Question about ASUS CROSSHAIR Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer won't boot up

I just put together my first computer. It took me 2 days of cursing and headscratching to put it together. So the problem is when I turn it on, nothing happens except the motherboard lcd just says cpu init. The processor fan doesn't even turn on. I tried the stock processor fan and a thermaltake v1. Neither of them turn on. I'm pretty sure I had them plugged into the right fan power connector. The Connector is the only 4 pin connector in the area that the diagram says it's in. The monitor (Samsung SyncMaster) just says check signal cable. My step uncle triple checked that everything was connected properly on the intial install. He took off when I was putting in the sound and graphic cards. It's a Asus Crosshair motherboard with a dinky sempron processor that I had to get the thing running so I could update the bios and put in a quadcore. I bought the motherboard last year before amds' quads came out incase you were wondering why I bought that board in the first place. The PS is a thermaltake 700watt. Four gigs of Corsair Dominator 1066. Soundblaster X-FI Elite Pro. Nvida 9800 GTX2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure that your power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. The LED you see lit may be the stand-by power indicator saying it has power and is waiting for the signal from the power switch.

I got a pool with a fns plus 60 DE filtering system thats depositing diatomaceous earth all over my pool.Took it apart cleaned the grids bought 2 new ones to replace the bad ones,put it back together...


The FNS PLUS was originally built by American Products under a different name and was absorbed into Pentair's line, recently replacing the PAC-FAB FNS (fiberglass nautilus) also absorbed by Pentair. The two filters have no common background.
The FNS PLUS has been cursed at by more pool techs than I can count. All I can say is practice helps but these are always a pain to get right. Make sure that the narrower of the elements is in the correct spot, the rest do not matter. Also check the manifold on all sides for cracks and make sure the air relief screen is set properly. I wish I had an easy solution for you, but this filter is just a pain, even for the guys that work on them every day.

I can't run "Curse: The Eye Of Isis" in Windows Vista - any hope ???


I have a "virtual" copy of Windows running on my computer at home that use for running older games and applications. There are several free programs out there... Microsoft has one: Virtual PC and there is a Open Source version hosted by Oracle: www.virtualbox.org With a dual-core or higher, 2GB or greater RAM, you can run a virtual desktop with ease... All you'll need is a old copy of Windows to install (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 98)

I just took apart my computer and put everything back together again but i get no display when i turn the computer on.


A common problem when putting a computer together is assembling the hardware in an incorrect order. 1. Install your CPU and fan 2. Install your RAM 3. Install the graphics unit 4. The order of the other components does not matter. 5. Connect power to all components and boot up.

I loaded witchis curse princess lsabella now i can not remove from my computer ever time i load my computer it loads game again and has to do a repair set up


Try press the F8 key several times as the computer boots up, then select boot up in Safe Mode.
When Windows starts up in Safe Mode click on Start - Control Panel - Add Remove program and select the Isabella program to Uninstall.
When the program has been removed then Shutdown the computer and boot up normally to see if the computer starts up normally.
If you still have a problem, please leave me a comment and explain what happened together with any error messages.

Ram Memory


I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!

Boot problem


Was the operating system installed on another computer? Or a computer with different hardware? If so the drivers for the hardware are not configured properly on the HD or in the BIOS. If this is the case you should format the HD and re-install the OS.
