Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

1 Answer

Still same problem. Computor wont come on. Motherboard green lite is on.

I removed 3 memory sticks and the video card with same results. I also unpluged each drive one at a time. Still no help. I also unpluged both dvd drives and each fan motor also one at a time.
Do you think I have a bad motherboard or PSU?
PSU is a Thermaltake w0106ru 700w.

Thanks for the reply

    Thanks for the help. I followed your advise and started from zero.

    The problem was I forgot something very simple, I didn't plug in the second ATX connector. Stupid mistake but, you know it does help familarize you with all the connectors.

    Thanks again for your help. I guess sometimes it helps to have a second brain.

Would need to get a 4 digit bios post card

like this one on ebay

remove the front panel connectors from the motherboard and use a screwdriver to start up the pc. Thats incase the power button is faulty / stuck somehow.

Can't say which is faulty or what is wrong without haveing a look at it myself..

basicly if you remove everything else but psu, motherboard, vga, cpu, memory. so you have the basics to start up. btw try removeing all the ram, you should hear beeps do you hear any beeps?

So it shutsdown right after power on? Might be the psu, I can't say for sure.

Will not boot just colured screen jumping

these might be possible cause:
1. the memory stick is loose in its slot or dirty contacts
solution- remove memory stick, clean the contacts(those shiny copper traces near the edge) with pencil eraser by gently rubbing until it is shiny again, blow/remove the eraser residue.
2. memory stick defective.
Solution: have the memory stick tested on other pc, if confirmed defective, replace
3. video card defective-
Solution: to confirm if the video card is the culprit, remove video card, use on-board VGA slot to your monitor, it should boot by now, otherwise the motherboard and the processor is the last suspect.

When i turn on the laptop the green light and the charging light turns on but the orange light does not light up and the screen wont start Help Me , Thank u

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

Pc driver for sony psp-1000

It's not so easy to erase PSP OS and if even you do it you wil brick your PSP(Your screen will be black when you will turn on it and only green light will flash few times.) I think you have bad memory stick or something like that. Because you are browsing memory stick and not PSP when you connect PSP to computer. Check if you have memory stick inside your PSP. Try to format memory stick in PSP. You can also try to restore PSP deafult settings. If you have Card Reader try to read and format card on computer. If nothing helps buy new memory stick.

MSI x48c mobo keeps powering on and off. Won't post. No video signal. Video card and power supply and memory are all new and all work in other computers.

your motherboard is bad. Try the following before RMA'ng it.

1. Remove all the cards and memory.
2. Recheck your power supply connections
3. Remove, clean the thermal paste and reapply new
thermal paste (follow the manufacturer's directions)
4. Reseat the CPU.
5. Install one stick of ram
6. If the motherboard has an onboard video connect your monitor to it.
7. Try powering it up.

If that works, add the rest of the memory a stick at a time. If the system continues to power up, then install the Video card, and test again. Finally if everything is functional, chalk up the previous problems to bad karma. If the system fails to power up, and stay powered up after adding a component, then that is the faulty part.

Worked fine now no display

one of few possibilities, either no input form video card (possible bad video card), or loose video cord. or on flat video cards, you can choose from the menu to use digital signal or analog signal, if you have chosen what u do not have , u might have gotten that result.

3 beeps when start the computer, no live screen

This is either memory or video related. If the video is built into the motherboard, just add a video card to one of the slots and check it out. If you have more than one stick of memory, pull one out and then the other to test each stick. Also make sure both the video card and the memory modules are seated properly; just remove them and put them back in again.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this a thumbs up rating.

Comp doesn't power anything

It's likely to be these four main culprits:

Video Card / GPU




Start by opening up the case (with the power removed of course) and try removing and reseating your video card and memory sticks.

Then restart the computer.

If nothing changes, try removing the bios battery with the computer unplugged for about five minutes then put it back.

If those don't work then it's probably a motherboard problem, but if you get any beeps messages or anything else changes, let me know and I'll throw some ideas your way.

PC want start after replacing memory card


1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.

2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.

3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.

3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.

Hope that this helps :)
