    P5B Deluxe board keeps dying?

    Hi, I have just had to return my Asus P5B deluxe for the second time running. On both occasions they lasted about 10 days.

    There are no burn marks, odd smells or warning bleeps. This morning I got up turned the PC on and nothing fans were all working even the hard drives seem to spin up. I just got the message " No signal flashing on the monitor", I even swapped out my vid cards just in case.

    My system was clocked to 3.6Ghz (E6600) using the method on here, and seems stable.

    Can anyone offer a reason as to why this keeps happening? I am starting to thik that maybe my power supply is at fault. I would really appreciate any help you could give, before I put the replacement board back in. My specs are in my sig. Thanks.
    System Specs - OCZ Modstream 520W, P5B Deluxe, 4Gb OCZ 6400, E6600@ 3.6Ghz, Audigy sound card, XFX 8800GTS XXX 640mb graphics card.

    Ooops... I have a OCZ Modstream 520W PSU. How do I test the PSU with a multimeter? I have tried testing a PSU.

    I have just finished my build and have the same problem. All fans are spinning, Asus on the board has lit up but no video. Have taken all but the CPU out but no luck so far.

    Did you ever resolve it?

    I have the following hardware;
    Asus P5B Deluxe
    2GB Geil RAM CL4.
    Enermax Liberty 500W PSU
    Foxtron 8800GTS 320MB OC video card
    E6600

    1 have your cleared CMOS?

    2 What kind of cable do you have connecting your monitor? I use a high quality dual link DVI-D and the display most often does not come up until windows login screen (but sometimes it does....)... If there is a problem in the initial boot I do not see it so it appeared to be a hang until I sussed it - so I connect a DVI-I or an analogue cable to the D-Sub in order to see POST / make/fix BIOS issues.

    I had this with the Commando and the QuadGT.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    Thanks for the reply.

    1) Yes I have cleared CMOS.
    2) My monitor only has A VGA connection so I am using a DVI-VGA adaptor from the card into the standard VGA cable.

    I have not been able to get as far as loading windows, I did try putting the DVD in and it started running something but I was not able to see what.

    Found the answer!

    I came back to post my findings so that anybody else with the same issue has something else to try...

    I just connected the VGA cable to my old CRT and got a screen straight away! It looks like it is the monitor that is causing me such a headache.

    Now on to the next issue of how to get my monitor to recognise the output from the card....

    It was actually the cable and not even the monitor! The old cable worked fine from the VGA port on my ATI 9800 but not from the 8800GTS.

    I have been away for the past week, and have just got back to find a replacement board. This is my third P5B in just over a month. I was told that the last one had post problems and that the vendor has had several problems with the batch of boards they recieved. Hopefully this should be the last time I have to strip and rebuild my system.
