Make sure the jumper on the hard drive has 1 set to master and the 2nd one to slave. or set them both to cable select. i bet you have them both set to master and thats why it only boots when you have just one hooked up

Computer won't resume after standby (os: vista)


Make sure all Vista updates have been installed, and check the ASUS website for any bios updates. I believe that motherboard had a known issue with stand bye.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

Asus p5b-mx motherboard not showing display but every thing is on


Hi camlamm, check out Asus CPU supported list link;
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-MX&os=17
See if your CPU is in the list.
Bios not booting? If you are receiving any display on your monitor the trouble is not the graphics card. Suggest you clear the cmos jumper. See page 1-26 instructions your manual. This Asus board is warranted for three years. If nothing gives you access to the bios, suggest you call Asus tech, M-F, 8:00AM to 5:00PM EST at: 1-812-282-2787.

Good luck camlamm!

2 Sata Hdd not supported


Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB.
There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port.
The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual.
All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu.
At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

Good luck rafiqbrush!

Have you installed RAM? If not the machine will not boot. You may also need to enter the BIOS setup to set the CPU and DRAM voltages and multiplyers etc. Follow the instructions in the manual for setting up the CPU info in the BIOS. Are you sure your PSU has enough guts to run the setup? Many times have i seen setups fail because a cheap power supply has been overstretched.
