ASUS A7V8X - failure to start

By egsiegmund ·
I have an AMD XP 1700+, 2 X 256meg DDR's, PCI video board and WD hard drive. After turning on power a green light on the Mother board lights then after pressing front panel power switch the fans start the green light on the front panel if case lights and 3 seconds later the fans stop but the lights remain lit.No message appears on screen nor any beeps.

CMOS jumper

by TheChas In reply to ASUS A7V8X - failure to ...

First, you usually get more and quicker responses to technical questions if you post them in the Technical Q&A section.

The most likely cause of the behavior your system has is that the reset CMOS jumper is in the reset position.

If not, go through the CMOS reset procedure.

I don't know about the A7V8X, but on the older A7V series motherboards, they work best if you manually set the CPU FSB and multiplier in BIOS settings.

I often have to fully clear power to get that critical firstboot so that I can set the CPU speed.

Unplug the power supply, and remove the CMOS battery for at least 1/2 hour.
Connect power and boot up.
Enter BIOS settings, and manually set the CPU speed.
Save settings, and exit.

Replace the CMOS battery before shutting the system down.
