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

1 Answer

Asus motherboard M2N-E will not power up


I just put together a new PC consisting of

Asus M2N-E motherboard
AMD Athon Dual Core processor
500W power supply
IDE harddrive
3 gigs RAM
ATI PCI Express Video Card

When I connected all the powersw, resetsw, etc..., the motherboard bulb lights up. I press the power button, and the case fan and the process fan only goes on for about 10 sec and stops. I tried the same connection on my old Asus motherboard and everything works...

I tried a 750 W powersupply, same results
a new motherboard, same results

I noticed that this motherboard is built more for the SATA device, but I have not install a SATA HD yet..

I am hestitate to think that it is the processor..but I am assuming that it may have went bad....

Any help is greatly appreciated to get it powerup and see the video of the ASUS logo on the monitor.

    I have the same issue, I am running a 20 pin ATX connector to the MB instead of the 24 pin. The Asus MB docs indicate that it should not cause an issue if the 12V delivers >15A.

    My Power Supply is delivering 18A on 12V.

    I Have Almost The Same Problem With Mine, Built It Last Oct. (2008) Ran Till Last Friday, Powered On Got To The Post, And It Just Hung There, So Naturally I Restarted To See If It Was A Onetime Thing(Hoping), It POSTed And Didn't Hang, Seemed Fine, Then PSU Cut Out. Tried It About 8Hrs. Later And Nothing.
    Fans Would Go/Light-Up HDD Fires Everything Seems Fine, But No Display Or Bios Checksum- Beeps, I Thought It Was The PSU But After Tying Three Different PSU's Different RAM(Slots, Type, Module,Etc.) Graphics Cards,CPU's, And HDD Same Thing Nothing, All That i've Tried Works In Different Systems(Tried In Three Others, And Worked) Final Result - Dead Board W/O Any Physical Sign Of Damage(I.E. Capacitors), This Is The ONLY Problem I've Had With The System, It's A Good Entry Level Multi-Media Board With A Short Life Span..... Solution: Try What I've Tried Above (And Also Check W/ A Voltage Meter) Maybe You'll Get Lucky, And If Not You Might Have To Replace The Dying/Dead Board.... If It's Fairly New It Should Have A 3Yr. Manufacturers Warranty Not Sure Though.

    - Hope This Helps Somebody.

It could be a memory card too. I would start by pulling the memory cards and see what happens.

Is there a connection on the motherboard for your hard drive?

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!

A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.

Good luck.

AMD Athlon 64x2 can't install, help!

which version update did you do?
only after 0804 will work


My system may refuse to boot under AMD Althon64 x2 6000+ CPU (OPN :ADX6000IAA6CZ) with 2x DDRII-800 memory combination.
The same problem does not happen with other CPUs, nor would it happen with memory modules of any lower specifications.
How can I solve this problem?
Please kindly update motherboard BIOS to version 0406 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0406 can be downloaded form the link below:
