Re: asus a7V8X- X stucks in the main screen of ASUS...

Does it come up with any warning messages in POST? if not try removing all unnecessary components, eg all cards except for video, use only one stick of ram in the last DIMM slot and all usb cables from the back except for keyboard and mouse(if usb). Boot it up then if it goes right through switch off and add a component then try again, use this process until it stops responding, then repost what caused it to stop. Otherwise if removing all those components didn't make it respond properly try updating your bios, on your motherboard it has the Asus EZ flash utility so you can do this straight from the bios screen, all the instructions and software you need can be found here

instruction links on the left, downloads on the right just make the appropriate selections from the drop-down menus.

hope this helps.

Did I fry my ASUS A7V8X-MX motherboard? I bought an old computer(with this moboard) that was working. I opened it and put in my old HD to slave it. Rebooted to get into the BIOS (just to check things...

Hi there,

I do not think that this problem is to do with your Motherboard. If you had fried your Motherboard, you would not see anything when you started the computer, you especially wouldn't be able to get in to the BIOS if your Motherboard was damaged because the BIOS is accessed straight off the Motherboard itself. You will notice that if you take out all the Hard Disks in your computer, you will still be able to access the BIOS.

This problem is probably due to a corrupt Hard Disk. Maybe you set the old Hard Disk to the Master or whilst moving your computer you damaged the other Hard Disk. This problem is known as the Windows Reset Loop, your computer will not get past a certain point in the start-up process and will then restart itself and do the same thing over and over again.

This could also be caused by a problem in your BIOS, when you did the CMOS reset, it would have probably knocked out all of the stored data. When your computer is starting up, you must go in to the BIOS and check which drive the bios is set to boot off. Even though your Slave Hard Disk is set as a Slave, you can still set the computer to boot off this drive, and if this drive is corrupted it will not boot, it will go in to the Windows Reset Loop.

If the problem still persists, i recommend that you remove the old Hard Disk which you have put in and try and boot off the Master as a single drive. If this still doesn't work, set your other Hard Disk as the Master and remove the other drive and try boot off that one.

Reading error

What type of HDD is this? IDE; SATA; or SATA II? The problem probably is that you are trying to use a SATA drive with a SATA II board. They are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.

Sata unable to recognize my book 500gb

The A7V8X-LA motherboard only supports SATA1. Your new hard drive is likely SATA2 (SATA-II). You'll likely need to change jumpers on the drive to make it compatible with SATA1.

It's a tiny bit slower than SATA2 (okay, twice as slow). But, it's still faster than PATA (IDE).

Presario SR1030NX - with a ASUS A7V8X-LA motherboard, won't boot.

those are notoriously bad boards. i have worked on 2 or 3 of those boards and founds its adefect on some voltage regulator on motherboard..
best thing u can do is upgrade motherboard and cpu and ram in a combo.. don't forget power supply unit, new stuff needs at least 350watts
