Question about ASUS (P4BP-MX) Motherboard

Firewire PCI pcb won't work

I have a computer with a P4B-MX motherboard in an HP computer. I bought a 4 port Firewire expansion board and when I try to load the 1394 driver it comes up with a "Cyclical redundancy check error - Cannot install this hardware". I put the board into another computer, which also has an Asus mobo and the same WinXP OS and drivers, and the board worked. The OS has all the latest updates installed from Microsoft. Any ideas? Thanks

I chipped my motherboard and obviously it won't work now.

I'm the kinda guy that would just solder a jumper wire across.

(Your indication was a 5mm strip of circuit trace, that was gone, right?)

I wouldn't use these ports in the I/O area anyway.
Mouse uses a USB port.
Keyboard uses a USB port.

Printer/Scanner/ All-in-one uses a USB port
Monitor is connected to a graphics card in the PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.
Don't need that blue VGA port.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

    Hello! my problem is that my two USB ports is blown. Now I want to connect more USB port on the motherboard via cable, but none matches the port that the USB or sb_link, jp1... Can you tell me which port...

    You will need to get a usb expansion card. These can be found at Best Buy,,, etc...

    Some manufactures ship with newer motherboards a usb expansion slot using the motherboard jumper configuration but your motherboard must first be able to support this type of expansion.

    I recommend the pci usb expansion. They plug into your PCI slot and give you 2-4 extra USB slots in the back of your computer.

    I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

    Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

    If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

    Manual doesnt show Ieee 1394

    You can buy an add-on Firewire (IEEE 1394) card in one of the two PCI expansion slots. That would add the firewire port on the back of the computer.
