Question about ASUS MB P5E3 PREMIUM/WIFI-AP X48 RT (90-MIB3L0-G0AAY00T) Motherboard

1 Answer

Asus p5e3 freezes at POST.

Asus P5E3 Premium goes part way thru POST them reads "Press F1 to run setup. Press F2 to load default..... When these are pressed nothing happens. Still frozen. Even pressing alt and F1or F2 gives no response.

I tried to reload the BIOS with flash, and the support DVD, and USB flash disk. No response.

Please help.

    DEAR CHRIS (ZIRAFFA),

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS.
    i HAVE PRESSED EVERY KEY ON THE KEYBOARD MANY TIMES AND IN MANY COMBINATIONS.

    I DID NOT CONSIDER REPLACING THE BATTERY SINCE THE MB IS NEW AND THE PARTIAL POST POPS UP SO QUICKLY.

    I PUT THE CLRTC JUMPER ON 2 & 3 FOR OVER A MINUTE, BUT I DID NOT "TURN THE BATTERY 180 DEGREES" OR PRESS THE RESTART SWITCH FOR A LENGTH OF TIME.

    SINCE A PARTIAL BIOS (RECOGNIZING THE MEMORY, THE HDDS, AND THE OPTICAL DRIVES) REPEATEDLY COMES ON SCREEN TO THE SAME STOPPING PLACE, I DID NOT CONSIDER THE BATTERY.
    WHEN I UNPLUG PC AND CHANGE JUMPERS CLRTC TO 2 & 3, SHOULD I PLUG THE PC IN OR PRESS RESTART OR TURN THE BATTERY SINCE THE SAME PARTIAL BIOS KEEPS RETURNING????
    DOWEN

Hi David,

Maybe you could buy a new CMOS battery and replace the old one..
Might be worth a try..

Hope this helps

P5e3 deluxe motherboard. Computer starts ok but with nothing on the screen until the welcome logo. This means cannot get into bios or safe mode. Computer runs well otherwise


Your bios may be set for quick boot, and does not show the bios information. You can still access the bios by hitting F2(or possibly DEL) right after powering up. You can then change settings inside bios

I NEED DRIVERS DISK FOR ASUS P5E3 WS Pro. WHERE CN I DOWNLOAD IT?


All the drivers for that motherboard can be obtained from http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Just input your motherboard model in the search box in the upper left hand corner and search. It will then ask you for what operating system you are looking for and take you to the driver downloads.

I have a new P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP MB. I have fitted one new 500Gb SAT drive to SATA1 connector I am trying to load Windows XP Pro, but each time I try, I get STOP 0000007B message. I know the drive is OK...


Why do you have your SATA configuration set to IDE compatible if you're using an SATA drive? You only need to do that if you have an IDE drive in the system in most case. Try setting your BIOS to failsafe mode and see what happens.

I'm building a computer, using a p5e3 deluxe with wifi. I have the bar minimum hooked in, and when I turn on the computer, I end up with the ps fan coming on and the case fans working, but the cpu fan does...


Make sure you have the cpu fan plugged in. With Asus the plug should be right beside the RAM sockets. It will be marked with a small cpu fan and will be either a 3 or 4 pin connection. If your cpu fan has a 3 pin plug & the motherboard has a 4 pin connection you can still use it. Just leave one pin not plugged in. Hope this helps.

P5E3 motherboard, wn XP lagging, USB lagging


Hi csoda,
I have not come across anyone having this issue with the Asus P5E3 deluxe motherboard but have had others with same troubles as you different boards & system configurations.
No issue with Asus & the quad 9450. You can read FAQ’s for you're Asus board at this link. (Look to the left under Related Link). http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5E3%20DELUXE&SLanguage=en-us

System lag & system reboots seems more related to software issues but can also include some hardware devices including the CPU overheat. CPU overheat usually shuts down the system not restarts. (Check CPU fan. Clean fan if dusty with clean paint brush & canned air).
In pc repair finding the problem for software is often long & difficult. Suggest you update you're antivirus software. Than run full systems scan. (Just to be safe). You can disable system restarts through system properties/advanced/startup and recovery/settings. Remove the check mark next to automatically restart. If you're lucky windows will display the error for restarting windows. I would suggest format & complete fresh install of windows. All the issues have two things in common. Window & the primary hard disk drive. If you are up to it, you can download the hard disk drive's software tools/utilities & setup software from the manufacture’s web site. Most Mfg's provide software utilities to allow you to create either a bootable floppy disk or bootable CD disk so you can check the drive's stability. The software can check for error's & repair any if found. You also can setup other features that can not be done with windows or the bios. You can set up cluster size & format type just to name a couple. Since windows is still working, suggest you back up to CD (If you have a burner) or to a memory stick, you're personal data. If the Mfg's tools/utilities finds a problem it will fix it & you are sure to loose you're data.
Lastly, there are also windows systems defrag & windows disk cleanup utility. That may help with lag but not with keyboard (try swapping the keyboard). Sound skipping is more related to disk performance or corrupted song.

Good Luck csoda!

Mike
