Question about ASUS M2A-VM (0610839149438) Motherboard

5 Answers

Boot problem Installed in old eMachine chassis, front panel connectors don't match mobo. Jumpered PWRSR and RESET on mobo and on-board LED lights, CPU fan runs, chassis fan runs. There is no beep code(s), no CD/DVD or HDD activity, no sign of boot on display. Tried different PSU; reset BIOS cmos; disconnecting CD/DVD & HDD; and insulating mobo from contact with chassis other than thru connecting screws. This chassis uses raised "dimples" in place of brass standoffs. Mobo, Athlon 64 x2 4800+ PIB and Kingston RAM KVR667D2N5/1G, are all new. I would really appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks for the "Beep" codes, however, I specifically stated that I do NOT get any. The boot process doesn't go that far and/or the speaker is not functioning. In addition, my system is not a Compaq, it is a custom build based upon an Asus M2A-VM mobo.

    If you have any questions I will gladly answer them



    First thing todo is to unplug everything that is not required, to start up, leave only the required parts, motherboard, psu, memory, vga. cpu connected. Then remove the ram and see if you hear the beep codes. put the ram back and try starting again.



    Remember to check all the power cables includeing the 4 pin cpu power connector thats a common mistake, too common.



    Thank you,

Only jumper the power switch (PWRSR), if you also jumper the reset then it would be like constantly pressing the reset button. Also, only momentarily short the power switch jumper to mimic pressing the power button, if not it will also be like constantly pressing the power button which will turn the machine off in about 4 seconds.

I good way of knowing if your motherboard is OK is to remove the RAM and listen for the POST beed code that indicates no RAM. If there is multiple sticks of RAM, try them one at a time.

If video is not on-board you can also remove the video card to listen for the no video beep code.

    Did you try only jumping the power switch connector momentarily and removing the jumper from your reset switch connector altogether?



    If this still doesn't work then you may have gotten a defective motherboard. Asus's site state that you should contact your reseller about warranty issues with your motherboard. (http://support.asus.com/repair/repair.as...)

First remove the power plug from the smps and press the power switch few time and wait for few minutes the re plug the power connector to the smps and switch on the computer if you still dont have power then you will have to check whether the smps work to test that its not enough to test the voltage in the 21/24 pin you will have to short the green wire and the black wire and see whether the smps fan is working if the fan is not working then the problem is with smps

Motherboard booting problems...How do I solve?


Hi

Try to boot with 1 stick of ram then swap it with the other and try again. Next unplug the case front connections from the mobo header (pins). Draw a sketch where they all go so you don't forget. I'm talking about the power switch, reset SW, HDD LED etc. Also remove anything connected to the back panel printers etc. Also remove the mouse and keyboard. Carefully, momentarily short the pins that were connected to the power switch and note results.

If it still doesn't boot, remove all parts from the mobo except 1 Stick of RAM, graphics card, PSU, and of course CPU. Leave the mouse and keyboard unplugged. Try to boot by shorting the mobo pins again. If it doesn't boot it is most likely either the PSU or the mobo. It could also be the CPU or RAM but it is less likely.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Dell Dimension 3000, splashed liquid from canned air, mobo fried?


The spray on the MB should not be a problem - unless it was plugged in when you did it. Yes, you should be able to put in a new Dell motherboard. As long as the processor is of the same class, the Dell license should work fine. However, you may need to download new drivers for the machine to run.

If you really want to check the power supply, I would suggest you buy a tester. They are fairly cheap: $10-50. You want to be sure that your board is getting the right power at the right places. 12 V to the fan is fine. However, 3.3 v or 1.5 v?

It sounds like you have done a fairly good test of the motherboard. I've definitely seen bad Dell motherboards with the light on with/without a bad power supply.

If you have another case (an ATX), I would buy an Asus or other motherboard and put your equipment in it. The cost of a Dell motherboard is excessive. Of course, you will have license problems with XP.

Worked out F_PANEL connectors.


Every motherboard has its connections manual, also case has marks and signs at its connectors, if your case has more then your motherboard it can be front panel audio and usb jack go to your motherboard manufacturer web site and search for manual for your model. Also there will be upgrades of your bios and also CPU types your motherboard supports. If you CPU is correctly inserted and when power on it ons and then automatically offs may caused because you dont have CPU fan installed and it cant cool so automatically powers off.

Supermicro X6DAL-TG boot problem


I have 3 of these boards; however, they all have the Nocona Xeon with a Front Side Bus speed of 800MHz. The manual does not say anything about using a 533fsb. A second thought was if your power supply is an ATX with a 24 pin power connector and two +12 connectors one 8 pin and one 4 pin? The manual states all three need to be connected for the Xeon Processor.

Most Mobo's have printing next to the places that are jumpered or pluged into. The ones you need sould be close to the edge of the mobo, that is close to the front {power button} side.

Fans runs but no post,no beeps.


The best advice I can give you is to remove the motherboard battery (UNPLUG THE PSU BEFORE YOU WORK ON THE MOTHERBOARD) and let the system sit for about an hour. If the CMOS settings are corrupted, removing the battery will erase the corrupted data in the CMOS, which will automatically reset the CMOS to the default settings... Then, plug the battery back into the motherboard, and try to boot the system...

If that doesn't work, you should disconnect EVERYTHING attached to the PSU, and remove ALL of the add-in cards (modem, NIC, soundcard, TV tuner, whatever you have), and install ONLY the CPU, the heatsink/fan (don't forget to PLUG THE CPU FAN IN), ONE stick of RAM... you get the idea. DISCONNECT the HDD, the FDD, the optical drive, and ANYTHING ELSE from the PSU. When you're ready to test the system, you should have ONLY the CPU, the HSF, and one DIMM plugged into the motherboard. Attach the PSU connectors (both the main ATX connector AND the auxiliary 4-pin 12-volt connector) to the motherboard, and try to boot the system. If it works, SHUT DOWN and UNPLUG THE PSU; then install ONE component (the floppy drive, for example), reattach the PSU, and reboot the system. If the system POSTs, shut down, unplug, and add another device. If the system does NOT complete the POST process, the last piece of hardware you installed is probably the culprit.

Take your time with this; be methodical, and make GOOD notes about the steps you've followed, so we can help you work through this problem...

Best of luck to you; keep us "posted" on your progress...

Motherboard or CPU dead?


The burning smell (if it was a fishy type smell) may have come from the mobo psu 21 pin connector where you plug in the psu. The connection may not work properly because of melted plastic deposits which may be why you are unable to turn it off at the switch. Just check the old psu connector for signs of rusting pins and mis-shaped connector. If you have a fairly recent mobo and processor ensure that the power supply doesnt need the power supply from the psu, unlike some processors where the power is taken from the ZIF mobo socket.
