Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

PC wont boot, not even to bios

3 GHz cpu, 2GB ram.
I have tested the cpu in another m"board and it works okay.
I have tried replacing the ram, trying another PSU.
I am thinking the M'board is shot, but i have a mate with 2 ASUS P4S800-MX boards and he has the same problem. Coincidence or what?

Maybe the mobo is shot for u and he has his PSU shot.......Check for any burnt smells from the mobo. See if the cable from the PSU is properly connected to the mobo. Try removing all drives like graphics cards, RAMS one by one and see if it works.

First of all, check if there are any inflated capacitors, if there is even one- ditch MBO, other capacitors will soon follow. If no inflated capacitors proceed with these diagnostic steps: 1/ disconnect all peripherials (DVD, HDD, card reader...), leave only MBO, PSU and RAM (and CPU of course); if nothing happens 2/remove CMOS battery (CR2032) for 20-30 sec with power cord disconected from computer, that will reset BIOS; 3/ take out RAM sticks, then, if you have more than one stick, try with each stick separately (it might be faulty RAM); 4/power on MBO without any RAM-if speaker is present it should give BEEP signals; 5/ try with different PSU, many power supplies are faulty even when they do give power to MBO.
If nothing of above does not help than you have faulty MBO, because CPUs are so rare to fail that in my 10 years of experience in PC service I had 3-4 fried CPU-s, and even that was because costumer tried to clean PC, removed CPU cooler and than incorrectly placed it back or didn't put thermal paste afterwards. asrock-g31m-s-no-display-booting-yuc33qzjuwfqgyyin4u45syc-4-0.jpg

try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

Pc will not post all lights including disk activity lights are on


The best way to test which component is causing the issue is to strip down you mobo to just the CPU. Then try and boot. If it boots, you know the CPU is okay. Start adding components until you reach the point where it won't boot. The last item added will be the item that is not functioning. If it won't boot with just the CPU, and all of your jumpers are correct, then your mobo is your problem.

Intel Desktop Board D945GNTLKR did not boot


Try choosing the 'Exit Without Saving' option in the BIOS menu. If this kicks you to the boot media search, then 99.99% the BIOS is corupt. If not, try to replace the CPU cooler (don't forget to apply the thermal grease).

You could try reseting the Bios settings using the jumper of the motherboard after installing the new Rams. Anyways ,its working, so don't do that now :P .

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

PC Freezing !


Update BIOS to P25 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=948&DwnldID=10130&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

Reset BIOS to default settings.

Check CPU Temperature, Prescott CPUs run hot.

If board is under 3 years old and was a retail box package, it will be under warranty, contact Intel.

MSI P6NGM won't BOOT


You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!
