Question about Motherboards

Win XP re-starts after Turn Off computer.

System: Intel P4, 3 GHz HT, ASUS P5QL SE Mobo. 1GB RAM. Mobo is new. Did a Win XP pro repair with a student version with SP3 included. All works OK except that on the Shut Down - Turn Off command, the machime re-starts after about a second or two. The fans actually stop for a while then all starts up again. A normal re-start still works OK with the fans not stopping. Have cheched all BIOS settings and Windows power management settings. Have also sequentially and progressively unhooked case speaker, power and HDD LEDs, case fan. No change. Has anybody had the same?

Dotmgr missing xp


Hello i hope you mean boot mgr is missing.
This means your windows is damaged, by a virus/malware or a faulty harddrive.

The solution is to install windows again, or make a system repair with the original windows disk.

Here is how to make a system repair:

manager.html

A second option, is to download this program:

http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd

And burn the ISO file to a disk, and let the pc boot from it.
This cd has a option to repair a damaged boot file.
With this tool, you can save most of the files on the harddrive.

Here is a smart program, that burns ISO files:

If you have to make a new install of windows, you can download the drivers here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5QL%20PRO&p=1&s=22

Please select your windows system.

Open the driver folder, and click global for download.

Any files from here, needs to be unziped, before you install the driver.

Good luck

Hi i my computer suddenly started to shutdown and turn on again after a fev seconds.some times it goes in to windows but soon after crashes.it has wrked for over a year and this was a home built...


Try these....
Overheating problem in your PROCESSOR!
Check the temp in your BiOS and the setting of your processor!
Check also the power supply and upgrade it to hifgher wattage!
Clean your processor HEAT SiNK, dust and dirt might have acumulated!
Check the HEAT sink position, if its flatly fitted on top of procie, and scrape the old silicon paste between ur proci and heat sink and put a NEW ONE!

Encountered this kind of prob.. the prob is in the PSU unit(Power Supply Unit)!

These might help you!

ASUS P5QL PRO memory problem


This problem occurs because of confliction between RAM memory frequency.
For that you must have 2 RAM with same memory frequency and same company chip .
Then it works fine with 2 RAM.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

Computer automatically restarts after shuting down


Did you install the drivers for the motherboard already? If so check the connections from the power switch to the board which all should be on the bottom right of your mobo. I switched a + and - one time and it went into a infinite look of turning on and off = / Beyond that ASUS Customer support sucks and I would just try to RMA it and start over.

16g RAM on 32 bit mobo?


Well...i never heared of a 16gbram mobo and also no OS is able to support it propery and also u don't need so much memory but whatever.You could use smaller modules like 1gb or 2gb but you must know wht type of memory it uses and also what's the minimum amount of ram that can be used.

Boot error / No video out


Ajit,

The beeps are usually due to RAM or key board issues.

I would try by plugging it into a VGA socket of a monitor to see if it works.

Do you have heat problems? one suggestion is to try and reset the bios to default by moving the jumper on the mobo to do a hard reset.

good luck

Smeags.

Motherboard supporting both windows-98 and win-XP-pro


it would be difficult to advise you as to which board to go for, as there are many different things to take into consideration, i would look at www.ebuyer.com and choose one then do a google search for any buyers comments. The problem with Win 98 is that newer mobo,s will not have driver support for it, as with Win98 you have to continually revert back to your win98 cd to install certain files which are no longer compatible with new boards. If you wish to dual boot a system; using XP and vista would be more suitable for the type of hardware you will be using.
