Re: Asus P4pE not booting.

I have the same issue with an ASUS P4PE-X. I could not come up with a better description of the sound than police car. Anyways, we had a damaged CPU (from over-heating). Replacing the CPU solved our problem, and the system POSTs fine now. A little late, sorry.

Re: Asus P4pE not booting.

Obviously you have a piece of hard ware gone out. Pull them one by one trying each time after removal until you find she runs fine again then replace the faulty hardware and you should be back on track.

Re: Asus P4pE not booting.

The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.

First, try resetting the CMOS. If it is not working, replace the RAM. Could be a damaged RAM

Exployer 8 download crashed my intel asus p4pe with windows xp . I cant boot up. I get the voice welcome, then when it should boot up, it clicks and starts over. Never ending loop.


I would recommend booting your pc to Safe Mode and restoring your system back to a date BEFORE the crash happened. When you power on your pc, press F10 or F8 until you hear a beep. This will bring up a command function for you to select what you would like to boot to . Choose Safe Mode.

Good Luck
