Q: Asus Motherboard expert?

Hi all,
Im am putting together a machine for a friend to use whos machine died and cant afford a new rig right now. im putting together a 939 system for him from spare parts i have and would welcome any input on two motherboards im deciding between. one is a Asus A8N-LA, chipset GeForce 6150 LE
* Southbridge: nForce 430 (southbridge also called MCP51)
and the second is an Asus A8S-X-SE chipset 965-SL. I am wondering if one is superior, chipset,Bios,overclocking, reliability, northbridge etc. I know the A8N-LA has most bios features locked (HP saving me from myself) but if you have any experience with these, or an opinion I would love to here them.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The A8S is an SiS chipset. SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems, incidentally) is absolute garbage. HP can't make an AMD based system worth the powder to blow it to hell. Every HP system built around AMD that I've ever seen or had the displeasure to work with is a dog.

However.. If you're forced to choose strictly between the two, the A8N is a better board. Personally I'd scrap both of them.

I have an ASUS P P D-E Deluxe Mobo and an Intel i - processor I am using them with Crucial PC memory sticks total GB According to the fine print OC for an question expert ASUS overclocking the i - cannot handle sticks sticks at the full mhz When I installed the memory the BIOS I assume downgraded the memory speed to PC All runs well The Mobo has ASUS overclocking question for an OC expert many overclocking options I would like to run the memory at the full mhz There is options you can set the quot AI overclock tuner quot to D O C P this will set everything but the minimum memory speed is mhz This also adjusts the BCLK frequency I don t know what the BCLK is You can also adjust the DRAM frequency directly and this allows mhz Interestingly when you ask it to set the frequency higher the BIOS asks you if you want it to adjust the memory voltage to the proper ASUS overclocking question for an OC expert value for that frequency I knew it had to be v but it was ASUS overclocking question for an OC expert cool that it asked MY question The memory controller is on the CPU chip will just adjusting the frequency allow the CPU to use the extra speed or do i need to do more and overclock the CPU to use the increased memory speed I really don t want to overclock the CPU i just want to use the memory at the speed it was designed for Thanks nbsp

ANYONE out there who has built a PC designed specifically for Home Media usage EG: movies, photos, etc ( not gaming) using a ASUS Intel motherboard 775, CPU E8400, P35, XP PRO, as I'm unsure which board might be the best all rounder.


A:asus motherboard

Have you chosen the computer case you are going to use yet?

For a home media PC, the one defining factor is available "space". (meaning how large of a computer case are you going to use?)

A smaller case may limit you a Micro ATX or smaller MB, low-profile video/audio card or integrated video/audio, low profile CPU heatsink/fan, etc. A smaller case will also mean a lower power PSU which may also limit your choice of other parts.

My original Asus P5ND2-SLI Deluxe doesn't work anymore so I have to replace it. From the beginning I always had issues with the POST and would have to restart from the back of the computer. I'm looking for another MOBO that supports Intel Pentium 4 EE. Looking at other ASUS motherboards I read the same issues with booting. I'm obviously not alone with the previous problems. Does anyone have any other suggestions for good boards that are just solid and consistent? There seems to be a decent ABIT one. I guess I don't want to spend $200 or more on something that's going to give me the same problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think the Asus boards arent completely solid until you buy p5n32 or better, if you pay 100 or so for a board of course not as good quality is put into it. I have the p5n32 sli premium. Its a champ.

A:is there a better motherboard than asus?

It's all a matter of opinion, there is no "better" motherboard. One company's board has several great features and other less great features, missing features etc that other companys board might make up for but yet have it's own flaws also.

You just have to figure out which board has the features that you need and can take advantage of for, also considering the price, compatibility, etc.

Thanks guys,

the P4C800 is a nice board, i would get this if i were building an intel system, but im an amd guy so its all about the A7N8X-E for me. get the P4C800, its will be top end for a while, but its costly. if money is the problem, find a board with the i865PE chipset or equivalent. the IT7-MAX3 is an abit board that is also high end. i think its the IT7, but its the only MAX3 board abit has, take a looksie, because asus board tend to be more expensive, so shop around.

