might as well check your temps if stable enough to do so

What is HWMonitor

HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems

main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program

handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most

Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die

core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T,

and video card GPU temperature.

Well in that case, to the best of my knowledge, I'm not sure it (TIM) has been replaced. However, it's been into a repair shop before and they've said they don't think it's an overheating problem.

Changed the CMOS battery - no change. Again, it seems that by changing the RAM that is installed, the machine boots up properly one time... then fails to the next! What next?!?

sorry about getting back a bit late today with this

ok when you say you boot properly you getting into Windows and running OK ? and shutting  down and then on the next boot it fails right

on the next boot that fails to have the 'beep' and fans running and can you get into the bios ?   is it dead and nothing on the 'next boot' ?

does it begin to load and BSOD on the next boot if it is a BSOD take a pic with your camera and post it like the monitor temps earlier or here just upload to your files

also if you have any beeps  note the short-longs if possible for you this may help in the troubleshoot

are you familiar with memtest ? http://www.memtest.org/

to download and burn the .iso to cd change the boot priority to boot cd 1st to test ?

hope to get enough here to get you going or solve

hang in there Clemmenza

Thanks: 2 times

I don't think he's even getting through 'POST' or even getting that lovely little 'post' beep the second time around.

It's a weird-ass problem to have. Replacing the memory, even the exact same memory, causes it to 'reset' it's problem again and again. At this point I would try, during one of those good boots, to flash it back to the previous BIOS since this all started with a BIOS flash.

Let us know how that goes. (I don't think that the PSU is good. If it is, then the MainBoard is failing)

I do not think he mentioned a bios flash at all and agree I do not think he has a solid 'beep' the second time...hopefully we can get a Bios re flash with default settings .a bit ' wonky' ehh ?

*** edit might as well look up the mobo and bios flash for him with asus board >>Clemmenza is UK so +-5 / 6 time zone dif.pending how you look at it.

It all honesty it sounds like the mainboard is having a problem with an intermittent memory controller and the only fix for that is to replace the mainboard which can be expensive and time consuming.

sure looks like the mainboard after the 'borrowed' PSU and hope that he did pay to much $$ in the repair shop prior to stopping in

that may have been good $$ put to good use on another board .he mentioned it being a custom build ? and asked about TIM ?

if he has to replace the mainboard [likely]

Clemmenza  will have troubleshoot & built his rig himself with plenty of help around here [:)]

Sorry for the late reply, I've been a bit busy!

Whn you say mainboard, do you mean the motherboard? Sorry if that's a dumb question!

Basically, every time it restarts we get no kind of beep, no access to the BIOS, no nothing.

NB. have just tried unplugging the power supply to the video card - same thing, nothing happens. I'm guessing this may rule out the PSU?

It's just a matter of terminology

yes we are referring to the mainboard  motherboard mobo the Asus P5K-E Rev 1.xx board that you have .

in the above posts we have been referring to a Bios refllash before considering your mainboard to be completely dead.

there are others that have experienced the same problems that you have with this board

it is very important to have the exact Asus mainboard number and the exact Bios .

there is also info in the Asus forums with P5K-E
