Hello pkroks.

I can`t answer you question, but would like to offer you some advice.

If you system is running ok, I don`t advise you to update your bios.

The updating of a bios should not be done, unless there is a very good reason to do so.

My problem is simple, but complicated.
I can't get my DDR3 2000 RAM to run at stated specs on an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Motherboard.
I can't seem to get all of the settings right, since there are so many "extra" settings that the memory manufacturers don't specify.

I will post screen shots of the BIOS when I get a chance.
I can get my Bloomfield Core i7 to overclock to around 2.9Gz by changing the bclk from 133 to 143. The increase is needed to raise the 1866 max memory timing to 2006.

However I can't seem to get the timings and voltage right for the memory to run at that speed(2006Mhz).

Any help is appreciated.

EDIT: I have updated my "System Spec"

A:Asus P6T Deluxe V2 BIOS Timings

haven't had any experience with overclocking that board, but since 2000mhz is considered to be an overclocked speed for the RAM (when coupled with the board) you may be forced to use different timings. just because the memory can run at DDR3-2000 speeds doesn't necessarily mean the board can w/ a 1:1 ratio. you can try using a different ratio between the CPU and RAM but the timings will probably be off.

Hi I had some problems with a Zalman I think it still has problems it was reporting rpm instead of Anyways I assumed that the Motherboard may well be reporting the wrong rpm s so I decided to check Bios updates I did have the latest Bios Update and assumed that the previous Bios was reporting my CPU cooler as correct So I ran the AsusUpdate utility to see what it can do There is a Bios Downgradable option I didnt have the previos version backed up so I re downloaded the previos version problem... Deluxe Asus Bios update A8V and then ran the Downgrade option I browsed to Asus A8V Deluxe Bios update problem... the Bios file and updated to the previos version All seemed to go well I get no Bios Errors on boot and all settings seem fine But Asus A8V Deluxe Bios update problem... I have issuses On Board Sound dont work Even tho I have a Audigy Card and when I run dxdiag instead of Giving me the Mainboard Name it says quot To Asus A8V Deluxe Bios update problem... be filled by O E M quot So I read on the internet that you can recover the original Bios from the Support CD So I restart PC with CD rom and press Alt F to run Flash Bios Utility when prompted I browse to the Original A V bios file and recover the Bios Again all goes well but still no Onboard Sound Any one have any ideas or is my bios screwed Thx for any input nbsp

A:Asus A8V Deluxe Bios update problem...

So why do you want to have onboard sound when you have an Audigy card? Are you sure the onboard sound is not disabled in the BIOS or automatically disabled when you install a seperate PCI card? Did you install the drivers in Windows?

As for the "To be filled by O.E.M", its not uncommon for some fields to be left blank and it won't cause any problems. Repeatly updating your BIOS can be much more hazardess if something goes wrong and the board will not longer boot at all.

I also don't understand the whole thing about downgrading that you are talking about. Whenever you need to do a BIOS update you only ever need to update to the latest version as all previous fixes are included in the latest one. You can back up the current BIOS version if you wish to have for a backup.

And the fan RPM's; fan speeds are rarely constant and can be mis reported slightly - again not an issue thats worth the risk of updating the BIOS.

I did not buy this computer. Just happen to come across it at work in one of our computer labs.

I turn on the computer and the fans in the computer turn on for about 1 second and then the computer totally turns off. No error beeps or anything.

Would this be something wrong with the PSU or the Mobo?

I did some testing, but still getting the same problem. I took the mobo out of the PC and set it on a book and built it outside the PC Box and I am still having the same problem.

When i got everything installed and booted up the pc, the computer said that the processor speed changed and to update the BIOS settings. SInce i do not know much about BIOS i looked for about 15 minutes and could not figure out how to update the bios settings. I had screwed around with a couple of things so i set all the settings back to default then exited and saved changes. Right after i pressed enter to exit and save changes the pc just shut off. Now when i start the pc i can hear everything running but nothing shows up on the moniter. help please.

turn ur machine on - and straight away hold down 'home' until the machine posts (this resets the bios) then hit delete and enter the bios settings. move along until the option advance bios settings (i think that whats it called) appears and select that. one of the first options will be CPU FSB or something similar - set this to 133Mhz, hit F10 save and exit - the machine should now boot fine

I was wondering if it is possible to flash the bios of an ASUS P4C800 Deluxe to that of an P4C800-E Deluxe. I was wondering this because they are basically the same boards except the "E" version has maybe more features. I don't care if I lose on board sound or lan, because I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS, and a Linksys network card. All i want to know is if this is possible, without rendering my motherboard dead and useless.

