Re: ASUS A*S-X not recognizing cpu

You should be able to press F2 or Del on boot up to get into the bios, but you should replace the battery first then set everything up as the cmos has obviously lost it's saved settings because the battery is flat.

I have an ASUS A8S-X Motherboard with a FX60 socket 939 CPU. It is the best running computer that I ever had. It is nearly 5 years old. I have started getting a "Boot Failure" - CMOS - Battery...

The symptom you have could easily be caused by a old battery. Typically computers use cr232 batteries which can be easily replaced. Turn off the machine, up plug it for 2 minutes, take the cover off and look for the battery. It is about the size of a dime. It will be held with a latch of some sort.
Buy a replacement battery at most battery locations and replace. Note which side is up on the old battery before you take it out; the larger size or smaller size; replace with the new one the correct way.
Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...

You will remove the CMOS battery and wait for 5 minutes .
Hope it will solve.
If the problem is same please change or clean the RAM with eraser and install it again.
If the problem is same please , the mobo is in warranty should change .If period expire Now you will create a identity mark on BIOS chip and ,you should remove resoiulder the BIOS chip from *********** board .and install it again tightly.

If all the procedure will fail think your mobo should change as new.

Installed Intel P4 630 CPU on ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1 mobo. Cannot do POST. The mobo runs fine with Intel Celeron 326 fine.

Hello Mafatbhai, What beeps are you getting at POST?
Here is a list of BIOS beep codes.
Well the mobo should not have any problems with the new CPU. Please ensure though that you have removed the CMOS battery to reset it. I have included a link to ECS for your specific board. Download and install all of the available updates starting with the drivers and then the BIOS updates.

P5NT won't boot

Have you tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery with PSU off and then shorting the 'reset cmos" (or similar) pins on mobo?

Also found this on the ASUS web site under the specs for the P5NT WS board...

01.gif ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support DVD. Users can reboot their system through the support DVD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process. ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

Have you tried this?

ASUS P4SP-MX motherboard no POST and no beep without ram

Try removing everything attached to it. The only thing should be the cpu and cpu fan. Turn it on. If it is the same, then it is your motherboard. If you do get the beeping, then start installing things one by one starting with the memory.

Fans runs but no post,no beeps.

The best advice I can give you is to remove the motherboard battery (UNPLUG THE PSU BEFORE YOU WORK ON THE MOTHERBOARD) and let the system sit for about an hour. If the CMOS settings are corrupted, removing the battery will erase the corrupted data in the CMOS, which will automatically reset the CMOS to the default settings... Then, plug the battery back into the motherboard, and try to boot the system...

If that doesn't work, you should disconnect EVERYTHING attached to the PSU, and remove ALL of the add-in cards (modem, NIC, soundcard, TV tuner, whatever you have), and install ONLY the CPU, the heatsink/fan (don't forget to PLUG THE CPU FAN IN), ONE stick of RAM... you get the idea. DISCONNECT the HDD, the FDD, the optical drive, and ANYTHING ELSE from the PSU. When you're ready to test the system, you should have ONLY the CPU, the HSF, and one DIMM plugged into the motherboard. Attach the PSU connectors (both the main ATX connector AND the auxiliary 4-pin 12-volt connector) to the motherboard, and try to boot the system. If it works, SHUT DOWN and UNPLUG THE PSU; then install ONE component (the floppy drive, for example), reattach the PSU, and reboot the system. If the system POSTs, shut down, unplug, and add another device. If the system does NOT complete the POST process, the last piece of hardware you installed is probably the culprit.

Take your time with this; be methodical, and make GOOD notes about the steps you've followed, so we can help you work through this problem...

Best of luck to you; keep us "posted" on your progress...
