Question about Abit AB9 Pro Motherboard

ABit AB9 Pro 775 PCI Express Problems

This board is notoriously fussy about its PCI Express, when running Vista. Sometimes you can boot the machine from cold and there is no display at all, even with a brand new out of the box PCI-X card.

then at other times you can boot it and it will only boot if "Failsafe Options" is selected from the BIOS

Using a normal and better in my opinion standard PCI card resolves the problem to some extent.

The PCI-X on this board really sucks - don't buy it unless you want to spend a lot of money of finding a PCI-X card that will work reliably for a period of time, or stick with the well tried and tested normal PCI graphics adapter. DOn't expect to much help from ABit either. I tried that one too.

I now have a customer with a machine which sometimes works and sometimes does not. The board is only a year old and so far we have experimented with 4 graphics PCI-X cards all with the same result.

Recently we have experimented with changiung the power options in Vista to see if that helps.

Best bet stick tyo ASUS motherboards, you don't get the problem.

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in...


Ok..try this. Disable the flash screen and quick boot options in bios. What might be happening is the prompt to boot from CD isn't being displayed due to one of those two options.

Manual and Bios for Abit AB9 Pro Motherboard


Hello seany187,

What I'm doing since your system doesn't want to download from Abit, is creating a zip file with all the drives, manuals, utilities and bios updates for both XP, XP64, Vista, and Vista 64, since I don't what OS your on, and you will be able to download them from this private site HERE. And because the files are so large, I split them into, I'll post the second one as in a comment as soon as it's completely up on the site.. You shouldn't have any problems with these downloads, unless you have your IE settings to high.


Good Luck & don't forget to leave a rating based on my Solution.

Thanks Mark

Stay tuned for the second file!

ABIT AB9 PRO WILL NOT POWER UP


Sounds like it's going to die or its gone faulty,
Might need to replace it or take it to a computer store and have them check it out.
