Question about ASUS A8V-E Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

I am slowly rebuilding my computer. When I nearly got it finished, and turned it on, it came up with "Windows Was Not Found". Knowing what to do, I turned everything off, unplugged it properly, and installed my new hard drive (with XP on it). I put everything back together, turned it on, but nothing happened. I turned it off, then on again, this time with the case open to see if any lights came on. The only thing that seems to be working, now, is a small LED on the edge away from the RAM and CPU. Hasnt worked since. I have tried a different Power Supply, but it still hasnt worked! Also, I have tried a different graphics card from a friend, new RAM, different HDD, and I have unplugged all the un-used power cords coming from the PSU (just incase they draw unnecessary power? Just a precaution). Any help?

Check for motherboard. use only 3 parts:

motherboard
PSU
CPU + COOLER

Connect your motherboard to PSU and see, if any LED light comes from motherboard. If LED is on, then try to turn motherboard on and see if cooler works.
Are case wires (power +, power -, hdd +, hdd -, reset+, reset -, power led+, power led - and speaker wire ) connected correctly?
Those wires look like this:

If the power wire (sometimes called POWER SW) is not connected correctly, when you press the power button of case, PC just won't turn on.

If PC turns on and CPU fan spins, then try to add RAM, Graphics card and try again.
Next step is to hear BEEP sound. One short beep sound is normal, anything else is not normal and indicates the problem of the specific hardware according to the sound code. Sound code is BIOS dependent. In case ASUS A8V-E Deluxe, it is Award BIOS. Check below for Award BIOS beep codes

1 long, 2 shortIndicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information

1 long, 3 shortVideo card not detected __ (reseat video card) or bad video card

Beeps repeating endlessly __ RAM problem.

Repeated high frequency beeps while PC is running __Overheating processor (CPU)

Repeated beeps alternating high & low frequency ___Issue with the processor (CPU), possibly damaged

Sorry, but looks like the main board is dead (or the main CPU)
The minimum is to have the CPU and RAM installed, so the bios can be accessed.

I have the same board (M2N-SLI) with a BFG 9800 GTX with no video either. I have the card in the black slot and I have 2 mem sticks in the yellow. Shouldn't make a difference if I'm using a monitor not an LCD right? Everything spins up for me too, hard drive, vid card has power, CPU fan is on, post (green) light is on.

Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable

Hi, the thing to do here is to narrow down what could be causing the problem, initial suspects would be the RAM chips. If you have known working ones you can try in it, try these, if not, try without one, then swap them over, or even try without both.

Also, remove any components that aren't strictly necessary, i.e. hard drives & cables, cd-rom/dvd drives, extra PCI cards,network cards etc

Another suspect may be just a loose connection, try taking everything out, re-seating it. Again, pay particular attention to the RAM chips.

It could possibly even be a faulty processor, have you another you could try? Try taking it out and re-seating it.

Hello,

Not knowing what operationg system you have on your computer, XP, Vista or Windows 7, I would recommend your go the link I have provided below by copying and pasteing into your web browser to go the Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dowload and install the software. After the installation, it will go out for updates and do a fast scan of your computer for virus problms. Abort the fast scan and then select a full scan. Let it finish and if it finds problems go to history and it will display what has been found and what it did about if.

Air tends to leak near trigger of my senco sls15 1/4" crown stapler . how can i stop it?


You have worn or broken o-rings/seals inside the gun. You need a Senco repair kit YK0393. Senco doesn't make them any more but there are still a few to be found on the internet. If you can't find one, go to the Senco webpage, find the parts breakdown for your gun and order all of the o-rings, seals and gaskets and rebuild your gun.

Don't try loading windows with out fixing the NTLDR...Try this simple steps in recovery console,

  • Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD drive, and then restart the computer.
  • Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  • Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter.
  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

COPY D:\i386\ntdetect C:\ (a file that may also be missing)


  • Then rebuild the boot configuration boot.ini file by

    DEL C:\boot.ini
    BootCfg /Rebuild

    Note:

    Do not use the repair option in the recovery console.

Installation CD will not solve UNLESS you do a complete rebuild of the system.

You can subscribe to one of the regitry cleaners that scan and then REPAIR the errors. I have found it worth it to do this. Sometimes you need to run the scanner/cleaner several times to clear all the errors.

Sir i have a problem with laptop,its effected from a.exe virus.how do i remove it,please help.i am usin gxp {profesional}


You will have to try a bunch of different software to get rid of this. Let's start you off from the top.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus.

Malwarebytes.

Ad-Aware.

Spybot Search & Destroy. (When installing Spybot, make sure to uncheck TeaTimer.exe. In other words, don't install it!)

AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

You will need to download each utility. After installing them, restart your computer. After the restart, open up NOD32 Anitvirus and update its security definitions file. After it has been updated, perform an in-depth scan on your entire computer.

After NOD finishes, exit the utility and open Malwarebytes. Update Malwarebytes' security definition files. Afterward run a full scan on your entire computer. After the scan finishes, remove anything found (restart if necessary).

After Malwarebytes finishes, open up Ad-Aware. Update Ad-Aware's security definition files. Afterward run a full scan. If anything is found, remove it and if necessary, restart your computer.

After Ad-Aware finishes, open up Spybot Search & Destroy. Update Spybot's files then exit Spybot. Now open up Spybot again and select the category, "Immunize." After the automatic scan finishes, select, "Immunize" at the top of the aplication. After immunization is complete, exit Spybot. Now open up Spybot, again. After Spybot loads run the scanner (Press, "Check for Problems"). After the scan finishes, remove anything found then restart if necessary.

After Spybot finishes, open up AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After the application finishes loading, perform an in-depth scan of all hard-drives. If anything is found, remove it then restart your computer.



If the virus remains after following the steps above you will have to get your computer repaired as it only gets trickier from here.

Let me know how it turns out for you. Don't hesitate to let me know if you need any more assistance.

You need to use the Recovery Tool from Creative's website at support.creative.com

Creative Zen
Try another PC or another USB port
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Reset
Check for firmware update on Creative's website
Get Recovery Tool from Creative
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If all else fails, check with this guy:
