Question about ASUS P5NSLI (0610839134670) Motherboard

1 Answer

Asus P5N-E SLI Mobo will not boot or post.

Bought a new Ausus P5N-E SLI mobo with Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 Processor, Corsair XMS2 2Gig Ram, and Nvidia 8600 GT video Card,WD 250G hard drive. Was very careful installing all the components, but when powered on, the only devices that functioned were the fans and mobo light(green), There was no POST beeps, no nothing. I also bought a new Ultra 700W PS. Could use some help. Have built pc's in the past, but this one is frustrating.

    I've done everything I can think of. The computer fires up, I get a beep but it doesn't post.

    Got new ram, tried it in every slot, cleared the bios, reseated the video card and still nothing. My power supply is 550W but the computer has been working fine for over 2 years. In fact, it worked this morning. I shut it down, took a shower, came back to boot it up and here I am with my desktop down.

Hi bart, please re-check you're memory. See page 1-17 in you're user manual. (Read everything)!
You're Asus board can not use 184-pin DDR DIMM's.
Also check the QVL list for supported memory page's 1-18 & 1-19.
I did not see Corsair on either page.
You're board can only use 240-pin DDR2 memory. Please read the "Notes" at the top of page 1-18.
If everything (Regarding memory) is within the Asus specifications than clear the cmos/bios & re-boot again. If you're system still does not boot than remove one DIMM & try again.
Asus warrants their boards for three years. Call Asus tech at
1-812-282-2787 EST, IL 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The call is on you but the service is free. It's worth every dime.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
Would you be kind enough to let me know what Asus suggested? (If it comes to that).

Mike

    Additional check.

    Remove the video card & re-seat. You must use the Blue slot if using a single PCI-E card.

Hi,
There is a couple of things you can do to troubleshoot this.
If there is an on-board VGA (video) port on the back, try that.
Clear the CMOS. On that spec board there should be a coloured plastic jumper next to or near the motherboard battery like this >>>>>

If there is no jumper then remove the power cord from the back and take the motherboard battery out for half an hour then replace and see if you get a post screen.
If it still suffers from the same symptoms then there could be micro fissures between solder points on the motherboard as Intel's tend to run fairly hot.
This means you have to re-float the motherboard and is a last resort repair.
If you need anymore help or advice please post back.


Good luck.

HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E%20SLI

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1474/1474_10.pdf
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.

Blank Screen, no beeps, New Build


Hi Durmo, your troubles may be the SLI card. If you are using a single 8500GT make sure your SLI card is plugged into the motherboard as a single graphics card. See page 3-9 in your manual. If your 8500GT has dual out puts check both for display. Only one will show you display.
If you have this set correctly & you have tested your monitor on another system (& it is good) yet no display from the system than contact Asus. This board was make in 2007 & is warranted up to 2010. You can do this online or call Asus at 1-812-282-2787 M-F EST. Other countrys click the dropdown menu at Asus home page. http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=473&model=1474&modelmenu=1

Post if you need more info.
Good luck!

ASUS P5N-E SLI


Try RAM with a different speed. My 800 mhz RAM didn't work until I installed 533 mhz RAM and adjusted to 800 mhz in BIOS. Newly built PC, default must be set as 533 mhz because I reset the CMOS and still couldn't POST to BIOS. Only taking out all RAM gave me any sort of audible error code. Luckily I found some 533 RAM before I RMA'd the board.

Computer Build Problem


Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.