Hi, I happened to have an old motherboard lying around, so I decided to make a computer out of it. The problem that arose was that I attached a 12v molex connector to two wires with another connector which leads to these pins that usually you would attach the case power and HDD Light and Power Light. When I did this I booted up and the board would not start. I know I did something wrong, that I fed it 12v, and possibly might have fired it. Any clue to how I could get it running again???

A:ASUS motherboard help

It could be a motherboard problem. If it has told you that it failed both a VGA test and a RAM test, you can assume that it is not those components at fault. Do you have another motherboard to test in it?

You might also try testing the power supply, but I doubt that is the culprit.

I am having a computer built with the Asus A N SLI Motherboard and have done a lot of research I know that I need to replace the chipset fan with the Zalman cnps B-cu cpu cooler but getting confused about the best hard drive in the to G category and memory to have installed Also any suggestions on the AMD processor The computer tech who is building it recommends the AMD A8N Asus Deluxe Motherboard SLI Athlon but I know that the dual core processors are now being offered Because I will probably keep this new computer for at least years the one that I use now is years old - still chuggs along I try to get a computer with top of the line hardware Also he recommends Windows XP Home Asus A8N SLI Deluxe Motherboard but a lot of people state that the only way to go is Xp Pro I ve been researching all of this for weeks and I m starting to feel that I need a brain transplant I would sincerely appreciate any suggestions or comments nbsp

A:Asus A8N SLI Deluxe Motherboard

All right so you are going with the 939! If you really want THE best processor, go either AMD 64 fx57 or 4800 x2. They will both cost you about a $1000.
If you want to stay around the $350 mark, the 90nm 64 3700 is a good choice.
As far as Hard drives go, reccomend a 7200 rpm 8mb cache SATA, if you go Seagate you can even get native command queing! Two of these in a raid 0,1 and you have a OS that runs like you put it on a 20,000 rpm hard drive.(not quite but it is damn fast and safe.)
I would say go for Pro if you won't upgrade to Longhorn, home if you will upgrade. If you want to be safe and don't mind everything not running perfectly everytime. Go SUSE or Redhat Linux.
RAM, don't go generic. PNY, Kingston are good, I can't remember if this board supportd dual channel or not, but if it does make sure you buy in pairs to get the best performance.
Scatter brained approach to helping, sorry but I hope I helped

Thanks & Regards

A:Asus motherboard b85m-g

I don't know exactly what settings you are referring to, but ASUS has one thing that is different than all other brands. If you need to get into Safe Mode. Most brands are F8, but with ASUS you need to boot and hit F5 and it brings you to a menu and then you hit F8 which goes to Safe Mode. You need to remember that because it is very hard to find on Google or other Search Engines.

i was thinking of upgrading my gf2 mx400 64mb to a geforce mx4000 128mb, however i dont no how to see if it will work on my motherboard,
(my mother board)
(the graphics card)


A:mx4000 on asus Motherboard?

Your mobo has an AGPx4 slot and will accomodate that new card without any problems.
That card is AGPx8/x4/x2 compatible, so no problems.
Check if there is a jumper on the mobo, or a setting in the BIOS, to switch off the onboard graphics. Some mobos switch it off automatically when you insert an AGP card.
Before you put the card in, uninstall the current graphics drivers and load the most basic, windows-own VGA drivers. Then switch off and do the swap.

Quick question... hope somebody can help:

I'm running an Asus P2Bf motherboard in my PC. When I built the machine, I installed a Celeron 400 chip. I'd like to upgrade but I need some advice on what to upgrade to. Asus hints that any compatible PIII chip will work. Any body out there have experience with this board--care to offer an opinion?

Thanks mucho,

Depends on which board revision you have, I would look at the board and find the revision number and email asus

You will need a bios flash to get the latest supported processors.

Hello all,
I had Nt installed and used the upgrade option to win2k. All my devices worked in NT, but now I am in the final stretch of installing 2000 pro server and I keeps on freezing halfway through the hardware detection part.

I removed all devices except CDROM, gen. floppy, and geforce 256 ddr video and Asus K7M board.

i couldn't find K7M under win2k device compatibility, but it worked fine in NT.

