ASUS P5N-SLI Motherboard

Hello, I just received this motherboard today and installed all the necessary hardware and there's just one problem; it won't recognize any keyboard I use. Upon the first power-on the lights on the keyboard (scroll, CAPS, and num lock) all flashed, but I can't press DEL or TAB to get into the BIOS menu. Any ideas?

Re: ASUS P5N-SLI Motherboard

You should try updating the bios - here is the link for all the updates; and here for the procedure; If that doesn't work, try clearing the CMOS (ask again if you need help with this) What sort of keyboards are you trying? go for a basic simple keyboard, not wireless, not specialised. Use a ps2 port keyboard not USB. Hope this helps :)

Yes as long as the 9800gtx is PCI Express x16. I am assuming the p5n-e is the Asus MB. Since I couldn't find any other Manufacturer using that MB#

HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board:
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.

Good luck stukove2000!
Any more questions?
