Question about EPoX EP-8K7A Motherboard

Unable to restart

I seem to be unable to restart my computer. Problem: Whether I choose 'restart' in Windows, or try to save my settings, this happens. Symptoms: I cannot start my computer again after I try to restart. Nothing appears on the moniter. There are no beeps. Whether it attempts to boot or not, I have no way of telling. This continues every time until I reset my board. But then of course, it starts once again after I try to restart. I have: - EPoX EP-8K7A Motherboard (not Brand new, but i know it works, is has before until i rebuilt everything in my pc) - 3x hard drives 7.2k RPM - 2 sticks of 512MB memory - 128MB GeForce MX4000 Card - 350W Power Supply - * I am not sure of anything else that is relavant *

Problem with ASUS P5GD1 mobo

Is the cpu fan working, remove all the memory,but one stick, then try each stick you have. Then, When you get your post, enter safe mode, this does not use full video, so if you can, and it works in safe mode, it is probably your video, if not it is either
your power supply or another piece of hardware.

Unless you installed something on windows just before this problem.

Post back if you need more help, any code errors would be great to post.

Help please - Asus IS7 board, downloaded a chipset driver - should'nt have, since then computer starts, might go through to windows, might not, then computer goes to what seems to be half power, fans...

Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand each branch of the hardware-tree, and remove all the components installed by that "chipset-driver".
Keep doing them all, and then restart your computer.
Windows should re-detect your hardware, and load the correct drivers.

If that fails:
Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start and navigate to "System Restore".
Choose a check-point dated at a date/time before your screw-up.
Choose "restore" to that date/time.
Follow the on-screen directions.

On a pc that I use only as the connection for a printer, i am getting a dark blue screen that says:ASUS P4VP-MX Del to run setup. However, it will not respond at all. Turned off computer and got same...

If you still have your manual open to page 1-15 section 1.11
Set the bios jumper to pins 2&3 for a few seconds. Than move the jumper back to pins 1&2 (Normal). Boot your system & enter the bios menu. Reset all your settings, save & exit. If you still receive a blue screen chances are there is an issue with your hard disk drive or another device within the system. You can also try pressing the F5 key during boot up & choose Safe mode with command prompt. C:\space fixmbr press enter
If you are unable to do anything you'll have no choice but to reinstall windows. Blue screens usually show an error message of sorts.

Good luck!

LCD not being detected

Restart computer -> Keep tapping on F8 key till safe mode option appears-> login using safe mode -> when login complete -> rightclick on my computer -> properties-> hardware tab -> Device Manager -> click on Sub-option "Display Adapters"-> Right click the adapter inside -> properties -> driver tab -> rollback drivers.
Follow instructions and restart and choose normal windows if asked.

If not successful, goto start -> all programs -> Accessories -> System tools, -> system resore -> choose restore to a previous... -> choose a date before the date you updated drivers. dont go 3-4 month, you might loose data. choose a closer date to the date you found the issue. follow the instructions.

restarts automatically and recovery screen comes. dont worry this is normal. when done, restart the system and see if resolution is alright.

get back to us with what has happened, we will support you further.

thanks, have a nice day....

Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System

Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..

Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.

Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Hope to solve your problem.
