Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard won't post.

I just purchased this motherboard today. The sales rep. where i bought it claimed he was positive that the board is compatible with the Intel Pentium D915 CPU. I tried posting the board out of the case and it just doesn't post. I put the same CPU and RAM back into my old board, which works fine. This is the second time i ran into the same issue and I'm going to ask for my money back tomorrow. The reason I would like to use this board is for a replacement for my present ECS board which has an intermittent problem.

I flashed the bios on my Asus motherboard M2N-E, and then replaced the processor with a quad. Cleared the cmos and now the computer won't post? What do I need to do to get it up and running again?

Try to put back the old procie, if it runs again that means the new procie is not compatible with board.
Read the manual for the compatibilty issue for your MoBo.
Tell me if it works.

Is there a graphics card available which is compatible with the old Asus P5GD1-FM motherboard. The Radeon X700 in place has died. The Radeon HD5450 I bought to replace it does not work at all, so back with...

Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.

Intel motherboard

Intel gives 3 years warranty with every new motherboard purchased. If you have purchased this motherboard during this 3 year period then you are eligible for a free repair or replacement.
To claim, just take your board back to where you purchased it. They can take care of the rest.
Thank you.

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo

It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.
