Jumperfree mode: set "JEN" to (2,3) default is (1,2) The jumper is the three pin jumper at the end of the isa bus. Then set all of the dip switches to zero/off. Now you are in Jumper free mode! //

Hi Neel, Are you running the board in JumperFree Mode? If so you shouldn't have to change any jumpers or dip switches. And the S370-L adapter card should NOT have to be set either, it should auto detect both processor core and voltage. If you don't know how to set the board up in JumperFree Mode let me know I'll walk you through it. If you ARE running in JF Mode then I'd contact Asus support. You have the right BIOS update to be able to support that proc but Asus had some issues with Intel chipset support with certain versions of the 370 adapter cards. (issues with both the S370-DL and the S370-L if I remember right) Let me know what happens, Dude

Hello download the bios version here:

By selecting your windows system.

Open bios folder, and click global for download, for the newest version.

Download also ASUS Update V7.15.04, In utilitys, and please unzip both files.

Install first asus update, select update bios from file, and select the bios version you have downloaded, the rom file, and click next.

Now the bios update process will begin.
DO NOT turn off the power, when the process is running, and you have to setup the whole bios, when the job is done.
Follow the instuctions on screen, when you have rebooted.

Good luck

What are the instructions for flashing BIOS?

Hello use auto detect here to find the right mainboard:

Download asus update, this is the easyest program to upgrade the bios, while windows is running.

Install first asus update:

When the mainboard is found, select download, and select your windows system.
Open the bios folder, and download the latest bios version.
Unzip the bios file.
Run asus update, and select update bios from file, and select the bios file, in the folder you just have downloaded ( the bin file )

Be very carefull when you upgrade the bios, because a power loss will damage the mainboard, while the upgrade process is running.

You also have to setup the bios settings, when the job is done.
You have to select F1 or F2 to enter the settings.

If any doubt download the manual.

Good luck

Motherboard p3v4x : during bootup i get a system

This error is usually caused by an incorrect setting of either bus speed or multiplier (or sometimes processor chip operating voltage). These could be set either by software ie in BIOS or by changing tiny switches mounted on the motherboard.
Have you consulted your motherboard manual?
Try here:
or try the ASUS website and look under support or the discussion forums.
This will help:

These freq and voltage settings are set under BIOS which is usually accessed by hitting the DELETE key on your keyboard after turning on your computer.
Sometimes a quick fix is to enter BIOS as per the above instruction and selecting LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS or something similar to that and then save and exit BIOS and allow the computer to reboot.. That may get you to the point of booting up without the improper freq comb error.
If you have no luck playing with the above info, shut down your computer and remove the left hand side cover on your computer box or tower, so you can access the inner workings of your computer.
Remove the cooling fan from your processor chip. It will be a large square or circular (black or silver colour).
Take a look at your processor chip. Note the part number printed on the chip, which is only visible after you remove the cooling fan. For example it may say for example SL52P or something else. It may also be an AMD chip.
Search the internet for its specifications ie search for SL52P.
For example, if it was a Pentium 3 chip running at 800 Mhz go to google and search for specs of P3 800 Mhz processor with the part number SL52P.
Google returns the following info (based on the example above) of:
ie its a chip that runs at 800Mhz speed with the memory running at 133 Mhz (800 mhz processor speed obtained by having the multiplier set to 6 but actually means the memory is running at 133 MHZ but the processor running at 6 times the speed of the memory bus ie 133x6=800 MHZ (one of the settings you need to get right in your BIOS settings)
So if you had this chip, in BIOS you would select 133 bus speed, with the multiplier of 6 usually locked down on the processor physical internal wiring.
If your BIOS doesnt allow you to play with the processor and memory bus settings (commonly done to make the processor overclock to a faster speed) the other option is that you have the DIP switches on your motherboard set to the wrong settings. Again, refer to to your motherboard manual. The DIP switches are tiny plastic switch blocks on the motherboard with a row of (usually) white sliding switches.

Asus P3V4X/S370-133/Tualatin 1.2Ghz

It turns out that while the BIOS will not appear to recognize the Pentium 3 1.4GHz Tualatin CPU (SL6BY) in my Asus P3V4X motherboard, Windows XP does! I apologize for my delay in posting this.

I have five extra SL6BY processors that I'd like to sell if anyone is interested. I need to make some money to upgrade the memory in this antique to 2GB (turns out that low density 512MB RAM does work in the P3V4X, by the way).