Do you think this is a compatibility issue?

ps. I have win98 installed on the last partition and it is working fine, so I don't think it's hardware.

Until then,

I just bought a new ASUS M2N-LR motherboard. It works fine except for one item: The Hard Drive LED doesn't flash or blink hard drive activity.

This seems trivial but at the same time I would like to fix it. Maybe I'm being too much of a geek.

The LED on the computer case works fine. I stretched the cable and connected it to another computer and it worked like it's suppose too.

I already talked with ASUS tech support, and the motherboard was replaced

A:asus motherboard troubleshoot

Hello and welcome,
10GB hard drive is a little small for XP. I would go with a 40GB minimum. You can go to the Asus Support website and download the motherboard utilities after you install XP. It is possible that you might need to update the motherboards bios before you can install XP. You need to make sure that the motherboards bios are set to Failsafe Defaults and take out any network, sound or USB cards before you start installing XP. After the XP install completes, you can reinstall everything

Has anyone out there used the Asus P5G43T-M PRO motherboard and if so, can you comment on it's OC'ing ability.

My Asus MB (M4A89GTD PRO/USB3) is about 5 years old. I have successfully upgraded from Win 7 Pro to Win 10. However, running on Win 10 my PC frequently locks up and has to be re-booted. As a result I down-graded to Win 7 and now all is ok. ASUS does not include this board in the list of Win 10 compatible boards but they state that it might achieve compatibility in the future.
I would like to avoid purchasing a new board and removing/replacing my existing board. If there is no way to make my existing board work with Win 10 could you suggest a good replacement AMD board - I am not a gamer.

It is doing random reboots, and lockups. I thought it was everything I replaced already, but no luck. I have reinstalled XP several times.

Have run many spyware, adware, virus checkers with no results showing anything.

A:XP won't load on new Asus Z87-c motherboard

I can tell you that if you take a hard drive out of one computer with Windows on it and then try to put that into a different computer, it will not work.

I found this thread here:

Based on the error code, it seems that there could be a problem with the RAM. Step number 4 in the answer provides a link to Memtest to download and run on the computer. You should have a built in Memory test that you can access at boot from the advanced boot options screen. You will have to use an f key to get there. The f key differs, so you will have to try them and find out which one it is.

If it is a problem with the RAM, take it out and then put it back in, making sure it is fully seated.

Check the BIOS and disable Boot from other Device from your boot device options. Leave only a floppy (if you have one), hard drive and CD drive.

So it s time to overhaul my comp Ghz processor Asus motherboard SDRAM Today at Fry s I will buy a new processor motherboard DDR RAM and a new ATI graphics card These new parts as well as my old comp will then travel to a professional for assembly Asus P K-E WiFi-AP motherboard motherboard Asus P5K-E WiFi-AP / http www hardwaresecrets com article Intel Core Quad Q Bx processor TWIN X - C DHX DDR Ram Because I am hardware illiterate my question is simply Is this a solid base for a new Asus P5K-E / WiFi-AP motherboard computer When I bring these parts to the professional will he have any problems assembling these three components I don t want to have him tell me that I must make another trip to Fry s to buy the right parts Is Dual Core Asus P5K-E / WiFi-AP motherboard better for this motherboard instead of Quad Core As for the accessories mouse modem sound card drives please ignore them for now Finally I understand that I must also buy a powerbox with some kind of rails for my new PCI-Express graphics card nbsp

A:Asus P5K-E / WiFi-AP motherboard

Solid base: Yes. That is a very nice motherboard.

Trouble with assembly: No. Everything you've chosen so far is 100% compatible.

Dual-core better: Not necessarily. There aren't many applications that take advantage of all 4 cores, so if you can find a better price on a dual-core, you might want to consider it. Otherwise the quad-core is a good choice.

Powerbox: The item you're referring to is called a power supply, or PSU for short. The 'rails' refer to the amount of power capable of being distributed at each voltage type used by the computer.

