Hi :
this is my first post here. ok the thing is that I unpluged everthing for the christmas holidays. when I tried to plug everthing back, my dell monitors keeps flashing a box that says Entering power save mode, press any keys. And then it turned black.
I also noticed that neither the keyboard nor the mouse has lights on. I plug the keyboard and mouse in another PC and it worked. the monitor is also working in another PC.

What seems to be the problem??? I have and asus m2nsli deluxe mobo. Is the mobo broken ?? how can this happend over 2 weeks of inactivitiy??

thanks in advance!!!!

the fans running does not mean the computer is putting out enough power to run the video
the opposite is infered that points to the power supply being the problem
turn the computer off
remove the power lead
remove the cmos battery
move the cmos jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3,then back to pins 1 and 2
replace the battery
replug in and boot up

should I plug the pins back too ?? or just leave the pins aside when booting?

My System


put them back to the original settings and then reboot after you re-adjust the bios values, or choose optimal settings or performance.
