Question about Motherboards
I can't start my motherboard bios, no beep, not bios output (black screen). The power supply is ok (i tried a new one). Can it be the processor ? the memory or the mother board itself ? Thank you for your help. Frederic My motherboard is Asus P5V-VM DH. Purchased July 21, 2007. Just lapsed warranty date. It won't boot up. Not even in BIOS. There is power (power led on), processor fan and casing fan is working. No led light for HD. Tried every other components to other pc to isolate the problem and they all worked (memory, hard disk, power supply). Tried clearing the CMOS. Still nothing. Last thing i saw when it was still working after it hanged was a warning sign that said: "OVERCLOCK FAIL". I dont know what that means. Note for others having the same problem: I am contacting the supplier for Asus in my country, i was told that even the product is past warranty (1 year) from the store where it was purchased; it is STILL under warranty with Asus (3 years). Hopefully they could still repair my motherboard without additional cost. Check your warranty date, maybe if it is not past 3 years from the date of purchase; you could have your motherboard repaired by Asus without cost.
Hi dariel6167, Asus does cover their boards for three years. Your board came out in 2006. The error message you received (Over clocking Failed) is a normal error message when there is an issue with the bios. You can try to flash the bios with a newer bios file. (This may fix the bios). Download the bios file 1001 & bios- utilities from this Asus link.
When contacting Asus please write down the number found on a white sticker located on the pink LPT port. You will need to open your case & look at the LPT port to see the white sticker. If flashing the bios fails you can still buy an updated bios chip through Asus online E-store at this link: http://estore.asus.com/shop/
You do not pay Asus for repairs or replacement, only shipping to Asus is on you.
