  • Asus FM1 system not booting.

    Bought a cheapish faulty Asus Tower.

    Its an AMD FM1 system with an A4-3420.

    Discovered on issue was the Cmos reset jumper is part of a 6 pin pin grid with one of the 5VSB.

    It wasn't making any beeps even with the ram removed.

    The previous owner had the jumpers across the two connectors rather than along them.

    Corrected this but it still doesn't boot, even though it does now beep if the ram is removed.

    I have refitted the processor and tried different ram,

    Should I assume that the board is infact dead?

    On another note, wow aren't FM1 boards expensive!
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional
