Question about ASUS A7V8X-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Lock ups Several conditions cause my PC to consistently lock up: 1) If try to use laser mouse, AND the Cable Modem is engaged. (Note the laser mouse used to work just fine) 2) If I put in a USB memory stick in. I am running XP. Sometimes the computer will lock up at random. If I try to reboot, I only get to the "DDR 333Mhz" during bootup and it stops. I have to then manually shut the PC down, then unplug the cable modem, re-plug it in, un plug again, and then boot while modem is connected. The PC boots fine, and once it's ready to go, I plug the modem back in, and it works.... for an indeterminant amount of time. Lastly, any time I have to update Windows, or basically anything, the PC gets cranky, and I have to go through the gyrations above. I do have USB camera, Printer, and keyboard as hardware. The Flash drive will always kill the system even if all of the other USB devices are disengaged. Any thoughts, other than blowing this dang thing up? Thanks for any help, RV

Is the laser mouse USB? If so there is a grouping of settings in your BIOS that has to do with USB storage devices, mice, and keyboards. It would appear that your USB keyboard controller is already enabled but the mouse and USB storage devices are both disabled. If you need help navigating through the bios let me know or look it up on google.

I have a 2006 Dyna Low Rider. The clutch cable is loose and the clutch will not fully engage. If i pull the cable out of the housing, about the same length of the metal cable cover then squeeze the lever...

Adjust the clutch. To do this, follow the cable down until you come to a rubber bellows type cover. Slide the cover up or down to access the clutch cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inward all the way to get as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then. stand the bike as straight up as you can safely get it. Remove the derby cover. In the middle of the clutch assembly is the adjuster screw. Loosen the nut and turn the screw inward until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE INNER CLUTCH HUB. Back the screw out and back in several times until you get the feel of what you're doing. Turn the screw inwards until you feel the resistance. Then back it back outwards 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut. Replace the derby cover.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about 1/8 inch of freeplay. Squeeze the clutch lever several times and recheck the freeplay. Lock the lock nut and replace the cover. This should do the trick. If not, repost and let me know and I'll tell you how to check the throwout bearing. This will require pulling the clutch release cover off the right side of the transmission where the clutch cable goes into the transmission.

Ride safe.

Scanner locked

Check your green scanner lock which is under the scanner area right in that area where your copies comes out of the machine. This is the most common cause of the "scanner locked" condition. The lock gets accidentally engaged as it is located right where you reach in to get your copies.
If the lock is not the problem then you may have a scanner drive issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Back brakes lock up

There are several conditions that can cause this to happen. You want to start out by checking the parking brake assembly, particularly the cable for the right rear or passenger side brake. Make certain the cable moves freely when the park brake is applied and released completely when the park brake is disengaged.
Next, remove the rear brake drum and check for any oil, grease or brake fluid contamination of the brake shoes. Any contamination of this type will cause the brake to hang up when applied.
If that checks good, make sure the brake system hardware if working properly and components have not dislodged from there installed position be sure there are no broken return springs or very rusted and weak components.
Generally what happens is a wheel cylinder begins to leak, contaminated the shoes and cause them to become sticky when the shoe contacts the drum or a return spring breaks or comes off for various reasons.
Check it out and let me know.

Not working

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual: The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] [1] Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] [2] Switches to output 2
[Numlock]+[-] [A] Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.
Source: (Scroll down to "Quick Start Guide" and choose CS62U out of the drop down).

Other information:
In AutoScan mode, the switch remains on one port for 10 seconds before switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed. To exit autoscan mode press [Spacebar].

When in AutoScan mode, no mouse or keyboard controls. If the user moves the mouse or uses the keyboard while switching the connection between computer and the switch might be interrupted and cause erratic mouse movement and errant display when using the keyboard.

Maximum resolution supported is 2048 x 1536 @ 75Hz.

If mouse movement is erratic:
make sure you do not have more than one mosue driver installed. Make sure that the driver is either for a standar PS/2 mouse or a Microsoft compatible PS/2 mouse. Make sure you do not have any mouse drivers loaded in your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT files. Avoid moving the mouse or pressing the mouse button when switching ports on the switch. You can reset the mouse and resume porper mouse movement simply by unplugging the mouse from the switch and allowing 2-3 seconds before plugging it back in.
