Asus P5K Deluxe won't find hardware! HELP!

Question: Asus P5K Deluxe won't find hardware! HELP!

Heya!

Just bought a new computer and put it together, after some failed starts etc the Asus P5K Deluxe tells me that it wants a bios recovery and starts searching in USB/CD/Floppy, so I decide to give it a go and shove in the Asus CD. It finds p5k.rom (or similar) and starts programming it says, after that it reboots and now I just cannot get past the AMIBIOS logo where it's supposed to find the hardware.

It gets stuck, but if i leave it for a while it draws huge black lines all over the screen with itty pieces of text in it, like the sata name and 800 and 1024 etc, the only thing that it finds fully is the CPU, which is a Intel Core 2 Quadro 2,4.

I have tried resetting bios and everything, but seeing as how I can't even get into the friggin bios it's quite hopeless this .. I really want my new comp to start Please help!

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. Basically my question boils down to is there one I should use over the other?

Thanks very much in advance for your patience...
 

Answer: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.

Anybody any suggestion to what keeps me from installing/running ASUS Smart Doctor 2 (software to monitor Chip temperature , fan speed etc) while I run Win XP Professional on a PC with ASUS P4C800 DeLuxe Motherboard , Chipset Intel 875P ?

Yes ... do you have an ASUS graphic card as Smart Doctor is for ASUS GFX cards only and thats why its saying you dont have a ASUS device installed.

CPU: AMD64 Athlon X2 4400+
Motherboard: ASUS A8N32-SLI DELUXE
Memeory: SAMSUNG PC3200 2GB (1GB x 2) DDR400
GPU: ASUS EN7600GS SILENT PCI Express 512MB DDR2
PSU: 550W SILENT KING-4 SUPER SILENT SWITCHING POWER SUPPLY
HDD: 300GB SATA II

Status: After installing Windows XP SP 2 and the ASUS motherboard installation CD, the system won't take the drivers for the GPU. System boots to the Windows XP loading screen and remains there. The little green bar just keeps moving like it's loading Windows but it loops forever. Again, this started happening right after installing the nVidia drivers from the graphics card installation disc. If I power down manually and then power back up again, I can go into "the last known good" but every time I try to load drivers again, the system starts doing this. The latest drivers from nVidia cause the same issue. I'm starting to think this is a driver conflict with the ASUS motherboard chipset or the motherboard RAID drivers. Has anyone else had a problem like this?
 

Answer:ASUS A8NSLI-32 Deluxe + ASUS En7600GS Silent Trouble

Followup: I was able to fix it and thought I'd post this info since it might help others who might have the same problem. After reading through dozens of pages here and in the ASUS forums, I discovered that one of my default BIOS setting mysteriously ended up in a non-default state. For some reason, the RAID option for Silicon Image was set to RAID. That's fine for those how actually want to setup RAID but I didn't plan to use RAID at the time. After making the change to the BIOS, I had to install Windows XP again to get everything registered correctly. Once Windows was up and running, I avoided the motherboard chipset install CD all together by using only the newest versions of all the motherboard drivers directly from the ASUS website. Problem solved!

I Bought a new computer the other week.. After playing around with some games i get the feeling that it doesnt really perform as good as it's supposed to do. The computer, which I assembeled my self, has the following spec:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
ASUS GeForce 6800GT 256 meg
2x512 Crosair XMS3200XL PRO (CAS 2-2-2-5)
Nexus RealSilent 400W

Processor temperature is at 32 degrees celsius idle and 40 degrees at load. The GPU is somwhere around 50 at load and slightly lower at idle.

I Installed Windows XP SP2 on a newly formated partition and installed all available updates. Installed the latest Nvidia drivers for both chipset and the graphics card.

