Question about ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard
I'm using the p5vdc-mx board with a 512mb 533mhz, 80GB HD, 5500 FX nvidia gforce.
Every time I try to boot up, it takes me 2 - 3 resets before I can get to the windows boot screen, It mostly hangs during the bios splash screen or even before that.
It also sometimes hangs during the boot and I have to reset it again.
I've tried to reset the CMOS by using the CMOS reset pins, it worked to reset the cmos but to no avail, the board still hangs.
Here's the full specs:
Processor: Intel Pentium D 3.0 Ghz
RAM: 512mb Kingston ddr2 533mhz
Video Card: 256mb Nvidia 5500FX
DVD Drive: HP dvd 735 (IDE - DVDRW)
PSU: Powerlogic 450w
HD: 80gb Seagate (IDE - PATA)
I've checked the power connection and its fine, no fluctuations and I'm using a generic AVR with it. Speakers are also attached. There is also an internal modem.
Hallo, i'm Fernando Kendy from Jakarta, Indonesia
hope i can help with this problem
the mainboard has onboard graphic adapter (S3 bla bla bla)
try using it. unplug your nvidia FX5500
how is it? does it work?
if it still not working, then STOP here. something is wrong with your mainboard
if it is working, then goto BIOS configuration
change the PROCESSOR frequency to 100 MHz (MANUAL) and the RAM frequency to 400MHz
save the configuration, and shut it down immediatelly
plug the nvidia FX5500 back, and turn your pc on...
it should be working fine now
but if you still have problem, then i'm sorry... couldn't help you any further... :)
