Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

Problem starting up my computer

I built my own computer last summer and it has been running great with 3 hard drives and an optical drive since then. This week I added a fourth hard drive. The computer started fine and ran for a day with no trouble reading off the new drive. The next day I heard the computer making a buzzing noise and saw that the processor fan was slapping some wires within the computer. I immediately shut it off but since then everytime I have turned on the computer, none of the lights on the mouse or keyboard turn on and the monitor does not recognize the computer. I can hear all the hard drives spinning normally and am not sure what the problem is. I have checked the said wires for damage and can find none I also tightened the processor fan back onto the processor as it was loose and cleaned out the fan which was very full of dust. If you could please point me in any directions as to how to fix the computer I would greatly appreciate. I have no idea how to get any response from the computer.

    Maybe you have to change the fan.

Is the PC Beeping at the end of the POST ( power on self test)
It should beep just before the bios screen appears(this is the screen which lists all the installed cards etc in the system along with the hard drives and the various other parameters) if not, it is not completeing or even starting the POST.
You may have a critical error so make sure ALL cards and RAM chips are fully and correctly installed.( touch a bare metal part of the chassis BEFORE touching anything inside the case)
If you still have probs, did you touch a part of the bare metal chassis BEFORE you touched anything else?
You may have spiked the board with static discharge.

this can be caused by a number of reasons

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets

hope this helps you

Simple test: disconnect the hard drive and the optical unit and try to boot in BIOS. If you can't then the first thing you should check is the memory, followed by the processor. If you can then the hard drive is dead.

Powering Issues


Unplug the computer power,

Take a close look at the motherboard, find the cmos battery..usually looks like a big shiny nickel, carefully remove

Let the computer sit for 5 minutes.

Put the new hard drive back, if it works great. If not repeat with the old drive.

Let me know what happens.

Primary hard drive not found


Hi,
since you already tried removing and reseating the hdds . The problem could be the motherbaord slot. To troubleshoot the same
1. First Disconnect all hardrives and optical drives from the system
2. Go to the system setup or BIOS
  1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  2. When the blue DELL™ logo appears, press <F2> immediately.

If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

3. Hold down the ALT key and press "F"
4. Hit ESC , save changes and exit .
5. SHutdown the system
6. Reconnect the HDD IDE cable to the optical drive connector on the motherboard.
You can refer to the following motherboard diagram
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4550/techov.htm#1101668

7. Check if the hdd , is getting detected in the system setup
You can refer to the following link on how to read system setup screen

Thanks

Intermittent POST issue.


how long does the post takes it to finish before it goes to boot? are there external device connected to your computer like a printer or external hard drive or flush drive? try updating your bios and motherboard chipset.