Here's a good example of a nice PSU at a respectable price that is more than powerful enough for most needs:

Hey guys I would like to upgrade my cpu and I was wondering what speed of for motherboard. asus Cpu speeds cpu s I can go to with my asus meb motherboard the specs on the motherboard are as follows ASUS MEB ACPI BIOS REVISION intel BX AGP set Now the motherboard manual Cpu speeds for asus motherboard. displays info for quot celeron cpu s quot for the motherboard only at Mhz and Mhz for some Cpu speeds for asus motherboard. reaon front side bus and multiplier of for a total of I would like to put a pentium cpu on the motherboard is this possible The manual states that the bus frequency goes up to Mhz and the multiplier goes up to That makes a processor speed of gig I want to aim for a gig pentium processor which is Mhz by or there abouts if you do the math i can potentialy get a cpu speed of gig that is x mhz but i dont wanna fry anything in the process Sent an email to asus but have yet to get any response any info would be appreciated greatly thanks nbsp

A:Cpu speeds for asus motherboard.

forget the 1.2 Ghz, the FSB's are asynchronous with the AGP and PCI (so you will overclock them massivly at fsb 150, and you don't want to do that knowing the PCI and AGP cards won't handle it).

The FSB 100 is possible and maybe some slight numbers above (up to 110 maybe).

I think a BX chipset can still handle a PIII 800 (and a lill' more if you up the FSB slightly).

I tried to update the bios using ASUS EZ Flash update, followed user manual to download update to floppy, it read floppy, started erasing, and then failed to flash, then it did nothing. I tried to recover the bios using crashfree bios 2, i inserted my motherboard cd nothing happens, my monitor has no power from motherboard, screen is black. Can anyone help me i am a newbie, probably should not have done this.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

As far as I am aware there are only two possible solutions to your problem.

1 Ask the manufacturer of your mobo if they would be willing to supply you with a new bios chip.

2 Get a new mobo.

I`m sorry that I can`t give you any good news but there it is.

Regards and good luck Howard

A:16 GBs of RAM not working on ASUS motherboard

Hello Randomrocket. Welcome to the forum.

I assume you have already checked to be sure all RAM you are trying to use is the same specs as the current RAM, most importantly the voltage spec, but also unbuffered, and the timings should be the same or very close.

That said, the first thing you need to determine is whether it is a bad stick of RAM or a bad RAM socket or a power problem.

The first thing to do is remove the old working RAM and add one stick of new RAM into the first blue slot (A1) and test. Test each new stick in A1.

If that works then install the 2 new sticks in the same locations as the old sticks (the 2 blue slots - A1&B1) and test.

Then, with the two new sticks still in A1 & B1, add one stick of the old RAM into the third slot (black - A2) and test. Then the second old stick in the last slot (black - B2).

Report back what you find.

Hello I probably have absolutely no idea of what I'm doing with motherboard ASUS Win7 for P5K my computer and I've been struggling for quite a long time the sound card perhaps isn't installed there's no sound coming out so I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask I ASUS P5K motherboard for Win7 have ASUS P K motherboard socket and I've installed Win I've read on this forum that if I have ASUS P5K motherboard for Win7 the installation CD I could setup the vista version The problem is for the life of me I can't find that CD I've tried to download something on the ASUS website but I'm just so confused as to what I should be downloading I somehow got to a page having a list of downloads available for P K model but what next am I supposed to download every one of the files on the list so there is no specific quot setup exe quot file sorta thing I would greatly appreciate any help I'm shamefully new to this Thanks a bunch

A:ASUS P5K motherboard for Win7 also want to install Windows Vista? You will need a Windows Vista installation DVD and applicable product key for activation to cover that

Alright...I looked at ASUS and no downloads were found for Windows 7 and your P5k...but this doesn't mean the end

If you are running Windows 7 x86 (32-bit)...install the Vista drivers (they normally work) here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

If you are running Windows 7 x64 (64-bit)...install the Vista drivers (they normally work) here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

EDIT: Just saw that those two links go to the same on one and choose either Vista x86 or Vista x64

Do you have the PDF manual from the ASUS website?
If get it here:
On page 43 it shows the location of the connection. Polarity of the switches doesn't matter but for the LED's it does; white wires are "-". All the connections should be straight forward except for the SLP which goes to the SMI connection, and the keyboard connection would not be used.

If you have front audio ports here's how to connect them:
