First boot. Asus P5n32e-sli doesn't POST. - Page 2

post #11 of 55
JBOK,

I have been a few systems with the ASUS A8N32 (different MB I know) and have had a number of times where it just didn't POST at all.

In addition to searching here for your MB and "no POST" you may wish to try the ASUS site and see if they have any reccomendations.

For my particular MB I had to put on stick of RAM in the B1 slot and hold down ALT F2 when powering up. I am not enough of an expert to understand what this did, but it worked for my board. I have been told that different boards use different methods for forcing the POST. Another method I was told was to hold down the insert key.

When you get it to POST check your BIOS to ensure simple stuff is right (date/time) I have been also told that can cause challenges.

Keep at it, I got my to work and have been having great fun.

Jbok, check on the lower left hand corner of your mother board and see if it was made in Taiwan or China. If it was made in China most likely the voltage on the ram is set too high. Do what Charger said and boot it up with just one stick closests to the CPU and go into the bios and lower the voltage.

If it's made in Taiwan...you probably found ram that the board doesn't like.

I know the ram should work just because I'm pretty sure Silviastud used gskills when he had the motherboard (I bought it from him). I'm going to check if my videocard is seated correctly, I might have screwed it in a little much so it might be a little crooked.

I know my monitor is hooked up correctly because when I take the DVI connector out, it tells me to hook it up to something. When it's in, the monitor just acts like the pc is off (the power light blinks).

For some reason the Asus support site isn't coming up for me. Firefox keeps telling me my connection was reset.

My first recommendation is going to take it out of the case. I haven't seen you post that you have done this.

Put the motherboard on a piece of cardboard or a wooden table. Hook up your PSU, GPU, CPU, and one stick of ram, nothing else. Try it with both sticks of ram. Also have you cleared the CMOS? Might do something for you but never know. After you have tried to boot with it out of the case report back.

1. FIRST STEP


1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3 to enable the CLRTC function.
3. Plug in the power cord.
4. Move the jumper cap from pins 2-3 to pins 1-2 (default).
5. Turn ON the computer.
6. Hold down the <DEL> key during the boot process.
7. Load Asus Profile if applicable and reboot.

IF you get it to boot,be fast to set correct voltage in bios(memory most important)
Can frezze very fast if not(same for all stepp)


2. IF 1 STEP DONT WORK NEXT STEP.

Check all cabels(20pin or 24pin), the 4pin 12V cord is also need to be connected)

Turn bios battery 180 then put it inn(yes wrong side inn)
Wait for 30sek.

Then but it inn right side(thanks for tips puzzelman)

Take out memorystick so you have only one.
Both stick in diffrent slot(if you have other memory try that)

Many try can suddenly boot after 30 times

Take out everything that you dont need to boot(only one HD)

TRY AGAIN.
I found this from a poster in the Asus forum. Has anyone tried the battery suggestion? I'm not sure if I'm supposed to try to turn the pc on or not while I do it.

Don't put the battery in upside-down, that won't do anything for you that the Clear CMOS jumper wouldn't.

I guess I'll have to do that. How will I turn the motherboard on though? Also, should I put the motherboard on top of a antistatic bag, or can I just put it directly on the cardboard. I'll probably test everything out on Wednesday since I don't have to work then.

Anti stat bag is fine, I just use a piece of cardboard.
To turn on the mobo, take a small screw driver and touch both power on pins while the PSU is turned on.

Well, I finally put it together outside the case. It made a loud high pitch squeal when I powered on. I didn't know what the hell that was so I powered off quickly. Any ideas of what I was hearing and what I should do now?
