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

With good power at the plug, i get no light when pushing the power button.


Try changing the power suppy first.
The process of booting always starts with BIOS saying hello to the RAM, the Bus, the Processor, then back to RAM, and BIOS.
Make sure your Power Supply is good. Then make sure your processor and RAM match what is recommend by the Motherboard Manufacture. Many times the simple voltage missmatch of RAM and motherboard will stop a new PC from booting.

Computer will not boot up i have replaced the proccesor and still will not boot


This could be almost anything.
I ran into problem possibly similar to this before and the only thing I could remotely contribute it to was a static charge that destroyed the BIOS chip.
Always touch something metal like as water faucet or stove or even the metal PC case or something so you can discharge your body of any static charge you may have. Also whenever possible, wear a static wrist strap.
I would first take the battery out, check to make sure your battery is good. This could also give your problem . If you dont have a volt meter then put your tounge on the battery to tell if its still good enough. You'll feel a little tingle.

Replace the battery and try a boot up again. If it boots up reset the bios settings.
If it still shows the same problem. try unplugging the system then remove absolutely everything from there slots.
All PCI, PCI-E, AGP, Memory , Audio, Everything!
Then start with the necessity's only....
Install a "KNOWN GOOD" video card & memory only. Try that.
If your problem goes away you have bad hardware. Check 1 at a time
If the problem still exists I would say its either the memory or the boards BIOS chip.
If you know someone with a PC that has the same memory, install your memory in their PC or vise-a-verse-a, to see if the memory or board is good. If you find someone to let you try your memory in their PC , DON'T let it complete the Windows start up. You may force their PC to need a reactivation.
Some computer shops also carry a device that checks memory chips.
Good luck 2 u

Ram check bo0t up


The bios has an option to turn on/off specific checks on start. Go into the options and look for this.

Since you haven provided a MB number or Bios type we can not tell you how the Bios options look. You will have to read carefully through the bios options.

Ibm 600 thinkpad wont start up


No, there is no way to bypass the bios.
The bios performs the Power On Self Test...post...before booting the PC from the hard drive. IF post fails the PC will not boot.
IF you can get into the bios you may be able to chance some settings in there and get the machine to boot. Usually, there is a setting to return the bios to default values...try that.

How install new bios


After updated your bios, did you check the boot sequence?
it might have been changed. Go in to the bios again and check so the boot setting is pointed that your pc starts from your HDD.

Booting so late


Check u're BIOS settings ! There are setting that allow a delayed drive test (for the hard drives that initiate them selfs slower than the motherboard) maybe that is u\re problem. U can also do a BIOS update, and set all the settings on default ...

it can also stay that long if u manually set a disk drive in BIOS, and that disk does not exist ...., or even a faulty dvd unit ....try removing u're dvd and see if it influences the boot up time. ..
