Question about ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Hang-ups durring bios screen and hangs at certain times.

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... :)

Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?


with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.

thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.

post a coment if this does not work.

thanks,

1gb shows 512mb only


Your mobo is quite old and its chipset can only support a maximum of 512MB PER SIDE (technically called a bank) of a memory module. I would guess that your 1gb memory module has 8 chips that are all located on one side of the module, putting all of the 1 GB on one bank. Thus, only 512MB of your 1 gb RAM is detected and usable by your motherboard (the remaining 32 mb is most likely being used by your onboard video). You'll need to find a double sided 1 gb memory module (usually 8 chips on each side).
