On start up my bios will beep statin error with the speed of my chip fan? I have disabled this warning message from comin up but im havin problems with pc (very slow and wont multi task) so was wonderin if it could be down to that? Plus I havent bothered puttin on the rentention bracket would that effect the performance and my last question I want to plug it into my tv which only has these connections
2 SCART sockets.
Component video socket.
Rear AV socket.
Rear DC socket.
Am I right in assuming that I will need a DVI to a HDMI lead for it to work?

Re: cpu chip fan
This sounds as if the motherboard arrived with some form of issue. It has been happening quite frequently with ASUS boards recently. The retention bracket which connects the heatsink/fan to the CPU? If so, yes, it should be connected to ensure the processor remains cool. You are correct, you will need a DVI-HDMI cable. Not to worry, though. They have become quite popular recently.

1. Check if fan is spinning. If not, replace with new one or check cables. 2. Check if there are no swapped fan connectors when reconnecting mb cables. 3. Check BIOS update on HP website. Choose your OS here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3339287& 4. Check for a BIOS setting for disabling the fan monitoring. 5. Install a monitoring app which reports fan speeds and temps. See http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html 6. Check if CPU fan works.
I always suspect overheating first in these cases. Are the fans, especially the fan on the cpu heatsink running?
You can check the system temperatures on most systems by booting the PC and entering the BIOS setup ....often by pressing the DEL, ESC or F2 key repeatedly as it starts up (the screen will tell you . which key to press to enter setup) . In the BIOS setup navigate to the "HArdware Monitor" or "PC Health" section. Watch the CPU temperature. On idle in the BIOS setup the temperature really shouldn;t go above 40C.
If it's a lot higher than this then the CPU heatsink fan needs attention.
Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.
I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.
I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.
You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.
I bought the same motherboard this past year (used) and installed it with AMD Athlon 64 fx-57, Antec P180 case, 550 w power supply. I had the case cover off to check the fans when I first fired it up. The AMD oem cpu fan hesitated at power on for a few seconds, which worried me. It started spinning normally and I then shut the system down and waited a few minutes before restarting it. It spinned up fine so I put the cover back on. I started getting the same error you mentioned, so I updated the BIOS to 1013 version. That didn't solve the problem. I ended up disabling the warning in the BIOS as I got tired of seeing it, as I could see the fans were all spinning and the CPU temperature was at about 26 to 34 on cold boot.
I recently checked on this problem and seems many others with this board have this problem. One fellow said he mailed off a question the the problem to ASUStek and they replied that it is just a glitch, that the fan is "smarter" than the BIOS, as it will hesitate to spin fully at start up if the CPU is cool. The suggestion was to disable "Q Fan Controller" in BIOS. I did and don't get that warning.
As for the yellow question marks under manage in Windows, you need to install the drivers for all of those devices, and they will be on the disk that came with the motherboard. I use the latest drivers from the ASUS site, but the only one I couldn't install was the ACPI ATK 0110 Virtual Device that came out in 2007. When I try to unpack the .rar file it says Corrupt Headers and refuses to use the driver from that file. So, I use the driver from the disk.
