Question about Cornerstone ASUS TXP4 Socket 7 AT Motherboard (CLEAN PULLS)

1 Answer

Asus TXP4 Motherboard will not turn on

After I hit the power button on my Asus TXP4 MOBO it just sits there. Power is getting to (AT) P8 & P9 as well as the the switch. I replaced the Power Supply Unit (and switch) with a brand new one I luckily found. No change. I do not see any lit lights on the MOBO. But after I turn on and off the switch 50 or 60 times it finally turns on (CPU fan) but it just sits there and does'nt boot. The ISA video card lights up both red and green. Installed, is Window 95 which I must have to run a PF cutting saw the computer is connected to. So, my delema is to replace the motherboard and video card with another ASUS TXP4 (so my hard drive will work) or find a compatible MOBO that will except my hard drive? What MOBO is compatible with the TXP4 so my hard drive will work? Is this right or can I do something else? The software that is installed on the hard drive to run the saw is no longer sold and I must use this hard drive until it fails. I do not have the physical software to reload on another hard drive. Please help!

Most likely you are looking at a bad motherboard, there is probably a break somewhere in the connections. Check for blown capicators that would be a smoking gun. You can use a different motherboard but it has to be one that is compatible with your CPU. Most motherboards will come with a driver CD so you should be ok. It shouldn't be a big deal with your Operating System or Hard Drive if you replaced your motherboard. Otherwise, you could upgrade to a new system and do a image copy of your HDD to a new computer/HDD. I recommend Acronis True Image makes it really easy.

My asus m2n32-sli motherboard won't start up; runs for 4 seconds then shuts off. currently hooked up to the mobo: have a 500W power supply; AMD 3300 64 processor; zalman cpu fan; 2 patriot 2GB DDR2...


Sounds like you built this puppy.

1) Does it use metal standoff's to hold the motherboard up off the Support Plate? (Standoff is metal, Spacer is plastic)

Do the standoff's match EVERY mounting hole in the motherboard?

To wit, there isn't a standoff sitting on the support plate, that doesn't match up to a mounting hole in the motherboard?
If there is a standoff in the wrong spot, it could be shorting against the exposed solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard.

2) is the 4-pin +12 volt power cable from the Power Supply plugged into the motherboard?

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

[ Two Yellow 12 Volt wires, two Black Ground wires ]

3) Thermal paste applied, and properly? AMD processors don't play when it comes to heat. If they reach the thermal limit, (Like any Processor), they turn off, BUT, an AMD will turn off in a heartbeat.

Heatsink sitting flat on the top of the Processor's case? I use a 'birds-eye' view with the mobo out, and look across the side. (Sides, ends)

4) Zalman fan doing it's thing? Spinning?
Spinning all the time, no intermediate spinning of spinning a few times, and stop?
Spinning at the proper RPM?

5) Patriot ram seated well? Locks are in tight?

Didn't get bumped when you were hooking up power cables?
Remove/re-seat. Only takes a few minutes, and will help you sleep better tonight.
(Both of those ram memory modules in the same channel?)

6) Power Supply known to be good?

What is with the 40GB Seagate harddrive? Typo, and meant 400GB?

Asus mobo flashes on startup, no video


You should unplug the power cord from the power supply, pop out the cmos battery, switch the bios reset jumper to the 2 and 3 pins, wait about a minute, put the jumper back to 1 and 2 pins, put cmos battery back in, plug in power cord to psu and turn on pc. If you have any issues with this process please refer to your owner manual for the motherboard or look one up on their website. Please let me know if this fixes your issue.

My system won't start. I testd the power supply and it is good.There is a light on the mobo that is lit. But nothing runs. It happened when I hit the sleep button to put sys to sleep. It shut off instead...


You may now have a "frozen" system. Try this and see if it helps.

  1. Open your computer case. Make sure it is not plugged to avoid danger.
  2. Remove the RAMs from the motherboard.
  3. Power ON your computer. Your system should BEEP to indicate that is detected an error.
  4. Power OFF your CPU and return the RAMs in place. Your computer should be working now when you turn it ON.

Asus mobo totally dead, no post, no beep, no power switch. help me please..


have you checked the power supply to make sure it is turned on, if so then proceed to the power cable and make sure it is plugged in to the back of the computer and the wall socket, if everthing checks out there take the side panel off of your computer and check to see if there are any little lights on the mobo if so then you know the mobo has power if it functioning properly the next step would be to replace the mobo with a new motherboard.

MOTHERBOARD wont boot up


verify that when you mounted the motherboard you placed all the mounting screws in the right places one misplaced screw and the charge sent through your motherboard will be pushed out and dispersed into the case

Stuck on asus logo on startup??


Same problem here with my wife's Asus laptop. Called Asus and they said to unplug charger, remove the battery in the back, hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Then, replace battery, then charger, then press the power button and wait for startup. First time it got stuck at the windows loading bar screen for like 5 min. which is abnormal. Did a hard power down (press and hold power button til it shuts off) then restarted again. That time it worked and all is well so far. Could have been due to a static charge as she was on our couch with our dog backing up movies so charge might have entered through the CD/DVD drive opening. (?) Not sure, but if you are sitting on a static-prone couch with your laptop its probably best to sit on top of a bounce sheet.
