No display on the screen...
Hi, I am an A8N-SLI Deluxe user.
AMD 3000, 1GB Ram, 6800GT, 1 Raid 0 (260gb), 500W, SB.
I run heavy duty programs all the time and had no problems at all untill now. My computer's screen just went off and restarted (without bluescreen).
When it restarted, my computer beeped about 5~6 times consecutively, and I discovered that the chipset fan was not working at all. It seems though the system neverthelss goes into Windows... just no screen display at all!!!
Ever since, I've tried to reboot the system many times and still beeps and no screen display...
I've done some researches on the internet and it could be the Q-Fan thingo, so I tried to clear the CMOS properly (as the manual says + this website..) and restart my computer, yet the problem seems to still exist. I've cleared the CMOS according to the instructions properly many times but nothing has changed yet. Tried different PSU and Monitor, but the problem still exists...
Oh... plus, I forgot to mention. My RAID configuration is done by the onboard controller that came with ASUS-SLI Deluxe, as RAID 0.
If I unavoidably have to replace the motherbother to new one, does that mean that I will lose my data in RAID 0, because new controller will have to reconfigure the RAID setting? Or is there anyway that I can backup the data in RAID 0 right now, prior to changing into new motherboard?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
