    I have the same problem with my ASUS motherboard & have been researching this problem on forums on the internet for HOURS. Seems like alot of ASUS motherboards are having the same problem, no post, no boot, no beeps, no display, HDD led stays lit, etc. The ONLY answer i've seen so far is that its faulty BIOS. Someone stated he had the same symptoms, contacted ASUS tech support & replaced the MB BIOS with a new one and worked great (see: http://www.fixya.com/support/t835305-p5n...) Doesn't sound like you have a display adapter problem but rather something more tricky like the rest of us...

Can you try another monitor?
Since you did try another video card (AGP). I posted (In you're other post), you have to make a bios adjustment under Advanced menu. Once you're P4SP-MX bios is set to boot to the AGP or set to Enable. The bios will no longer try to load the on-board VGA card. I am not being picky about the statement I am going to make ( so don't be offended). Monitor's only receive signal. They do not send signal to PC, just receive. The odds of two video cards not working is high. You did mention you have not heard P.O.S.T (A single beep), which is a test of the motherboard. There could be a loose connection in you're PC. I would remove the memory first. Clean the contacts with alcohol on a cotton swab & blow out the memory slots with canned air (allow time to dry). Than firmely reseat the memory. I would than re-check all data & power connectors within the PC, making sure all are securley connected. With respect to the AGP card, I would do the same. Remove, clean & reseat. Most older AGP's require additional power. Some use a power cable that is also used to power a floppy drive & others use a 4 pin molex (see link),
http://pinouts.ru/connector/4_pin_Molex_power_connector.shtml.
When you are in the bios & within the Advanced menu you may also need to set the bios to read you're AGP card to the correct speed. (EX: 1x,2x,4x). Page 2-19 in you're manual. Once all these checks & cleaning have been completed, try again. Boot the PC and hopefully you will see display on you're monitor.

Post here. Let me know how thing go. Don't assume anything, check all.
Luck!
Mike

Monitor works perfectly, but after a recent crash of my comp. Ive lost all sound ..The comp doesnt seem to recognize the build in speakers..


The computer does not have to recognize the powered speakers that are built-in the monitor, the computer feeds the analog audio signal the powered speakers inside the montior, there is no driver needed either, but you do need the PC sound card driver for you to get sound through any powered speakers (either the desk top powered speakers or the one inside the montior).
Since your computer had crashed, the driver for the sound card may be have to be reloaded.
You can verify if the monitor speakers are working or not by feeding it with an MP3 player or sound output from CD player.

Compaq montior FS7600 turns on but orange light only lights up and it doesn't go to green. Screen never turns on.


This may not be the monitor at fault; if it isn't receiving synchronization signals from the video card or circuit, this is also how it may act. Try disconnecting it from the computer; if it brings up any kind of screen message, the monitor is OK but not receiving video. If possible, borrow a monitor and try it with your computer to ensure that the computer is supplying signal at all.

My neighbor has a monitor that won't turn on. When it is turned on, it flashes <monitor going to sleep" That is all it does and we can't get to the desktop to try and correct this.


That means that the montior is not getting a signal from the computer. Have you tried plugging another monitor into the computer. Really the only way to troubleshoot the problem is to hook another monitor to the computer to see if the video card is outputting a signal. If it doesnt work with a known good monitor, you'll know that the monitor is bad.

Computer does not work


it can be your video card... do u happen to have another computer?
If you do have another computer, then i suggest you take teh video card from this one and try plugging it in to the other one and see if it works , if not ull have to get a new video card.

If it does work in the other computer, then it might be something you did in bios. Try clearing the CMOS battery on your mobo (motherboard) [google ur mobo and look it up on google images to see where the CMOS battery is}. That should reset the bios and if you're lucky, your monitor will get a signal back.

pls be kind and rate my response... ill try best to further help you
and also if u can pls write back and tell us if u fixed teh problem...thnx

Montiors shut off


if the monitor goes into standbye when you plug it into the computer , it generally means there is NO signal coming from your video adaptor.
Plug the old monitor in , if it works, ide suspect the new monitor(s) are not working correctly.
if it doesnt work , you need to restart the computer in safe mode by repettitively tapping the f8 button as the computer starts, before it says "starting windows".
If you have a signal on your monitor in safe mode, then most likely you have a bad or corrupted video driver and it will need to be updated.
if you have no video in safe mode , you will need to remove the cover and physiclly check that all add-in card power cables and memory chips are squarly seatied in there slots. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE COMPUTER AND DISCHARGE ANY STAIC BUILDUP IN YOURSELF BY GROUNDING (TOUCHING) SOMETHING METAL BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE COMPUTER.

Computer doesnt start


It sounds like your struggles may have damaged the motherboard. See other issues in this forum with this motherboard - partcularly with bowing of the board. Too much bowing can cause internal traces in the PCB to break. Only way to tell now is have it professionally looked at.
