Question about EPoX EP-8K9A Motherboard

1 Answer

Still stuck... Hi mate... the Microsoft Support link that you sent me is great but.... my computer (the one that works) does not have a floppy drive!... strangely, we decided to put a floppy drive in the new machine... if we somehow made a boot floppy disk.... However, I have a DVDRW drive so is it possible to make a boot CD? and how? Thanks

    hmm... I'm sure I've tried putting in the CD but it didn't work... and also it doesn't seem to be responsive to certain instructions from the keyboard! :(

If you are referring to the NTLDR issue, you can achieve the same by booting from the XP CD and entering the Recovery Console, as outlined in methods 2 and 3 :o)

I'm looking for a recovery disk for my MSI ms-1013 notebook.


unless you made one or you were provided with an installation disk

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
or

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.

Create MS-DOS bootable diskette

When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.

1. Place diskette in the computer.

2. Open My Computer, right-click the A: drive and click Format.

3. In the Format window, check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.

4. Click Start

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes

Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.

hope this helps you

Won't boot


Under normal circumstances you do not need to boot into a drive to flash your BIOS. Normally you would take a dos boot floppy and the latest BIOS firmware and put them on a floppy, which is then inserted into the floppy drive before turning the computer on, and if the bios boot priority is set to boot from floppy before the harddrive, it will ask to boot from the floppy, which allows you to flash the bios from a command line or text graphical interface.

*Note that you may be able to use a cd, but floppy is the oldschool way - if you could boot into an operating system you could use the modern methods which flash the bios while running an OS.

Your board comes with Q-Flash in the BIOS, which means you are able to log into the bios and flash it using this utility and by putting the BIOS firmware on a floppy and inserting it into the computer.

Please see Here for instructions and Here for the latest firmware.

If you cannot access the BIOS, meaning the BIOS is completely bricked, then you will need to buy a new motherboard. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a BIOS which is completely bricked.

Hi again mate


The files are not available for download, no. However, even pirate copies (which I don't normally support ;o)) will have these files on them (either in the ISO or on the CD - whichever you used). NTbootdd.sys is a machine specific file, and is a copy of your drives device driver, so downloading it would do no good. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;305595

New RAM, computer stays on intel screen and occasionally continually beeps


Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4V8X-X&SLanguage=en-us

Good Luck!
Have more questions, feel free to ask.

Continuously reboots


Hi there
First you will need to boot up. When you do this you need to go into bios and then go to boot and disable the hard drive floppy and any other drivers. You must make sure you keep the cd driver as 'able', save setting and exit out of bios. This will let you reboot. After it`s done, the partition in the computer will reboot the computer. Make sure to go back into bios and able the hard drive, floppy etc...
I had the same problem, and solved it this way.

Starts not all the way


Hi Let's start from square one. If you are using PS/2 keyboard, is it one that is working? Please double check this. If it is, then maybe your motherboard PS/2 keyboard port is faulty. In this case, try using a USB keyboard to see if you get a response from the keyboard. Also, for the 'no floppy found' problem, have you verified that this floppy drive is working? If so, is the floppy cable plugged in correctly? The twisted part of the cable should be plugged into the floppy and the other end into the motherboard. Let me know if this works. Good Luck
