  • Xenarc displays correct, then "power off"

    Okay, let me just list some quick specs:
    - Xenarc 800TSV
    - ASUS A7N8X/400 with Athlon XP-M 2500+ (45W) Barton 266MHz FSB Socket A Processor
    - and Opus 150

    System has been performing flawlessly for over a year and love it. Get into the Jeep the other day and now, it won't seem to post. Disconnected all peripherials so its just the mobo and opus booting up. Screen and fans fire up like normal..."PC" shows up in the upper left with correct lighting and everything....the after 5 seconds or so it says "Power off" on the screen and the screen backlight shuts off and the green light just blinks. If I hit the brightness button, it will do its normal "Bright" in the upper left then "Power off" shows up again.
    Thinking it was the onboard video taking a dive, I plugged in a AGP video card that I know works and it does the same exact thing again.
    What am I missing? Is the motherboard shot???

    it's likely your screen instead of the video card/mobo.
    Did you try hookup a different monitor?

      does that board have an option for another video card or video out like svideo or composite

      if so it may be defualting to that monitor

      do you see post then it goes blank cause thats what sometimes happens to me
      take a few minutes and install winvnc its a remote destop utility its saved my *** a few times for instance when i couldnt boot u just tunnelled in thru vnc and reset the video card to output to vga (analog) and not the TV

        Update:
        Swapped out the ASUS motherboard and put a P4 motherboard into the Jeep. Put a AGP video card in, same problem. Took the AGP out, put a brand new PCI video card in, same problem. I can cycle through the AV1, AV2, etc. and get the menus to show up, but non of the options has anything to do with it. Im running out of ideas! I have a new ASUS A7N8X coming in the mail in a couple days, but I fear that I will have the same problem of "Power Off" showing up. Just ****es me off because I can't even get it to show POST on two motherboards. Been running flawlessly for 14+ months!
        Anything else I can try? BTW, when I have been testing it, the motherboard was stripped bare to one stick of memory and no peripherials.

          Before you waste you time/money trying to swap out mobo/video card after one another, bring that big *** CRT you have on your desk and check and make sure that the video card out put is good.
          I am very sure that your Xernac is screw up. There is no way that all mobo/video card you try are broken.

              UPDATE:
              Got another board in the mail (same ASUS one) and it works perfectly! Really odd since the Intel P4PE board is perfectly fine. It was almost like missing my first born being without a carputer for about two weeks!
