Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

The Asus Digimax worked fine until I repaired the DVD drive. It still starts OK at the Bios stage but will not progress into launching Windows. It requests the set up disk which I do not have!!! Any guidance would be greatly appreciated - Jack

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

How to Replace Bios? Boot & Reformat Attempts Hang (on every HDD) - I guess BIOS is Corrupted


You can go to the manufacturer web site and go to support then to drivers and downloads there should be a BIOS flash software utility at their site. Click Here to go there. Select your model and make sure it is the correct one. I would also go for the automatic driver update, this will find and seek any drivers for your laptop that are needed, missing, or upgrade them.
If that does not provide the info you need their is also a support number as well as live chat at the link above. I hope this assisted you in some way. John

MY EEE PC WONT BOOT UP IT SAYS LAUNCH STARTUP REPAIR BUT NOTHING IS WORKING IT GOES BACK TO THE SAME PROBLEM


Windows is corrupted beyond a simple repair.
You need to obtain a USB CDrom drive, insert the OS disc and repair it at the 2nd stage
(the stage where it searches for a previous installation of windows).

If this fails, you will need to do a full reinstall and format the drive

I have boot mgr is missing could you help and tell me what i can do to get my pc working again thanks steve


Hello,there are a number of possible causes for "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drives, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose cables.First we are going to try the start up repair.You will need your windows installation disk or recovery disk.Put it on your cd rom,restart and watch for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD...Press a key to force the computer to boot from dvd.Once it finished loading files Choose the Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use in Windows Vista.Click on the Repair your computer link on the bottom-left of the Install Windows window.This link will begin the Windows Vista System Recovery Options.Wait a minute to search for your hard drives.
Choose the Windows Vista installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on.
Click the Next button.
The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems with important Windows Vista files and try to repair them.Your computer may or may not restart several times during this repair process. Do not boot from the Windows Vista DVD on any restart
Click the Finish button once you see the Restart your computer to complete the repairs window to restart your PC and start Windows Vista normally.
Now your done and is supposed to work normally.Let me know if is fixed.Good luck

Asus will open the bios page with F2, but wont boot


I wouldn't quite yet. Here's a solution that should fix this...First, I'm assuming that the BIOS is recognizing the hard drive in the first place? The BIOS should have a utility option to "auto-detect" the hard drive. If it does, then you most likely have a corrupted MBR (Master Boot Record).

Here's my advise: Obtain a DOS-disc (windows 95 installation disc would do just fine) and once at the DOS command line at C: type the following command after the C

C: fixMBR (then hit enter)

this will move the MBR from sector 0 to the next available sector - 1.

Now install the windows installation disk that came with the computer and perform a "repair installation"

It will load all windows sys config files and boot files. It will seem as though you are totally reinstalling windows but you will not.

At first, you follow the simple onscreen prompts to install windows and when you get to the point of entering R for repair...you don't want that yet...continue with install. on the next screen you will see a prompt for a repair installation - this is what you're after. Do not format any partitions and you'll be fine. If you cannot locate a dos disk, here's a link to download one and burn on a CD:

Best of luck!

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;

try reinstalling your operating system ( try format your cd or just repair it). The system will automatically detect the driver for your drive but if it was not listed in the bios try checking the cables attached to your drive.. or still if not.. the drive may be damaged.

Sata DVD Ausus using K8V-MX


TRy to load the "optimized bios default setting" in your bios setup. If not solve the problem maybe in your windows issue.

try to boot up windows in safe mode and then start it normally and let the windows fixed the problem on it.

if still problem exist maybe you need to repair your windows installation using the new SATA DVD to resolve problem regarding the issue. or reinstall it. (Note: important files was no guarantee to retain, backup files when doing this).
