I have read about alot of people having problems with the Motherboard and I'm wondering if anybody can help me with this.

I have a

Asus P4C800 Deluxe
CPU: 2.6 Ghz 800 fsb
30 Gb hard drive
512 MB Ram
ATI Radeon 9800

I always manage to start it up but it should start up without me having to mess with.
I start it up after I take the side of the tower and then I put a fan to it and unplug the powre cord for about 20 seconds. I leave the side of the tower off and start it up. If you try that a couple times it always will start up. At least it does with me. When it does start up I just put the side back on and I don't have any problems any more. But when I shut it back off and start it back up I have to do it all over again. Asus should at least give a solution to this problem.

Welcome to the forums etmconely...............:D

It sounds like something is not connected properly. Or the power supply isn't giving it enough of juice to get it fired up.

Simplest fix first ....

Isthe MB mounted properly? Check to see that each mounting point has a post - either screw-in or plastic. Possible short, maybe.

i have exactly the same problem, most of the time the system just doesnt boot up...fans show the only sign of life.

With a bit of messing about i can get the thing to boot, and once running it is perfect, stable even when overclocked to 3.1G.

I have swapped my enermax 300w for a Antec 480W and makes no difference.
I have reset the Cmos, updated Bios and reset again, changed all settings and jumpers, disconnected all drives, removed the memory, changed video card - all have no effect.
There is no POST, and no beeps.

There is no loose connections as u can move wires etc while it is running and all is ok.

i have concluded that the mainboard is faulty so i am trying to get refund or replacement.
