so.
Through various trial and errors I was able to make almost any motherboard with this symptom boot up. A rather significant downward pressure applied on the top of the fan vent will make a system boot up and run for days, but the pressure has to remain in place or the system will freeze instantly. This pressure has to be applied not on the top of the entire fan assembly but just on the vent side, in a way that the heatsink will not make good contact with the CPU on the side opposite of vent. What I do is I place a 1/2" tall object at the top of the fan casing right at the tip of the vent and force the case closed. The PC will boot and work as long as the case is closed and the pressure is there.
I have no idea what the pressure on top of the heat sink vent really does. I suspected that maybe the CPU contact pins become elastic and deform over time. I tried carefully and tediously bending all of those pins up a bit to create a better contact point, but that did not work. I also removed and measured capacitors near the voltage regulators for capacitance, and all typically measure near their advertised values. I haven't seen a motherboard with popped caps and this racing fan issue concurrently, but this doesn't mean the symptoms are mutually exclusive; it's probably just a coincidence.
I'll keep looking and trying to find a fix for this issue. We have a small pile of motherboards with this identical issue at my workplace, and when/if I find a solution I'll be sure to write about it.
Good luck!

NFORCE3-A Won't post with 2 sticks of 512MB DDR RAM, only if 1 stick used :-(


U cannot use 2 identical DIMMs of RAM Memory, find two same and faster, couse 233 or 300 is too slow for nForce3 motherboard.
