    Everything thus far you mentioned I have done already! Give some meaningful advice please! Very frustrated now with this site also. Paid for I don't want to mention! I've got a Celeron Cpu and a Pentium4 3.2 GHZ cpu that I tried. Also I got a working spare mobo that I tested hardware on! There are too many worthless links on this site! I thought it would be more of an interactive thing! I'm chucking this mobo in the bin. Thanx for nothing!

    Try these following steps:


    1. Remove every thing, RAM/HDD/FDD/CD-DVD from board.

    2. Just add only CPU and Speaker.

    3. And boot.

    4. If you here a Long beep (About 3 seconf long). Means RAM is missing then its ok.

    5. Now power off.

    6. Add RAM and boot.

    7. Now you should hear ok beep. If yes then go next step other wise. Remove the RAM clean its connection point by pencil earaser. Put it and try again, if no luck then try to use another slot. If still problem then change tha RAM.

    8. Now you can add other components and it should be run.



    If still problem, just ask me what you did and what the result.



    Thanks

    do you attach a small-speaker to the board directly in the front panel connection area of the motherboard. If yes and after removing all components like RAM/HDD etc. you don't hear a long beep, then it means you have fault in either your motherboard or in CPU.


    • Remove the CPU.

    • Try to clean CPU socket by vaccume cleaner.

    • Then put the CPU again. and try out.

    • There must be a long beep for missing RAM. If still no beep, then try another CPU to the board and/or another board with the CPU. Then you can find out which one is faulty.

    Be sure that inbuilt speaker is connected currectly.



    Please post your feed-back.

    Thanks

CS 65 EC MOTHERBOARD IS NOT GETTING BOOT UP ADN POWER LED IS NOT GLOWING


Try a new power supply. Just plug in the main 18-pin motherboard power cable from a different computer and see if the LED comes on / computer powers on.

If the motherboard was dead it would still have the LED lit. Has to be a power supply issue.

How to fix a motherboard that does not turn on at all.


Make sure there is power at the outlet, surge suppressor, power strip. Be sure any connected UPS is on. Try again.

Remove any recently installed hardware and go for boot. If the PC boots, check to make sure that the new hardware does not overload the old power supply - if it does, replace with a higher capacity power supply and go for boot.

Open the PC. Look for indication of power - LEDs, fan, etc. Replace the power cord between the outlet and computer if one is available, and go for boot.

If possible, obtain a power supply tester to determine if the power supply has failed. Replace any failed Power Supply and go for boot.

Disconnect power. Disconnect all non-required cables and accessories. Leave only the power and data cables for power supply, boot drive, video card, mouse, memory and keyboard connected - everything else should be removed (with the exception of the small cables that go to the MoBo headers for LEDs, and switches on the case). Everything means both data and power cables. All controller cards should be removed as well unless using on-board or built-in controllers. Reconnect power and try for Boot.

Add devices, cables, etc one at a time to determine which is causing the fault. A PC that boots and shuts down shortly after could be an indication of overheating / over load. Clean dirt & dust from case, ventilation slots, etc. Make sure all fans spin freely - replace any that do not.

Those are some things to start working on.. hopefully, you'll find the problem and not have to go further. Good luck!

Motherboard red light stay on and computer won't turn on. Any ideas on what the promblem might be?


First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.

First Hello. Before few days,when I turn on my PC(but I was unpluged my machine from electricity) and on monitor displays CMOS wrong set date/time,cpu frequensy.I hit BIOS set up sittings and Windows xp...


Replacing the bios battery was the correct thing to do. Answer me this. The Asus motherboard should have a green LED light lit (Standby power LED), when the system is turned off. Also keep the power cord for the power supply connected at all times. Though it is possible the replacment bios battery was all ready low on voltage or dead. When you're system is turned off the power supply continues to send 5volt DC to the motherboard which maintains the bios 3volt DC.
If the green LED is not lit than there is no power charging the bios battery and every time you boot the system the bios will have lost its settings. If the green LED is red in color, than the problem is within the standby switch built into the motherboard. The standby circuit can not be repaired. Double check all power connectors from the power supply to the motherboard. If everything has a good connection and you're bios settings continue to reset you should consider replacing the motherboard. At this point you have nothing to loose. Install the latest bios update,
(Beta Version 1010.005). 2006/02/14 update.
