Question about ASUS (P4BGV-MX) Motherboard

1 Answer

Bootup Cold boot gets to mobo display. POST appears normal. Then it may take up to four times of shutting down the PC using the power button (OS shut down not available obviously) eventually Vista boots, but soimetimes only partially (to logo and half the audio). Next Vista will boot completely. From then on during the day bootup will be normal most of the time. Cold ambient temperature seems makes it worse The mobo is the ASUS P5KPL/16OO. CPU Intel dual core. RAM.Graphic card HD all tested in other PC and found to be Ok.All the above symptons remain the same with a formatted HD and clean install of either XP PRO or Vista OS and leaving off all peripherals such as printers etc.! Help please. Cheers, Bill Ruffner

Locked out from eee box 1035 need to reset bios how?

Try this. Right out of the manual. The reset button is the little pin hole next to the power. Will need a paper clip that is straightened.

Entering the BIOS Setup
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings that are needed for system startup in the PC.
In normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most
conditions to ensure optimal performance. Do not change the
default BIOS settings except in the following circumstances:
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
You have installed a new system component that requires further
BIOS settings or update.
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Quickly enter the BIOS
Windows8 boot time is quite fast, so we developed the following
three ways for you to quickly access the BIOS:
Before booting up the system, insert a straightened paper clip
into the BIOS Reset key.
BIOS Reset key
Press the power button for at least four seconds to shut down
your PC, then press the power button again to turn your PC back
on, and press F2 during POSt.
When your PC is off, disconnect the power cord from your PC's
power connector. Reconnect the power cord and press the
power button to turn on your PC. Press F2 during POST.

Unable to enter setup in acer aspire 5315

You do not say what OS you are running. You could try F12 at bootup to see if you can get to the boot manager that way.

I have a PC based on a DQ57TM board. It generally boots fine but whenever we experience power cuts I cannot turn the machine on. I've sent it back and they replaced the board and the problem persists. I...

I just built a gaming rig based on the DQ57TM mobo with a first gen i7 860 and am experiencing the EXACT same issue as the original post. The previous "answer" failed for me, holding down the power button until the machine shuts off then trying to boot again did not work. I fail to see how it would, since holding power button tells the mobo to power down, but I guess there may be something built into this mobo's architecture that disconnects power from different parts of the mobo at different times resulting in successfull subsequent start-ups.

However, the GOOD news is that I have found a fix. Powering down the machine (whichever way floats your boat), unplugging the power cord, removing the cmos jumper from pins 1-2 and placing that jumper on pins 1-2 on the pins directly above the cmos pins for 5 seconds or so, then replacing the cmos jumper back where it was. This clears the cmos settings. This seems to be working reliably for me. For more details on clearing cmos settings on this mobo see page 62 of this document:

Also, FYI, in my search for answers I read that this mobo is unable to use RAM with operating voltages above 1.6v. I haven't tested as all I currently have are 1.5v sticks.

Also, I have what appears to be the most current BIOS version TMIBX10H.86A 0050. I wonder if there is a setting in the BIOS that can stop this issue, it's really annoying needing to open up my machine every time a hard shut down occurs.

UPDATE: I just downgraded my BIOS version to 0025 and the problem no longer persists. I cant help but wonder what other problems with my setup might be unaddressed now, but at least I dont have to clear the cmos every time I experience a hard shutdown with this machine. Oh, and now the machine chirps 2-3 times 6 seconds apart during power up. I have no clue what that means. I did try all of the BIOS options, the OLDEST one Intel has on their downloads page is the ONLY one that works. Maybe they will fix it with a new BIOS, but I won't get my hopes up, the current latest version ending in 0050 was released in 2011...anywho, hope this helps some of you! This was definitely one of the more bizarre mobo issues I have experienced.

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU

You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

I have an issue with the screen scrambling everthing and the pc just shutting down. The last time it restarted and froze up

what version of windows ... start in safe mode does it still happen... does it shut down or reboot ... most common cause of this issue is a driver conflict ... if it is not a driver conflict check the display drivers ... if updating or reinstalling display driver does not work it may be the video card ... if the video is integrated install a expansion board vid card and disable the onboard video ... if the card is not integrated remove it ... restart ... shut down and replace it then boot again ... if you have a newer system check the video card fan which may be $#$@ up and overheating ... if you cant trace it to hardware try using a boot cd .. one of the linux cds ... if it is ok with an alternate OS try doing a OS repair on windows .. the other possibility is a memory issue if it is a cheap mobo with shared video ram...