Well, my problem is that i get pretty lousy FPS in the most games (Far Cry beeing the only exception). In F.E.A.R. I get about 20 FPS in the higher setups. When i tern on FSAA to x2 and AF to x2, Soft Shadows on and Volumeric Lightning on i get somwhere between 10 and 20. After reading some tests of my setup, I get the feeling it should perform much better. In Doom 3, with FSAA x2 and AF x16, everything else on maximum, the FPS jumps between around 20 and 50 (exactly). In both of the games it doesn't make a real difference if i run it in 1280 or 1024 resolution.

I get around 11000 points in 3D mark 03, which, I get the feeling, is pretty what im supposed to get.

So; whats going on? Am I missing something important here, or is this perfectly normal? Could there be some BIOS setting that I have overloo... Read more

Answer:New Computer (ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe / ASUS 6800GT)

F.E.A.R. is a very hardware intensive game. That said, your video card is geting old, and is not going to play cutting edge games at the speed of light, like it once did, when it was new tech. Compare benchmarks, and you'll likely find you are getting the performance you should, for the hardware.

Answer: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.

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.

Everything is fine with the motherboard as it has dual LAN etc and even shows up as a A7N8X-deluxe revision 2 on startup and while running 3D mark.However, there is no firewire on this motherboard, as it is provided on a seperate PCI card.

[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.

Question: Asus P5E Deluxe

Does anyone have any experience with this board or a similar one,
Everything went perfect tested all 8gb of ram with memtest,
cpu was running under 30c all 4 cores.
Installed the drivers and couldn't get it to pull an ip,
messed with it a bit trying drivers from the Asus site and Marvells site.
Figured it was Vista and switched back to xp 32bit, same problem.

I even pulled a Linksys lan card from the closet and tried that, same problem.
Its not coming up as unplugged it says limited or no connection, it does switch to unplugged when i unplugg it.

I first tried Vista Ultimate x64 (First time using vista) then xp 32bit and then xp 64bit.

I gave up after a full day of trying different drivers and settings and put my P4c800e deluxe back in,
installed the drivers and had internet within 5min of getting to the desktop.

Also when windows would detect the lan it would say (WAN) and the drivers referred to it as a miniport,
not sure if this is what its supposed to be, seemed strange to me.

Any help with this headache would be appreciated.

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.

I'm just now building a new system with an A8N-SLI Deluxe, and i've run into a really odd problem...

i've always reffered to the motherboard ATX powe plug as a 24-pin ATX plug, but now that I look, all of my old motherboards are in fact 20-pim plugs with an extra 4 pin 12v connector.

on the A8N, it IS in fact a 24-pin EATX plug (so it says) and it ALSO has an additional 4-pin ATX 12v plug.

is there a new kind of power supply for such a setup? all of the power supplies I have will fit into the 24-pin plug, but they do not align with the clip, and they leave 4 pins empty, as they are 20-pin plugs.

any light that can be shed on this is greatly appreciated... weird new junk...
 

Answer:Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe

just looked around and saw that there ARE in fact 24 pin connectors on newer power supplies.... either I am blind, or I missed any mention of this change

hooray, time to spend another $60-90 and wait for a power supply...

All is found during bios check. Then the HD makes a sound, screen goes black for about 5 seconds, then HD starts to spin up again and I am given the choice between Microsoft Windows or Windows XP. The reason I have a choice is cuz I am not running NTFS, just FAT 32 and using a Win 98 boot disk was the only way I could do this. So it sees Windows and XP but windows O/S is not there, just XP. So I choose XP and then I get this blue screen that says:

Answer: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.

Hi

First of all i would like to congratulate on such a good and helpfull site. It made me solve many problems. Unfortunately not this one:

I Have an asus motherboard A8N-Sli Deluxe with AMD athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ 2.01Ghz running windows 7 32 bit operating system.

I was working fine when i had 2 512Mb ram in DIMM A1 DIMM B1
However now i bought 2 1Gig Ram and insterted them in DIMM A2 and DIMM B2

when i try to boot up they sometimes let me boot but after a while a blue screen comes saying dumping physical memory. Tested both new rams and they work fine by themselves.
Now i am running my PC with just the new 2 1Gig Ram and withouth runnin a heavy application it seems that my PC is working fine.

