Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard

1 Answer

Bios problem, i guess

For some time my computer freezes and only thing i can do is manual restart. But, few days ago, even that didnt help. Now i cant power up my comp. When i start only i can see is black screen and no sounds that something is wrong. I did clrcmos and manage to start comp but when i turned off next time i wanted to start up same problem happened. I tried with other memory, power supply, graphic card.

Current configuration: Asus A8N-E, AMD Athlon64 3200+, ATI HD2400, 1GB Ram Apacer, Maxtor 80GB HDD

Your problem is very common with old computer.
The reason might be humidity or dust.
Please consider taking your m/b out of the case and the rest of the components (like video card and memory simms) and with a brush dipped in alcohol clean the whole m/b everywhere you can (both sides) scrub it hard especially places you see dust or rust.
I use it all the time although I have to say you need to do it at your own risk.
Good luck and thank you for using agadycom.

No video displayed after updating bios

Yes, it is true and common. Anytime you update bios, also find the method for resetting/undoing the bios update.
go to the mobo mfg website and find how to reset the bios. This usually involves removing the battery, and jumpering the reset.
The reset may not reset/undo the update, but simply reset the bios to defaults.
Depending on the bios type the restore may vary.

Hello there smohsin_p574.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Let me guess ...

You have just recently (or at least prior to this latest bootup attempt) performed a mechanical reset of the BIOS/CMOS password by either removing the motherboard battery, or (more likely) manipulating the JBAT reset jumper from pin position 1-2 to 2-3 ... right? Furthermore, you did this of course to reset a forgotten/lost password ... right?

If so, don't get out the panic button, you simply forgot to REPLACE the jumper back into the original 1-2 pin position. Don't feel bad ... it could happen to anyone, even me :)

Now read that message you computer is telling you ... makes much more sense now doesn't it?

I gotta know if I'm right on this one, so PLEASE do post back EITHER WAY ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.

Problem with bios image and reseting

You can do two things
1. take pin from BIOS and let it reset.

2. Take BIOS battery and reload battery after 2 minutes.

And if these things do not work then finally take BIOS update from net and install the update and defintiley this will help you.

Thanks & Regards

My hard drive is not working!!!!

You can access your HDD from the old computer but cannot boot your HDD from that old computer. I think you down load a file with virus, maybe your computer was infected with virus coming from that crack. Means you have to re-install your computer.

Help clear bios

When you remove the battery from the motherboard wait after few seconds (30), reboot your computer without the battery and press the BIOS key (F1 or F10 or DELL key) will not ask you any password. Turn it off and Then put back the battery.
