    Hey, im having problems and was woundering if someone could help me.

    After my mobo died i bought this 1

    Asus P5ND2 SLi nForce4 SLi (LGA775) PCI-Express Motherboard

    When i power up all the fans come on and lights, nothing comes on the screen and all i get is a long beep, and then it turns its self off. Im running;
    Intel Pentium 4 650 "LGA775 Prescott" 3.4GHz
    XFX GeForce 7800GT Extreme LED Edition 256MB GDDR3
    Geil 1 gb PC5300 DDR2 RAM
    Hiper Type R 580W PSU

    I have reset the CMOS Jumpers and tryed moving the ram into different slots and booting up with 1 stick in but still no luck. Could any one help me with this problem :)

    Well it did bascally what it does now, so i could have not been the mobo :O


    My old mobo worked fine, untill i bought the 7800, i had no output on the screen. and then the pc would just shut down in about 10 secs.

    So i bought the new one. With the 7800 in i get a long beep, b4 it shuts off. So i put my old 6600 in, and it boots up fine all the fans come on, comes on the screen, and i get the beep. Then suddenly, the power cuts out, Its a brand new psu, so i dont think it could be that.

    Im just really stumped, i paid alot of money for it, and i cant use it. Im just hoping that i can get it running.

    Any help would be most greatfull :D

    Could be way off track, but have you considered if the power from the house is good/clean enough. You could try getting an extension board that eradicates spikes in the power supply for around a tenner

    Well i turned it on this morning, and it lasted about 2 mins, so i had time to check the cpu temp, It was on 90. So im guessing the heat sync is broken, off to get a new 1 now, and hope it fixes :D
