A:Asus mobo bios problem

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I seem to remember some Asus mobo`s were faked, although I can`t remember when this was or what models were affected. whether this is the source of your problem I don`t know.

Run the free Everest programme from HERE and see what details it gives you for your mobo. Then, check the results with the Asus site.

The only other thing I can suggest is you RMA the board.

I am looking at ASUS' support, and am planning to flash my BIOS to an updated version, as I have exhausted all other attempts at stabilizing my system.

The instructions tell me to make a boot floppy. As there is no logical way for me to do this, as my board does not have a floppy cable present, this proves impossible. Anyone flashed the BIOS on an ASUS M4 series? Tips?

Have a look Here and see if the info helps

It's relating to creating a boot cd instead of using a floppy

I have the P4C800-E Deluxe modo and Kingston(x2) DDR400 Duel channel memory set-up. The problem is that when I over clock the processor I loose the 400MHz and it goes to 160Mhz, but i can overclock successfully. If I do not overclock, I can have my memory at 400MHz. So what gives? Why can I not overclock and have my memory at 400MHz?

A:Overclocking in BIOS using ASUS mobo

I think that ASUS has an automatic thing that does that automatically if it is not overclocked properly.. it's really annoying.

I recently updated my mobo's bios and with the update I now see this "press F4 to use ACC". I have an AMD Phenom II X4 940 BE CPU. Is there any benefit to using this new function that ASUS is offering with my quad core.

A:Asus mobo bios update

It looks like ACC is a utility for unlocking AMD CPU hidden cores for 'overclocking'.

So if you are into that kind of thing it may be a useful tool.

Here is the site for upgrading the BIOS on it AFUDOS (First Link)
I don't fully understand what the site says. The reasons I need to upgrade is to support the CPU it doesn't support with factory installed BIOS.

I would really like someone would fully explain this.

Thank you very much !!!!

I downloaded Bios utility and received error "Does not support this operating system: WNT_.1H_MCE"

Can someone please inform me is this an issue that occurs only when any kind of overclocking is done.
This includes enabling XMP profiles of RAM that has XMP feature.
In other words is there anybody out there who has had frozen clock issue where no overclocking was done.

I just built a custom PC and have a problem. I have an Asus P5LD2 Deluxe-Wifi mobo, and when I tried to book all of the fans come on, but no Boot or POST. I had a Thermaltake Pure power 600 watt PSU and at first I thought it was the problem, so I bought a new one. It now does the same thing, as before. I tested the power supply and now it shows all of the voltages as working, except the 5v?

I read a similar post and someone said it may be the BIOS revision will not detect the Core 2 Duo processor I have. Is this true? Please help..

A:Asus P5LD2 Deluxe mobo won't post or bios beep

I believe that the X1600 pro only needs the power connection for the AGP version. Yours is a PCIe-16x version so the power connection (I believe) is not needed. If it is needed, there would be a 4pin molex jack on the top right side of the card (opposite from the side that mounts to your case).

As for what bios supports your CPU, it depends on which revision your CPU is. Revision B1 is supported by bios version 0415 or newer. But revision C1 was not supported until bios version 0603.

I don't understand the bios number you have provided enough to tell if it means your board has been updated, perhaps someone else can help out with that (I am at work now). If your CPU is the C1 revision, then an out of date bios would explain things.

By the way, are you sure your board is not shorting out on the case? (You used the riser pins)?

Also, what make is your PSU and how many watts is it rated at?

What speed/make ram are you using?

A:BIOS problem ASUS K8V SE De Luxe MOBO, Athlon 64, 3400+

In my waiting for possible good suggestion I have now a couple of times performed the following, as suggested in the ASUS-manual, section 2.6 in order to erase the RTC RAM:
Turned off the computer and unplugged the power cord
Removed the battery
Moved the jumper from pos. 1-2 to 2-3 for 10 sec. and then back again
Replaced the battery
Plugged the power cord and turned on the computer
Held down the "Del-Key" and few otheralternative key-combinations during boot,

but....the drives are still not read, thus the BIOS default settings could not be performed.

Now the AMI-screen says:
"CMOS Setttings wrong
CMOS Date/Time not set
Press F1, respectively F2"

Apparently the wordings are now slightly different, see above, however, the negative result the same!

