Question about ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard
I lost the fan on the power supply. Put in new power supply, but computer is shutting down in appx 3 seconds. checked all connections...Pentium 4 dual 2 ..led light on board working....changed out processor same result. Have I lost the board??
Hi tenbear8, I checked the bios date for the motherboard. I'm guessing this board came out in late 2005. Asus warrants their boards for three years. With this in mind it’s worth a call to Asus tech. Open you're case & find the white sticker on the LPT port. Write down the information there. Call Asus M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EDT. The number is 1-812-282-2787. You will not be on the phone very long before a tech picks up. (Free support).
The tech will want the information you wrote down from the sticker.
In the mean time update you're bios with the latest flash.
Bios number 0809, it has a fix for CPU string correction in the bios. It may just do the trick.

Download the bios file & download the Bios Utilities.
Either way it will not hurt to call Asus even if the bios flash fix's the system. The more information you can get from Asus the better. (They know their boards better than anyone).
If you're board is bad Asus will know & if it’s still in warranty you're looking at receiving a replacement board. Nothing to loose & everything to gain.
Good luck tenbear8!
Please let me know how things work out with Asus.
