Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

2 Answers

No signal to monitor when booting.

I have not gotten my new computer up and running yet. Keeps saying no signal on the monitor. Everything is installed correctly into the motherboard, power source, etc.

Here are my specs: (Keep in mind I have not got it running to BIOs yet)

Asus M2N-SLI
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ at 3.2GHz (these two were in a bundle)
XFX GeForce 8800 GT
Ultra X-Pro 600 watt Power Supply (SLI-Ready)
OCZ Reaper 2x 2048 Memory

Now personally I think the memory is the problem now. I don't know, but it doesn't say it's SLI-Ready. I don't know if it has to be to work on the motherboard, and if that is why there is no signal to the monitor. I hope I don't have to return another part and get something else. But the memory seems the likely villain here. Hopefully someone can help.

(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.

(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.

(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor

When I want to switch ma computer on after changing boxes it keeps making a noise and the monitor says no signal, the lights in front are off, but all the fans are running

You just changed the case? It seems you might've missed a videocard or motherboard power connection; fix that or simplify until it boots, then eventually reconnect the HD.

My monitor samsung 2330 keeps saying check digital signal cable and I've put the cords all in the same way I had them before and now this screen keeps popping up

If you already check your connections and still no answer from what you're doing, do these steps:
  1. check for any beep codes
  2. remove and reinsert your RAM to another memory slot, if it works you have a problem with your RAM, you'll need to buy a new RAM that is compatible with your motherboard
  3. if you here a 1 short beep, that means it already start the booting sequence of your computer but you don't see any boot screen and still the out of range error. You have a defective graphic card.
  4. Is your monitor is a LCD type? if your answer is yes that means your monitor is not compatible with your old graphic card, buy a new graphic card that is compatible with your motherboard and to your LCD monitor. Because old graphic cards or onboard vga cannot hold much more pixels than newer ones that's why you have an out of range error

My HP Pavilion a6642p PC has a monitor but the monitior says no signal input

If it says no signal input, then your computer is not putting out a signal. Possibly a bad video card. Also can be a computer that never really boots up and passes the POST. Unless the POST completes, it won't send a video signal.

The motherboard starts up with fans spinning but monitor gets no signal and cant turn off motherboard

If your fans power up but you see no image, then your computer has failed its startup test.
Now you have to find out what the problem is.
Start by opening the case and disconnecting everything but the keyboard, CPU, memory, and video. Now try to start it. If you still have no signal, it might be your video card if the monitor shows a message telling you there is no signal. Memory could also be a problem.
If you get a message telling you there is no boot device, then turn the computer off (push in the switch for about 7 seconds) and connect the hard drive. Now try to boot. If it works, then suspect the CD drive.
If after doing all this you still get no signal no matter what you do, and if the video is part of the motherboard, you're probably looking at a new motherboard.

My computer has amd athlon 64 processor3500+. Shut down computer correctly. Turned on computer next time, fan runs louder than normal, only main light on computer lights up, and stays on, monitor says not...

The very fact that the Geeksquad would turn down an opportunity to make cash money should give you a clue of how difficult these little things are to work

Laptops are not nearly as easy to work on as desktops, and parts are largely unavailable or cost prohibitive.

My opinion is that it is not a total board failure, but more like a bios/CMOS foul up. Perhaps even the battery that holds the info has shorted or grown weak. The monitor saying no signal received simply means the laptop did not complete the boot up cycle. The fan running faster could be a sign that the CMOS is fouled up and it is now set at a performance level.

On the other hand, it could be a bad processor (where ya gonna get one?) or motherboard. My advice would be to try to get a utility program to get you booted and then assess damages. But honestly, I think you are dollars ahead to try and sell it on Ebay or something for parts.

If you are successful in disassembling it and do locate a bad part, such as a motherboard or power supply, odds are the replacement part would almost be cost prohibitive (these parts do not sit on shelves for retail for the most part).

On top of that, you need to be really good at soldering

My first shot would be to take the restore disks that you made when you purchased it and see if you can restore it from them. If not, use your laptop to find boot up/trouble shooting disks and copy them to boot to set up.

Then you can tell.

Good luck!

Wont boot and no signal to the monitor

Try running it without any ram in, as bad ram could cause that. Also you may have shorted your motherboard. It sounds stupid, but did you remember to put your standoffs on?

Gateway GT5228 booting problem

"Also after I try to turn it on after a couple of unsuccessful tries, it actually boots and the machine works fine". This maybe cause by the hardware problem. And it usually caused by the motherboard. Changing the motherboard unit may solve the problem. But make sure you've already done the basic test on all of your hardware before changing it with a new one.