Still looking forward to good advices, maybe from the moderators, if not any others can help...thanks. Oeksen 37+

I replaced the mobo on my Dell 5510. Purchased from Dell. Sticker on mobo says BIOS ver A05. About every other day I get blue screen and physical dump of memory. My system info says my BIOS ver is A07. How do I go about changing BIOS? Is it as simple as pulling battery for 15 seconds? Some have offered this suggestion but I get a little worried at "friends" advice.

A:Replaced MOBO on Dell 5510 BIOS sticker on MOBO says A05, system in still has BIOS of A07

Removing the battery won't change the BIOS version. You need to download the version you require from the Dell site. From Windows you "flash" the BIOS. Take your time preparing for this. If anything goes wrong you will wreck your motherboard.

A:1tb hitachi harddrive - no windows can install disk boot error - asus a7n8x mobo.

You can use an PCI sata card, but the bios must have the ability to boot from a PCI card. You may have to set first boot device to "boot other device" (page 76) but still requires the bios to detect a bootable hard drive on the pci card, not sure if it will or not, and you will have to load the pci card drivers using F6. You may get windows partially installed but it may fail if the bios cannot boot from the card on restart of setup.

Looks like it is raid 0 or 1 or nothing page 41, and 107

A:Mobo not detecting HDMI? - ATI Radeon HD 4250 onboard ASUS mobo

It's plausible that your HDMI port on your MOBO is dead. Is it possible to obtain a GPU and try it's HDMI port?
It could be your monitor as well, do you have access to anything else supporting HDMI and see if your monitor connects?

I'm trying to upgrade my AMB Ath 550 on an ASUs K7M MBoard, Slot A, 200 mghz FSb. I'm try to get the fastest cpu for the least amount of money that will work on my current MB. The ASUS manual states that the board is designed for a 242 pin slot A module, PBGA. I have been researching the available cpu's on E-Bay but all the descriptions for Slot A units with 200mghz FSB state that the number of pins are 400+. Does Slot A have different spec's? Also, can I use a cpu with a greater FSB on this MB? Does PBGA have any significance?

Thanks for your help.

A:cpu for ASUS MOBO

The only cpu you can use on that motherboard is the athlon slot A processor. You might find a used processor on e-bay. I believe the fastest slot A that was made was an 850mhz. Depending on the revision of your board you may need to upgrade the BIOS to accept a processor of that speed.

I posted this in another section, but no one is helping me out. Hopefully someone here can.

Ok, so from what I understand, windows XP will only see a MAX of 3 gigs. I have a mobo that supports dual channel memory, and so far have 2 sicks of 1gig. I would like to fill the other 2 slots, but can I do it with 2 sticks of 512? Or do I have to exactly match whats in the other 2 slots?

My motherboard is an ASUS M2N32 SLI Deluxe

This is the ram I currently have....

And these ones have the EXACT SAME voltages and timings, just different speeds. So my question is... could I put these in with 2 sticks of 1gig, for a total of 3 gigs, in dual channel? Or do I HAVE to buy 4 gigs, with the loss of 1.

Thanks for the help. -Dennis

A:Ram question with ASUS mobo

Technically you can throw those (RAM at second URL) in there with your current 2 sticks. It's not best practice to mix and match RAM though. You should try to get your hands on another stick of what you have already. Although, I know it can be tough to hunt down the exact same RAM after you've had it for a while.

The links you provided are broken but I was able to hunt down the 2 I believe you meant to post.

Please verify:

You currently have -

But you're looking at -

I'm not sure what you're running on your machine to need an extra 1GB of RAM on top of the 2GB you already have. But what kind of performance increase are you expecting to see?

A:How do DFI Mobo's compare to MSI and Asus?

From what I hear, DFI is feature packed, and a good board for someone who really wants to OC and squeeze out a few frames out of their system, Not that this can't be done with an ASUS.
On the downside, I have heard that the DFI boards aren't that stable, ever. If you OC, you know how frustrating it can be to have your board lock up as you try to find the perfect settings, and then having to clear the CMOS. (In that respect I would compare it with a Gigabyte board)

MSI is good, my favorite thing about MSI is the documentation that comes with the board, usually everything is explained very clearly and there is no need to guess what the right setting or jumper would be.

