Your problem is in video card, try to remove and clean the connectors (bronze color) with an eraser. then re-install, if the problem still occurs try to hear beep (warning sound). we have different sound for the installed hardwares such as the memory card, video card and the boot sound. if you have installed an expansion video card remove this and use your on board video card to determine if the video card you installed is defective. and if you are using the on board video card install a new video card

Try Joey 64's solution, and if you still can't get it right then IMMEDIATELY REMOVE YOUR BOARD FROM THE SYSTEM and TEST YOUR PROCESSOR. The last time I had this problem, my board and processor got toasted.
Good luck.

I got the same problem like the one above. I am using an IDE harddisk drive. I noticed that everytime the problem occur when I am cleaning up my pc...here is what I did. Everytime this problem occur I just push the attached IDE cable to the hard drive and voila everything back to normal again. Maybe just maybe dawg...your cables are loosen up...just try to give it a little hard push ok. :-)

In the disk you burned, the bios can't read a zip file, the file needs to be extracted and as far as I remember you need to use a diskette instead of a cd. but I will look into it now.
Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 Bios warning

Please note, BIOS update is only recommended when experiencing technical difficulties with your system, And is not recommended to be performed regularly.

Moreover, due to the nature of BIOS update, there is certain level of dangers involved. BIOS update must be performed with extreme caution . During BIOS update process, your system must be maintained without interference or power loss to prevent unexpected damage.

In case of BIOS update failure, please follow instructions in your User's Manual for guidelines on BIOS recovery via CrashFree BIOS. In the event that BIOS recovery is not recoverable via CrashFree BIOS, please contact your place of purchase for further assistance on BIOS recovery.

You can get the bios from here
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4V8X-X

Get the 1008 version

its under Bios and 3rd entry, all os version 1008
File is in zip format, needs to be extracted.
the rom file inside needs to be placed in a diskette.
Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 Diskette or if you can get the bios to read a cd then that is fine also. Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 if the setup is looking for a file named as
P4V8X-X.rom

it may be required to rename the PV8XX08.rom to P4V8X-X.rom

But im not perfectly sure what you are trying todo or why it is asking for it. il have to look into this more. Comment by Ekse, posted on Aug 07, 2008 As I suspected, BestDarnGood linked us the manual and the correct page about the problem. it confirms that the file has to be renamed and placed in a floppy.

Thanks BDG

My Asus F9e doesnt start anymore. Not even in Secure Mode. What should i do ?


Did you get any error messages? Since the BIOS is available, the problem is likely with the hard drive or it's trying to boot from non-bootable media (DVD, flash drive, USB connected floppy/hard drive). Since you can access the BIOS, look for the Boot Selection Order and make sure that the hard drive is first in the list. If the BIOS doesn't see the hard drive, it may be bad or have a bad power or data connection. (You can try opening the computer and reseating the cables - see Asus for any assistance. I am not informed on opening the F9e.)
If the hard drive is seen by the BIOS:
Disconnect any USB devices (and the optical disc if it is in the drive). Turn off the computer. Unplug the notebook from the power supply and remove the battery. Wait 10+ seconds (or a few minutes) then reconnect the battery and then the power brick. Try restarting the computer. (This is a hard reset.)

What do you see on the computer screen? If you see a blinking cursor, the computer doesn't have the boot manager available (either corrupted or a new disc that hasn't had the OS installed). Use a Windows install/upgrade disc/system repair disc for your OS version (the service pack must match) or a third-party disc management tool to attempt to repair the boot manager.

You will need the optical drive as the first boot device in the BIOS or press Esc to access boot order list. (On some computers, it's F12.) For Vista or Win7, boot from the CD and follow the on-screen directions until you see a list of choices. If the hard drive was previously working, click on Repair your computer. Select the OS to repair then click Next. Select the Command Prompt option. Type in bootrec /ScanOs to get a list of available Windows OS versions on the hard drive. Use the command bootrec /FixBoot to fix the master boot record. The command bootrec /RebuildBcd will rebuild the list of Windows OS versions. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 for details.

Installing a new hard drive and reinstalling the OS may be needed if you have a SMART or AHCI/SATA hard drive error. If you have a back up image, you may be able to restore that image.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with any error messages for more assistance.

Asus p4v8x-x bad bios checksum checking for floopy floppy not found checking for cd-rom start reading P4V8X-X.ROM could not find P4V8X-X.ROM


Hi, you can download the bios file here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4V8X-X&p=1&s=15

Please select your windows version.
Select bios and click on global for download.
You have to unzip the file before you install it.

You might have to change the cmos battery out with
a new one:

ghost2233_59.jpg So the bios can remember its settings.
Thats why you get a bad bios checksum.
A reminder flashing the bios with a wrong one WILL destroy the mainboard.

Asus z92m laptop doen't startup anymore, no bios screen, just green light on for a second, dvd clicks and runs


Did anything happen recently? If you have an external monitor, plug it into the vga port and see if you get a display on bootup. Does the computer stay on or does it shut itself off right away?

Problems booting


It could be either the monitor cable, monitor or motherboard that doesn't work. It could also be that you are running a BIOS version too old to support your new parts. I would try to update the BIOS and then troubeshoot a little to find out if, and which, part is broken.

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!
Mike
