    Is 300 watt enough juice ? newer mobo need more juice than 300 watt , over look your manual to see what power supply is suggest your video card vender will also tell you what they suggest you use for sufficient power

Just installed one of these cards myself. I did a little searching around and found that if you clear the CMOS, by adjusting the jumpers located on the motherboard as indicated in the manual, it will do the trick. Simply unplug the computer, move the jumper, leave it for a minute or so, then move it back to its original position and plug it in. Worked for me :)

Verify that when you mounted the motherboard you placed all the mounting screws in the right places one misplaced screw and the charge sent through your motherboard will be pushed out and dispersed into the case

Hi, maybe you should download a manual.

From here:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_478/P4P800VM/#download

Just to check you have connected everything right.

First select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global for download.
The file has to be unziped before you can read it.

Have you installed the ram module and cpu correct ??
If you have installed a wrong type of ram it will not boot at all.
Does it makes any beep sound ??
Is the powersupply ok ??

If you are useing the onboard graphic check for loose connections.
Check with the manual that all connections are in order.

Hello
You may have the reboot or restart wires backwards.Or on the wrong pins on the motherboard.

Here is a link to your mobo. Shows correct hook up.

Also be sure your memory sticks are in proper slots.If you have 2 they need to be seperated.
One in one channel the other in the second channel slot.Usually the slots are color coded.

Red power light and reset button on but nothing else boots


Verify that the cpu is properly seated and latch is closed. Check that the power supply connector is properly installed and the power supply works. Double check your connections on the motherboard for the on/off and rest switches are correct. If you do not have the switch connector properly hooked up then you will get no response from the computer when it is pressed. Also check that the screws holding the motherboard to the case are screwed in tightly...the board uses these screws for electrical ground.

New build pc no boot... black screen


Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable

Asus A8N-VM CSM wont boot, no fans come on or anything, green light comes on the motherboard, is the CPU dead? tried different ram still the same. any help would be great!


CHECK ALL JUMPER ON THE BOARD AND MAKE SURE THE BOIS RESET JUMPER IS ON JUMPER 1-2, SOUND LIKE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM NOT ENOUGH WATT TO RUN THE SYSTEM

2ND OPTION, REMOVE ALL WIRE AND ADDTIONAL CARDS, MIN. MEMORY, LEAVING 1 STICK OF RAM, VEDOI CONNECTION , AND THE POWER TO THE BOARD, CONNECT ONE WIRE AT A TIME AND RESTARTING THE MACHINE EVERY TIME UNTIL YOU FIND THE PROBLEM.

Computer Build Problem


Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.

PC WONT START ASUS A7S8X-MX


So if i'm getting this correctly your computer will not boot even with just the basics.  Have you tried directly shorting the pins on the mobo instead of using the power button?  Unlikely problem but it would be an easy fix.  You might also want to take your power supply out and get it tested.  The geek squad at best buy will usually do that for free, or you can buy your own tester, or buy a cheap power supply.  If both the switch and power supply are good and you get nothing trying to start it up it means you probably have a bad mobo.  If your memory or cpu was bad and nothing else it would still boot up just without anything on the screen and might give you a series of beeps.  Well I hope i've helped and that you can get this fixed soon.

No power up


Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!