ASUS is just a all around great board! You can't go wrong there.
My 939 system uses a Chaintech Zenith VE, also a very nice board and so far I love it!

Recently purchased a new ASUS mobo (P5B-VM ver. 1.3) and Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 as the core of my new games system..

Everything went together well, was checked, checked and checked again... everything was technically sound.....

EXCEPT! it got past POST (Beep!) and there was nothing... no whizzes, pops or bangs... just silence!!!!

I had resisted in buying the mobo I was gonna buy cos I'd heard that some boards were incompatible, with Core 2 Duo processors, straight out of the box... they were compatible in a sense, just that they needed a BIOS update!!!

So am I one of ASUS' victims then!?!?! I had heard this has been a problem with various users, primarily owners of ver 1.3 mobo's across the whole board of ASUS mobo's.

So is the solution is to just put in another processor, download the BIOS and flash it then change my processor to my intended Core 2 Duo???

Many Thanks


A:Another ASUS mobo victim!?!?

Dunno, I've built over 100+ Asus systems (including three of your precise model) with absolutely no problems. Building systems requires some degree of savvy and technical know-how in order to investigate and troubleshoot common problems. Throw in the occasional bad or incompatible/cheap hardware (memory, cpu's, psu's, etc.etc.) and best practices overrule assumptions.

I've never had your issue with any revision BIOS in the P5B-VM series with C2D cpu's. As you hear a "beep", this means it is posting so it's something else you have confused or misconfigured. It has integrated video and you're supposed to connect to this for the first boot in order to then configure a discrete PCI-Express card (thus disabling the integrated).

A:help OC'ing E8400 with ASUS Mobo

First off you should google Overclocking and find as much about it as possible.

Right were ready to begin The e8400 has a 9X multiplier and a base FSB clock of 333. So 9 X 333 = 3GHZ with 4 X 333 = 1333MHZ FSB.

You want to acheive a 1:1 ratio between your cpu and ram. In your case your ram is 800mhz so a setting of 400 for the fsb is what you want.

RAM = FSB x 2

So 400 x 2 will give you 800mhz

If the E8400's FSB base clock is increased to 400 you get an OC of 3.6GHZ (400 X 9) with a FSB of 1600MHZ (4 X 400).

Hey, simple question in theory: let a friend borrow my netbook; she forgot to pack the powercord for her trip and with hopeful intentions tried using a printer plug that just happened to be the same size... but different voltage.

As you all probably know, it wasn't good for the computer. Since then it hasn't turned on but someone did mention a potential fail-safe switch that could be on the motherboard, kind of like a a surge protector. When I plug it into the correct plug, none of the lights (charging included) come on, and it won't turn on with the battery fully removed too and at this point I'm out of ideas and hope is running out too.

So, is my 901 fried or is there some amazing recovery trick out there that I'm not aware of?

A:Is my Asus 901 mobo fried?


To be honest it doesn't sound good.....not sure about the fail safe switch....either way needs to be taken apart and maybe be not viable as if the MB is damaged which sound most likely it probably cost more than a new lappy.

The sound was fine until recently. Starting a couple of months ago, I would intermittently get no sound after booting up. I would always solve this by disabling AMD High Definition Audio Device under Device Manager.

A couple of days ago, this no longer worked. Over the last couple of days, I have tried nearly everything; I have uninstalled the drivers for both of the sound controllers and reinstalled them countless times, I have installed Realtek HD sound drivers, reinstalled ATI Catalyst, ensuring that the sound driver is being installed, switched to AC97 in BIOS and then back to HD, but nothing seems to work.

This is how the sound controllers appear under Device Manager. I don't understand why there are two. I guess the first is the GPU one?

Before resorting to any radical hardware change, I would advise you to boot your system with minimum required hardware; i.e. HDD with OS on it; One stick of ram; disconnect dvd as well; if you have onboard vga, you can try using that instead of your graphic card i.e. 4890. Also ensure that system is clean, and see what happens.

Have you tested your system's ram as well with memtest ?

can anyone please help.

I'm working on my friend's computer and was going through many very much needed updates and I had got to the bios.Click to expand...

What "very much needed updates" are you talking about? You should not unnecessarily try to update the BIOS.

I suggest that you clear the CMOS and then try rebooting your system. Express Gate is not necessary for your PC to function properly. I myself uninstalled it from my PC.