Could someone pls tell me what is happening. I really need to use my PC with 3Gigs of ram and run other applications appart from the internet.

Thanks beforehand
CB

Answer:Asus A8N-Sli Deluxe

Did you try you 2 x 1gb RAM in the A2 B2 slots? You could just have bad slots.

Try running memtest, testing each with one stick at a time. One of your sticks could be bad too.

Question: Asus P4P-E Deluxe

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
 

Answer: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.

Answer:asus a8v deluxe and 8x agp

The only suggestion I can offer is try updating all the drivers. I checked the motherboard and the graphics card and both do say 8x, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to why it appears as 4x.Mind you having said that regardless of whether its 4x or 8x you will notice no real difference. You would think the 8x is twice the speed of the 4x but this is not the case, why I don't know but I'm sure some knowledgeable person will explain if you really need to know.

Answer:asus k8n-e deluxe

Are you saying that you have also installed a PCI sound card? Usually a board will auto detect if another sound card is in the system and disable the onboard sound. You arn't really suppost to try to use two sound cards at the same time.

If you really want onboard sound to work, you most likely have to go into the bios when it's booting and enable the onboard sound.

when the computer boots it says , searching for ide drives.. it says none found and bios not installed.. i think its looking for a raid hdd? it then loads win xp fine with no problem.

When i go into device hardware properties in xp , the device driver for sata raid has a yellow mark next to it indicating its not working..

how do i fix this problem and also when it boots it looks for ide devices or a raid hdd i think?? boot xp loads fine.

also it says cpu fan error.. i think its due to the fact the cpu cable is connected to the atx blade case?? if so how do i stop this error from happening? when i got into the bios it does not show how fast the fans are spinning it says n/a, i think this is do to the fans are monitored by the case itself?? i know the fans are spinning.. any help would be appreciated,,, my main concern is when the computer boots it looks for ide devices then says none found bios not installed but then boots xp fine, also the error in the hardware properties next to the sata raid driver..

Answer: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.

Scenario-
I bought this built computer from someone for a couple hundred bucks a while back. I am looking to upgrade RAM and through all of my research from Google to the Asus website, I found that my MB ( Asus P5B Deluxe ) supports DDR2 800 PC6400 as the maximum, and up to 8GB of it. What I noticed when I took the RAM out to examine, is that the RAM the guy had installed on this desktop was DDR2 1000 PC8000. I have never encountered any problems, errors, etc.

Question-
Would there be something wrong going on that I cannot see being that there is a RAM package that the manufacturer claims is too high for my MB? If so, how could I figure this out? Another thing is I could not find a User Manual for this MB anywhere other than to buy one from amazon.com ... not even on the Asus website.

Hello, I have a PC being built at the moment, they will be using the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, can I use my old CRT Mitsubishi Diamondtron with that motherboard?I thank you in advance.

Answer:Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe with CRT?

I guess that it would depend on what graphics card (or cards in this case) you choose, Europa. If it/they have VGA output, then it will be fine, but I have seen quite a few PC-X graphics cards that only have dual DVI-I output. That said, it may not be a showstopper; I think it may be possible to get DVI to VGA adapters.

Hello,

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.

Thanks,
Gareth

Answer:ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe

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.

Ive got a question about which way some of the wires plug in so its probaly best if you own one as its going to be specific ....

So my question is ....

All the wires like power switch, reset swicth, internal speaker thing .... they all plug into these pins at the bottom of the board in one group.

Does it matter which way they go in or not? beacuase i think they will fit in both ways

Answer:If you have an ASUS A8V deluxe come here ....

They will fit in both ways. There will be no damage if they are the wrong way they just wont work.


Quote:




Connect Reset Switch: Find the wires coming from the reset switch and attach them to the appropriate pin connector on the motherboard. This switch has no polarity so it doesn't matter which way you connect it to to the motherboard





Quote:




Connect Case Power Switch (ATX systems only): On ATX systems the power switch on the case attaches to the motherboard and not the power supply. Find the appropriate two-pin connector and attach the wires coming from the switch to them. Make sure you don't mix this up with the reset switch.





