When you put a device on the usb slot the system will detect and check what is the device then after it identifies the device it will load the necessary drivers for it. it is possible that the system is loading a corrupt driver to drive the usb device resulting to a system halt. it could be a driver related in storage devices such as thumb drives that is causing the problem.

try to update the usb drivers using the update driver option on your device manager on usb controller.

Im looking for my motherboard to download it.. and my video card..where will i find it?


You need to go on the asus site from another computer if the internet is not working on your pc thenenter your motherboard model it will give you all the drivers you need to make all the components work correctly. Copy them on a USB key or burn them on a cd if you are on another computer.

It will ask you for the CPU socket it is 478 for your board.
For your video card go on the GPU manufacturer website wich would probably be ATI or Nvidia you will get the driver with your card model from the download or support section of the site.

here is the link : Asus support link

P4pe x cannot detect hhd drive


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then :-
1. The hard drive data cable or power connector may not be inserted properly.
2. The motherboard disk controller is faulty.
3 The hard disk is faulty.

To test the motherboard disk controller, connect another hard disk to the motherboard and go into the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If it detects the hard drive, then the other hard drive is faulty and need to be replaced.
Another way to test the "faulty" hard drive, connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard disk is OK, and the fault is a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.

Not powering up


First test the MB with only the minimal components (ie. cpu + ram + vga card if not onboard). Disconnect all other components. If still not starting, try using just a single ram module, if you have more than one, to try & determine if one of them is faulty.

P4PE-X Motherboard bus speed


JAAh,

I have the same motherboard and did a little reading. The chipset on these motherboards was not really designed for the 800MHz, but it was still used by ASUS anyways. I have reduced the FSB speed on my system for increased stability. Here is the posting from another site which I found.

The 845PE Northbridge was designed for FSB400/FSB533 processors,using DDR266/DDR333 memory. (See page 11 in the Intel spec.)

http://developer.intel.com/design/ch...s/25192401.pdf

No matter how many different models of this motherboard that
Asus made, it is still based on the 845PE. Operation at FSB800
with DDR400 memory constitutes overclocking, and overclocking
comes with no guarantees (only Intel can test the chips and
bin them for speed, and the chips are not tested at FSB800/DDR400, so Asus has no way of knowing how far they can be pushed).

I've read descriptions of other people's luck with the 845PE
and it is described as "I can set the clock to 200MHz and
not a stitch more". That means even in the best case, there is
absolutely no margin left. The fact that your board runs stable
at 190MHz, instead of 200MHz, should not be a surprise, as Intel only has to guarantee the chips work at 133MHz (for FSB533).

The sin being committed here, is the user manual should state
that "overclocking comes with no guarantees". Persons interested in buying FSB800 processors, should be buying a P4P800/P4C800 or equivalent board, as the Northbridge chips on boards like that are guaranteed by Intel to run at FSB800.

If you want rock solid operation, pair a 3.06/FSB533/512K
Northwood processor with the 845PE Northbridge.

Asus P4pE not booting.


The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
