Asus Motherboard issues.

  1. Okay I have a
    Asus P5LD2 Deluxe Wifi-TV Socket 775 Motherboard
    Intel Pentium D 915 2.8Ghz 800FSB Socket 775
    Corsair XMS2 TWINX 1024MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz (2X512)

    XFX GeForce 7600 GS 256MB PCIe w/Dual DVI
    And an Ultra Grid MID ATX Case with a 700w mod PSU


    my problem is ha! it will boot w/ all LEDs, no beeps, running Hd and fans.
    but no monitor and then it will turn it'self off... Im wondering if the memory I have is not compatible?
    I dont know why cos it's 667mhz DDR2 DualChannel that the mobo specs said it would support...I know 9 times out of ten the motherboards just shorting
    out on the case but I dont think thats the prob...

    but had one question... if the cpu fan is not plugged into the mobo could this
    cause an error? cos I have a test fan setup that I use that is not hooked into the mobo for easy access when overclocking and checking heat ratio

    but is that what's causing it to turn it'self off?

    help would be greatly appreciated !!!

    Do this right away.Install asus Probe.It's on the cd or a download.
    Did you install the cd extras.You need the AGP installed.
    I hope you have a cd and a manual,or dl one.

    Your BIOS is incompatible with the Pentium D.

    I'll just about bet your NEW ASUS p5ld2e has bios 206 or so from 2005 and does not recognise the Pentium D.

    This is a very common problem recently.

    You need a P4 or a celeron to start your machine.

    Then you need to do a bios update. Currently it is 705. Instructions how to do the bios reflash are at the ASUS website.

    Then you can install the Pentium D.