Quote:




You can plug LEDs in backwards and it won't hurt them or the motherboard. Switches do not have a polarity and can be plugged-in either way. The speaker can be plugged-in either way

I posted the blurb below in an old thread that's been inactive for a year so I'm posting new with request for advice here, hope nobody minds.

I'm about out of my mind... no, correct that, I've gone round the bend with these problems, all the lost time, still-shaky behavior from my system.

Sure appreciate any help.

I too have had intermittent, brain-numbing, gut-twisting problems with this board. I've flashed the board bios a couple times but maybe it's time to do it again.

I run a dual boot (XP sp2 and Vista 64 bit) systems. I had many, many problems with freezups. I ended up having two, not one but two hard drives that failed, but the failures were intermittent and led me through, no lie, 2 months of troubleshooting with everybody in the world it seems, before I finally got it down to the drives (let us not forget those wonderful 5 hour calls to Microsoft where they go through the script before telling you they in essence have no idea what your problem is.)

After I replaced the two bad drives, it's worked pretty well, but lately it's given to freezing up again, randomly.

When I do a hard restart or power off, because I can't get any response, it reboots...sometimes. other times it won't, and I have to boot 4 or 5 times. Then, it'll work great...or boot up with my two primary working drives missing, but all the others there.

I'll reboot, check bios to make sure it sees all the drives, which it does, th... Read more

Question: ASUS P6T Deluxe

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!

Can somebody tell me about the to RJ45 plugs in the back... Is it only used as a network, or can it be used for anything else (ie. pluggin in both RJ45 cables in to the router and having internet go faster) That probably doesn't work... but it would be sweet if it would. Anyways, are they only there for hooking up another comp?
 

Answer:Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe

one of them is an nVidia LAN port which is standard 10/100 (100MBps), and the other is a Gigabit LAN port which is 10/100/1000 (1000MBps).

the only reason you have two is to be able to hook into 2 different networks at the same time... some businesses for example have their printers on one network and the rest of their intranet on another, so the printers dont use bandwidth from the main network.

hooking up two cables to the same router will do nothing unfortunately.

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?

I updated the BIOS (ASUS' site said i should do that) and now i want to start Windows XP, which were already installed on my WD Raptor. Windows will never load, it will just ask me how should i start windows (normal mode, safe mode etc.) and then it will reboot after 2-5 seconds while trying to load. If i choose normal mode i get a blue screen for 1 second and then reboot, if i choose safe mode it reboots after 5 seconds.

Well i have 15gigs of free space on this disk so i tried to re-install XP... but it wont find the SATA drive, even if i have installed the SATA drivers for ICH7R.

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.

Well, I just bought the K8V Deluxe/AMD Athlon 64 3200+ package and I installed it into a new case and all. I am installing my old drives, including a CD-RW, 40.0 GB HDD, and Floppy. At first, because my drives are old, I connected the drives through the generic IDE ports. When I boot my system, the FastTrak 378 Controller couldn't find a drive, and the system would restart. I then opened my BIOS and disabled the FastTrak 378, and when I rebooted my system nothing happened. I then connected the HDD to the FastTrak port, and enabled FastTrak again. The HDD was found, and everything seemed ok. After the FastTrak scan, the screen went black, with one white cursor top left. After about 30 seconds of waiting, the screen then changed, prompting me about an unsuccessful boot, and that a "recent hardware or software change might have caused this." Then it gives scenarios in which the computer restarted itself or the power failed, and then asks what I want to do. The options are boot in: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Config. (your most recent settings that worked), and Start Windows Normally. I chose Start Windows Normally, as booting in safe mode will do me nothing, and I have no known good config, since the Board and CPU are new. Every time I choose Start Windows Normally, the system just reboots and does the same.

Sorry for the long story, but I figured any and all information would be helpful. Thank you.

I finally recieved my new asus a8n-sli premium board (along with a bfg tech 7800gt and some other goodies) and got it all set up. To my dismay, the system would not boot. This is the second board i have tried to set up with my new system that would power up but would not post or show any video. I thought it was strange to receive 2 dead boards, so i decided to call AMD and see about the processor (also new, purchased with first board). Turns out my 3700+ San Diego is revision E4 (the other possibility is E6), and the a8n-sli premium did not support revision E4 - explaining what I thought was a dead board. so i returned the board to get the a8n-sli deluxe, which should be here tomorrow. the deluxe version does support the E4 revision, since BIOS 1007 or later.
so my question is - if i were to get this new deluxe board and it has an older bios (1001 or 1002), would it be able to boot so that i could flash it or would i have to send the board to asus to be flashed? i plan on contacting asus support if it the board doesnt boot, but i was wondering if anyone here knows what will happen or if they have had actual experience with this situation. i am very anxious to find out and didn't want to wait for asus support. so thank you in advance if anybody knows what's up :giddy:

Hi everyone, hopefully one of you has seen this before and can confirm what I suspect is happening.

I built this system earlier this year, no expense spared, SLI system with AMD FX-55, dual nvidia 6800 Ultras, etc. It was running like a top, if a bit hot but nothing outside of expected heat ranges.

One day it turns on, and I'm playing games. The very next day, all it does is beep at me. One long beep, repeated indefinitely. This does not seem to be a POST beep. There is no voice telling me the problem. There is no option to get into BIOS. There is no display. Everything powers up, all fans operational, just the beep.

I have removed every component except for the CPU and it still beeps at me. I'm going to remove the CPU and reset the BIOS today, but honestly I expect the same results.

Is the mobo fried? Should I just purchase a replacement?

Thanks for the help!

Aloha,
I ordered a Asus P4C 800-E Deluxe Mobo from Newegg and was wondering if it will run my Maxtor 160gb Ultra ATA/133 hdd without using a disk overlay manager. Is it the type of Mobo or OS or Bios that determines if it needs the overlay? Would Win98SE be ok? What about XP pro?? TIA

Mahalo,
doogdoog
 

Answer: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.

Although not advertised, I heard that I could put a Phenom AM2+ Processor in my AM2 Motherboard without a problem as long as I flash the mobo bios to the latest. I was wondering if there were any downsides to doing this and not just getting a new motherboard and what steps I should take to upgrade and in what order. Thanks.

Ok, how do I start? I am having a problem with my new mobo and my cisco aironet 350 wireless lan card. In my old system, a via kt266a based system, the pcmcia adapter and 350 card shared an IRQ with no problems. On the new system I built, with a Asus A7N8X deluxe, I keep getting an IRQ conflict on the 350 card. I disabled all the on board devices(most of them anyway) and have tried putting the pcmcia adapter in all 5 pci slots and still get the conflict. Device manager shows both devices using same IRQ or at least wanting to. I tried putting the same adapter and 350 card in another pc and it works fine on that system. I am using Windows XP Pro. I did notice after installing the setup in the other pc( also a Via KT266a mobo) it has the 350 card using the same IRQ but as an isa device. The adapter shows up as a PCI device. I use a wireless ISP so this is a pretty important problem. In fact I logged on the internet with the card and adapter I am trying to put into my new system. The following is a list of components on new system. Any help would be great and thanks.

Asus A7N8X deluxe (nvidia Nforce II chipset)
Athlon XP 2400
256MB PC3200 ram
ATI Radeon 9500 pro
Maxtor 40GB ata133 hard drive

Answer:IRQ on Asus A7N8X Deluxe

In BIOS setup go to boot menu and select APIC for Interrupt Mode. This will allow the Motherboard to create more IRQ then the standard 16 IRQ channels.