A:Updating Bios - Asus P4P800-e Deluxe

First things first, do you need to update your BIOS. When such a thing goes wrong, you have 90% chances of finding yourself with a dead or completely useless motherboard.

In this kind of situation, the motto "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" really applies.

If you still want to go ahead, get the Windows 98 bootdisk HERE. Get the ASUS flashing utility & the new BIOS file (both can be downloaded HERE).

Extract the BIOS file & the flashing utility on a CD-RW, create the bootdisk & boot on it with CD-Rom support. Once booted, change the working directory to the CD-Rom & launch BIOS updating utility (remember the backup the original BIOS).

Once again, you are doing this update at your own risk. If the BIOS flash goes wrong, you will not get a RMA for your board as it is your fault that it got damaged.

Hey all,

I'm having some trouble with my ASUS BIOS. It is possible one of the reasons which is not letting me enable AGP Texture Acceleration (from DXDIAG). So now I need to update it. Ive read that you can 'flash' this however it seems quite complicated. I read the procedure here - Personally i dont think i have that ability to literally take apart my PC and dont want to risk that. Is there anything I can do to enable AGP Texture Acceleration w/o updating bios?

GFX is a ATI Radeon 9600 Series

Any help si appreciated. thanks in advance.

A:Update ASUS A8V Deluxe BIOS to enable AGP Texture Acceleration? Help!

Hi, linkzor. I looked up your motherboard on the Asus site, and the bios updates they have listed for your motherboard are not even worth upgrading to. They don't list anything about fixing agp texture acceleration, either. However, if you still want to flash your bios, simply visit the asus support website, download their auto-flash bios tool and your bios, and it does everything for you. you do NOT need to take apart your pc.

Also, Perhaps your video card does not support agp texture acceleration?

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?

Hi all, I cant remember which would be a better Motherboard for the change that I am doing. What is the major difference between the two? I am going to put an Athlon 64 3400 and Kingston HX3500 ram on it. Is one better than the other? My video card will be 6800GT if that makes any difference.

Thanks very much in advance for your patience...

A:Which Mobo.ASUS K8V SE DELUXE OR Asus K8N-E Deluxe ?

The main difference is the chipset, the 8v uses the via chipset while the 8n uses the nvidia chipset. Id persoanlly go with the sk8v instead of the k8v deluxe, I looked and honestly cannot find a difference between the sk8v and the k8v deluxe, other than the name. But I have heard better things about the new via chipset verses the nvidia one, so go with either the k8v or the sk8v over the k8n.

A:ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe or ASUS A8N-SLI Premium

You will not notice any performance difference, by default, between the two using a 64 or FX processor... the chipset is the same and the supported memory is the same among them, along with integrated components.

The only notable difference is that the premium has a heatpipe to cool the chipset and chipset VRM on the board, and it allows you to alter voltage to the chipset. This lets it run without needing a fan (the chipset).

The latter would be better for overclocking, marginally.

I thuoght that it wuld be higher, but i might be talking about somethign different. it even says that the effective clock is only 200 MHz too.

Hey everyone !

I bought this mainboard a couple of week's ago and right from the get go the bios seem's to be on the slow side,

When I'm in the bio's the reaction time is quite slow, It's kind of annoying since I'm in there quite a bit.

The system is fine in windows and stable.

Has anyone ...come across this before ?

Would a bad cmos battery cause this?

thanks for any ideas. Derrick

A:Asus P4P-E Deluxe

G'day Derrick, I can't say I have ever seen that problem before, the battery should not cause it, but you never can tell, does it lose time on the clock? That is usually the first indication.
When the machine is in that particular mode everything should work normally moreso than when it is in other modes.
I would be inclined to run memtest86 and see what it shows, I cannot think of anything off-hand that might explain that problem, (I really am a little low on thinking ability here!)
It wouldn't be something like a battery in back-to-front or something like that by any chance, I saw that once, lucky the battery had been flat.
Cheers, qldit.

