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

It is looking for the windows automated system recovery disk and I have reistallation cd. how would I get this


You will need to create one.

Windows system errors, crashes and other problems may lead to a malfunctioning system or an operating system that doesn't load properly. You can create a Windows system-repair or automated recovery disc that contains tools for fixing the operating system. The CD you create will contain system-recovery options and tools like Windows' Startup Repair, System Restore and the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool.

Insert a CD into the CD/DVD-ROM drive. Click the "Start" button. Type "backup" in the search box and click the "Backup and Restore" search result entry. Select the "Create a System Repair Disc" option in the left column. Click "Yes" or "OK" if a user account control message appears. Click the "Drive" drop-down menu and select the name and letter of your CD/DVD drive. Press the "Create Disc" button. Wait for the progress bar to turn completely green and Windows to finish the repair disc. Click "Close" and then "OK" to exit the repair disc wizard. Hope this helps.

Ok,
Pop the disk in the drive and make sure the disk is clean.

How to activate windows 7 ultimate black edition rc 1 2009 beta without using internet


You must activate windows 7 via the internet. as it is still in beta / release candidate stages of developement.

I believe the reason microsoft has not enabled a phone-in activation for windows 7, is they want to be sure that automatic updates, and feedback is functional. As well as two weeks before official launch of windows 7 (2010 i believe) any windows 7 beta, rc, or alpha stage operating system will automaticly update via the internet, and begin to reboot the PC every 2 - 3 hours untill the OS has been upgraded / purchased.

Sorry i couldn't be of more help to you.

BIOS issue or ? Rebooting PC into BIOS on ASUS A7V8X-X ACPI BIOS Revision 1003, 13.2.2003


If you lose time and day, means the little battery on your motherboard is done. Get a new one, replace it, should be fine then. As far as booting into BIOS, there should be a boot option, and you can boot into a hard disk, a usb or a cd rom drive. Of course in this case, choose the hard disk that has your operation system on it.

OS will not initialize, cd/dvd-rom not accessible in Dos.


I would re-format the hard drive. Then install your main OS such as XP or 98. ( Best to do XP first). Then during installation you can set up your partitions or use Partition Magic.

Then you will have other partions to load other operationg systems. One OS in each different partition.

Then use Acronis Disc Director. On startup Acronis loads a screen and lets you choose what OS you want to use. Just click the icon and away you go.

I have xp, windows 98, and Dos 6.0 on my system in three different partitions.

Good luck

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.


Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.

Insalling windows xp


As the pc is booting press F2 or Del (dependant on bios) and enter bios set up.
Choose to make your cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit bios.

Insert cd drive before the boot up starts and there will bea screen prompt to "press enter to boot from cd", press enter and then the cdrom will go to the next step, asking press 'R' to repair or press 'Enter' to format and install windows, choose repair if you have documents you need on your pc.

The system will then go through a full repair installation, when complete your system will be repaired and everything should be as before with nothing lost.

You may have a faulty hard drive so if you cannot get windows to repair it will tell you theres no drive found.

Monitor says


Try and kill the bios. Find the jumper next to the battery on the motherboard and move it from position 1-2 to 2-3 ... press the power button a few times. then put the jumper back to normal and give it a shot.

I would disconnect the cables first before anything and attempt to boot the system.. if it boots, then start plugging hte cables one after another until you find out what's causing the machine not starting correctly.

Good luck.
