Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Additional USB ports not recognised

I have just built a new PC with an ASUS P5QL-E motherboard, running Vista 64 bit. Everything is running just fine apart from some of the additional USB ports I added.

The onboard USB ports are fine. I also connected the two additional USB ports on the front of the new case (Antec P182) and they work too. The problem is with the 4 additional ports that I transferred from my old PC. They do not work and do not even show up on Device Manager. They worked perfectly well on my old PC (which had an Asus KV8SE motherboard). I bought and added them to the old PC maybe 3 years ago, but I can't find any details on them now.

I wonder if they are USB 1 ports, but I don't know how to check. If they were, could that be the problem? If not, can you suggest anything else?

    what are these ports connected to internally?

    there should be a power cable and a data cable that connects to the mainboard or to a usb port

I installed Windows 7 in the Asus M2N-MX series motherboard but could not load audio drivers. Where can I dowload audio driver from?

The drivers for Vista should work just as well for Windows 7. This is true with almost everything about Windows 7; in fact, Windows 7 is actually NT kernel 6.1! (Vista is NT kernel 6.)
1) Go here: 2) Type M2N-MX into the search box on the left. 3) Select M2N-MX from the results. 4) For your OS choose Vista 32-bit if you installed the 32-bit version of Windows 7 or Vista 64-bit if you installed the 64-bit version. 5) Have fun.
Good luck.

I've installed my new Sabertooth X58 MoBo, and a new i7-950 3.06 GHz processor. System has been running fine, but when I try to connect my wireless internet adapter via USB 2.0, the adapter works fine...

Did you try installing the usb network card to another usb port?? for exm, the front, another usb port? If so, and you still get the same result then it's a operating system issue. I had the same promblem with my Hp using windows vista with a external wifi card. I'm 90 percent sure it's a driver issue, when you installed, was there any option to which o/s and bits you are installing this device too, if so, try correcting the right o/s and bit (32 or 64). If after correcting it and you still get this, the rest of it is a driver issue, either it's incompatible, or driver needs updating. Other then this, I'm not sure too.

Need Manul for ASUS SKT-775 P5QL/EPU S/L 1333 FSB

Look at the "tail' of each of the new fans.
They probably will have 2 or 3 wires going into a WHITE-coloured plastic connector. Look for 3 gold-coloured pins on the motherboard -- that will match the holes in the white connector.

The add-in video-card _should_ have a connector that fits into one of the WHITE or BROWN sockets on the motherboard, while the "spine" of the video-card fits flush on the "back" of the computer-case.

Your motherboard probably has a built-in Ethernet port -- there's probably no need to add-in a separate Ethernet card.

You probably do _NOT_ need to cite an ID/password -- just connect your Ethernet port, via an Ethernet cable, to either your router or your cable-modem or your ADSL-modem, and your computer will automatically obtain an IP-address.

2 Asus motherboards with no sound

There's only really two things you can try.

One, check first into the BIOS and make sure that the integrated sound is enabled.

Next, check to see if your video card, if it is PCI express, because it sometimes has their own sound.

If you have done these two things, then perform an ASUS update to the BIOS. Perhaps the BIOS is flaky.

If this doesn't work and you have checked everything else, then you'll need to contact ASUS directly about the motherboard issue.

Usb keyboard no longer recognised during boot process

Restore your PC before the BIOS update. BIOS updates are not required until & unless you face problems while running a software and it will prompt you for BIOS update. Do this update if its vital othewise do not intergere in the BIOS. I faced the same problem and after unistalling all drivers and again reload the original driver from MB VD slved it. Another thing in BIOS is USB setting at high-spped & full-speed. Try changing those settings and retry. Mine worked!...sodeep
