Question about ASUS Intel 850 Chipset P4T-E (P4T-E/WOA) Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a new GeForce 7050M, windows Freezes, Kubuntu no load frzz

Hi, I have a brand new GeForce 7050m-m mother board that came with a Combo 1640 AMD processor, I purchased the RAM at the same place I purchased the combo board/processor, I installed a 2gig 240 PIn stick of Corsair RAM.
Problem: WIndows XP Pro installed fine, only it will freeze while using the system, I can be surfing, and eventually the computer will also Power off and back on, I attempted to instill Kubuntu, and during the install which starts out fine,, will stop while setting up, and at times the system powercycles,,

The Only thing I have added to this Combo is a 500 GIG Sata Drive, and of course the memory. Can anyone tell me, what might be the problem? I am leaning toward the Ram, It is a single stick of 2 gigs of Corsair memory,,

I have also purchased a second board of the exact thing, and Processor, and installed my hdd and Memory, and have the exact same problem, Nothing different what so ever..

Please help.

    ok, sounds good, thanks for the tip, I will get the setting set in BIOS, to be able to read my bsod. I will be purchasing a new Ram Stick, this weekend, Most likely tomorrow, I really hope that works. i need to get back to work, with a stable system, I would use my laptop, but It has its up and downs,, I had to restore it multiple times,, and can't handle that, Plus the PC board with the setup, is very fast,, which is what I need,

    I will update this post once my RAM is installed, and I test the unit.

    Thank you again for the help..

It could be the processor also (unless you bought another one of those, too), but chances are that you are right in suspecting the RAM. It's a quick troubleshoot, as well - buy a new stick, install it, see what happens.

The system behavior is a tad curious - not something i've ever seen with a memory problem - usually you'll get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and an error code that vaguely refers to the memory. Nevertheless, something isn't right, and I don't think a HDD can cause that level of mayhem, but RAM certainly can.

Let me know how it goes after you swap it out - I'd be interested in knowing if that was it.

    You can go into your BIOS setup and select the option for the system to stop on all errors (rather than rebooting. This way, you can pull the error code from the BSOD. I think the RAM is the most likely culprit, though, and overall, one of the least expensive things to fix.

    Replace the RAM stick, and see what happens. If the problem persists, we can take a look at the BSOD and see what sort of error code you're getting.

I have no sound on GEForce 7050M-MV2.0 I run


Need to cross check some points:

-> check if Realtek already installed in Add/remove Programmes ( can be some CMI entry and Broadcom entry)

If yes->

Start Windows in safe mode.

-> Ignore (cancel) all “found new hardware” prompts

-> Uninstall Realtek(CMI) and Broadcom applications from Add/Remove Programmes

Reboot into normal mode… ignore all found new hardware prompts again

run the driver CD again for both.

I Hope it will work.

I have just fitted a new motherboard (geforce 7050m-m)but get blue screen for a split second after windows xp logo screen

What does the blue screen say? Normally, there is a STOP ERROR or something like that. You might also look for any text in ALL_CAPITAL_LETTERS_WITH_AN_UNDERSCORE_BETWEEN_WORDS -- like that. Follow up with that information and you're much more likely to get a good solution.

Failure of realtek audio driver installation

I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:

1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.
