Question about ASUS P4VP-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Pc will not boot and cannot get into BIOS

This problem PC belongs to my daughter and it will not always boot, it occasionaly has started with crtl/alt/esc depressed and with the xp home sp3 cd in the drive, but is not starting the complete xp home.
I have tried to boot into BIOS without success, and have tried a combination of various suggested keyboard combinations to no avail, the crt/alt/esc being the only one that has opened xp (I think with the CD)
There is not a lot on the hard drive but it has been used on-line with dial-up adsl only, and has gradually worsened over a period of weeks,
Any help would be appreciated

IF you are sure its not a problem with the monitor--and from what you say it IS getting some power and if you are not getting any beeps--Can you boot to the BIOS? If not ,could be a problem with the power supply-check output voltage and/or test with known good one (cheap on Ebay).

Bios speed slow fast karni hai


First of all, your computer must be completely powered down and turned off before starting this process. You won't be able to edit the BIOS in sleep mode or hybernation mode. Next, power on the PC and enter the system BIOS. How you enter the system BIOS screen will vary according to your computer's manufacturer. This usually involves a series of keystrokes. Which keys are used will depend on your system. Now that we are in the BIOS screen, we are ready to speed up Windows XP boot time. Find the Boot menu and select it using the arrow, Tab and Enter keys on your keyboard.In most systems, you'll find a Quick Boot option. Enabling this will skip common system self tests that occur automatically when the computer is powered up.
In the next step to speed up boot time, look for the Boot Device Priority option. You should change the first boot device to your hard drive. This will speed up boot time, but won't allow you to boot via a boot disk like CD or floppy. If you make this change, then need to boot from a disk later, you can re enter BIOS and change it back. Next, choose the option Exit and Save Changes and the computer will restart.
Always Remeber to do this process carefully because a wrong action will cause destruction and make your computer useless.

Hello gphillips397!
Abit has released an updated BIOS for the IC7-MAX3 motherboard which fixes quite a few issues with your motherboard including one that can cause the system to hang with certain memory modules. The updated BIOS is HERE and instructions for the upgrade are in Appendix G of the User Manual or a general guide is HERE

If you want the computer to boot from the CD, you need to tell the computer to boot from the CD. At start up the computer runs through each device one at a time and tries to boot from it and it will boot from the first device that has a boot log. Right now your computer is set to boot from the hard drive before the CD drive.

Always back up your computer before going into the systems bios menu.

After a backup, upon starting the computer, press F12 when the bios selection appears shortly before the operating systems starts. Once in your bios menu, go to the boot order and tell your computer to first boot from the CD then your hard drive; then your disk drive if you have one.

After you are done, you can go back into the bios menu and change it back to booting from the hard drive first.
