Question about ASUS P5NT WS (P5NT WS GREEN) Motherboard
Mobo will not POST. I do not grt a POST beep. Tried clearing CMOS (number of times). I think I need a new BIOS chip. When I turn on the system the green pwr lght on the mobo lights & I hear the HD actuator activate. The HD access light stays lit. Other than that... nothing.
I had the same problem; I had to turn it on and off about 10-15 times to get it to boot. It seems to have been caused by my USB keyboard and mouse. So I removed the "Removable storage" from the boot menu, in the BIOS settings and it works fine now.

It turns out that the BIOS was corrupted somehow.I contacted ASUS & worked with a tech who was ready to RMA the motherboard but I asked that they send me a BIOS chip first so that we could try that before we RMA the board. I got the chip yesterday. I repleased the old version 1001 BIOS chip with the new version (news flash! New BIOS a/o 6/10/2008) 1104 BIOS updated chip. Walla! I GOT POST! Of course the machine had no memeory, HDD or vid card attached so I put it back together & I am up & running!

Have you tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery with PSU off and then shorting the 'reset cmos" (or similar) pins on mobo?
Also found this on the ASUS web site under the specs for the P5NT WS board...
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support DVD. Users can reboot their system through the support DVD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process. ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.
Have you tried this?
