Question about ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Digital Home Series - Motherboard - ATX - i975X - LGA775 Socket - UDMA100, UDMA13...

1 Answer

Is this motherboard making a lot of constant pieeeep noise, because i replaced my Watt supply with a 26 DB and got still the same noise Its not my videocard or HD's/S-ATA's that are making the constant pieeeeeeeeeeep noise because i have turned them off and still got the pieeeeeep noise. So only thing left is the Quad Core Q6600 that makes the noise or the motherboard Asus P5W Digital Home, if its the motherboard is there anything I can do about it ? I even tested the memory which ofcourse wasnt it.

    The 'pieeeep' noise you hear is a Beep. You are hearing a BIOS Beep Code. The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it. What are you talking about replaced a Power Supply with a 26DB? DB stands for Decibels. A rating of sound. Watts is what Power Supply's are rated in. Post back in a Comment. (You DID have the computer unplugged from power before working on it, and you DID observe Anti-Static Precautions, correct?)

DB meter


To measure the sound pressure you have to take lots and lots of things in account. The correct measurement tool, the correct characteristics of the microphone and filters. Correct distance between source and microphone and so on and so on. Just having a DB meter won't give you any correct measurement.
Beter start googling a few days and read some scientific papers than sales talks about db meters.
You let is sound as if anyone who buys a car immediately can drive one, or anyone who buys a scalpel can operate.

My power supply is making a tweeting noise. Is it about to go or what?


Replace the power supply. Also clean all dust out of the unit, do not let fans spin up with any air pressure. Consider replacing all fans, they just fail over time...

N15232 motherboard wattage help


the power supply wattage rating is MAX wattage, not constant wattage. the power supply only outputs the amount of power that the rest of the computer calls for, and no more. if yor computer only needs 200 watts, that is all that will be sent from the power supply; even if it has a max rating of 600 watts, it will only send the amount of watts which your computer calls for.

New replacement power supply makes continuous high-pitch sound


If the computer turns and works (other than the noise) then the wiring is correct. The ATX plug should be keyed so it is almost impossible to hook up incorrectly, and the wiring is for the most part standardized. However, there could be a problem if it is an older computer and your replacement power supply is from a Dell. Dell ATX power supplies, mostly from the PII to PIII era were not wired to the standard ATX pinouts. So, if you put a non-Dell power supply in an older Dell, or if you put an older Dell power supply in a non-Dell PC of any age, your wiring will not be correct. Usually incorrect wiring means either it fries or just doesn't start at all.

Specialized PC's or high end servers may also use non standard power connectors.

If you paid less than $40.00 for the power supply, the problem is most likely just a bad / poorly made power supply. Most of the budget power supplies are extremely cheaply made. They will sometimes have a lot of noise/whine/hum, and often fail quickly. In a lot of cases you will be able to tell the quality of the power supply just by the weight. The cheap ones are usually as light as can be. A good power supply will have some heft to it, as it will have large heatsinks and heavy duty components. If you have a Radio Shack nearby you could pick up a Thermaltake 300 to 450 watt power supply and try it and see if the problem goes away. They have a pretty flexible return policy. If you have a high quality power supply, it could be that you just got a bad one. Try another to confirm. If you try a Thermaltake and it still whines (and never made noise before this problem came up) then it could be that other components in the PC are near failure--possible as a result of your previously failing power supply. My experience though has been that unless the power supply popped (as in literally blew out) the motherboard and other internals aren't usually affected.
I am assuming here that the computer is starting up. If not, make sure that that all the necessary power leads are hooked up. Newer motherboards may have have a 20 or 24 pin main ATX power connector. They may also have a secondary 4-pin 12v connector to power the CPU. If you are mixing a really old or new revision power supply with an opposite age motherboard there may be a problem of not having the appropriate connections available.

Finally, if you are under-powered, you could also experience problems. What is the wattage of your new power supply and what type of computer/CPU? If you are running a 200 watt power supply to power a modern motherboard/CPU you may not be able to supply the power needed. This could result in a stressed power supply, which may make noise, or just power offs or system instability.

I very much recommend spending the extra dollars for a well made power supply. I have replaced many of the $20.00 units. Even if they say they are 350 or 450+ watts, they don't hold up. Often the computer will start random power offs and then the supply will fail completely. A good supply will usually come with a 5 year warranty and will be generally problem free.

Here is a link to a wiring diagram for the ATX plug--just to be complete.

NEED POWER SUPPLY FOR ELITEGHROUP L7VMM2 MOTHERBOARD


There is no specific power suppl that you need. The only differce is the wattage 300, 350 , 500 etc. Your motherboard will work with all types not to worry. The only reason you get a higher wattage power supply is if you plug in a lot of stuff. say you have 3 HDD and 2 CDROMS then you would need the 500 Watt power supply.

Remember a lot of Dell power supplies and motherboards are proprietary so you cannot use generic parts.
