Can't start bios

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.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5V-VM%20DH&SLanguage=en-us
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.

Good luck!
Mike

Asus mb wl300 amd 64 4000+ won't boot to bios.


To make sure it isn't anything else, pull all cards, and drive cables from the board so the only thing left connected is the power connectors to the motherboard, the speaker, and the power button. Pull all the ram cards.

Now power up the computer. If you hear a series of beeps then the computer recognizes there is no ram on the board. At this point I would take the power supply out and have it tested. If you do not hear a series of beeps I would still have the power supply tested as it could be the 12v is fine but the 5 and 3.3 volt side is bad.

If power supply tests good then I would replace both the motherboard and processor. You take a risk of burning a new processor if it's the motherboard causing the problems.

I can't see the BIOS screen and this didn't check CMOS. i can't hear no beep.


Reverse the two-pins connecting the PC Speaker to the motherboard.
This can make any "beep" much louder.

Try a different power-supply, to ensure that your current power-supply is NOT the problem.

Remove the RAM and the video-card, then start it up.
It *should* "beep" to complain about the lack of RAM and the lack of video. If not, and the power-supply is OK, then the motherboard has its own problems.

No Beep Sound and Screen while starting the system


It could be power supply, processor or the motherboard.
Try first with the power supply. Then try changing the processor.
I guess that you have problems with the processor.

Black screen


Ensure that the power button is pressed and the monitor is plugged in correctly. If ok, then the installation was stopped while installing your video drivers. If possible use another monitor to re-load the xp operating system until completed. Once the video monitor drivers are loaded the monitor will work again. Let me know if you have any questions.

My motherboard BIOS is not starting


look for the CLRCMOS or CLR or JBAT1 terminals. These are the cmos settings and may need to be cleared, so refer to your motherboard manual for which one you have. Although what has probably happened is that when the PSU blew it may well have shorted the cmos chip which cannot be repaired, or damaged the graphics.

No Power to PC


When your pc starts to boot up do you get two beeps one then another, although not two together, if not and only one beep occurs this could mean a memory problem, two beeps together normally a cmos bios problem.(Only part you've not changed was your ram) Do you get as far as the bios screen?, if so look for a line in advanced cmos settings, saying 'halt on all errors' dissable this and sometimes on boot up the problem will show itself in the initial dos screen. Keep diggin.
