If the chip on the bord burnt after seating the video card, I'd be inclined to throw both the motherboard (as it'll not be safe or stable enough to use now) and the video card (as it likely shorted the board) away ...

I am wiring a 4 pin trailer plug into my 1998 Dodge Durango's factory tail light harness. This vehicle did not come with a tow package of any sort. I installed the hitch and am trying to install the plug...

Hey brother,First thing you need is the relay box that changes everything to the newer harness.Can't wire it like you are,that's old school,till you have that change over box.Use a test ligh to make sure which is left and right signal on truck.Green goes to right,yellow to left,brown to running lights,and white on those 4 wire flat plugs IS defintely ground.Mount the little box/unit to your frame,plug an extension 4 wire flat plug to it,Hook up a seperat ground wire between the trailor and truck with a set of male female wire ends for extra grounding and put on a self tapping screw in frame or on a accesable bolt.Plug it all together and good to go.I've done thes things for years on end,and when they went to this new wiring setup,all I needed do was use that change over box.THAT's progress Bro.

I have a asus p4p800-vm motherboard I have everthing hooked up right the front panel wires power from the processor and power supply led lights hdd reset everthing but when I plug the computer up nothing...

Hi, maybe you should download a manual.

From here:

Just to check you have connected everything right.

First select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global for download.
The file has to be unziped before you can read it.

Have you installed the ram module and cpu correct ??
If you have installed a wrong type of ram it will not boot at all.
Does it makes any beep sound ??
Is the powersupply ok ??

If you are useing the onboard graphic check for loose connections.
Check with the manual that all connections are in order.

My computer light turns on then off, no fan no screen

Changed the power supply and Power On switch?
New parts? Okay. We'll come back to them. For now, lets look over some simple things.

I can tell you that even after 20+ years as a tech, I still get a little zealous, when it comes to building computers. Sometimes we get into a rush, and overlook the simple things.
1.Are you sure the 20/24-pin motherboard power cable, is in tight, and down in there?

2.Are you sure the Front Panel connector, is connected right on the motherboard? Some Front Panel's have individual wires with terminal ends, that go on separate pins on the motherboard Front Panel header.
I'm asking are you sure the Power On switch is connected to the right pins, on the motherboard Front Panel header.

Everything good so far? Okay, lets look at the motherboard.
Look at the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. Specifically the ones that surround the processor. See if they show obvious signs of being bad.
Here is a link that will show you what Electrolytic Capacitors look like, and the visual signs of failure of them,

Good so far? Okay, lets check out that power supply, and at the same time, check out the Power On switch. Even if these items are brand new, they can still be bad.

I need you to make a jumper wire. This is to jump the Soft Power On, part of the power supply.
Wire needs to be like the power supply connector wires. That thick. It needs to have insulation on it. Should be 3 inches long, and have about 3/4th's of an inch of insulation, removed from each end.
Twist the ends tight, and into a pointed shape. Bend the wire into a U shape.

The 20/24-pin motherboard power cable, needs to be plugged into the motherboard. Where the wires go into the connector, there are socket holes. For every wire going down in there, there is a metal terminal end, on the end of each wire. The metal terminal end is pretty far down in there. Your jumper wire must go down in the socket hole, with the wire that is in the socket hole now.

You will see a Green wire, and a bunch of Black wires. The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire.
ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.
You want to jump across the Green wire, to ANY Black wire. (You can use the Black wire that is next to the Green wire. Just wanted you to know that you could use ANY Black wire you see)

Computer plugged into power. You may want to wear a glove on the hand that plugs the jumper wire in. The reason is that there will be a spark.
Not a big one, but I want you to feel safe.
Just stick one end of the jumper wire, down in the Green wire socket hole. Make sure it's deep enough to touch that metal terminal end. Now since the jumper wire is a U shape, just stick the other end in the Black wire socket hole.

You only want to touch it momentarily. Around 1 to 2 seconds. Then remove it.

If the power supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch, or bad Front Panel header on the motherboard. If the power supply doesn't come on, you have a bad power supply.

With the power supply running, you can see if your motherboard is bad or not. I have seen VERY FEW motherboards, that have a bad Front Panel header. (Header is a -> Connector <- when referring to the motherboard)

Wont load up

If everything is working properly, then yes, those lights are normal. Many motherboards have LEDs on them to show standby power. You probably didn't notice them until you worked on the thing.

No Output to monitor, no beeps, fans all OK

Hi karanda,
The green led on the board shows green letting you know there is power to the borad.
Does your GFX card have dual outputs? Try plugging into the other output.
If your monitor light goes from green to amber than your PCI-E is not putting out signal. Pull & re-seat video card.
Did you check Asus to see if your CPU is supported & check what bios version you may need to run CPU?
Chcek here: Check what your M2M-E supports.

Your board only supports these two CPU's
Phenom 9500 (HD9500WCJ4BGD),2.2GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core
Phenom 9600 (HD9600WCJ4BGD),2.3GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core

You need Bios version 0802 in order to run the above CPU's.

Good Luck & kind regards!