Well as high as it can safely go, honestly. With that cooler, you could hit the 4ghz barrier easily. You'll need to tweak voltages though, I think, at that clock speed.

Ok, I've been through **** trying to get a new build to work mainly due to RAM problems, the story is far too long to explain here but basically I have been reading about RAM for this model of mobo and I don't want to make another mistake buying RAM for it. Can anybody recommend some that IS compatible and preferably for dual channel 2GB around 200$ I don't need anything over the top or extreme, just some decent RAM that is compatible and won't fail me.

Thank you for all responses.

A:Asus K8V SE Deluxe help

You cant swap hard drives like that with XP or 2000. The drive has the chipset drivers from the old computer and thats most likely whats causing the problems. You need to put the drive back in the old computer and back up your inportant data on a cd, then put the drive in the new machine, boot from the XP cd and format and do a clean install.

Thought I'd share a little bit of info I picked up while settings up Seven on my new rig.

Found that the driver CD that comes with the motherboard doesn't work off the bat. Autoplay doesn't like Seven for whatever reason, so what I ended up doing was browsing the CD and running the setup executable in compatability mode for Vista, worked like a charm. Called ASUS to find out if they had any beta Seven drivers and turns out they more than likely will not be releasing anything until after Seven goes RTM. The only issue I still have is a list of System Interupt Controllers as unknown devices in device manager. Aside from that, everything works great so far!

[BTW - Hi all TechSpotters, it's been (more than) a while!]

At long last I'll buy a new rig. My current plan is to base it on Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, not just because of its SLI capability, but also because it seems to be the best AMD mobo when it comes to future upgrades? Any thoughts on this?

Here are some other components I'm thinking of (as of now anyway):
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Asus GeForce 6600 GT 128MB PCI-E

Also, it's very important that the rig is as silent as possible - so I'd be very grateful for tips on quiet heatsinks/fans.

In fact, I'd be very grateful for any tips on my new rig.

I have an Asus A8V Deluxe with an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+ 1802 Mhz

I was wondering if I upgraded to AMD A64 4800+ AM2 X2 BOX 65W would make much of a difference. I have been adding a few things lately, ie new tv tuner, 2 more hard drives and 2 more Gigs of ram and it seems slower. I think this is the highest processor I can go with this board.

If it won't make much of a difference I would rather wait and get a whole new system in a few months. I can get the processor for $109.00 here in Canada


A:Asus A8V Deluxe

the problem i see is the motherboard you have is socket 939 which will not take an am2 cpu they make a 4800 x2 for 939 pin but i think there pretty expensive man on ebay they go for over $250. There are faster single core cpus you could find but i say hold the money you have and wait till you can upgrade alot more.

Has anyone had any joy installing Windows 7 Ultimate x86 onto a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe?

I have a RAID0 configured using the Silicon Raid chip. I've had this running under XP, XP64, Vista64 previously.

During the install I get to the prompt (the old F6 prompt) to load drivers, I have download some drivers from ASUS, Silicon and MS but none seem to work.

I don't think it is the RAID0 that is really an issue as I also have another disk connect to the Silicon chip, that is not configured for RAID but it fails to detect that drive as well.

I've followed a few threads on here and other websites, but I cannot seem to get around this.

I've tried:
Silicon Image - Support | Search Results
Microsoft Update Catalog Some of these, but there are loads.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.



Do you have an extra drive you could test by turning off the RAID to see if it will load without it. I seem to remember something about Nvidia drivers if you have an Nvidia chipset on that board.

A:asus k8v se deluxe help

SATA & IDE are two different connection standards for hard drives. If you have a SATA drive, you do not need to concern yourself with IDE settings except for the CD-Rom/DVD-Rom drives which are still on a majority in the IDE format & vice-versa, if you have an IDE hard drive you do not need to concern yourself with SATA settings.

Do you have a RAID capable system with two or more HDDs ? If not, you cannot install a RAID setup.

& yes the CPU FAN being connected to a Molex connector from your PSU means your motherboard cannot monitor the RPMs of your fan & thinks there is no fan installed. If you are sure that the fan is running, it is nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if your fan happens to fail later down the road, the system will not detect it & will not take the proper precautions (such as a system shutdown). It is a risk you are taking.