I think little tab is there to stop movement of standard AGP cards and is removed for Pro versions, BUT, would read your motherboard instructions and the instructions on your graphics card when it arrives. - Patience is a virtue, you know! lol Wait, read and see, before you remove anything.Bodi

I am looking to buy a 3.4ghz northwood soon and I have the asus p4p800 deluxe motherboard. Asus says that this motherboard supports 3200ghz+ on their website. Does anyone have this config that can tell me wether or not its doable and if its stable and runs at a decent temperature. Thanks
 

Answer:ASUS P4P800 Deluxe & P4 3.4C

You need a BIOS update to support that CPU, version 1014.

So a few days ago my computer had an overheating problem and I decided to buy a new Zalman heatsink for it. The problem was that I had to forcefully remove the pre-installed backplate that came with the Asus. This created a few small scratches on the motherboard which may or may not have caused significant harm.

Now, whenever I turn on the computer, i get a checksum bad error and whenever I attempt to exit from bios and save changes, the computer goes into standby mode and will not budge. BTW I'm using a cordless keyboard / mouse, not sure if that's the case. And recently, I haven't been able to go into the BIOS anymore because it freezes after several keystrokes.

I've done everything from removing the cmos battery to clearing CMOS ram but nothing seems to be working. If I hit F2 and run on defaults, i can get on but over time, the computer fails to turn on after a shutdown. It just goes into standby.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me. I guess I learned my lesson on "If it don't broke, don't fix it". But seriouslly, i need a lot of help because the only way I can get it to boot now is by manually disassembling and reassembling the computer and clearing the CMOS with the jumper. It is very inconvenient.

Your help is greatly appreciated. Any feedback/ comments are welcome

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 sorry for being a noob at this.

I have two ata133 maxtor drives of 120gb each, they are what ive been using in my previous system to date.

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?

Thanks in advance.

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?

Answer:ASUS P4P800E-Deluxe

are you sure you set all the jumpers right? including the ones on your CD drives?

also i think you you are confusing some terms ... if you are only using one IDE HDD, you will only need to worry about 2 IDE channels(channel 1 + 2) unless you are dealing w/ a SATA drive

you should set the jumpers on your maxtor(im assuming that's a PATA, that's the standard drive w/ those wide ribbon cables and it's the boot drive) as single on IDE channel one(primary) and the jumpers on your CD drives on IDE channel 2(secondary) to master and slave respectively

if you are not using a SATA drive and you've messed w/ some of the SATA settings than set the BIOS the fail safe defaults or reset the CMOS(your mobo manuel will tell you how to do that)

Also in the mobo manual it says
"Due to CPU limitation, DIMM modules with 128 Mb memory chips or double-sided memory chips are not supported in this motherboard", which mine are double-sided.

Which is strange as Crucials website states that this is THE most popular choice of RAM for this mobo.

Hi,

Basically my wireless sometimes can not connect to the router which is only about 3-4 meters away sometimes it connects but there is no internet access. I disable the adaptor and enable it again and it works on some occasion while other times it doesn't.

During all this time I try the wireless network on the laptop and it works, even downstairs.

Can someone please help as I have not been able to use the internet on it for the last 4 hours. I have tried quite a few things.
I have disconnected the ASUS Ariel and reconnected after a while,

Hi all!

I've got a minor prob with a new Asus P4C800-E deluxe mobo.
I got it because it has 4 SATA connections 2 on a Promise Technology chipset & 2 on a Intel SATA_RAID chipset.

So I thought-ah!-I can connect 4 SATA hdd's in 2 RAID(0) configurations &
set one as C:\ & the other as D:\.

I've managed the C:\ drive RAID(0) config OK- the problem is with the RAID config on the Intel RAID chipset.

I haven't worked out how to do it yet.
To set the background-I'm using WinXPsp2 and the hdd's are matched for
each chipset conections ie 2 Seagate Barracuda's 160gig each
on the Promise Tech & 2 300 gig Seagate Barracuda's on the Intel chipset.

