Question about ASUS CROSSHAIR Motherboard

1 Answer

ASUS Crosshair won't boot

I replaced the power supply and it booted once but now won't boot again. The power supplies work in another PC fine so I'm sure it's the mother board. It just almost like the ATX12V 8-pin cord into the MB isn't working, but i've swapped out all cords and power supply so something is wrong there. I'm trying to get my Serial number off of the board but the ASUS site won't accept my serial number on the board? Is there some weird extrapolation I have to use? It looks like C73BUM9-00797-80-MIB050-C04 0502 and I've tried 50 different combinations of the groupings, alternate spellings (substituting 8 and B for example cuz the writing is so small) and the ASUS phone number listed matches the one I have and it is disconnected. please help.

    I'm having the same problem with my Crosshair II Formula. When I turn it on it just repeatedly restarts. When I unplug the 8 pin +12V connector the power at least stays on but nothing else happens. I bought a new power supply thinking that was what the problem was but the same thing happened when I installed the new one.

    I had a similar problem last night. My home PC based on an Asus Crosshair m/b abruptly died and I couldn't get it started again. This morning I tried swapping my video card (single GeForce 8800) to a different PCIEX slot and the computer fired up normally. It works, but I'm not sure about the video card. Something inside the case (m/b? graphics card?) occasionally emits a beep, but I don't know what that is. The point is that if your video card or PCIEX slot went bad on you it could be preventing your computer from starting.

    same problem with my

  • tx_talisman Apr 27, 2009

    Same again - Just bought a 850W Modular - when plugged in and turned on the system powers on but nothing happens - the only difference is that the cpu fan usually spins at full speed for a split second then slows as it's POST screen comes up but this time there is no output to screen and the fan remains at full speed with CPU INIT on the mobo lcd. Confused - sending the power pack back but it's a bit worrying if this will repeat with other power packs too.

    I found out that my motherboard, after years of use, finally decided to take issue with my memory. I replaced the motherboard through ASUS support and still had problems installing my memory in dual configuration, and instead have to install them in single configuration in order to boot up. Although the manual says the memory can go up to what i was using, there were NO memory modules certified to actually perform as noted. So I guess, make sure your memory is listed as supported in the configuration you want to use it in by visiting the manufacturer website before buying it.

    colliewob the Asus CROSSHAIR has a 24-pinATX plus instead of the 4-pin there is a EPS+12V 8-pin connector.

    skytrails you say the PSU is working fine on another motherboard yes?, does the other mobo have the EPS+12V 8-pin connector too?

    If it doesn't then the problem could still be with the 8-pin plug/socket?

    I know what you mean about the Asus site btw, it's not that easy to find exactly what you want without running into problems. I found zeros & the letter 'O' can get mixed up a lot

    When your entering your serial are you putting in just the digits or the hyphens too?

P8P67 EVO Won't Boot with power to board

This is almost always the power supply. How exactly did you "check the power supply"? You checked all 12 or so voltage outs under load?

If replacing the power supply doesn't work, replace the motherboard.

My computer won't boot up and the orange light just stays on. The moniter is working, the fans in the power supply is working

Could be your motherboard. Does anything come up on the screen at all when you boot up? Do you hear a beep at startup? Also check to make sure your hard drive is spinning just to be sure.

Red light remains on and computer will not boot into start up routine

The red light means it is in standby. Try holding it in for 10 seconds , release and then try booting.
If that doesnt work , unplug it for at least an hout and try again, if the problem persists you have a hardware issue and if it is under warranty , you should contact either your vendor or asus directly.

No boot up

Try removing all memory except one board. If it does not come up switch boards. Still no luck, check power supply if you can or switch it with another. A power supply checker is pretty cheap, 10 to 15 dollars, and well worth the investment, although it is not foolproof. Try switching PS off, physically remove the BIOS backup battery, then replace it and try again. That should have cleared the BIOS back to factory defaults. It sounds like a memory problem, but as a last resort, you might reseat the CPU. The CPU fan runs, yes? Can you get some other memory to try? Well good luck!

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