I recently bought a dual processor setup ie the asus dl deluxe motherboard and a pair of xeons. Along with this i purchased 2x 300gb sata 150 maxtor drives hoping to use these setup as a striped raid array.

The two new drives are completely blank at present, but i would like to keep my existing os and data on my two 120gb drives.
Is this possible? and can anyone advise on how i go about setting the two new drives up as a 600gb raid array?

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.

Ok, I have an IbuyPower ATX tower (Raidmax) with an Asus K8V Deluxe MB AMD 64 3200 processor, 3 G ram. I just upgraded it (along with two other or my PC's) to Win7 Home Premium. This machine makes a crash sound periodically (once an hour?) and the display goes black and says "no signal". In less than 15 seconds it returns to normal and is ready to go. So it's not a real Crash but something else. I suspect the GeForce FX5900 )128Ram) Video card. I have checked and updated all the drivers for the chipset, MB and the GeForce card. When this happens I see the CD/DVD drive lights (have two) flash like on start up but it's not a reboot that's happening that fast.

Anyone got a clue?

Re: First post

I would use Kingston Extream and only go with 2x 512 as there will not be much demand for even that and it will still give you good room for advancement. unless you are using that motherboard in a game server you realy don't need more then a gig use the money you were going to spend on the other gig and buy the best RAM you can find it will be worth it and remeber the Kingston name is the warrentee anything ever goes wrong with the ram RTM and they will replacce it.

i have 2GB dual channel of this RAM:

and an Asus A8V Deluxe mobo.

i've had the BSOD quite a bit and my minidumps seem to suggest RAM problems.

using one stick alone, either one, i seem to have no problems. a friend suggested that maybe slowing down the RAM might help it run without the BSOD.

but i'm a newbie...i see a ton of settings in the BIOS for RAM and am not sure what to do!!

like CAS, TRC, TRFC, TRCD, TWR, TRWT, TRAS, TRP, TWCL and more...
they are all currently set to AUTO

what is the best way for me to tweak these settings?

help is appreciated!!

A:How do I slow down my RAM on Asus A8V Deluxe?

If the RAM is set to auto then the timings are already very conservative and it would be unlikely that setting them any lower would do any good. Auto means the board goes right to the RAM and accesses an onboard chip (the SPD) that tells the board what speed to run RAM at. These settings are very conservative so as to run stably on all boards.

It may be that you have a hogh temperature problem with the CPU or the PSU isn't up to the task. What are your specs, specifically the PSU name and wattage as well as amps on the 12v rail, CPU type, motherboard name and model, video card(s), and all peripherals. Also, can you get a temp reading off the CPU during heavy load.

well I'm sitting here trying to setup my new ASUS motherboard. At first it would not recognize anything in on the secondary IDE. I changed the IDE configuration to Enhanced mode and told it to accept P-ata and s-ata. Now it recognizes everything but instead of saying that my hardrive is on the primary IDE channel as master and that my cdrom and dvd (two separate divices) are the master and slave on the secondary IDE it pushed the Hardrive to the third IDE channel and the cd and the dvd to the fourth IDE channel. Anyone got any idea of how this might have happened?

A:Asus P4C 800-E Deluxe Question

bios and os will determine how big a hd you can support.

XP pro will work if you have service pack1 installed.

I would not suggest 98 simply because it is no longer supported and is much less stable than XP.
Asus website does not specifically state what size HD it supports but it is a current board so I would be VERY suprised if it would not support a 160GB hd.

Windows 98 should work with that board. It is supported & there are drivers for all the integrated components of the board for Windows 98. I don't have any hands down expericence with that OS/mainboard combination so this is all in theory.

What other harwdare are you planning on porting over to the new mainboard ? You shouldn't have any troubles with the VGA card & the HDD. You won't need to use your old sound card & the PC2100 will be useless if you ever get a CPU with an FSB above 133 ( 266 ).

The Thoroughbred & Barton are names for the different cores of AthlonXP CPUs. The main difference between both is the size of the Level 2 Cache. Thoroughbreds have 256kb, Bartons have 512kb. There are also Thoroughbreds with 133 ( 266 ) FSBs & 166 ( 333 ). Bartons are available with 166 ( 333 ) & 200 ( 400 ) FSBs.