The Asus manual confirms that you can create RAID configs on both chipsets
separately- but can you use one chipset for a C:\ & the other as D:\

To successfully achieve this POST prompts should confirm both Promise & Intel drivers have been installed with the option to enter the RAID configuration and the OS SCSI & RAID controllers in Device Manager
should also show entries for RAID controller device drivers.

My SCSI & RAID entries in Device Manager ONLY show Promise Tech. drivers. My POST prompts only show Fast Track Promise Technology information and config (Ctrl-F).

How can I set up my second RAID(0) drive? My first bootup RAID(0) C:\ drive is working fine.

Answer:asus A8N32-SLI deluxe

Not a bad board. A few things to check (if you haven't already)before you flash the bios - as I consider a bios flash to be a last ditch effort. A bad bios flash can kill your board.

--Go into the bios, and make sure the audio is enabled. It could have been disabled by someone.

--Go into the services (Start, then Run - type "services.msc" without the quotation marks, and press Enter). Look in the list for a service named "Windows Audio" and make sure it is set to automatic and is running. If it doesn't appear in the list at all, check post #16 in this thread, and follow the instructions to restore the service to the registry (including backing up your current registry):

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?p=1287964#post1287964

--It looks like this board has the Realtek ALC850 8-channel CODEC. I recommend downloading and installing the audio driver directly from the ASUS site (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A8N32-SLI Deluxe) if you haven't tried that already. Often when other drivers fail, the original manufacturers driver will work.

Hope some of this is of use. Let us know how it's going

Does the Device Manager in Windows show any question marks against the sound devices?If everything appears to be installed properly, perhaps the lead from the speakers to the sound card are wrong? Could try experimenting with them, I suppose.Not sure if this will be of any help, but might prompt someone else to come up with a solution. :-)Storic

RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independant Disks

it means using 2 or more hard drives to get faster and/or more reliable disk access.
it can read or write half the data to 2 drives at the same time to reduce transfer times, or it can mirror data between 2 drives so you have 2 copies of every file (1 on each hard drive) so if one drive fails......

I am having a computer built with the Asus A8N SLI Motherboard and have done a lot of research. I know that I need to replace the chipset fan with the Zalman cnps7000B-cu cpu cooler but getting confused about the best hard drive (in the 250 to 300 G category) and memory to have installed. Also, any suggestions on the AMD processor? The computer tech who is building it recommends the AMD Athlon 64 3500+ but I know that the dual core processors are now being offered. Because I will probably keep this new computer for at least 10 years (the one that I use now is 10 years old - still chuggs along) I try to get a computer with 'top of the line' hardware. Also, he recommends Windows XP Home but a lot of people state that the only way to go is Xp Pro??? I've been researching all of this for 3 weeks and I'm starting to feel that I need a brain transplant. I would sincerely appreciate any suggestions or comments.
 

Answer: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

Hi all,

While there are threads here regarding similar problems to mine I can't find any that match, so I thought I'd start a new one.

I am trying to get a new system up and running but am having problems with my mobo.

It's an Asus A8N-SLI deluxe (8x2 version)
CPU is an AMD athlon 3200+
I have 2 sticks of GeIL 512mb DDR 400
Vid card is an ATI Radeon x700
PSU is a Sharkoon 450w with 24-pin connector.

When I try to power on I get the fans running (case, cpu, chipset and vid card), I get the mobo LED lit up, the DVD-Drive LED blinks once and then nothing else happens. I get no POST and nothing appears on the screen. I have no HDD LED activity and no power LED activity. This behaviour is constant, the same every time I try to power on.

The mobo is properly mounted in the case and I get the same results with it set up on my (wooden) desk so I don't think it's a short (I was also bare-foot and grounded at all times).
I have tried the mobo on its own and then with each consecutive component both individually and together (including multiple sticks of ram and vid cards).
I've tried single sticks of ram in all 4 positions.
I've reset the CMOS.
I've pulled out some of my hair and done various funny dances in the vain hope the some god or other would have mercy on me.
