crap! Why won't it work. The test result sheet they gave told me to check the add-on cards, RAM, CPU, etc., all of which I have done, and all of which are in perfect working condition. and i need my computer to work... :dead: if anyone can help me... Source

If one of them are not lined up with a hole on your motherboard, then that means they could be touching some solder leads together and that could cause some problems. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/serious-asus-a7n8x-problem.7719/
Can't find your answer ? I tried alternate Power Supply and it worked. then computer shut down. http://tinyurl.com/3sapr2b i5 3570K 4.6GHz http://snipurl.com/26r3cot Win7-8 Pro 64bit Want to enjoy less advertisements and more features?

Make sure you didn't put one of them brass standoff screws in the wrong place.

I am almost certain that my DDR400 is bad, because whenever i have that on the system, it boots into windows with a blue screen, and sometimes it won't even boots.. According to the manual, as long as i stay above or equal to the CPU's FSB, i should be fine on the menory. Originally I had the Maxtor 160gb setup as my boot drive (master), and the Seagate is the slave drive. Go to Bios and have to change sometimes the AGP card back to 128 meg ram and to select the AGP card in bios, saved and computer booted up.
Could a hard drive thats going bad also cause a computer to do this, which i figure it would only stop from being read. More about the author Thanks. Lockups, CPU clocking problems, games and benchmarks would cause reboots, even IE would shut down. I've also ran the Maxtools full read scan and the Seagate Seatools complete scan and both drives check out OK....
Greets,Koen<<<<< Koen, do you have 3200 memory? this contact form This is underclocking, right? (Ok, this is the first time I assemble my own PC, I might be wrong) Is there no other way to get some more juice out of Same m/board but two Maxtor 250gb Diamondmax 10. I have noticed that it happens when its doing nothing or sometimes when I move the mouse.
Greets, Koen p.s.: Oh yes, thanks for the many good suggestions on this forum! The A7N8X with XP3000 ran fine with the 4200 (4X). Book your tickets now and visit Synology. have a peek here cgloba Junior Member Joined: Aug 13, 2005 Messages: 2 Likes Received: 0 OK....this one has me stumped.
I think it's an incompatibility issue, and this is the last thing I have to check. I have an AGP4x Biostar GeForce 4MX 440Se graphics card, and on my last mobo, it worked just fine, and with this Asus mobo, it just doesn't work fine! I will say that after a few boots it will eventually load windows and then everything is fine. #6 junkyardDawg, Aug 21, 2005 Shuxclams Diamond Member Joined: Oct 10, 1999
Tried on Windows 98, Me, XP Home and XP Pro O.S's, and got the samee error.

It also happens sometimes when it tries to load windows xp.
I mixed my RAM with a DDR333 so i get 512Mb. The case may have gotten bumped and the motherboard is now rubbing against metal. Jan 12, 2005 #5 (You must log in or sign up to reply here.) Show Ignored Content Topic Status: Not open for further replies. Check This Out there is cpu overheating protection built into the mobo, perhaps the cpu temp sensor is damaged?
Once you turn the board on, something metal could be shorting it out. Make sure the motherboard isn't touching any metal from the case.You were right! Sep 16, 2003 #2 conradguerrero TS Rookie Posts: 310 what are the amps supplied by the atx psu on the +5VSB it should be at least 1 A also the mobo Thanks.
Thanks for any help. Check my settings above and some others here. Newer Than: Search this thread only Search this forum only Display results as threads More... This setting produced a stable system but lower benchmarks on my machine.
I am using dual PC3200 sticks of 256 each, and a XP2400+ (overclocked from 2GHz to 2340MHz) With better cooling I have no doubt I could hit 2500MHz.My ONLY problem has It's cooler master and the light inside it lights up for a second and then goes out... So I called Asus, and they assured me it was a CPU problem, so I RMAd the Athlon XP. DVI-I or DVI-D?
or read our Welcome Guide to learn how to use this site. Make your CPU and HSF is seated correctly and you have a very thin layer of good thermal paste, and not so much as to short out the contacts on top I'm thinking it's a Video card accessing incompatible memory. They are installed in a Thermaltake Xaser III series case with two 80mm fans blowing right on them....so no problems there.