Make sure to check out this thread ( Identifying AMD processors ) to know what speed the chip is running at & what FSB it uses. If you get a CPU with a 166 ( 333 ) FSB, you will need PC2700 Ram, if you get one with a faster FSB such as 200 ( 400 ) you will need PC3200.

Anything else you'd like to know about the board ?

Hello everyone.. I have a bit of a problem with a PC I just built.

Ok. Everything seemed fine and everything appears to be in working order. Now sometimes when I flip on the power supply the computer turns on by itself, all of the fans are running etc.. and then about 5-10 seconds later it shuts off.. From there you can trun it on via the power button as usual. Why is this happening? I have read some other fourms/posts and someone had said to check the wake on LAN, boot from USB etc.. in the BIOS to see if it was enabled, but it is NOT. Let me know if anyone has any ideas. Thanks in advance.....

Hi guys,

I'd really appreciate some help with this.
I've been trying to install Vista for a few days on my system comprised of a A8R32 Deluxe board and a NEC 3500AG DVD Drive. The reason I mentioned the DVD drive is because I'm getting a "Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing." error message after the language selection screen.
When I click 'Browse' the dvd drive is indeed not listed but all the HDDs (all SATA btw) are listed. I mean the dirve the Vista installation just booted from it's now not found!?
So I recon it's the IDE controler drivers that it needs.

My board has the Ali M5229 chipset and the ALI dudes don't even have a support button on their site.
The ULI also only has a very old ALLIDE.inf driver in the packge.

Any ideas?

Much apreciated,

Most of that looks like a driver conflict/incorrect driver version.

Where did you get the drivers? If you got them from the cd that came in the box I would grab a new set from the manf website and try those.

A:Problem with my Asus P6T Deluxe V2

I think you got the wrong CPU for that mobo. The mobo socket is 1366 ... see here .... if your i7 is not the "Extreme Edition i7" it will never work. Here's the CPU support list for that mobo.....

As I see it, you have to options; replace the cpu with the correct cpu socket type (1366) which can be costly. Or get a new mobo with socket 1150/1151 for what I believe your current i7 is which would be a lot cheaper.

With out knowing the full details of your hardware this is all just a CPU i7.

BTW....with Asus mobo's, you get the Q-connector which makes it hassle free for front panel connections. I wish the rest of the mobo manufacturers would follow suite.

The Asus Q-Connector allows single-step connection and disconnection of chassis front panel cables with one complete module. This unique adapter ensures quick and accurate connections without the trouble of plugging cables in separately.

I had a power failure while trying to flash update the BIOS.
When I re-booted I kept getting an error message to the effect that "ROM is locked...check that jumper is set properly....." Or something like that.
It then would not boot from any drive.
The only jumper I am aware of is for resetting the CMOS.
I attempted to reset the CMOS and the motherboard fails to POST.
Now it will not do anything at all.
Aside from replacing the motherboard, how do try to resurrect my motherboard?

I bought a PC with a ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard a month or so ago and installed Windows 7 Ultimate to a SATA drive.

When the machine boots up it goes through the process of initialising the onboard RAID controller then looking for drives to boot from RAID - of which there aren't any.

Also in Device Manager I have a RAID controller showing under Other Devices as 'not installed'.

Can I disable RAID in the BIOS to speed up booting as I don't need it at present (or do I???)?

If so how?

Thanks in advance


A:ASUS P6T Deluxe - not using RAID

It sounds like you need (want) to switch from RAID to AHCI mode for SATA. You can't just switch it AFTER the OS is installed - you would not be able to boot into Windows afterward.

Can you go into the BIOS and tell us what the settings are for the Storage Configuration? (Don't change anything yet) It will be the MAIN tab > Configure SATA As:
Can you post a screen shot of the device manager with all the hard drive related items expanded?

This tutorial shows you how to switch the SATA mode after the OS is installed:
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Before the switch it is usually necessary to uninstall the RAID drivers first. But because the RAID controller shows up as an other device and not installed I suspect the drivers were never installed in the first place.

Before doing the switch you will need to back up all your important data. You should prepare as though you were going to wipe the drive and install everything fresh - because worst case is that is what you may need to do. That said, the above method works without a hitch most times.

EDIT: I assume there is only one Hard drive in your computer?
