    Hi, have you tried a different mouse and keyboard, then disconnect the sata or ide cables from the motherboard to your hdd, burners and any other things connected. Try booting and see if it works, if ok then look for the faulty item. Have you tried another video card or disconnecting also and using the onboard video, also add in a video card if possible if you didn't have one installed before. If none of the above helps and it is still under warranty, speak to the people you got it from and tell them all that you have and can they suggest anything else, if no, you will need to get it replaced.

The light is probably the power light which is ok, but from past experience it sounds like the board is dead for one reason or other. Is it still under warranty? If it is take it back to where you got it, with the purchase docket if you have it and talk to them about what you have tested and ask for a replacement. If it is out of warranty, try ebay or use www.staticice.com.au to search for the same motherboard if you want to rebuild the system without having to reload windows.

If you can get anothe power supply try this first, your one could just be crook and wont crank your computer up any more, then go throught the process of removing any your memory sticks one at a time they can leave you dead in the water if they have failed, this is a simple couple of steps first if you can not get a start up. also just check all of the connectors to your hard drives and motherboards, they can come loose if you have moved your computer at all. hope this is a help.

ASUS K8V-MX motherboard "UNKNOWN PROCESSOR"


There is a processor installed that the BIOS cannot recognize. Update the BIOS in the motherboard.

Also make sure the CPU is in the CPU support list, on the same page. If it is not a supprted CPU, you will get that error.

I need changes my memory 2 pcs @ 1GB DDR1 PC3200 with 2 pcs @ 2GB DDR2 PC6400 in Asus P5VDC-MX Motherboard. please advice. Thank you


Number of Memory Slots: 2×184pin + 2×240pin
Memory Standard: DDR 400/DDR2 533
Maximum Memory Supported:2GB

PC6400(DDR2 800) is not supported by your motherboard. Also max memory is 2GB. PC4200 is the fastest memory you can install. There might be a BIOS update available from ASUS website to increase the speed but you would have to check the site.

Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?


with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.

thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.

post a coment if this does not work.

thanks,

Get XP or Windows 7.
Vista is full of bug...
But if you want it...
The make sure you got "Boot from CD ROM" as first boot piority
To do this press "Del or F12" on boot up to get to BIOS and it is in boot sequence...
good luck.

C2D?


Hi mickie,
I looked at the manual & did not see support for C2D. So I went to Asus & checked the CPU's supported. (No c2d).
To see the CPU's supported go to this Asus web site for you're P5VDC-MX mother board. Click on this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5VDC-MX&SLanguage=en-us
Look to the left of the page. Click on the link, (CPU Support). Asus will open the current CPU's supported for the motherboard.
Lets say you are looking at this CPU;
Celeron D 346 (3.06 GHz, 533 FSB, LGA775)E0,EM64T).
Look to the right where you'll see "GO". All you need to do too support that CPU is download the proper bios file & bios utility for that CPU.
Where did you see support for C2D in the P5VDC-MX manual?
Page number please? I miss many things here at fixya.....

What problem is it that you are having?
If you want to upgrade you're CPU here is the Asus link for supported CPU's P4S800-MX motherboard.
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4S800-MX
To the right of the list is the bios file that must be used to support the CPU.

If you need instruction on how to replace a CPU just let me know.

Processor for P5VDC-MX


Hey there alcouto, your motherboard supports Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium D processors. The socket set is LGA775. The FSB should be no higher than 800Mhz. It appears you have purchased the wrong CPU for your board. I hope the rest of the info helps you on your next purchase. Good Luck!
