Re: overclocking failed

Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.

Well, you are right the power supply is good. But the power isn't enough to support your system. My advise, you have to change your power supply to "real power type". The price is more than the normal type even if it is the sama rating.

Hi, On other motherboard models of Asus, similar problem was corrected by: 1. Updating the BIOS; 2. Actually overclocking the FSB to slightly higher than default (say 170 or 175 from 166, 140 to 150 from 133); 3. Slightly increasing the default processor voltage supply by increments of 0.05; 4. Replacing the 3.0 volts Lithium battery; 5. Replacing the memory to next higher speed; Never had problems like this with MSI, ECS or Intel boards. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Problem restrart pc /NO AUTORESTART

It sounds like you're trying to overclock your CPU, and you have exceeded what the CPU is capable of, under the current conditions. When you start the computer, enter BIOS setup (e.g. press the DEL key), and adjust the CPU settings to default. If you're not sure how to do this, choose the "LOAD OPTIMAL SETTINGS" or "LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS" option from the main BIOS menu. If you are not getting this error until after Windows has started, then there is software installed that is trying to overclock the CPU for you. Uninstall it. It may be a program provided by Asus, or may be a third-party program. It will probably have "tweak" or "overclock" in the name. Overclocking can achieve an increase in performance, but will void the warranty, and does reduce the lifespan of the parts, and tends to make Windows crash more often. It can cause immediate failure of the parts. It should only be done if you understand and accept the risks, and have decided the reward is worthwhile. For most users, it is not worth it.

A8S-X restart problems

Silver Dragon isn't thinking about the problem here. It is related to the BIOS Hanging. The System doesn't POST so how could it possibly be a program?
I have the same problem with a customer computer and after reading many posts on the internet, I have come to the conclusion that these motherboards (ASUS A8S-X) are junk.
I have been building PC's since 1986 when I opened my business and sold my first custome built 286-10 system.
There is something inherantly unstable ablout these motherboards and from what I can gather, the AI for the overclocking feature is on crack and doesn't properly set itself up so that it overclocks the CPU to the point it will not operate. Many people have tried many approaches to solve this problem, but none works consistantly. My suggestion is to call ASUS and tell them you've done some reading and by now they know the design is defective and you want a replacement or refund.
The reason you can post after a reset, is that the board returns to default settings and is then pretty much useless as you can not select with boot device to use or anyhting else that is BIOS-centric. The system hangs on restart and the only way to continue is to return to BIOS Default settings nulifying the entire set-up process. The most common errors I have found to be the BIOS Checksum error and the Overclocking error.
This Board Is A JOKE. ASUS should be ashamed of themselves. REALLY!