You have to enter teh BIOS and change the boot sequence so that it goes something like A, CD-ROM, SATA

Hey everyone, I was trying to update the Logo on the BIOS and it didn't program right or something, so my BIOS is all messed up and I get:

System Failed CPU Test

as a voice POST error, so I cannot do anything.

So far, I have tried resetting the BIOS by removing the battery and setting the jumper and back, but that doesn't do anything to help.

I think that it's just not looking for the CPU at the right speed, any suggestions?

Is there a way to disable their JUMPERFREE mode so that I can manually set CPU speed? I couldn't find one yet.

I cannot get into the BIOS or even have anything show up on the screen because the CPU test failed is one of the first tests done, and it stops after that.

Thanks for your help!

Ok, so heres the deal. Recently my Asus K8N (AMD socket 754) mobo died on me (possibly becuase of a really bad thunderstorm here) and it left my computer completly useless. Since then I've got a new mobo (Asus A8V - AMD socket 939), a new chip, some more memory, and a new PSU. Here the problem. When I boot it up, it gets to the Win XP load screen and instantaniously restarts. I think this is because the drivers from my old board are conflicting with the new hardware.
My question:
Is there a way for me to get rid of the old drivers and install the new ones without formating my entire drive or buying another Asus K8N board? I really don't want to loose my files, programs, and settings.

Thanks in advance,

It hit the USB 3.0 Connection for my front panel, so this was not possible. Instead installed in the 16_3 (16x) slot. Problem is that the corner of the SSD PCB rests firmly upon the PCH heatsink. Looking for advice on how to manage this prior to starting up. Anyone who has solved this problem?

I've seen this problem on an older build and the best solution was a new motherboard. It's all about the layout of devices fastened to the board, a microATX board gives less possibilities than a full ATX board. Then I had to get a taller tower case to hold the full ATX board but it worked out better than I planned as I could add a second HDD without interfering with other things. A possibility with the full ATX board is some have 2 PCIe X16 slots.

multiplier or the fsb could be set wrong. check in the BIOS to see what they're set at. i suggest getting a motherboard that supports his 800fsb or he wont be able to utilize the full potential of the processor. or, try checking for a BIOS update that would allow the 800fsb. if there isnt one then a new board would fix it.

Hi there,

Can anyone give me advice on DDR memory compatibility with my ASUS P4P800S-X motherboard please?

I currently have 1 GB of PC2100 266mhz memory in my system but I want to upgrade. I can only afford a stick of 1GB Kingston DDR400 PC3200 serial number KVR400X64C3A/1G which (I hope) will work on its own in this mobo. I want to know if I could mix the 2 sorts of memory (DDR400 & 266Mhz) to give me 1.5 GB of memory. Next month i will buy another 1GB stick and replace the 512MB PC2100 so this is only a short -term problem.

Hello all,

I've built a PC using an Asus P5G41T-M mobo w/ an HDMI connector. I'm currently using an nVidia GT220 hooked to a Dell monitor at 1920x1080 (VGA). I can't seem to get the PC to recognize the HDMI port. The manual is pretty slim and only mentions that an HDMI port exists. On the Asus web site (after filling out lots of extraneous info) I was able to register and check out their 'support' forum. Not much help there. There was a small article about the HDMI working only if there was nothing plugged into the (onboard) VGA or DVI. I'm not using any onboard video, I'm using the nVidia. Is there some setting in Win7 that I need to check? I generally use Linux, but this is a PC I will be using for video editing (converting old VHS tapes to DVD).


A:HDMI not recognized on Asus mobo

wftomlin, welcome to the Seven Forums.

There is nothing you can do in Windows (or Linux for that matter) to get around what you are trying to do, it is entirely a hardware/bios issue. Not sure what is in the paper manual but the PDF version from here,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P5G41T-M

has enough to go on for the most part. The problem is that in a lot of cases the onboard video gets disabled when a video card is detected, and usually not much that can be done about it. In the case of your motherboard it may be possible if you go into the bios to the Chipset section and set the "Initiate Graphic Adapter" to [PEG/IGD],

No promises but that should allow for the onboard video to be used at the same time as the video card.

P.S. Does your GT 200 not have a HDMI port as well? If it does and you only have one monitor connected to the card, you can use it instead of trying to get the one for the onboard video to work.
