I actually did a little research on this one. I downloaded the User Manual for this board. USUALLY, there is a jumper on the board somewhere that needs to be set in the correct position. I looked through the manual and can't find a jumper for this . I even looked through the bios setting just in case it might be covered there, no luck. If you can't find an undocumented jumper on the board somewhere labeled something like TRPWR, then I would try the reset next. My suggestion would be to use the LCRTC jumper to reset the board. Heres the procedure according to page 1-17 of your manual:

Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)

This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.

Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMDS, reinstall the battery.

You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R) feature. Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter settings to default values.

I've read all the responses above, and none help. I have the same MoBo with the same problem. For you others, this jumper for the Chassis Intrusion is right next to the jumper for the CMOS Clearing (CLRTC) pins. Unfortunately there's no way to turn it off in the CMOS eitherr. Mine is set with the two close pins connected, and I'm getting the exact same response, even after resetting the CMOS. I took the jumper off, and same result. I think the mobo is messed up and am going to contact ASUS about it. It seems to be a common problem with this particular board.

    I found the folowing solution:http://kanri-sha.livejournal.com/4268.ht... Or in two words - the method of only three easy steps: 1) Set the chassis jumper by default (3-4 pins of the chassis connecnor at the MB). 2) Switch off the power from the ~ 220 V, power supply or the MB, and set off the BIOS battery. 3) Move the CLRTC cap at the 2-3 pins. 4) Wait for the several seconds. 5) Move the CLRTC cap at the 1-2 pins. 6) Set on the BIOS battery and turn on the power. Good luck! :))

There is a setting in the BIOS of some motherboards that detects when the case has been opened. That can be useful in a corporate environment, but pretty much useless for home systems. It usually be F2 or DEL. Press that key. When the BIOS Setup opens, check the bottom of the screen for the navigation keys. Go through each page until you find the Intruder Detection setting. Once you find it, disable it. Save and exit the BIOS setup and the OS will start. The Intruder alert should be gone.

Good luck, and please let me know haow it works out for you!

Videocard not working


Try removing the new card, booting into BIOS, change your video setting the slot of your card: I believe your card is PCI-E, save changes and exit. When it starts to reboot, turn the computer off, install the new card and then try rebooting again. You may also have to boot into Safe Mode\Uninstall the original video driver or disable that video component and then try rebooting your system.

Chassis intruded


Hi

this is a setting that needs to be reset in the bios.
when you turn the computer on, at somepart of the screen the computer will say press this button to enter setup or bios. press the button when asked to enter bios. in bios you will need to find case intrusion detection and turn it off. Its probably in the monitoring part of the bios.

t will take too long to locate the correct manual for your computer but I took another computers manual and the bios settings may be a little diffrent but basicly.

this should be in the H/W monitoring page.

we are looking for chassis intrusion, turning that to disabled or off will remove the problem your facing. ones you have turned it off you should be able to turn it on the next time you start up and it shouldn't complain unless the case is opened again.

Its a good protection in a public enviroment, for example a employee might steal some ram from a computer or other parts with this feature enable the owner of the pc will be aware that someone has been inside and will check the internals.

Its not very useless at home since its very unlikely to happen but there are people out there who might do this at work or other public places.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse
