i have looked at other postings and have seen where others have had the same proublems have tryed every thing i have seen or read but it still just starts and before it starts it just stops then tryes to start just keeps that up have it on desk with power supply, video card, keybord, any help would be very nice chuck
More aboutdeluxe post cycles
Did it used to work properly (POST) and now it doesn't...or is this a fresh build and it won't POST?
Let me get my crystal ball and try to sense what hardware you have, then maybe I can help you. LOOOL. Get a clue buddy.
Are you like one of those pretty evil ladies like in the movies?
i am sorry i am new at this this is a new motherboard i have never got it to post or boot up what ever is the right thing to ask the board is on a box out side of the case with only the power supply, one gig DDR2 800 stick ram and video card, ( e-GeForce 7300 Gs DDR@ 256MB PCI-e ) the motherboard is a ASUS P5k Deluxe /WiFi-AP when i try to start it it turns on runs for about 3 seconds then just keeps cycling on and off i just put new thermal compound on the heat sink didnt change still no post. and like i have built guite a few systems in my day but this is the first time i have ever tryed to use a forem like this Thank You For nny help you can give me
Are you sure you have all the power connectors connected to the motherboard, including 4/8-pin power?
Yes all connections are connected on this board if not it wont even try to start i was looking at other forum`s and other peouple have had the same proublem but havent found a Fix yet. took it to a computer repair shop but they wount even look at it for less than 150.00 and that is not even a guarentee that they can fix it i am sure ther should be some simple thing that i can do ( I HOPE ) Thanks again
Okay, post your full specs so we can get to business of helping you.
ok i hope this is what you are asking it is a ASUS P5K Deluxe intel LGA775 Platform intel P35 chipset intal Pentium 4 processor Dual-channel DDR2 800 MHz ram Heat Pipe & Stack Cool 2 with ( e-GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E ) Video Card is that what you need?
Well, we really need the:
CPU (exact type, if possible) Cooling type (not necessarily, but just for grins) RAM (manufacturer, model & speed (ie PC6400) video card hard drives and anything else you've got plugged in or hanging off your system
OK the cpu is intel M C 04 Pentium 4 630 SL729 300 GHZ/2m/800/04A the RAM PATRIOT PSD21G8002 1GB PC2-6400 CL5 video card is e-GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E no hard drive pluged in at the moment That is all i have now i am still trying to just trying to get it up to the bios. it is sitting on a card board box.
oh also the cooling fan is intel That came with the CPU
Might be a stupid question but did you by chance overlook plugging in the power supply to the video card? Did you try posting with only one stick of ram?
No the video card has a fan on it and the moniter is pluged into the card and yes i did try one stick ram even switched them one at a time but thanks it still just keeps cycleing on for about 3 sec then stops then back on and so forth.
Are you absolutely sure you have the reset switch connected the right way?
Try removing the CPU, place it in a pot of boiling lead and say goodbye... Im relatively sure (as and stake my life savings on it) That that Pentium 4 isn't 300GHz :P
Anyway... Check the back of your mobo for any shorts. Is the Mobo on Cardboard or some other non-conductor/ organic based compound or is it just sitting on the kitchen bench?
first of all the reset switch is not even connected the motherboard is setting on a BOX MADE OF REGULAR CARDBOARD and my cpu is a Pentium 4 3.00Hz SORRY i Missed the . my mistake AND I DONT HAVE ANY BOILING LEAD
3 GHz, jk, I knew it wasn't. The boiling lead was reference to a movie... I couldnt think of its title and I really liked it, so I was hoping someone would go. "Ah thats from ..." But nevermind
Have you checked your CPUs fan connector (around the right way etc.)? If you have a second PSU use that and see if it works.
Try disconnecting as many components as possible (i.e. secondary GPU (I think mobo has onboard), leave only 1 stick of RAM etc.)
CPU fan connector is on right if it wasent it would not even start at all dont have a second PSU to use i dont have any thing as stated above except power supply video card and one stick of ram any MORE HELP WOULD BE NICE
If there is any one else out there that would have any ideas on this proublem would be Happy to here from you
Try to boot without the cpu, ram and video card. The board should now beep reporting the missing components. If not the problem is in psu or mb, try another mb with that psu/ try another psu with that mb.
