Question about ASUS P4S800D-X Motherboard

2 Answers

OVERCLOCKING When I press the power button on the front of the case, the pc seems to start with a bit of disk drive whirring, no beeps though, and the monitor does not turn on. I then have to turn off the power off at the wall, turn it back on, press the power button on the front of the case, and then the PC starts and shows the following message: Overclocking Failed! Please enter Setup to re-configure your system. Press F1 to Run SETUP Press F2 to load default values and continue As I haven't changed any settings in the BIOS, if I press F1, the BIOS shows exactly how it was before. The PC then starts fine and I have no trouble whist in Windows. If I press F2, the PC then starts fine and I have no trouble whist in Windows. If I shut the PC down completely, and then press the power button on the front of the case immediately afterwards, the PC starts up fine. If however, I wait few minutes to turn the pc back on, the same issue arises, ie the pc doesnt start up and the monitor doesnt turn on.

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.

I had exactly the same problem.Upgrading the BIOS did nothing. I had a 1 gig and a 512 memory modules. By removing either one, I solved the problem. Either would work by itself, but not together. There must have been a compatability problem with them working together.I don't know what the speed of either one was. Good luck.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

No beeps, no video, fans working,

no the floppy disk is not faulty, it is normal and required that the floppy disk drive light blink to indicate that the drive is working. And about the power on the power button might be stuck inside that is why it keeps turning on immediately you connect to main power

Computer not turning on

probably it is your operating system. try to recover your windows by using the recovery disc that came out with your e machine or find another widows to install but do not format the hard disk rather replace the existing one.

System fail due to cpu overclocking, voice message on reboot, after turning the adaptive overclocking feature on in the bios. I cannot clear cmos and get back into bios to turn it off again. I have tried...

Disconnect the power cable, press and hold the power button. Open the case, remove the cmos battery and short the cmos battery connectors (just touch both the metal tabs center and edge at the same time) with a screwdriver. Replace cmos battery, reconnect the power and power on. This should reset the BIOS to default settings.

The 2 extra wires will most probably be temperature sensors.
If your using the onboard video, then make sure you have memory in the first DIMM slot (it will say DIMM1 beside it)

If that dosn't solve the problem then try these:
  • Remove the memory and reseat it. Make sure to put it back in the correct way. There is a notch towards one end that will match the notch of the memory slot. Press it in until the 2 clips lock fully, then give it a gentle wiggle side to side while pushing down still.
  • Listen to the beeps your computer makes when starting up. A single short beep is what you want to hear. If you hear. If you hear something else then post back what it does. There are long and short beeps that could be involved.
  • Disconnect all the IDE cables from the back of the drives. You can leave the power cables connected. When they go back in they also have a notch and can only go in one way.
Try those for a start and post any progress you make. Also just double check the video cable is correctly attached at both ends to the computer and to the monitor.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios?

Of course floppy is the easiest but if you configure a flash drive with flash drive utilities to be bootable, and the BIOS will support it you can flash from the USB flash drive.

Problems after Power Management changes

Experience a similar problem with a FIC MB. I cleared CMOS then removed MB battery for 1 hour. Restarted the unit with just the video card and hard drive installed. After unit rebooted I added sound card, network card, etc.

FIC P4M 915G/PD1 system fails to Power Up

You should always try a new power supply if possible. After all, it is one of the most likely components to fail - it's got moving parts (one or more fans), just like your hard drive (spinning platters), one of the other most likely parts to die.

That said, in this instance it probably is the mobo. FIC made great motherboards, but they got out of the business so you won't find the same one anywhere. If you have to replace it, you may be able to get out of a Windows reinstall by getting a motherboard with the same chipset, which looks like a 915/G, though any 915 based board might do. You may still need to do a repair install, but in many cases the same chipset allows you to boot and then just load all the new different drivers for the new board.
