Question about ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Barebone Kit / ATX Mid-Tower Case with 350 Watt Power Supply / Keyboard / Mouse (988834)

1 Answer

Backup server won't boot up

Gets stuck at Satalink screen. Shows #1 and a number after it, cursor stops on #2.
It was a barebone kit we bought from Tiger Direct years ago. Asus K8V Se Deluxe Socket 754 Kit, AMD Athlon 64, Atx Mid-Tower Case. I tried unplugging the external devices to see if this would help but it still gets stuck in the same place.
There are no beeps when I try to start it.

    You are correct. I tried unplugging the external storage devices and still had the same problem, but then I took out the swappable hard drives and it boots up. (we just got these last week) Is there any configuation I can do to make it recognize those devices when it boots up?

    Did you install a driver or update before this happened. That problem is common with printers being plugged in and also extrenal drives.

Is it USB or SATA drive? In the BIOS there is an option to allow USB boot device.

Asus netbook cursor stuck

Make sure there is not a lock on the top middle of the touchpad that you can press to toggle the lock/unlock. if so, press it. Otherwise I would try booting up in safe mode and see if the cursor locks.

Wont go into phone mode

Assuming you've tried pulling the battery and booting it again, you could try doing a hard reset on the phone (this would erase all data on the phone), by starting up the phone while holding down the volume up button while turning the phone on, waiting until you get a white screen with 3 skateboarding androids on it, and select clear storage (use the up/down volume buttons to move the cursor, power button to select), then volume up to confirm. If the phone still won't boot up after doing that, you're going to have to take it to a store, as that boot menu is the only thing that you can get to come up if it won't boot all the way up.

Our server hp proliant ml 150 g2 was working with 4 gb RAM. BUT few days before, there was a problem in our ups system. so its turned off. after that, when i started it, its stuck on pre post startup...

Try the same steps but not in that order. The problem seems to be appearing during booting.
1.After boot-up try powering on the external drive
2.Shut down the computer from the start menu
3.Then power off the external drive
4.Hopefully on the next boot-up problem will be solved

Upon powering on the system won't go past the boot

> problem with barebone system
> asks for a password in the Setup

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Look on the motherboard for three pins in a row, with a jumper between #1 and #2.
Move that jumper to connect #2 and #3. Count to ten.
Move that jumper back to #1 and #2.
The motherboard has been reset to its "factory" settings, i.e., NO password.
Connect the AC power.
Turn the computer on.
Press <DEL> to enter Setup.
It should NOT ask for a password.

Today I did backup and wanted to test backup, so tried to boot from cdrom but it didn't boot, so I tried to to Bios to see if it has correct booting order, while trying to press F2 button, I noticed it...

Backup discs are not bootable. A backup can be restored to an existing system.
Place your XP disc in the drive and reload XP then restore the disc you produced.
