Asus P5kpl-cm motherboard
September 8, 2009 at 00:27:16
Specs: Windows XP
I got a new asus p5kpl-cm motherboard, put in a P4 3.06ghz processor, put the hard drive and dvd rom.
Put a new 1GB RAM, but when i turn it on there is no display, no beep and the light on the motherboard is on, cpu fan is ok... what could be the problem??

i took out everything, just the cpu now but still same problem. I suppose when RAM is not there, there shud be a series of beeps. I have put the same CPU on a different gigabyte motherboard, with only the CPU, it gives beeps. I had bought 2 p5kpl-cm, tried the other one with same CPU, same problem..?? is it because im using a 3.06ghz processor.?? Book manual says it supports P4... Please need help...

Did you test on a bench test as you went along or did you just bung it all together in a case ??

i tried resetting the cmos battery, checked the power connectors and put a different RAM also, is there any other jumper setting on a new p5kpl-cm motherboard that i dont know off that should be removed.
I also put a dual core processor, from a working machine but same problem, lights on the board, fan wrking, hard drive i can feel its moving inside... but no beep, no POST and no display

You should ALWAYS benchtest your hardware. It's pointless to put everything in the case if it doesn't work & if you put it in the case without testing it first, you don't know if it''s a hardware problem or an assembly problem.

Also, you should always check the motherboard CPU support list.

You are correct in saying that you should get error beeps with only the CPU connected on the mother board and no RAM.

If the CPU is supported on that motherboard. I would say that you have either a power supply or motherboard problem.

But are all the motherboard standoffs in the right place?

removed the cpu, put it in another machine it works fine.
I have read the motherboard specs, it supports P4 processors
I am using 3.06ghz P4 in asus p5kpl-cm.
But how can the same problem happen to two new motherboards. I'll try changing the power supply...i had done that before, will try again..

Are you connecting an auxillary power connector? Probably a square 4 pin connector but could be larger.

The board may support the chip with the correct BISO version. Your version may be older. Sometimes running with an older BIOS will allow the chip to boot but won't configure correctly. Other times you may get no boot.

If you have other hardware available you could try a slower compatible chip in the board.

No need to remove the battery to clear the CMOS.
