Question about Ld Asus P5LD2-VM LGA775/945G/DDR2/Dual Core/A&V&L/MATX Motherboard (MOTAS28)
Hi, I have an asus p5ld2-vm in a small desck top my problem is that when i turn it on nothing happens at all. the green power led on the motherboard comes on and the fans start up but thats it.I have tried starting it up with no devices connected but I am unable to get to bios as the monitor dose not activate.I have tried reseting the cmos but it will not work, I am at a loss could you please help me.
Is it possible that your monitor is bad? or could the cable connection from the monitor to the computer case be in some fashion defective. Look at the cable end that hooks to the computer for bent pins due to improperly plugging the VGA cable into the computer case. If you find such a bent pin, very carefully try to straighten it out with a very small metal tube like some that come in ball point pins. You will need to be very careful doing this as the pins on the VGA connector are very sensitive to breakage if overly pressured. Make sure all power is turned off before attempting this fix. Also, is your Hard drive running, i.e. does the computer seem to be booting up all the way even tho you can't see any display. Normally during boot up, you will see the case Hard drive LED provide a series of displays, indicating that the hard drive is working and booting up. If these displays are occurring, then the next best guess is the monitor or monitor cable. Also you might be able to straighten the VGA cable pins with a very small set of tweezers or needlenose, but please be careful. It is normal to have what appears to be a missing pin when looking at the VGA connector, don't worry about that. What is wrong tho would be a bent pin.
Hope this has been of help
