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

1 Answer

Hello, after about one year of well working this mobo starded giving problems. Now, when i turn on my PC the green power light on the mobo (sb pwr) is on as well as the green led on the case. The CPU (ATHLON 64 X2) and PSU (BITROM 500W) fans work, but the screen is black, no beeps, no POST, no BOOT, the mouse works but the keyboard not. I cleared the CMOS by the jumper (CLRTC) and tried to reset also the KBPWR jumper. I tested the system without the VGA (ATI 1950 PRO 256 MB), without the sound card (creative), without RAM (TWINMOS PC2 5300 CL5 512 MB X 2) but nothing. I'd like to reset the BIOS (in the past I solved in this way the same issue on another mobo) but i don't know if i did it by clearing the CMOS or not and what's the right way to do it. Can you help me?

1) You can just use C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall) to reset BIOS back to the factory default settings, as well as the CLRTC jumper. (Clear Real Time Clock. Another way of stating clear CMOS)

You may had luck in using this method on another mobo, but IMHO it isn't the problem/solution for this puppy.
I think you have a bad Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail.
Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can consume 51 to 125 Watts of power. (Maximum) Depends on what Processor it is.
The Asus M2N-E SLI mobo has an AM2 processor socket, and can use AMD processors that consume a lot of wattage.

No Processor operating, No computer.
No computer operating, there is No Video Signal to the monitor.
(No Signal)

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible Power Supply, to use for a test unit? Perhaps there is an unused computer. Maybe someone has upgraded to a better computer, and there is an unused one.

System wont turn on and there is a solid green light at the top of the mother board of my gateway 310 pc replaced batt on motherboard and it still wont turn on.


hello, this be caused by several things , i am assuming your are okay with opening up a PC since you have already changed the onboard battery.

here are few things you can try to further troubleshoot:
1: though the ligh on motherboard is on, power supply can still be faulty, so lets test that with a paper clip trick,
follow this link there are pictures and very clear instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_4732521_test-desktop-power-supply.html
if power supply is bad, well then you know what to do... change it.
if the power supply is good:
2: remove all the RAM (memory) chips from motherboard and plug the power cable back in and observe the response (you may or maynot hear THREE beeps) now plug in memory chip and try powering up and try with one chip at a time...if PC boots up with any of the chips in it you knkow you have a faulty memory.
if that didn't work:
3: with everthing put back together try disconnecting just the hard drive and power it to see if you see BIOS screen.
if not:
4: many time this worked for me with Gateway PCs, reseating CPU in its slot but only do it you feel confident doing it because you can end up with a GIANT door stop if any of the pins on the CPU are/is damaged.
you would need some thermal-paste to go back on between CPU and heatsink.
if that didn't work..i think you are up to buying new PC.

let me know if you need more help or not clear about anything...
good luck

System wont power on unless mb power connector on mb is reset


by mb pwr connector do you mean the swich on the pc case that you press to turn it on or do you mean the large block connector form the power supply ?

If you mean the case switch then you have a faulty one that is sendinga constant signal and locking up the power supply

Either way will work! No worries, it is just a switch. Just think about it. A jumper wire would work as well, right?
