Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
From what I`ve been able to read here it appears that I may have a dead Motherboard. For a long time the computer just shut down after a period of usage. If I tried to restart immediately it wouldn`t restart but gave some unintelligible voice message. One time on hitting some F key I got a (voice) message about a heat problem. Now when I start it up it says "No floppy drive detected". Then I`m directed to hit any key to reboot. On hitting a key I get the message "No drive attached to FastTrak controller, The bios is not installed.
FastTrak 376 (tm) BIOS Version 1.00.0.16
(c) 2002-2005 Promise Technology, Inc. All rights reserved"
It then goes into an endless circle of "Hit any key to boot".
I would like some advice as to how best to procede to correct this problem. "Best" might be translated as "cheaply" but maybe to upgrade also using my present computer components exclusive of the MB and CPU. In other words what should I purchase to replace those two items (and CPU cooler?) ?
Your computer overheated You Must
1) check power supply fan is clean
2) check CPU fan is clean
3) check the Heat Sink has all vanes etc clear of fluff and dust
4) check the Heat sink has a thin and I mean thin layer of heat sink paste on it
5) Vacuum out all dust from case
Do all the above and check if it starts Hopefully it will
