2 Answers

ASUS m2n32 won't allow me to go into setup; shuts down...

Everytime I press the delete key to enter the setup option, the machine shuts down. I have tried to temp install a Windows XP Pro 80g Western Digital HD, but all it will do is come to the screen to give me options like, "start windows normally, safe mode, etc. Can't get the SATA drive to boot up, machine keeps shutting down. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Try to reset your BIOS by removing the button cell located at your motherboard and put it back. Check the SATA connector of your hard drive and make sure it fits right. Boot the machine and set-up to "boot from CR-ROM". And install new WINDOWS XP.

I have asus mother board P5GZ-MX and the problem is i can't turn off the vga onboard on this motherboard....Please help me with the best solution...


Did you install the graphics card first, then try to install the drivers from the graphics card's CD? This
method is doomed to fail.
Why?
Because Windows 'sees' a new hardware device, and tries to match up one of it's generic drivers. There
wasn't any drivers installed from the CD, so Windows just found the next best thing.
The drivers CD should have been installed first, then the computer turned off, unplugged from power, and
the graphics card installed.
Now the monitor is installed to the graphics card, and you're on your way.
This bypasses the default setting of using the on-board VGA.

What to do now? Delete the software you have installed in your computer, and start over. (Start>Control
Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Graphics software>Remove)

Also you may want to see if an IRQ has been set for PCI VGA. (It's Plug n' Play or otherwise known as PnP)
Go into BIOS Setup, and set an IRQ for the PCI VGA (The term you'll see is -> Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA)
How?

Don't know if you've entered your BIOS Setup before. If so, disregard Number 1 below. (I'm not trying to insult your intelligence)
1.After you press the Power On button, the computer manufacturer logo screen will come up, (or instead
of a pre-built computer manufacturer name, it will be Asus. Computer manufacturer logo? Examples: Dell, Gateway, HP, and so on) Watch your monitor screen closely. As SOON as you see the logo splash screen,
start tapping the Delete key. Tap in 2 second intervals. You will now be in the BIOS Setup utility.

2.You're in the Main Menu. Look across at the headings. Second one over -> Advanced.
Press the Right Arrow key on your keyboard. Advanced will now be highlighted. Press the Enter key.
Now you're in the Advanced sub-menu.

3.See the ->Onboard Devices Configuration heading? 6th heading down. Use the Down Arrow key, and
highlight ->Onboard Devices Configuration Now press the Enter key.

4.See the ->Advanced PCI PnP Settings heading? Use the Down Arrow key to highlight it. Press the Enter
key. Now use the Down Arrow key and highlight -> Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA. Use the Right Arrow key to
highlight Yes, or No. Either Yes, or No, will be to the right. You want it to state Yes. Use the Minus key,
( - ), and Change Value. Change it to -> Yes
Now press the Enter key. Then press F10, and the y key. (It will look like a capital Y for clarity. You'll
be tempted to hold the shift key down, and press the y key. This = NO. Just press the y key. The y key is
for Yes. ->Yes you want to save changes)
Now press the Enter key.
Your computer will restart.

Have you tried clearing the bios? there's a jumper in the motherboard that let's you erase all settings done in the bios and return it to its original state. Some motherboards even include a password erase jumper for the bios. Check your motherboard manual for the location. Just place the jumper in the clear position and return it back. Some motherboards may require you to turn on the pc while in the clear position and then turn them on again in the normal position to perform a through clearing.

If this isn't working you might be dealing with a corrupted bios... data on it might have got altered by a virus or some error. So now it doesn't work as it should.

If you can't boot your PC and enter windows or browse the internet, then you must work from another computer and download a bios image from the manufacturer web page and look for an alternate method of bios update that lets you update your bios from a floppy disk or maybe from a pendrive.

If you can access windows and the only problem is that you can't access bios, then do a bios update through windows directly, downloading the new bios image from the manufacturer's webpage.

Take note some motherboards won't boot up if there's a problem with the CPU fan, to protect the CPU from burning.
